The Danny Gans of Argentina pays tribute

We've pointed out enough self-professed would-be Danny Gans successors from Las Vegas to Des Moines to Boston to London, to end any argument that the legendary musical impressionist who died mysteriously last May 1st was unknown beyond the Las Vegas Strip, and thereby unworthy of attention, investigation or justice. Today, however, that evidence becomes a bit more irrefutable with the posting of a tribute to The Man of Many Voices by Martin Russo, El Hombre de las Mils Voces-- known here as The Danny Gans of Argentina.

Martin is known throughout the Latin world for his dead-on and hilarious impressions of stars like La Mosca, Andrea Bocelli, Julio Iglesias, Luis Miguel and Ricky Martin. "Tribute to Danny Gans" includes his takes on Lionel Richie, The Bee Gees, Nat "King"-- and Natalie-- Cole, James Brown, Rod Stewart, Earth Wind & Fire, Elvis, Tom Jones, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra, paying tribute to the man who inspired him-- and with his own Las Vegas experience, the performer whose work he would be honored to carry on.

Don't sell yourself short. Vegas is waiting for you! Call Chip Lightman, Danny Gans' former manager!! He is now the "King" of all of the managers and promoters in Las Vegas. Just ask him... He made Danny a STAR!!

Or, well...
