To kick off its new time slot, the June 1 show will feature appearances by many local Strip veteran entertainers. The lineup includes Clint Holmes, Kelly Clinton, Doug Starks (host of the Suncoast Showroom’s “Las Vegas Has Talent”), Scotty Allen (DJ at 97.1 – The Point), Paul Draper (“Mysteries of the Mind”), Chris Randall of “Scandal Magic” and more.
