Today the casinos opened their doors. Las Vegas is back…kind of.
We are still social distancing. Masks are still a must. But we are figuring out how to craft a new normal. Frankie Moreno and the City of North Las Vegas devised a unique way.
Here’s what they did.
The Craig Ranch Concerts
Craig Ranch is a landmark 170-acre park in North Las Vegas. I have a rent house in walking distance and watched the city build the park. It has everything!
That includes the 4.2 acre Craig Ranch Regional Park Amphitheater. The amphitheater currently seats 3,500 people. A huge canopy covers half the stage.
There are three tiers. The tier closest to the stage houses the seats. Then there are two lawn tiers for blankets (only.)
Except in these days of Covid-19, the performers will play a concert on the stage but there will be no one in the audience. Because, yes, the first concerts this summer are virtual.
Frankie Moreno is the park’s first virtual performer.
Who is Frankie Moreno and why do I love his shows?
He was a piano prodigy as a child. Two years ago he attempted to write one song a week for a year. And he did!
He’s had eight Top Ten Billboard albums, three at number one. He made music history as the only artist to have six albums reach a Top Ten spot on the Billboard charts in a 12-month span.
He has had an Emmy nomination. He performed at Carnegie Hall.
He is a live wire on stage. You get up and dance after the first few bars. He is a prankster and loves to do wild and crazy stunts on stage.
He has an ah-maz-ing voice. Did I say he was a piano virtuoso?
How does this work?
The six-piece band performs live. If you were in the park, you could hear the band but not Frankie. His voice goes directly into the Internet void.
The shows are every Thursday night at 8. Go to Frankie’s Facebook page: FrankieMorenoMusic. He will be performing live there.
Gibson Guitar is one of the sponsors of this show. Every week Frankie gives away a FREE guitar to one lucky listener.
Have a great week-end Las Vegas.
