Hall of Fame broadcaster Al Bernstein is set to start another major fight weekend with his music show. He’s taking the stage on Thursday, Sept. 28 at the Tuscany Suites & Casino. There will be two performances at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. in the Piazza Lounge. The best part? There’s no cover charge for entry.
A couple of nights later, on September 30, the Canelo Alvarez-Jermell Charlo mega fight will be held in Las Vegas. Bernstein is also a part of the broadcast team for the SHOWTIME pay-per-view telecast for this event. It’s worth noting that Al is revisiting his show at the Tuscany, the one he had on July 28, just a couple of nights before the Terrance Crawford-Errol Spence fight. Expect to hear tunes from the Great American songbook, as well as a mix of Country and Blues. Moreover, there’s a boxing trivia portion where the audience gets a chance to win prizes, courtesy of SHOWTIME Network.
Accompanying Al for this musical event is guest vocalist, Celina Sasso. Taking charge of the melodies on the keyboards will be Kenny Davidsen, acting as the musical director. Sharing his enthusiasm, Al expressed, “Las Vegas is about to witness a vibrant weekend. I’m thrilled to return to the Tuscany. The Piazza lounge ranks among the premier music venues in Las Vegas. Every evening, you can witness stellar performances by gifted singers and musicians in its warm and cozy ambience. I’m blessed with an amazing team for September 28th, and together, we aim to offer boxing enthusiasts a delightful prelude to their big fight weekend.”
Historically, Bernstein’s music acts have been a precursor to significant boxing events. He began this tradition way back in 1987. Back then, he showcased three nights of musicals at Caesars Palace right before the Marvin Hagler-Sugar Ray Leonard fight. His musical preludes to top-leve fights have graced other renowned venues, including the Las Vegas Hilton, Riviera, and Mandalay Bay.
