Fresh update on "las vegas" discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix

"Two months in Sydney Australia with Shane Mozart, can tell you it's a great city, passionate fans and their rabid, but they don't have enough great fighters coming out of there. That's why they still pay for Anthony mundane. You know, so they were excited about Shane Moseley fighting him out there, but there were more excited about Moseley than moon dean. So yes, this man just stopped the world and its tracks. He's everything great that Australian needs. Take it down under. And I think it makes some financial sense, too, because Devin Haney is not a big star here in the U.S.. He's got a name and this fights in Las Vegas, but it's not like Pacquiao going to Australia was a little bit weird because Pacquiao does big sight fees here in the U.S.. Heney going to Australia probably makes the most money does it in front of a huge crowd, hostile atmosphere he learned something from that. It'd be a great event. Beat him unbelievable event. I'm an in men, I'm in. Go, go go to Australia. Go to Sydney, especially put 80,000 people in seats. And if you can go all the way down there in the hostile environment where the judge is going to be a bit against you and still come back with those belts. Man, you're a star in your own hometown. That's something that Devin hain, even though he's being groomed for something special and great and a page off of Floyd Mayweather and sugary Leonard. You still haven't done that thing yet. They haven't haney hasn't had that moment yet. You're right, but what was Floyd's before Oscar? What was Floyd's star? Hernandez. No, his star. Yes, and what did he do? He went to Jersey for that. He went to Arturo Gotti's backyard and battered him in New Jersey. And that was the last time I think that he fought brutal fantastic fashion against a guy that's normally blood and guts worry all the way to the end. So I showed you a mean side to Floyd Mayweather. He showed you that he could sell paper views and that's where he that's where he showed that he can be a pay per view star and then he legitimized it with hospitals. So it's not the same thing as going to Australia, but you go when somebody's backyard is something you gain from that. Like you gained some respect that I do. And then you become more of a hate using phrase all the time with shock caller in that sense. You go to Australia when all the belts, all of a sudden you the undisputed champion at one 35, you can do some things. Don't you ever say shot collar to me again? All right, give the microphone to Tod Grisham here because Todd, I do occasionally get tweets about your other job. ESB C the game. People do ask me sometimes. I've actually asked me, can you get Grisham on for an update on the state of the game? You are vice president of whatever. First of all, no, no, don't bring me on here at the tail end when everybody's all tuned out. I'm like nobody's main event. George can't be on at the top of this show. George get into the podcast. George cambos is coming up next. So they're not tuned out yet. Okay. All right, I'll do that..

"So we went over and it went over as a team. And we were mainly playing just as individuals all sharing a bankroll, which was an absolute blast. And I love that experience. We had a nice upswing of a about $97,000 in maybe three days or something, which was awesome. But then over the next few days, we lost all that money and then hit a negative, which was incredibly painful as you can imagine. We also dabbled a bit in the traditional sort of BP team play style and had had a shoe where I signaled in the BP and he lost $30,000. This was already when we were sort of on a bit of a losing streak after having been at such a high, which was incredibly painful. And then we flew to a different state as we were sort of getting a bit low on Las Vegas options and started the idea being we were going to properly do the BPT team play stuff. And that's why we picked the state. There was a lot of lots of tables and stuff. But this is exactly when the coronavirus started really hitting its stride. So this was the first time I'd heard the term social distancing was in a casino. They said, oh, you can't. We can only have three players at this black terrible table, yet over to my right, the craps table is just packed with people. And it's just like, why? What is this double standard? I just didn't like the consistency of it. So that really ruined our whole team play experience in that respect. And we just did the best we could to the sort of play. The whole U.S. trip, Vegas in that other state. We ended up we ended up basically breaking even when you take into account expenses, which was a bit of a bummer given how we had such a massive high at one point..

Jon Gruden Resigns as Raiders Coach Over Decade-Old Offensive Emails

"John Gruden has always been kind of a wild child in the NFL always been a little bit of a loose cannon, if you will. And I believe he was also he was also the coach of the Oakland Raiders in like the 90s. And then he went to the Buccaneers and led them to the Super Bowl very complicated. But then he rejoined the Raiders in 2018 after he was an analyst on Monday Night Football. Do you remember those things he used to sit down with the quarterbacks? And it was like Gruden's corner. I've never been a big fan of Jon Gruden. I'll be very honest. One in 2002, that's right, my memory's not too bad. I'm not going to be an apologist for Jon Gruden. Okay? I'm sure he lives a complicated life like most people in the NFL. But this recent saga involving in his resignation slash termination is disgusting. And the national Football Association is in many different ways. In enterprise that is built on a House of Cards. The entire structure of how many of the teams are filed as nonprofits on how almost every stadium is built thanks to taxpayer dollars. There's a lot of corruption that exists in the national football, the National Football League. And so it came out a couple days ago that John Gruden is going to be fired, or it has to speak out for his racist and homophobic emails over ten years ago. And I shrugged my shoulders and I actually didn't know where this one was going to go. Because John Gruden signed a ten year 100 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. And now so he technically resigned whatever he says, I have resigned as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be distraction. Thank you to all the players coaches and staff and fan fans of raider nation. I'm sorry I never meant to hurt anyone, John Gruden. And so it was revealed in some of these emails. And based from what I've said, seen should have said something's probably not no, was he joking around in private in a context that none of us can understand? Yes. He incited Joe Biden, insulted Joe Biden I can't even say what he called Joe Biden on air. It's kind of hilarious. Called Roger Goodell, a certain name. I'm no fan of Roger Goodell. So if this whole thing is like a Roger Goodell, apology tour, but here's what really matters. Here's the question. In the National Football League, do they ever allow people to do bad things and continue to participate? Like murder. How about rate Ray Lewis and his legacy of the unsolved double murder? Or how about you remember this one? You remember ray rice, who literally punched his fiance in an elevator? It was an elevator, right? Which gained total notoriety following the indictment he was released by the ravens and suspended, and now rice would be reinstated after he successfully appealed the league's decision. And this whole thing with John Gruden is this question of should you be judged by things you have said in private ten years ago to destroy your current

Wet Notes - 9-27-21

"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio for monday. September twenty seventh two thousand and twenty one first up. I want to congratulate tech clark and a dive locker. Podcast on celebrating the second anniversary for those who don't know about this. Podcast tech. Started this to help die professionals with various topics and techniques. But it's not just for dive professionals. I remember listening to the first episode. Way back in two thousand nineteen just before dima that year i've come to look forward to each weekly episode tech plans to keep the show going and has teed up a lot of great new content for the year year ahead. So i'd encourage you to check out the dive locker podcast. There's a lot of great information and perspective on things that hopefully will give you something to think about. Scuba shack is a proud patron of the dive locker. By the way tech also hosts a podcast titled the league of extraordinary divers. Where you can listen to some of the giants of our industry. Great job tech. Keep it coming now. I don't know what it is. But i seem to be a sucker for a message in a bottle story. So here's another one this time. The story involves a bottle that was washed up on the shores of the big island of hawaii. The bottle started his journey thirty seven years ago from japan and it was put in the water by school children. As part of an experiment in monitoring ocean currents the number of bottles were cast into the ocean in nineteen eighty-four from choshi highschool hawaii's about six thousand kilometers or four thousand three hundred miles from the launch point now. The bottle was found by abbie graham while her family was visiting a beach near hilo. It is estimated that about seven hundred and fifty of these bottles were tossed into the ocean between nineteen eighty four and nineteen eighty five. The last time one was found was in two thousand and two on kake. Jima island overall. The bottles have been found in seventeen. Different locations including okinawa the philippines china and even the west coast of the united states. I just get fascinated by these stories and often wonder just how many messages in bottles are out there in the ocean now. Last week we got an email from the clearly clearly came in resorts and it wasn't good. News clearly came in resorts include cobalt coast on grand cayman. Little came beach resort and cayman. Brac beach resort. The news informed us that the cayman borders will remain closed until two thousand twenty two. Now that's tough at a recent press conference to premier indicated that phase. Three of the original plan will start sometime. In february given the rise in cove in nineteen cases the resorts are now planning on opening on february. Fifth two thousand twenty two. Now this has been a really tough situation. If you remember way back in april i reported that the plan was to open in late april or early may two thousand and twenty one. It's been a long and difficult road for a lot of places. Surely the caymans are feeling abroad. We hope it gets resolved before october. Twenty twenty two trip yet. That on certain there's been a great deal of communication coming from tom. Ingram the president and ceo of dima the dive equipment marketing association regarding the two thousand twenty one show in las vegas. Tom unequivocal be states. That the show has absolutely no plans. Of cancelling now they did indicate that accordance with the local health mandates. Everyone will be required to wear a mask on the exhibit floor. There are several large past exhibitors. Who are forgoing the show this year causing some to question whether it should even take place. I know we've been getting a lot of surveys from our vendors as to whether we plan to go or not right now matt and i will be there. Tom indicated that it would be extremely difficult to cancel at this late date. Given the contracts that are in place and that if it were cancelled it would seriously impact demon's ability to put on these shows in the future. So we're looking forward to a successful show this year out in las vegas and finally today. I wanna talk about a piece of underwater camera gear that you might just want to consider. There was an article from sport diver magazine by john widow titled great camera accessories for underwater photography. It was a scuba lab review of the products that the staff took diving at alexander springs in central florida. First on the list was a sea life. Sport diver smartphone housing. Now that's pretty cool. I can remember my first. Underwater camera was sealife. Reef master with a whopping three mega pixels now. This housing will fit a number of iphones and android smartphones. The housing is bluetooth enabled and his rate it to one hundred and thirty feet. The sea life sport diver smartphone. Housing comes with a vacuum seal and duly alarms when you purchase the housing. You'll get a free app that will give you access to most of your phones. Usual camera functions also included is a red filter. And if that's not enough to housing allows you to put in those sealife life color changing moisture. Munchers he i remember those now. The housing isn't cheap. It retails for two hundred ninety nine dollars and ninety five cents. Us but if you wanna travel light and still get some great underwater shots of your adventures check out the c. Life sport diver smartphone housing at sea. Life fash cameras dot com. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on scuba shack radio.

"I'm on the prowl indeed welcome to podcasts. This is cats John, Castle Amita, the Las Vegas Review Journal by columnist called Cats fittingly enough find it on page three A. Everyday online all the time my guest. This week is an Italian Siren and multi-language singer who has made a mark in Las Vegas in a short period of time she hosts her own singing interview and cooking shows on facebook live. She's appeared on her own special on PBS and she happens to have been a last headliner Myers Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center she is Jada Valenti. How're you doing today? Would you I'm good. Now we've we've talked about doing this for quite a while. So I'm glad we finally got done when we first started talking about this you you didn't have your your facebook feifdom going at all. So I congratulate you in advance for making a such an effective use out of that platform you seem pretty happy doing doing your facebook stuff. It makes me happy because at least I have something to we are not performing anywhere and imports so much joy to many people I create new friendships among people that are I don't know in South Africa. Australia England they communicate with each other during the life which I think is pretty they talk hey, what are you gonNa like I'm not in there but Eat Eucharist Sanjoy, and actually being my inspiration you started to go live and I remember that too. You're talking and people were chewing up about seeing you there and I remember one day you said something that covid nineteen has a better person because we knew who has Jordan this busy the men in town, and then suddenly you time for your family Even for me I remember talking to you every day. I miss that John. It was the point was that when I was visiting my family in Idaho that you suddenly you're back in your original incarnation, you're the sun, the brother, the the. brother-in-law the uncle, the grandson you know, and that's where you are. That's where you are when when they take your costume away. So that was the point of it, but you know I mix it up pretty well, bit of Yeah I I've been interviewing so many people I'd be interviewing you and to Nelson many things about you and so many of my friends the normally I never had the time because I was always busy without saying to spend give attention to them. I've known that I mean. The is a is a beautiful world. There are so many great people out there and I think covid nineteen, slowdown, the world. So we we had more time for us for one full discover friends family I talked to my family normally I talked to my mom and dad every day. But now, I get to talk to other friends and family members in Italy because they know I'm home they are home. So I can hide behind nothing. Yes. Sorry. I'm busy now. I. Get this where I ask somebody if they can you know be interviewed or do something like, Hey, how your free Monday at two pm the answers usually been g let me check my schedule Yes. How many hours do you need? You talked about your family in Italy. You're originally from Venice as you've spoken of many times. Why did you? When did you move to Las Vegas? First of all, let's put the time stamp on what brought you to this city in the first place being Venice. Las Vegas would say here ago. I came I lived in New York City before before that I lived in La for two years and before that at least eleven years in New York City. So I moved from and before that Nancy them then London. So I've been like a gypsy, my whole life. But what brought me to Las Vegas is is been like a coincidence. You know had these special that films in two, thousand, fifteen and Two Thousand Sixteen around the United States and even though he was a national project. So Ola, he started from Washington every PBS stations around the United States. They have three, hundred, eighty, five of them. They can back it won't cost a show or not. So it Evans that I ninety five of them started broadcast in in two years time and so in every time I was going to a city for alive appearances on PBS. Dan Few months later counter. So Chicago your and actually Las Vegas was the one that was rejecting the shell I mean you were just saying We have so many are diesel. Let's wait for her a lot of in Las Vegas on PBS. A. Molly said because I don't gamble and I don't drink. So I was always on day when I'm going through, Vegas is going to be for business. So I'm going to be performing there. So I I never had put Las Vegas on the list of things places I wanted to go and visit, and then suddenly at the end of the two, here's traveling around the United States Las Vegas finally said, yes, we want to have their from his love which out of Atlanta sorry I came here a remember I did the the vision that studio PBS Studio. visit. To get a win myron actually from this needs Martin and it was pure coincidence. I didn't know nothing about Vegas, beside the Strip and that night the phone started to ring like crazy people were pledging for tickets for my council three months later at the Smith Center shovels. Wow this is quite great. The program was over and the phone was still wringing Yummy by now I said, let me go insane the people because these people are so nice. I pick up the phone and by Quainton UH spoke with this woman Irene it's a name and she invited me to talent American club. I said, okay why not the two strangers at Madison are bad can you be? So I win there there I met Dennis Bono everybody was so welcome in I started from la every month and I fell in love with Vegas the reason that's why I'm year now is because Vegas is beautiful place the. Basin you one of them I mean I lived in New York for eleven years, I met so many entertainment reporters. There are more superstar than stars, themselves and you for instance, you're part of the community. You talk to every person that WANNA share conversation with you. I think Vegas is a special place is really the entertainment. What did they call it? The the capital entertainments or the entertainment capital world and I think it is that what we call up? And? Sometimes some other vegas mindset don't say too much about a beautiful because everybody's moving here. So we should just say. Too Much? I'm always curious about people from outside Las Vegas think of Las Vegas and when I've traveled overseas at including Italy including your home town I'm always interested in what the natives and other overseas think of the city growing up in Venezuela, the of opinion European opinion of those around you about Las Vegas what? For me was is the Strip for the all over the world in Italy for has dream to come. To. Vegas. Vegas is gambles..

"Hello Everyone John Cats Lameda here coming to you with a little bonus content for the week. I want to introduce you to brand new podcast from the Review Journal. All Bob up. It's a podcast. All about the rise and fall of the mob in Las. Vegas told through. Wiretap recordings are audio and interviews with FBI agents politicians journalists and even ex-mob associates. Here's a sneak. Peek of the PODCAST. If you like what you hear. The first two episodes are available right now. If you search bobbed up forever you listen to podcasts. Las Vegas was better off when it was run by the mob. If you've spent some time in Vegas you've heard it before and if you live in Vegas you hear it all the time. The city was better when the mob had a stranglehold on its biggest business. Its Lifeblood when the Las Vegas Strip was largely mobbed up and crime families from all over the country New York Los Angeles Kansas City Cleveland Milwaukee Chicago at a tight grip on the flow of cash from any of the casinos. The people who say that the mob was that Las Vegas was better in those mob days. They missed the COPS. This is retired reporter and columnist gene and Morrison who wrote for the Las Vegas Review Journal for nearly four decades locals went to the hotels and were treated very nicely as locals and they got. They got lots of calm and they didn't have to pay for food drink or shows and people took care of them. They felt they felt like the town likes them. Oftentimes when people say they miss the mob days and it's because they're nostalgic for a time when Las Vegas was smaller when there was less traffic when you be greeted by name walking into a casino. They missed the free flowing. Booze Com shows free parking and buck ninety nine buffets. They miss things like Pie night. Which will get back to in a second to this day when people ask me where. I'm from an say Las Vegas you get the look. The voice. You're hearing belongs to Stan Hunterston. We moved to Las Vegas the late seventies to prosecute the mob as a special attorney with the US Department of Justice Organized Crime Strike Force. When I sat down with Stan you told me about a late. Uncle of his would often say to him. The town was better off when the mob ran. Stance has his uncle had a fair perspective. One based on his experience living in Las Vegas during the mob days He and his wife would go to pine night which they would have an show rooms once a week once a month. Something like that where you could go to show and see the main act and get pie and coffee for a dollar five dollars. Something like that finite as far as I know no longer exists and you know what that sucks pint sounds great and if that was your only experience with the mob in make sense you'd be nostalgic for the mob days but standpoint out in more ways than one not. Everyone in Vegas got to enjoy their slice of the PIE. That of course leaves of the the murders. The fact acted mafia obviously wasn't paying taxes on its share of the hall and the idea that the city was better off when the mob was running the show. Well it's not a point of view held by everyone who was around back then. It's held by people who I we're not killed but I've been offier didn't have a family member who.

Thank you so much for having me John. It's always a pleasure to talk to you to hang with you. It's just always a lot fush. We've known each other for quite some time and I want to start with the with the the first time I saw you. 'cause it's one of my favorite stories ever in Las Vegas. It was when you were at the Rio and it was the. I think it was called the Rio Bombo Lounge. Yup they're ninety nine and I was going there to see to see the then recently opened a Voodoo Lounge cafe upstairs. I was walking across the casino and I heard this energy and I felt this power coming from the casino floor to the off to the side. Where right now is the is a sportsbook and kind of the elmer gorilla thing in that area and I went over there and I saw people who were sitting at slot machines who were dressed up outside this lounge right. They were there a night out and they were sitting machines and not playing them. And I heard this sound blasting out of this room and I went in at the entrance of it and it was packed with people dressed up and having a time in the middle of this thing under a light was earl turner in a canary yellow suit. As I remember way and you remember that throwing it down dude and I was like what I have I walked into it was like a it was like the energy that just suck me and I looked around and people were having a blast and I'm like I don't know who this guy is exactly but I need to get to know him. I thought feeling I'M GONNA be writing about him saving and sure enough so there you go. That was a nine. You've been in Las Vegas. I think can hear what yeah loud. You remember those days. Why Ever Las Vegas to man? That really wasn't from Las Vegas. I don't know whether I would call it the beginning of the end sure. It's IT'S BEGINNING OF THE END. Of the lounges as we knew them Historically from LAS VEGAS. Yeah where they were The place to go to place to be to see Some really really really good entertainment That's not to say that we don't have great. Entertainment allows but the idea of the lounges has been kinda overshadowed by now the nightclubs and it's it's a different. It's a different time but those those days man you went to the casinos and You checked out what was going on. In the lounges. As much as you did the showrooms there were going to be entertainers in their even at their all. And you're going to have a good time. It was. It was certainly a destination experience. And I know that you were able to to break from your Earlier gigs at during your sets to go see other performers along astronomer or lounge and small venue institutions. People Checkmate's I think we were invented that time interesting. That you mentioned the Voodoo Voodoo had been open for a little while a guy by the name of Jimmy Hopper Was Holding Court up there. Okay and what? How many floors up was that? Was that a ticket was a fifty fifty. First and fifty second floors the restaurants underneath. And then the the lounges on top. I think those are the floor. Fifty fifty one fifty two Night and at this time the the Rio was owned by a very predominant builder in Las Vegas by the name of Twenty Mar. Now the gentleman who was the president or general manager of the Rio at that time. was a guy named John Lip quits. They had hired me to come to the real There were there. Were two sort of stipulations that John had was that he wanted to make sure that I had a sax player and to he wanted me to cross market with Jimmy Hopper on the weekends on every other weekend Jimmy and I would alternate going to each other's lounge and doing a song or two with each other every weekend but you gotta understand something. The weekends at the Rio were unbelievable. Imagine the Strip on New Year's Eve okay That's what the inside of the Rio was like. At that time every weekend showed the shoulder literally. I had to be taken with security through back ways through the back of House. entrances and exits to get up stairs to the fifty second floor. Why because it was impossible for me to get from my Riobamba Lounge to the masquerade area of the casinos impossible. That's how literally shoulder to shoulder. It would take. I don't know probably ten fifteen minutes to walk across the casino every weekend. We had to be escorted to each other's venues. How crazy that place was now? Mind you it was the place to be Because the palms hadn't even open yet he's mom's wasn't even built. Yeah I remember the the opening of Club Rio. It was the the first Hotel it had a mega club in it. That was X-ray and when they expanded it with a the Ma- I think it was a masquerade towers. Up in that whole expansion of it was. It was a really cool place. You are so right and I remember when I walked into too. That was another thing. In the way was the day GLO paint painted the whole vibe of their Jimi was playing an atlas another world. It was really really cool. I don't think people who have recently moved to Las Vegas can appreciate how how Sheikh the RIA wasn't how on point it was. It was a really fun place. Yeah you're right in the center of Mantle or forget that night quite a time man. Yeah you got the you got you moved to Las Vegas About Eighty nine right came on permanently for the dunes took out why. What was the catalyst for you performing there and Why was it that particular resort launched a career in Las Vegas? Okay so if I said was the only place I could get a job okay. We'll hire you and that was it. That was my catalyst and then they said we'll pay you and I was like. Oh it's on show up. Yeah Yeah There's no question about it. I'm here I could not get a job I could not get booked. It wasn't that I couldn't get a job. I couldn't get booked in Las Vegas because at that time The entertainment directors. Didn't you know. They did what they wanted to do. In terms of bookings were always bands and people that wanted to be booked potatoes and so on so they didn't have to go anywhere. I wasn't in Tau so they couldn't come see me. It was a catch twenty two. See me because I wouldn't booked in town. I wasn't booked to now because they hadn't seen right. Oh I had and I told the story. I told the story last night. I had been scheduled by manager. Had got me a date at the Met Lounge. You remember the midland. Yes Event Hotel. I remember it being. Yeah I remember being before I lived here but I certainly know it. Yes okay so. The Mint Lounge was the premier place to perform. If you were of any substance in this town okay. That's where the Santa Fe Santa Fe. Oh my gosh. Yeah and so. If you've got a GIG in the meant lounge who you were on but you had better be on when you get there. I got a job at the loud. I gotTa Contract Admit Lounge through my manager. He knew the guy there and a month before was supposed to come to Las Vegas to perform for the first time. They sold it so back to square one and so my manager came to Las Vegas so so my manager says to me you know what we need to do is we need to book Laughlin and so you know I said where Laughlin Yeah and I was like. Oh Kay he said. Yeah if I can get you the Laughlin than maybe I can get someone from Las Vegas to come down and see you. So that was the plant so I had been I come to Laughlin in Nineteen. Eighty Eight My manager while I was in Laughlin came to Las Vegas and he knocked on every door possible of every entertainment director possible at every casino possible. Nobody would go too often to see me. And so as he was about to leave town with his tail literally between his legs his last phone call was to the entertainment director at the dunes. A lady by the name of Karen Dorsey who she are still great friends. Even today he called her and it just so happened when he mentioned laughlin she said my husband and I. I can't remember whether there's a birthday and anniversary or something we're going with another couple to Laughlin This weekend and he said that's great. He said that's where my guy is. Could you guys possible? Could you just stop in and see him for maybe five minutes? Just stop in and see him so they had really. They'd struck a chord with one another even though they hadn't met and so she agreed to do it. She agreed to while they were in Laughlin stopped by Colorado and See Sky. So Yeah Yeah so she her husband. Joe and the other couple they come to Laughlin and she tells them I really need to go now. She's not supposed to be working. I really need to go and see the sky.

"And so the thing is is that people still go to these places but whatever the control points are to make sure that again you don't have a fever or whatever it might be whatever the new normal becomes but people absolutely at a certain point in time probably within twenty four months. Thirty six months are going to want to experience big nightclubs because it's a visceral experience. Yeah I think I agree with you. I think that I think that the emotional connection to those places for what they deliver will will lead people to say. Okay we if we have to go through a security check. We'll we'll deal with a health check for lack of a better term health China great. That's that's it you know. Go through the line security. Check Line where you're you know. I can see what you're saying. I I when people people who for years said that you know yeah. The era of the Mega Club. You know is crested. It's over and when I go to these places and you know it's it's a powerful experience I have to say and it's an it's it's they're well populated for a reason and it's because they deliver something that nobody else can you know. The structures are beautiful. The technology is amazing. And it's you don't you don't count him out. I say that don't don't count these players like when when you go see when you go see lady Gaga as an example at park theatre. That's an experience if you see her at the nomad. That's an experience if you were to see her at a club in a club setting like Hong Kong or something. That's a different experience. Some point is is that you know a wide variety of options for people to show their best and their talent. You know is always something if you could see lady Gaga. Do Standard with Tony Bennett. If you could see our part theater if you could see her nomad if you could Seahawk Fan. They're all going to be different. And some are more intimate in summer broader but the places are built to deliver the best of that person in that environment. So depending on what you're looking for or maybe you're just a huge lady Gaga Fan. That wants all four. Because you WANNA see all four options if you will because you're a huge fan so I just think that clubs have been so synonymous with DJ's. But I think that in Las Vegas and around the world. We've seen that. They've been great places for traditional performers as well so they're really just entertainment centric places that you're getting a different experience. I promise you they're not going away. Yeah I totally agree. I agree sometimes my friends and entertainment community. Laugh at me when I said that. But there's there's there's a lot of appeal to these clubs like saying it's like saying the shows are dead in Vegas. The late Chosen Vegas are deadened Vegas and then someone comes out does absent and it's just different if you do like you know the knock on circle of these years. Is they become a victim of their own. Success there so popular that it becomes passe that their brand entertainment. Isn't you know what people want while it's not necessarily that doing fifteen shows? Maybe not maybe if there were five you know. So that's the thing with the clubs. An- shows in general is that sometimes they become victims of their success because then every resorts like Mayfair as an example. Okay now everybody wanted you know at least when I was there All all these other people wanted quote unquote supper clubs. Told me that a couple of general managers had told you they wanted quote unquote supper clubs. Yeah I've been asked about it immediately about the appeal of it. What would you know what it felt like to be in there? How you know how played and especially at a place like Balaj which was so prominent right on the water and it had a history of different doing different things in that location. But I think you know when when we bring up the like entertained like headliners might have to be more do more apply more dexterity in their live Experience in the next phase of entertainment cirque Du Soleil People Forget often at circus. Lewis started as dance or as a as a breach of street performers in a traveling show and attended show in in more of the scale of an absence and they could easily deliver that again. You know I think that people will realize that you mentioned you know who seeing lady Gaga in different formats. You know I. I look at somebody like Celine Dion. Who has been known of course was a trailblazer at the Coliseum? But I've also seen her dude in the arena in in Nashville and blow minds and also with Steve Aoki Omnia and I think entertainers start to look at how they can deliver their art in knows different venues. You might come to away to see how this move forward After out of this crisis I think that I think that might be the way we're going. Well I lady Gaga you. Know is a great example. Someone who probably takes as much pleasure playing for her families and friends at home as to eighteen thousand people because she's just a performer Thing is back when I grow up. I was used to the US You know in the early days of Madonna. You know she was the original who every few years switched her sound switched her luck and was always you know in the beginning. Maybe it's uncomfortable. You know the new presentation of whatever music or kind of visual presence was but people artists in general people but artists. Also who don't change just become I duNno. Classic are all in some cases classic in the case of there's always a business for like a huge yacht rock fan pat can never get tired of seeing. Classic Yacht Rock like I saw Michael McDonald Venetian last year. I could see him often. So it's not like his career disappears because he's an older guy but they go into the bucket of kind of classics if you will whereas someone like Madonna might even be relevant today with new music at Last hit but even is recently. Is maybe five. Six years ago had a thirty year career of you know staying on top in being relevant you know in the EDM space guys like stone. David Guetta been around for twenty five years and are still the top draws in the world. So it's just a matter of Where are you? Are you still working with the best producers the best people to solve the same drive and things like that so you either change or you get left behind if my entire motto was? Hey I'm sean. The Club Guy. Then I become an old club guy if I become SEAN. Chrissy a guy who's leading hospitality company that wants to create new experiences. That at the core please you You know in in an always striving to please you that kind of where I want to be In in in this new company if you will yeah well. That's that's an excellent way to land at Sean. I know that It's it's been a challenging time also opportunity in all these crises. I know that you're you're gonNA It's definitely going to be a focal point when this when this was all in the rear view mirror behind us in some way. I like the idea by the way I think you could build an entire nightlife experience around. Yeah interesting enough. Prior to the crisis we did yacht rock Fridays at nomad. Yeah I know I saw one of them. Yeah I walked. I didn't I've had not been aware it was in the music. Drew me in and I spent about an hour and it's Eh define crowd in a couple of my friends that are hooting and hollering. Yeah a yacht rock guy show. We had the wind. Jammers was formed by a bunch of veteran top notch musicians in Las Vegas and erotic rox lounge at record they were getting all kinds of overtures after just like four after four shows was so fun so I think I think I would say bookmark back concept. Shout Shout Shout Yoplait crew. If you don't know who they are. They're southern California band that Does a whole Gimmickry with outfits but are good and if you just check out. Ya crew credible and so I want to get them out here. Yep Great Name. All right when you do name your your your your company. Let me know and I'll kick that out and then any any advances you're making. I'm always on the other end of the end of the line and I appreciate your Your time and everything you've delivered to the city and we'll just keep keep plowing forward likewise all right brother. He'll listen johnny. Keep doing what you're doing because I think that especially in this time you're instagram's your podcast recalls. I mean for me. They've been a bright spot because talking about how this city is going to come back with entertainment with notable figures. It really is a bright spot. People need things to latch onto and I think that again. This city is the capital of entertainment in the world. So you know the things you're doing I'm bringing people on your show and talking about kind of. Hey what are the next steps in? How do you feel about it and all these great things and reminding people of what this city is at its core is.

"Again. Maybe it's a restaurant that needs to fully change or Maybe it's a parking lot that they say they want to build a big club on or in attached to the building as a kind of thoroughfare if you will right so it really just is depending on you know what the available spaces and space could be an existing space or could be something that we build like when you know As an example. Encore when we built encore. Beach Club there. That was the portico share for encore right and it was then knocked down and what you see. Today's now encore Beach Club. But that was the front entrance to encore as an example so it could be as elaborate as that or could be something like when you know there was a great shell at Park. Mgm and my boss at that time. Bill a horn buckle said to me you know. Come back to me with concepts you know. He kinda landed on a couple of different things He he ultimately said I WANNA do you know one of the options was to killa in a broad sense with some four or five pages of ideas and when he chose to Keila which was my preference as well. Then we went down that path so it really doesn't matter create concepts and it's always about the team so there's always a team that goes around that is so it really doesn't matter per se. It's just what the need of the partner is. You know any good partnership you have to kind of listen to their needs in the react to those. So that's what I like to do when we exactly I know and I know your background is in. All those areas is stellar reputation is is also a very very strong in our thinking. Las Vegas. I know that and I've been around long to realize that that's for a reason the last time we really had a chance to do anything. Out in public was at Mayfair and there was a lot of energy around that and a lot of conversation around that that project a lot of you know obviously investment ingenuity imagination went into it. There was a lot of moving parts and it was something. I think that I would expect the new set. Your very proud of the the mayfair the execution of Mayfair inequality of the experience if not for this pandemic outbreak and and all the changing of the world would use of still been willing to to stay in mgm resorts and Oversee Mayfair. And all the other initiatives that you helped bring on bring online or was it the was this crisis that the lead you to want to do something different and led the company to win a go in a different direction. Well first of all anyone's employment at any company is finite especially when you work for a public you know public company and so my contract was for several years and I think that you know what I've always told people who I work with or work with me are you know are under my stewardship or leadership if you will. Is You know. The end of a term or contractual term is always a good point of inflection for both parties to sit there and say. Hey here's the opportunity. After the fact you're happy you're not happy. You need more money you don't you know everything's great whatever it might be and then conversely on the other side of things The person says has the same types of goals and objectives in as I sat there. And you know. We kind of finished the development cycle that I'd brought in to do the first couple years of Jim which crescendo with Mayfair four myself. I just realized that I was an executive win meaning employees for three years. I was almost almost kind of made it almost three years. At and really you know Entrepreneurial by nature my goal is to You know run hotels whether they're big or small own them and create content and put them into them and partner with great companies. Like the ones that I just worked with so the thing is is that for me. I realized you know at in two thousand nineteen that I wanted to seek out an entrepreneurial path the great thing about MGM is they. Let me be an entrepreneur within the company which was great because you have the same working for this amazing company of all. These resources created all these great relationships and friendships. And so you you have kind of a safety net of the mothership if I need accounting can call over here by you know need support on really anything. It's like it's different than a small business because they have everything they have all the expertise in house right and even if they don't when you call from MGM resorts as an example or any major publicly traded company. You can get the best people on in the world on the phone because I say Sean. Christiane President Vents in nightlife. And I can get the highest end whatever it is in the world because they want to work with you because it represents a much larger business opportunity for them so So again the long story short is is that I wanted to go back to my roots. You know when I transitioned out like group. I had an eight year run of Las Vegas Night Group where again did many things including things. At win 'em resort. I consulted in Reno in Dallas worked with Tony Marginal and the M resorts I've worked network project signed so my thing is I just want to get back into the business of you. Know creating a new company from the start in forty five years old. I feel like I've got the energy right now. In the expertise to kind of give it another world and it's really just about my desire to be entrepreneurial versus anything else so for me long winded way of saying no matter what happened. I wanted to explore that and in terms of MGM. I think we both got what we wanted out of each other. And I I mean again. I learned a ton there. They go all over the world in and work with them and work with some of the best people so yeah it was a great relationship on that gave me the confidence to make the decision that ultimately I felt like was right for myself. I think it works out Great Perm Jim too. Because they have a great team that is certainly capable of continuing to execute the types of products like Mayfair in the future. But I'm sure there are concerns are more about bringing on kind of the furloughed workforce back in so. I'm sure that their priorities have changed. But this the pandemic if you will did not lead to my departure maybe just Either way I was probably going to be out of MGM in the next month or two we are just. We're having a fluid conversation to make sure we did it. You know In partnership the like the way that we Kinda came in together I wanted to go out together and have a great relationship so it wasn't really hard date but I don't think I would have been there in July or August but you know it was all these people were getting furloughed. I knew I was going to be there long term so in order to restart it needed kind of the next. Gen if you will to be. They're not me. Yeah Right Given A. I think you're the type of person I've read you. Read over your career that you pick up something in every every professional experiences also learning experience and you take that to your next to the next phase of your career in the next phase of your life what did you learn what was the big takeaway from MGM Resorts International. What was the big learning experience from that? While the you know so very different in the sense that having to work with and be collaborate with so many people you know there's fifty some odd thousand when I was there on the Strip that we're MGM. I mean I believe 'em gyms largest employer in the state as just the amount of people that you interact with email with it just on such a large scale that my biggest takeaway was from that is. I don't know if I'll ever be in a company of that size again. And then because they also owned and operated so many resorts all over the place so all these different markets got to be part of a hotel opening in Springfield Massachusetts Springfield which was incredible But really where I landed with them jam because I got the kind of purview into all these different things what I like doing is again building things that hit you in multiple ways whereas before I might have thought I want to bar restaurant club or hotel room. I just think that things are GonNa Change. People want more access so even in like hotel rooms. I think that in this pandemic. We've all seen that. People are teaching classes online. You can work out in your room. You can do yoga. You can Peleton like the idea that in the hotel room doesn't just have to be forced sleeping. I mean we've seen during this that Peleton rowing or yoga or or or boot camps in in a very small space I mean I like taking traditional things mixing them up and putting a spin on it. Oh boy nature and all those things yes yes. I don't want to continue working on giving that in doing that. That's what I learned. Most of mixing things up. Is You talk about it Sean. You know it's funny. You know when you talk about the in room experience guestroom experience a new when you've broken down so many barriers and you've mixed you know a entertainment you you put them.

"We're not ready yet until I have an official something to talk more formerly talk about probably toward the end of the summer. But Yeah I'm going to be signing up for an office for the rest of the year. Starting June one. So that's the first step for you to Sean to be able to move into an actual physical Business space with a team. What really has to happen. What are some of the must things that you need to hear? From either. Healthcare professionals elected officials? What directives do you need to have and to be confident to start doing really start doing business here in Las Vegas? Well you know not just in Las Vegas Amine anywhere. I think that it sounds like depending on what area or city or state you're in that they're going to be different measures that are put in place to go to different types of establishments whether it's a restaurant. Concert Hotel Lobby Hotel itself. And so that information you know especially in this state that by our governor who's you know working with officials and CDC and all all the different agencies that are kind of setting the tone. I mean I'm a now huge Dr Phil Fan Myself. So I'm as as we listen to all these things I mean. All all of this is dictated on the safety and health and wellbeing of the people are going to work there and the people that go to these types of places but the one thing that I do know is that I think about it in terms of my life in the things that we probably all experienced which is look. I remember when I used to get on a plane and you could just go. You had a ticket if you had three bottles of liquor and a big giant bottle bottle of Coca Cola. Are something like that you could walk onto the planes and it was less cumbersome. You didn't take off your shoes. Her and you know unfortunately tragedies like nine eleven happened and you still go on planes even though in the beginning. I was here during nine. Eleven when the city kind of did not have visitation for probably six months to a year. But there's a new normal but the normal doesn't include the idea that people aren't going to gather it's just how we enter buildings and how we make sure that we're safe which I think will all discover over the next year year and a half is going to be different whether that is a card that says you know you've had you have an antibody. Or whether you know probably Crescendo. Ing With a vaccine but a lot. There's a horrible things that are happening. Deaths that are happening but there will be a lot of good things that come out of this because at the end of the day I feel like people like using the plane. As an example I travel a lot. Meaning couple hundred thousand miles a year In planes in my opinion are dirty. Yeah and I don't think I'm stepping outlines when I say that. So the idea that now maybe going into a hotel room in it's cleaner or going onto a plane and there's more care in consideration more the cleanliness in Santa Cessation of public spaces. And that there's going to need to be more attention to those things directed by State. Local and federal governments is a good thing right. Yeah agreed do think there is a different how he entered the buildings in these in these buildings. Right before About a week or so before the governor the governor in order you know the The shutdown in social distancing directives. I was in a couple of the venues at work about the scale of of Mayfair I walked in and was looking around at some plant at some ways that people were trying to deal with the six feet distancing and that kind of thing in the there were physical spacing between tables and chairs. It did cut down capacity. Lessen the scale of the room and I was wondering as I was looking at this if if if other operators had also done that in their venues I'm thinking about you know places like Mayfair and nomad and you know maybe on the record if you had to go through and conceive of a way to get people into the venue and still adhere to social distancing. Did it get to that point for you or has it gone to that point for you where you would have to consider opening a place or taking over a place where people have to be physically distance? And even maybe wearing masks around the venue to be sure that they're in compliance with. Do you think we'll get to that point where we're clubs? Reflect those directives. I think in order to you know in order to be in business in this environment which is something. We're all learning about every day that again. I think that it was probably inconceivable. Six weeks ago. That the idea that you know going to see people or something required this distancing in mass and all these things and I think that long term you know whether that's twelve months eighteen months or twenty four months those types of constraints probably go away Although I think as it relates to mass and things like that look when you go to Asia. People are wearing masks when they're in airports. Maybe that's a good thing again We're GONNA learn things that we like. We don't like in more important Be Safe but absolutely in order to reopen establishments that gather people especially in the beginning. There are going to be things that are new for us. Like barstools That are six feet away and mass and instead of eight top. It's a four top. What if I told you a johnny that we could go have a great meal? You Reference Mayfair at Mayfair and instead of having eight people before Before people and you know be spaced out. I think we'd all take that right now where we're sitting in our homes. A lot of people are in worse situations than us and so the idea that we hand start the process at some point over. I mean look I we all just want to get out there and see our friends and things like that so the idea that there has to be a safe way to do that. I think everyone's on board for and you will see those things and I think the things that will probably come. Last are large gatherings so You said nightclub or concert or sporting event I mean look. I'm a sports fan. I watch sports talk. Shows are talking about playing this year without fans. I mean those are the realities but the following season. I'm just suspecting that the raiders which I know this our city and I am too are excited about opening if that doesn't open with fans this year. I bet on the idea that the following year that we have fans in that stadium is fault. Yeah maybe maybe it's not as five thousand people. Maybe it's fifty but again at some point. That Raiders Stadium will be full whether it's next year or the year after so this will end. It will just be different in terms of the way that the public has to act and the government puts in standards and procedures and laws to make sure that we're safe right but we have been moving in the direction of smaller scale entertainment even even before. This became a crisis. Even before we knew a coronavirus we've had these conversations where we're talking about the trend of Entertainment in Las Vegas Across across our resorts specially and it has been that it's been A lower scale a more intimate and more. You know immersive as we've you know who picked up that phrase and cap by Mayfair and so it it helps I think in your in your strategy that you've already helped initiate a lot of that type of entertainment already. You don't have to go from being a major Pakistan nightclub operator all the way down the ladder to to a a you know a smaller venue. And so this kind of hits to what you've been seeing is a trend anyway right yeah. I think as relates entertainment or or the way or just popularity of things in general that things become a victim of their own success so if as an example using your reference related to big nightclubs When when there was the first kind of big nightclub in town and I could go back to when I got to town. Utopia raw all these things. From bygone era more modern versions would be pure and Tau and You know the excesses Hawk assange on is the world and things like that but the there always be a place for those things but I always like to say if you just pick your favorite band and you say hey you know. I always used to use the rolling stones but okay we could see the rolling stones especially you see at once. You listen their music in the build-up but if I sat there and said to you. Hey let's go see that every single night for the next year. I promise you the rolling stones would not be your favorite band Reason why people like to travel experience new things. Because they're seeing something that they're not fatigued by in so their senses are lighting up and they're endorphins hitting and there's a certain emotional experience when you are caused to have this reaction that it is new so there's always going to be in Ebina flow. I mean dad jeans are back you know? Fifteen years ago genes as an example the genes dad war. If you'd worn those out in public Those you know you'd be laughed out of the building if you will and now. I see like dad jeans as a trend just has an example. So what is old is what is new and vice versa. And there's always there's always a up and down to everything so I like just being open and looking for trends and trying to do things that while people whether it's big or small bought melas point is there's nothing like you know kind of seeing you know an amazing performance. Oh when I had the pleasure of seeing the lady Gaga Lady Gaga. No Mad. I mean. That was an experience that I just don't think can be replicated with those in artists. That's ten feet away from you and you're really connect with an artist you know. There's just nothing that beats right if I may A. I'm interested to know how I would. I would Enlist a John Christie to be a part of my my nightlife creative operation. If I'm if I'm a resort operator resort company operator. Now we're really WANNA do something different with my with with my nightlife division. How does that relationship work I would? I would get in touch with you and then I would say you know what I've got this. This particular property that needs to be refreshed needs to be different. You would you be in. You would take the lead there and go into existing spaces you would redesign Unused space how would you? How would you a working in that conversation? Yes so you know my experiences broad in terms of whether it's restaurant Park Club experience whatever it might be but typically it just matters. I mean I've had everything over the years from. Hey you know. Here's a space. That was something else we need. We just want you to concept something like come up with several ideas and then iterating.

Thank you the last time we had. We'd had a chance to talk. You just announced that you were leading. Mgm Resorts International. Where you were heading up the nightlife division for about three years right. Yep Give or take two and a half three years that's correct and and we had a chat about that after you posted about a the Dow that move Before we get into their background and all that about what? Got You to where you are. Now what's what's the latest. What's your next move I understand? You're you've got something else in the works. Yeah you know so. I came from the world of kind of independent companies When I worked in Boston I worked for Canada premier. I guess small business if you will ended up being a large large hospitality business but the lions group them. When I came to Vegas I worked for Light Group and then you know after like group I did my own company was I called Las Vegas Nightlife Group in did things primarily at the wind but also the M. resort city centre amongst other things. So I'm going to kind of go back to those roots and start another hospitality company toward the end of the year You know albeit probably start small but you know my intention again depending on what happens related to kind of the circumstances wherein You know to grow that. Bigger quickly quickly Depending on all the things that are unknown at the moment. What's it going to be called? You know I I don't know yet I mean I. I don't have a specific I have a name Probably similar to a lot of people kind of working through an Ip attorney right now. I have several names that all have hospitality in it but things are moving a little bit slower. I don't know if that's the government or I kind of IP lawyer. But I'll definitely let you know sooner rather than later and you've you said near the end of the year as era is being fourth quarter fall winter. That General Timeline. Yes. I'M GONNA sign. Actually interestingly enough in the next week or two lease for an office only because I Can I'm not a great worker from home type person and so probably have an office a small office in June and then I honest- honestly I mean I could start now but in I am. You know have been doing a lot of kind of the back end work but as it relates to. Kinda getting deals going in things like that you know the primary interest of people that I would be working with and people who would be investing in me. I think that the that their primary interest you know are going to be reopening their businesses through the summer. So that's Kinda why I've a loose placeholder to say that that would be happening in Q. Three Q. Four. I mean again. It's it's it's somewhat of tired. I will be working as of June on all the back. End Stuff in hiring people You know I've I've investors that are gonna be you know partners investors with me But you know really related to. When does the government and the industry in the economy reopened? I mean I saw the presidential address yesterday which seemed egg but look like a plan of some kind is one face to face three and it seemed like face to was part of the approach of things reopening in a new normal way and then. I was assuming that maybe a phase for so I feel like it could be good timing because one of my main objectives would be to do my small part to get people back to work if you will On that's really one of my main objective is to do my part to get all these incredible people or as many that I know that I worked with and are laid off for furloughed or whatever you WANNA call it. The people who find themselves out of a job after this is concluded meaning in the next three to six months the people who ended up being permanently laid off. I WANNA put those people back to work in. Do my small part right. What what What kind of staffer can have all the beginning to startup? So I'm kind of thinking of probably some Again some familiar Reputable faces in the hospitality industry. That'd be coming on board. I've gotten some soft commitment so the past couple of weeks of people who again Are Happy that there's kind of something that when I called them. That seemed interesting. Seemed like an opportunity might be a crack of light in a kind of a dark tunnel at the moment and so probably in the beginning A staff of up to six to ten throughout the summer because I have to have expertise. Experience Talent When I get rolling hopefully in the fall and at the at the later portion may be in the winter if you will because I mean at the end of the day. I think that we probably all think although I'm not an expert News Watch TV. And try to stay. Informed is that next year meaning after January first is going to be a lot brighter than This year but I also think that companies and people are going to need companies like mind that create content create while and also drive. People into buildings I think more than ever. There's going to be a need for those types of things right in in the near future. Your focus is going to be an entirely on Las Vegas John. It going to be based on the Las Vegas 'cause you know as we talked about earlier My Fam- my daughter's here. But no I mean. My intent is actually to grow nationally Not going to bite off more than I can chew. But I'll be based in Las Vegas. My roots in hospitality over the last twenty years of here but numb intentions are to be in multiple markets in the following year as I kind of identify opportunities for companies that I can integrate with partner with or maybe even financially depending on kind of the fallout of this prop up or by whatever that might be but I think those types of opportunities are gonna be the types of opportunities that reveal themselves throughout this year which types of resorts do you see yourself. Which types of operator partners are you seeing you just came from? Mgm Resorts International in Your Initiatives. Are you know pretty much in place when you left? Who who would turn around and enlist the SEAN crispy Hospitality Company to help that would be strip resorts that scale. But it'd be more locally driven. Where where do you think you're GONNA get your Your Business? I mean early business. I've already had people reach out to me when I did. I think that You're in my chat Earlier in the month I think peaks some initial interest so I actually had a couple strip operators already reach out to me for various opportunities which you know we kind of had a place holders that when it's appropriate to chat because their primary interests were related to reopening their respective resorts. But I think initially where my Deals would be where. I could probably have an impact in this year or early next year may be starting it up this year with the idea that you know getting integrated next year maybe or at the latter part of this year all came from quote unquote strip operators multiple strip operators Any of those things transpire. You know who knows but it seemed like there was a lot of early interest for person like myself that could you know put together inexperienced team the other good part about that is Well it's actually not a great part but good part is is. I can probably put some skilled people back in the workforce sooner rather than later as a result of you know kind of meat putting a flag if you will. I think in your career if I'm not at least in Las Vegas Sean. If I have this right you haven't gone backward. You haven't gone back into a partnership before you've always gone to a different thing. A new thing another new thing is it safe to say that your next partnerships An and your partner is. We'll be people with whom you haven't worked before. Are you opening up to two previous employers like an MGM resorts Wynn encore? Would you consider an have? You considered Maybe some Some Version of the relationship with the with those types of operators. Look I have great. I've never left the only two that I've worked As kind of an executive were WYNN RESORTS MGM RESORTS. On both of those cases parted ways left on great terms have great friends. I'm always interested in look. I like working with people I've worked with before our 'cause you know you kind of both parties kind of know what they're getting So I'm really just open for business whether it's with someone new or not old but You know or whether it's a past relationship so open all I've had both I've had a company reach out to that I had not worked with and I didn't really know well and was kind of out of the blue again based on probably seeing maybe your column and then Had someone else reach out to me? That I had a relationship with a prior to this so so it doesn't really matter to me? I mean it does matter when there's an actual something to work on Not wouldn't just take deal nor would anybody you know it has to be the right place in the right fit But you know after working with MGM. Sony different markets working on so many different projects. I feel like my skill set and then the you know the people that bring in which you know would probably be something announced like in September ish area again all depending on the information that seems to change by the minute You know the skill sets are going to be very diverse. And so it's not about me. It's always about the team right now though it's about me only because I'm talking to you about it. There's a those.

"Talking about it and using very measured approach and we'll make a decision on anything should right now. It's going forward but health safety. It will be at the top of the list and if there's any any type of problem or thought of that there would be one. I'm sure that they will make adjustments to whatever schedule. How are you going to address this at Allegiance Stadium? When when Home Games are nearing the preseason comes close again talking about those. What's his family right now. It's interesting I wouldn't say we're fortunate but it's the other sports right now that are dealing with the National Basketball Association the NHL even in Palm Desert Larry Ellison's PNB tennis tournament. I believe he just cancelled that. Yeah and that's a huge huge event that they have we've seen South West canceled. I mean when you go. You're looking at those scale that scales offense again that that that's happening right now and so you know looking forward a month or two. We don't know where it's going to be. But I guarantee that the the League Players Association and the leaders here. We'll come up with those who you just mentioned. We'll be in conference with. Nba officials about how they handled. You think there will be a dialogue between those two given it there. I think there's a dialogue between everybody. Yeah okay in the in the public sphere you have to. I'm GonNa ask you kind of predicted question as John. The same thing the other night on the red carpet you can't escape it but Tom Brady Tom Brady. He's a quarterback out of In the Boston area. I'm not talk. Tom Brady not to be confused with any member of the Brady bunch or any. What what. What's the answer to those who say. I want to ask Tom Brady of friend or foe is he. Where is he in your in your conversations from a competitive standpoint and how? How's that decision? Good friend or foe. I've only met Tom once. I'm here at the fight the other night. I was the first time you met him. That's for some say hi okay. I know his mom and dad very well to bay area people. Yeah and so. I've known them for years. Forty niners ticketholders. Yeah but I don't I don't know Tom but it was nice to say A Lotta Lotta Raider. Fans have a lot of venom towards him But it wasn't he made the decision was officials Yeah that's right. And we're taking the Franco Harris again. She officials so and the day you were what might have considered frank. Harris was a free agent. Despite the immaculate reception is are we going by that seriously? Who makes this is such a big decision to make in terms of personnel do you. You're asking that question. Yeah that's not my decision who I Mike Mayock is. The general manager became Jon. Gruden is the head coach. They make the decisions on the football side on personnel. And everything my role that I've I've made my own role is I'm the devil's advocate I'm the one who's going to challenge them on every angle of any decision of that magnitude and just test them and they know they don't need the test but just to test them and give them questions they might not have thought of or whatever but the decision is fully. There's so if my came to you with a plan to maybe trade Derek before free agency and signed any free agent quarterback including Brady. Would you say well? I'M NOT GONNA make individual comments on any player or anything like that. But sure it's up to Mike and John you have no problems with Derek Carr. Derek Carr is I love Jerick card number one Derek Carr. I'm his biggest fan. But I'm also his biggest critic and that that's the life that you live in the national football league when you have a quarterback that's the guy that's usually everybody's looking at. He's the guy that touch the ball on the play. Oh Yeah and so if you you have to look at the six years. That Derek's played with the raiders. And understand that he's had like three three different head coaches right for giving coordinators and everything else. This is the first time that it'll be third year with the same head coach and coordinator. Okay so that's one aspect of it the continuity and learning of the system and secondly the rest of the team around and you have to understand those things too so you know at times you might WanNa just ring. Somebody's neck but you also have to understand the circumstances right but as we know. The raiders have have the high standard over the over years ideas to win the Super Bowl. That's avenue that's really the stats. Don't matter none of those things matter. It's wins and losses right and have you taken this to the promised. Land Right Right. The sign has been. Put up on your stadium. Now Lujan Stadium. We're getting now the visual the look at what. It's going to be two people who live in Las Vegas and around the League. What about the allegiance? Stadium is going to set up a part. Set it apart from other stadia around the country. What do you think is going to be signature? Galvanizing cool is the fans in the ground. Swell have come up with the name. The death star Star Wars and. It's just a name that fits the Raider Mystique and everything else. I love it and the buildings really magnificent and it's going to be it'll stand out people when they say they'll know where it is and what it is and it's going to be an iconic building right. Is there any plan to showcase the stadium itself during the draft coverage? I'm sure I'm sure they'll show it again. I'm not in charge of that Has To football league and right and the how do you factor into that? Did they notify you of what the plans are? And where you're supposed to be you're going to be well. I'm not even sure I'll be here in Las Vegas for for a good part of it. I might try to be here for the first pick. That the raiders make But I'll be probably up in Oakland in the war room up there unless John Decides to move the war room down here okay. Johnson is where the where the nerve center is going to be. It might be. That would be John and Mike again making the hostages. The first pick is going to be important not only because of his prominence on the team. But he's going to be going to model the the raider gear. Yeah the vert under for been waiting for a time for las biggest reiter nice and it's just been my feeling that I'd like to do it in a I don't know a unique way so I decided that the first player drafted by the Las Vegas Raiders. In the first round is going to be the first one to put on that fully. Licensed Hat Raider Hat. Las Vegas Raider hat band. So that'd be pretty cool that will be cool and the gates will be opened for Las Vegas Writer merchandised episode. Podcasts will be right back. We'll get you right back to my conversation with Mark Davis but I wanted to take thirty seconds to tell you another podcast from the Review Journal called Vegas Nation. A podcast dedicated to all things. Raiders from draft picks to stadium updates to comments from players and coaches the Vegas nation. Podcast will keep you up to speed on the Las Vegas Raiders just search for Vegas Nation. Wherever you listen to podcasts or visit review journal Dot Com backslash podcasts. Now back to the show have to ask everybody ask. Your look is new to Las Vegas and people might be suit around the bay area but a nasty about it the other night. What do you do your haircut? Have a name and what is behind. It just had the same haircut for last twenty years thirty years air. That's shorter shorter. That's my real deal. What's the story behind it? It's GONNA cut. You'RE NOT GONNA get a cut to different style pardon. Pardon I'm fine with it wash and wear live with the MD. Maybe when I when my grows out we'll all have. Md haircuts. Yeah you never know. I know that you've you've you've got you become well known for it so I ask about. Tell me about Your Dad I. I was in a discussion about the design of the stadium. I've been wondering if he's going to be depicted in in statue form or any kind of permanent tribute on the site or bigger at your facility. Maybe in Henderson is one of the things that we're going.

"Do didn't make sense. I think the marketing emphasis of a change more than the actual amenities there were so the. Mgm Grand Theme Park Went Away. That was a big one but we have a lot of stuff. There's still a lot going on for kids in Las Vegas. That we don't necessarily mark with what we don't show they. Don't show the waterpark NATO. But there's a lot there's a lot going on. It's not part of our marketing campaign. And when people gear they tend to be like. Wow there's a lot of stuff for I think that's a choice that was made for whatever the reason I mean. I don't. I'm not a researcher but I do know that To try to bend this city to say it's a family down didn't work it didn't work didn't quite ring true. It didn't it didn't feel it was an authentic. It's all about that now. Let's just be who we are? Let's say what we're going to say and be genuine whether it's in show business meaning whatever you doing. Well let's I have one more Thing I want to touch on how you? I'm a huge Beatles. Fan Thank you okay. And you were on stage with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr some years ago saying hey jude. Hollywood Bowl K. Wow let's just let's yeah. That's part of the quiz to how did that happen. When was it? What was the environment? Because it's so it's amazing when you tell the story it sounds like I just walked up there with Paula Ringa. That's not exactly Russia stage. I did not rush but more importantly it wasn't just me. It's super you know. Hi I'm always trying to be honest about this stuff so that doesn't exaggerate. It was a lot of entertainers now. We were all part of Earth Day and so there were different acts. We had Kenny loggins. Katie laying it was in the ninety S. ten thousand maniacs. Don Unleash was ninety. Three's on I think it was ninety. Three Steve Miller all these different bands. I was with a band. Called P M dawn and we were the babies of the group so we went I at the show. I started and You know like early in the afternoon. It's one of those all day things they used to do. They still do these. I mean I hear they do anything anymore. Dr Daisy Kern. What's that other one helps? Beautiful like that stuff. Okay anyway so what happened was being short when you're in a big massive crowd. It's easy to get sort of pushed and slush and so when Paul invited all of us. Paul McCartney was the Anchor Act and it was his thing and when he invited us all to come back on stage I got pushed to the front with P M Dawn. So that's how I ended up standing next to him and then Ringo. I don't even know where he came from but he came like on. My left and Paul was singing. The hey jude thing. And he I had talked to him for about fifteen minutes at soundcheck so I was still trying to recover from that conversation because he actually called me over and he said hello. Love how you dotted on and I'm just trying to be normal but inside them like Paul Gurney am he. He wanted to talk to me about our music. Because Paul's Kinda like Tony Bennett. Where he wants to know what's up now like what's current and He's not one of those well back in my day. Like he's always got his open for what's on and we were the thing that we you know current group so he was talking about that and he said that when the last time he had played the Hollywood. I wasn't born yet so I got all defensive and said yes I was and we got into this thing and he proved to me. I wasn't and it was just funny and cool. And then he said Yeah Sixteen. It was sixty sixty five played there in nineteen sixty five. I know it was. It was something about nine to sixty three. Because I know because I wasn't born yet so whatever he was talking about. 'cause we had a whole discussion about it. I said. Oh you're right. And he so long story way too long. Make it shorter. Is that at the end of the show. He called us all back. I ended up at the front and for some reason he just took my hand and when we got to the Non Anez and Ringo was over here talking about how. He didn't WanNa sing because he had just had dental surgery and wasn't feeling well. And I'm hearing them talking about that in front of all those owned wrinkled talking I can't sing. I had surgery in Paul's singing and he takes my hand in the other background singers ham. And he's like okay and this is all happening live at the Hollywood bowl and then he took my hand and then we started doing the nominees and then he left the Mike and went away and there was an open. Mike and I just started ad-libbing and then it turned into a thing. And that's how I ended up singing the wailing ad-lib St Jude with Paul. That's amazing. Wow Center the universe stuff. You're my hero all right well. Let's remind people where they can see you next three. Pm February February twenty third. It's a Sunday afternoon. Mirus cabaret jazz saying Cova Cosa.

Could you come here okay. So I started I was doing charity circuit doing nursing homes and hospitals and everything in the Philadelphia area and high school. And that's really how I learned to perform. You had to have had some chops before you did. Even that first show just stuff in the kitchen just messing around juggling knives. Juggling pins and balls and things yeah. Peter Panics Act. I don't know but I but you can definitely see some influence. There are so one of the things I remember his big closer was. He would balance a shopping cart on his chin juggle three wind bottles. That was his and I balance a whole bunch of stuff on my Chin now and and I think back on it directly. I think it was. You know I think it was that influence of seeing as a kid I would practice balancing things on my chest I would guess so. I don't know wherever else you see. That kind of thing never seen anybody balance a shopping cart at Smith's or or anywhere avenue goal now the viral video. I know that guy. Yeah Push shopping carts away by the way I've been meaning to ask you have the billboards of the guy who who's John Sky. Jump how you know. It's not so much why I knew new it. Wasn't you guide Jeff Sevilla. I get two or three texts a week about seriously about that. Yeah with screen shots season with crabs. I know I know a lot of times when you when you see somebody that you're like. Oh come on look at anything like me. I see the billboards. I'm like yeah I get it. I you think looks like me I would never. How much does that pay? Go back to but at the moment I saw and I'm like I have to get jeff on this. I'm like who is that him. I still up over. Yes uncanny. Who Books looks that people would? Susan entertainment thought if they thought it was like wait. A second wife are headliner. Hanging Stratosphere Sky Jar Thursdays through Tuesday see Jeff. That's part of his act and at the bottom you get a twenty five dollars voucher dark Tuesdays. I used to make that joke in my show. I I deal with it to the kid I got on stage. Ideal does pressure six nights a week dark Tuesday but I kept it in my shell now says I deal with this pressure every Wednesday night doctors Tuesday nobody last so don't forget doctors. Do you WanNa make sure you know where that's suffering happens. Exactly that's funny Ed. But then when the charge of win win is to pair entertainers with needy causes essentially right. Yeah we focus on youth in need so AH hospitals are flagship program so it is funny because you know. Tell a story about domino's school like that. That really is the the basis genesis of of my performing career. So it's it's it's very organic. It's very natural. I just never stopped doing the charity shows because they came first so even when I was in college right I was I was in college. I was doing comedy because I do. DC Improv. I do low corporate gigs here and there little shows and campus but I was also doing shows for big brothers big sisters boys and girls clubs in DC and and that was always just kind of part of what. I what I did and so when I came out here to Las Vegas. It was the same thing I was doing. Shows doing. Nathan shows doing via Jumping v the ultimate the variety show. I do amazed and I also went over you. Mc and I and. I asked him if I could do some shows and do go room to room and I just kind of was part of what I did and it wasn't really until Vegas that exploded because I think a few things were going on. I think social media renowned was happening then I could put that experience variance online. Wow like that's cool like I'd like to do that and then I do a lot of that from your show with those glow in the dark pins. Yeah Yeah that was really fun. Yeah and then social media at the same time as I think getting a show and kind of having having a home base kind of have some some leverage a little a little bit like I had a little more voice I guess and so as my as my career continued to grow win win I think continue to grow in a parallel track act because now I had access to so many more performers and they were genuinely my friends so I remember we had human nature. Do a whole bunch of of shows for Win Win Right AH visits a carols and they did show started imperial palace all right. And that's and that's my point is I was friends with those guys like I had their kids up on stage. They'd all been shows so when I when I said hey you know. Hey Andrew can toby. Can you guys do this. They're like yeah Kuwaiti. For sure for you. Yeah your neighbors. Were Buddies. Were shared the space base. Whereas if I didn't have a show I didn't have the relationship? I just randomly email them. I'd probably get something back from Weill. SPIC saying like their book. Uh which is understandable. I get that but so I think I think it's important to note that as my career grew here I was able to have access and bill genuine connections with performers and relationships that made kind of mobilizing A lot of the entertainment folks to give back kind of easy and natural So Yeah Yeah. Well you've you've been able to pair your your stage success with win win and it's grown multiple cities now. We are in seven cities. He's right now so so is it going to be more of a challenge. How that you don't have the direct Las Vegas affiliation to continue to expand win win? You know you're going to work on it but I mean News Las Vegas headliners is a big draw. Sure Yeah I don't think so I mean of course that's always the challenge right. I'm not going to say that it's a bummer. It's a bummer to lose that affiliation relation. That's that's when you kind of think about the pros and cons the pros of course having your own playground right to show up. Everything's there and you can't just have you run having that kind of presence to have. This is my home. Base is great right in it as a bummer to lose that but I feel like the trade off to get that time and to have. The flexibility is is something I need to do. I made a ton of performers all over the place whether it's you know at a corporate event at College Performing Arts Center at Disney cruise in the airports wherever forever and I connect with all these different performers. And it's fun because I think there's a healthy. There's a healthy jealousy among performers right. You're putting yourself out there and you're you're you really given it all and so you see another performer. You're immediately measuring yourself against that perform like am I better than this person. And that person getting bigger laugh so they write a funnier funnier. But what's really fun. Is that Kinda special. Is that now since. I've really focused on win win these last few years when I see someone. It's not like Ossard them. It's not what am I better than this person. Is this person doing better more successful. It's like ooh. How can I engage this person in win win? How can I get them? What's the batch? Earning yeah exactly. It's just it feels. It was like a much more connected space and industry which is nice like I I genuinely by I thought Oh my gosh. They're amazing like I would love to get them to do arrive. Dr Is it for for win win like to give back to others. It's not so like Nah. He's better than me like he's got more followers hits or whatever like who cares..

"Experience at Paris. Las Vegas. He talks of why he is ending that run now and what to expect in two thousand twenty Eh. Jeff Civility. Comb my friend. Hello welcome to podcasts. It'd be here have been talking about this for a while getting you on my little show and finally the catalyst was that you're you're going to be leaving even now or never now or never is a song says. Let's let's go through it. You're going to be Ending your show long-running performances yes decade in Las Vegas on at this December and the eighteenth. Why are you doing that so I feel like it's just time it's been ten years? I started two thousand nine at amazed a long running show at two thirty PM. Several Weeks Surya multiple performances heavyweight. Yeah but you know what I'm grateful because it took me out to Vegas Ryan so looking back on it. Yeah it was a wild ride. You know what it was it was actually. The concept was was brilliant. It was the execution that was lacking concept. Was that this agency called quantum talent out of Myrtle beach would kind of home base their agency in Las Vegas with his resident show and then whenever our performance weren't doing corporate Gigs College Gigs Performing Arts Art. Center's we were working in Las Vegas. We would all own a piece of the show and so even when. Hey I'm on the road. I'm North North Dakota State University. Could've saved just for example per point just north and so let's say I doing a show there I would still be making a small percentage back in Vegas because we are kind kind of bought into this. Show you're an investor Anna perform. Exactly Chucker we never made money so we never got to that point where there was money a to split because as you may be familiar it is much more difficult to get a show up running profitable and so I do say it was a great idea because it ended up really. It started the whole agency a lot of a lot of guys that you know. We all know and love recycled Percussion Schimdt she migrant. Tim Gabrielson then went to have a show at House of Blues. A lot of names that are still kind of in and around Vegas myself included. We were all part of this and then it kind of became smaller and smaller a lot. The people said hey you know. I'm going to go back to Virginia. I'm going to Florida and because they could see it wasn't really working. You know. Yeah you do shows for six people at the theater two thirty PM. It's pretty. We know we know that pattern. Now we've seen we see it all the time. It's tough so it but it ended up being really more a two man show so there are three of us myself migrate burning burning. Tim Gabrielson Mike Rayburn does comedy guitar. Tim Gavison Comedy Magic Myself Comedy. Juggling and so the idea was that there's three of us To us in the show right so the first first time one of US gets booked. Let's say might get booked in Chicago for corporate then. The show was locked in that day as myself and Tim and so it was still a variety show because then you gotta have at least two variety show. Let's say Jeff gets booked at a corporate. Now it's Mike and Tim and again still a good idea in theory because then we would still be making money both on the road and we'd still be kind of keeping our chops up and working at and keeping our presence and everything but again never never really came to fruition in the the The way that it was envisioned but a noble noble attempt to get you a absolutely got me out here from that started doing and sponsored Nathan Burton. Yep that's right. I started really hearing about you as Nathan Show and to Nathan. He's got to see. It's awesome those days really. I don't know if ever told you. He was very specific about this. He goes this guy's going to have a ride in Las Vegas. You Watch wow did cool on those days here. No I owe a lot to Nathan honestly at eighth on the big stage right the at the lingo and got me kind of comfortable doing those spots and went on from there but yeah that was. The toehold was was amazed at this show and kind of random to get in this and break variety shows in Vegas and then from there Nathan built a relationship with Caesar. Yeah and then you know all the ways yeah entertainment the whole when you went from that show too. It was your next Nathan. I actually was doing the planet. Hollywood Restaurant Restaurant Dinner Show Caesar's Palace. I joke about it because I is the planet. Hollywood restaurant bad Caesar's palace in the form actually had t shirts made that said had my logo and it said Planet Hollywood and big bold parentheses restaurant branded on the back. That Caesar Spouse Parmesan Comic McKee to do a job. That was back in the day. You'd say I'm headlining. The Fabulous International House is of reminds me like so good to be here on The Guy Checks inside I Holland America cruise line here in fabulous Ebola's Las Vegas New Mexico. Yeah but yeah it was. It was a fun little show. I did in the upstairs stairs room at planet Hollywood and again it was just kind of a home my chops and get a spot and I used to use Nathan show at four o'clock to push that audience over to planet Hollywood Hollywood restaurant show and man. I got to tell you that was those were the hustle years. I know a lot of people that time said man this. This dude works so hard right because I would go to planet Hollywood. I would go up through the basement. The elevators a kitchen all that I would set up my show and I would go back down. Walk across to the Flamingo. I I do my set and Nathan show and then it's hey guys like that. Come see me across the street like literally Ptolemy over. Yeah follow me over. And then I'd go out there. I was handing out my rack cards after her outside the flying go and then I would run over red. Beat everybody there and I'd be taken the tickets literally. I put a sign up in the outside in the Atrium there on the concourse and it would say Dinner Show seventy five dollars right but I told everyone with Nathan Burden Ticket Stub you get dinner and a show. Oh for just twenty five bucks. So what the audience didn't know. Is that no one. was there paying seventy five. The entire audience had come over from Nathan Burton's and they're the dollar deal. Yeah and it was a perceived deal because when I'd say because you're right but for you twenty-five now go ooh my and the sign said seventy five dollars. There's at planet Hollywood. My point is that everybody was there weren't they weren't selling for seventy five resolved for twenty-five right. Yeah I would literally take the tickets. I would run the credit cards myself. Hey Hey welcome vulcan my show and they would line up on the stairs. I would go in through the kitchen I would open. I would see it everybody I would go and I would do the show ahead. A remote control ipod Velcro to my belt and I bought a spotlight off craigslist. And I would literally say I would come out and do on warm up and say hey and just a minute I'm gonNA run to the kitchen guys yell L.. Cheer Scream for freak out and I would go turn the spotlight on and hit the music and I would bang some pans in the kitchen. People who laugh and I'd run out. I do the show sell the merchandise. Do the meet-and-greet pack it. All Up and do it again and I did that for. I did that for years and you know the I. Here's another shocker. We didn't make much money right a couple of bucks but it was my training. It was it was Do do everything. Yeah everything and you you learn how to how to perform mostly in. I didn't know that I didn't know that. Damon Kosta He. He saw me there You Know Caesar's folks folks Kind of buzz about town people were saying. Hey there's a schedule at dinner show is actually pretty good pretty funny. So what were you able to do. I mean you're not on your unicycle in that close are you so you know what it worked out really well because I didn't repeat any material from the full Dingo at Reiner show so the Flamingo. Obviously huge drew. I can do the big stuff. I was balancing the ladder..
