It was the gliz and glamour of old traditional Las Vegas as Mark O’Toole celebrated some of the stars and the music that made Las Vegas what it is today. The South Point showroom was a full house when we attended the second of two nights’ productions.
“Come Fly with Me” one of Sinatra’s memorable hits was a perfect opener as this 30-year Las Vegas veteran took the audience on musical journey back to memorable familiar music and singers. And from the get-go, Mark O’Toole could feel the love and affection from his fans. The show entitled Singing With The Big Bands had him backed by a 17 piece orchestra led by pianist/ Musical Director Vita Corimbi Drew.
“That’s Life” aptly describes the banter he shared with fans as he detailed bits of his life including his wins on Star Search and his brush with death. He put it all in and gave it his all and the crowd embraced him.
In addition to those pictured, friends attending included Dorothy Portnoy and Caricaturist to the Stars Neal Portnoy, Dana Day, Ryan Baker, Michael Grimm, Phillip Officer, Llynda Moore, Mark Gendel, Renee Hale and JD Drase, Writer Sam Novak, Ken Henderson of Notoriety Live, Jonas Vece, Sidro Armada, Marlene Ricci, Frankie Pizzaro, Michelle Murlin, Denita Asberry, and Peter Pavone.
