Artisan is More than Afterhours

   Guitar and Vocals at Artisan on Friday, July 22


Melissa Henegan, one of my past managers while I was employed at Citibank, has invited me to her and her husband’s performance on Friday, July 22 so Come Join us for a Night of Smooth Jazz!! Michael says, ” I love all types of music but the funky romantic vibe and musicianship of Smooth Jazz speaks to me. I began playing guitar and taking private lessons when I was about 7 years old and continued studying guitar and music becoming a Guitar Major at Howard Univ. Washington D.C. in Jazz Studies after High School. Living in Las Vegas for the past 20 years I’ve played it all and been on stage with some of the best: From Billy Paul, Hazel Payne/A Taste Of Honey, and Las Vegas headliners Human Nature to Pamela Williams, and Mindy Abair. I’ve been performing recently as a soloist with Carnival Cruise Lines doing Smooth Jazz arrangements with vocals of everything from Marvin Gaye and Sade, to the incredible Stevie Wonder and Earth Wind & Fire. Channeling Wes Montgomery, George Benson and Peter White when the mood is right, to soaring screaming solos in the music of Stevie Ray Vaughn, Santana and Prince. Music just like so many of the Arts can touch the heart and soul. Each and every time I perform it’s so important to me to do just that. It’s my job… and I love my job!”

Monday through Thursday the ARTISAN is a quiet Las Vegas boutique hotel retreat that’s great for business and leisure travelers. Friday through Sunday is all about decadent excess with non-stop weekend parties and Artisan Nightlife!

I am a Creative Warrior in Las Vegas who is helping to protect the West Coast from Adultitis! Adultitis is a plague which often leads to feelings of Loneliness, Failure, etc. Just like myself, these feelings can then lead to worse. I believe that to overcome this plague, we must go back to basics and find joy in which we used to. Many people use to refer to Vegas as Disney for Adults but lately it feels as though we may be moving away from this. I say that it is Time to Relax, Have Fun, and Feel Young Again! Ask About My Nocturnal Vegas Game Plan, especially Vegas Themed Fantasy Parties and Transportation! My sister said it best when she told me how much she disliked Vegas when she lived here in the 90s. She told me, 'Vegas was boring with nothing much to do besides gamble or nightclubs. It is an entirely different place these days' Message Me to Find Out for Yourself! - Troy - 702.981.1739
