January – The month when many folks make New Year's resolutions. Some begin in January, others end almost as quickly. We checked in with a few of our Las Vegas notables to see if they have any 2016 resolutions.

Jazzin' Jeanne Brei, the tap dancing and high-kicking singer with The Speakeasy Swingers, resolves that in 2016, she's going to pay off all those 2011 medical bills from when she broke her wrist in a fall at the LVCC - and she's going to do crystal healing to become more focused. She also resolves to become a better friend to those she loves and much more organized (with less clutter!).

You can see Jazzin' Jeanne perform every first Thursday in the ballroom at the Italian American Club where her 1930s swing band produces "The Swanky Supper Club Soiree." Next show is February 4 and her band will be celebrating Mardi Gras by adding some Dixieland songs to their Great American Songbook repertoire.

Robin Leach who spends his time with the rich and famous of Las Vegas told me that, “

Last year I succeeded in a juice fast for the first five days of January. For 2016 I plan to do a ten-day juice fast. My other New Years resolution is to increase my 7am morning workout  capped with an increased run to 20-minutes  five days a week and add to my Pilates workouts twice weekly. I have to slim trim down my stomach of champagne and caviar excesses.” Robin is currently a Vegas DeLuxe columnist for the Las Vegas Sun.

Crazy Jay is CEO of the on line radio station and the host and producer The Rocking Comedy Show. His New years resolution is the same as 2015 - “Stop to take the time to help others in need from a dollar to charity events. I am a person who don't have a lot to give financially but I am always willing to help those who have it harder then me.
I spend a lot of time getting people to know about A great on line radio station, packed with great rock n roll, from early 50's and 60's all the way to classic metal. We have radio legend MG Kelly on in the mornings and great shows all day everyday.
