THE youngest son of Dean Martin is to make one if his first ever UK appearances at the Circus Tavern.

Ricci Martin, now 61, will be bringing a show which pays tribute to the hits made famous by his Dad, Dean - who was a member of the Rat Pack during the late 1950s and early 60s.

Since 2003, Ricci has entertained thousands of fans and now he is bringing and exciting new show called Dino to the UK.

He is performing at just five UK venues in May and on Sunday, May 18, one of those venues will be the Circus Tavern.

Ricci will be taking an audience down memory lane singing his father’s hit songs such as “Memories Are Made of This”, “Volare”, “That's Amore”, “Houston” and "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime”, all with the accompaniment of a live band.

Dean Martin, who died in 1995 aged 78, was famed for his cool persona. Naturally encapsulating that, Ricci performs in the humorous laid back style.

During certain musical segments there will be some never-before-seen photos projected on a screen of Dean’s family life, his Vegas performances and his hit television series, the “Dean Martin Show”, which hosted the biggest stars of the day.

Ricci also tells the story of the breakdown of Dean and Ricci’s mother Jeanne Biegger’s break up in 1973, along with a touching account of the loss of his brother Dean-Paul, who died in a plane crash in 1987.

There will also be a question and answer session with members of the audience.

Ricci will perform a matinee show, from 2.30pm and an evening show from 7.30pm on May 18. Tickets start from £13.50 and can be purchased by visiting: or calling 0844 5006615.
