Lisa Marie is a longtime Las Vegas resident who graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from The Boston Conservatory of Music. She also has a certificate of attendance from Berklee College of Music. After graduating, she toured the U.S. with Thank You For the Music: A Modern Tribute to ABBA, and then traveled across the Mediterranean and Africa as the F2 for the Inaugural cast of Holland America’s MS Noordam.

After returning home, Lisa Marie became the singer of PIN UP at the Stratosphere and has been a part of the show for 7 months. She is known for her sultry demeanor, distinctive vocals, and personable and striking stage presence. Outside of her career as a vocalist, she enjoys acting on film (she’s performed the leading role for two award-winning Las Vegas-based films) and on stage (over 50 production shows since childhood).

Kenny Davidsen’s Celebrity Piano Bar started on March 8, 2013, and runs every Friday night from 10pm-2am in the T-Spot Lounge at the Tuscany Hotel & Casino. It features Kenny Davidsen on keyboard, vocals, and as musical director, with Mike Beans Benigno (MJ Live) on drums. This coming Friday, Dennis Blair (a comedian who opened for George Carlin for 20 years) and Jon Celentano (Guilty Pleasures, Good Vibrations) will begin as permanent members of the band. Dennis plays guitar and bass, Jon plays bass and saxophone.

“This Friday will feature Lisa Marie Smith for the first time,” said Davidsen. “Lisa is somebody who I’ve wanted on the show for a long time. She’s an amazing talent, and she’s come by frequently to sing a song or two on various nights. As soon as she told me that PIN-UP would be dark this week, we booked this date for her to be featured on the show.”

Kenny Davidsen’s Celebrity Piano Bar is a cabaret, or a singer’s showcase, featuring a different singer every week. Featured singers have included Kelly Clinton-Holmes, Savannah Smith, Anne Martinez, Lorena Peril, Jassen Allen and Skye Dee Miles. The featured singer of the week will usually sing 20-25 songs of their choosing. Also, by invitation only, professional singers that are in the audience will come up and sing one or two songs. But the show is not an open mic.

“We also occasionally will break the format of the show to have themed shows,” explained Davidsen. “On those nights, instead of just one featured singer, we ask a bunch of singers in town to sing one or two songs based on an idea.”

In December, 2013, they had “Funny songs” night, featuring the music of Mel Brooks. On February 14, 2014, they had “Songs of Love…and Hate”, where over 20 singers each sang one love song and one hate song. On April 25, 2014, they had “One-Hit Wonders” night, where over 20 singers each sang one song by a one-hit wonder. On May 16, 2014, Michelle Johnson sang Carole King’s “Tapestry” from front to back.
