Who knew?

I had heard that Hedy Lamarr was vehemently, even violently anti-Nazi.  Very interesting article.  Beauty, cunning, AND brains?


Until next time, Darlings!

Noir art

Hello Darlings,

I just stumbled on this fabulous artist. Niagara Detroit. Punk band singer and now pop artist, I love her stuff. Dangerous dames, double crosses, dark alleys. Check her out.

Cynics, hide your eyes. And ears.

Hello Darlings,

I have a VERY early Valentine's day offering for you romantics out there.  I can't get it to embed so it'll take you to the clip on YouTube.


xo, Darlings,

November doings

Hello Darlings,

It's hard to believe it's November already.  Though the temperatures here in Las Vegas are starting to make me believe it.  So, as we hurtle toward Winter, here is my current schedule of Las Vegas metro area shows and appearances.  You can still see me every thursday night at the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental in the 23rd floor sky lounge, with the New Jazz Testament.  I sing from 8:30 - 10:30, but the sublime jazz band led by Trumpet man Chandler Judkins plays from 7 -11.  Come for the music, come for the view, come for the delicious cocktails and small plate noshes, it's heaven. http://www.mandarinoriental.com/lasvegas/

Every second saturday (that's tomorrow, Dolls), I sing with the wailing Bruce Harper Big Band.  16 pieces of hard-swinging big band jazz.  If you've never heard a real big band live, you're in for a delight.   We're at the E String Grill from 2 - 4:40 pm, and there's a full menu so all ages are welcome.  We'll swing your socks off!  (Bring extra pair) http://www.estringlive.com/

The following weekend, the 18th, 19th, and 20th, I'll be Art Vargas' guest again in his "Vintage Vegas Live" production show.  This is always such a blast.  Art is a charismatic and dynamic performer, and it's a ball to share the stage with him.  His Swank Set orchestra lays it down like nobody's business, and Miss Amy thrills the audience, especially the front row men, with her dancing.  The music, style, and swank of classic Vegas lives on.  http://www.varjazz.com/categories/home/home.htm

Hope to see you out and about this month!  And please introduce yourselves, I love to meet the people who share the love for what I do.

Catfight with class

...and I am so using that line the first chance I get.  This is from Footlight Parade (1933), Joan Blondell fixed Claire Dodd's little red wagon!
