The Dean Martin Golddiggers
OFFICIAL WEBSITE - MARIA LAUREN
In 2009 Dean Martin received a Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement!
“It was exciting to join my friends of The Dean Martin Golddiggers on the red carpet at the Grammy Award Ceremony. We were there, to support Dean Martin’s legacy as his family accepted his Lifetime Achievement Award. This unforgettable evening brought back wonderful memories of not only performing with Dean Martin but touring with him and Frank Sinatra together. Wow! It was like a dream come true to be a part of this glamorous time in entertainment.
Dean Martin framed our world with golden moments and golden memories.”
In 1977, The Golddiggers toured with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin together!
