While there could be only one Dean Martin, his youngest son Ricci takes you down memory lane in a loving tribute to his father. Dino, His Son Remembers features Ricci singing many of the familiar songs like Memories Are Made of This, Volare, That's Amore, Houston, Sway and Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime.
There is also lots of humor and stories behind the man, lifted from the pages of Ricci's best-selling autobiography, That's Amore. In the style that made us all fall in love with Dean, Ricci's banter with his band, The Pack, is very reminiscent of the Rat Pack days of old Las Vegas. During some musical segments, there are photos projected on a screen of Dean's family life, his Vegas performances and his hit television series, The Dean Martin Show that featured some of the biggest stars of the day. Some of the photos are so are personal, that no one has seen them outside of Dean's immediate family.
In a heartfelt segment of the show, Ricci tells the story of the break up between Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.
To add yet another dimension to the show, Ricci includes the audience in his tribute by stepping off the stage for a question and answer session, fielding questions about a very private Dean Martin. The Q&A continues to be one of the funniest and memorable parts of the show. Ricci also shows an award winning music video that he directed in the 80's for MTV, featuring his father Dean singing Since I Met You Baby.
Ricci is a versatile singer, musician and producer, whose vocals truly make each of Dean's classic hits come a live.
Ricci's band, The Pack, features Musical Director Billy Hinsche and other world-class musicians and singers.
