Las Vegas normally is one of the world’s capitals of FUN. But we have all been under house arrest since March 15. Nothing fun about that! (But you know that already.) But the entertainers who make Las Vegas fun are still doing fun things, just not up close and personal. Here are three FREE things to do this week-end, beside calling your mom!!!!!
As you can tell from the photo, this local Las Vegan is wacky. He’s often the comedian in Strip shows like Splash (you have to be an old timer like me to remember that one at the long-gone Riv) and V-the Ultimate Variety Show.
He’s now performing in his garage. The show is called “The Comedy Garage” (natch) and it plays on YouTube.
Trammel invites other local entertainers to do their acts in his garage…with the necessary social distancing.
There are 50 episodes so far, so that should keep you busy for awhile!
Jersey Boys songs
Anyone who loves the music of the Four Seasons has to love the Broadway play Jersey Boys. One of those people would be me. I scalped a ticket and saw the original play on Broadway and then saw it three times when it was here in Las Vegas. You know me and musical theater….
Travis Cloer played Frankie Vallie for eight years here. (He was also in the Broadway company.) On April 8 he assembled his former Las Vegas cast mates to virtually sing a show favorite, Sherry.
Then he reached out to the 16 other Jersey Boys companies world-wide. That totalled 175 actors. The singers made videos of themselves singing the song and then sent them to Cloer for editing.
Last week he posted the final version of Sherry on the AnRo YouTube page. You can come out tonight and enjoy!
A Musical Minute
That’s the video series produced by AMF Local 369, which is Las Vegas’s musicians’ union. The project is part of the #VegasGoesBlue campaign to honor our local health care workers and first responders.
Pianist Philip Fortenberry was first up. Today trumpeter Gil Kaupp of Sante Fe & The Fat City Horns blows the blues.
You can see the performances in two places:
- AMFLocal369LV on Facebook
- Pro Musicians Care on YouTube
New videos post every Tuesday and Friday.
Have a great week-end Las Vegas.
Be safe. Be strong. Be Healthy!
And don’t forget to call Mom!!!!!
