The One Where We Were Reminded Of Some Vegas Faves

November 25, 2014 at 7:17 PM | by | Comments (0)

Over the weekend, headliner Jeff Civillico from the Imperial Linq Quad Palace (as he likes to put it) hosted a charity fundraiser for his Win-Win Entertainment organization. The group hooks up entertainers with good causes such as performing shows in childrenís hospitals.

Win-Winís Headliner Bash featured an array of Vegas stars and reminded us of just why we loved some of them. One of the standout performances was from Human Nature (pictured above), the Aussie Motown group who perform at Venetian. When it comes to amazing vocals, these guys are some of the best in Vegas. Their pitch-perfect harmonies and a capella skills are truly impressive. After performing a Motown standard, the group moved to Christmas music from their ďChristmas AlbumĒ and reminded guests of their upcoming holiday themed shows. If you hadn't heard, their Christmas, Motown and More show runs December 12-24.

Electric Daisy Carnival: 2015 Dates, Pricing And Early Look At Room Rates

November 18, 2014 at 9:01 PM | by | Comments (2)

Some will circle them. Others will cross them out. The 2015 dates for Electric Daisy Carnival have been announced with the oontz fest taking over the Las Vegas Motor Speedway once again June 19-21.

Next year will mark the fifth anniversary (in Vegas) for the music festival which brings hundreds of thousands together in the name of EDM. Tickets will go on sale December 1 at noon PT. Three-day general admission will be priced at $329 while VIP passes will begin at $699. As in prior years, no single day tickets will be sold, but you will be able to make the cost a bit easier to handle thanks to a layaway option. And, you might want to seriously consider it as pricing is significantly higher than last year which saw general admission at $249 and VIP access at $499.

If you missed The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl before, you have no excuse this time. Youíve been warned. They put on a heck of a show and though itís hard to explain if you havenít experienced it, they just feel like Brooklyn Bowl. They feel like they should be on that stage. Jimmy Fallon should move his show to Vegas so they can be our house band at the same time.

Youíll have your shot to see what we mean over New Yearís Eve at The Roots Legendary New Yearís Eve Ball. Doors open and 8 p.m. and the band takes the stage at 9 p.m. If past shows are any indication, they should be good for a decently long performance.

What's Up With The DJs, Yo?

November 14, 2014 at 1:19 PM | by | Comments (29)

Just as common a sight on the Vegas Strip as buskers and those $1 water guys are DJs. Once a faceless, nameless profession, it now comes with so much cache DJs capture top billing on marquees and some of the city's top salaries, too.

Outside of the Strip's mega clubs, DJs also remain standard entertainment fare at lounges and bars. You're much more likely to jam to a DJ than a live band. But, that's not to say everyone likes throwing their hands up. Just ask VegasChatter reader Donna M.:

Forgotten Vegas: Why Doesnít Anyone Remember MGM Grandís EFX?

Where: 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
November 13, 2014 at 2:26 PM | by | Comments (17)

Remember EFX? Back in MGMís Wizard of Oz era, EFX was the spectacle of The Strip. Technical marvels KA and "O" didnít exist and Cirque du Soleilís first Vegas show, Mystere, was still brand new. MGM, not even two years old at the time, invested heavily in a special-effects driven show so ambitious that it dwarfed not only anything else in Vegas, but any other show in the world. Despite an eight-year run in a massive 1,800-seat theater, EFX seems to have been largely forgotten among the relics of Lost Vegas.

On the heels of the much raved about and successful Pawn Stars-inspired production, Pawn Shop Live, it's no surprise to hear another popular reality TV show is (possibly) making its way to the Las Vegas stage. (Yes, today is opposite day. Or, sarcasm day. They're interchangeable, regardless.)

The New York Times is reporting that the Duck Dynasty family is planning a musical for Vegas about, yep, Duck Dynasty.

Raiding The Rock Vault Makes The Move To Tropicana

Where: 3801 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109

Weíre happy to report that Raiding the Rock Vault hasnít lost its luster after a trip to The Strip, moving from Westgate (formerly LVH) to Tropicana. What could easily be seen as a rocker retirement home is, instead, a fun and upbeat trip through the hits of the past few decades.

If you didnít catch it in its last incarnation, Raiding the Rock Vault is a show featuring rock legends performing the hits of the Ď60s, Ď70s and Ď80s. Buffered by a loose framework about rock fans and roadies, the show lets different rockers take the lead in the songs best suited to their voices.
