 Frankie Moreno – Under The Influence
Frankie Moreno – Under The Influence
A favorite among music lovers and locals in Las Vegas, singer/songwriter Frankie Moreno steps into the spotlight as the new headlining act at Planet Hollywood. As a classically-trained pianist, Moreno and his 10-piece band bring sophistication and a fresh approach to music. He performs both original songs and covers of well-known tunes in his show.Many know Moreno from his rocking 2012 appearance on "Dancing With The Stars." Moreno and his band performed his song "Tangerine Honey" to a red hot dance by Lacey Schwimmer. He then sang an amazing cover of "Real Wild Child" while Kyle Massey, Schwimmer and others performed.Moreno jump-started his music career when he was 11 and landed a spot next to Ed McMahon on "Star Search." This opportunity came about as a result of Moreno's successful collaboration on the song "Eleanor Rigby" with world-renowned violinist Joshua Bell. That song was featured on Bell's best-selling debut album, "At Home With Friends." It reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in two categories. A piano prodigy who has blossomed into a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist capable of bringing audiences of all ages and musical tastes to their feet night after night, Moreno is poised to break out of the Las Vegas entertainment scene and onto the national stage with "Under the Influence," which blends retro vibes with a hip, modern sound, to bring to life Moreno's very personal path to becoming one of Las Vegas' most versatile and best-loved performers.Moreno has also garnered attention from the music industry. He toured with Billy Currington, who co-headlined with Sugarland. Moreno also joined multiplatinum artists Air Supply during their world tour.Moreno has become such a favorite of Las Vegas residents, he routinely is chosen in "Best Of" polls. He has been named "Best Strip Headliner" by the "Las Vegas Weekly" and was also named "Las Vegas Headliner of the Year" two times running.Don't miss your chance to catch this singing sensation in his all-new residency at Planet Hollywood.

 Matt Goss
Matt Goss
Singer Matt Goss is bringing audiences back to the days of vintage Vegas with a swinging band, sexy dancers and a classic casino venue.The show at Cleopatra's Barge (now also dubbed the Gossy Room) at Caesars Palace features a blend of covers and Goss' original songs. Since the show takes place in a lounge smoking is allowed during the show.Goss sings familiar tunes like "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder and The Eagles' "Hotel California," which he plays with a unique reggae/ska spin.Goss' dapper attire, blue eyes and smooth voice has drawn the inevitable comparisons to Frank Sinatra and he pays tribute to the legendary singer and the Rat pack era in his show by crooning songs like "Luck Be a Lady" and "I've Got the World on a String."While the covers are fun, a large part of the show also includes Goss' original songs.For those who may not be familiar with Goss and his music, he's an accomplished singer and songwriter. Known by his fans as "The Voice," Goss found fame as the lead singer of the British '80s pop group Bros. With 11 Top 40 singles and three Top 20 albums, Bros was one of the biggest acts in the U.K., selling more than 17 million records worldwide.In 1992, Goss left the band to pursue a solo career. His debut solo album "The Key" was released in 1995. He has also written hits for other chart-topping artists, including the song "Change Me" for Keri Hilson and Akon. His song "It's the End of the Road" was used as the elimination song on the TV show "So You Think You Can Dance." He released the album "Gossy" in 2009 and the single "Firefly" from the album was remixed by DJ Paul Oakenfold.Besides great singing, Goss' show also features a nine-piece band including a talented horn section. Goss himself sits down at the piano for a song or two and plays the guitar.While the women in the audience clearly enjoy watching the handsome singer, there's some eye candy for the guys too. The show, produced by Pussycat Dolls creator Robin Antin, features the Dirty Virgins, a troupe of sexy, scantily clad dancers who perform on stage and sometimes among the audience.The Gossy Room (aka Cleopatra's Barge), has a rich history at Caesars Palace (it opened in 1970) and is the perfect spot to enjoy the old Vegas vibe of Goss' show. The room, surrounded by red velvet curtains, was remodeled when Goss opened his show there. There are small tables with candles on them and cocktail waitresses in long black gowns who bring drinks to guests. There is also a small bar in the back of the room. The Gossy Room is a small venue -- there are only about 175 seats -- but it makes the show feel almost like a private performance to which you were invited. The intimate room also allows Goss to connect with fans as he comes out into the audience on certain numbers.

The venue is perfectly quaint! Probably less than one hundred seats all with a great view of the performance.
PostedApril 18, 2013
Now only performing Friday and Saturday evenings so get your tickets in advance or miss Goss until next time. Outstanding Cabaret performance of sounds from the Sinatra era.

 Peepshow
Peepshow
Experience Peepshow during its final weeks! The show will close Sept. 1.Nursery rhymes get a naughty twist in this sultry spectacular. Developed by Tony award-winning director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell ("Legally Blonde," "Hairspray") and BASE Entertainment, Peepshow demonstrates the art of tease mixed with humor, a high-energy contemporary soundtrack and all of the glamorous production elements found only in Vegas.Coco Austin, star of the hit E! Entertainment reality show "Ice Loves Coco," will play the role of Bo Peep now through Sept. 1, 2013 (with some Coco-cations). As a reality star, glamour/fitness model, actress, dancer and entrepreneur, Coco is known for teaching women how to be fit, sexy and self confident making her turn in the role of “Bo Peep” a perfect match.Coco's character, Bo Peep, starts the show as a lonely but beautiful girl who dreams of finding love. With the help of Peep Diva, the show's storyteller and star singer, Bo learns to let loose and show off her sexy side. Soon enough, she finds the perfect man — and it's not who you'll expect!A cast of talented and tantalizing fairy tale characters take Bo Peep through the paces of building self esteem and mastering seduction. A stellar solo pole dance number in which a beautiful dancer performs feats of strength and grace is among the highlights.Each scene in Peepshow is themed with a different nursery rhyme and a popular song like Aerosmith's "Pink," Cristina Aguilara's "Aint No Other Man" and Ginuwine's "Pony." The catchy lyrics tell a narrative while the dancers perform both covered and topless routines.When Peep Diva and Bo Peep meet a character named Wicked Wendy the dancers perform a racy routine choreographed to Kelis' "Milk Shake." Through the song Wicked Wendy shows other women how they too can be ultra sexy. The act ends with a big splash when Wicked Wendy and two other dancers climb into a giant wagon with a see-through tub of milk on top of it and tease the audience by giving them a peek of how milk has done their body good.Next, a bathtub appears on stage along with Bo Peep. Women go wild as a male performer with dark hair and rippling muscles emerges from the tub dripping with water. He performs an aerialist routine from a rope hanging above the stage while casually flirting with Bo Peep and enticing her to join him for a bath.The crowd is teased the whole night through as Bo learns the ropes from the other dancers but declines to take off her own top and try out their moves. But Bo's final transformation is anything but disappointing!

Choreographics and storyline went well together. Little Bo Peep was not the star of the show thankfully.
PostedApril 18, 2013
Very tastefully orchestrated. Costume design wa appropriate for the type of show, colorful and showed just enough skin to keep you and your spouse interested.

With song selections ranging from "Under the Boardwalk" to "Uptown Funk," the four men of Human Nature will have everyone dancing in their seats and tapping their toes along to the beat.Human Nature's smooth vocals and flawless harmonies have skyrocketed their popularity and success on the Las Vegas Strip for nearly a decade.

Part of that inspiration came from the positive message they got from hearing Motown music and then wanting to share that experience with others.Audiences watch the group in awe, mesmerized by their four voices resounding throughout the showroom. There are several moments when Human Nature performs without the band; these songs spotlight each performer's amazing voice and the ability to perform in perfect harmony.
