John Zito’s slide and dobro guitars give the band its unique sound, with the virtuosity of Jimi Hendrix and the soul of Johnny Winter. John Zito has a trio called John Zito Band who has a new record available now called “Lonely, Broke & Wasted”. Stoney Curtis’ trio has toured the U.S. and internationally for over 10 years. He is signed to Shrapnel Records with 4 internationally released albums, with a soon to be released record called “Halo of Dark Matter”. Zito and Curtis’ leads compliment each other while having a mesmerizing effect on the audience. Pauly D’s unique style brings a high energy persona to the band.

The entire band has been featured on Counting Cars and can be seen on History channel’s exclusive web series Counting Cars After Hours. This killer combination seals the solid backbone of the band and gives them a nostalgic 70’s vibe. They have a strong arsenal of originals and obscure 70’s cover songs. Count’s 77 has recently been signed to Schrapnel Records and will be recording their new record at Count’s Desert Moon Productions in early November 2013. Look for an exciting tour coming soon!

Ring in the Year of the Snake with Celebratory Dances, Authentic Cuisine and Vibrant Displays at Las Vegas’ Premier Resorts

MGM Resorts International celebrates Chinese New Year 2013, the Year of the Snake, with a prestigious culinary event, exhilarating lion dances, spectacular displays at Bellagio and Crystals at CityCenter, and authentic cuisine at a variety of restaurants.

The sixth animal in the Asian zodiac is the cunning and intuitive snake; the most refined and collected of all the animals. Individuals born in the Year of the Snake tend to be intelligent, ambitious and graceful.

Diaoyutai State Guesthouse
Bellagio will welcome the prestigious Diaoyutai State Guesthouse to the United States for only the second time. Typically reserved for royalty, heads of state and other world leaders, Diaoyutai State Guesthouse of Beijing will host a series of exclusive dinners within Tuscany Kitchen Thursday, Feb. 14 – Saturday, Feb. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

The lavish dinner offers an eight-course menu featuring a collection of historic dishes modernized from ancient menus. It will be prepared and served by the Diaoyutai culinary team, dressed in traditional Chinese attire and led by Executive Chef Hao Baoli, who has hosted more than 1,000 world leaders in his decades at the Guesthouse.

With more than 30 years leading the Diaoyutai culinary team, Chef Baoli specializes in cuisine that is both healthy and delicious. His menu at Bellagio will feature a diverse selection of dishes showcasing rare ingredients and skillful techniques while also following strict nutritional requirements, ensuring all items are low in both sugar and sodium and high in protein.

Celebratory décor will complement the elegance of Bellagio with Chinese tradition to create an ideal setting in which to enjoy this special cuisine. Tableware will be shipped from Beijing to Bellagio specifically for the event, capturing the essence and spirit of the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in breathtaking form.

Tickets for this rare culinary event are $500 per person, all-inclusive, and are available online at Bellagio’s Epicurean Epicenter webpage or by calling Bellagio Concierge at 866-406-7117.

Lion Dances
Dynamic and colorful lion dances will commemorate the Year of the Snake at Bellagio, ARIA, Crystals at CityCenter and MGM Grand:

  • ARIA – Monday, Feb. 11 at 1 p.m. at the main porte cochere
  • Crystals – Monday, Feb. 11 at 1:30 p.m. at the entrance near Todd English P.U.B.

Yau Kung Moon will perform the traditional Chinese lion dances at Bellagio, ARIA, Crystals and MGM Grand. Yau Kung Moon, which translates to “Style of Flexible Power,” is considered one of the most-respected martial arts, dragon and lion dance organizations in the world.  It is a traditional Southern Shaolin Kung Fu system with more than 1,000 years of history.

Within the lion dancing culture, Yau Kung Moon is considered one of the pioneers of Northern and Southern lion dancing (Nam Si Buk Mo) and has set an exceptionally high standard evidenced by its numerous competitions and performances.  Yau Kung Moon is known for its trademark gold uniforms and innovative routines and has been recognized internationally for being the first U.S. team to compete in the 1990 Invitational World Lion Dance Festival in Malaysia.  The group also has finished as the 10-time undefeated Chinese National Lion Dance Champions.

Crystals at CityCenter
Beginning Friday, Jan. 25, the Flower Carpet on the first floor of Crystals at CityCenter will be decorated with a 21-foot-tall hand-crafted snake. The snake will be nestled among a grove of 40-foot-tall bamboo along with exotic orchids, bromeliads and bonsai trees. More than 300 handmade red silk lanterns will adorn the ceilings throughout Crystals.

Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens ushers in the Year of the Snake with a complimentary display through March 3.  The design of the Conservatory’s tranquil temple is guided by the ancient practice of Feng Shui – the art of using surroundings to attract harmony, balance and positive life energy. Each garden within the Chinese New Year display encompasses water, ensuring a positive flow of energy; and the three friends of winter – pine, bamboo and plum, symbolizing perseverance, integrity and modesty, respectively.

At the entrance of the Conservatory, an 18-foot-tall custom-made Chinese money tree symbolizes prosperity, good fortune and nobility. The bold centerpiece flourishes with 384 oversized gold-leafed coins on its branches as mounds of I-Ching coins, a traditional Chinese symbol for money, surround the base of the lucky tree.

Nearby, a nine-foot-tall friendly King Cobra snake covered in 5,000 blue and yellow luminescent scales is perched atop a mound of gold coins, protecting wealth and good fortune for the upcoming year.

Enhancing the vibrant Conservatory setting with the sounds of celebration, the Las Vegas-based Beijing Trio performs traditional folk and pop music with authentic Chinese instruments daily from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m.

The Eagles’ Don Felder to perform at the Pearl October 20

DON FELDER

TO PERFORM AT THE PEARL AT PALMS CASINO RESORT

October 20, 2012, 8 p.m.

Tickets On Sale – Friday, July 20 at noon

To purchase tickets, please visit the Pearl Box Office, call 702-944-3200, visit any Ticketmaster location, call 1-800-745-3000 or visit www.ticketmaster.com

 

Legendary guitarist and performer, and former member of The Eagles, Don Felder, to perform at the Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on October 20, 2012 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $34, plus any additional service fees.

Felder is most known as the former lead guitarist of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. The band’s record-setting compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) sold more than 29 million copies in the U.S. alone and was awarded by the RIAA the top-selling album of the 20th Century. A member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1998, Felder served as a key member of The Eagles for 27 years, putting his mark on numerous Eagles milestones. Felder originated and co-wrote The Eagles’ biggest hit – the iconic, Grammy-studded smash “Hotel California” – along with fan favorites like “Victim of Love” and “Those Shoes.” He became immediately celebrated for his lyrical, signature guitar work on legendary songs like “Life in the Fast Lane,” “One of These Nights,” “New Kid In Town,” and numerous more.

After leaving the group in 2001, Felder also became a New York Times bestselling author when his riveting confessional memoir Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles proved a major commercial triumph upon publication in 2008.

Growing up in the Gainesville, FL local music scene, Don Felder would incongruously encounter a number of the greatest talents that would go on to change rock and roll history. In high school, he formed a band with a young Stephen Stills; Felder also gave guitar lessons to a teenaged Tom Petty at the local music store, and The Allman Brothers were also local pals.

Florida is also where a young Felder would first meet Bernie Leadon, a founding member of The Eagles who would be instrumental in bringing his childhood friend into the band. In fact, it was Leadon who encouraged him to come out to Los Angeles, where Felder found himself working both with The Eagles and in both sessions and live performances for numerous music legends spanning the musical spectrum: The Bee Gees, Bob Seger, Michael Jackson, Alice Cooper, Kenny Loggins, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Boz Scaggs, Warren Zevon, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Vince Gill, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Paul Simon, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand – and even and old friend, Steven Stills.

Putting all the tumult and glory he’d experienced to that point into perspective gave new urgency to the creation of Road to Forever – only Felder’s second solo effort in a storied, four-decade-plus sojourn through rock history. Road to Forever represents the culmination of a personal journey of introspection that Felder began over ten years ago. In 2001, he suffered an emotionally-devastating double blow – separating acrimoniously from The Eagles for the last time while facing the end of his first marriage, which had lasted 29 years and produced four children. To heal, Felder began writing down as many memories as he could, putting his past in perspective. Finding these musings compelling, Felder was inspired to write a book. That introspection inspired him to write out the stories of his life as songs.

Doors at the Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days. The Pearl is now on Twitter. Follow @PearlatPalms for concert announcements and event information.

MILLENNIUM EVENTS, INC. IN ASSOCIATION WITH WEALTHTV

PRESENTS WORLD CLASS CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING

‘WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE’

AT THE PEARL AT PALMS CASINO RESORT

Main bout features former World Champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine vs. former WBO and IBA Light Middleweight Champion Bronco “Superman” McKart

Millennium Events, Inc., in association with Wealth TV, proudly presents ‘When Worlds Collide’ – World Class Championship boxing. The bouts are scheduled to take place July 14, 2012 at 6 p.m. inside the award-winning Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The prestigious event promises to deliver outstandingly exhilarating match-ups to the fans and millions of television viewers worldwide as it will feature some of the world’s premium boxers of our era competing at their best.

In the main event, the former two-time World Champion Anthony “The Man” Mundine (43-4-0) will take on former WBO and IBA Light Middleweight Champion, Bronco “Superman” McKart (54-9-1) in a ten round bout. In the clash of “The Man” vs. “Superman” the winner will surely be rewarded with another opportunity to fight for a World Title or a huge marquee fight in the next outing. Despite enjoying the status as the most popular and recognized Australian boxer today, this will be Mundine’s first USA appearance as he endeavors to win over American fans with his debut performance. However, there will be no shortage of support from his loyal fans at ringside, possibly even from his celebrity fans ready to cheer their hero to a win on American soil.

Hailing from Sydney, Down Under Anthony “The Man” Mundine has bravely called out to boxing’s elite names, including Floyd Mayweather, and the rest of the highly rated Champions. He believes that coming to Mayweather’s back yard and producing an impressive win is exactly what he needs to deserve the right for a mega fight with Mayweather.

Bronco “Superman” McKart on the other hand is determined and hungry to fulfill his dream of winning a third World Title honor. He is coming off of three solid wins and feels ready for whatever Mundine has to offer. Without a doubt, there will be fireworks when these two athletes collide.

In the co-main feature, Russia’s best light heavyweight boxer, WBO International Champion, WBO #1 and IBF#5 rated Dmitry Sukhotsky will be making his USA debut against the dangerous Cornelius “Da Beast” White (19-1-0) from Houston, Texas for the IBF International Light-Heavyweight Title in a twelve round bout. Russia vs. USA, knock out artist vs. big puncher – this bout promises to have all the ingredients of a true boxing fan’s Championship fight. Both of the combatants are big punchers and have compiled an impressive total of twenty nine knockouts between them. They will be expected to come out with bombing raids from the outset as the winner of this contest should solidify the World #1 ranking and mandatory obligation to fight for a World Title.

In a special Heavyweight attraction scheduled for eight rounds, the hard hitting sensation Olanrewaju “God’s Power” Durodola (9-0-0) formerly from Nigeria now calling Kansas his home will step into a room. Given that he has stopped eight out of his nine previous opponents inside the distance and seven of those inside the first round, he has been compared by some critics and fans to a young “Iron” Mike Tyson.

His opponent will be the tough and ever exciting Henry Namauu (10-4-0) from Las Vegas, Nevada. This will be the toughest test for Duradola as he will learn if he has what it takes against the battle tested Namauu to move to the next level.

The undercard bouts will feature upcoming boxers and local favorites from the West Coast and Las Vegas area.

In a highly anticipated rematch of Light-Flyweights, Edwin Reyes will take on Yosigey Ramirez. In their last encounter this past April, they fought to an exciting draw and received a standing ovation from the fans at ringside.

American rock duo Steely Dan to perform at the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort on Thursday, October 13, 2011, at 9 p.m. as part of the Shuffle Diplomacy tour.

Steely Dan’s popularity peaked in the late 1970’s with core members Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. They have continued their success with the release of seven albums, including the Grammy Award-winning, Two Against Nature, by blending jazz, rock, pop, funk and R&B paired with the duos sarcasm and puzzling lyrics.

In 1975 they became a purely studio-based act releasing a series of successful singles and albums. Well-known for their perfectionism in the recording studio, it took more than a year to record the tracks that resulted in 1980’s Gaucho. During the summer of 1981, Becker and Fagen announced that they were parting ways. The following year, Fagen released his solo debut, The Nightfly, which became a commercial hit. He did not record another album until 1993, when he reunited with Becker, who produced Kamakiriad. During their time apart they maintained a cult like fan base and in 1993 the group resumed playing live concerts.

Steely Dan mounted another reunion tour in 1994 and in early 2000 the duo issued Two Against Nature, their first new studio album in two decades, which landed them a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. They have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2001 and Everything Must Go followed in 2003. Fagen’s solo album, Morph the Cat, was released in 2006 and Becker released Circus Money in 2008.

This event is produced by Andrew Hewitt and Live Nation. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and show time is 9 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open Sunday from noon – 7:00 p.m., Monday from noon – 10:30 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday from noon – 7:00 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon – 10 p.m..

The Las Vegas Showgirl Turns 30: Jubilee! Celebrates 30-Year Run this July

THE SHOWGIRL TURNS 30…JUBILEE! AT BALLY’S LAS VEGAS CELEBRATES HISTORIC 30-YEAR RUN THIS JULY

After 18,720 Shows, Entertaining More Than 18 Million Guests and Dancing
Through Over 500,000 Pairs of Tights, Jubilee! is the Longest Running Show
on the Las Vegas Strip

All anniversaries are special, but on July 30, 2011, Jubilee! at Bally’s Las Vegas will not only celebrate its Pearl anniversary; it will secure a place in Las Vegas history as the longest-running show on the famous Las Vegas Strip. The iconic and ultra-glamorous Showgirl has become synonymous with Las Vegas, and Jubilee! proudly stands as the last production show of its kind. Conceived, staged and directed by the legendary Donn Arden, the elaborate retro-glam extravaganza features lavish costumes, dazzling scenery, world-renowned specialty acts, dynamic music, graceful pageantry and of course, gorgeous showgirls wearing their trademark bright shade of red lipstick.

While dancing shows have taken American television by storm and regenerated interest in dance as entertainment, Jubilee! at Bally’s Las Vegas put the spotlight on intricate dance moves back in 1981—the same time that Michael Jackson’s Thriller started its record-breaking run and “I Want My MTV” became a pop culture phenomenon. With 85 dancers of amazing stature (the true showgirl must be at least 5’8” and the men 6’0” and over), accomplished singers, and three specialty performances, Jubilee! is set in seven acts featuring original songs, dances and productions.

The Broadway meets Vegas Glitz production numbers are astounding in size and scope. The stage itself is 190 feet in length and 73 feet deep – making it half the size of a football field and 15 stories tall from the bottom of the orchestra pit to the roof. The show contains sequences not found on any other stage in the world, including amazing aerial stunts and memorable scenes such as “The Sinking of the Titanic” (where 5,000 gallons of recycled water cascade across the stage during the “iceberg” scene) and “The Destruction of the Temple by Samson.” The finale, which includes the famous Red Feather Fan number with the songs, “In the Still of the Night,” “Night and Day,” “Begin the Beguine,” and “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” has remained a show-stopper for the 30-year run. From beginning to end, Jubilee! features 100 different sets and backdrops,100,000 light bulbs and more than 125 miles of wiring. Additionally, 4,200 pounds of dry ice are used every week to create the smoke effects, and 10 pounds of explosives are used nightly in the 50 different pyrotechnical effects

The 85 showgirls and showboys who make up the historic cast are selected via casting calls held throughout the country several times a year. Not unlike the famed Rockettes, Jubilee! dancers are in a class by themselves, and over the 30-year history the show has featured more than a thousand dancers. With countless hours of rehearsals, choreography and mastering large productions and dance routines, what really separates the Jubilee! Showgirl is her ability to wear the world-renowned head dress, which can weigh up to 22 pounds.

With more than 1,000 costumes worn during the show, Jubilee! has also created 30 years of brilliant stage couture, with many of the costumes having been designed by famed designer Pete Menefee. The original cost for the costumes was $3.5 million, and 18 people currently work in wardrobe every night keeping the costumes in excellent shape. The rhinestones used on the costumers are silver plated Austrian Swarovski crystals, the highest quality rhinestone in the world. There was actually a worldwide shortage of rhinestones in 1981 because they were all being used to create the original Jubilee! costumes. Topaz, crystal, sapphire, emerald, ruby, amethyst and aurora borealis rhinestones are also used, and if all the jewelry from the show were weighed together, it would weigh 10,000 pounds. Mostly ostrich and pheasant feathers are used on the costumes, as well as rooster, turkey and vulture feathers.

“We know a woman never likes to tell her age, but we are so proud of the Showgirl turning 30,” laughs David Hoenemeyer, Bally’s Las Vegas regional president. “To now be reaching our 30th Anniversary is an amazing feat. It’s such an exciting time because there is obviously a renewed interest in dance and the dancers themselves. I think Jubilee! is a great example of how something unique, distinctive and extraordinary really never goes out of style. Big productions, concerts and special events come and go in Las Vegas, but only one show has outlived them all, and it’s Jubilee! We feel that we are bringing a bit of classic Las Vegas to our guests every night we perform.”
