Singer J. Holiday Wins the Ladies Over with a Performance at LAX Nightclub

Singer J. Holiday Wins the Ladies Over with a Performance at LAX Nightclub

Last night solo artist, J. Holiday was the main attraction in Las Vegas as he performed at LAX Nightclub at Luxor. Earlier that evening the singer was spotted dining at Social House inside Crystals at CityCenter for the launch of Kudasai. The artist was joined by his friends dining on delicious menu items including Mini Kobe Burgers, Spicy Ponzu and a Chef’s selection of dessert. Following the tasty meal the entourage headed to the nightclub making an entrance just before 1 a.m.

Once inside, the crowd was treated to an exclusive performance by the Billboard Hot 100 artist singing some of his hit singles including “It’s Yours,” and “Suffocate.” Before Holiday closed with a club favorite, “Bed,” he went into the crowd, doing what he does best, singing to and flirting with the ladies winning them over with his smooth style. Following his performance he addressed the clubgoers saying, “Everybody get drunk, because we are ready to party.” The down-to-earth singer took some time to visit a few of the VIP tables nearby taking photos with his fans before returning to his table and partied early into Thursday morning.

The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 70 million albums worldwide and have been awarded an astonishing 14 platinum and gold albums. Their incredible roster of hits includes “Nights In White Satin,” “Tuesday Afternoon,” “Ride My See Saw,” “The Story In Your Eyes,” “Isn’t Life Strange,” “Question,” “I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band),” “Your Wildest Dreams,” and “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,” to name a few.

Tim McGraw, named country music’s No. 1 touring act of 2010 by Billboard, makes a special stop at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Tuesday, June 7.

Tim McGraw has sold more than 40 million units and dominated the charts with 32 No. 1 singles, including his latest, “Felt Good On My Lips,” a bonus track from Number One Hits. With 7.8 million radio spins, he was the most-played artist of the past decade.

His “Southern Voice” tour was the No. 1 country music tour of 2010.

Deftones Saturday, June 11 at 8 p.m.
(Special guests The Dillinger Escape Plan and Le Butcherettes)
Tickets start at $30.50

After a sold out show with Alice in Chains in fall 2010, Deftones return to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, June 11 with special guests The Dillinger Escape Plan and Le Butcherettes.

Deftones, one of the most enduring and influential forces in modern rock, released their latest album Diamond Eyes in May 2010. The sixth full-length studio effort by the Grammy-winning, platinum-certified group was produced and mixed by Nick Raskulinecz (Alice in Chains, Coheed & Cambria, Foo Fighters). The band recorded the album after their best friend and bassist Chi Cheng sustained a debilitating brain injury from a car accident in November 2008. MySpace.com recently premiered a new video for lead single “Diamond Eyes,” which was shot in Los Angeles and directed by Roboshobo (Metallica, Mastodon, B-52’s).

As a band out of high school, Deftones mixed trip hop with thrash, melodic vocals with crushing reverb and pretty with ugly. As chart-toppers and headliners, they have crossed over genres and defied categorization. Above all, Deftones have stuck together throughout their often-turbulent tenure and now deliver one of the most compelling records of their career.

Critics, marketers and radio alike have struggled with where to place or how to define Deftones. The band has played with punk rockers L7, toured with Metallica and appealed to some of the same fan base as Morrissey and generally defied simple, and ultimately pointless genre classification.
