WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas! This week on the radio we’re talking with Jeff Kutash, who’s been booking, producing and directing entertainment in France, Germany, Japan, Australia, Israel, Spain, England and Las Vegas for more than 20 years. He’s worked with everyone from Steve Wynn (the guy with his name on a $2.7 billion hotel) to local diva Bette Midler, and he got started here in Hawaii. Then we check in with ex-pat resident Piilani Tandal, now a slot shift manager at the California and Main Street Station.

Send us your Vegas tips and enter to win a pair of tickets to see “V” the Ultimate Variety Show. Arlene Yano writes: “I want you to know that we really enjoyed the show and the variety of talents. Wow, those guys on the unicycle were great … the comedian/host is soooooo funny! The Russian acrobats were incredible. The guy that did all the quick changes was fun and entertaining … and so was the magician. And I like the fact that all of the entertainers came out to the door as we exited. GOOD SHOW!!!”
