LAS VEGAS (August 9, 2023) – Trumpeter and singer Brian Newman today announced 12 new performance dates of his late-night show Brian Newman: AFTER DARK. Newman will perform at the NoMad Library at NoMad Las Vegas with all shows scheduled to begin at 11:30 p.m.

Serving as the bandleader for the LADY GAGA JAZZ & PIANO resident show at Dolby Live, Brian Newman: AFTER DARK is reimagining the storied Las Vegas lounge by bringing a swinging, cocktail-swilling ode to “Vintage Las Vegas” to NoMad Library at Park MGM, where classic Vegas vibes never sleep. Seizing the spirit made famous by Louis Prima in the late ‘50s and ‘60s, this widely heralded late-night romp is the modern version of what it once was. Filled with great music and new friends as well as featuring special guest performers from New York, Las Vegas, and beyond, AFTER DARK will be an intimate evening of stars, singing sirens, burlesque queens and icons on stage and screen.

The intimate evenings will feature Newman’s partner in everything – burlesque star Angie Pontani. Her quintessential dazzling choreography and performance is the Keely Smith to Newman’s Louis Prima.

NoMad Library will offer a menu of handcrafted cocktails, wine and small bites for showgoers to enjoy during Newman’s performances. The evening also will feature special unannounced guest performers. During prior runs at NoMad Las Vegas, special guests included multi-award-winning superstar Lady Gaga, Jaclyn McSpadden of Postmodern Jukebox, Ashanti, Robby Krieger from The Doors, Terence Blanchard, Puddles Pity Party, Morgan James of Postmodern Jukebox, Emily King and Kelsea Ballerini, among many others.

Tickets starting at $49, plus applicable services charges, go on sale Friday, Aug. 11 at 10 a.m. PT and can be purchased online at or at any MGM Resorts box office. Members of MGM Rewards, MGM Resorts International’s loyalty rewards program, will receive access to a presale beginning Thursday, Aug. 10 at 10 a.m. PT. Must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

Newman has made a name for himself as a consummate entertainer on the New York City club circuit in recent years with extended engagements at The Oak Room, Birdland, The McKittrick Hotel and The Rose Bar. His debut album, SHOWBOAT, proves that Jazz isn’t what it used to be. The album provided Newman the opportunity to break the art form out of its constraints, allowing the jazz influences of Miles Davis and Chet Baker to find room with his love of rock bands such as Nirvana, Beck and Thin Lizzy. His latest album, Electric Lounge, was released November 2020.

Newman co-produced the soundtrack version of “La Vie En Rose” for the film “A Star Is Born” with Lady Gaga and was her bandleader and trumpeter for the Cheek to Cheek project with Tony Bennett. Both albums debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 chart. They originally met in the downtown New York City club scene where Newman was a bartender and they discovered their shared love for jazz and tattoos (the two share the same tattoo on their right arms of Miles Davis’ trumpet taken from a sketch done by Tony Bennett). Newman also was the bandleader and trumpeter on Love For Sale, Lady Gaga’s GRAMMY-Award winning album with Tony Bennett, which was released October 2021. He also was featured on the “Love For Sale” TV special which aired on CBS.

Hailing from Cleveland, Newman played trumpet for his local high school jazz band, but also honed his skills listening to his musical influences. He attended the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music but decided to end his formal training and move to New York City in 2003. During that time, he hustled for club gigs, recorded on hip-hop sessions and tended bar. His exposure to the music scene expanded and he landed a regular gig at Plaza Hotel’s famed Oak Room where Stefani Germanotta first heard him perform. Their friendship led to Brian’s involvement in the Cheek to Cheek project and the global world tour. His engaging stage persona, musical chops, suave suits and jazz/rock union has created a unique sound and sensibility.
