Review by Amy H.

I want to express how much everyone in attendance raved about the show. Bob and Dave did an outstanding job as our Rat Pack duo. Both did an excellent job of bringing the generations together for a fantastic night of dancing and fun! I would highly recommend them. The performance was spot on!

Dean-O-Holics

Look for our new demo video, full length video as well as CD Coming in July 2011

Bob Caudle has been performing for over 20 years. Starting out doing Dino as a gag, he found himself winning sound alike contests where ever he went. Starting out with his good friend and piano player of almost all of those 20 years, John Carlson, Doing Dean...crooning and leaning along side his famous Baby Grand Piano. Eventually adding Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis jr. & the rest of the musicians, has put the show over the top. This show is not like any you have seen. The audience is actually brought into the show with lyric changes and gags to include the guests of honor. You'll have fun right along with them as they bring you back to a time before rap and political correctness. Singing the songs of the Rat Pack with a little of the Dino humour in between. this group is gauranteed to add that perfect flair to your next big event. "I feel sorry for you folks that don't drink, cuz when you wake up in the morning thats the best you gonna feel all day!" Cheers!

Reference
Dear Bob,
I personally wanted to drop you a line as our membership thoroughly enjoyed the performance of your “Dean-O-Holics” show. Our Murieta Room was packed and by the time the evening was over (almost 3 ½ hours later) no one had left. Which has been a major problem for our events in the past.

While I wish we could keep your group a secret from other Country Clubs, that’s not fair so I would strongly recommend your show to other venues such as ours the Rancho Murieta County Club. For that matter any venue should bring your show in.

The music, the atmosphere, the attire, and most important the talent was quite impressive.
We look forward to another appearance soon!

Sincerely,
Vince C. Lepera

Testimonials

These guys just played at my wedding last week in the city and they were unbelievable. The piano player in our church became unavailable at the last minute so I called Bob. He said don't worry its taken care of. No question of price, nothing. just simply put us at ease and their piano player did a fabulous job. Pure Class!!! I will recommend these guys to anyone every chance I get. Most importantly my wife was totally stoked with their performance from everything like the first dance to getting the party going once the dancing started. They even kept things organized with the coordinator.
Thank you so much guys

We first saw these guys at Cal Neva's Frank Sinatra Showroom. They were so wonderful we hired them for my boss' annual fundraiser where my daughter saw them and she has booked them for her wedding in October. We can't wait to see them again.

– Steve Johns

These guys were incredible. Everytime they play our showroom (Frank Sinatra Showroom...The very showroom Frank built for himself to perform at in his own casino)They Sell it out. In the 3 years that we have owned The Cal Neva Casino the Dean-O-Holics are the only ones to sell out Mr. Sinatra's room.

– Cal Neva Resort & Casino

We will be hiring them again next year...A crowd favorite. This is their 3rd year at our fair and we will have them back as long as they are willing!
