Some artists never go out of style; and for B.J. Thomas this is a solid known fact. The uber talented singer is hitting Vegas like it was the ‘60s yesterday.Now, we’re not ones to pick favorites, but the second B.J. Thomas starts singing “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head,” we’re going to lose our sh*t. True fans, or not, you have to admit that song is lit. It even won the Academy Award for best original song. His other famous hits include “Hooked on a Feeling” and an Elvis cover “I Just Can’t Help Believing.” Hold on why we fan girl in the corner real quick.Watch B.J. Thomas ignite the night in Vegas. Let’s talk about an artist who knows what it’s like to produce hit after hit after hit. B.J. Thomas, the American pop singer from the ‘60s is hitting the Vegas stage for a night to remember.Gaining success off the album “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” he soon rose to be an artist that sold more than a million copies. And if you don’t believe us, go check out his golden disc he received because of it. Right after that he went on to producing “Hooked on a Feeling” and his most famous hit “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head,” which won the Academy Award for best original song. After reaching the maximum level of star power, he went on to touring the world.Don’t miss this triumphant star hit the Vegas stage for one night.

The Rat Pack IS Back!
PostedApril 22, 2014
These four guys do a great job imitating Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Joey Bishop! They ALL have the moves down perfectly and in my opinion, the Sammy Davis, Jr. entertainer was spot on! The Dean Martin similarity in looks is uncanny! He has the distinctive Dean Martin sound down, but missed just a couple of high notes at the show I attended...Sinatra...pretty good look alike, and had an excellent Sinatra sound, sang may of his greatest hits including "My Way" of course....and Joey Bishop does stand-up comedy....so funny to hear those fifties/sixties type jokes! Felt like we were at The Sands in the 1960's! If you buy the higher priced tickets, you sit around tables in the front and center...the guys frequently come down into that area of the audience and interact...I'm a big fan and would see this show again...

There are some basic rules of magic. Never tell your audience how a trick is done, don't show the audience how you prep for a trick, and never, ever perform the classic cups and balls trick with transparent cups. Well, Penn and Teller manage to break all of these rules and more in their show at the Rio Hotel and Casino and it’s perfection.Just like every amazing duo, Penn and Teller have their strengths and weaknesses and combined, they create the perfect storm of comedy, magic and entertainment. The tall, lanky Penn serves as a narrator, providing a running comedic commentary on just about everything they do, while Teller handles much of the show's action, all without saying a single word.While there are some elements of classic magic and sleight of hand in the show, most of the tricks are incredibly creative, innovative and sometimes bordering on the macabre. Yep, knives are thrown, goldfish are materialized, and needles are swallowed… or are they? The fun of this show is that the duo lets the audience in on some of the tricks, but others are meant to completely mystify the crowd and it works. Comedic, mind-bending, and totally entertaining, Penn & Teller is a classic Vegas show that is a vacation rite of passage.

Penn and Teller...like their Libertarian viewpoint!
PostedApril 22, 2014
If you see the show, you'll understand the Libertarian reference in my "summary"....they take bits from their various tours and Penn says they change up the Las Vegas show often...Teller says nothing, Ha, Ha! If you enjoy Penn & Teller from TV appearances, you'll enjoy their Las Vegas show...as of 2014 they have been settled there about 13 years now...large auditorium with comfortable seating...we sat in the Mezzanine sections and could still see well...after the show, you can meet them outside the theater. Also this show would be appropriate for children to see...
