ROCK N THE TREND IS A HIT AT THE VEGAS’ BEST PARTY ROCK OF AGES CELEBRATES OPENING NIGHT AT THE VENETIAN LAS VEGAS SATURDAY, JANUARY 5
 
Last night (January 5, 2013) the high-octane musical ROCK OF AGES opened at The Venetian Las Vegas to an enthusiastic, full house at the Rock of Ages Theatre. The production is a hilarious, feel-good love story that celebrates the great rock songs of the ‘80s including “Here I Go Again,” “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “We Built This City,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” and more.
 
The high-energy performance had the crowd rockin’ out all night long with the audience waving hundreds of LED lighters in the air during the heartfelt ballads and singing and dancing on their feet during the finale. Director Kristin Hanggi and Choreographer Kelly Devine were also in the theater supporting the cast and at curtain call they joined the cast on stage to celebrate opening night. The talented cast includes Kyle Lowder as Stacee Jaxx, Carrie St. Louis as Sherrie, Justin Mortelliti as Drew, Mark Shunock as Lonny, Troy Burgess as Dennis, and Robert Torti as Hertz.
 
Notable names in attendance at opening night included Holly Madison, former star of E!’s “Holly’s World”, Pasquale Rotella, CEO of Insomniac Events; Jai Rodriguez of ABC’s “Malibu Country”; Jaymes and James of Team Chippendales on CBS’ “Amazing Race”; Arianne Zucker of NBC’s “Days of our Lives”; Kate Mansi of NBC’s “Days of our Lives”; Claire Sinclair, 2011 Playboy Playmate of the Year; Jabbawockeez, the world famous dance crew; Angel Porrino, star of ABSINTHE and former star of E!’s “Holly’s World”; Human Nature, The Venetian Las Vegas headliners; and Chef Carla Pellegrino, Owner of Bratalian and Meatball Spot.
 
While Rock N The Trend was not mentioned in this review of the Rock of Ages Release Party. The company’s collection of fashionable guitar pick jewelry was as big a hit with the media and VIP guests as the show. Each guest was given a rock n roll themed piece of jewelry. The women received guitar pick bracelets adorned with Swarovski Crystals and the men received guitar pick cuff links.
 
The Venetian Hotel and Rock N The Trend have collaborated on a couple of projects since the Hotels has begun its Rock N Roll revival. The Hotel is currently carrying guitar pick jewelry for men and women in two of their retail spaces.
