Terry Fator’s Latest Personality

April 28th, 2011 • by Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos: Mirage)

“America’s Got Talent” winner Terry Fator has created a special

personality for each of his character puppets and like “real

people”, the puppets have their own background stories.


Just before Terry brings out each puppet, he provides a peek into

its imaginary life to prepare us for their grand entrance as his

co-stars with special segues when the puppet is ready to be

dramatically carried off the stage.

Terry has the remarkable ability to quickly become each of these

lovable characters as we get to know them better.

With 9 different character puppets, hopefully Terry doesn’t

suddenly wake up at night trying to remember, “Who am I?”

If Terry can keep all of his personalities in order, he has just

added number 10, a new character puppet called Berry Fabulous

to celebrate his second anniversary at the Mirage Resort.

Berry Fabulous is outrageous and seems to rate a special

entrance as he is brought on stage inside a walk-in wardrobe closet.  Terry Fator’s puppets are each very unique.


Backstage with Claire Sinclair-Playboy’s Playmate

March 26th, 2011 • by Sandy Zimmerman

“Backstage with Claire Sinclair”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman backstage after the show except the poster by Playboy.)

The MGM Grand’s intimate “Crazy Horse Paris” French spectacular revue

has been thrilling Las Vegas audiences since 2001.

When they added Claire Sinclair to the mix, Claire brought her blazing

sensuality blended with a classic beauty. Clair’s performance added a touch

of innocence to her act as she moved around the show’s famous signature Red Lip-shaped “Dali

Couch” and suddenly transformed herself like a firecracker exploding.

It was like a “Dance of Love”!

Claire won Playboy’s 2010 “October Playmate of the Month” and it seemed as though the world

opened up to her.

She made her first solo appearance as guest star in “Crazy Horse Paris”, last October,

again during the year, and is now returning April 20-27.

After the show, I met Claire in the backstage lounge.

Even though Claire was just wearing a long red robe, she really looked great.

Clair spoke about her act, “This was my first time on stage and

I have never danced professionally before in my life, or been on a stage for anything.

It was pretty intense for a first time thing.”

I asked, “How long did you have to train for your solo number?  Clair answered,

“About one-and-a-half weeks.” This was amazing because she had

never taken dance lessons and still had the ability to capture the “feeling” of passion in her

movements on and around the lip-shaped couch.


Las Vegas Tenors: Beyond Expectations

November 25th, 2010 • by Sandy Zimmerman

“The Las Vegas Tenors: Beyond Expectations”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman during the show.)

Most people have heard of The Three Tenors, the operatic greats

Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, and Jose Carreras then there

are many groups calling themselves by variations of the name

“Tenors”.  Walking into the Suncoast Hotel’s new showroom, of

course I knew The Las Vegas Tenors would sing arias from some of

the famous operas but there was so much more.

How can you please audiences filled with people who have

different musical tastes?

The Las Vegas Tenors created the perfect

formula.  Their extensive repertory is surprisingly all-embracing

several styles of music with something for everyone. 

It is a

celebration

of the

best music

from the past

and present.

The

three tenors

agreed,

“We love music

and more than

anything

music is

our passion.

It is what we do and the Suncoast is a great place

to do it.

We sing a lot of different styles of music

because we know we cannot come here and just do all classical or

all Broadway and make everyone happy.

We cannot do jazz and swing all night and make everyone happy.

We cannot come out here and do rap and make anybody happy.

Each of the Las Vegas Tenors have their own style and combined

they work well together.

Bill Fayne was a classically trained singer who loves Opera and

Broadway.

Bobby Black leaned toward Bon Jovi, Garth Brooks, and R&B as wel

l as the classics.

Teddy Davey had experience in the theater singing pop and

classical Italian songs.

With their dramatic opening of Giuseppe Verdi’s “La Donna e

Mobile”, from Rigoletto, the Las Vegas Tenors showed their wide

vocal range and immediately made fans of the audience.

The men alternated their numbers with quick switches from one

musical style to another.

Their Broadway segment featured Les Miserable’s stirring “Bring

Him Home”, and then composer Stephen Sondheim’s music from

the “Demon Barber of Fleet Street” was a great change of pace.

They joked that it was a lively family musical almost like opera.

Bill Fayne felt, “My Boy Bill”, from Carousel, was one of the most

important songs in musical history.”

Billy Bigalow, a carousel barker, was told he is going to have a baby

and didn’t know how to handle the news.

It was sung with emotion because this was a changing

point in his life.

During one stand-out number, the overture from the 1950 “Guys

and Dolls”, -“Horse Right Here”, each man took turns to interpret

the song.

The trio also sang a sequence of what they called “Popera”, the

blending of the styles of classical music and opera with “pop” or

popular music to make it more contemporary.

It becomes a classical-crossover sound.

The Suncoast always offers great entertainment.

Try their Lounge’s great new dance floor, for live entertainment

with NO COVER, NO MINIMUM.

Vintage Las Vegas Supper Club

“Vintage Las Vegas Supper Club”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman)

I have always enjoyed seeing Wes Winters from the first time at

the Suncoast Showroom

performing

his Tribute to Liberace

show, during brunch at the Envy

Restaurant, and now opening at

Wes Winters’ 88 Key Supper Club

in Sam’s Town.

 

 

We spoke before his show, “I take requests.

I want people to dance so I do a lot of dance music of the 40’s, 50’s

and 60’s, and some Liberace music.

I brought my 9’

concert Tuxedo

grand

piano here for the

show.

 

 

There is only one like it, I have to quote

Liberace, ‘And I’ve got it.’ ” He did a quick impression of Liberace.

That is quite a piano decorated with mirrors, crystals

and trimmed with chrome.  “I am very proud of the piano, it

sounds beautiful.”

Wes always performs

Liberace’s favorites

but there is more.

He says, “I play

myself.”

Wes includes Frank

 

Sinatra, Dean Martin, and will play anything

anybody wants to hear.

He showed his exceptional abilities at the

piano, along with complex numbers we were treated to “I’ve got

You Under My Skin”, “It’s Now or Never”, “Dream Lover”, “It Had

to be You”, “All the Way”, “Unforgettable”, “What a Wonderful

World”, “Pretty Woman”, “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head”, and

many more.

The 88 Key Club is modeled after the supper clubs reminiscent of

old Las Vegas with great entertainment, delicious food, and

dancing, all at NO COVER, NO MINIMUM.

Wes stands out in his flashy sparkling clothes, attractive versions

of the styles Liberace would have liked.  He announced, “We are

going to eat, dance, party and have a good time.”

Leo Kessler

Everyone is excited about Wes’ new supper club.  I had the

chance to interview Leo Kessler, Regional Director of Food &

Beverage for Sam’s Town, the Eldorado and Joker’s Wild. He feels,

“Wes is absolutely amazing because he brings so much life,

something new to the hotel.

We are always searching for things for people to

enjoy.

He is a wonderful artist, I have met many artists in my life

and he is such a charm to work with.

We love him here.

Our concept is to be consistently good, friendly, and build

relations.  It is all part of the Boyd culture of relationship

building, providing good service and a good product.”


Cheap Trick Recreates Sgt. Pepper Live

It was as though the Paris Hotel threw a party and the Beatles were there!  “Sgt Pepper Live” featuring Cheap Trick brought their own uncanny interpretation of the Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper” album.
