The Johnny Vegas All-Star Band is one of Ottawa’s favourite musical acts. Patterned after Rat Pack crooners Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr., Johnny Vegas brings back a style not seen since the early sixties in Las Vegas. Johnny’s witty banter and thoughtful insight into the music bring the audience back to a time when they were part of the show. Complete with a thick catalogue of standards from Sinatra to Presley, and styles that include country and disco, Johnny Vegas is the consummate lounge entertainer. The band, made up of seasoned performers, is one of the best jazz quartets in the city.

For dancing or for listening, the Johnny Vegas All-Star Band always leave audiences wanting more.
