Last summer when the Weekly chatted with Pia Zadora about living in Las Vegas, she rhapsodized about feeling at home in the casino town where she opened for Sinatra back in the day. Describing life here as a best of both worlds scenario—with privacy at her house tucked near the mountains and the ability to perform now and again—she seemed eager to dive in completely, starting with an evening at the Smith Center’s Cabaret Jazz, sharing the stage with Vincent Falcone and a small orchestra.
This week, Zadora and Falcone, formerly Sinatra’s musical director and pianist, unite again, this time for an ongoing series of weekend performances at Piero’s, where she’ll perform old standards with a small quartet in the cozy and intimate lounge area.
Once a mob hangout and now home to a who’s who of local players, Piero’s embodies the type of old-school Vegas elegance that makes for a nice pairing with the 59-year-old songstress with a legendary and sometimes controversial past.
Pia Zadora Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays beginning at 9 p.m. $30 includes two drinks. Piero’s, 355 Convention Center Drive, 369-2305.
