Vocalist extraordinaire Andrew James has returned to the Galleria Bar at Caesars Palace performing each Wednesday through Sunday from 9 pm - 2 am. The talented singer creates a journey back through time to the days of Frank, Sammy and Dean. The beautiful new Galleria is right where the Rat Pack used to hold court after Frank Sinatra's appearances in Circus Maximus, the former showroom at Caesars. The good ol' days are right there for the taking as you can sip a martini or cognac, smoke a stogie, and hear the music of Frank, Dean-o, Bobby Darin, and many more. Andrew is the true reincarnation of all these performers in one. From the voice to the personality, the charisma to the character, there is none better. Pianist Billy Stevenson accompanies Andrew and they fit together like hand and glove. Requests are welcome and "Lady Luck" is within earshot of the casino for those gamblers who have a little sentimental superstition.

Lots of fun on the comedy scene these days with The Riviera Comedy Club being my first choice for evening hysteria. Mac King's afternoon Comedy Magic Show at Harrahs can beat the heat right out of your shoes and who knows what will turn up in his. The funniest one-man show on the strip has been voted #1 by locals and tourists alike.

Dueling Pianos perform nightly at New York / New York with a following of patrons that have been singing and dancing along to their music for over 5 years! Shows are from 8 - 2 nightly and 8 - 3 am on Friday and Saturday.

Sunset Station is rockin' every Thursday night to the sounds of the #1 70's and 80's band of Las Vegas, Loveshack. Your favorite dance hits performed with the energy it takes to move a generation in a venue with great sound, exciting lighting, and a dance floor that's packed with lovely ladies and hot guys! Green Valley is the place to be, every Thursday night.

Top of the World Restaurant & Lounge at The Stratosphere presents Duprey & Di Napoli performing the standards. This new act consists of Brian Duprey who is a young, handsome Harry Connick Jr. type and Nick Di Napoli whose natural voice is like a digital reproduction of Tony Bennett. No impressions here, just natural talent and amazing quality. Enjoy the view, the cuisine and the music in a very "high" class envi-ronment (I think its 1100 feet up!) Duprey and Di Napoli work together on Thursday - Saturday and Duprey with accompanist Kym Purling on Wednesday and Sunday nights.

Paris Hotel has two wonderful venues for entertainment. There's Napoleon's for a jazzy cocktail with The Tommy Thompson Project and Gary Stevens Quartet featuring Kim Styles. Then, Le Cabaret is where the people "Get Down and Get Funky" with the awesome sounds of Cat Daddy and LF8. These are two the hottest bands in Las Vegas and they're back to back in the same lounge!
