Tres Jazz Restaurant at the beautiful Paris Hotel & Casino, is truly "very jazz" and varied jazz. On Mondays, the club features Jazz Standards Night, with the Tommy Thompson Quartet (aka Thompson Project) leaning towards their repertoire of the great music of the 40's and 50's. On Thursdays, it's Latin Jazz Night, featuring the sounds of the Rick Arroyo Latin Percussion Ensemble and occasionally other great Latin jazz artists such as The Paul Dourge Quartet. The Thompson Project performs the other nights of the week with smooth jazz during dinner, and "funking it up" as the night progresses. This restaurant features the perfect blend of atmosphere, music, food and service and is truly a complete experience. General Manager; Herve Allain, puts his own personal European touch in every aspect of the club. Tommy Thompson is one of Las Vegas' premier jazz artists, having opened for such legendary acts as Spiro Gyra, Chicago, Aaron Neville and Tower of Power. Steve Buckman is featured on keyboards, Teddy Davis Jr. / bass, and Nick Lewis on the drums.

Sinbad's Lounge at the exciting new Aladdin Hotel & Casino features the "The Heroes of Rock & Soul," presenting full dress impersonations of some of the greatest stars to hit the stage. From B.B. King to Donna Summers, from Mick Jagger to "The Fukky Divas," the "Heroes" have got it going on. The spacious Sinbad Lounge overlooks the beautiful new casino and the excitement generated by the talent is felt throughout the property. The Aladdin offers the best shopping I've seen anywhere, fabulous restaurants and the exclusive London Club Casino, featuring nightly entertainment by the incredible Andrew James, a handsome crooner who sounds so much like Sinatra it's uncanny. Andrew performs from 9 pm. 1 am. nightly.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow the Yellow Brick Road, that leads to the all new Railhead Lounge at Boulder Station. Yellow Brick Road is a fantastic classic rock band that takes you back to a previous dimension. The repertoire consists of every classic hit ever written (with the exception of four songs) done as well (sometimes even better) than the original recordings. Brody Dolyniuk, Roger McGaMe, James Stone and Scott Cwalinski, have been joined by new members, Jeff Crashen / percussion and Todd Rogers on keys. The vocal performances are nothing less than stellar and Brody's music and wit have truly found their niche. Country and Rock 'n' Roll headliners are featured on a regular basis as well in this fantastic new venue. "The Railhead, Is Where Rock & Country Collide!"

The Dueling Pianos of Times Square perform seven nights a week between 8 pm. and 2 am. This is the most fun you can have with your clothes on as the sing-along par ty never ends. From the oldies, to classic rock and even today's greatest hits, it's next to impossible to stump these great talents with a request.
