Dean Martin’s 100th Birthday Tribute

Smiles of heartfelt memories sweep over us as we celebrate Dean Martin’s 100th birthday on June 7th. Dean’s charismatic talent personified a debonair and cheeky demeanor with an underlying charm and allure that transcends time.

We were blessed to be a part of The Dean Martin Golddiggers for almost two decades. We witnessed Dean’s mastery of entertainment and light-hearted fun on the Las Vegas stage and on television.


Dean’s special warmth touches us even now as we listen to his unique inflections while he sings a song, tells a joke or casually gives a fun-loving look.

Our Las Vegas performances opening for Dean, spanned from the 1970’s to the early 1990’s. We became like a family, sharing special occasions like birthdays and Christmas together, and even some heartbreaking times.

We are forever grateful for being a part of this dynamic time in show business but especially for sharing in Dean’s humanity.

“What do you get the guy who has everything? He appeared to treasure those moments and, little by little, during our Vegas stays, he warmly unveiled his vulnerability and softer side to us.”

And he did, he gave it his all! Thank you Dean and happy 100th birthday. We love you!
