“Entertainment for Health” and “Laugh-a-Thon 2” Benefit @ South Point Showroom!

Shades of Sinatra will be performing THIS weekend at a very special musical-comedy benefit taking place at the South Point Hotel & Casino, located at 9777 South Las Vegas Blvd. The show will take place this Sunday, Sept. 23rd, at 2:00pm, with doors opening at 1:30 p.m.

Organized by the Lions HealthFirst Foundation, in cooperation with the South Point Hotel & Casino who donated the showroom, tickets are now on sale at the showroom Box office, with all seats one price, $25.00. Proceeds will go directly into the Foundation’s Ultrasound Health Screening program.

“Because of fund-raising activities such as this event, the ultrasound exams are free, or at a very low cost to patients who can afford to share in the cost,” James Bartel, president of the Foundation, said. “The exams pick up potentially serious medical problems, such as masses, cysts, tumors, and blockages. Our screenings give you a heads up on what’s going on inside your body.” Bartel added. “They’re painless, non-invasive and only take about 60 minutes.”

The event will include music and comedy, as well as meeting and mingling with a host of celebrities and some of Las Vegas’ most prominent medical doctors. Among the entertainers performing are: Rich Little, Gordie Brown, Leigh Zimmerman and her daughter, Cayleigh Capaldi, Lisa Smith, Shades of Sinatra, Marlon Multo, Peter Anthony, Fielding West, Bill Fayne, Genevieve, Michelle Rohl, and Kelly McDonald, who will perform and host the afternoon. Emmy Award winner, Gary Anderson, has assembled a super trio as backup for the entertainers: Billy T. on piano, Steve Flora, bass, and Ryan Rose on drums. In addition to the trio, Anderson will add three horns, and will present his famous “Lighthouse Jazz Tribute.”

For more information and to secure your tickets in advance, call the Lions Health First Foundation, 739-6393…or you can purchase tickets online HERE. Additional information on the Foundation and its ultrasound screening program can be found on the Internet at

We also wanted to share a very small except from the most recent press review “Shades of Sinatra” received…this time from Richard Lane of “Vegas Chatter!”

“This is a very seasoned and very in-sync team…they clearly still enjoy working together and give the numbers all their worth. These folks can sing. If you want an hour and fifteen minutes of songs you know, sung with passion, this show will make you happy…” <read the entire review HERE> It’s worth reading…it’s a GREAT review!

Finally, a fun candid photo with a couple of the singer/dancers and musical director from “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” after our performance at the San Gennaro Feast in Las Vegas earlier this month (we performed Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights). We had SUCH a great time, as always. Big thanks to Tony Sacca for inviting us to participate again, to the incredible Michael T Orchestra (Dan Ellis, Jeff Davis, Steve Johnson, Gary Queen, Michael Tramontana), to Bruce Hammond (pictured here along with his wife and fellow Shades sub, Jennifer Hammond) for filling in for Ryan on Friday night, and to our many friends and fans who came out to support and “hang” with us. We love you all!

As always, please keep in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter…we look forward to talking with you and seeing you soon!
