VCO Weekly Giveaway Winners


The Scintas   Barbra & Frank
The Scintas offer music and comedy with a twist. The show combines comedy, great singing and music with off-the-wall impressions. If you're looking for laughs and fun, the Scintas are the show.

WINNER  Michael Buckley

  A fun evening with arguably two of the best Streisand/Sinatra impersonators. This tantalizing
show gives a glimpse at what it could have been
like for Barbra and Frank to team up.
 "The Concert that Never Was" is at the Riviera.

WINNER  Martin Collins

Earl Turner    Jay White
For the hour and 15 or so minutes of the Earl Turner show, Turner runs, dances, sings, jokes, mugs, high-fives and does whatever necessary to move the audience.
 Earl Turner at the Palace Station.

WINNER  Robyn Ruelas


Tribute to Neil Diamond at the Riviera Hotel.
For Jay's entire career, his image has reflected one
of America's brightest stars with an uncanny
likeness to Neil Diamond.

 Jay IS America's Favorite Neil Diamond.

WINNER  Youssef Shoushanian

Larry G Jones   Las Vegas 51s
Larry G Jones, Unlike most impressionists Jones can readily switch his voice from men to women and back again. Larry's mannerisms and vocalizations are dead-on, it is his comical parodies that set him apart.
Larry is at Fitzgerald's.


  Our own 51s are awarding 2 tickets
every week
to a 51s home game.

WINNER Dan Ingster
