Years of ranch work and rodeo competitions have certainly influenced Oscar-winning singer/songwriter Ryan Bingham, who brought his bluesy, rock n’ roll tunes to the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan last night (Thursday, June 13). Bingham’s road-weary sound drove the crowd wild, with notable performances of “Southside of Heaven,” and “The Weary Kind,” Bingham’s Oscar-winning single from the Jeff Bridges film, Crazy Heart.
As the sun sets over The Strip each Thursday night, the Boulevard Pool deck comes to life with the energy of Las Vegas during the Set Your Life to Music series. From the aroma of the outdoor grills to the sounds of hand-crafted cocktails being stirred, guests can revel in the spirit of music at the intimate outdoor venue. Doors open at 7 p.m. with celebrated DJ Mike Attack spinning before headliners take the stage at 9 p.m.
