"King Of Cool"

Written & Performed By Christian Cavallo

Featuring The Songs Of Dean Martin

New tickets on sale!

Christian Cavallo brings life to a tribute to the ever charismatic and much adored ‘King of Cool’, Dean Martin, on the centenary year of the crooner’s birth. Dean Martin was an Italian-American crooner whose career flourished over several decades.

As a singer, Martin frequently topped the pop charts throughout the USA, UK and Australia. He also had successful careers in television as a comedian and presenter, and featured in many early silver screen classics. He is also well known for his collaborations with Jerry Lewis and for being one of four members of the Rat Pack.

Drawing from their shared Abruzzese Italian roots and love of easy listening and Italian music, Christian portrays Dean, sharing his most loved songs while telling the story of his life from humble beginnings and family life through to super-stardom and international success.

Featuring a live band and 6 Australian #1 chart singles, including Volare, That’s Amore, Everybody loves Somebody and Memories are made of This; and featuring a string of top ten singles and perennial favourites including Mambo Italiano, Sway, Ain’t That a Kick in the Head and Dream a Little Dream of Me, King of Cool promises to have you toe tapping through the 40s, 50s and 60s.

The following songs are interwoven through a recount of Dean Martin’s life, including his hits:

That’s Amore, Mambo Italiano, King Of The Road, Sway, Ain’t That A Kick In The Head, Everybody Loves Somebody, Memories Are Made Of This, Return To Me, I’m The One Who Loves You, Dream A Little Dream Of Me and Volare to name but a few.
