Greetings sports fans and welcome to another beautiful Finally-it’s- Friday here in lovely sun-drenched Las Vegas, Nevada. Turning now to the wonderful world of live entertainment let me tell you about last night at the South Point Hotel and Casino’s Showroom where Frankie Moreno really wowed the audience.
By a show of hands at Frankie’s request, the number of people in attendance last night were there for the second time. Or more as in my own case. Last night was my 3rd time going to see Frankie and the band perform live at South Point and I was not disappointed in the least.
With my best friend, Jason in tow we arrived early to find a flurry of activity buzzing around the entrance to the Showroom. This flurry was centered mostly around the fearless leader of the Frankie Moreno Army, Kathy Cornelius and the ladies who run the fan-stand. My good friend and local real estate maven extraordinaire, David Lamer was there already, streaming live video feeds from the casino floor.
I got caught in one of those and all I can say is that if I didn’t come off like a total dork it certainly wasn’t for lack of trying.
The music was great and the crowd was awesome as always. Many very nice people were in attendance last night including Mrs. Nevada, the very lovely Mrs. Yelena Anter, and her court could be seen dancing in front of the stage along with myself and a bunch of other folks who seemed to be enjoying the music and themselves immensely. I know I did so anyone who feels like they did not
Last night was fan appreciation night and the FMA thought to give away a few prizes prior to drawing for the autographed guitar but that this was another one of those so well thought out plans that went astray was quickly in evidence.
Why yes, my phone’s camera does suck. Thank you for asking.
After having drawn a bunch of tickets whose owners all live out of state, drawing, Kathy Cornelius’s ticket once and another girl’s ticket twice which BTW got her booed by the entire audience who seemed to feel like the drawing was rigged. I did, however, admit that I felt bad about booing too because I do know that she would not have wanted for that to happen nor did she want any of the offered prizes. I hope she took it all in the spirit of fun which I believe it was intended by everyone; myself included.
Frankie’s parents were in attendance last night as they have been every night that I’ve seen the show, as were many locals and tourists alike. The raffle for the Frankie Moreno autographed guitar signed by Frankie and all of the members of the band.
Frankie is starting a Scholarship Fund for the Nevada School of the Arts. He will raffle off this guitar signed by the entire band on Saturday, May 26th on his Facebook page. Tickets are $5.00 each or 25 tickets for $100. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the Scholarship Fund. You may purchase tickets at his upcoming shows through May 24th or by going to the contact page at; frankiemorenofanclub.com for information.
