How Cool Is It To Learn About Vegas History From A Stage Show?

How Cool Is It To Learn About Vegas History From A Stage Show? | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

History Classes Are Boring

 

Let's be honest. History class was not a school favorite. Sure, there were some that loved it but if you are like me, you sat there wondering if there was a more exciting way for the information to be presented. For those who grew up living in Las Vegas they got to see the city change with the times. For those who lived out of state, they may have had a little bit of local history, but a lot of it is American history. What people may not realize is that in addition to the importance of the major events in American history there have been certain towns that defined the regions they are located in. For the Southwestern United States one of those towns was Las Vegas.

 

From Sand and Rocks to Gambling and Hotels

 

I don't want to sit here and go on and on about how the town started as a settlement for travelers and eventually turned into a fairly decent watering hole for those going further west to mine for gold. Then of course there was the expansion and the eventual construction of the first hotel and casino. The legalization of gambling led to vacationers eventually making it a hot spot. Eventually there was a growth in the towns size thanks to a hefty contribution from some.... "businessmen" in the area. But enough about all that. You probably know Vegas as the mega-resort, entertainment, magic and overall party capital of the world. What gets most people is just how Vegas went from this quiet desert town, to a city that never sleeps. Rather than sit through a boring presentation or some type of class that you have to take a test on, there is one show, among all of the ones that dot the famous Las Vegas Strip, that will give you a look into that history but do it in a way that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Welcome to, VEGAS! the Show.

 

Learn About Vegas In Spectacular Fashion

 

Learn about the rich history of Sin City, but instead of reading words on a page, you are watching the history unfold before your eyes, live on stage. Imagine if every class you took in college had showgirls dancing around the room, or your professors were dressed in full suits. It would make things a bit more interesting wouldn't it? VEGAS! the Show showcases the evolution of Las Vegas and it not only teaches you where things were and where they are going, but it does so in such a way you can not help but be captivated. We all know by now that Vegas has made its reputation on showcasing some of the most fascinating and sinful entertainment in the world. In VEGAS! the Show, you get to actually re-live the moment that made the town what it is today. It truly is a one-of-a-kind spectacular experience complete with everything that makes Vegas... Vegas!

 

Learn about Vegas the only way it should be taught, with flare, style glitz and glamour. VEGAS! the Show is perfect for everyone. Unlike the feeling you had after you had to write that 20 page history paper on a Saturday, you will not be disappointed. Get your tickets for VEGAS! the Show and see what it's all about.

Now You Can Check Out Michael Jackson Live In Tribute Royalty! » 2for1shows.com | 2for1shows.com

Now You Can Check Out Michael Jackson Live In Tribute Royalty! » 2for1shows.com | 2for1shows.com | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

The worlds number 1 recording artist, most awarded single male artists of all time, record holder for most top ten hits on a single album, if you are still wondering who we are talking about at this point then what rock have you been living under? Michael Jackson is undeniably one of the greatest artists to ever emerge into modern society. Not only did the man rise from some of the most brutal conditions imaginable, he weathered some of the most tumultuous times any pop-star had ever seen! Indeed while Michael’s life was without a doubt the definition of hard, he never once deniedthat his childhood abuse helped get him to where he was, attributing his entire success to his father’s vigilance and strict management. While humility was one of Michaels greatest personality traits, it would be his charitable nature and absolute stage presence that would land him in the annals of history as one of the greatest artists ever born.

 

Early in his career, Michael experienced a pretty hefty amount of success at a young age. As part of the Jackson 5, they were responsible for some of the greatest hits of the 70’s including “ABC” and “Dancing Machine!” But these successes would be responsible for an explosion of fame that would hit every member of the Jackson 5, but none more so than M.J. himself! As the 80’s dawned onto the unsuspecting world, there was one man who stood tall and made himself unforgettable. In 1979 Jackson had already released the well received album “Off the wall” but the attention gained from that album would be nothing compared to musical powerhouse that was about to change the world. That album was none other than Thriller, and it did more for Michael Jackson than anything else in his entire career.

 

Through the next few years Michael Jacksons reign of Pop supremacy would only grow larger, in the mid 80’s Jackson took a business note from the famous Beatle Paul McCartney. While just years earlier McCartney had turned down the opportunity to buy the Beatles song catalogue, Jackson saw it is as a huge investment opportunity and jumped on the chance. Soon after his acquisition of Northern Songs catalogue, Michael would hammer out a deal that saw him earn the largest percentage of royalties any recording artists had ever seen. While making savvy business moves was common for M.J., what was more common was his affinity for charity. By the 90’s Michael Jackson would have donated tens of millions of dollars to various charity organizations, including a California hospital which would rename the burn ward after him.

 

As the 90’s chugged on Michael Jacksons legacy was strewn with unconfirmed allegations and rumors abound of his obsession with cosmetic surgery and his appearance. While all the rumors were nothing more than that, rumors, M.J. still took the brunt of public opinion for a short time, but never truly lost his immortal status among society. As his finances and career began to take a dark turn towards the 2000’s, Michael Jackson managed to release one more album of original content, one more album that would also prove to be his last. As his reputation continued to go up and down, one thing never changed, and that was that M.J. was an artist first. But while preparing to stun the world with a legendary comeback tour, tragedy had struck. Michael Jackson was then forever immortalized in the hearts and minds of the world, and it seemed all those small problems and misconceptions stemming from his past completely disappeared.

 

The legend had moved on, but not without leaving legions of heartbroken fans and friends in his wake. Now he lives on through the very songs that made him a hero, while he will always be remembered for almost unreal stage presence and dance moves, nobody will forget the struggle that helped create one of the greatest singers and artists the world has ever known. 

 

Now at V Theater you can re-live the stage presence that changed the world, in Tribute Royalty you will enjoy a night with three of the most groundbreaking artists of the 20th century, including Lady Gaga, Elvis Presley and of course Michael Jackson! In this one of a kind tribute you will experience a concert that can only be imagined as some of Vegas’ best tribute artists take the stage to show you how it was ( and still is) done! Don’t miss out, pick up your tickets to Tribute Royalty today!

Country Superstars has recently made one of the biggest moves in the show’s history, coming from the Golden Nugget to the famous V Theater in Planet Hollywood. The move helped to propel the show to new heights as all the fantastic tribute stars prove they are as talented as their imagined counterparts!

Now playing six nights a week at the V Theater, Adam also gets a chance to showcase some of his personal music to audiences, claiming the move was a huge career boost. Tucker’s McGraw tribute includes hits such as “I Love It, I Like It,” “Don’t Take the Girl,” “Live Like You Were Dying,” “Felt Good on My Lips” and “Real Good Man.”

 

Adam portrays Mcgraw with the fervor of a fan though, claiming he’s been a huge fan since Mcgraw’s early days and the release of his first hit single in 1992. “I’m a huge, huge fan,” Tucker asserts. “It has nothing to do about me tryin’ to be someone else. I honestly love singing Tim McGraw music every night, and I honestly love hearing every Tim McGraw song on the radio. I’ll be that way until the day I die.”

 

Tucker claims his Mcgraw voice came naturally, and over the past 2 years he has attended Mcgraw shows for “business” purposes to help his act out. Tucker launched his singing career in 2003, he says after he attended a country tribute show he deemed the Mcgraw tribute to be lacking. Noting how angry he was, he decided he was going to try and do it better! After a few years of making the rounds and recording original tracks, Adam would soon hit the next level. In 2005 he would end up as an opening act in Nashville landing auditions, recording demos, and after a couple years of successes Adam finally put together his dream Mcgraw act.

2 for 1 shows Blog - Old Vegas and How The Rancho Started It All!

2 for 1 shows Blog - Old Vegas and How The Rancho Started It All! | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

Las Vegas has a long reaching and rich history of entertainment and artists the likes of which the world has never been able to forget! In the early 30’s the greatest era in Vegas history was about to unfold as some of the greatest casino moguls of our age were plotting and planning to create the greatest oasis the world had ever seen. Before the casinos came, Las Vegas was little more than a rest stop on the long stretch of road to California. With only a small airfield, and almost nothing to do for tourists the desert was the only sight to behold when driving through the dusty old town. The denizens of the early Vegas were mostly ranchers trying to work as much as they could from the hard dry Vegas dirt.

 

As California began to grow more and more were travelling along that lonely stretch of road through the desert. Legend has it that a famous heir of a hotel empire broke down along this stretch of road while heading to San Diego, while sending his friend for help he stayed with the car, and while waiting he counted how many cars were driving past. His estimate was at about 300 cars an hour, as a natural entrepreneur and go getter he realized the small town of Vegas was an untapped Gold Mine. His wouldn’t be the first resort style casino on the long stretch of highway 91, the “Pair-o-Dice Club” had already capitalized on the highway in 1931, but being a good distance away from the town meant James Cashman could still pull in visitors while they stopped to rest in Vegas.

The “El Rancho Resort” would open in 1941, and would be the very first resort along what is now considered “The Strip”. Using the western theme Las Vegas loved so much the casino was an instant hit with tourists making long detours just to land in town for a night.

 

Introducing the wild time of table games and boozing up while mingling in a party style setting turned out to be the talk of the entire Country. Like one giant club, the success of the resort initiated a wave of eager entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on the next big destination in Vegas. In 1944 The “El Rancho” was leased out for six months, to the man who would end up building the historical “Flamingo Hotel” in 1945. Soon after a Los Angeles business man bought the “El Rancho” and a couple years later would put 750,000$ into the improvement of the El Rancho allowing it to become the biggest Casino and hotel in Nevada.

 

From here on out Las Vegas would experience a continuous boom with hotels popping up every year. A few key Marketing masters would end up putting a flavor on the city that couldn’t be found anywhere else in the world. Using Neon Signs and ingenious methods of advertising some of the greatest musicians known today, Las Vegas achieved a near immortal status in the hearts and minds of millions as The Strip became the premier travel destination in the United States. In the end it would be the El Rancho and the Flamingo that set in motion a boom that hasn’t stopped to this very day, contributing to a culture and community still as unique as the city itself.

2 for 1 shows Blog- Cult Classic Hits The Strip With Evil Dead The Musical 4D! | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

A group of five friends decided to take a weekend retreat to a cabin in the woods. Good friends, good times, what could go wrong? Surely there would not be an evil force that was unleashed that set loose a rabid group of zombies leaving the friends to fend for themselves and one by one they start turning into zombies themselves? Well actually… that’s exactly what happened.

 

Evil Dead: The Musical 4D is based on the cult classic Evil Dead movie series. In the original film Ash Williams is forced to battle the un-dead after he and his friends discover a book inside the cabin they have rented. This book of the dead unleashes an evil force that slowly turns all the friends into zombies. It is up to Ash to try and save himself and his friends before it’s too late. In the second film we see the story of Ash and his girlfriend who once again are confronted with more evil demons which leads to Ash being partially possessed by the evil force. After having to cut off his own hand he must continue to vanquish the evil forces that surround him. The Third and final film in the series, Army of Darkness find Ash transported back in time to once more take on the evil forces that have plagued him throughout the trilogy.

 

The films themselves received mixed reviews from critics but were a hit with fans making the series an instant cult classic. The character of Ash Williams has been declared one of the best horror heroes of all time. The films have been adapted into an off-Broadway play which has recently made its way to Las Vegas!

 

Evil Dead: The Musical 4D takes elements from all three films and blends them together into one musical spectacular complete with the only ‘splatter zone’ of it’s kind in any production on the Strip. If you are a fan of the movies then you will be able to quote along with the cast as they take you on a musical journey through the land of the un-dead. If you are not very familiar with the franchise, this is the perfect chance to introduce yourself to a true cult classic. If you choose to sit in the splatter zone, be warned  you will be showered with the blood of evil zombies; but don’t worry you won’t turn into one.

In the 1980’s you could find Gerry at clubs across the country. Headlining with his famous self-made title “The Mentalist”, he created a new category all his own. Becoming a huge hit thanks to some master observational skills (remember dad was a NYPD detective) Gerry continued the mindstravaganza across the country performing for corporate events and gatherings wowing audiences with his comedic approach to his readings. As he continued to appear on radio and talk shows across the country, more and more became interested in the enigma that was McCambridge! In 1999 Gerry was awarded by the International magicians Society, the first ever Merlin award for mentalism to honor his major contributions to entertainment within his field. In 2004, Gerry struck gold with his own hit one hour T.V. spot, “The Mentalist” drawing millions of viewers the world over. Soon after Gerry put together his one man show (again with his favorite title) Off-Broadway in New York and was well met by all the critics.


Taking this success for all it was worth Gerry took his new show across the country. Eventually becoming a huge sensation from New York to Las Vegas, the latter of which his success was so potent he would end up making Sin City his residency! Performing consecutive shows to roaring crowds Gerry had found a new desire in the public for his masterful antics of mentalism! In 2008 the Mentalist performed his 500th show after 3 years, to which he was given a special ceremony by his host venue, The Major Las Vegas Resort “Hooters”. He was awarded an extra year onto his contract, and given a public tribute by the COO of the resort along with a rare one of a kind Rolex. Later that year Gerry was contacted to make his idea of Mentalism in fighting crime a reality with the weekly running, self titled television show. Now in 2012 the city of Vegas has been very good to Gerry, running his show at the V2 Theater located right above the famous V Theater. His show has been claimed across the board as a definite “Must See” and one of the best shows, hands down in town. With all these reasons, what else is holding you back from seeing the world renowned and award winning Master of mentalism? Well check out the show and maybe Gerry can tell you, so pick up your tickets through 2for1-shows and experience “The Mentalist” today!

Tina Turner Receives Heartfelt Tribute at las Vegas' Only Motown Revue

Tina Turner Receives Heartfelt Tribute at las Vegas' Only Motown Revue | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

Hitzville: The Show!, is Las Vegas’ best and only Motown Revue. Performed by the very fans and musicians who lived and loved in the golden days of R&B, the show features many Diva’s from the 60’s and onwards who’s voices defined an era, But there’s one who stood out far ahead of her time. That iconic figure is no other than Tina Turner, or “Anna Mae Bullock” if you want to skip stage names. Starring in a range of films, even the cult 80’s classic ‘Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome”, Tina Turner still remains one of the greatest singers who ever lived. Given the title by more than just magazines, even legends of the music industry have given credit where credit is due. Having numerous awards, she was as celebrated as any major female R&B singer of her time, Tina Turner has also been dubbed the Queen of Rock and Roll. But with her up’s and down’s, all centered in the public eye, it’s the way she rose above that will forever be remembered in the hearts of millions. As her classics live on, she will forever remain a timeless icon.


From her wild style and her attitude that pre-dates many of rock and roll’s greatest figures, Tina Turner was sometimes as controversial as she was beautiful. Born in Tennessee in the late 30’s, Anna rose from weighty circumstances to become the star she would be always be remembered as. After overcoming many family hardships, the late 50’s proved to be a time Anna Mae would blossom into the classic Tina Turner that would “wow” the world, performing shows for the next ten years with icon and fellow celebrity Ike Turner. Tina and Ike brought a show to America that was being compared to the spectacle of a James Brown performance, as the famed duo reached beyond legendary heights the downside soon reared its ugly head. As pressures on the couple mounted, the 70’s ended up in their divorce and a rebirth for Tina Turners’ career. Once again proving she could rise above her circumstances, she proved to the world she was more than just a faded star as her career bloomed into a rebirth in the 80’s, where she would star in major films and release more albums that would end up as an essential part of her “classics” catalog.


As time has moved forward history hasn’t forgotten Anna Mae, as to this day in 2012, Tina Turner is recording yet another album, and through the preceding years has performed on stage with big names such as Beyoncé Knowles. Holding the record for “Most tickets sold on tour by a single musician”, Tina’s legacy will forever stand tall in the history books. Even through all the up’s and down’s coupled with loss and redemption, Tina Turner has a future possibly even brighter than her past. So come and see a true fan of Turners legacy, Jin-Jin Reeves, as she puts her heart and soul into a performance that will reintroduce long time fans and new young admirers alike to the classic Tina Turner that helped define the R&B sound of the 60’s and 70’s in Saxe Theaters own “Hitzville: The Show!”.

Elvis Sure Has His Share of Impersonators

Elvis Sure Has His Share of Impersonators | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

We all know that Elvis was The King, but these Elvis Presley impersonators have taken his legacy and continued it for an entirely new generation. What makes these tributes so special, is that they are presented by some of the most unlikely people. While there are surely thousands of impersonators out there, theseare some of the most unique.

Elvis Presley Impersonators Come From All Over The World

 

Back in 2007 'The Worlds Greatest Elvis' Competition hit the stage and hundreds of Elvis Presley impersonators auditioned to be given the title as Worlds Greatest. One of those hopefuls was Pennsylvania native, Shawn Klush. Shawn has been an Elvis fan since childhood. As he grew up and started impersonating his hero, people told him he should enter competitions. After winning several local awards he made his way to Vegas. There he spent time as one of the top Elvis Presley impersonators in the hit show 'Legends In Concert'. He rose to worldwide recognition when he won the Worlds Greatest Elvis competition.

------

 


Elvis really made a name for himself when it came to performing in Las Vegas. When you go there now, you can not walk down the street without seeing at least a dozen different Elvis Presley impersonators. Even in the hotels, you will find plenty of tribute artists paying homage to The King. One of the best is known as "Big Elvis", Peter Vallee. Vallee has been singing like Elvis since age 13 and is currently starring in his own show "Big Elvis" that plays nightly at Harrah's Piano Bar.----- Some Unlikely Elvis Presley Impersonators

 

John Stamos. Yeah, that John Stamos. He also donned the look of The King in a classic episode of the hit TV series, Full House. His character, Jesse, was even named after Elvis' twin brother! Now, we all know that John Stamos never continued his career as an Elvis Presley impersonator, but he did go on to be one of the most recognizable faces of the 90's. Who knows, maybe we will see him reprise his role one more time. 

-----

 

Hows this for an interesting twist? The former Prime Minister of Japan, Junichiro Koizumi cites Elvis as one of his personal heroes and was beside himself when he got the chance to be at the singer's former home while spending the day with former President, George W. Bush. At one point during the day he sang a few lines from "Love Me Tender" and even busted a few moves. It certainly was the most interesting tribute we have seen in a long time.

 

 Who are some of your favorite Elvis Presley Impersonators?

The Beatles Took Over The World

The Beatles Took Over The World | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

Throughout history, music has evolved much like humans have. Changing with the times and adapting. What makes music such a powerful form of media is that no matter what goes on around it, it can always connect with someone. And no band throughout history has connected with fans and people around the world like The Beatles.

 

Widely considered to be the greatest rock and roll band of all time, The Beatles began thanks to the friendship of student John Lennon and fellow musician, Paul McCartney. While Lennon was in school he formed a small band and they played gigs around the area. As time went on the band began to expand thanks to the addition of another friend, George Harrison. As The Beatles began to grow in popularity they started to tour throughout England and slowly put together their first record. The songs were a hit and their popularity soared. Soon, big music agents in America took notice and the British Invasion began.

 

In front of thousands of fans, The Beatles arrived in America to a whirlwind of appearances and media attention. They headlined on national television in front of millions, played some of the biggest arenas in the country and continued to produce top selling singles and records. They quickly became the hottest selling music act to ever come over from England and it wasn't long before they became the biggest music group in the world. The Beatles were everywhere. TV, radio, movies, books; you name it, The Beatles were in it. With such an expansive career, it is impossible to detail everything. Their lasting legacy has garnered a new generation of fans that sadly will never get to see them perform as a group. Lucky for those fans that legacy includes a plethora of tribute bands that carry on the incredible music. One of the best in the world is located in Las Vegas. BeatleShow brings the music of The Beatles back to life.

 

BeatleShow is the most authentic Beatles concert experience you will find in Las Vegas. Located inside the Saxe Theater, BeatleShow features a group of the best Beatles musicians in the world performing all of the hits, live. Featuring all of their hits from every one of their top selling albums, Beatles fans young and old will not believe their eyes (and ears) as each era of Beatles music is represented on stage. BeatleShow is the best way to relive the music of the Beatles in Las Vegas!

The 60’s were a magical time in the city of Las Vegas, you had some of the most iconic singers and entertainers to ever walk the earth yelling “I Love This City!” almost every single night. The lure was one of glitz and glam as celebrities, politicians and the everyday Joe could all be found reveling in the debauchery of smoke and drinks in one of the towns early historical casino’s or hot-spots. As stars gathered from all around to marry, party and just get away, a group of girls rose to the occasion of entertaining the stars themselves!

 

Their names were “The Golddiggers” and of all Las Vegas’ dance troupes, these showgirls took the title of most beautiful and most wanted! Mostly consisting of young women, the troupe was one for the brightest new dancers in Vegas to show off their skills and get noticed in a time when Vegas was always looking for new talent. With anywhere from four to thirteen members appearing on stage at any one time, they would always perform in the iconic style of the Sin City showgirl.

 

The group was created as an act for the Dean Martin Show, but it didn’t take long for these vixens to steal the spotlight as they soon after became known for starring in their own TV show. The girls not only joined Dean on the show, but they accompanied him along his regular acts, quickly becoming as iconic as Dino martini himself! In 1968 the girls made themselves a new name by joining Bob Hope on his USO sponsored Christmas tour of US Military bases.  The Show ended up being NBC’s highest rating program three years in a row. In 1970 the troupe landed a full time gig as members of The Dean Martin Show.

 

In 1971 things took a better turn as the girls would be given their own self titled program for two seasons until its end in 1973. The group was recast soon after and continued the legacy of the original Golddiggers by performing on various Dean Martin TV specials and programs all the way up until Deans retirement in the early 90’s.

 

Ever since the early 90’s the original members and new ones alike have continued the legendary troupe by performing for Special parties and ceremonies and occasionally starring in shows for charity and good causes. The original Dean Martin girls are still around to this day and serve as a living reminder of the good days in Vegas, showing off the one of a kind style that still to this day gave Sin City its unique flavor and appeal.

Evil Dead The Musical 4D is rising faster than the undead minions portrayed in the show, and it’s taking its local stars right up to the top alongside it! Among the fantastic cast of Nicole Unger, John Tomasello, Ben Stobber, Sarah Willick and of course Lorie Palkow, this localproduction has made its way from its humble origins at the Onyx Theater to one of the busiest venues on The Strip today.  Now located inside the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, this production has also contributed to the rise of another show which the cast also contributes, Legwarmers: an 80’s Musical. Among all the stars of these two productions, today we highlight one of the unique entertainers that gives Evil Dead The Musical its one of a kind flavor and humor the show has become so well known for, Lorie Palkow!

 

Lorie Palkow is a theater veteran in every sense of the word; a born natural, her first roles were taken on much younger than most. Lorie was in her first production at the young age of 5 performing in “Once Upon a Mattress” and playing as the horse in “Cinderella”. An avid theater supporter and enthusiast, Lorie claims she was heavily interested in Theater all throughout her high school years and was in every theater-related class her school offered. Being a part of a military family though, Lorie found herself traveling extensively across the country and ended up using her theatrical interest to help make friends in all the new places she would visit. Claiming she met all of her best friends through theater, Lorie would admit that after high school she didn’t exactly pursue her interests in performing.  She says she was hard at work going after her degree and let her interest in performing arts take the backseat, but after a move back home to Amarillo Texas, Lorie would receive the offer to try out for a local production of “Shakespeare”.

 

Ever since then Lorie has been a concrete piece of most of Sirc Michaels’ Las Vegas based work, performing in the October 2011 and January 2012 runs of Evil Dead as both Cheryl and Shelly. She was also part of other works like “Desert Devils”, “Cannibal The Musical”, “The Rocky Horror Show”, “Dr Horrible’s Sing Along Blog”, and many more. With no shortage of roles in what I personally categorize as “bad ass” theater, Lorie has made a quite a name for herself with fast rising cult musical producer Sirc Michaels. 

 

But performing isn’t her only job; Lorie actually has a Masters degree in Environmental Science and her “real” job is an Environmental Compliance Officer for a construction company. Talk about two separate worlds, Lorie is a one of a kind actress with credentials to match! Now as her “night job” continues to gain plenty of attention and recognition in the entertainment world, Lorie can continue to pursue both her passions without worry as Evil Dead was a nominee in Broadwayworld.com’s “Best Resident Show of 2013”.

 

So don’t waste one more minute, see this awesome personality do what she loves and watch Lorie Palkow as Cheryl only in “Evil Dead The Musical 4D” today!

Having won numerous “Best Look-alike” contests, Roy has captured the essence of Willie Nelson and puts on a show too convincing to miss.

 

But it’s not easy imitating the countries’ most beloved folk singer, Roy has put in plenty of hard work to land his role as one of the best Willie impersonators around. Having to practice long to capture the voice of Shotgun Willie himself, Hammock also has the look to go along with it. But Willie Nelson is one of America’s favorite stars as he has been performing his “outlaw” style music for decades and has grown to become a household name as he has had lead roles in a number of feature films from the early 80’s. Always political, Willy has gotten himself involved in more than a few sticky situations, but always coming out on the other side the same old Willie Nelson.

 

Willie Nelson was born in Texas during the early 30’s while the Great Depression was in full swing. Raised by his grandparents, Willie had an early affinity for songwriting, and after he graduated high-school and trying to make it in the air force, he dropped out of college to pursue a full time career in music. Ever since then Willie has managed to break stereotypes and drawn new boundaries on countries music in a way no other artist has before.

 

Due to his decades of contributions to country music, Willie has become cemented as one of the greatest folk singers and artists of a generation. It’s for these very reasons Roy chose to go with making a career of looking and sounding like Willie, saying he can relate to his background and Texas based roots that they share. Now after a few years of dedicated performances, he has become one of the most beloved impersonators in the Southwest, performing at different towns and ending up at the show that the Las Vegas Review Journal calls the “Best of Las Vegas 2011!”

2 for 1 shows Blog - The Crazy Gaucho's! | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

The Crazy gauchos, Eduardo Lomé and Hugo Latorre have been around the block when it comes to the stages of Las Vegas. Founded in 1984 by famed Las Vegas based producer Jorge Dipaola, The crazy Gauchos were once known as “The Los Latin Cowboys!” Wowing their audiences for over 20 years these two bring traditional Argentinean dance to the modern eye in a way you just might not expect! But few who are familiar with Vegas over the past 20 years have missed these two crazy cowboys, with their raucous attitudes and fancy footwork you will laugh and be amazed at the complicated rhythms and dance routines originating from the heart of South American Cowboy culture.

 

You will never quite know just what’s coming next, as even the audience will get dragged into all the zaniness, be careful in the front row because it just might be you! But the awe factor is ever present with this duo, taking a traditional “Boleadoras”, made of two long ropes with smooth round stone balls attached to the end, the Crazy Gauchos may use Plastic, but the pain factor is present all the same as they will flail the two stones in circles at mind bending speeds. Keeping to the intricate rhythm of the traditional “Bombo” Drum, the gaucho swinging the “Bolo” will control the beat using tap-dancing and the movement of his feet. As well as adding in any practiced maneuvers or intricacies within the beat, the drummer has to be ready to change on the drop of the dime as the routine is almost faster than your eyes can even keep up with!

 

In the old days the “Bombo Drums” were a regular part of South American culture all over, as the conquistadores settled more and more of the South American regions the unique Gauchos began popping up all over. Originally devising the “Bolo” as a hunting tool, the “bombo-drum” and gaucho dance were used as pass-times around the campfire on hunting trips. It was also a form of competition between the Gauchos, as one man would perform a dance with a pose, and the other would repeat the move and add a move of his own, this would continue until one could no longer copy the moves of the other.

While the two incorporate tradition as the base of their act, they too have started a new Las Vegas tradition as there are few who don’t remember the Los Latin Cowboys from their days at the Historical “Splash” variety show!

 

Now a part of Las Vegas’ now number 1 variety show, The Los latin Cowboys may have changed the name, but the act hasn’t changed a bit, and don’t worry as these two Gauchos are still one of the funniest acts on The Strip!  So don’t miss out on your chance to experience history on the stage with the best variety show in town, “V-The Ultimate Variety Show”, and get your tickets today!

Meet Victor & Jennie Aratas! | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

Victor and Jenny Arata are guaranteed to show you Roller-skating in a way you have most likely never imagined. Yes, this married couple have perfected an act and technique that seems to even defy the very gravity of the Earth itself! Using precision and athleticism, these death defying partners rely on strength, skill and trust to ensure safety and an awe inspiring sight for their audience! All the action is performed on a custom built platform to which, you guessed it, they spin really fast. But spinning fast would be cutting the act short, and that’s not all these daredevils get away with! They add precise poses and forms integrated into the spinning dance that rely on years of practice and an uncommon strength and sense of balance. When it’s your significant other relying on your grip to avoid a full speed spill, the stakes all of the sudden get a bit higher!


But Victor is well prepared to make sure his wife is in safe hands, having come from a family full of performers used to staring death in the face. Raised by Trapeze artists and acrobats, his mother sought to teach him an act he could perfect that was less dangerous than flipping and spinning 100+ feet above the ground. She taught him and his siblings the at first, simple roller-skating act, but Victors natural affinity for thrills made sure he would put his own touch on the routine adding a new variable to the equation, another person! Integrating his sister into the perilous spinning act he would end up impressing many and raising more than a few important eyebrows. Since then Victor has made it his priority to constantly train his body to handle the extreme stress and tension of precisely and safely performing the routine.


But Victors Sister would later end up leaving the act, after becoming injured during one of their practice routines the family decided it was time for her to move on. Soon after Victor met Jennie, a Russian born ex-figure skater, and decided she would be the one he would incorporate into the act. After a grueling 8 month training circuit, Jennie would develop the great strength needed to stay safe in such a perilous situation. With her figure skating training, Jennie easily adapted to the spins and intensity of the act. But the two would have to train together for awhile yet before they dared to launch themselves in front of live audiences. After nearly 3 years they had finally decided they were ready and took the stage for the first time successfully. Now having made appearances all over the country, and even appearing as special guests on The Ellen Show and starring in many different charity events, The Aratas have had no shortage of good press as they keep on spinning into the heart of Las Vegas. So come see one of the most thrilling and intimate dare-devil duo’s on the Las Vegas Strip today, and get your tickets to see “The Skating Aratas” at V! The Ultimate Variety Show today!

Gregory Popovich and His Compassionate Message of Animal Individuality! | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

Gregory Popovich is more than just a professional circuseer from Russia, he’s an enthusiastic animal lover as well! The host of the world renowned Comedy pet Theater, Popovich has proven to be a master of the animal arts. But training dogs and cats are one thing, defining a whole new way of respecting and teaching pets is a whole new ballgame that Gregory himself has made the rules for. Yes Gregory is enthusiastic about rescuing animals from shelters, so much so he has come to train an entire team of elite feline and canine performers who just love being in the spotlight!


But as Gregory crosses oceans and gets stuck at truck stops, he travels to spread an important message regarding our oft neglected animal companions. Through patience and understanding, this world class performer has discovered a way to bring out the individual (and natural!) talents of all his animals! Yep that’s right, natural talents, as Popovich discovers each pet’s unique personality and simply rolls with it. Teaching tricks and routines, as well as other unique elements from his show such as piggy back riding and hand balancing, these animals are turned from pound hound to show dog, all within their own comfort zone. Hard to believe right? Well you have to see the show with your own eyes to truly believe it, but the animals are loving every second of stage life, heck Greg has even custom built pet trailers loaded with air conditioning and heating. But while his methods are proven, and pretty adorable, it’s his message that should be remembered in the end. “Each pet is a unique individual, like us Human Beings, and should be treated with love and respect no matter what the species.”


It’s not hard to see this message carried into action, as the fun loving animals have a blast on stage more so than Gregory. But training cats and dogs and spreading a message of animal compassion is Gregories life ambition, and quickly becoming his life’s work! With tours lined up across the country, it becomes obvious that this one of a kind production is a hit with audiences of all ages.


We dare you not to laugh as mice board a train for Amsterdam or a bunch of dogs try to play European football, maybe a cat being rescued by a large dog from a burning building is more your thing? Whatever it may be Gregory has something cooked up to tickle your funny bone the right way, did we mention his award for greatest technical juggler of all time? While his pets may be a hit, Popovich is not just a trainer of animals, hailing from the Moscow circus and born to 2 performers, there a few more talents besides animal whispering. Don’t miss out, you are guaranteed to laugh the night away, and be prepared to cry tears of hilarity. Come and check out Gregory Popovich’s Comedy Pet Theater today, and see “master of balance and juggling arts,” Gregory and his troupe of fun loving ex-strays proudly strutting their stuff for awe’s and laughs!

UNLV Basketball Season opened to The Sounds of Mo5aic!

UNLV Basketball Season opened to The Sounds of Mo5aic! | Las Vegas Shows + Entertainment | Scoop.it

“A capella” group Mo5aic (Mosaic) has been on the rise for some time now. Opening the Season for UNLV Runnin’ Rebels Basketball with the National Anthem (and if you follow basketball then you know this is a BIG season). Featured in 2007 as the winner of CBS “The Next Great A capella Group” judged by none other than “Boyz 2 Men.” Since then Mo5aic has been on a mission to bring their Voice-Instrument sound to the forefront of entertainment. Having been featured on Americas Got Talent and receiving outstanding reviews, this group of singers have managed to land a steady stream of big name gigs as they slowly climb to bigger heights.


One of which being the 51st Grammies and the Academy Awards. Playing alongside the likes of Joey Fatone, the group managed to get their voices heard far and wide. Destined to take A capella out from the Niche that’s been created in the mainstream, they’ve taken a familiar sound and delivery and turned it into something unique. Claiming to want to give the genre a ‘Facelift”, the group is made up of 5 good friends who all met up through their various paths in the A capella community. Adding an honest and lighthearted approach to their music, you can’t help but like the guys as their interactions hint at the passion they possess for the music. Might be exactly why they have been given the chances to perform with the likes of the legendary pop singer Prince who they claim is a huge influence.


Now having comfortably switched residency to Las Vegas, they have found the perfect home for their talents. Backing one of the strips biggest headliners for nearly a year we now have the honor of hosting them at one of the best resident shows in town! That’s right, you can see Mo5aic at V-The Ultimate Variety Show! (check the Mo5aic website to confirm dates) . Now a huge piece of the Las Vegas equation, Mo5aic has given back considerably to the community through various charities. Known to be huge supporters of the artistic community in Vegas, contributing the cultural rise which many call unprecedented. Frequently donating time and funds by hosting fundraisers for the Public Education Foundation and various HIV/Aids causes such as “the Golden Rainbow”. They also “Adopted” the Las Vegas based “West Preparatory Academy” and provide scholarships to outstanding students and various forms of financial support. They have also been featured numerous times on the Ribbon of Life. Because of their positive addition to the community, they now had the opportunity to open the hopeful 2012-2013 season of the Runnin’ Rebels Basketball program with The National Anthem, which is highly appreciated by all the locals. With such a huge track record of rising success and invaluable assistance to the Las Vegas community, we are not only proud but honored to call them Las Vegas residents and local stars.
