III Century Singers to relive oldies

Will perform twice in three-day period


The III Century Singers will perform tribute concerts with tunes from “The Rat Pack” Sunday, May 15 at 3 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Goldsboro and Tuesday, May 17, at 7 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Mount Olive.

Admission is free.

Frank Sinatra. Dean Martin. Sammy Davis Jr. Peter Lawford. Joey Bishop. Also better known as “The Rat Pack,” the close-knit group of supremely talented friends were regular headliners in Las Vegas, often making surprise appearances in each other’s shows.

Three were responsible for iconic songs “Come Fly With Me,” “Mr. Bojangles,” “The Candy Man” and “My Way.”

Two years ago, the III Century Singers began rehearsing for a tribute concert of music made famous by Sammy Davis Jr. It was scheduled on the 30th anniversary of his death, but the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the event.

This spring, the III Century Singers have expanded to include other musical members of The Rat Pack. Each concert will feature the above-mentioned songs plus other favorites including “Bye, Bye Blackbird,” “New York, New York,” “That’s Amore” and “Mack the Knife.”
