This coming Saturday, Dec. 11, 2010, 8 pm to midnight, the fabulous 3 story Flagship Hard Rock Cafe on the Las Vegas Strip will be rocking to Domenick Allen's 'Vinyl Rock Show'. Domenick's personal invitation is in the above video. The show is by this former member of Foreigner and his 10 piece band, plus special celebrity guests dropping by, benefits the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots. Donation is $20 or a new unwrapped toy, all of which will be used here in the Las Vegas Valley. Tickets are available online, and at the door.
You may also know of the multi talented and multi instrumental Domenick outside of the rock world. His long Las Vegas history includes performing with some of the music legends of of all time. He was a featured performer with Liberace at the Las Vegas Hilton, performed with Buddy Rich and the great headliners of the Vegas Strip. Check out the video trailer for his show, "It's All About the Music", that will be returning to the Suncoast Jan 29 & 30, 2011. I think you'll be amazed by the depth of his musical talent.
Of course you may also know of Domenick from both screen and stage from all over the world. He portrayed Simon Prescott on 'Days of Our Lives', starred in Disney films, was on Star Search, and appeared on stage from Carnegie Hall, to Broadway, to London's famed West End. This is just the tip of the iceberg for Domenick, as he's been performing since age 3.
Domenick is also a Las Vegas 'local', and pictured above he dropped in to enjoy a another local, Bobby Brooks Hamilton and his show at the intimate Chianti Cafe in Summerlin. Domenick and his wife, Leigh Zimmerman, also a star of stage and screen, live here with their young daughter.
Another musician involved in this Toys for Tots is drummer LJ Harness, who has played with many of the greats of the rock world, and has performed in the Tangerine Bowl. LJ relocated to Las Vegas from Florida, and has become part of the local music scene.
You'll find LJ playing around town and at this Toys for Tots concert, but as Marketing Manager for Cadillac of Las Vegas, his company is sponsoring this event as well as others in the community. I met LJ while shopping for a new Cadillac for my dad, and he was great to work with and quickly became a friend. He tells me there's an Escalade in the showroom that's filling up with toys, and he received approval for it and Marine vehicles to be parked on the Strip in front of the Hard Rock Cafe Saturday night.
This a great event for a worthy cause, and it shows once again the unique Las Vegas community. Even with it's relatively small size, it has international city status and amenities often only offered in packed metropolitan areas. It's been a draw to not only the artists and entertainers that work here, but has become a home to many more, and it's not unusual to catch these performers not only on the Strip, but just about anywhere in the valley. Our Las Vegas celebrities are 'neighbors', and are often involved in the community. It's one of the many interesting things that makes Las Vegas a great place to call home.
Oh, and while I'd suggest anyone in Las Vegas dropping in Saturday night and helping the USMC Toys for Tots, there's a way for those that won't be here to still catch the show. It will be webcast live on TourTV.
