Those were the words of Dean Martin in 1981 when our featured performer and Dean Martin impersonator, FELIX J. DENEAU, JR., joined Dean on stage at Las Vegas' MGM Grand.
Felix continues his endearing appreciation for Dean's legendary talent through his production and tribute show, BACK TO THE DEAN MARTIN SHOW - A TRIBUTE TO DINO!
This is a spectacular and heart warming tribute to America's "Cool Crooner", Mr. Dean Martin. The Show, which re-creates Dean's vivaciousness, humor and music, can be designed as a Solo Act, or as a Variety Show with other Tribute Artists portraying Marilyn Monroe, Rat Pack, Jerry Lewis, Elvis, Lucy & Desi Arnaz, Cher, The Blues Brothers, Betty Boop, Tom Jones, just to name a few.
In addition to his own Tribute Show productions, FELIX J. DENEAU, JR. is currently a Universal Studios Orlando Top Talent; a Headliner in Orlando-based tribute show, "THE RAT PACK AND FRIENDS"; and a veteran talent of Walt Disney World. He has been with Universal since its opening. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication / Theatre Arts from the University of Wisconsin. Endorsed by The Dean Martin Estate, Felix' talents keenly mirror those of the celebrity legend when he made his professional home at Las Vegas' legendary Sands Hotel with The Rat Pack, as well as when Martin and Lewis teamed up in comedy and music at Atlantic City's 500 Club.
Felix' diverse Impersonator talents also include Humphrey Bogart (endorsed by Humphrey Bogart Estate with "Ingrid Bergmann", "Casablanca"), Desi Arnaz (as "Ricky Ricardo" with "Lucy", "I Love Lucy"), Charlie Chaplin, Popeye, Doc Brown, Jerry Lewis ("Nutty Professor"), Judge Smails (with "Caddyshack" personalities), Sonny Bono (with "Cher"), Stan Laurel (with "Oliver Hardy"), Dick Clark ("American Bandstand"), and the list goes on.
All Shows have entertained many Public Audiences (Theaters, Dinner Shows, Night Clubs, Casinos, Cruise Ships, Festivals); Private Parties (Weddings, Reunions, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Community Entertainment, Fundraisers, Casino Nights); and Corporate Clients (Conventions, Holiday Parties, Award Dinners, and Themed Celebrations).
Corporate Clients include Universal Studios, Walt Disney World, Hard Rock Hotels, JW Marriott Hotel, Gaylord Palms, Championsgate, Ritz Carlton Hotels, Hilton Hotels, Fontainebleau Hotel, Regions Bank, IBM, McDonald's, Dupont, Tampa Bay Rays, Trustco Bank, Kings Orlando, Creative Memories, Timberlin Golf Club, Celebration Management, and more.
Custom designed Shows, of any size, can feature musical accompaniment by pre-recorded tracks or multi-piece swing bands to fit any Client's needs and budget. Our LAS VEGAS backdrop, displayed within this Profile's Photo Gallery, adds an extra WOW factor!

"Oh my, WHERE do I begin? We had a 3-day destination wedding celebration and BY FAR, this was my FAVORITE part of the wedding. Felix is absolutely amazing! Please, do yourself a favor and DO NOT waste your time even considering anyone else. His show, his personality, his attention to detail, and his amazing manager, Betsy, are BEYOND 5 STARS! I have NEVER seen my family have so much fun. He catered to our every request and made EVERY SINGLE person at my wedding SMILE WITH JOY! We feel as if Felix is now a part of our family! PLEASE, if you are looking for this type of entertainment, Felix is the ONLY way to go. We LOVE you FELIX!!!!!! THANK YOU!!! XOXOXO"

"Thanks for the super fun evening of entertainment! It was a great surprise for our parent's 50th wedding anniversary while we vacationed in Disney. Betsy & Felix were easy to work with, very responsive, and of course put on a fun show. The best was when he interacted with the audience / our family to make it more fun & personal. Book them!
