Trina Johnson-Finn is back, thankfully, performing in Las Vegas this Sunday, Aug. 23. It’s her first time on stage since her release after spending more than 100 days in South American jail, as previously reported by Las Vegas Backstage Access.
Johnson-Finn has a 90-minute show at the Bootlegger Bistro on Sunday, Aug. 23, starting at 8:30 p.m.
She had been held in Suriname on charges that she impersonated past Las Vegas singer Toni Braxton to defraud a boisterous and demanding concert crowd. She was acquitted in June.
A tribute to rhythm and blues legend Ruth Brown will be on April 9 at the Bootlegger Bistro in Las Vegas.
The Tony Award-winning Brown, who also won a Grammy, died at age 78 on November 17, 2006 in Henderson, Nevada.
Her original Bootlegger band and son Ronnie McPhatter will be among the large number of musicians attending, including Dennis Bono, Regi Brown, Jimmy Castor, Sonny Charles of the Checkmates, Wendy Edmead of The Pointer Sisters, and Earl and Sonny Turner of The Platters.
A $5 admission donation will be charged, with all proceeds going to The Society of Singers. The Bootlegger Bistro is located at 7700 Las Vegas Blvd. South, No. 1, in Las Vegas (702-736-4939).
