SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMANCES
Date: Thursday, July 12
Artist: Alex Christopher
Time: 3 p.m. & 7 p.m.
Cost: $10 & $12, respectively
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.
