Dino, starring Ricci Martin - His Son Remembers
Starring Ricci Martin as Dean MartinWhile there could be only one Dean Martin, his youngest son, Ricci, has put together a new and exciting show called "A Tribute to Dean Martin, His Son Remembers". In his show, Ricci takes you on a walk down memory lane, singing many of his father's hit songs like "Memories Are Made of This," "Volare," "That's Amore," "Houston," and "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime," just to name a few. There is also lots of humor in the style that made us all fall in love with Dean, and during certain musical segments there will be photos projected on a screen of Dean's family life, his Vegas performances and his hit television series, the "Dean Martin Show," featuring the biggest stars of the day. Some photos are so personal that no one has ever seen them outside of Dean's immediate family.
In a heartfelt, emotional segment of the show, Ricci tells the story of Dean and Jerry's break-up, along with a touching account of the loss of his brother Dean-Paul. Also shown is an award winning music video that he directed in the '80s for MTV, featuring his father singing "Since I Met You Baby." 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 as only his son could.
During the show's eight week run at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, as well as it's nation wide tour this year, Dean's fans, young and old, had a rare opportunity to get to know Dean Martin as never before. The show was received with nightly standing ovations and attended by many show business luminaries including Frankie Avalon, Bill Medley (Righteous Brothers), Penn & Teller, Latino comic Paul Rodriguez, and others.
