Well, ain't that a kick in the head. Dean Martin tribute artist Chris Gardner will bring the swing and swagger of the Rat Pack to the Zal Gaz Grotto Club on Monday.

Formerly from Detroit, Gardner now lives in San Francisco and tours the country as the booze-swilling singer and comedian. He'll perform classics such as "That's Amore," "Ain't That A Kick In The Head," "Volare," "You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You," and many more. He will be backed by the Paul Keller Orchestra.

In the past, Gardner has starred as Dean Martin in the award-winning Las Vegas Rat Pack tribute shows, "The Rat Pack is Back" and "Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show."
