“Criss Angel’s MINDFREAK Recreated for Criss Angel-themed Patient Exam Room” By Sandy Zimmerman

May 14th, 2019 • by Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman)-

Criss Angel’s unveiling of his new “Criss Angel-themed” patient exam room at Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. Criss Angel and his family arrived Shaunyl Benson, five year old Johnny Crisstopher and baby Xristos Yanni.

When a child’s world is upside down because of illness, this new concept of a celebrity-themed patient exam room becomes a remarkable calming influence for the child. Las Vegas artist Juan Muniz saw Criss Angel’s “MINDFREAK” show at Planet Hollywood and interpreted how a child would experience Angel’s mysterious, magical performance.

Typically the usual patient’s exam room is cold, without any decor, and might add to the child’s frustrations. Yet look at these walls!

Criss Angel’s room is the opposite, very inviting and even comical with hand prints, a card, tree, and other objects floating, a young Criss Angel and so much more to see! It is for kids so kid-friendly themes are important.

Criss and Shunyl faced their own child’s three-year battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and are both thankful Johnny has recovered from cancer. Even before Angel’s personal experience gave him an awareness he was an advocate.   

 Cure 4 The Kids Foundation exists to provide high-quality, research-focused medical treatment to children battling cancer and many other life-threatening conditions. Cure 4 The Kids Foundation operates the only outpatient childhood cancer treatment center in the State of Nevada and is proudly accredited by The Joint Commission.  cure4thekids.org

 

About Criss Angel: For more than a decade, Criss Angel has dominated the world of magic as the biggest name on the planet.  From his role as star, creator, executive producer and director of Criss Angel MINDFREAK on A&E, to countless critically acclaimed television specials, best-selling books, top-grossing retail products, sold-out touring shows and more, Criss is the most influential and imitated magician of the modern era.

“Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel Opened at Harrahs”

May 5th, 2019 • by Sandy Zimmerman

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Denise Truscello)

Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel” brings the entire story of Elvis Presley’s hits along with his life in a dazzling full-production show. This impressive show was designed to highlight the cast with two curved staircases, several risers, bold lighting, visuals, and magna-life-sized scenes of the past.

The audience watches each of the more than 18 songs with their singing, dancing, narration, 6 piece band, all entwined in the concert. It is difficult to realize, there is just one set yet everything was coordinated for continual minute-to-minute changes to suit each song.

The show began with his first RCA single “Heartbreak Hotel” (1956), and the playbook continued with “Jailhouse Rock”, “Hound Dog”, “All Shook Up”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Let the Good Times Roll”, and many more, to discussing Elvis’s TV and film career.

I felt the producers researched the important areas of Elvis Presley’s life, found many little-known facts, and sincerely compiled a look at the star, the man and his world! Elvis created his own original musical style as he seemed to feel each beat of the music with all of his interpretations built from the love of the sound of this music.

They said Elvis had gospel music in his soul and country music in his voice which was an unbeatable combination! He also surprised everyone with his exaggerated hip movements and gained a large female following. With all of that enormous talent and so young, Elvis Presley stood out from the other entertainers and became the King of Rock and Roll.

Elvis’s first film, Love Me Tender(1956), was a box office hit. After leaving the Army in 1960, Presley resumed his career and was soon back at the top of the charts with the soundtrack for his film GI Blues. He continued recording music and acting in such films as Blue Hawaii (1961), Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962) and Viva Las Vegas (1964).

“Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel” runs 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Mondays with added 3 p.m. matinees on Sundays at the Harrah’s Hotel, 3475 S Las Vegas Blvd, on the strip.

Sandy Zimmerman produces television programs, documentaries, and travel specials around the world- in Beijing and on the Yangtze River Cruise in China, and in addition to travel specials in Italy and other countries as well as for Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion Canyon National Park, the Grand Canyon North Rim National Park, a real Cattle Drive similar to the early westerns in Reno, Nevada, and other destinations in the US.

“The Park MGM Hotel’s Eataly Transports Italy to You!”- By Sandy Zimmerman

January 7th, 2019 • by Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman-COOK, CHEESE, SAMPLES- and other 2 photos by Eataly)

I was invited to attend the opening of the Park MGM Hotel’s unusual Eataly, a 40,000 square-feet building filled with everything Italian! It was a wonderful afternoon tasting the delicacies, cuisine, and wines of Italy.

I produced travel specials in Italy three times and feel Eataly was reminiscent of their very large markets and outside shopping areas which featured many different businesses in one place.

To provide an idea of the wide extent of food and goods available, I want to mention some details about what you will experience at the Eataly.

There are three Restaurants all specializing in Black Angus beef, beef with a high level of fine marbling, tenderness, age and color from Creekstone Farms, but each restaurant offers different recipes and styles of cooking.

The Manzo (meaning beef) Restaurant is an upscale butcher’s restaurant with an Italian wood-burning grill adding a romantic touch to dining (opening soon). 

The Gran Caffe Milano serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and the La Pizza E La Pasta Ristorante is known for their Napoli-style pizza and al dente pasta.

If you love cheese, this is the place to spend some time! Step over to each of the four Mozzarella Bars and try complimentary tastes from their mega-large blocks of cheese.

You can choose eating Mozzarella alone or they also offer Mozzarella pairings for that melt-in-your-mouth difference with flavors to tempt your appetite!

One of the Mozzarella Bars- Mozzarella Di Bufala Dop uses water buffalo milk from Campania while the second bar- Burrata  prepares the food with stracciatella as an Italian soup or dessert, the third- Stracciatella uses the hand-torn method and the forth- House made Mozzarella hand-pulls the Mozzarella. To an Italian, that does make a difference! The Mozzarella is prepared daily in-house.

Eataly offers so much to the public, this is only a part of what they have to offer. I am preparing another article in order to really tell the whole story!  

Make sure you have a few hours to really experience Eataly, try not to miss any of their unique stops and exciting cuisine. This is Italy all in one place!

Hours: Monday-Sunday from 10 am- 11 pm;

For information, call 702-730-7617. Eataly is located inside the Park MGM Hotel, 3770 S. Las Vegas Blvd.   https://www.parkmgm.com/en/restaurants/eataly.html

I had a chance to see Amanda King, a new name in the Las Vegas’ entertainment scene. She seems to light up the room when she sings as Amanda’s warm jazz renditions add a happy note to the evening.

Amanda only sang one set during Rita Lim’s show at the El Cortez Lounge yet the audience responded so well and wanted more. She is a natural performer projecting such a happy mood, a feeling of happiness.

Amanda’s show will make you feel happy and start the holiday festivities,December 2, with the feeling of the Christmas spirit right away, don’t wait. She has a very different play list for her show packed with holiday classics from Duke Ellington, Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, and others.

Amanda also brings songs you may not have heard, and special songs with all with the feeling of happiness and joy.

In addition to enjoying all of this holiday music, Amanda features Rita Lim and her jazzy way of delivering songs! This evening will be very special, adding a swingin’ Christmas before the holiday festivities so you can begin December feeling good, celebrating ahead of Christmas with her show.

This would be a great time to give Amanda’s Christmas show tickets, an EARLY, BEFORE CHRISTMAS gift to your sweetheart, family, friends, or business associates!

After appearing in San Francisco for many years, Amanda will headline her own “Swingin’ Christmas with the Amanda King Show” in Las Vegas, on Sunday, December 2, at the Summerlin Library, at 7:30 pm.

Sandy Interviews David Goldrake, star of “Imaginarium” By Sandy Zimmerman

October 14th, 2018 • by Sandy Zimmerman

(Photo of DAVID GOLDRAKE during interview and “ESCAPE” Photo by Sandy Zimmerman)

was invited to attend the closing night of “Imaginarium” after a successful run and discussed his plans in his dressing room after the show.

SZ: “Imaginarium” was so different, I heard you’re going to produce a new show.”

GOLDRAKE: “We had 369 shows in one and a half years and it’s been an amazing adventure at the Tropicana Hotel. We’ve had lots and lots of support through the local community as well as people from around the world coming to see us. This has been an amazing run.”

SZ: “Your show has changed from when I saw it opening night, you added so much more and you even hung from a rope in the ceiling being propelled across the audience to the stage.”

GOLDRAKE: “Yes, we’ve changed a lot of the show. When we opened,we had a vision for the show and were able to implement a lot of that vision in the last 16 months and happy we’ve gotten to this point. I’m excited to continue the progression and illusions of the show in our next venues.

We plan to do a new show in 2019 and are currently talking to a couple of people here in Las Vegas and have some options which are extremely interesting. I’m very excited to be able to develop the show and go in a new direction possibly.”

SZ: “There so much in this show how can you add any more?”

GOLDRAKE: “The skies the limit!”

SZ: “Can you tell us anything about your new show, I know it must be a secret!”

GOLDRAKE: “I won’t tell anything yet but you can expect it’s going to be bigger than the one we currently have, or it is going to be a completely new concept which is going to be a 360 degree surrounding environment. It all depends on whoever gets the show. I’m very happy to work on both projects now.”

#   #   #

“Imaginarium” is a spectacular show with exciting acts combined with magical feats, grand illusions, dancing routines, sideshow performers, and especially Goldrake actually performs Houdini’s dangerous under water escape as he perform on-stage almost the entire time of the show!

“Jeffrey Osborne Feels Love is worth it All”-ALIANTE Hotel, September 15- by Sandy Zimmerman

“Jeffrey Osborne Feels Love is worth it All”-

ALIANTE Hotel, September 15

by Sandy Zimmerman

INTERVIEW with Jeffrey Osborne, four time Grammy Award Nominations, Gold and Platinum albums.

SZ: “You feel Love is Worth It All”, as in the name of your new album.”

OSBORNE: “The single talks about long time relationships, it’s better to
fight the trials and
tribulations we go through with a relationship when
you truly love someone then it is worth fighting for all the trials and
tribulations – love is worth all of that. Why start all over again that creates
new problems. The best thing get through those times and you’ll find
out love is worth it all!

SZ: “Your songs are so personal, they have such meaning to you.”

OSBORNE: “I’ve been married for 36 years.”

SZ: “So you know!” (Laughing)”

OSBORNE: “Year, I know! (Laughing). I wrote and produced all of the songs in the new album except one I produced with my son, Jeffrey, Junior, a song called “Work It”. I never thought I
would write a song like that. My son went to college, hanging out in the dorm with his friends and told me he was going to be a rapper. I said, wow. He made his own music and now he travels with me and does my sound engineering. We got together and wrote a song. I thought it would be nice if he gave me something that was a little more today but his song is more R&B than any on the record. (Laughing)”

SZ: “That’s funny! (Laughing). You write with so much feeling, you exemplify the way people feel about love.”

OSBORNE: “I grew up in a house where I had to listen to everything, my father was a great trumpet player, all my sisters and brothers listened to Ella Fitzgerald, and the songs back then were all about love, it seems everything has changed. I’m not crazy about some of the vocal concepts, it’s getting a little too dark for me. I think love is a universal language and it touches people all over the world.

That’s the most important thing for me, if I’m going to sing a song about love my goal is to touch someone, I don’t think you can touch anyone with derogatory lyrics (Laughing). I think you can touch someone if you’re speaking about love from the heart.”

SZ: “You have gone thru music of different genres throughout your career and succeeded in all types of music- soul, R&B, and you do it all!”

OSBORNE: “Yes, I’ve been doing it a long time, I started recording with LTD in 1972 and I’ve seen a lot of changes in music before then. It was the jazz singer then we came into the Motown sound and moved into R&B, went to hip hop, then rap, and I don’t know what it is now. (Laughing).”

SZ: “You have a mixed vocal range and can switch from soul to punk and R&B!”

OSBORNE: “Yes, I think that was the beauty of being in a group like LTD. We had many visions and we all wrote so we had a chance to sing all types of songs from the different types of writers in the group. That’s a nice combination for a show, if we have real up tempo songs and can deliver ballads that makes the show complete.

There are not a lot of artists out there, they are either balladeers or funk and there’s not a lot of them who can mix it up and do both.”

SZ: “I like your saying, ‘I spread love the old school way!”

OSBORNE: “That’s what old school is all about. We’re into a whole new era now. Everything is remote control, back then we had relationships. The kids play video games today, no interaction.”

The Martin & Lewis Tribute Appears Sunday, September 2-

August 23rd, 2018 • by Sandy Zimmerman

The Martin and Lewis Tribute Appears Sunday, September 2 By Sandy Zimmerman (Photos by the Martin and Lewis Tribute Show)

I had the opportunity to interview Tom Stevens, a talented performer living in Las Vegas. Tony Lewis, the other half of the Martin and Lewis Tribute, lives in Australia and will be flying in next week for their appearance at the Suncoast Hotel.

It is amazing how Tony Lewis, from as far away as Australia, and another man, Tom Stevens, from across the globe living in the United States, could get together to produce a show!

For 27 years, Tony Lewis had been seeking a Dean Martin partner to join him and was blown away when seeing Tom Steven’s Dean Martin video. Tony knew Tom would be perfect! Tony and Tom met on the telephone and afterwards Tom enthusiastically photo-shopped his “Dean” picture next to Tony’s and the response was phenomenal.

The duo were booked in Australia before meeting in person! They only had a few months to create an act and sent everything back and forth until Tom arrived with only three days to rehearse their new act.

As two professionals, their success united the pair. Tony Lewis has 30 years of experience as Jerry Lewis in Australia while Tom Stevens appeared in Las Vegas celebrating more than 15 years and over 1,000 shows performing his tribute to Dean Martin.

Since Tom Stevens’ first appearance at the Dean Martin Festival in 1998, he received the “Best Dean Martin Tribute Artist” and Dean’s daughter agreed.

They both have amazed audiences and are known for their own shows yet together they truly are the essence of the famous duo. Tom and Tony chose some of the classic comic routines and have even added new ones to their show.

Many of the tribute artists don’t look like the celebrities but the resemblance is uncanny the way Tony and Tom really do! Tom is a singer and Tony, a comedian, just like Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

The public loves these tribute shows and they are very popular today as a way to hear the songs and enjoy the tributes to their favorite performers.

I reviewed Dean Martin at Bally’s Hotel when he performed
by himself and Jerry Lewis the same at the South Point Hotel,
and am looking forward to seeing the Martin and Lewis Tribute,
Sunday, September 2, at 3 PM, in the Suncoast Hotel,
9090 Alta Drive and South Rampart.

Showtime is 3 p.m. Tickets start at $14.95 plus taxes and fees,
and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000;
online at www.suncoastcasino.com  or in-person at Suncoast,
The Orleans, Gold Coast and Sam’s Town. Tickets may also be purchased the day of the show (depending upon availability) at the venue box office. www.martinandlewistribute.comwww.suncoastcasino.com



The James Bond Wine Table

May 15th, 2010 • by admin
When you visit Del Friscos, do not miss seeing the most amazing $1.2 million dollar James Bond table. Looking like a normal table at first, Jacque touched her remote control pad and the table suddenly opened to present the James Bond OO7 Films Wine Collection. Eighteen magnums of Cabernet wine from Napa Valley wineries each represent different Bond films. These one- of-a kind bottles are each laser-edged.
