Vegas show off Strip stirs up jambalaya of talent, raises funds for charity
MARCH 1, 2017 — It’s just after 9 p.m. and the room is buzzing with energy at the burgeoning entertainment and event venue off Strip, The Space Las Vegas. The $5 shots are flowing and the Mondays Dark audience is psyched. There’s only one thing this moment needs: More cowbell.
The privilege to play the coveted instrument on stage with the band (all professional musicians from the Las Vegas Strip) comes at a price tag of $100—a nudge toward a nightly goal of $10,000 for a charitable cause. Several hands raise $100 bills into the air. The more cowbell, the better.
We’re not lawyers, we’re not doctors. We’re entertainers.
Clever nuances, such as the $100 Cowbell Jam, add spice to the overall flavor of Mondays Dark. The twice-monthly, cabaret-style show has been stirring up a jambalaya of talent from the Strip, Hollywood and Broadway, for almost four years. Entertainers with a passion for philanthropy and performance join together on a night that’s traditionally dark in the theater world.
