Almost Angels Still Wowin’ ‘Em at Ego Lounge every Thursday through Saturday
ATLANTIC CITY — Last Thursday, April 12, the Taj premiered its amped-up Almost Angels act in a special media event. Along with the Angels, several other amenities new to Ego Lounge were also debuted, including burlesque-style dancers performing on mini-stages during and in-between the Angels’ 50-minute sets, and “dealer-tainers” running blackjack tables in Ego’s club-like setting.
“I think the hotel did a great job incorporating the freestyle dancers, and trying to bring the energy to all areas, and not just on the stage,” says Angels’ co-producer Dan Mulhern. “When the Angels finish their set we have a whole crew of dancers who come into this room and keep the energy going. So it’s really about not letting the energy levels drop.”
A typical Angels’ set list might span the gamut of old school dance, hip hop, pop music or R&B. Last Thursday’s set list included “I Got A Feeling” (by the Black Eyed Peas), “U Make Me Feel” (Cobra Starship), “We Found Love” (Rihanna) “Beep” (Pussycat Dolls), “Only Girl” (Rihanna), a rap medley, “Hold It Against Me” (Britney Spears), “ET” (Katy Perry), “Ass Back Home” (Gym Class Heroes), “Give Me Everything” (Pitbull) and a Janet Jackson medley.
