Jason Egan arrived in Las Vegas as a recent graduate of the University of Nebraska and a dream to create a horror empire on the Strip. He has since founded Fright Dome at Circus Circus, a five-acre attraction that takes over five acres of the Adventuredome theme park. Fright Dome features six haunted houses, multiple scare zones, thrill rides in the dark, macabre magicians, strolling zombies and much, much more.
Sound Collage uses voices where instruments usually fill the task, sampling from the Andrews Sisters, The Beatles and Lorde in a wide range of artists. The vocal quartet of Joshua Danger Elly Brown, Shannon Joyel and Jaclyn McSpadden headline Myron’s Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts at 8 p.m. Tuesday. They outline their formation, their use of “loops” and some “bad corporates.”
Daniel Emmet is a rising star as a showman and vocalist whose show samples contemporary numbers and classics. With director Barry Lather (Usher, Beyonce, Carrie Underwood) at his side and Jerry Williams (Donny & Marie) as music director, Emmet is headlining at The Space at 7 p.m. Sunday.
Michelle Johnson, Las Vegas’s First Lady of Jazz, is a popular singer around town at such venues as the Dispensary Lounge, Bootlegger Bistro and Myron’s Cabaret Jazz at the Smith Center. She returns to Cabaret Jazz for “Tapestry: Unraveled,” a tribute to Carole King. The show is 8 p.m. Sept. 15.

Popular Las Vegas artists Rockie Brown and Jason Tanzer have teamed on the new album “Rockie Brown Vol. 1,” a collection of “trash pop,” which is being premiered Sept. 8 at the Sayers Club at SLS Las Vegas.
