Following sold-out performances of her acclaimed show earlier this year, enchanting chanteuse Melody Sweets returns to The Smith Center with her acclaimed show The Sweets’ Spot, this time with an all-new roster of glamour-puss performers, tricks and treats, and just in time for Halloween. This one night only extravaganza is sure to satisfy your ‘Sweets’ tooth as Melody and friends prepare to dazzle audiences at Cabaret Jazz at The Smith Center on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 9:30 pm
“I love performing at The Smith Center and I am so excited to be invited back for a fourth time!” says Sweets. “Being able to purr-form my show with my friends in such a gorgeous venue is a thrill – and, since Halloween is around the corner, you can bet we have some thrills up our sleeves … and in our g-strings! And, there’s also a costume contest!
The evening of decadence will be filled with dazzling eye candy, specialty cocktails, glamorous burlesque, enchanting original music, classic covers, kinky cabaret, and a variety of Vaudeville-style variety acts. In addition to Sweets’ All-Star, 10-piece band featuring Emmy Award-nominee, Lon Bronson and Jassen Allen, audiences will be also be entertained by local burlesque favorites such as Miss Exotic World Kalani Kokonuts & LouLou D'vil, international pin-up queens Ms. Redd & Bettina May, and King of Boylesque - Mr. Gorgeous (making this a Boylesque debut at the Smith Center), will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
Following her sold-out Cabaret Jazz performances, critics agreed that The Sweets’ Spot is a definite crowd-pleaser. “We have seen what a Melody Sweets solo show would look like, and it’s wildly entertaining,” said John Katsilometes of the Las Vegas Review Journal. And, Robin Leach said: “The sexy brunette is a powerhouse vocalist…I hope that she gets to have this as her own show at a full-time venue in Las Vegas. It’s highly entertaining, her songs are thoroughly enjoyable, the band is blasting with brilliance, and the glamorous girls look gorgeous."
No matter what venue she is in, Sweets captivates audiences with a voice reminiscent of a golden era, but with a modern, eclectic edge that renders her sound timeless. Currently starring as the “Green Fairy” in the hit show, ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace, Melody brings an intimate, yet uninhibited production to the stage with this special performance at Cabaret Jazz.
The critically-acclaimed Sweets has been called “amazing” by music icon and Grammy Award-winner Sting, and has been featured in countless publications including The New York Times, New York Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Las Vegas Magazine, and The Village Voice among others.
