Zebra Lounge Has Got Talent, But Less Rocking Out This Month

They've got hair metal in the Zebra Lounge, the Bourbon Room and Rock of Ages (soon to hit the Venetian stage). But, they are mixing it up a little at the Palazzo with a more laid back, acoustic vibe this month.

Winner of the fifth season of America's Got Talent in 2010, Michael Grimm will be performing in a limited residency at the Palazzo's Zebra Lounge with two 90-minute shows a night. Dates are November 18th to the 21st and the 26th to the 30th. Bluesy and soulful they call it. We call it a shift away from their usual lounge fare.

Never by actual foresighted design, we've been to the Zebra Lounge a number of times and it's often great people watching. It seems packed, but there is a steady turnover of seats. Many visitors get very into the music. Really into it. Sometimes, it becomes a better show than the one on stage.

The resident cover band, The Peter Monroy Band, normally rocks the joint. Their website even loads with a music clip that sound exactly as they do on stage, a version of Guns N' Roses, "Sweet Child O' Mine." They also like to do Metallica's "Enter Sandman" during their sets. A long version. Really long, like, is the original really this long, long? Folks love it. Peter Monroy is so hard rockin' they even created and named a cocktail for him at the lounge. It's created with Maker’s Mark, Cointreau, lemon juice and honey. Maybe, the honey is medicinal.

We actually briefly met Michael Grimm at the Pinkberry launch and he seemed a very nice chap, so we hate to pass any judgement on his musical chops and material. So, here's an idea of what we imagine he'll be performing. And, if that's too down tempo, remember the Bourbon Room is just across the casino floor.

Michael Grimm will perform at Zebra Room at the Palazzo. Scheduled times are 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
