Ticket Prices: $15 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission

Artist Info: CEO of the Las Vegas Symphony Orchestra, Shea Arender takes on the lead singer role in an electrifying journey of harmony in the symphony orchestra celebration of the music of Elvis Presley. In recent years Shea’s notable production of the Harold Arlen estate musical, “The Wonderful Wizard of Song” (composer of Wizard of Oz soundtrack) has made him one of the youngest Executive Producers on or off-Broadway. Shea also made the First Grammy ballot in 2013 with his original holiday composition.

 

The King Symphonic is sure to be an extraordinary symphonic masterpiece due to the combined creative abilities of Shea and the legendary conductor/arranger Steve Rawlins of Los Angeles who has arranged for Madonna, Barry Manilow, and The Gershwins among many others. This new collaboration between Arender and Rawlins has created a unique blend of Rockabilly, Dixieland Jazz, Country, Blues, Gospel, and of course Rock N Roll into one amazing show. The music will inspire you, and the story will touch your heart as you sit back and absorb the unforgettable sights and sounds of this new musical adventure.

SANTA FE STATION

 

John Waite

Venue: Chrome Showroom

Genre: Pop/Rock

Date: Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $42.50 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission

Artist Info: Countless musicians of far lesser accomplishment have probably made similar statements regarding their own personal creative process, but when the confession comes from John Waite – whose been successfully writing, recording and performing some of the most listenable, enduring and appreciated popular music for more than 35 years – one cannot help but both recognize and marvel at the shimmering legacy of this British born rock star.

 

The ride began when Waite was tapped as bassist and lead vocalist for the Babys who rocketed to Top 20 chart positions with a pair of infections hits, “Isn’t it Time” from the band’s sophomore LP, Broken Heart in 1977 and the monster ballad, “Every Time I Think of You” off 1978’s Head First. But it was the album’s rhythmically aggressive and seductive title track where fans got their first glimpse of the authentic John Waite, a no-holds-barred rock n’ roll performer devoted heart and soul to live performance and making sure every fan in the audience left the concert hall just as elated and exhausted as the band they’d paid to see.

 

Since returning to the recording studio and concert trek as a solo artist in 1995, John has produced a string of solid, existentially eccentric, courageously eclectic and blisteringly electric rock n’ roll records, including 1995’s Temple Bar, 1997’s When You Were Mine, 2001’s Figure in a Landscape, 2004’s The Hard Way, 2006’s Downtown: Journey of a Heart and 2010’s In Real Time –an extraordinary live recording that featured burning in-concert realizations of the Baby’s “Change”, “Back on My Feet Again” and “Head First”, not to mention Bad English’s “Best of What I’ve Got” as well as a mind-blowing cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll.” It was this lifelong passion for original Country that inspired John’s sensational 2006 duet with bluegrass legend, Allison Krauss, where the two combined honeysweet vocal forces to remake his international hit, “Missing You.” On February 5, 2007, they performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. His latest album, Rough & Tumble, was released in 2011.
This is an all-ages show; those under 21 must be accompanied by an adult

 

Dennis Wise – “King For a Night”

Venue: Chrome Showroom

Genre: Tribute

Date: Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $15 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission

Artist Info: Dennis Wise began listening to Elvis at the tender age of 5, often belting out his favorite song “Heartbreak Hotel.” His tribute to Elvis turned professional just one year after the King’s death, when he auditioned as an impersonator in Florida and was given the job halfway into his first song. With more than 10,000 shows under his belt, Wise has been deemed one of the top three Elvis impersonators by the legendary Dick Clark. Over the course of time, he has performed on shows including “Good Morning America,” “Today,” “Oprah” and “American Bandstand,” among others.
