This June, James will headline a weeklong residency at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas from June 12-16. Last summer he joined O.A.R. on their 31-city nationwide tour and has performed over 700 shows in the past four years, including touring Australia four times.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas announces June Entertainment Performances

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 10, 2012 

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas announces

June ENTERTAINMENT performances 

LAS VEGAS – The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas continues its line-up of touring artists at casino floor hotspots Book & Stage, Bond, and The Chandelier with artist residencies through June. All performances are open to the public.

Book & Stage

A polished, masculine and comfortable setting, Book & Stage is a daytime live sports viewing lounge and by evening becomes a music performance-centric venue with popular acts.

The following acts will be performing at Book & Stage:

Allen Stone

From backwoods barbecues and community gatherings, Allen Stone emerges to share personal melodies, telling his tales of life after just 23 years. Getting his start singing at his father’s church in small-town America, it wasn’t until later when introduced to the greats of soul music (Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin) and then to the confessional lyrical fashion of the ‘60s – ‘70s singer/songwriters, did music begin to ignite intense passion, eventually carrying this boy to a musical home. Stone’s music is notable for his finely crafted evocative songs and fresh, smooth, soul-filled voice that certainly belies his age.

Friday, June 1 from 9:30PM – 10:15PM and 11:15PM – 12:00AM

Saturday, June 2 from 10:30PM – 12:00AM

Ryan Shaw

Growing up in Decatur, Ga., the only music Ryan Shaw was allowed to hear in his strict churchgoing mother’s house was contemporary gospel. The Shaw Boys – there were eight kids in all – sang in a family-oriented Pentecostal church. Now, Ryan Shaw has grown up and released his second full-length album, “Real Love,” which includes writing and producing credits as well. This album follows his 2008 debut album, “This Is Ryan Shaw,” which earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for the song “I Am Your Man.”

Tuesday, June 5 – Thursday, June 7 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

Friday, June 8 – Saturday, June 9 from 10:30PM – 12:00AM

Kelley James

On the road or in the studio, music for Kelley James is more than a passion. His reputation for delivering quick-witted lyrics over acoustic guitars, hip-hop beats and freestyle flows has developed a strong following from fans and media alike. Kelley, a California native, has released two full-length records and three EP’s.

Tuesday, June 12 – Thursday, June 14 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

Friday, June 15 – Saturday, June 16 from 10:30PM – 12:00AM

Otis Heat

Otis Heat is an alterna-funk rock trio from Portland, Ore., that began as the result of a near-fatal car crash in 2008 between singer-songwriter Sean O’Neill and drummer Adam Lucas in one car, and guitarist Mike Warner in the other. An elusive drifter named Otis Heat rescued the semi-conscious men from their hazardous cars and called for help. Post-crash, the individuals discussed music while lying in hospital beds. After leaving the hospital, O’Neill began playing bass for the band. Lucas departed and new drummer Scotty Gervais joined, bringing a high-octane punch to the group.

Tuesday, June 19 – Thursday, June 21 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

Graffiti6

The unlikely pairing of producer TommyD and singer/songwriter Jamie Scott began as an experiment neither thought would work and has grown into a pop project so refreshingly rule-free, a sense of adventure seeps from every song. Try to categorize Graffiti6 and you’re in trouble. You’ll certainly spot vintage soul influences, the pair’s shared love of Hendrix, folk and funk. You’ll hear house and hip hop beats destined to fill dance floors. At the heart of the songs are pop melodies you could sit down with a guitar and strum. But Graffiti6 doesn’t make music to be analyzed. From the moment they named their band, the pair’s main aim has been to have fun.

Friday, June 22 – Saturday, June 23 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

The Heavy

The Heavy continually cross genres as the unit is proud to be completely musically schizophrenic. From country to rhythm and blues, garage punk to rock and roll, Studio One to the Slums of Shaolin, you’ll find that The Heavy are indeed like a pack of chemists with the way that genres get cooked up, blended, stirred and then mixed, to create their own unique style of rock and roll.

Friday, June 29 – Saturday, June 30 from 10:30PM – 12:00AM

For more information and performance times, please call 702.698.7000. All dates, times and acts are subject to change without notice.

To request press credentials for any of the shows listed above, please visit http://bit.ly/CosmopolitanPress

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas features artists at the forefront of the touring world and emerging artists that will inspire the next musical movements coupled with spectacularly-designed, technology-driven venues. The excitement of live-music and sports action spills onto the casino floor from Book & Stage, an upscale sports and entertainment lounge, while live DJs fill the rhythmic and vibrant hot-spot Bond with the best in house-music. Finally, The Chandelier, a dramatic inhabitable three-story architectural wonder, created by 2 million luminous crystals, houses three unique bar experiences: high-energy hot spot, sophisticated cocktail retreat and inviting lounge. Perched high above The Las Vegas Strip, the Boulevard Pool is a multilevel pool experience by day and an intimate outdoor concert venue with unobstructed sightlines of both the stage and The Strip by night.
