Las Vegas Entertainers SALUTE TO BILL FAYNE!

Yesterday, March 6, 2010, my vocal trio Dangerous Curves had the FABULOUS experience of singing with some of the greatest talent in Las Vegas at the Suncoast Hotel & Casino when we participated in the “Las Vegas Entertainers SALUTE TO BILL FAYNE!”

The rundown for the show read like a regular “who’s who” of the BEST talent in the city, and we were incredibly honored to have been asked to be a part of it! In addition to those pictured to the right (Michelle Johnson, Fifth Avenue, Lou Martinez, Swing City Dolls, Dangerous Curves), the AMAZING cast included: Clint Holmes & Kelly Clinton (who hosted the show together), Terry Fator, Louis Anderson, Rick Faugno (Jersey Boys), Jerry Lopez (Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns), Pete Barbutti, Robin Leach, Lance Burton, Mark Giovi (Bite at Stratosphere), Domenick Allen (former lead singer of Foreigner) and his daughter Cayleigh Capaldi, Susan Anton, Cast members from Menopause the Musical (Skye Dee Miles, Sandra Benton, Vida Corimbi), Lena Prima, Voce Vegas, Frankie Scinta, Las Vegas Tenors, Tina Walsh (Phantom – The Las Vegas Spectacular), Gayle Steele, Vinnie Falcone, and many, MANY more!!!! It was absolutely incredible!

Some of my favorite moments from the day include:

  • Singing backups (with Karen, Gret, Lori & Michelle) for Mark Giovi on his original song, “Young Angels”…GREAT song, and the man can SANG!
  • Rockin’ out and sharing a mic with the incredible Domenick Allen in the finale of the show…so much talent in one man!
  • Spending time with so many of our talented, wonderful friends!!!!!!!

THANK YOU to everyone involved for a FABULOUS day!
