Susan Anton at Cabaret Jazz in The Smith Center

Last weekend, Tiffany and I were invited by close friends Jeff and Susan to come see Susan at the Smith Center. She performed her show on Friday and Saturday nights in the Cabaret Jazz Showroom.

We had seen her perform before at this venue, so we knew we were in for a special night.  And, it was even better than special.  She lit up the room with an eclectic mix of songs from then and now.  And, her band and backup singers with top notch too.

She chose selections from James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Cure, The Beatles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Mike & the Mechanics….so many great ones.  Her version of the Cure’s “Lovesong” was superb.  Truly an enjoyable evening.

Along the way, Susan Anton shared a few of her many great stories of her performing career…. her time performing with George Burns, Kenny Rodgers, Frank Sinatra and more.  She spoke of her child, a Wheaton Terrier named Joe. 

Tiffany and I met Jeff and Susan years ago, early in the morning, at the Willows Park in Summerlin.  They were taking Joe and we were taking Bentley, our first Standard Poodle, out for morning walks and our paths crossed.  We visited for a few minutes each and every day.  And, our dogs played.

That every day meeting in the morning has developed into nights out to dinner or just a gathering for a cup of coffee or glass of wine…. depending….

It’s just a little part of “my” Las Vegas.  To meet two wonderful individuals….so full of energy, so deep in creativity, so interesting.  And, to be able to go out one Friday night in Las Vegas and watch share her passion for life with me…. with Tiffany… with everyone.

Just reading this post again makes me smile. Such a great evening. Jeff just told me recently that Susan will soon be performing at the Summerlin Center for the Performing Arts. Definitely worthy of a night out!
