 TO HEADLINE AUTUMNFEST 2017

Special Guest Jami Duprey as Marilyn Monroe & Featuring a                       LIVE Swinging 12-piece Big Band

 

Las Vegas Headliner Brian Duprey is the only Sinatra tribute artist endorsed by Nancy Sinatra herself who mistakenly thought it was her Dad singing on Howard Stern Radio, but Howard quickly corrected her and said, “That's Brian Duprey!"  As an actor in the hit show "The Rat Pack is Back," Brian spent 10 years perfecting his craft in Las Vegas and in over 200 Performing Arts Centers and Casinos across the country. His lead role and creative development of the show built a 48 state tour and also secured the title of Best Tribute Show of Las Vegas in 2014.
 

Showered with awards and recognition for his live and recorded performances, Brian Duprey had his big break on FOX TV’s “Performing As,” where he won top prize by portraying his idol, Frank Sinatra.  Brian has been featured on CSI Las Vegas, The History Channel, NBA Allstar Jam, and the hit movie Get Him To The Greek. He also opened for the likes of Paul Anka and the cast of HBO’s Sopranos and wowed specials guests like Steve Wynn at The Smith Center in Las Vegas.

 

Brian Duprey’s portrayal of Frank Sinatra has received many great reviews

 

"He’s Got It Down!” - Nancy Sinatra

President Trump is repeating an assertion that he doesn't think the FBI wants to investigate a decades old allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Speaking at the White House today, Trump said -- "That's not what they do." He again accused Democrats of withholding information about the allegation until the 11th hour of the Senate confirmation process. The veteran federal judge has strongly rejected the allegation.       FEMA Administrator Brock Long says the next 48-hours in North Carolina are going to be incredibly critical following tropical depression Florence. Rivers are still expected to crest over the next few days and it will take a while for the water to recede. One of the main priorities of FEMA right now is to repair the infrastructure so that roads can re-open for first responders and power crews to get into affected areas.        President Trump is defending his order to release some classified material in the Russia investigation. Talking at the White House today, Trump called the probe a "terrible witch hunt" that has hurt the country. He said certain things should be opened up for people to see. Trump argued that some behavior in the FBI and the Justice Department has been disgraceful.        The murder of Iowa State golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena [[ SELL-ya BAR-kwin uh-ROZ-uh-MEE-nuh ]] is being investigated. Her body was found on Monday in the water by employees at the Coldwater Golf Links course. Police say they've arrested 22-year-old Collin Richards, a homeless man, on first-degree murder charges.        A new poll shows Ted Cruz' lead over Beto O'Rourke is growing. Quinnipiac [[ kwin-IP-pee-ack ]] University Poll says the Republican Cruz leads the Democrat O'Rourke 54-45 with one percent undecided. Polls from earlier this month showed the race for Cruz' U.S. Senate seat was almost neck and neck.       Julie Chen is officially leaving The Talk. She made the announcement in a videotaped message that aired on today's episode. Chen said she needed to spend more time at home with her husband and our young son. The announcement comes after her husband Les Moonves was ousted as head of the network over sexual misconduct allegations.
