America’s Got Talent celebrity magician Murray SawChuck’s “Begging for Magic” charity red carpet show brought a line-up of many celebrities starring in local shows.
Walking the red carpet, a man who stands-out in a crowd, Paul Shortino looked as though he was about to appear in his “Raiding the Rock Vault” at the Westgate Resort.
He is a rock singer and musician who has sung with Rough Cut, The Cutt and Quiet Riot. Westgate is the new name of what began as the International Hotel, then the Las Vegas Hilton and most recently the Las Vegas Hotel. As Paul feels, “This is the where Elvis performed so we are lucky to be on the same stage.
Paul explained about the “Raiding the Rock Vault” show. “Everybody in the show is from the ‘70s and ‘80s and we are all from different bands doing music from great artists from the ‘60s to 1989. This is the story of classic rock.
We seldom perform any of our own songs that we recorded.
I just want to mention how great Murray’s show is and what a great human being. He an his wife Chloe and me and my wife, Carmen, do a lot of appearances to help animal charities. We will appear at the SPCA this Sunday at Sam’s Town. Everybody reach out and give a hand to help.”
The red carpet was filled with celebrities. Maren Wade performs in several shows and still has time to walk the red carpet. With touring in “America’s Favorite Dumb Blonde” show and filling in for dancers in “Fantasy”, she happily announced her new column in the Las Vegas Weekly. Now Maren can review her own shows! Just joking!
Maren commented, “It’s called Confessions of a Showgirl. One week I wrote the truth behind the girl inside the cake. I was excited to be inside the cake waiting to jump out but they forgot about me. I was stuck inside all night inside the cake.
My latest article discussed 50 shades of tan. They have an interesting take on it. This was a psychological study on the preferences of body make up.”
I interviewed another beautiful lady, Sara Jessica Rhodes, along the red carpet. Sara appears in Raiding the Rock Vault. She feels, “The show brings back the memories people have of the ‘60s. They relive their youth.” Usually Sara performs as a singer but she is acting and dancing in this show. Sara does it all.
Comedian and writer for Benny Hill, Lenny Windsor (Laugh Factory) walked the red carpet. Originally from Great Britain, Lenny commented, “I have no topics, I just go out there and insult people; I am an entertainment insultant.”
Originally from England, Lenny lives in Las Vegas now. America’s Got Talent celebrity magician Murray SawChuck appears in the Tropicana, at 4 P. M.
