REVIEW

Danny Gans at The Mirage
[ HOME | SHOWROOMS | HEADLINERS | STUFF YOU GOTTA TRY | FORUMS | LINKS ]
. .  

Imagine a concert where over 60 of your favorite singers all perform in 90 minutes. The bookings alone would cost a fortune, and trying to get all those egos to agree to 45 second sets would be tough.

Fortunately, an answer has been found ('cause I know you were all looking for one) and Danny Gans is it. His powerful one-man show opens at full speed with Michael Jackson moonwalking into a version of "You are Not Alone", and rarely decelerates as a rapid-fire collection of crooners graces the stage.

Gans showcases his well-developed singing voice with male and female artists and completes the effect with carefully copied mannerisms. During a tribute to the Apollo Theater, he delivers a dead-on Sammy Davis Jr. that fully captures his energy and style without ever being over-the-top.

A rendition of "The Twelve Months of Christmas" (performed by various celebrities, of course) was a little to cute for me, but every time I see the show that segment gets such an enthusiastic response I'm inclined to believe I'm a minority on that one.

Though I mention it last, the 3-man combo that backs Gans provides a backbone that proves to be as rock-solid as it is unobtrusive. Gans is never overshadowed by his back-up, but he's also never at a loss for support - musically or vocally.

Mention should also go to the sound and lighting designs that, once again, provide ample support but don't get in the way. I like to see shows that make me feel like my time was well spent - and this show does that so well, I keep returning again and again. Once you see Danny Gans in action, you'll also be begging for more.

After the show why not get the adrenalin flowing again with an Adventure of a Life Time while in Las Vegas click here.. Vegas tours
