Hard Rock Hotel & Casino continued the New Years celebration in style with several notorious DJs and The Black Keys Saturday, Dec. 29 and Sunday, Dec. 30.


The party started at the newly opened Body English on Saturday, Dec. 29. Richard Beynon played first to a packed house. Then, M83 took the stage. The crowd went wild as the DJ spun today’s favorite hits including “Dancing On My Own” by Robyn. Black Boots ended the night at the turn tables as the crowd danced the night away.


The next day, DJ Pauly D hit the red carpet at Vanity. The Jersey Shore star politely posed in pictures with fans. Later, he entered the DJ booth to a screaming crowd and spun music on his iconic bedazzled Italian flag Macbook as the crowd sang along. Drop the Lime was also spinning the night away at Body English. The DJ did a couple throwback songs in the middle of his set and played some rockabilly songs. DJ Switch hit the red carpet at 1:20 a.m. and also stopped by the luxurious club.


The big event of the night was Grammy award winning The Black Keys at The Joint. The group rang in the New Year with a sold-out crowd. The duo played its popular hits including “Howling For You,” “Next Girl,” “Lonely Boy” and more. After the concert, the crowd yelled for an encore. The Black Keys came back to the stage and played “Everlasting Light” as two disco balls danced above the audience. The Black Keys pay at The Joint again Monday, Dec. 31.


Local Las Vegas band Moksha also added to the entertainment for the evening. The band was joined by Spafford and played an explosive show of its funk rock including fan favorites “The Seed,” “Real Show,” and “Here To Go.”
