  • Character Study

    The Pony Players

    By Andy Samuelson

    When Animal Kingdom made a late charge against Shackleford in the Preakness Stakes, a cheer went up in the Green Valley Ranch Race & Sports Book. But the familiar wafts of cigar smoke from the VIP section of the book were nowhere to be seen. “I don’t deal with crowds,” says a smiling Greg Peters, who had placed his bet on Animal Kingdom and headed home well before the “once-a-year” horse bettors showed up for an afternoon of dollar beers and hot dogs.

    Brohemian Rhapsody

    By Jarret Keene

    When you’re listening to the uplifting world music-influenced folk-pop of the Makepeace Brothers, you can’t help but feel you should be soaking in the trio’s new album, Slow Down Feel Love, on a California beach as you watch the sun melt into the ocean. And when you’re a writer interviewing vocalist/guitarist Finian Makepeace via cell phone and you hear the crash of the surf and cry of seagulls and he says, “I’m just hanging out at Venice Beach,” and, “Cool, I just saw a seal in the water,” you wonder: Is it a music career or a lifestyle for these guys?

  • The Deal

    Where to go Mad

    By Anthony Curtis

    “Where should we go to watch the March Madness tournament?” I’m asked this question a lot this time of year. The easy answer is, it doesn’t matter—every sports book and casino bar in town will be jumping. But that advice can be refined.

    One Month’s Rent

    When asked to describe the upcoming revival of Rent at Green Valley Ranch, the show’s producer, Andrew Wright, as you might expect, quickly launched into superlatives. The new show is “insane, absolutely amazing” and will “blow the roof off Ovation,” the showroom at Green Valley Ranch.

    Bronson directs saxophonist Andrew Friedlander. Lon Bronson wants us to get in our “hot tub time machine and go back to 1967 and … walk around every single hotel on the Strip and see Don Rickles, free in the lounge; Buddy Rich Band, free; Louis Prima, free; Louis Armstrong with Ella Fitzgerald for free.”

    Layers of Sweet Sound

    By Aly DeYoung

    Do you know a band that plays Fresh Prince of Bel-Air lyrics to the tune of Sweet Home Alabama? Well, you do now. The Jeremy Cornwell Project, an eclectic rock duo comprised of Michael Quarantello on keyboard and Jeremy Cornwell on guitar, is known for their mixture of cover songs, original material and a certain level of quirkiness. Their sound is rhythmic, energetic and catchy, but in a laid-back jam band type of way.
