It seems like Tune Sweets has actually been one of Las Vegas’ most identifiable performers given that she arrived from New York City in 2011 to carry out in the acclaimed Absinthe at Caesars Palace. That’s probably due to the fact that the small burlesque star with the huge, soulful voice pops up all over town to support her fellow entertainers and take part in charitable events, something she states has been simple to do.
“The artist community here invited me with open arms,” Sweets states. “When you first come, you are led by exactly what you currently think about [Las Vegas], the ‘exactly what occurs here.’ It took me a minute to see this is an actually fantastic place which the neighborhood wanted to reveal that, and it made me fall in love with Las Vegas.”
She’s bringing a seasonal edition of her Sugary foods’ Spot show back to the Smith Center’s Cabaret Jazz this month, a Halloween-flavored magnificent with a 10-piece band, huge burlesque names like Kalani Kokonuts and LouLou D’vil and, for the very first time in this venue, boy-lesque performers.
“This is my fourth show, and it’s an honor to be able to play there,” Sugary foods says. “I did the first burlesque the Smith Center ever had. The room is just spectacular, and it’s the best place to bring that sense of old Vegas meets brand-new Vegas.”
If vintage performance like the kind in which Sweets specializes sounds like something various for the Downtown carrying out arts center, she concurs. “For the first program I was a bit nervous about bringing burlesque there, due to the fact that I wished to ensure it’s sophisticated and still edgy, beautiful but still naughty. Trying to tread that line was a bit nerve-wracking. However the audience liked it and they asked me back, so I figured they loved it, too.” The Sweets’ Area at Myron’s Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center, October 24.
