The Veterans Hit Las Vegas

Sometimes it's amazing just how long some artists can last, but a lot of times when you see what they have accomplished it's no surprise.

Singer/musician Diane Schuur kicked off November at the Boulder Station Hotel on the 2nd with her mainstream approach and top notch musicality. She has definitely set a standard for herself, and for the jazz industry as well.

Burt Bacharach, songwriter, arranger, Oscar and Grammy winner, brings his song catalog of hits to perform at the Orleans Hotel for four big nights, November 10-13.

Al Jarreau, Grammy winner, and another ageless veteran of smooth jazz, contemporary jazz, pop, and R & B, sets foot on the mainroom stage of the Suncoast Hotel showroom November 11-13.

One artist, guitarist Peter White, who is still building his mountain of artistry in his career, will be hosting a great holiday show at the UNLV Performing Arts Center. It's the Peter White Christmas Show, Friday, November 25th, with special guest, the very saxy sounds of Mindi Abair.

Saxophonist Paul Taylor, who just keeps coming with the hits, more so now than ever before, rarely performs at home. But the Santa Fe Hotel will be hosting one night with Paul on December 10th.

It's a month where quality matters, and not quantity.
