YESCO TURNS 100, REPRESENTS WORLD’S LARGEST MAKER OF
ICONIC SIGNS

 YESCO, a renowned company known for creating internationally recognizable signs, celebrates 100 years in business in 2020. Today, YESCO represents one of North America’s largest and most-recognized sign companies thanks to its historic roster of iconic signs.

The family-owned and operated company began in 1920 in Ogden, Utah when founder Thomas Young borrowed $300 from his father to start the business. It began specializing in wall-painted advertisements, gold-leaf window lettering and coffin plates.

Today, headquartered in Salt Lake City and helmed by second-, third- and fourth-generation members of the Young family, YESCO designs and creates the world’s most spectacular signs, incorporating dazzling color, LED displays, motion and digital animation and video.

In 1945, the company opened a branch in Las Vegas, which today represents its largest.

Recognizable examples of YESCO’s work illuminate the United States and Canada. Notable projects include:

UNLV WOMEN’S BASKETBALL SET FOR WEDNESDAY ROAD CONTEST AT COLORADO STATE

UNLV WOMEN’S BASKETBALL SET FOR WEDNESDAY ROAD CONTEST AT COLORADO STATE

 

Lady Rebels looking for first win in Fort Collins since 2008

@UNLVLadyRebels on Twitter |  UNLV game notes (PDF)  |  Watch LIVE  |  Listen LIVE  |  LIVE Stats

 

UNLV hopes to bounce back on Wednesday night and snap a three-game losing streak, as the Lady Rebels will face Colorado State in Fort Collins in a 6 pm tip. The Lady Rebels are also looking for a rare win on the road against the Rams, as they haven’t won on CSU’s home court since the 2007-08 season, a span of nine games.

 

There will be a live video stream available on the Mountain West Network, with the link also available on UNLVRebels.com. Wyatt Tomchek (play-by-play) will and Mark Wasik (color analyst) will handle the radio broadcast which can be accessed on UNLVRebels.com.

 

UNLV Game Notes

♦  Moby Arena is also the only road facility that UNLV head coach Kathy Olivier has never won in while leading the Lady Rebels, though the last two games came right down to the end, a pair of three-point losses in the 2016-17 and 2018-19 seasons (UNLV did not play CSU in a road game in 2017-18).
♦  UNLV is currently tied fourth in the Mountain West, along with Wyoming, and both teams hold a game and a half lead over San Diego State with the top-five teams earning first round byes in next month’s Mountain West Tournament. With four games left in the regular season, UNLV would clinch an opening round bye with two more wins.
♦  UNLV is winning off defense, as the Lady Rebels are currently second in the MW in scoring defense, field goal percentage defense as well as No. 5 in the nation in three-point field goal defense at 23.3%. UNLV is also leading the league in rebound margin for the fifth straight season.

♦  UNLV senior forward Rodjanae Wade is currently third in the nation in both double-doubles (16) and offensive rebounds per game (4.9 rpg).
♦  The 2019-20 UNLV Lady Rebel squad are one of the youngest and least experienced teams in the Mountain West this season after graduating four senior starters. UNLV has 10 underclassmen on this year’s squad, with seven freshmen and three sophomores, while the four-member senior class had a total of two career starts (as a Lady Rebel) entering the season.

Country music icon Trace Adkins to bring The Way I Wanna Go Tour to Sunset Amphitheater

Friday, July 17, 2020 at 8 p.m.

Tickets on sale – Friday, Feb. 21, 2020 at 10 a.m.

 Multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-nominated country music icon Trace Adkins is bringing his The Way I Wanna Go Tour to Las Vegas for a special performance at the Sunset Amphitheater at Sunset Station on Friday, July 17, 2020 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $25 plus applicable fees and go on sale Friday, Feb. 21, 2020 at 10 a.m.

A Nashville icon for more than two decades, Trace Adkins has made his mark on the country-music industry. 11 million albums sold. Time-honored hit singles. Momentous, fiery and always memorable live performances. GRAMMY nominations. CMT and ACM awards. Nearly 200 million plays on YouTube. Hell, even a slew of movie and TV roles have come the Grand Ole Opry member’s way. But ask Adkins what’s left to prove in his career and the small-town Louisiana native says it’s simple: the itch remains. To create. To collaborate. To continually feel the excitement that comes after whipping up a new song out of thin air and laying it down to tape. It’s what, after all these years, he says he still craves. “It’s an adrenaline rush and I love it,” says Adkins, who is back in the studio working on a new project. “There’s nothing else like that,” the Louisiana naive offers. “That is still my favorite thing to do in this business. Go into the studio with just some lyrics and a melody and then let the finest musicians in the world help take it and turn it into something magical. It liberates me. I just dig it!”

Working with some of Nashville’s most respected songwriters, Adkins continues to find ways to connect with his fans through music while recording what he describes as autobiographical songs throughout his career.

Tickets for the Trace Adkins’ The Way I Wanna Go Tour are $25, $30, $35 and $45 plus applicable fees. All tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 21, 2020 at 10 a.m. Guests under 18 years must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older.

About HELLYEAH
HELLYEAH is the brain-child of Mudvayne front man, Chad Gray, and Nothingface founder, Tom Maxwell. It became a reality in 2006 when the pair convinced the late Vinnie Paul, legendary drummer of Pantera and Damageplan, to pick up his sticks again after the tragic loss of his brother. Hard rock and metal fans all over the globe celebrated Vinnie’s return and HELLYEAH was immediately dubbed a heavy metal super-group by press and public alike.

The band’s self-titled, debut hit the streets in 2007, entering Billboard’s Top 200 album chart at No. 9. 2010’s Stampede hit No. 8 on the same prestigious chart, and 2012’s Band of Brothers proved that HELLYEAH was in it for the long haul. For the band’s ever-growing legion of fans, 2014’s, Blood for Blood, was the bar-setting release they’d been anticipating since day one. This critically acclaimed album deservedly debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Album chart. It also saw the group’s membership stabilize in rock-solid fashion with the introduction of Christian Brady on lead guitar and Kyle Sanders on bass.

As a result of the burgeoning success of Blood for Blood, HELLYEAH toured the globe for 18 months. Then, after a mere two-week break, the boys started working on their fifth album. The resulting release, 2016’s metal-masterpiece, UNDEN!ABLE, continued the brutal bombast of its predecessor. In late 2017, after another successful bout of touring, HELLYEAH started work on album six with their producer from Blood for Blood, Kevin Churko. All was going well until Friday, June 22, 2018, when the news of Vinnie Paul’s sudden passing stunned the hard rock world into silence.

Despite their unimaginable feelings of both loss and pain, the four remaining HELLYEAH members regrouped to do what they knew Vinnie would want them to do: Finish what he’d started. Driven by their love, loyalty, reverence and respect for their fallen brother, they did exactly that. The result is Welcome Home – an album that does both Vinnie’s memory and groundbreaking legacy proud.

🎤 Joan Jett & the Blackhearts to Headline a Two-Night Engagement at The Pearl June 5-6

JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHEARTS
TWO-NIGHT ENGAGEMENT

The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort

Friday, June 5 & Saturday, June 6 at 9 p.m.

Tickets on sale – Friday, Feb. 21 at 10 a.m.

Hard-rocking Joan Jett & the Blackhearts bring a special two-night engagement to the intimate Pearl Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6 at 9 p.m. Tickets start at $45, plus applicable fees.

Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.” Her independent record label, Blackheart Records, was founded in 1980 after she was rejected by no less than 23 labels. Blackheart is one of the longest running indie labels and continues to give voice to new bands. Jett has acted in movies and television, including 1987’s Light Of Day, and in a Tony-nominated Broadway musical, The Rocky Horror Show. She has appeared on such acclaimed television shows as Oprah (the last season) and Law and Order.

As a producer, she has overseen albums by Bikini Kill, Circus Lupus, as well as the Germs’ LA punk masterpiece, GI.

Her music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. A version of “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was reworked for NBC’s Sunday Night Football theme song, “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” and was performed for nine seasons by the likes of Pink, Faith Hill and Carrie Underwood. Her music is heard in countless films and TV shows including Easy – A, Kick Ass, The Runaways, Shrek, Baby Mama, and many more.

Since co-founding the Runaways, the pioneering all-girl punk quintet, at age 15, Jett’s determination and drive have kept her in the public eye. Jett was able to see her story told in The Runaways, the film based on (lead singer of The Runaways) Cherie Currie’s book Neon Angel starring Kristen Stewart as Jett, and her fellow A-lister Dakota Fanning as Currie. Jett was close to the project: She served as an executive producer. Jett and the Blackhearts released their latest record, Unvarnished, in 2013 and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans.

Joan Jett has spent her lifetime breaking barriers and challenging expectations – this is, after all, a woman who is both a spokesperson for PETA and a devoted supporter of the US Military. She’s fought hard for all of her historic accomplishments, yet she remains humble and appreciative. “I’ve had a blessed career,” she says. “I consider myself so lucky to have been able to do things my own way.”

Tickets for Joan Jett & the Blackhearts are $45, $59.95, $79.95, $139.95 and $299.95 (front row), plus applicable fees and go on sale Friday, Feb. 21 at 10 a.m. Doors open at 8 p.m. Guests under 21 must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets can be purchased at the Pearl Theater box office, any Station Casinos Rewards Center or online at Ticketmaster.com.

About Don McLean:
A New York native, Don McLean is one of the most revered and respected songwriters in American history. After paying his dues in the New York club scene in the late ‘60s, he went on to score mega-hits like “American Pie,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” “Castles in the Air” and many more. In 2004, McLean was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame by country superstar Garth Brooks. In 2000, “American Pie” was named one of the Top 5 Songs of the 20th Century by the RIAA and in 2002 was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame. In 2015, one of McLean’s four handwritten manuscripts of the lyrics to “American Pie” was auctioned by Christies, selling for just over $1.2 Million. 2017 brought a huge honor when his iconic song was inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, joining less than 500 works including “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, McLean’s prowess for writing timeless songs was again captured on his 2018 album, Botanical Gardens, as he artfully weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot stomping rock for an eclectic, yet American sound that he is known for.

About The Song – Recorded Live @ TGL Farms:
Conceived, produced, shot and edited in Nashville, Tennessee, the wildly entertaining 30-minute show includes intimate performances by superstars such as CeeLo Green singing “Crazy,” Rick Springfield singing “Jessie’s Girl,” All-4-One singing “I Swear,” Big & Rich singing “Save A Horse,”, Don McLean singing “American Pie,” and more. In-depth interviews with the artists and songwriters reveal never-before-heard details behind those songs, the inspiration and how they became woven into the fabric of popular culture.

Executive produced by Marc Oswald, Cary Glotzer and award-winning director Trey Fanjoy, the series was filmed at picturesque TGL Farms. The setting provided a relaxed atmosphere for hosts Krista and Damien to dig deep into the lives and careers of the artists and songwriters. The TGL Farms stable was transformed into a studio soundstage, where the artists performed intimate versions of their hit songs and often introduced new music.

Following a recent break-up from his longtime boyfriend, YouTube sensation and make up maven, Jeffree Star, traded love for late-night partying with a weekend-long celebration at Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell Hotel in Las Vegas.

 

Arriving in style via private jet, Star began the party on Valentine’s Day with a large group of friends at the nightlife hotspot. While taking in a live performance from Ty Dolla $ign, the group indulged in magnum-sized bottles of Don Julio 1942 and Ace of Spades rosé.

 

Star and his entourage enjoyed the experience so much that they returned for round two on Saturday night.
