The many moods of Engelbert

Music · Reviews

Our man in Las Vegas, Chris Nichols, reports back to artsmeme World Headquarters with this photo essay of a recent club performance by Engelbert Humperdinck (born Arnold George Dorsey, 2 May 1936).

Nichols attended the 83-year-old crooner’s Dec 1, 2019 show at the Orleans Showroom in Vegas. Accompanying his photo essay, Nichols reduced the show to a single word, “smoooooth.”

“The show really was fantastic,” added Nichols with earnestness. “I just loved how committed he was.”

Chris also shared video of Humperdinck’s proud presentation of his 11-year-old granddaughter Olivia Taliaferro on stage. “Sing it!,” he instructed her. “You never know who’s in the audience.” Sage advice from a veteran.
