Trumpeter and Vocalist Brian Newman Returns to

NoMad Las Vegas for Late-Night Show

 

12 Dates Added in April and May; Tickets on Sale Now

Trumpeter and singer Brian Newman will bring his late-night show, Brian Newman: AFTER DARK, back to NoMad Las Vegas, the luxury resort experience located within Park MGM, for 12 dates in 2020.

 

Show Dates: 

April 30

May 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16

 

Currently serving as the bandleader for the LADY GAGA JAZZ & PIANO resident show at Park Theater, Newman has created Brian Newman: AFTER DARK as an ode to vintage Las Vegas, providing guests a late-night rendezvous filled with great music, good friends and craft cocktails. Intimate evenings are filled with special guest performers from New York City, Las Vegas and beyond. Past guests have included  Lady Gaga, Ashanti, Jaclyn McSpadden of Postmodern Jukebox and Puddles Pity Party, among many others. Burlesque star and award-winning entertainer Angie Pontani is scheduled to perform with Newman April 30 – May 10.

 

Tickets starting at $65 including fees are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets or online at ticketmaster.com. Shows are scheduled to begin at 11 p.m. with the exception of performances on May 3, 7, 10 and 16 which are scheduled to begin at 11:30 p.m. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

 

Brian Newman: AFTER DARK has been described by the Las Vegas Review-Journal as “a next-level cool hangout,” and according to Billboard Magazine, the unique show “reimagines the classic Las Vegas lounge show.” 

 

Newman has made a name for himself as a consummate entertainer on the New York City club circuit in recent years with extended engagements at The Oak Room, Birdland, The McKittrick Hotel and The Rose Bar. His recently released debut album SHOWBOAT proves that jazz isn’t what it used to be. The album provides Newman with the opportunity to break the art form out of its constraints, allowing the jazz influences of Miles Davis and Chet Baker to find room with his love of rock bands such as Nirvana, Beck and Thin Lizzy.

 

Newman recently co-produced the soundtrack version of “La Vie En Rose” for the film “A Star Is Born” with Lady Gaga and was her bandleader and trumpeter for the Cheek to Cheek project with Tony Bennett. Both albums debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart. They originally met in the downtown New York City club scene where Newman was a bartender and they discovered their shared love for jazz and tattoos (the two share the same tattoo on their right arms of Miles Davis’ trumpet taken from a sketch done by Tony Bennett).

 

Hailing from Cleveland, Newman played trumpet for his local high school jazz band, and honed his skills listening to his musical influences. He attended the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music but decided to end his formal training and move to New York City in 2003. During that time, he hustled for club gigs, recorded on hip-hop sessions and tended bar. His exposure to the music scene expanded and he landed a regular gig at Plaza Hotel’s famed Oak Room where Stefani Germanotta first heard him perform. Their friendship led to Brian’s involvement in the Cheek to Cheek project and the global world tour. His engaging stage persona, musical chops, suave suits and jazz/rock communion has created a unique sound and sensibility.

VEGAS SUPERKARTS LAUNCHES VSK LEAGUE – A MONTHLY GO-KART CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

Open to every level of driver age 15 and older, the VSK League hosts races on the last Sunday of every month. The first race in this series is Sunday, Jan. 26, at 8:30 a.m.

VSK League racers earn points toward the Sodi World Series (SWS), the international ranking of the top Sodi rental kart drivers in the world. The SWS represents the largest worldwide go-kart ranking system and the VSK League offers the only participating competition in Las Vegas. The more races drivers enter, the more points they can accumulate toward qualifying for the Sodi World Finals in Dubai.

VSK League drivers compete in three 8-minute races to win points and increase their rankings on the championship leaderboard. Each race concludes with a podium ceremony complete with trophies for the top three racers. Drivers can check their rankings of the SWS website and compare their records with friends and drivers from all over the world.

Drivers must create a free profile on the Sodi World Series website to participate in the VSK League. The $90 fee per race includes registration in one of two weight classes: under 180 pounds or over 180 pounds. The addition of ballast weight is permitted but not provided. If fewer than eight drivers have signed up for each race by the Tuesday before the event, the race is subject to cancellation. Drivers must provide full payment by credit card by calling (702) 405-7223. Unpaid drivers will be removed from the race registration.

Wednesday is the first meeting of the season between in-state rivals UNLV and UNR and the first game for the two in the Silver State Series, the all-sports competition between the two schools sponsored by IBEW and Nevada Donor Network, as the teams will tip-off in Mountain West women’s basketball action at 6 pm in the Cox Pavilion.

 

It’s also a Code Red game for the Lady Rebels, and all fans are encouraged to wear Red, while the first 100 fans will receive a free red light-up stick. Tickets for UNLV women’s basketball are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and staff, while kids 17 and under are free at UNLV Lady Rebel contests. Tickets are also $3 off if bought online at UNLVRebels.com by the night before the game.

Ben Wilson and Amie Callaway will provide the call, while Wyatt Tomchek (play-by-play) and Kevaney Martin (color analyst) will handle the radio broadcast, also on UNLVRebels.com.

 

UNLV Game Notes

♦  The Lady Rebels look to continue their hot streak as they have won six of their last seven games and currently stand in fourth in the Mountain West at 5-2, just half a game behind Boise State (6-2), who is idle on Wednesday.
♦  The two teams actually have identical overall records, but opposite league marks as UNR is 2-5 in the MW, and are looking for its first road win since Nov. 16. The Wolf Pack have struggled away from Reno this season, having dropped their past three road games by an average of 14.3 ppg.
♦ UNLV is 20-1 all-time against UNR in Las Vegas, and 20-0 in regular season action.
♦ The Lady Rebels currently rank at the top of the MW (conference play only) in several defensive categories including scoring defense, field goal defense and rebound margin.
♦ UNLV is 31-8 in league play at home (27-8 in the Cox Pavilion, 4-0 in the Thomas & Mack Center) over the past five seasons. That includes this year’s 2-1 mark.
♦  The 2019-20 UNLV Lady Rebel squad are one of the youngest and least experienced teams in the Mountain West this season after graduating four senior starters. UNLV has 10 underclassmen on this year’s squad, with seven freshmen and three sophomores, while the four-member senior class had a total of two career starts (as a Lady Rebel) entering the season.
