Arts, and its wonderful Cabaret Jazz venue, where she will present her
Annual Christmas Show, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Dec. 20-22.
Martin will take the audience on a musical sleigh ride, filled with
classic yuletide tunes, and songs honoring her legendary father, Dean
Martin, and other great performers like Dean’s pals, Frank and Sammy.
Deana offers a toast to the Holidays with some of the greatest songs
Deana achieved success early in her career in films, theater and
television, then quickly added to her repertoire — recording artist,
best-selling author, nationally syndicated radio host, licensed pilot,
and entrepreneur. As an internationally acclaimed entertainer, hit
recording artist, and an in-demand performer playing to sold-out
audiences worldwide, Deana has become an instantly recognizable voice
and figure in the pantheon of American singers. Her “ White Christmas”
was another chart buster, released in 2011, and stayed on the Top 10
chart throughout the entire Christmas season. Deana will sing a number
of her favorite songs from the Christmas album. Martin just released
her latest album, “ Destination Moon,” which includes a very special
song, “True Love,” a duet featuring her dad, Dean. It is available by
going to Deana’s website or ITunes.
Seeing Deana Martin in a live performance, you get the sense that
there is nothing she cannot do. At The Smith Center, Deana will sing
many of the Christmas songs she grew up listening to when her dad and
his buddies (Frank and Sammy) would get together to celebrate
Christmas. Tickets, ranging from $37 to $59 may be purchased by
calling the Smith Center box office, 702-749-2000.

ROBIN THICKE TO PERFORM AT THE PEARL
Soul and R&B crooner, responsible for the “song of the summer,” Robin
Thicke will start New Year’s Eve week in Las Vegas with a performance
at The Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on Dec. 29, 2013 at 8 p.m.
Tickets start at $80, plus any additional service fees.
This past summer marked the debut of Robin Thicke’s highly anticipated
sixth studio album, Blurred Lines (Star Trak/Interscope Records). The
collection debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 while, “Blurred
Lines,” the single, continued its 12-week reign on the Billboard Hot
100 chart making Robin the first artist to take the top spot on both
lists since December 2012 and only the 17th act to earn the
distinction in the past ten years. “Blurred Lines” scored the highest
audience ever recorded and broke records by climbing to #1 on 5 radio
charts simultaneously (Top 40, Rhythm, Urban, Hot AC & Urban AC) — the
first time this has ever been done by an artist. New York Magazine
called the album, “ A great record. Period,” while Rolling Stone said,
“Robin Thicke sings, writes, produces, plays keyboard and even raps a
little on his excellent sixth album.” The second single off of the
album, “Give It 2 U” featuring Kendrick Lamar, is available now.
Robin Thicke has established himself as one of the most respected
singer-songwriters in soul and R&B music today. The musician,
composer, and actor, released his critically acclaimed debut album, A
Beautiful World , in 2003 under the name “Thicke.” Soon after, he came
out with his breakthrough second release, 2006’s The Evolution Of
Robin Thicke . Now on the way to double platinum status, Evolution’s
mega hit “Lost Without U” became the #1 most played song in Urban
Adult Contemporary BDS and topped four Billboard charts
simultaneously. The award-winning multiplatinum superstar returned to
center stage in 2008 with Something Else , a joyful and modern tribute
to the ’70s soul and pop records that have inspired an extraordinary
career. Revered by critics as one of the best soul albums in years,
this ’70s-inspired album dealt with racism, poverty and love in the
hits “Dreamworld,” “Magic,” and “The Sweetest Love.” In December of
2009 Robin released Sex Therapy . The title song was hailed by critics
as “the sexiest song of the year.” Robin’s fifth studio album, Love
After War was released in December of 2011. For more information,
please visit www.robinthicke.com.
Doors at the Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. The
Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended
hours on select event days. Follow The Pearl on Twitter at
