Pittsburgh's own Patti Faloon has enjoyed a career in show business that spans over sixty years. Starting off as the tap dancer Patti Eberle and still working now as Rainbow the Clown, Patti has a story to tell that also serves as a fascinating history of show business and how it has evolved over the decades.

In the Big Band era of the 1940s, Patti found steady work in nightclubs and hotels throughout the Tri-State area. But as big bands gave way to DJs, she had the foresight and spunk to transform herself into a singing comedienne, and one half of the successful team Fallon and Dunn. Her marriage to the great guitarist Marty Faloon spawned three immensely talented children, two of whom became a part of the act Faloon Family and Friend.

Patti's story is full of delightful, often amusing anecdotes that give us a glimpse into the life of a genuine trooper who had an impossibly demanding work ethic, and many ups and downs. It is the story of a woman who, despite tragic loss, knew that the show had to go on and it did.
