Headliner of the Las Vegas Strip David Perrico lends support behind the Fox 5 anchor Feven Kay, who is still online to host a show featuring Perrico’s Pop Strings Orchestra this weekend.
Kay, who spent several weeks off the air after being accused of reckless driving after his arrest in March, is still scheduled to host Perrico’s next live show from The Space at 4 p.m. Sunday.
Kay was fined $ 1,000 last Wednesday and sentenced to driving school after the incident, in which she was found asleep at the wheel of her Audi at 7:30 a.m. on March 20.
Fox 5’s Morning Anchor, Kay hosted Perrico’s most recent live concert on February 26, also from The Space. The show was themed Black History Month. Sunday’s concert is a series of songs from Disney movies. In-person tickets are sold out, but the show is available online ($ 23.50 per pop) at stellartickets.com.
“Feven is a total pro, have my full support,” Perrico said Wednesday morning after hearing the news of Kay’s conviction. “I can’t wait for her to put on the Disney concert.”
In a statement broadcast last week on his station, Kay said, “A lot of you have noticed that I’ve been off the air for a few weeks. As I move forward, I want you to know that I learned from this and that I will continue to learn. “
Kay had been off the airwaves for at least three weeks before she returned on Monday. Efforts to reach her on Wednesday morning were unsuccessful.
Sunday’s show is the latest from popular group Perrico, who for four years has been in residence at Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesars Palace. The orchestra includes seven string players and singers Lily arce (who is married to the conductor) and Fletch Wolcott.
Singers Sunday includes an array of Vegas favorites: Serena Henry, Noybel Gorgoy, Lorena Peril, Francesca Camus, Christine Shebeck, Autumn Grayce, Lauren Ashlee and the owner of the space Mark Shunock. Shunock is reprising “Hakuna Matata” his role as Timba of his time in “The Lion King”.
Perrico is still waiting to know when and even where Pop Strings will relaunch his live residency. The group’s next performance will be on Saturday at the Nevada Ballet Theater Black & White Gala at Wynn Las Vegas, in honor of Larry and Camille Ruvo. Saturday’s gala marks Perrico’s eighth consecutive performance at the NBT gala.
