My Favorite Show

Former ’NSync member Joey Fatone’s fun personality shines in his guest-hosting gig for The Price is Right Live! at Bally’s (2:30 and 7:30 p.m., through Sept. 25., $54.50, 967-4567). Fatone has enough experience performing to know what he likes to see in Vegas. And he likes a lot:

I have seen O, I’ve seen Mystère, I’ve seen Zumanity; it was really fun. Amazing Johnathan I’ve seen before, which I think is great; I love him. Carrot Top is a great friend of mine; I’ve seen his show a bunch of times. If you want the old school Vegas, you go to Jubilee. You see Jersey Boys if you want a great musical where you know a lot of the songs.

Actually, the show I saw a bunch of times was The Scintas. It’s a great show, great family, just a lot of fun. It’s cool because you got the two screw-ups, Frank and Joe, and their sister who does a lot of ballads. Frankie is a talented guy; he plays almost every instrument and does a bunch of impersonations. I can relate to them. They are from Buffalo, N.Y. I’m from New York, as well. They are an Italian family and that whole kind of thing, so it’s pretty cool.

The Scintas perform a Christmas show Dec. 3-5 at the Suncoast.

Dreams in the Key of Jazz

Michael Frey, owner of Rhumbar at The Mirage, decided that he wanted to add a jazz night to his Strip bar’s weekly schedule, but the question of who would be the resident jazz master lingered. Then one night, Frey walked into the Seven Seas and chanced upon the musician he had been seeking. At the historic venue Frey heard a 78-year-old saxophonist play. Hearing his music, Frey knew that he’d found the man to helm Rhumbar’s jazz night. “They were such great musicians, it was like walking into a time warp into Vegas in 1958,” Frey says.
