“Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Louis Prima all live on in the hellzappopin’ show of this Land O’ Lakes lounge lizard. Vic Volare is Minnesota’s cocktail pop king, bringing a big dose of the Vegas desert to the frozen tundra. A snappy dresser with a prize baritone and a Hollywood heartthrob’s casual confidence, Volare makes every club set a Rat Pack-style party. His tongue’s firmly in cheek, and his crowd’s generally dressed to kill in a mixture of high fashion and thrift shop threads. Volare’s backing Lounge Orchestra sounds especially good after a few dry martinis. ” Tom Surowicz – Minneapolis Star Tribune
