Las Vegas Strip Headliners Come Together for One Special Performance for NF Hope

Las Vegas Strip Headliners Come Together for One Special Performance for NF Hope

Frankie Moreno, Human Nature, Cast members from ABSINTHE, JERSEY BOYS & more perform at Third Annual NF Hope Concert Oct. 20 at The Venetian

On Sunday, Oct. 20, The Strip’s most engaging headliners will shine their star power on the fight against Neurofibromatosis at the Third Annual NF Hope Concert.   Performers from across The Strip’s stages will come together at The Venetian Showroom for a one-day-only performance benefitting the NF Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to families and individuals with neurofibromatosis, more commonly known as NF. A portion of the proceeds will also go to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NVCCF) in their support of local families touched by NF. The Third Annual NF Hope Concert will feature performances by some of the biggest names in Las Vegas as well as an impressive silent auction. Tickets are on sale now and prices start at $45. They are available by calling any Venetian/Palazzo box office at 702-414-9000, or online at www.Venetian.com.

The star-studded concert will include performances by Frankie Moreno, Human Nature, Clint Holmes and Kelly Clinton, ABSINTHE’s “Green Fairy” Melody Sweets, cast members from JERSEY BOYS, ROCK OF AGES, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET and many more.  Joey Dowling from FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” will present a piece created for the Troupe, a local dance competition team.  There will also be special performances by two talented performers living with NF.  This year’s silent auction items include tickets to Celine Dion, Shania Twain, JERSEY BOYS, ROCK OF AGES, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, show memorabilia, restaurant certificates, spa certificates and much more.

The concert, produced by JERSEY BOYS star Jeff Leibow with Neil Miller and Pat Caddick as consulting producers from The Chimaera Group, is inspired by Leibow’s daughter Emma, who was diagnosed with NF at the age of nine months. NF is a genetic disorder of the nervous system that results in a mutation on a gene that normally suppresses tumor growth. This allows for tumors to grow on any nerve in the body without warning. Leibow and his wife Melody conceived the idea for the concert upon the realization that they had an obligation to their family and the 100,000 people living with NF to educate more people about the disorder.

“Despite all our prayers and wishes that Emma might stay untouched by this disorder, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor in January.  It is a horrible, frightening thing to hear about your child, but our fears have only fueled our wish to do everything we can to make a difference in the fight against NF,” said Leibow.

NF is one of the most common genetic disorders and affects more than 100,000 Americans, making it more common than cystic fibrosis, hereditary muscular dystrophy, Huntington’s disease and Tay Sachs combined. Despite its commonality, the disorder struggles to get federal support every year.

“Since 1996, advocacy has provided most of the research money for neurofibromatosis, and we are doing everything we can to keep that going.  Since its inception in 2011, NF Hope has raised nearly $50,000 for NF Network, a national non-profit dedicated to helping individuals with neurofibromatosis.  It is still our dream to see NF Hope become a national organization producing concerts all over the US.  For now we are focused on continuing to make this concert a staple in Las Vegas with the hope of making a difference in Emma’s life and the lives of the more than 100,000 people living with NF in the US alone,” Leibow added.

The Third Annual NF Hope Concert will take place on Sunday, Oct. 20 at the Sands Showroom at The Venetian Las Vegas. The show begins at 1 p.m., and the lobby will open at 11:45 a.m. for the silent auction.  Ticket prices range from $45 – $60 plus tax and service charges. To purchase tickets, call the Venetian/Palazzo Box Office at 702-414-9000 or visit www.Venetian.com.

Life is Beautiful Festival Announces Interactive Art Programming Complete with Theatrical, Visual and Street Art Projects

life is beautiful

Life is Beautiful Festival Announces Interactive Art Programming
Complete with Theatrical, Visual and Street Art Projects

Headlining performance artists Cirque du Soleil, “Absinthe”, Human Nature, Jabbawockeez,
“Million Dollar Quartet”, Recycled Percussion and “Rock of Ages” to take the stage

Street and traditional artists to erect murals and other immersive artistic endeavors

Life is Beautiful (L.I.B.) unveils its art programming for the inaugural festival taking place Saturday, October 26 and Sunday, October 27, 2013. Designed to be seamlessly programmed with the music, food and learning festival elements, L.I.B’s art presentations will center around live performance, and several mediums of visual art with the festival grounds as its canvas.

“Our goal is to create a live urban gallery that is essentially woven into our festival footprint. We want to expose our festival-goers to many types of dynamic artistic mediums,” stated festival co-founder Rehan Choudhry. “We are fortunate that Las Vegas is home to many of the world’s greatest performance artists, and inspires much of the world’s great visual art. We are infusing those stunning influences into our festival experience.”

The festival’s art program is comprised of three separate initiatives, bringing artists out of their traditional studios, galleries or theaters and into the streets of Downtown Las Vegas. With an up-close-and-personal feel, L.I.B.’s art program is meant to surround guests with both elusive and interactive activations.

RISE ABOVE: A Street Art Program
The urban surroundings of the Life is Beautiful venue provide a perfect backdrop for what will be an  eclectic and permanent street art program that will redefine the look of Downtown Las Vegas for years to come. Curated by Charlotte Dutoit, RISE ABOVE will turn Downtown Las Vegas into an art-inspired playground showcasing works by some of the biggest names in international street art. Contributing artists include: Vhils (Portugal), D*Face (UK), Alexis Diaz (AKA La Pandilla from Puerto Rico), Interesni Kazki (Ukrane), Zio Ziegler (San Francisco), Ana Maria (Houston) and Aware (Las Vegas). Creation of these original pieces, which include murals, stencils by The Stencil Network (NYC) and giant show posters by Bicicleta Sem Freio (Brazil), will begin the week prior to the festival and be completed live on site.

The Odyssey: A Visual Art Experience
A first-class visual art program, curated by Patrick Duffy, former president of the Las Vegas Art Museum and current executive board member for Smith Center for the Performing Arts, will also be presented at L.I.B. His program, entitled The Odyssey, is a visual exploration of the art that inspires creativity in all of us, no matter age, education or upbringing. Presented through staged exhibits at varying venues, The Odyssey will show work from the Opportunity Village Art and Enrichment Program, Eric Tillinghast, William T. Wiley, Wendy Kveck, Catherine Borg, Yasmina and Javier Sanchez, Adam Morey, and Jaime Sholnick.

At the helm of the fine art programming is a multi-media presentation of “13 Most Beautiful…Songs for Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests” featuring Dean and Britta. A project commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, “13 Most Beautiful” is a live multimedia performance featuring large scale video projection of Warhol’s Screen Tests (4-minute silent film portraits of visitors to his studio), set to the music of Dean and Britta and their band, who perform live on stage while the films are projected above.

“For many years ‘art’ has been synonymous with Downtown Las Vegas,” says L.I.B. partner and First Friday managing partner Joey Vanas. “What Life is Beautiful intends to do during our festival weekend and beyond is bring national and international attention to our local artists and further the growth of Downtown Las Vegas as a serious art community.”

Theatrical Performances
Festival attendees will see why Las Vegas is the Entertainment Capital of the World through performances from renowned Strip productions that will vacate their theaters and permeate the streets of Downtown. Featured acts include six shows by Cirque du Soliel, “Absinthe”, Human Nature, “Jabbawockeez”, “Million Dollar Quartet”, Recycled Percussion and “Rock of Ages”.

HUMAN NATURE SET FOR A NIGHT OF MOTOWN MAGIC AS LIVING LEGENDS COME TOGETHER TO TAKE IN SPECIAL PERFORMANCE

Music icons Mary Wilson, Otis Williams and Duke Fakir will attend the May 30 show

  

Human Nature is gearing up for a historic night of Motown magic as they prepare to perform for legendary artists Mary Wilson (The Supremes), Otis Williams (The Temptations) and Duke Fakir (The Four Tops). The musicians whose music inspired the Australian quartet’s Motown show will be in attendance Thursday, May 30 for Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show at The Venetian Las Vegas.

For one special night, audience members are invited to be seated among the Motown royalty who inspired Human Nature’s acclaimed show, produced by SPI Entertainment.

Formed in 1989 when brothers Andrew and Michael Tierney teamed up with schoolmates Toby Allen and Phil Burton to represent their local high school in a combined regional schools concert, Human Nature then called themselves The Four Trax, a nod to Duke Fakir’s The Four Tops.

After changing their name to Human Nature, the soulful singers went on to release nine albums, five of which went to #1 in their native continent, selling millions of records world-wide and garnering 23 platinum awards, 70 Top 40 hits and five Top 10 hits. Their chart-topping Motown tribute, Reach Out, went five-times-platinum, attracting the attention of famed songwriter Smokey Robinson, who recorded “Get Ready” with them and ultimately became a presenter of their Motown show in Las Vegas.

The group toured nationally in the U.S. in 2012, scored a #1 position on the Motown Charts and released their latest Motown CD and DVD following their PBS TV special in 2011.

Smokey Robinson Presents Human Nature: The Motown Show performs nightly Thursday – Monday (dark Tuesday, Wednesday) at 7p.m. Ticket prices are set at Reserved $59.95, Preferred $79.95 and VIP $99.95 (plus tax and handling fee – VIP ticket price also includes a commemorative CD). Tickets can be purchased at The Venetian Box Office, by visiting www.Venetian.com or by calling (702) 414-9000.
