"Tease", a brand new show at The Blue Note - Las Vegas, is a vast departure from the usual jazz fare associated worldwide with that venue, and also a departure from the typical Vegas show as well. If you think, "A Chorus Line" goes wa-a-y off Broadway to Vegas, you're close to the theme of "Tease", which portrays the nightly life, trials and exploitations of the "Gentlemen's Club Dancer". Five talented female singer dancers, plucked from various casino lounge and show stages deliver the original score in a believable, humorous and provocative combination of musical theater and mild strip-tease. Treasure Guffy as Angel "Had A Dream" that her life would be quite different. Judy Lombino lights it up as the "new girl" with some great "Stuff Like That There". Kathryn Arianoff as Portia asks the musical question, "Do You think I'm Hot", my answer, "Yea"!! Charidy Sullivan Lafontaine and Jacqueline Holland sing about their love interests in the campy songs, "My Boyfriend" and of course, "I Prefer Girls". The male characters include Steve Connolly as a wise-cracking bus-boy turns Vegas Elvis, Franco Deliz as the "been there, done that" Dicky the DJ/club manager, and Stewart Daylida as Billy Bob, the "John" whose bachelor party at the club turns his pending nup-tials into a mere apparition. We wish this risky Ouellet / Tumaroff production success if only for their originality and the strong talent they've assembled on the stage.

The Regent Hotel in Summerlin is now the beautiful new, Marriott Las Vegas Golf & Spa Resort. They feature nightly entertainment in the Round Bar with great pop and jazz solo and duo acts (Sun. - Wed.) and variety bands in Addison's Show Lounge, this week starring The Klique on Thursday - Saturday. The upscale resort has fabulous rooms, incredible food and all the amenities expected at a Marriott. Great times both on and off the course are the plans for the future! Next week Latin Vida brings their high-energy bilingual show to the stage for three nights of song and Latin dance. Cornell Gunter's Coasters will perform beginning January 31 - February 2 presenting their incredibly entertaining show and featuring their hit songs like "Charlie Brown", "Yackety Yak" and many more. Don't miss this hotel's exciting weekend line-ups. Shows begin at 8 on Thursday and 9 pm on Friday and Saturday.

The Empire Bar has closed for remodeling and the action has moved to the legendary Bar at Times Square, home of the world famous Dueling Pianos at New York / New York. The party starts with solo and duo acts such as Kevin Baker, John Garder, Bobby Dickerson and more at 3 pm until 7 pm. Then at 8 pm, Chris Nelson, Mike Cavanaugh, Phyllis Griffin, Ray Glover, Conrad Hawthorne, John Jones, and others rock out at the dual Dueling Pianos. It is the most interactive, fun Rock 'n' Roll show where the audience can sing and dance and go wild seven nights a week!
