Memories Are Made of This: A Tribute to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin Coming to Arlington’s Regent Theatre Father’s Day Weekend 6/17-19

Proceeds From Friday Night’s Concert to Benefit The Ahern Family Charitable Foundation A Nonprofit Organization Seeking to Assist Veterans and Current Members of the Military

Relive the music and camaraderie of the Rat Pack, courtesy of the Regent Theatre’s Legends Series as two talented entertainers bring Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin to life on stage. Robbie Howard and Andy DiMino pay tribute to the Chairman of the Board and Dino with a
nostalgic evening of comedy and classic songs—a magical recreation of the music, antics, and camaraderie of two of the greatest entertainers of all time. Show times are Friday, June 17 at 8pm (Ahern Family Foundation Benefit); Saturday, June 18 at 8pm; and a special Father’s Day matinee, Sunday, June 19 at 2pm.

Robbie Howard is one of the finest tribute entertainers in the country. With over 10,000 performances under his belt, Robbie began his career in Los Angeles, California starring in stage productions of Fiddler on the Roof, South Pacific, Guys and Dolls and Bye Bye Birdie. Robbie has been a cast member of The Rat Pack is Back in Las Vegas. He has an arsenal of over 60 impressions including Tom Jones, Johnny Carson, Toby Keith, Shaggy , Randy Travis, Bobby Vinton and Ray Charles. His TV credits and commercials include General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, Growing Pains, Perfect Strangers, Carl’s Jr., Bank of America, Taco Bell, Knott’s Berry Farm and Budweiser.

Although Dean Martin Impersonator Andy DiMino’s background may be more in music and singing than celebrity impersonations, DiMino is a natural when it comes to bringing ol’ Dino back to life. With career experience as a musician, songwriter, recording artist, actor and stage
performer, Andy has focused his attention on the music and comedy style of Dean Martin. Recently returning from a triumphant six week showroom engagement at the Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City, the reviews have echoed the same positive response he received in San Francisco, Detroit, Boston and Berlin, Germany… “Andy DiMino as a brilliantly conceived, uncanny total embodiment of Martin”... With his love for music and comedy of the Rat Pack generation, his close physical resemblance to Dean Martin and an Italian background (DiMino’s father and all four grandparents were from Sicily), it looks like Andy DiMino has truly found his calling.

“Memories Are Made of This” will be presented Friday and Saturday, June 17 & 18 at 8pm, and Sunday, June 19 at 2pm at the historic Regent Theatre, “Arlington’s Show Place of Entertainment.” Reserved seats are $22.50-$32.50. Located at 7 Medford St. in Arlington Center (off of Mass Ave)—minutes from Cambridge and Boston—the Regent is MBTA and handicap accessible with free parking across the street.
