“We may never see such greats as Frank, Dean and Sammy again in our lifetime but the good news is that as long as such talented impersonators as these continue to exist, we may not need to” – Chris Longhurst – Uxbridge Gazette
“I can honestly say that having toured with these guys, they are as close as anyone will ever get to my dear friends – Frank, Dean and Sammy. At times it was just like being back with my pals at The Sands in the sixties – so much fun and it really doesn’t get any better than that. As for David Alacey – well this guy really is Sinatra – it’s frightening”.
Las Vegas Legend – Buddy Greco
