Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:
Hello from Las Vegas! Glad to report that Roy (Siegfried and Roy) Horn is stable and recovering. Medical news is limited, and he will have a long road to recovery, but things seem to look positive.
Been a fun week here! We enjoyed the opening of the Hot Rod Grille in Henderson, which drew a variety of revelers including The Amazing Jonathan, La Cage star Frank Marino, the ever-present Monti Rock, and a host of local celebs.
Wednesday night none other than Lance Burton turned up to see Twin Keys (see feature story) at Harrah’s La Playa Lounge. He signed a couple autographs, we said hello, and he settled in to enjoy the evening.
Soon after, two birthday girls got the special treatment as they sat on the baby grand pianos while all the men in the room were summoned to come to the state, get down on bended knee, and sing You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling a la Top Gun. Just part of the fun and wackiness of a dueling pianos show! Little did these lucky ladies know that one of their serenaders was Lance, down on a knee singing and having fun with everyone else.
Lance will be on Hollywood Squares the first week of December, and we’ll remind you as it gets closer.
Hot Rod Grille – just opened in the Hot Rod Plaza in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson and features:
- Dining area designed in garage deco theme with elevated red and white vinyl booths and freestanding tables.

Dueling Piano Twins At Harrah’s
Twin Keys is the only all-female dueling pianos show in the world. Even more amazing is that Twin Keys is identical twins blazing on identical grand pianos!
The twins, Kimberley and Tamara Pinegar, take the stage and have you laughing and singing along in no time. In keeping with the tradition of the ôdueling pianosö genre, the show is a high-energy, all-request, rocking, sing-along that incorporates audience participation and comedy (rated PG or R depending on the venue). Audience members are encouraged to get up and dance, as well!
The twins have been playing piano and singing since the age of six. They began touring as singer/dancers with a national corporate entertainment company. They fronted thirteen to fifteen-piece show bands at events and parties all over the world, including Super Bowl and Olympic events, parties in Barcelona, Maui, Cancun, Munich, Bahamas, Japan and Grand Cayman, not to mention most US states.
The twins have performed at parties for Reebok, Time, Sports Illustrated, Playboy TV NFL, NHL, Anheuser Busch, and the casts of televisionÆs Ally McBeal, The Practice, The Wonder Years and Picket Fences.
In 2000, Kimberley and Tamara decided to fuse their singing, dancing and comedy experience with piano to develop a dueling pianos show. Wonder Twin Powers Activate! Within six months, the brand new Twin Keys Dueling Piano Show was picked up by Disney Cruise Line and by dueling pianos clubs from the east to west coasts.
In February of this 2003, the show was brought to Harrah’s Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Twin Keys performs Tuesday through Saturday at 9 PM in La PLaya Lounge inside Harrah’s.
Kimberley and Tamara began playing piano duets at the age of six, but they had to share the family piano. Now they each have their own grand piano, so watch out ù ItÆs a duel you donÆt want to miss!
