Relive Rat Pack days
Duo performs Friday in Helen
Gabe Russo, left, and Jim Noe, will sing Big Band era songs during three concerts in September at Helen Theater.

Russo & Noe, singing the music of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, will perform a concert at 8 p.m. Sept. 6, 12 and 27, at Helen Theater, 115 Escowee Drive in Helen.

Gabe Russo and Jim Noe are professional entertainers, not an impersonation act. Although comparisons are often made to the Rat Pack days of Las Vegas, they are based out of Atlanta and perform all across the Southeast.

Performing in tuxedos with the trademark Manhattan glass in hand, they really do take an audience back to those days. They are easy and relaxed on stage, slightly ribald with their humor and possess excellent voices remarkably suited to the swinging, big band era.

They first performed opposite each other in a 1999 production of "Guys and Dolls." Six years and many varied performances later, they formed the musical act Russo & Noe.
