Ex L.A. Guns Guitarist Stacey Blades Launches Hairband Tribute Project LET IT RAWK
The Vegas strip had nothing on the Sunset Strip when it came to rock ‘n’ roll, and a new multi-media show is bringing that experience to the stage in a special sneak preview. LET IT RAWK will debut in the Chrome Showroom at Santa Fe Station and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, January 18 at 9 p.m. PST.
LET IT RAWK is a loud, colorful, energetic and interactive experience of the hair metal era on L.A.’s Sunset Strip. The showroom and stage will be infused with the sights and energy of a legendary rock club. Performed by guys who were there, shaping the scene, the show’s playlist includes the greatest hits from the ’80s and early ’90s. From WARRANT to MÖTLEY CRÜE, the best anthems will be performed in all the glory of the day. And hits from the LET IT RAWK bands’ careers are highlights.
The LET IT RAWK band is the real deal. It’s fronted by BLACK ‘N BLUE and ex-WARRANT vocalist Jaime St. James. Guitarist Oz Fox is in the platinum-selling Christian glam rock band STRYPER. DOKKEN‘s Sean McNabb has played bass for other Kings of The Sunset Strip, including GREAT WHITE and QUIET RIOT. Drummer Brent Fitz from SLASH AND THE CONSPIRATORS will be slamming the skins. Brent has also played for Vince Neil and Alice Cooper. The band will also feature floating members, such as Eddie Ojeda from TWISTED SISTER and BULLETBOYS‘ original drummer Jimmy D’Anda. The anchor of the band is LET IT RAWK‘s creator and producer Stacey Blades.
Stacey‘s ten years with L.A. GUNS cemented him as a must-watch guitar player, and his final record with the band, “Hollywood Forever”, earned him critical acclaim for his exceptional fretwork. He left the band last year to pursue his other projects, including LET IT RAWK.
“I have been diligently working on this project since last March, and am super stoked to be sharing the stage with such awesome guys and talented musicians,” said Blades. “The show will be playing a few times a month here in Vegas and then be doing casino shows nationally. See you out there!”
LET IT RAWK debuts in the Chrome Showroom at Santa Fe Station and Casino, 4949 North Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, on Saturday, January 18 at 9 p.m. PST. General admission tickets are $21. VIP meet-and-greet upgrades will be available soon. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com.
