It's time to "get your groove on" with Groove City, the kickin' new dance band in the Las Vegas Hilton Nightclub. The dance party takes place every night (Wednesday - Sunday) with the all live sounds that has propelled the group from being a sought after dance, concert and show band in the Northwest, to the Vegas stage. Lead singer, Kenny Jones, is a show by himself, movin' and groovin' and singing with recording artist style and quality. Johnny McClain, lead guitar/vocals, Barry Williams, Keys/vocals, John Caldwell, bass/vocals and Larry McClure, drums, comprise the group that hail from Chicago, Kansas City and Houston. Their combined musical backgrounds in performing, producing and recording have brought together a unique sound and blend second to no other R & B band in the city. From 70's disco to today's high energy dance hits, this band does it all and with mega-class! Come down and boogie to the sounds of Groove City, only at The Las Vegas Hilton Nightclub.

Cheval gallops under the big top between Bellagio & The Monte Carlo Hotel nightly for a limited holiday engagement. The magnificent horses perform amazing feats of dressage and the display of discipline by the giant animals is unbelievable. The Cirque de Soliel performers and production people have done it again; first in the air, then in the water and now on horseback. The acrobats amazingly jump from horse to horse, flip in mid-air at high speed and land precisely from where the leapt and even crawl under the belly of their steeds while racing wildly around the ring. The comedy, the agility and the equine power and beauty are a delight for all ages and a wonderful holiday experience for the whole family.

Cat Daddy performs nightly at Paris Hotel in Le Cabaret. The cleverness of "the cat" comes out in the song selection as they stealthfully weave their soulful selections, causing audience members to pounce onto the dance floor. From Earth, Wind & Fire to the Temps, from Santana to Michael McDonald, it's a wonderful, funky presentation of every song you know and love. That's where the "daddy" comes in, with memorable songs like "Papa Was a Rolling Stone", "Let's Get it On" and many more. People catching the first set end up staying all-night and coming back for more. All it takes is one visit to Le Cabaret at Paris, and you too will be saying, "Who's your daddy?" Cat Daddy!

The Bar at Times Square ain't square at all. New York / New York Hotel presents the most exciting Dueling Piano Show in the country. In its fourth year, nightly performances are standing room only with the crowd singing along to their favorite requests. From Janis Joplin to Creed, Sinatra to Smashmouth, at least one of the four artists nightly will know your song. It is also the favorite place to take a bachelor or bachelorette for that all important roast!
