Laura Shaffer has been singing in major Las Vegas casinos for the past 20 years, including the Bellagio, MGM, Mandalay Bay, Aria, and Mirage. She is also the featured singer in the Bruce Harper Big Band.

“The Julie London Songbook" is not a tribute album but rather Laura Shaffer's take on twelve top Julie London songs, including 'Cry Me a River,' 'Go Slow,' 'Dont'cha Go 'Way Mad,' and 'Baby Won't You Please Come Home.' She is accompanied by the top Las Vegas musicians including legendary pianist Charlie Shaffer, drummer Bruce Harper, and sax man Arno Marsh, as well as several other top Vegas musicians.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
