"THAT'S PRETTY DAMN GOOD, KID!"
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.
