Donny Edwards as The King

Gary Anthony & Rich Natole

Donny Edwards stars in The Next Best thing to The King at the South Point Showroom, on Friday, January 9th, Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th, with all three shows starting at 7:30 p.m. Donny Edwards' admiration and appreciation of Elvis Presley began at an early age. His mama recalls how he tried to dance to Elvis' records even before he could walk. By the age of five, Donny was so passionate about Elvis that he pushed his grandmother's hand away from the radio dial as she attempted to change the station while "Hound Dog" was playing. Little did he know that his devotion would lead him to a beloved career, paying tribute to one of the greatest musical artists in history. On August, 2013, Elvis Presley Enterprises granted permission and bestowed the honor to Mr. Edwards of being the one and only Elvis Presley tribute artist to have performed his show on the estate grounds of Graceland since 1977. At the same time, Donny was commissioned by the Governor of Tennessee and named an Honorary Tennessean. He is also proudly on the Elvis Presley Enterprises, "preferred" tribute artist list. Edwards is an international, multi-award winning Elvis tribute artist. Today, he is one of the most sought after performers in the business, bringing his show to stages in casinos, theaters/venues, fairs/ festivals, corporate/special events, cruises and production shows, world-wide. He is a versatile performer with the ability to re-enact each era of Elvis' life and career. His dynamic performance will take you back to the 1950s and the early years of rock n' roll, getting you "all shook up," all over again. Then you'll go on a ride through the 1960s, from Elvis' biggest hit movies to the famous black leather "68 Comeback Special." Finally, you'll revisit the legendary Las Vegas years of the 1970s, as Donny recreates the performances that made Elvis the one and only "King of Rock n' Roll." Among his professional accomplishments, Donny was the star performer at Las Vegas' famous "Elvis-A- Rama" museum and showroom for three years before it closed its doors in 2006. He has appeared on the cover of two published books about Elvis tribute artists, and is also a two-time world champion of two of the biggest Elvis contests ever, at Isle of Capri and Potawatomi in 2006 and 2007. Donny also finished in the top three in the "Ultimate Elvis" contest held in Memphis, Tennessee, for three years in a row in 2007, 2008 and 2009. He no longer does contests, as his career has moved beyond the competitions at this point, and his professional tribute show is what is important to him and what he focuses on now. Recently, Donny was asked to appear on the David Letterman show, but due to other commitments during the time, he was unable to accept. Throughout his career, Donny has had the opportunity to work beside many of the original musicians that performed with Elvis Presley, including The Jordanaires, The Sweet Inspirations, DJ Fontana, Charlie Hodge and Bob Moore, to name some. Donny has also had the pleasure of working with Elvis' inner circle, such as Sonny West, Al Dvorin, Charles Stone and Ed Bonja. Elvis Presley Enterprises and CKX have hired Donny for tribute shows, TV spots and corporate events, many times over the years. Donny has also performed at private parties for and worked with celebrities such as Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the NASCAR family, Marie Osmond, Bill Medley of the Righteous Bros. and Elvis' friends and co-stars, Jimmy Velvet (Elvis' friend and recording artist), Darlene Thompkins (Elvis' co-star in Blue Hawaii) and Cynthia Pepper (Elvis' co-star in Kissin' Cousins). Not only is Donny known for his riveting live performances, but he has also appeared in numerous TV shows and ads, including ABC's Monday Night Football, MTV's Viva La Bam, CBS's The Young and The Restless, ABC's, The Next Best Thing, and many Elvis character TV ads in the UK, Europe and Australia, including Kingsmill Bread and Toshiba. He regularly sells out shows, performing with an eight-piece band all across the US and in countries such as Canada, Japan and Australia, and to audiences as large as 25,000. Donny Edwards maintains a performance of remarkable authenticity. His humility, charm and southern manner, coupled with his uncanny sound and appearance, will make you feel as if you are watching "The King," himself.
Tickets are $20/$25/$30 and available at the South Point Box Office, or call (702) 797-8055.

From the Las Vegas Media Group's Lisa Gioia-Acres comes this note. Well, folks - you know how the best laid plans can go awry? For those of you that RSVP'd, thank you. At the last count, there were 92, but I wonder if the count will go down, stay the same, or increase when I inform you that Todd Fisher, son of Debbie Reynolds, and soap actress (One Life to Live), Catherine Hickland, will take Debbie's place as speaker on Monday, January 19th. Debbie Reynolds has been directed by her doctor (according to Thalia Dondero's conversation with Debbie last week) not to travel in the near future. So, we start the RSVP process all over again. PLEASE, contact me at [email protected], or Gretchen Payne at (702) 870-5994, to inform of us of your intentions - do you want to keep your RSVP as is? Change it? Add or remove guests?

As this week's column shows up online, Jimmy Emerson and Tommi Rose should have the audiences at Ron DeCar's Event Center in hysterics, with their musical comedy revue, Funny, PHAT & Fabulous. The back-by-popular-demand funfest takes place tonight, beginning at 7:30. Both Jimmy and Tommi have worked as female impersonators for more than 25 years, and both have toured the world with their hilarious cast of characters. Jimmy performed and hosted as the comedy star in the long running An Evening At La Cage, and has hosted his own versions of the show over the years. He recently won the "Best MC" in Las Vegas award from the Entertainment community. Tommi performed and hosted in the famous Finocchio's club in San Francisco, and has actually filled in for Jimmy in La Cage. These two seasoned performers got together and decided that between them, they had MORE than enough material to put on a very fun, bawdy and raunchy show! Unlike most female impersonator shows, where lip-synching is used, Jimmy and Tommi sing LIVE for most of their show. Both entertainers will share their favorite stories and jokes that they have been waiting for years to tell. Be forewarned - in addition to live impersonations of famous stars like Carol Channing, Roseanne Barr, Mae West, Dolly Parton, and Kirstie Alley, the audience will also be exposed to dirty, vile, nasty, inappropriate, shocking and downright offensive humor. You should leave the kids at home for this one, but take grandma! You all will love it!! We will have a follow-up in next Friday's column.

Nelson Sardelli tells us that journalist/author, John L. Smith, will be the special guest at the F.I.O.R.E.'s January luncheon (and president Sardelli would never mislead us when it comes to anything F.I.O.R.E.). On Thursday, January 8th at 11:30 a.m., Smith, the award-winning journalist will kick of the F.I.O.R.E.'s first get- together of the New Year with a thought provoking and entertaining talk to be held at the Italian American Club, 2333 E. Sahara. John L. Smith is a well respected columnist for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the author of 15 books. Born in Henderson (of course), John, the father of an 18-year-old daughter, traces his Nevada roots back to 1882. The non-club club F.I.O.R.E. is honored to have him as their first guest speaker of 2015. Tickets are $25.

In addition to the guest speaker, enjoy a delicious buffet, live entertainment with Gary Anderson & The Malcontents, the famous F.I.O.R.E. 50/50 and fun giveaways, and socializing with some of the city's most interesting people (of course, there are exceptions to every rule).

The Bagel Boys

And speaking of Sardelli, and we often do, last week at the Bagel Cafe', he, Marty Allen, George Bugatti, Sam Arlen ( the son of the legendary American composer, Harold Arlen), Corey Levitan and Lou Toomin, once again sang "Happy Birthday" to unsuspecting, unaware diners who were NOT celebrating any birthday. Once the folks saw and heard what was going on, the "boy band" (make that the Bagel Boy Band) got many requests from other tables where no one was celebrating either. Go figure it. Sardelli informs us that they do not serve alcoholic beverages at the Bagel Café, but suggests they might as well start.

While other parts of the country were shoveling snow on Monday, the temperature at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport hit 73 degrees, the highest temperature for that date since official records started being kept in 1937. The previous record of 68 degrees was set in 1950. The normal high for the day is 56 degrees. Just thought you would like to know.

Nik Mastrangelo wants to thank all those savvy folks who helped make their holiday bash at the Tuscany Hotel's La Piazza Lounge such a festive affair last Sunday! Joey Singer, Bob Sachs, Mike Mechem and NikI were once again joined by Grammy Award-winning guitarist, Jake Langley, as they made merry with some very jazzy songs of the season mixed with some perennial favorites. Jake also brought by his fellow Canadian, Rob Kazenel, who sat in on drums (Bah Rum Pa Pum Pum). Joyce Carole also came by to add her vocal talents to the mix. Oh, what fun....! This Sunday, Nik has selected the music of some of his favorite composers that haven't been featured in several months - Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen and Kurt Weill. We might also throw in some great songs penned by the talented drummer, Dave Tull. This will be a perfect way to spend a Sunday between Christmas and New Year's Eve.
The Piazza Lounge is located within the Tuscany Hotel at 255 E Flamingo.

Mark Shunock at Mondays Dark

* * * * * * * *

Congratulations to Mark Shunock, whose Mondays Dark celebrated its one year anniversary on December 15th. Shunock, took an idea and turned it into something very special. On the third Monday night of each month, Shunock, who plays Lonny the narrator in the hit musical Rock of Ages at the Venetian, presents music and comedy for a cause when in Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel. Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of talented guests, including stars from Hollywood, Vegas headliners, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs, for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment – and a lot of laughs. Each month, Mondays Dark partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity, and Shunock's goal is to raise $10,000 for each charity. "The premise of the show is old-school Vegas meets new-school Vegas while being very gritty, real and spontaneous," says Shunock. His plan was to create an evening that raises awareness and funds for a charity, while at the same time, being an entertaining evening that people won't forget. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino jumped on board immediately and it really is the perfect venue for this show," says Shunock. Mark Shunock's career has spanned from theatre, film, television and, even the hockey arena. A native of Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, after a brief stint with the Canadian Hockey League, Mark knew his passion was not in the hockey arena but, on the stage. Following his hockey career, Mark headed to the USA and studied at the American Academy for the Dramatic Arts, which led to numerous productions performing in various regional theaters in and around New York City. Following his success on stage, Mark was cast in a small, independent feature film and headed to Hollywood. Though success was following Mark in Los Angeles, a year later, the excitement of New York brought Mark back to the Big Apple where he landed the role of "Timon," in the national tour of The Lion King. For more than two years, Mark performed the role in more than 30 cities across the United States, and even garnered a Helen Hayes Award nomination for "Best Supporting Actor" in 2009. Additional theatrical credits include As Is, Jersey Shoresical: A Frickin' Rock Opera, The Temperamentals, Altar Boyz, Miss Saigon, The Awesome 80s Prom, and The Skin of Our Teeth, among others. Mark most recently won critical acclaim for his portrayal of "Lonny" in Rock of Ages, which is currently thrilling audiences at The Venetian in Las Vegas. Among those who attended and/or performed at the one year Mondays Dark anniversary bash, were Louie Anderson, Dot Marie Jones from Glee, Earl Turner, Chris Phillips of Zowie Bowie fame, Reva Rice, Frankie Moreno, John Katsilometes, Chumlee from Pawn Stars, Human Nature, Jersey Boys cast members, Blake Lewis from American Idol, and Edie from Zumanity,

Steve Wynn's ShowStoppers all started as a gift to his wife Andrea for her birthday party. Steve Wynn handpicked a selection of his favorite numbers from the best of Broadway that were iconic and had the power to resonate with human emotion. The resulting performance was a collection of songs that made the audience literally stand up and cheer—true show stoppers. The show-stopping numbers seemed to have a magic of their own; not exact replicas of each song, but new presentations born from such rich material. The stunning company of musicians, singers and dancers created a connection between performer and audience that was a palpable sense of excitement and joy. The birthday partygoers had the time of their lives, and in the afterglow of the overwhelming reaction, Steve knew he wanted to be able to give this gift to everyone that visits his resort. Steve Wynn's ShowStoppers brings a talented cast of 66 singers, dancers and a full orchestra to the intimate Encore Theater with dazzling scenery and costumes. Created with the same unmistakable elegance and style that is uniquely Wynn, you'll get swept away by the beautiful and powerful performances of quintessential works from some of the most celebrated composers and lyricists to grace Broadway. Provocative, fun and entertaining for all, Steve Wynn's ShowStoppers will be an evening you'll never forget. Steve Wynn's ShowStoppers performs Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with no performances on Sundays and Mondays. There will be two performances, at 7:30 and 10 p.m., today, Friday, December 26th, and Tuesday, December 30th. There will be one 7:30 p.m. performance on New Year's Eve, Wednesday, December 31st.

We received some interesting feedback regarding a couple of items from last week's column. Here they are.

Regarding this paragraph...

The Golden Rainbow Holiday Masquerade, scheduled to take place at Ron DeCar's Event Center tonight, was canceled due to low ticket sales. We aren't surprised, as the display ads in the Neon on Fridays, told absolutely nothing about what, we assume, was a show. Was it to be a musical revue? If so, who was performing and what might the material be? No clues were given in the ads. The one thing that was made clear was that tickets were $50. For your fifty bucks, you would get an Appetizer Buffet, but what else, we have absolutely no idea. Too bad, as Golden Rainbow is a viable local non-profit organization, founded in 1987, providing housing and financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS in the Southern Nevada area.

In our opinion, the Event Center, that started off doing a good job of promoting talented people, acts and revues, now seems to be more interested in promoting the Event Center's owner. Too bad, for lots of reasons.

One of our fans wrote...

I'm a little late in reading it but LOVED LOVED LOVED your critique of , The Event Center!

This message was signed, but it isn't necessary to include the name.

And on the subject of...

In the Bah Humbug spirit of the season, this is on our mind. For those of you (musicians and/or music lovers) who have been avoiding the E-String Grill & Poker Bar because of a certain individual with the initials MKR, we are happy to report that she is gone! As in the past, if history repeats itself (and it usually does),she will probably weasel her way into another neighborhood bar and screw things up there as she has done in the past (think clubs like Black Label, DeStefanos, Frediani‘s. and E-String). This character should come with a warning notice.

A reader wrote...

Thank you. I have avoided the E-String since the DIVA and I had words about her attitude towards the public. After sending her an e- mail regarding said attitude - the next time I went to the E-Sting, I was told by her husband that I was not welcome. Screw her.

Also, I agree with you about the owner of the Event Center. Same attitude as the above Diva. Merry Christmas.

The writer provided his name, but we don't need to use it.
