Hot Club of Las Vegas

Downtown Cocktail Room, Oct. 22

Tucked away in the alley behind the bar, the local “gypsy jazz band” with a Latin vibe had the crowd moving their hips to songs off their album, Summer Score. Their performance was part of the two-day Las Vegas Unplugged Music Festival, and it was certainly the most exotic of the weekend. Pepe Jimenez thumped away on the box-shaped Peruvian percussion instrument called a cajón, while vocalist Noybel Gorgoy’s beautiful Cuban voice was spine-chilling. By 1 a.m., the funky five-piece had everyone on their feet clapping and dancing.

City Moves

Courtney Combs and Heather Sirois-Arnold met 12 years ago while dancing in a benefit show in Chicago. When they found themselves performing together again in Phantom—The Las Vegas Spectacular, they decided to join forces. The result is City Moves, a benefit concert without the artistic restrictions of a theme. Expect to see dancing, hip-hopping and even hand-balancing by entertainers from local dance companies and top Strip productions, including Phantom, Le Rêve, Peepshow and Viva Elvis.
