Golden Nugget Las Vegas is proud to announce Frankie Moreno as the luxury resort’s resident headliner through August 2017. Following the strong opening of his six-show limited engagement on Thursday, March 2, the property quickly locked Moreno in to perform at The Showroom weekly Thursdays and Saturdays.
“Frankie Moreno is a truly remarkable talent that we’re excited to welcome as our resident headliner,” said Senior Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer Rikki Tanenbaum. “The high energy and musical prowess that have made him a staple in the Las Vegas entertainment landscape can now be seen weekly at Golden Nugget Las Vegas.”
Moreno’s show features the talent of Tony Moreno (bass), Alec Zeilon (guitar), Mike Zerbe (drums), Rob Lyons (guitar), Fabricio Bezerra (saxophone), Pete Bresciani (trumpet), Jim D’Arrigo (baritone saxophone), Crystal Robinson (vocals), Ashley Kellough (vocals), and Markevius Faulkner (vocals).
For Moreno, the move seemed to be in the stars: “When we started performing in Las Vegas nearly 15 years ago, one of the early gigs I booked was in the Rush Lounge at Golden Nugget. There was this indescribable but palpable energy performing there. To return as the resident headliner seems somehow cosmic and feels electrifying.”
A night of enjoying Moreno’s unparalleled fusion of old-school soul with modern rock and roll does not end at curtain call. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to follow the musician to a Rat Pack-style after party at an undisclosed location on property to be announced at the end of each performance. Among the libations that will flow is the “Frankie More-tini,” a play on the traditional Cosmopolitan that Golden Nugget has dedicated to Moreno.
The artist, who made his national debut at the age of 10 on “Star Search,” has toured and written songs for audiences around the world. His eponymous debut album achieved nationwide success following a rousing rendition of the self-penned single “Tangerine Honey” on “Dancing with the Stars.”
Moreno recently released his latest album, “One Night Only.” He has performed sold-out concerts at esteemed venues including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, and The Hollywood Bowl, and recorded a PBS special, “Frankie Moreno in Concert.” In addition to racking up accolades in Las Vegas including “Best All-Around Performer” (Las Vegas Review-Journal) and “Best Strip Headliner” (Las Vegas Weekly), Moreno garnered an Emmy nomination for his nationally televised special, “Songs at Home.”
Frankie Moreno will perform Thursday, March 16 and Thursday, March 23, before kicking off his extended residency in April, when he can be seen weekly Thursdays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. in The Showroom at Golden Nugget Las Vegas through August.
