A little song and little dance kept hosts Gary Campbell and Connie Ross singing the praises of their talented guests on the national radio and television show "Backstage Live" last Saturday night.
Singer/performer Earl Turner dropped in to announce his recent move into the headlining act in the Copacabana Showroom at the Rio Hotel and Casino, Wednesday and Thursdays at 8 p.m. This talented entertainer keeps you dancing with a wide variety of songs, from Gospel to Rock and Roll, and the ability to play five musical instruments. He commands the full spectrum of music and vocal range, making each performance individual and original. Turner discussed his long entertainment career with Gary and Connie and then closed out the first hour with a heart-warming performance of "She's A Lady."
The beautiful music didn't stop there! "Five o'clock Shadow," a pop/rock band from Boston who has perfected their vocal band form of a cappella singing, dropped in to give a little sample of their unique style. Currently, the band is traveling all over the country performing at schools and promoting their CD, "Wonders of the World."
Making his return appearance on the "Backstage Live" show, actor Scott Shepherd stopped in and talked about his new projects as the "Lone Ranger™." That's right, Shepherd is the first authorized "Lone Ranger™" since Clayton Moore, making appearances at Las Vegas events and fundraisers.
Last, but never least, the talented and energetic duo of May & Murray took a short break from their performances at the Kabuki Lounge inside the Imperial Palace to sing a tune for the "Backstage" audience. Stuart May and Mariellen Murray have become a favorite act in the intimate lounge. Catch their singing and dancing nightly starting at 9 p.m., Dec. 2 -22.
