Great American Songbook Entertainer, Elijah Rock is a new resident to our village of Las Vegas. I first spotted this talented young man when I dropped by to say hello to Dennis Bono at the South Point Hotel & Casino, during the taping of his weekly variety show. I was really impressed and, yes, I will be attending Elijah’ show this Friday, Nov.16 at the Italian American Club. It’s great to have a new voice to listen to in our little village.
Remember Casablanca? Remember songs woven with romance and rhythm and… magic? The remarkable Elijah Rock, who also tap dances in his show, delivers those timeless songs with an ease that may remind you of the great “crooners” like Billy Eckstine, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Nat King Cole. You can also toss in the greatest “crooner” of all time, Bing Crosby to this list.
Think classic Las Vegas, stiletto heels and secrets shared over cocktails. There will be just one performance at 8:00 p.m. with tickets priced at $25.00, first-come-first-seated. You will listen to such unforgettable songs like “Our Love is Here to Stay,” “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” and the classical hit “Nessun Dorma” by this award-winning entertainer.
The live band, under the direction of Uli Geissendoerfer on piano, consists of Bob Sachs on Bass, Jakubu Griffin on Drums, and Jake Langley on Guitar. Elijah’s special guest will be Donny Most, best remembered at Ralph Malph from the hit T.V. show “Happy Days,” who is not only an outstanding actor, but who knew he was also an accomplished singer. in his own right.
