DeKalb County Happenings for Everyone in Your Family!

For the Music Lover

Don’t miss “One Swinging Night” at the Egyptian Theatre on Saturday, February 21 at 8pm. This show has been praised by critics as being as close as any person could come to experiencing the original Rat Pack trio of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr.

This fantastic show transports audiences to a time when life was simpler. It’s a brilliant reenactment of the “Summit,” a period at which all three superstars were at the prime of their wonderful careers.
