Producer Greg Thompson presents Showgirls, a sexy and provocative docu-revue of the history of the most sensuous of Vegas icons. Beautiful costumes, high energy dancing and above all, some of the most beautiful showgirls in Las Vegas. The also very beautiful and talented Sunny, stars both as your guide and as a marvelous singing impressionist. The show is presented every night at 11 pm, dark Sundays in the Samba Theater, only at the Rio.

The Harvest Festival pulls into Cashman Center from August 23 -25, 2002 and showcases the highest quality of handmade American arts and crafts. Woodcarvings, jewelry, ceramics and pottery, furniture to candles and even edible arts will be on display. Entertainment will be as diverse as The Scott Land Marionettes to the bizarre comedy magic of Amazing Jonathon. Environmental and strolling entertainers will also perform throughout the day.

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.

LF8 makes a brief stop in La Playa Lounge at Harrahs from the 15th - 18th before they open in The Voodoo Lounge at The Rio. The band's success at both properties has been astronomical and make sure you experience the glass LF8-ors on the outside of the Rio tower. Quite the view of the city on the move. LF8's repertoire is the latest in contemporary dance music and their handsome and hot singers, Ron Runde, Eric Cortez and Tommy Pangelinan are always jammin' with cool moves and grooves.

Dueling Pianos perform weekends, Thursday. - Saturday from 9 p - 1 am at The Crazy Armadillo Lounge at the Stratosphere. It's a raucous sing-a-long party that just doesn't quit. More romantic music awaits 1100 feet above at the Top of the World starring crooners Di Napoli & Duprey.

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 en-ergy 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!
