FLO RIDA In The House!

The Global Brand of Rockefeller VODKA, FLO RIDA Meets His Fans

Hip Hop Star FLO RIDA and Robby LeBlanc from LasVegasNewsBlog.comVintage Rockefeller Wine & Spirits Group Hosted a Unique Meet and Greet With Hip-Hop Superstar FLO RIDA.

The meet and greet, Wednesday April 20, 2016 was at this year’s Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) 2016 convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.  FLO RIDA is Global Brand Ambassador of Empire Rockefeller Vodka.

A few weeks ago I got a call from a friend , David Gersh and he asked if I was available to shoot some photos for an event he was producing with FLO RIDA. To be honest, I didn’t know who FLO was, because I don’t listen to much Hip-Hop and Rap, I’m more of a Classical, Jazz and Pop guy. Then his it hit me, his name, FLO RIDA = Florida! Boom!

As I researched FLO, the first song I came upon was “I Don’t Like It, I LOVE It” which included Robin Thicke and Earth Wind and Fire’s Verdine White. As I listened, I didn’t like it, I LOVE IT!

Below is a video from the photos and video clips I took from the days activities. The day started at Caesars Palace and ended upon a party at Señor Frogs Las Vegas, inside Treasure Island.

Motorhead Plays House of Blues!

Motorhead at House of Blues“We are Motörhead,” said frontman Lemmy Kilmister “and we play ROCK and ROLL”!

by Christian Wloszczyna

Motorhead, the hard rock band took the stage last Friday night at the House of Blues in Las Vegas for the second date of their 40th anniversary tour.

No other words were needed as Motörhead wasted no time in diving right into ‘Damage Case’ and ‘Stay Clean’ with the ferocity and volume that has become their trademark almost as much as Lemmy’s distinctive gravelly voice.

The band stuck to early classics for most of the setlist, with just one of the 14 tracks they played having been recorded in the last decade, playing “Lost Woman Blues” off of 2013’s Aftershock.
