The Palm Springs “Toast To The Stars” Mission Statement

Gangsters, presidents, Broadway stars,  jazz babies, rock and rollers, and about every actor and wannabee came to both “get away” and to “be seen.” They came to be with one another, relax, swim, sun, dine and have cocktails in style. This, the Golden Era of Hollywood, was the Golden Era of Palm Springs, one and the same.

With dishy tours and exciting events, we have dedicated more than twenty years to keeping the torch of the Golden Era lit, the lore going. We are professionally star struck. This is our way of keeping the glamour of the golden era of Old Hollywood and Old Palm Springs alive.  Join us. Let us show you around, toast the stars. It is our passion. It is our mission.

Her perfect counterpoint is crooner Gilmore Rizzo, who tours nationally with his own show, “That’s Amore,” and appeared for 8 years on the Emmy-winning TV series, “Murphy Brown.” Accompanist Bryan Miller, a staple of the Hollywood piano bar scene, completes the trio with his virtuosity, wit and charm.

Sinatra’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame drummer, Hal Blaine, will regale with stories of Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Blaine, the most recorded drummer in history, was the leader of the Wrecking Crew, the group of elite L.A. session players that dominated the studio scene in the Sixties and Seventies, and the percussionist behind Phil Spector's "Wall Of Sound," Blaine played for Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Jan and Dean, Elvis Presley, The Supremes,

The Ronettes, Simon & Garfunkel, the Carpenters, the Beach Boys, the Grass Roots.

 

The Setting 

The historic Palm Springs Tennis Club Resort was the elegant vision of “Auntie Pearl” McCallum McNamus. After a round-the-world trip during the 1930’s, “La Grande Dame” of Palm Springs, was intent on creating “the most beautiful club in the world” and the most photographed pool in America in her hometown. Along with attracting tennis greats, The Palm Springs Tennis Club beguiled the glamorous Hollywood set, including Sinatra, who was a member. In 1951, it hosted an addition to the Golden Globes, the ”Henrietta Awards,” naming Jane Wyman and Gregory Peck “Film Favorite of the World.” Through the decades, this precious property has only been improved upon by famous architects and impassioned owners. The charm of the original Tennis Club like fine wine, only improves with time.

 

Step back into the era of cool and spend the night living the good life. Come join us on this special night to keep the Rat Pack party going, and to commemorate our timeless favorite, forever “The Chairman of the Board.”
