Linda Suzanne’s Rockin’ Vegas Christmas show started with a clever, very funny videotape which provided a chance to meet all of the cast. Her opening production number had all the pizzazz of “The Casino de Paris” show at the Dunes! Linda sang a swingin’ “Jingle Bells” as she joined her two male and two female dancers moving across the Westgate’s extremely large stage.
Linda Suzanne proved she was a star singing song after song in her dynamite fashion!
Linda kept surprising the audience with original numbers as she performed a humorous routine with the Sexy Santa from Down Under! She explained, “People go to see the “Nutcracker Suite” for Christmas, but mine is kind of like “Thunder from Down Under”.”
This was truly Christmas Vegas-Style adding different jazzed-up Christmas songs and different view of the holidays.
One of the “Rockin’ Vegas” dancers, Dani Elizabeth Flahive usually performs in the sexy “Crazy Girls” show (Planet Hollywood) and she flawlessly adapted to the rockin’ dances of tonight’s music.
Linda’s Celebrity guest, comedian/magician, “AMERICA’S GOT TALENT” Murray SawChuck (Tropicana) and his side-kick Douglas “Lefty” Leferovich brought their acts to the stage. Murray and “Lefty” were so impressive, I will discuss them in my next article.
Of course, there were many of the holiday classics, a five-piece band, two back-up singers, a 20’ Christmas tree, and plenty of festive decorations around the band and across the stage. Linda brought the feeling of the holidays to the happy audience.
I was impressed with Linda Suzanne’s show at the South Point Hotel (2017) when she mixed into her musical depths with the “Legendary Divas of Pop” including Donna Summer, Adele, Gloria Estefan, Whitney Houston, Connie Francis, Linda Edder, Pink, Linda Ronstadt, Carol King and many others. Now her talents have grown
