SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMANCES
Date: Sunday, Jan. 15 Artist: Vegas Poetry Lounge featuring Barry Black & The Senzuals Time: 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. performances Cost: $20 General Admission; $30 VIP (priority entry and seating) Description: The Vegas Poetry Lounge is an unparalleled experience of poetry, live Neo-Soul, R & B music, comedy and spoken word. While the Vegas Poetry Lounge will have a lasting impact, it will create a new love affair with contemporary, urban poetry. The mix of local and national emerging and established poets will ensure a great experience. Barry Black is a young acoustic singer/songwriter highly influenced by the sounds of the classic soul era. Despite his respect for the past, his live performances are a mixture of every genre, from New Jack Swing to Classic Country. A feel-good party vibe follows him wherever he goes and here in Las Vegas (or wherever he travels to perform); his journey to bring real soul music back will never end. Date: Thursday, Jan. 19 Artist: Alex Christopher Time: 7 p.m. evening performance Cost: $15 Description: Alex Christopher was born in Las Vegas and is one of the most talented and promising young artists to burst onto the local entertainment scene. Noted for his powerful voice, he has performed throughout Las Vegas and now brings his vocal jazz and traditional pop style to The Lounge for two special performances. Guests can expect to hear standards including Stardust, My Way, I’ll Be Seeing You and more. Christopher began singing at an early age of 14 and one short year later declared that his love of singing would become his chosen career path. He opened the yellow pages and called many elderly homes and simply told them “I’m going to give you a free show” – thus starting his career. Christopher sings a large variety of music, but his primary focus is jazz – belting out not only the standards, but a mix of original songs as well.

His journey of self-expression includes music by innovative performers such as James Brown, Sammy Davis, Jr., Michael Jackson, and Frank Sinatra, as well as original tracks Faugno wrote himself. Rick Faugno has been performing professionally since the age of 12 when he played Will Rogers, Jr. in “Will Rogers Follies” on Broadway. Faugno went on to study acting and theatre, and earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from New York University. Since, his career has included such memorable shows as “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” “Fosse,” “Wonderful Town,” and “Conversations with My Father” on Broadway, as well as national tours of “The Boy Friend,” directed by Julie Andrews and “Jersey Boys,” in the critically acclaimed role of Frankie Valli.
