Reckless In Vegas announces a new performance date on Friday, May 13, at one of Las Vegas’ most historic social clubs—the Italian American Club of Southern Nevada.
The band will be joined by special guest Kelly Clinton-Holmes and the evening’s performance will be filmed for inclusion in the Reckless In Vegas’ new music video for “Luck Be a Lady,” due out this spring.
“It’s been one year since I returned to my hometown of Las Vegas,” said Michael Shapiro, founder, guitarist and lead vocalist of Reckless In Vegas. “Making this music video has been a fantastic way to mark the anniversary and we can’t think of a better place to finish it. We filmed on a dry lake bed, at the Neon Museum Boneyard and now we’ll wrap things up at the iconic Italian American Club. We can’t wait!”
A hub of the Italian-American community for more than 50 years, the Italian American Club represents an extraordinary backdrop for Reckless In Vegas production show, which showcases the imagery, banter and classic music from the 1960s “glory days” of Las Vegas entertainment, when Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin filled Strip showrooms.
Reckless In Vegas combines music and mood from the 1960s with a contemporary rock band aesthetic. It’s not just a band—members Shapiro, Ryan Low, aka Dr. Fu (drums, vocals) and CChris Nichols (bass, vocals), together with Reckless Dancers JoLae Brandt and Sidney Kounkel, have created an exciting show that incorporates live performances of modern versions of songs by artists such as not only Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, but also Elvis, Sonny & Cher, Frankie Valli, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash and Bobby Darin. The band also incorporates dynamic production-show elements so whether you remember the swinging Vegas lounge era days or were born later, Reckless In Vegas has something for everyone. Video montages, dialogue, humor, modern hard-rocking grooves and tender moments of balladry combine to create a truly original take on this classic genre. Think The Rat Pack meets Green Day.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. General admission tickets are $25. For tickets, call (702) 457-3866 or book online here. The Italian American Club is located at 2333 E. Sahara Ave., Las Vegas, Nevada 89104.
