Sundays at Bugsy's Speakeasy

Sunday afternoons are usually spent preparing for the week ahead, even in the Entertainment Mecca that is Las Vegas. However, if one were looking for something different, with a live music flavor, they don't have to go far.

Bugsy's Speakeasy, located on 6145 W Sahara, now features a Sunday afternoon treat of big band proportions.

SuperBand is a 18-piece orchestra, made up of local jazz musicians, looking to bring back the big band standards of the past. They feature local guest vocalists, such as Michaelina Bellamy, a long time local jazz singer/entertainer, fellow jazz vocalist, Lou Martinez and others.

While the ten dollar cover for adults (five for students), is more like a donation, the musicians play "as a labor of love", says Bellamy, who is also the event organizer. "This is a opportunity for jazz musicians in the area to keep playing, in a town that no longer uses big orchestras."

The band plays from 3:30 to 6:30 PM Sunday afternoons. For those that want to nosh while they swing, Bugsy's also offers an excellent lunch menu,  as well as a full service bar.  For more information, call Bugsy's directly at 702-834-6829
