Hey DJ Won’t You Play That Song And Keep Me Dancin’…

15 Jan

hakkasan-LogoLately, there has been so much nightclub buzz around Hakkasan, the $100 million dollar and then some gigantic dayclub/nightclub/restaurant taking residence on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue in the former Rain Nightclub space at MGM Grand, and it’s exclusive DJ contracts as reported by the Las Vegas Sun with Deadmau5, Avicii, Tiesto, David Guetta, Steve Aoki and Calvin Harris, to name a few, you would think it will be the only place to get your groove on. But that is not the case. There are still plenty of DJs and nightclubs to go around.

Here are two new DJ announcements:

Dirty-SouthWynn Las Vegas just announced it has “42 Electronic Dance Music DJ Residencies” on its dayclub and nightclubs roster for 2013 including will.i.am, John Dahlbäck, Max Vangeli, Bassnectar, and Dirty South. You can see the entire list at WynnSocial.com.

PaulyDMTV Jersey Shore alum and current star of his own show The Pauly D Project, Paul DelVecchio, was added to The Light Group DJ roster as a resident with his own night called TURN UP at HAZE Nightclub at ARIA Resort & Casino debuting Saturday, January 19.


And don’t forget, Vegas has so many nightclubs and lounges (not all are listed) with something going on every day of the week, and when spring rolls in so does daylife and that’s an entirely new list.

A Vegas New Year’s Eve 2013

27 Dec

Brielle fur hatIf I wasn’t ringing in 2013 my three-year-old great niece Brielle (I happily offered) I would be at one of these great parties. There is always so much to choose from on New Year’s Eve Weekend it’s hard to choose. I picked these three because I’ve never seen any of the hosts live.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

I Was Just Re-Tweeted by Musician Tim McMorris

10 Sep

Everyone knows the current Sam Adams “For the Love of Beer” commercial with the great song lyrics

“Make me laugh and show me how

Just how good this life can be

And in our moments filled with joy is where I live

Where I am free

Lay in our arms, I’ll hold you tight

Just like you like, continually

And I am overwhelmed by you.”


From the first time I heard the song and saw the commercial I knew I had to find the name of the artist and support his music because of how those lyrics made me feel. Once I found him on YouTube I had to follow his channel and tweet about it.

Musician Tim McMorrisSo I posted @timmcmorris youtube.com/user/timmcmorr… #joy #happiness #love” and to my delight, this morning he replied @AdrienneNHester Thanks for spreading the word Adrienne :)”

 The real thank you is to him for beautiful music. Take a listen to the entire song and the actual video and I know you will agree.

Thank you for reading.

Guns N’ Roses: Appetite for Democracy

13 Aug

I will never forget the first time I heard the name Guns N’ Roses. It was 1987, summer, and I was in LA hanging out with my childhood best friend Nicole at her sister Rene’s apartment on the Sunset Strip. It was definitely one of the cooler places to live in the 80s, CC DeVille of the band Poison lived in her building and the band was always there.

Downstairs hair bands hocked their tapes up and down the boulevard between gigs and I was lucky enough to buy Appetite for Destruction (one of the greatest albums of all time) for $5 from some guy selling them out of his backpack. Nicole and I had the tape on repeat and I couldn’t wait to get back to Vegas to turn my all my friends onto it. I was a fan and I saw them every chance I could when they played Vegas.  Then the bottom fell out and they broke up. I was devastated.

Starting on Halloween night, Guns N’ Roses will have the Appetite for Democracy residency for 12 days inside The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino sans the original members: Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler. The new band, which played two sold out show this past New Year’s, is now made up of Axl Rose, DJ Ashba, Dizzy Reed, Tommy Stinson, Richard Fortus, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Chris Pitman and Frank Ferrer

Like I said before, about Faith Hill & Tim McGraw – Soul2Soul, “this is sure to cause a frenzy to purchase tickets and count on this show selling out quickly.” Halloween is a big deal in Vegas and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate.

Dear Abbott Nutrition & RJ Reynolds,

2 Mar

Similac Infant Formula

On February 16, I received a package from UPS containing a Nourishing Newborns Feeding Kit with two samples of infant formula: Similac Sensitive for “Fussiness & Gas, Due to Lactose Sensitivity. Complete Nutrition for Sensitive Tummies” and Similac Advance “Complete Nutrition For Your Baby’s 1st Year. Closer Than Ever to Breast Milk.”

Newborns don't come with instructions

Who doesn’t love the surprise of a free gift, especially expensive baby formula? The sensitive retails for $22.75 at Walmart and $13.99 for the advance at Target. Well, I can tell you I didn’t care too much for this package for two reasons. One) I am not pregnant. Two) My relationship status on Facebook went from “in a relationship” to “it’s complicated” four days before the package arrived.

Self-pity aside, I have no idea how I ended up on your mailing list and kindly ask you to remove my contact information. I’m not sure how you develop your list, however I suggest a good scrub before the next mail campaign. And while you’re at it, tell RJ Reynolds to do the same thing. I don’t smoke and getting coupons for Camel cigarettes in the same mail delivery as baby formula is wrong on so many levels. As someone in marketing, I suggest coordinating your calendars for mailings.

Sincerely,

Adrienne
