A definite stand-out on the Las Vegas lounge circuit, this unusually unique performer got his start in his hometown Detroit (Motown) Michigan where he started singing, dancing, modeling and acting all by the age of sixteen. Nightclub, Television and Radio work kept him busy while he constantly absorbed a variety of music, movies and entertainment; "I Love watching live performances, especially the great superstars, you can learn so much from them if you really open yourself up to it: most singers can stand there, look good and do a song, but it's the way you AFFECT people, how you grab them, touch them and get into their psyche: (am I getting heavy on ya?) That's part of the gift.. The ART of performance."
Moving to Las Vegas from Detroit in 1987, VARGAS first came out to join an award winning production show. Being a lead singer-performer was a valuable experience for him and very important for this growth and development as an entertainer; "I learned a lot, it was great but I was aching to do MY THANG! continue my adventure!!" In 1993, VARGAS left a well paying steady gig to go out on his own and MAKE IT WORK!!
With VARGAS' act being so unique and so different from the usual Vegas fare, it wasn't easy, but with persistence, determination and faith - The ART OF VARGAS was spreading. VARGAS and his solid nine piece jazz band, with some of Las Vegas' finest jazz musicians is the HIPPEST group in town… layin down and turnin out JAZZ, BLUES and traditional SWINGIN standards with CAPTIVATING MOMENTS OF SPONTANEITY as VARGAS works the room, bares his emotional soul as he brings to life the DRAMA of song… INTENSE! With no shortage of energy throughout his performance, VARGAS is singin, dancin, and acting out the essence of the song, an incredible vocal ability, daring antics, and alluring strength.
Like the Legendary showbizzness performers of the 1940's, 50's and 60's VARGAS carries on the true tradition of performance in song with Energy, Excitement, Vibrance and Romance into the 21st century.
