You will probably rub shoulders with Paul Anka's band.... in the audience...
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is.

Well, as you may, or may not know, Ms Eliza James plays in both bands, and it works out pretty well... Burt is always first, mind you.
A number of the band members live in Vegas and just like to see Eliza, and Burt.

John Altman (mega talented saxophonist and composer... he wrote 'always look on the bright side of life,' with Eric Idle) is also a friend of Ms Eliza, and hangs out at Burt's shows in the UK... as do a veritable cornucopia of Hollywood's best session musicians.... in fact _The_Place_To_Be_ is at the Lucky Strike Bowling Alley in Hollywood when it is given over to Jam sessions... my sister and brother in law went there and pretty much got a private show with Jackson Browne...

My bad... I am out of schedule... Ultimate Jam night moved to the Whisky-a-go-go, and Soundcheck Live is at the Lucky Strike.

It's not mellow like Burt, so take earplugs

Thanks, that's interesting.
Wish me luck - last time I bought tickets to fly to the USA for a Burt concert, he cancelled it...
