KELLER AND HEADLINER EVERCLEAR FOR M.E.N.U.S. EVENT, FRIDAY,
OCT. 13, HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO

 The Epicurean Charitable Foundation (ECF) announces Chef Hubert Keller as its honoree and Everclear as the headliner for the upcoming Mentoring and Educating Nevada’s Upcoming Students (M.E.N.U.S.) event, its largest annual fundraiser, to be held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Paradise Pool on Friday, Oct. 13, from 8 p.m. – 11 p.m. Showcasing more than 50 of Las Vegas’ top restaurants, chefs, mixologists and beverage distributors, the event supports ECF’s mission of providing full college scholarships and mentorship opportunities to gifted, but underprivileged, Clark County high school seniors who are passionate about pursuing a career in the food, beverage and hospitality industry.

This year’s event will feature a dine-around, tempting silent auction and memorable after-party—all complemented by Cuban flavors, cigars, dancing and beverages. Guests are encouraged to don their finest Havana-chic attire.

More than any other area charity focused on student academic and career development, ECF provides valuable personal connections and one-on-one support to its scholarship recipients. They receive not only up to $48,000 toward tuition, books and other fees, but also participation in the Future Leaders of Hospitality Program. In this program, each student is paired with a board member, who serves as a mentor and provides real-life guidance, support and assistance with job and internship placement upon graduation. Past ECF scholars have gone on to careers such as director of hotel operations at Caesars Palace, director of financial planning and analysis for New York-New York Hotel and casino and hotel administrative manager at The Venetian.

“Once again, we look forward to giving the industry and the community an exciting reason to support these deserving students,” said Michael Kennedy, board chairman, ECF. “For one night each year, M.E.N.U.S. guests can enjoy not only the best of our city’s culinary scene, but also a chance to honor our most esteemed industry leaders—as well as rousing entertainment. We look forward to this year being our most memorable yet.”

Fremont Street Experience’s Rock of Vegas summer concert series continues as JBL Presents: Summerland Tour 2013 – Alternative Guitars Starring Everclear, Live, Filter and Sponge makes its way to the 3rd Street Stage for a free concert on Saturday, June 29 at 9 p.m. The legendary downtown Las Vegas entertainment venue will transform into summer’s alternative destination through Labor Day weekend with a free concert series that showcases a stellar lineup of bands that take music to the edge.

Everclear
Founded in Portland, Ore. in 1992, Everclear independently released their debut album World of Noise. The band’s relentless touring regimen and D.I.Y. promotional tactics helped set to set the stage for the platinum-level breakthrough of 1995’s Sparkle and Fade, which spawned the hits “Santa Monica” and “Heroin Girl.” The band’s ascendancy continued with 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow, which produced the radio hits “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” and “Father of Mine.” In 2012 Everclear released their newest album “Invisible Stars” featuring new songs that embody the same qualities of punch, sturdy songcraft and edgy introspection that have long endeared Everclear to its large and loyal worldwide fan base.

Live
Live burst onto the burgeoning alternative scene in 1991, but it was their sophomore album Throwing Copper that solidified their status as bonafide superstars. The album featured hit songs “Lightning Crashes,” “All Over You,” and “I Alone.” The album reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album “One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time”, while tastemakers from Spin to The New York Times lauded it with equal praise. Upon release, its 1997 follow-up Secret Samadhi immediately shot to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went six-times platinum. However, on The Distance to Here in 1999, Live turned into an international powerhouse and jumped from arenas into stadiums all over the globe driven by the smash “The Dolphin’s Cry”. V and Birds of Pray followed, continuing to expand their legacy and satiate the rabid and faithful fan base that they had amassed over nearly two decades. Live’s music remains a pillar of the nineties both musically and culturally. The band infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that stood out from the early nineties pack.

Filter
Shoving a fist in the face of tradition has been Filter’s modus operandi since the release of their self-produced debut album, Short Bus. The album’s rough-around-the-edges production brought the group’s first hit single “Hey Man, Nice Shot” which peaked at #10 on Billboards Modern Rock Tracks. Their second album, Title of Record, featured hit song “Take a Picture” which has been featured in numerous motion pictures including The Girl Next Door, Saving Grace, Little Nicky and Pay it Forward. Filter’s sixth album, The Sun Comes Out will be released on June 4, 2013.

Sponge
Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album Rotting Piñata. Emerging from Detroit with hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles)” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status. Sponge’s follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including “Wax Ecstatic” and “Have You Seen Mary?” The band’s music was also featured in popular movies The Craft, Chasing Amy, Mall Rats and Empire Records. Having shared stages the world over with Guns N’ Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Kiss, to name just a few, Sponge continues to be one of rock’s most sought after live acts. Front man Vinnie Dombroski captivates audiences with his powerful voice, heart-on-his-sleeve lyrics and high-octane stage presence. In May of 2013 Sponge will release a highly anticipated new album Stop the Bleeding.

Free Headliner Concerts
Throughout the summer, Fremont Street Experience will provide the ultimate nirvana for rock music fans with an exciting lineup of performances that include:Theory of a Deadman on Sunday, May 19; Fuel and Lit on May 25; Hinder on June 8; JBL presents: Summerland Tour 2013 – Everclear, Live, Filter and Sponge on June 29; Three Days Grace on Thursday, July 4; Sister Hazel and Tonic on July 20; Eve 6 on July 27; The Presidents of the United States of America on Aug. 3; Third Eye Blind on Aug. 17 and Puddle of Mudd on Aug. 31.

In addition, downtown hotel-casinos offer fabulous deals on room rates, gambling and food and drink specials.”

Theory of a Deadman
The platinum-selling Vancouver quartet, Theory of a Deadman, builds arena-ready hooks around hard rocking stories of good times, bad times and everything in between. “Lowlife,” is a raucous anthem celebrating simple pleasures. Meanwhile, “The Bitch Came Back” gives a hilarious send-off to a bad ex with roaring guitars and flourishes of horns. “Hurricane” stirs up a storm of emotions over an orchestral hum of guitars and massive chorus. Then there’s “Head Above Water,” which delivers an uplifting, contemplative message encased in mid-tempo rhythms.

The band solidified their place at the top of modern hard rock by exceeding Platinum sales with their breakthrough album Scars & Souvenirs and with #1 Mainstream Rock Radio hit “Bad Girlfriend.” At the same time, other singles, “So Happy” and “By The Way,” became crowd favorites on tours with notable bands from Mötley Crüe and Godsmack to Daughtry and label mates Stone Sour.

Fuel
Fuel burst onto the scene with their 1998 full-length debut album Sunburn, featuring the massive hit “Shimmer.” Since then the band has sold over 3.5 million albums in the U.S. and recorded additional top hits including “Innocent,” “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” and “Falls on Me.” Fuel has performed sold out tours all over the world, headlining venues and opening for bands including Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Creed and 3 Doors Down.

Lit
Fullerton, Calif. rock band Lit is comprised of brothers A. Jay and Jeremy Popoff, and lifelong friends, Kevin Baldes and Allen Shellenberger. Their second album A Place in the Sunspawned three hit singles: “Miserable,” which went to #3 on the Modern Rock Tracks, and whose video featured the flaxen voluptitude of Pamela Anderson; “Zip-Lock,” and “My Own Worst Enemy” (which held the number one position on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for three months, and received a Billboard Music Award for the biggest modern rock song of 1999). They rocked Woodstock 1999 and supported the Offspring, No Doubt and Garbage, spanning the globe and clocking in close to 500 shows between 1999 and 2000. And riding on its heels, A Place In The Sun’s 2001 follow-up Atomic boasted yet another Top Ten single for the band, “Lipstick And Bruises,” and a support tour with Kid Rock.

Hinder
Hinder debuted on the rock scene in 2005 with their first album Extreme Behavior, which sold over three-million copies in the U.S. and featured the breakthrough single “Lips of an Angel” which hit #1 on the Billboard Pop Chart. The album also featured popular hits “Better Than Me” and “Get Stoned.” The follow-up in 2008, Take it to the Limit, surpassed Gold status after debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 with over 80,000 copies sold first week. Meanwhile, their third effort, American Nightmare, was released in 2010. Along the way, the band has shared the stage on national tours with everyone Mötley Crüe and Nickelback to Papa Roach and Saving Abel. After nearly a decade, Hinder is stronger than ever, releasing their fourth full-length album for Republic Records, Welcome to the Freakshow.

Everclear
Founded in Portland, Ore. in 1992, Everclear independently released their debut album World of Noise. The band’s relentless touring regimen and D.I.Y. promotional tactics helped set to set the stage for the platinum-level breakthrough of 1995’s Sparkle and Fade, which spawned the hits “Santa Monica” and “Heroin Girl.” The band’s ascendancy continued with 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow, which produced the radio hits “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” and “Father of Mine.” In 2012 Everclear released their newest album “Invisible Stars” featuring new songs that embody the same qualities of punch, sturdy songcraft and edgy introspection that have long endeared Everclear to its large and loyal worldwide fan base.

Live
Live burst onto the burgeoning alternative scene in 1991, but it was their sophomore album Throwing Copper that solidified their status as bonafide superstars. The album featured hit songs “Lightning Crashes,” “All Over You,” and “I Alone.” The album reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album “One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time”, while tastemakers from Spin to The New York Times lauded it with equal praise. Upon release, its 1997 follow-up Secret Samadhi immediately shot to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went six-times platinum. However, on The Distance to Here in 1999, Live turned into an international powerhouse and jumped from arenas into stadiums all over the globe driven by the smash “The Dolphin’s Cry”. V and Birds of Pray followed, continuing to expand their legacy and satiate the rabid and faithful fan base that they had amassed over nearly two decades. Live’s music remains a pillar of the nineties both musically and culturally. The band infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that stood out from the early nineties pack.

Filter
Shoving a fist in the face of tradition has been Filter’s modus operandi since the release of their self-produced debut album, Short Bus. The album’s rough-around-the-edges production brought the group’s first hit single “Hey Man, Nice Shot” which peaked at #10 on Billboards Modern Rock Tracks. Their second album, Title of Record, featured hit song “Take a Picture” which has been featured in numerous motion pictures including The Girl Next Door, Saving Grace, Little Nicky and Pay it Forward. Filter’s sixth album, The Sun Comes Out will be released on June 4, 2013.

Sponge
Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album Rotting Piñata. Emerging from Detroit with hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles)” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 onBillboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status. Sponge’s follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including “Wax Ecstatic” and “Have You Seen Mary?” The band’s music was also featured in popular movies The Craft, Chasing Amy, Mall Ratsand Empire Records. Having shared stages the world over with Guns N’ Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Kiss, to name just a few, Sponge continues to be one of rock’s most sought after live acts. Front man Vinnie Dombroski captivates audiences with his powerful voice, heart-on-his-sleeve lyrics and high-octane stage presence. In May of 2013 Sponge will release a highly anticipated new album Stop the Bleeding.

Puddle of Mudd
Puddle of Mudd is a Kansas City, Missouri based post-grunge rock band that has been capturing audiences for more than a decade. Their debut studio album Come Clean, released in 2001 gave them the breakthrough to the mainstream music scene with hit singles like “She Hates Me,” “Blurry” and “Drift and Die” and “Blurry,” a power rock ballad which peaked at #1 on both Billboard’s Hot Modern Rock Tracks and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks.

After a decade of churning out their own material, Puddle of Mudd have put down their pens in favor of recording 11 classic rock tracks by artists such as: The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Steve Miller Band, AC/DC, Elton John and many others.
