Updated: Mar 27

A partnership of local organizations spearheaded by Icon City Ent. is calling for more representation of the historic diversity found in Palm Springs beginning with a star for Rat Pack crew member Sammy Davis Jr. !

A part of the famous Rat Pack crew with Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. has a history in Palm Springs that is not currently signified. Stars and streets adorned with the names of iconic entertainers from the 50's and 60's are common place in Palm Springs, however, Sammy Davis Jr. has not been bestowed this well deserved honor.

Like many other celebrated legacies of the Coachella Valley, Sammy Davis Jr. in his heyday owned a residence in Palm Springs. Check out the video tour of Sammy's desert digs. The video also features a stop by the previous CV residence of another iconic musical figure of color engrained in the history of the area, Nat King Cole.
