Lady Luck steps into Las Vegas when the Rat Pack ruled the strip but also sizzles in today’s Las Vegas!
Lady Luck has been charmed by Frank Sinatra in the song, ‘Luck be a Lady,’ she has a downtown Vegas casino named after her and she is the subject of a new music video sung by recording artist, Marianna Riccio and directed/edited by award-winning videographer, Harry J Jarvis.
Because of our connection to the artist, 😉 my sister and I (Alberici Sisters) also make a few appearances in the Lady Luck music video… our book is featured too!
Our historical entertainment book was prompted by a newspaper reporter who interviewed us on the Red Carpet at The Grammy Award Ceremony. We were there to honor Dean Martin receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award because of our many years performing with Dean as The Golddiggers.
“As we celebrated that evening, it all came flooding back—the stars, the memories….
Touring with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin on the same bill, hanging out in the dressing rooms and at home with Sammy Davis Jr.; taping the Dean Martin TV show; opening the MGM Grand in Las Vegas with Dean and then appearing at Bally’s for so many years until Dean’s final performances. What an experience. What fun!
Spending all of that time in Las Vegas with Dean opened our eyes to who the legendary entertainer really was on a personal level; the man behind the laughter. And the sorrow.
As my sister and I searched for our friends through the crowd we were stopped by another news reporter, ‘How did you like performing with Dean Martin?’ He became enthralled with our stories of singing, dancing and palling around with Dean Martin and the Rat Pack.”

My sister Linda and I were more than pleased to sing a little snippet of ‘Luck be a Lady’ in the Lady Luck music video as our hearts commemorated 100 years of Frank Sinatra! Now, a whole new generation can take notice.
