Legendary Entertainment At The Stirling Club

Kelly ClintonWhile The Stirling Club's own Kelly Clinton was attending "A Salute to Clint Holmes" Friars Club event in New York City with guests that included everyone from Lee Roy Reems to Liza Minnelli, she was honored as the recipient of the 9th Annual Bella Award for "Las Vegas Female Star & Entertainer."

"She is all that, and has been for many years. Accepting the award on her behalf were her close friend Lena Prima and mother, Ellie Clinton Issa. Holmes still is trying to get his eponymous play to Broadway and says the next likely venue is a 'major theater on the West Coast.' More to come, we can expect." — John Katsilometes, Las Vegas Sun

Congratulations Kelly, from all your friends at The Stirling Club. For those who don't know, the Bella Award is presented to outstanding people in Nevada for exemplifying a positive lifestyle, fashion, and entertainment. She joins a long list of amazing people including The Platters, The Coasters, and Andre Agassi.

Live Entertainment Every Wednesday Through Saturday.

In addition to hosting her own show on Saturday nights at The Stirling Club, Clinton serves as the entertainment director. As such, she is responsible for lining up all the weekly entertainment that seems easy to take for granted at the private club.

In addition to more than a dozen special guests in August, she had introduced members to Carmine Mandia, Mark O'Toole, Mark Verabian, Stephanie Calvert, Ronnie Rose, and dozens of other top entertainers. On Saturdays, it's not even uncommon for Clinton to pull entertainers from the audience and ask them to sing a few songs in the extremely intimate setting.

Who have some of these surprise guests included? Barry Manilow, Wayne Newton, Sheena Easton, Bill Medley, Jack Jones, and, of course, our favorite entertainer in residence ... member Clint Holmes. With such surprise guests commonplace, The Stirling Club continues to be one of the most unpredictable venues in Las Vegas. (In fact, Elisa Fiorillo, who normally performs on Saturday, recently took a temporary leave to tour with Prince.)

If you're visiting Las Vegas or are a resident and want to experience what it might be like to enjoy live performances with all the magic of a backstage after party, contact Kathleen Gustafson at 702-784-4603 for a guest pass. Gustafson will also be happy to arrange a complete tour of the facility.

CitizenEffect National Day Of Action.

CitizenGulfWhile there is no event taking place in Las Vegas, The Stirling Club Courtier would like to give a shout out to CitizenGulf National Day of Action. This national event is taking place in 20 different cities across the country with event organizers hoping to raise funds for afflicted fishing families in the Gulf Coast.

Participating cities include Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Fredericksburg, Greenboro, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Mobile, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Francisco, Sanibel Island, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, Santa Monica, and Washington D.C. For specific locations, visit the Gulf Coast Benefit.

In lieu of attending one of these New Orleans-style events with live jazz, blues, or Zydeco music, please consider making an online donation to support this important effort. Proceeds will be used to help provide education to fishing families who lost their businesses during the Gulf Coast oil spill crisis.
