Greetings music lovers. Tonight at 8 pm in the South Point Showroom at the South Point Hotel and Casino in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada; Frankie Moreno the fastest rising star on the Strip is poised to bring the house down with his unique style of kick-ass, get up, get down and boogie-woogie, rock and roll, rhythm and funky blues piano.

Visitors and locals alike will be spellbound and captured by the musical spell of this young performer who effectively combines the musical talent and the onstage charisma of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley, Ray Charles, and Brian Setzer.  All of whom Frankie Moreno has rolled up and formed into his very own unique brand of music that will surely keep your toes a-tappin’ all night long.

I don’t get excited easily nor am I generally one who is easily impressed by a musician of any caliber, however; in the case of Frankie Moreno, I am willing to make an exception to that rule if only just this one time.

Having an extensive background in music in that I played in my school’s orchestra from the 4th through the 11th grades (percussion), played third chair marching snare in A Band Gold in my Junior year at Red Bluff Union High School when we played in Disneyland’s 25th-anniversary parade on Main Street.

My family is steeped in music and I am no exception to that rule whatsoever. I have studied the Master composers and I love every style of music from Beethoven to Eminem, to ZZ Top and everything in between. I have attended 60 live music concerts and seen even more top acts performing live on stages all over the United States, from California to Florida.

That being said; I ‘ve spent the past few days, (ever since I was first invited by Mr. David Lamer to come and review Frankie’s show tonight), listening to his music and watching his music video’s on YouTube. Although it might be a bit premature to say so I have to tell you, folks, that judging by what I have seen and heard so far Frankie Moreno is the real McCoy. Not only can he play but man can this kid can sing.

If his music doesn’t get your feet moving I respectfully submit that you might want to check your pulse and make sure it’s still pulsing. Better yet just run to the phone and dial 911 while you still can.

I have been advised that I should bring my dancing shoes so I promised Mr. Lamer that I’d (maybe) take my spurs off of them. But, then again, South Point is an equestrian venue so I just might find myself riding or dancing with a horse. In which case, no respectable cowboy should ever be without them. It’s simply un-American.

I am genuinely looking forward to tonight’s performance and I hope to see y’all there as well when the show starts at 8:00 pm. Tickets for this evening’s performance range from $25 to $35 and limited seating is still available as this goes to press.
