Get The Funk Out! Classic Group Cameo Coming To Westgate Las Vegas

With an in-your-face stage presence and a classic funk sound, Cameo returns to the stage with a new residency show at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. The residency kicks off on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, in the Westgate Cabaret. As one of the most influential groups in funk music in the 1970s and 1980s, Cameo will perform weekly from Wednesday through Saturday at 7:00 PM.

Founded by vocalist Larry Blackmon in the early 1970s, Cameo was comparable to Parliament Funkadelic early on. However, with hits such as “Word Up,” the group became a trendsetter throughout the 1970s and 1980s and even influenced early R&B and hip-hop acts. "Word Up" made it to number six on the pop chart in 1986, giving them their biggest bite of the mainstream.

Their debut album Cardiac Arrest featured the hit “Rigor Mortis,” and established the group as a mainstay on the dance floor. Cameo released a string of gold-certified albums including Cameosis, which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot R&B Albums chart. Their 1986 album Word Up! went platinum and climbed to number eight on the Billboard 200 chart, becoming the group’s most successful album.

Cameo will perform Wednesday through Saturday at 7:00 PM in the Westgate Cabaret at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. Tickets prices start at $79 and are on sale at the Westgate Box Office, online at or by calling 800-222-5361.All prices include taxes and fees. Guests must be 18 years or older.
