The Bud E. Luv Orchestra or The Bud E. Luv Trio...You just can�t escape the country�s number one rated lounge master. Nobody has a history like Bud E.! Praises from The New York Times, The New Yorker, San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, and SPIN Magazine and headlining performances at The Bay Area Music Awards, The Black & White Ball, every Las Vegas showroom, and clubs nation-wide make Bud E Luv the quintessential lounge lizard.

As a Three-piece lounge show with his brothers or the full-blown Bud E. Luv Orchestra with an excellent section of brass, dynamic percussion and the world�s number one lounge lizard Bud E. Luv. The sequins and diamond rings make the man...but don�t take it from us, here�s what Bud E. Luv says: "Is this gorgeous or what? Frank gave me this rock, Wayne gave me the 18 karat gold band, and Sammy had the whole thing put together for me by his jeweler. Sinatra, Newton, Davis Jr...of course that�s who I�m talking about"...and he can drop names with the best of them because they�ve been hanging around Bud E. Luv for eons. "Know Them? Of course I know them...I wrote most of their big hits" says Luv.

Born in Chicago in 1955, Luv was named after his father, Bud "The Brute" Euripides Luvalopolis, a Greek immigrant and middle-weight boxer who never got a chance to fight for the title.

In search of fortune and fame, Luv�s father moved to Las Vegas in 1961 with his son Bud Junior. "Actually, I was taken from my Mother. I�ll never forget the tears in her eyes as we drove away in the car that my Father had just stolen. She was nuts about me." In Las Vegas, the senior Luvalopolis worked as a dish washer at the Riviera, gambling by day, washing dishes by night. Here, at the age of six, baby Luvalopolis would get his big break.

"One night while my Dad was doing the dishes, I was doing a little show for some of the kitchen staff" Luv says. "I had just finished my closing number up on the steam table, and this cat steps up to me and introduces himself. It was Milton Berle. I nearly fell in the deep fryer."

Realizing that Bud Euripedes Luvalopolis Jr. was a great singer and great entertainer, "Uncle Miltie" suggested that Bud E. Luv would be a better stage name than Bud Euripedes Luvalopolis Jr., so, at the age of six, Luvalopolis became Luv, and the rest is history. For the next 20 years, the name Bud E. Luv became synonymous with "talent" and his career exploded.

Working internationally for all different clubs and shows, Bud E. Luv recalls his performance at Woodstock. He was to be know as the only entertainer at Woodstock to headline the "Bummer Tent." "We were a little disappointed that they wouldn�t let us on the main stage" Luv admits, "but those kids in that tent were something. They were already freaking out when we were there, but when we started to perform, they really freaked out!" Moving into the seventies, Bud E.�s career continued in strength, unobscured by marriage, divorce and scandals, "Of course, the rumors were false."

The writer of such legendary songs as "Candyman," "Love Boat" (originally called The Luv Boat), "Danke Schoen," "Whole Lot Of Love," "What�s New Pussycat" and even "Disco Inferno," Bud E. Luv is the ultimate showman, packing houses from coast to coast from SF to NY, and certainly a favorite Lounge King in the town that was custom built by Steve Wynn for Bud E. Luv, LAS VEGAS.
