8:00p.m. – Deana Martin Live in Concert, Perelman Theater, Kimmel Center
10:00p.m. – The Philly POPS Presents the 500 Club at The Prime Rib


During the Philly POPS season opening Sinatra Weekend concert series, the legendary Dean Martin’s daughter, Deana, will perform in the Kimmel Center’s Perelman Theatre on Saturday, October 10. 

Backed by her band, Deana will perform Rat Pack classics and wax nostalgic with anecdotes and videos. Students in the University of the Arts’ OcTone choir will perform back-up when Deana sings “That’s Amore” and “Memories are Made of This”.  

Following the concert, the Prime Rib on Locust Street will be transformed into Atlantic City’s storied 500 Club where Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and friends performed and partied in the 1940s-1960s. Limited to one hundred guests, the 500 Club redux will include another performance from Deana Martin in an intimate supper club setting.
