Dick Feeney and Darin Feinstein invited the media to a cocktail reception at the El Dorado Cantina, followed by a live performance of MJ Live in the Crown Theatre at The Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino on July 1, 2014. MJ Live is a Michael Jackson Tribute Show that features four tribute artists, Jalles Franca, Michael Firestone, Tony Kouns, J. Dean, the talented MJ Live tribute band and fabulous back up dancers.

The evening started at the El Dorado Cantina, which is in “Sapphire’s Gentlemen’s Club” where we were served fabulous food and drinks and had a chance to meet some of the MJ Live tribute artists. Jalles Franca was the featured MJ for the evening show and also on hand was Michael Firestone and Tony Kouns who mingled and enjoyed the reception with the media and V.I.P’s.

Dick Feeney, Darin Feinstein and Eddie Griffin announced before the show that the proceeds for the evening’s performance would benefit the two officers and the civilian that were killed last month. Eddie Griffin spoke of his support of the police officers and then gave the audience a taste of some of his comedic talent, which we all love so much.  Eddie Griffin has a show in the Kings Room at The Rio Sunday through Wednesday at 7:30pm, a must see show that will keep you laughing for over an hour or more, depending on how much time Eddie wants to be  on the stage.

Jalles Franca came to the U.S. from Brazil and at age 21 started a seven year residency at Studio 54. Jalles began to pay tribute to Michael Jackson after his passing. Jalles won many contests as “Best Michael Impersonator” “Best Overall Look” and “Best Moonwalk” and thrilled audiences from Las Vegas to Dubai.

I ended the evening back at El Dorado Cantina and spent some time with my good friend Eddie Griffin and then to a private table at Sapphire’s, compliment of Darrin Feinstein.  Thank you Darrin.
