Six exceptional Las Vegas entertainers have been inducted into the Las Vegas Entertainers Hall of Fame and Museum. They were honored on January 28, 2015 at the Mad Greek Café in Las Vegas for their individual talent and contributions of their fabulous talent they bring to the showrooms and stages. These are individuals that have contributed their talents to bring joy to everyone. The first entertainer I want to honor is Dondino who arrived in Las Vegas in1980 and started performing in the Lounge in the Frontier Hotel. When they closed the lounge he went Downtown to the Four Queens. What started out as a few weeks booking ended up to playing there for 13 years. He then went to Branson MO and opened his own theater there. Then three years ago he came back to our town and has made Las Vegas his home again and was officially welcomed home by the Italian American Club. The Hall of Fame plaque honors Dondino as a Headliner. We all love the handsome and talented Dondino with his sweet loving voice. http://lasvegas. dondino-has-finally-come-back- home-to-las-vegas/
