Jim Caruso’s “Cast Party” returns to The Smith Center’s Cabaret Jazz Room

Jim Caruso brought his fabulous open mic night “Cast Party” back to the Smith Center’s Cabaret Jazz Room this week, and the return engagement proved once again – this is one of the best “shows” in Las Vegas.

Already running 10 years in NYC at Birdland, this marks the second time Caruso, along with partner in crime/music director Billy Stritch, have played the Cabaret Jazz room bringing together some of Las Vegas’ best and brightest talents to drop by and perform. The format provides for a wide swath of talent, style and content. You never know what you’re going to get with “Cast Party” – and this evening was packed with talent.

In addition to Caruso and Stritch, just a few of the local luminaries included Frankie Moreno, Jasmine Trias (American Idol), Mark Shunock (Rock of Ages), Reva Rice (Vegas the Show), Maren Wade (Vegas the Show), Skye Dee Miles, Pascale Elia, Philip Officer, Amanda Avila and many more. Check out the pics below. As always, click on the pic to enlarge.

And the next time “Cast Party” hits Las Vegas don’t miss it.
