Las Vegas - November 22, 2013

- We Remember -

John Fitzgerald Kennedy


May 29, 1917 - November 22, 1963

This article appeared in the recent issue of Florida's Venue Magazine. The artist, Martin Kreloff, has been a Las Vegas resident for more than nine years.


Artist Martin Kreloff

Martin Kreloff Inspires Miami to Say "ART!"
We can not separate art from life. In recent years, Miami has become a vibrant and vital destination that pulsates with the glow of a world class art scene. As with this year, Martin Kreloff, a visionary artist, will reunite several current cultural champions for MIAMI SAYS ART 2 exhibition, creating a new time-capsule honoring Miami's art evolution. Last year, Art Basel Week kicked off with a much talked-about tribute to Miami's arts pioneers with Kreloff's 1976 "Miami Says Art". As a contemporary art leader, Kreloff's work is held by MOMA New York as well as dozens of other prestigious galleries and museums across America. This time he is bringing MIAMI SAYS ART 2, which features a wall series of portraits by himself, alongside Miami's new museum directors, gallerists, performing arts leaders and directors of cultural institutions. "Playing off the original concept of the 1976 show, we photographed Miami's cultural and artistic leaders last year during Art Basel week, jubilantly proclaiming the word ‘ART!'" says Kreloff. "I've also collaborated with Miami artist Gustavo Oviedo on a black box multimedia installation. What will this year's MIAMI SAYS ART be like? All I can say is... Miami - you really know how to say ‘ART!'" Presented by the Mayfair Hotel & Spa, MIAMI SAYS ART 2 ushers in Art Basel Week 2013 and is on view from Dec. 2nd - 8th, 10:00am - 8:00pm at the hotel's exquisite Palm Terrance in the heart of historic Coconut Grove. Even better, it is free and open to the public, providing a window into the city's bright future as an art destination.
Our question is, "Why can't Mr. Kreloff create that kind of excitement here is Las Vegas?" He is MORE than willing and able! City fathers (and mothers), are you listening???

The Phat Pack

After almost one year in the showroom at the downtown Plaza Hotel, earning amazing reviews, and receiving standing ovations nightly, The Phat Pack gave their last performance there last Saturday night. A very enthusiastic crowd was in attendance to enjoy the evening and bid the cast a fond farewell...until they found a new home and a spotlight. You can't keep a good show down for long, and The Phat Pack is a damn good show! Some in the audience were already aware that a new location had been secured...this time on the famed Las Vegas Strip. For those who didn't know, the announcement at the end of the finale was met with cheers. The Phat Pack, in conjunction with Andrew Van Slee of Extraordinary Media Inc., is very pleased to announce that their critically acclaimed show is opening at Bally‘s Hotel & Casino. Their first performance in the Bally‘s Windows Showroom will be on Wednesday, December 11th, and will run Wednesdays through Sundays at 4:30 p.m. We are so happy to be re-opening, and really excited to be joining the line-up at Bally‘s Windows Showroom!," says Bruce Ewing of The Phat Pack. Broadway singers, Ewing (Jinx in Forever Plaid on the National Tour and in Las Vegas), Ted Keegan (The Phantom in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and on Tour), Randal Keith (Valjean in Les Miserables on Broadway and on Tour), and Kevan Patriquin (Lead Singer and Stunt Coordinator in EFX at MGM, Las Vegas), all met as cast members in Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular. When PHantom closed after six years, the fellows created The PHat Pack, a show filled with great MUSIC - Broadway, American Standards, Las Vegas favorites and original songs; LAUGHTER - in song and story; and DREAMS, as the guys share their personal and career journeys. While at the Plaza, The Phat Pack was named the Las Vegas Review-Journal Editor‘s Pick for "Best Of Las Vegas 2013 - Best All Around Performers." In addition to the multi-talented singing actors, The Phat Pack includes an amazing pianist/accompanist - most often, Joey Singer (Debbie Reynolds‘ longtime musical director) or Philip Fortenberry (Jersey Boys' associate conductor) - creating a stage full of talent. Tickets for The Phat Pack are now available, and may be purchased at Bally's Box Office, ordered by calling (702) 757-6530, or by visiting the show's website at www.PhatPackShow.com. For the three people who may not know, Bally‘s Hotel & Casino is located at 3645 Las Vegas Blvd. So., at the corner of Flamingo.

Pia Zadora & Dr. Lonnie Hammargren at F.I.O.R.E.

* * * * * * * *

More than 100 people turned out for the November F.I.O.R.E. luncheon, held, as usual, at the Italian American Club on the 14th. The gathering's special guest was singer/actress, Pia Zadora. Rolando Larraz, and his Las Vegas Tribune Roving Reporter did a nice article, with lots of photos, in the Tribune's November 20-26 edition. You can read all about it by going to http://lasvegastribune.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/lvt20131120.pdf (page 16). Thanks to Nelson Sardelli, and the rest of the hard-working Presidents and First Ladies, F.I.O.R.E. (Fun Italians Organizing Ridiculous Events) has grown into a force to be reckoned with. People from the world of entertainment and politics, rub shoulders with big business owners and folks who, like Cyndi Lauper, "just want to have fun." We always give a heads-up about upcoming F.I.O.R.E. events. If you think you might be interested in joining one of the parties, stay tuned for details.

Jalles Franca in MJ Live!

Producers Dick Feeney and Darin Feinstein are more than a bit pleased with a new review (November 7th) from critic Mike Weatherford of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Mike is hard to please, so the folks at MJ LIVE! are very excited and thrilled to be wowing the crowds nightly at the RIO Hotel. Here is what Mr. Weatherford had to say about the show.
'MJ Live!' has more life in it, thanks to star Franca
Las Vegas has been great for Michael Jackson's reputation. The real King of Pop was a low-profile resident of our town during his final years, sometimes spotted with his children at shows or book stores. But the frail, troubled singer isn't the version that is on display post-mortem. In Cirque du Soleil's lavish "Michael Jackson One," the departed superstar returns as a messianic spirit guide, imbuing mere mortals with special powers via his magic hat and glove. But the one thing "One" doesn't have is a flesh-and-blood Jackson impersonator. And so there is also the Rio's spare, straight-ahead "MJ Live!" for those who want a more literal dose of Michael - or for those fans hard-core enough to see both. At the Rio, Jalles Franca gives us what you might call the fan-fiction fantasy version of Jackson. Robust, broad-shouldered. No danger of his nose falling off. When he rips his T-shirt in the ecstatic throes of "Man in the Mirror," you see ripped abs, not the fragile figure who weighed 136 pounds when he died. And although it's a good thing that Franca speaks to us in his normal voice between songs - giving us a degree of tribute-act separation - the effect is something like the comical one a drag queen achieves by switching to a deep male voice. When "MJ Live!" opened last year with a different star, I asked in print whether the cottage industry of Jackson impersonators would grow to accept an Elvis-like range of body types. The Brazilian-born Franca, at least, pushes in the more flattering direction. And just this one show has multiplied the work opportunities, employing not one but three Jackson impersonators. Depending on which night you attend, you might see Franca - who was almost literally plucked from the sidewalks, where he performed for tips on the Strip two years ago - or Justin Dean or Tony Kouns, who rotate through the production that never takes a night off. Can't vouch for the latter two, but Franca's enthusiastic, committed impression gets us on his side. "Check this out!" he tells us before he goes into the "slow motion" breakdown on "Beat It." But he isn't the only reason to give "MJ Live!" some kind of "most improved" award. When I saw it 14 months ago, most of the reason it came off as flat and lackluster was that it was a karaoke show, sung to track. Producer Dick Feeney has since added a three-piece band that adds an immeasurable amount of energy, particularly when guitarist Christian Brady jumps down front to solo on the likes of "Beat It."

The eight dancers perform in front of a bandstand adorned with moving lights, so you're not expecting more of them than the framing choreography they mostly offer. Still, their one true moment of glory - facing off as street dancers for "Beat It" - makes you wish more of the songs could be given such vintage MTV readings. But I've never been happier to see zombies. On the last go-round, then-star Michael Firestone told us we had to imagine them for "Thriller." This time, we get not just the dancing zombies, but a Vincent Price vocal impression and Franca in a werewolf mask. The brisk hour slows down to give Franca a chance to sport a decent singing voice on "She's Out of My Life" and "I'll Be There." But things don't slow down for long, because both of those songs turn into crowd interactions. If you find that a distraction, you're probably at the wrong show. To nonbelievers, the title and much of the content may be based on wishful thinking. But "MJ Live!" is really about the fans at this point.

Joe Williams Scholarship Concert Finale

Approximately 400 people, including us, attended this year's Joe Williams Scholarship Fund Concert, held last Sunday afternoon in UNLV's Artemus Ham Hall. Pete Barbutti served as MC, combining his funny side with some impressive piano work (you definitely can't tell that book by its cover). Barbutti introduced the talented performers that included Marlena Shaw, Jo Belle Yonely, Don and Alicia - The Cunninghams, Laura Taylor, Ronnie Rose, Reva Rice, Eric Jordan Young, Pacale Elia (accompanied by Uli Geissendorfer at the piano), Jerry Lopez, and Pia Zadora (with Vince Falcone on piano). Eighty-six-year-old comic legend, Sammy Shore, contributed some humorous moments. Special guest star, Ben Vereen, followed by an all-star finale, closed the show. A tip of the hat to producer, Ed Foster, for his tireless work on these annual events, which raise money for deserving UNLV music students.

Reminders...
A laugh-filled benefit will be held at the Plaza Hotel on Sunday, at 4 p.m., for funny lady/ impressionist, Pam Matteson, who is battling cancer. Many of Las Vegas' top comedians and entertainers are gathering to help raise funds to support Pam's treatment and medical bills. Among the performers scheduled to appear are comedian Louie Anderson, comedy magician Mike Hammer, singer/impressionist Gordie Brown, impressionist Rich Little, founder of Improv Comedy Club Budd Friedman, comedy magician Fielding West, singer Clint Holmes, comedians David Gee, Kenny Bob Davis, Kathleen Dunbar, Carla Rea, Max Alexander, Carrie Snow, Cornell Gunters Coasters, and the Michael T Band.

Show tickets start at $25, and are available for purchase at the Plaza Box Office adjacent to the hotel front desk, or by calling (702) 386-2507. It's always a good sign if there is a way to donate direct to the person in need, as opposed to being told to make checks payable to some questionable, pseudo local fundraising operation (we don't need to name names). Of course, donors are safe with national, recognized, properly licensed organizations such as the American Red Cross, Boy Scouts of America, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and other similar organizations. To make a contribution to Pam Matteson DIRECTLY, go to http://www.gofundme.com/4v2oi0.


David de Alba

David de Alba with Mother Tila

Dorothy the Later Years...A Loving Tribute to Judy Garland, starring the famed Finocchio's David de Alba, will take place this Sunday, November 24th, at The Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Avenue in the Las Vegas Commercial Center. San Francisco's Finocchio Club's legendary performer, de Alba, will present a special LIVE tribute concert honoring the memory of the late American Icon, Judy Garland. Mr. de Alba will be singing many of Miss Garland's well-known songs, and narrating some Garland-oriented anecdotes, while wearing many costumes that add to the visual impact of the show. During Sunday's performance, Mr. de Alba will receive, on-stage, a special 'Fans Award' from the Hispanic-speaking community in Miami, as he celebrates his 48 years in show business. Mr. David de Alba puts on the only show of its kind, a tribute to the legendary singer and pop icon, Judy Garland, who dazzled and performed to audiences around the world for many years up until her untimely death in 1969. David's fascination with Judy Garland spans back to the1960s. He was just a teenager when he finally got to meet his American singing idol in Chicago. After that encounter, David's act, which had basically consisted of a small two song live impersonation of Garland, grew by leaps and bounds, until it became a complete live concert. His Judy Garland Tribute concert is comprised of many of Judy's most well-known songs, interlaced with several narrations, some of which are Judy's own anecdotes told during the 1960s. Others are David's own anecdotes about his meeting with Judy and other people who are connected with the Judy Garland Fan Club. David credits much of his musical interest, as well as his life of glamour, to his late mother, Tila. We are sure that her presence will be felt at Sunday‘s show at The Onyx. Start time is at 2 p.m. (theater doors open at 1:30). Tickets are $20 for V.I.P. seating (first two rows), and $15 for General Admission. For reservations, call the Onyx Box Office at (702) 732-7225.

Don't forget that Brazilian jazz sensation, Patty Ascher, presented by Mistinguett Productions, will be appearing at the beautiful Palazzo Hotel's Zebra Lounge on the Las Vegas Strip, tomorrow, Saturday, November 23rd, at 8 p.m.

Liberace by Martin Kreloff

* * * * * * * *

The Red Mountain Music Choir presents Shall We Dance? at Boulder City's Elaine K. Smith Center, 700 Wyoming, with two shows, tonight, November 22nd, and tomorrow night, both at 7:30.

In the past few years, anything we have heard regarding Liberace (a museum on the Strip, a touring museum, a museum downtown, etc., etc.), we have taken with a roll of the eyes, great skepticism, and a "we'll believe it when we see it" attitude...until we read Greenspun Media's story by John Katsilometes (Kats would never steer us wrong). He relays that a new exhibit of the legendary pianist's personal and professional artifacts will go on display at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, beginning at 3 p.m. on Monday, November 25th and running through January 2nd. Called Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful: Liberace and the Art of Costume, hours are daily from 3 to 10 p.m. Kats writes, quoting Liberace Foundation Chairman, Brian "Paco" Alvarez, "The Cosmopolitan fits into the Liberace aesthetic, which is over the top. They have a beautiful marketing campaign with 'The right amount of wrong.' Liberace was just the right amount of fabulous." Billed as Liberace's return to the Strip after a 30-year absence - he had headlined at the Last Frontier, Flamingo, Riviera, Caesars Palace and Flamingo on the Strip, as well as at the Las Vegas Hilton on Paradise Road - the exhibit reminds of the performer's greatest moments in Las Vegas. He was a Vegas star from his opening performance at the Last Frontier in 1944, to his last performance at Circus Maximus at Caesars Palace in August 1986. Thank you for letting us "borrow" your words, Mr. Katsilometes.
