Trumpeter and singer Brian Newman will reimagine the storied history of the Las Vegas lounge by bringing a new show, Brian Newman After Dark, to NoMad Las Vegas, the newest luxury resort experience located within Park MGM. Currently serving as the bandleader for the Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano resident show at Park Theater, Newman will begin performances in NoMad Restaurant Thursday, May 30, complemented with a beverage menu curated by award-winning Bar Director Leo Robitschek.
Newman has created Brian Newman After Dark to be an ode to vintage Las Vegas, providing guests a late-night rendezvous filled with great music, good friends and craft cocktails. The intimate evening will be filled with special guest performers from New York City, Las Vegas and beyond.
Newman has made a name for himself as a consummate entertainer on the New York City club circuit in recent years with extended engagements at The Oak Room, Birdland, The McKittrick Hotel and The Rose Bar. His recently released debut album, SHOWBOAT, proves that Jazz isn’t what it used to be. The album provides Newman with the opportunity to break the art form out of its constraints, allowing the jazz influences of Miles Davis and Chet Baker to find room with his love of rock bands such as Nirvana, Beck and Thin Lizzy.
Newman recently co-produced the soundtrack version of “La Vie En Rose” for the film “A Star Is Born” with Lady Gaga and was her bandleader and trumpeter for the Cheek to Cheek project with Tony Bennett. Both albums debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart. They originally met in the downtown New York City club scene where Newman was a bartender and they discovered their shared love for jazz and tattoos (the two share the same tattoo on their right arms of Miles Davis’ trumpet taken from a sketch done by Tony Bennett).
Hailing from Cleveland, Newman played trumpet for his local high school jazz band, but also honed in on his skills by listening to his musical influences. He attended the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music but decided to end his formal training and move to New York City in 2003. During that time, he hustled for club gigs, recorded on hip-hop sessions and tended bar. His exposure to the music scene expanded and he landed a regular gig at Plaza Hotel’s famed Oak Room where Stefani Germanotta first heard him perform. Their friendship led to Brian’s involvement in the Cheek to Cheek project and the global world tour. His engaging stage persona, musical chops, suave suits and jazz/rock communion has created a unique sound and sensibility.
