On August 12th, 2017 we held a Palazzo event called “The Boys are Back in Town: An Ode to the Rat Pack”. It was immensely fun and we wanted to share a bit about it with those of you who couldn’t make it and help those of you who did, reminisce.

Our evening opened with Aaron Shoemaker, who’s velvety voice seems almost impossible.

We heard many comments of shock, throughout his performance, from patrons who had originally thought we just the actual Dean Martin album playing. Talent like his doesn’t come around too often and we are so thankful he shared it with us. If you’d like a chance to see Aaron perform, he is hosting a variety show in December here at il Palazzo. Check our “Upcoming Events” page to learn more.

Next come the delightful meal by our very own Chef Paul. The Parmesan Crusted Chicken bathed in a Garlic Cream Sauce was heavenly and the sides were very complimentary. Our bellies were full after one plate, and yet we went back for more. Kudos to the Chef!

Then came our final act, Gooch and His Las Vegas Big Band, and boy did they bring down the house! The Band was incredible and Gooch hosted the evening seemlessly, with witty banter and fun stories.  The horns were red hot by the end of the night, as was the dance floor. We will most definitely attempt to get this band back, if they are not worldwide famous by then.

Overall, the night was a huge success and we hope next time we will see you there!
