Biography

1) The Rat Pack is the nickname given to a group of popular entertainers most active between the mid-1950s and mid-1960s. Its most famous line-up featured Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop, who appeared together in films and on stage in the early 1960s. Despite its reputation as a masculine group, the Rat Pack did have female participants, such as movie icons Shirley Maclaine, Lauren Bacall, and Judy Garland.

As of 2007, Joey Bishop is the only male member of the Rat Pack who is still alive.

2) In 1984, Rat Pack singer/founder Matt Ratt was covering the vocal duties for Rich Kids on LSD, while singer Jason Sears was away on “medical leave”. During this time Rich Kids on LSD was signed on to record for the now infamous”NARDCORE” album on Mystic Records. Just prior to recording, Jason returned from his leave of absense. So left with the dilema of an album to record, and suddenly no band, Matt was told to throw something together quickly and record for the album anyway. So after a few rehearsals with Chris Rest and Alpo D.(borrowed from Rich Kids on LSD) Dave Casillas from Stalag 13 and Mike Torres from Narthex Structure, Rat Pack was born! Although originaly only meant to be a recording project for the NARDCORE album, Rat Pack ended up doing three records for Mystic, 1985’s self titled 7”, 1987’s “Ice Cream Acid and Cigarettes” 7” and 1990’s self titled full length Lp. Through the years Rat Pack has gone through long periods of hibernation, with many line up changes.
