Remember when I said, “the modern-day showgirl comes in many forms, shapes and sizes … In Vegas, they don’t even have to be women?” Today I’m going to bend the rules even further. I present to you: “Confessions of a Juggler.”

Every young adult comes to that crossroad where he decides what he wants to be in life. Some become lawyers, some become doctors and then, there's Jeff Civillico ...

For a singing showgirl, one of the songs you must have in your repertoire is “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Every sporting event has an anthem singer, and it’s always a great honor to be that singer. Every American shares the bond of knowing the words to this special song.

They say the Vegas theater world is like one giant cruise ship for performers. To a certain extent, I can see how that’s possible. Many of us enjoy the sexy and salty sea life for a handful of years, and then realize it may be more practical to create a life on land.

After countless nautical miles sailing the ocean blue, I had set my sights on land and set my feet upon new sand. Actually, it’s questionable how new the sand was at the Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay, but it looked amazing!
