Jimmy Mazz
Las Vegas Legends is a musical journey thru Jimmy’s favorite songs by a wide variety of performers from the classics to today’s contemporary artists hot off the Las Vegas Strip over the Years.

Jimmy’s high energy and enthusiasm is tempered only by his ultra smooth vocals as he creates his impressions of Tom Jones, Englebert Humperdinck, Tony Orlando, Bobby Darin, adding the crooner the voices of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole, then quickly moves on to glide thru the voices of Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker, Lou Rawls, Tony Bennett, Frankie Valli and Neil Diamond just to name a few. Yes, he’ll certainly stop and focus on “The King”, Elvis Presley with a very amusing parody, but keeps moving as he belts out the hits and covers many more greats like Billy Joel, Michael Buble’, Elton John, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Louis Armstrong, Jimmy Durante’, Stevie Wonder, and maybe even The Boss, Bruce Springsteen. And be sure that in typical Jimmy Mazz style, there’s always a few surprises thrown in for good measure. Never the same show twice.
