starring Becc Sanderson and the Counsellors, Missy Malone, The Vegas Cabaret & Burlesque Revue, Gypsy Charms, Lady Carol, Hustle, Bruce Devlin plus your Vegas regulars Frankie Sumatra, Bugsy Seagull and Dino Martini, Nikki Nevada and the Vegas Showgirls, The Fabulous Scott Sisters and You!
Hey there, sinners and swingers, you are cordially invited to join us at the hippest, hottest summit meeting of swing and sophistication since Frank, Dino, Sammy and the rest of the Rat Pack tore the roof off the Sands Casino, Las Vegas back in the day - The Vegas Grand Hogmanay Ball!
What better way to say farewell to 2017, and welcome in 2018, than with a scintillating soiree of vivaciousness & va-va-voom; blackjack & burlesque; glitz & glamour; roulette & romance; moonlight & martinis; hedonism & hi-jinks; champagne & cabaret. Add a twist of sophistication, a hint of Marilyn magic, a shot of JFK's Camelot-era cool and a sprinkling of Rat Pack razzmatazz, a killer line-up of DJs, MCs, burlesque artists, cabaret performers and live musicians, and of course, the most important ingredient - yourself – and you have the intoxicating cocktail of cool that is The Vegas Hogmanay Ball!
We’re taking over every nook and cranny of this labyrinthine palace of entertainment : the Ballroom, Speakeasy, American bar, French Quarter, Main Bar and Restaurant providing ideal environments and intimate hideaways for dancing and romancing, carousing and celebrating, dining and imbibing in style as we say farewell to 2017.
It is our great pleasure to welcome back to the Vegas stage, by popular acclaim, for the fourth year in succession, the incandescent star of La Clique at The Famous Spiegeltent, Becc Sanderson and her band, The Counsellors. Expect more of their classic lounge stylings: smooth, tart, with a twist of kitsch and a kicker of mischief. With fabulously playful arrangements of classic pop standards from the last 50 years (Gnarls Barkley, Dusty Springfield, Nancy Sinatra et al.), Becc Sanderson and The Counsellors are set to swing your world, all the way into 2018!
And a warm Vegas welcome back to Scotland’s very own Queen of Burlesque, the bewitching and beautiful Missy Malone. Fresh from sell-out headline shows around the world, Missy will delight and dazzle you with her glamorous gyrations and terpsichorean talents!
But of course The Counsellors and Missy Malone aren’t the only stellar talents in this Night of a Thousand Stars. Marvel to the vocal and ukulele talents of Lady Carol, who has performed at the Sydney Opera House, wonder at Edinburgh’s own tantalising temptress and hostess with the mostest, Gypsy Charms, thrill to the terpsichorean talents of our fabulous dance troupe Hustle and welcome Scottish comedy sensation Bruce Devlin! The Vegas Cabaret and Burlesque Revue will showcase the best in cabaret and burlesque talent in The Speakeasy (with an hour long show from 10.30 pm).
There will be dancing into the wee sma’ hours to the exotic rhythms, intoxicating melodies and irresistible dance-floor grooves of Vegas musical maestros Frankie Sumatra, Bugsy Seagull, Dino Martini, and our very special guest, Tall Paul from the fabulous Go Go club. Hipster swing, hepcat jive, gangster grooves, beguiling bossa nova, luscious lounge, sanctified soul, fired-up funk, electro swing, rockin’ R&B, blues, boogaloo, dancefloor jazz, cult classics & mob hits are just a few of the choice cuts on the musical menu for your dancing pleasure.
And just in case there wasn’t enough glitz, glamour, razzmatazz and va-va-voom already, Nikki Nevada & the Vegas Showgirls will turn the Fabulousness Factor all the way up to eleven and shake their tail-feathers most delightfully. These sultry sirens combine the sophistication of the salons of Paris with the sassiness of the Vegas strip. And of course we can’t forget the hustlers, card sharks and wild cards at the Stardust Casino Lounge, presided over by the Fabulous Scott Sisters and located in the French Quarter - a hint of the Big Easy in the heart of Sin City - the only casino where you can gamble the night away at the roulette and blackjack tables without fear of losing your shirt, courtesy of our complimentary Elvis dollars.
Scotland's award-winning retro club night presents an evening of cocktails and cool, showgirls and swing, roulette and romance with DJs Frankie Sumatra, Bugsy Seagull, plus Nikki Nevada & The Vegas Showgirls, and The Fabulous Scott Brothers.
Frankie Sumatra, Bugsy Seagull, and the gang will be spinning a scintillating selection of hip tracks for hepcats, swingin' sounds for hipsters, luscious lounge, jumpin' jive, rockin' R&B and sanctified soul for your lindy-hoppin', finger-poppin' delectation and delight. Nikki Nevada & the Vegas Showgirls will be shaking their tail-feathers most delightfully and bringing some glitz, glamour & va-va-voom to the Voodoo Rooms and the Fabulous Scott Brothers croupiers will be presiding over the roulette and blackjack tables in the Stardust Casino Lounge.
