Amanda recently moved to Las Vegas and is already scheduled to appear in her first headlining show. We can experience why they loved her in San Francisco and New York for so long.

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. Tickets $25, discounts for seniors, military and groups. http://www.RainMakerProductionsLV.com Call 702-675-4139.

With the cost of shows at the hotels, this is the BARGAIN OF THE YEAR!

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! You will be delighted with your experience. This show can be savored for its latest 20th century techniques or simply enjoyed for the fun of it by the whole family.

“Jeffrey Osborne Feels Love is worth it All”-

ALIANTE Hotel, September 15

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 Heritage Turkeys Dating from the Original Thanksgiving

November 7th, 2017 • by Sandy Zimmerman


Sandy Zimmerman’s Las Vegas TV & articles usually reviews shows and restaurants but Thanksgiving is  arriving soon, more than just a time to get together with friends and family. What does Thanksgiving really mean? In 1621, the first Thanksgiving celebrated giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest traced to the Pilgrims in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The Thanksgiving meal usually is welcomed with a feast of turkey, warm gravy, cranberry sauce and all of the fixings. Many people don’t realize that some of the breeds of those historic turkeys have been protected and preserved from the 1920’s!

Known as Heirloom Turkeys, rare and unique breeds like the Auburn, Black and American Bronze Turkey Heirloom breeds, the best of both worlds, the old world Heritage turkeys and the modern healthy Organic Heritage Turkeys.
The Diestel Turkey Farm is one of a few farms today dedicated to breeding a variety of strains of historic Heirloom Turkey breeds. The Diestel family keeps up the tradition of preserving the Heirloom by handling them the old fashioned way of the 20th century with a natural foothills environment and methods.

Diestel Heirloom turkeys are slow grown in Northern California, where the deep well water and fresh mountain air complements the Heirloom turkey’s diet of certified organic grains. Our birds are fed a vegetarian diet that’s 100% free of GMOs, animal by-products, antibiotics, growth enhancers and hormones.

Diestel has organic oven roasted whole turkey, pasture raised turkey and American Heirloom turkeys by
The heritage turkeys are still a tiny minority, around 25,000 raised annually compared to more than 200,000,000 industrial turkeys and 7,000,000 turkeys in the wild. Despite increasing interest in heritage turkeys, they are still a tiny minority, perhaps 25,000 raised annually compared to more than 200,000,000 industrial turkeys and 7,000,000 turkeys in the wild.

Some of the different breeds- Diestel’s Naturally Oven Roasted Turkey, Organic Oven Roasted Turkey, The American Heirloom Collection Turkey and Fra ’Mani Brined & Seasoned Young Turkey; http://diestelturkey.com/organic-oven-roasted-whole-turkey/

Murray SawChuck’s Shrunken Head Party”

June 19th, 2017 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Now Murray Has His Own Shrunken Head

By Sandy Zimmerman

Murray SawChuck Celebrity Magician, at the Planet Hollywood, has always been ready to have a party but this one was really different!

The Golden Tiki Bar’s classic south Pacific look is the perfect place to see shrunken heads. They opened the curtain and the Shrunken Head ceremony began with The Baron of the Universe, The Golden Tiki’s managing partner Branden Powers and celebrity magician Murray SawChuck. Brandon opened the box and the shrunken head was presented to Murray.

Murray’s head looked like him complete with his swept-up hair and glasses. Glasses on a shrunken head? Well the Smithsonian artist Terry Barr wanted to be as accurate as possible.

There is really a method for making shrunken heads, not many people know how but being with the Smithsonian Museum, Terry Barr creates those on display at The Golden Tiki Bar.

He takes over four weeks with each of these special celebrity heads. There are now seven shrunken heads for you to compare with the “real” celebrities- Murray SawChuck, Vinnie Paul, Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Carrot Top, Frank Marino, Robin Leach and Norm Clarke.

Besides making shrunken heads, The Golden Tiki Bar offers dining and events.

Murray is known as a magician, comedian, actor, host, humanitarian (charity events) and maybe more. His show at the Planet Hollywood offers fun for the whole family.

Murray dubbed himself “The ‘Dennis the Menace’ of Magic,” and his shows often consist of a blend of “comical mishaps” that result in illusions and magic tricks. He was featured in the fifth season of America’s Got Talent, and is the resident magic historian on Pawn Stars. He has also appeared as a magic coach on five episodes of the VH1 series Celebracadabra, and has been a guest star on shows such as Reno 911! Last Comic Standing Celebrity Blind Date, War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave, Ring of Darkness and on tour worldwide.  For information about Murray SawChuck celebrity magician, see him at the Sin City Theater, Planet Hollywood, 4 pm, SUN, MON, THURS. & SAT.

The Family Music Center has so many possibilities.

Looking for fun places to go where you can meet people and have a great time? 

An attractive patio leads into the store with each room specializing in a different musical instrument. Whatever you want, it is probably in one of the rooms.

During the tour of the center, I stopped to watch their organ class and it was obvious they were enjoying themselves. The teacher made learning to play the organ fun. The feeling continued at their get together afterwards with snacks and soft drinks for everyone.

Jim Mason, the owner, explained, “It is almost like a social club tied to music.  That’s the way to do it. We introduced so many people to music over the years and developed the love of music and friendship outside music.”

Maybe romance!

Jim is proud of their lessons. “The ages range from 4 up to 85 years old. Everybody loves music, it is universal. Whether they are rich or poor, young or old, music transcends everything. Some people have no experience they cannot play a single note and you should see their progress. They have over 50 teachers providing from 6-8,000 private and group lessons every month on organs, pianos, guitars, violins, and all types of instruments. With the American Idol, America’s Got Talent, and all of the other shows, young budding stars can get that clarinet or trombone and take lessons. Our store has the largest private lesson program in Nevada.

I saw a unique Steinway Square Grand piano which is now obsolete,  (Continued)

“The Mob is Returning to Las Vegas”

My invitation to the press event offered a peak at a new exhibit

“The Las Vegas Mob Experience” which is open at the

Tropicana Hotel.

I interviewed Jay

Bloom, Managing

Partner of Murder,

Inc., with

Eagle Group

Holdings.  Jay

explained, “The

boys are coming back to town.

Our Mob Experience is unprecedented because there

has never been anything like it before.

We have the mobster’s relatives who are going to tell a lot of their

secrets.

(Vincent Spilatro, Nancy Spilatro, Meyer Lansky II, Cynthia Duncan, Antoinette Giananna, Janice Honicutt, Millicent Rosen.) (Photo: SZ)

A number of these

families are very

private and have

not

talked

to the press.

There is Millicent

Rosen (daughter of

Benjamin

“Bugsy” Siegel),

Meyer Lansky, II (grandson of Meyer Lansky),

Cynthia Duncan (granddaughter of Meyer Lansky), Antoinette

Giancana (daughter of Sam Giancana), Nancy Spilotro (wife of

Tony Spilotro), Vincent Spilotro (son of Anthony Spilotro), and

Janice Sachs (wife of Allan Sachs).

These mob families see this as an opportunity to contribute their

voice and tell the story truthfully and accurately.

In doing that, the families provided us with unfettered access to

the largest collection ever assembled of authentic personal items,

memorabilia, photos, videos, and artifacts stored in their attics

Jay Bloom (Las Vegas Mob Experience, Murder, Inc.) & Meyer Lansky II (Photo: Murder, Inc.)

The public can

experience the world of

organized crime, learn

about the role its major

players had on the

building of Las Vegas.

You can see Meyer

Lansky’s 200-page

hand-written diary that has

jaw dropping entries in it.

We have “Bugsy” Siegel’s home movies taken in the back yard

with his daughter.

Tony Spilotro’s home

movies show him dressed as Santa Claus giving presents to his

kids.  There are even some pictures at Disneyland on the Jungle

Cruise and with Donald Duck.  Just like a regular person, but

some were vicious killers who were loving fathers and loving

husbands.
