WHO IS KLEO?
KLEO is MANY THANGS...
She’s a native Las Vegan, with a bit of ‘Southern Swag’. Her introduction to the world of entertainment began when she was just a small tot, singing and dancing for stadium filled arenas. While studying classical piano and clarinet, her side activities were performing with the neighborhood drill team, the high school band and modeling.
In her spare time KLEO took on Opera lessons, which down the line contributed to her record deal as a Solo Artist. KLEO has appear in magazines across the country and many of her friends could always look up and find her on some television show, video or commercial.
KLEO also holds the prestigious title of Cleopatra, the spokes model for the Caesars Palace Resort & Casino. KLEO traveled the world representing the Hotel. She once delivered a very special birthday cake all the way to Taiwan, China. She’d present various proclamations while making her grand entrance on the trunk of an elephant. She’s traveled abroad accompanying various Celebrities while introducing and promoting the Hotel, its events and products. As if that wasn’t exciting enough, KLEOs love for dance led her to the famous, legendary Don Arden’s Jubilee Show where she fulfilled her dream of becoming a beautiful Las Vegas Showgirl! As a triple threat, KLEO attained one of her most glorious titles, Miss Nevada USA! Along with the reigning Miss USA, KLEO was chosen as one of five talented Beauty Queens to join Bob Hope on the world famous USO Tour! Off she goes again! “When I think about my life, it’s really hard to believe I did all those things and I don’t take any of it for granted - NOT FOR ONE MINUTE!”
KLEO eventually relocated to Los Angeles expanding her modeling, television and recording careers. A hit song from world famous Terry Louis & Jimmy Jam along with other hit makers; Robert Palmer and DJ Ralphi Rizario, started KLEO's Recording Career with a blast! Although missing home, she accomplished her goals with 2 singles rising up the Billboard Charts, both landing in the top 7, in the country! She toured across country, visiting radio stations, performing and promoting her new album. After a 10 year stretch in Los Angeles, KLEO was established and decided to come back home! Caesars Palace embraced her with open arms, as she picked right back up with her spokes model career until the world famous Hugh Heffner’s finest Playboy Club arrived to Las Vegas! Landing at the PALMS Resort & Casino, becoming a Playboy Bunny was never on KLEO's bucket list but she couldn’t resist the ‘once in a life time’, truly unique opportunity. KLEO auditioned and was hired as Las Vegas’ Lead Playboy Bunny and that kept her busy for quite some time!
"Vegas is such a unique beast and where else in the world could I have ever had such amazing jobs, so the question in my mind was, what’s next? And it had to be something unique; when my ‘now’ Band Director said, 'You need to have your own band' and I knew that was it! My next big adventure!" THE DUSTYY LANE BAND was birthed! "Ultimately, MUSIC is my passion! And for me, music includes dance. So full speed ahead with live performing, writing songs, recording and engineering them; I LOVE IT ALL! I love the ‘in studio’ – behind the scenes work as much as I love the actual performing. Carl Roland is the Band Director and he is a fierce talent alone! He has written and produced so many great, world renowned songs for so many great Artists and has defiantly brought out the best in me. With our collaboration, I am blessed to be able to do it all and that’s exactly what I’m doing! Look out VEGAS! HERE COMES DUSTYY LANE!"
