Photos: Hip-Hop Icon Lloyd Banks Takes Over LAX Nightclub With A Live Performance – Saturday, March 24

Last night LAX Nightclub welcomed hip-hop artist Lloyd Banks as he took over the mega-club and gave clubgoers an miniature concert.

Arriving after 1 a.m. the Billboard Hot 100 artist immediately hit the main stage performing many of his chart topping hits. Banks hopped on the mic addressing the crowd, “I have been doing this for ten years,” he said , “If you have love for Lloyd Banks put your hands up!” The crowd roared as clubgoers threw their hands in the air and cheered.

Performing crowd favorites such as “I’m So Fly,” “Karma,” “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley” and taking it back with “On Fire,” the admired artist threw his towel into the crowd and had the reveling clubgoers on their feet.

After a memorable performance, the artist took his seat at his VIP booth where he joined his entourage and admired guests, sipped champagne, and danced the night away.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hosts Charity Benefit Circus Couture To Raise Proceeds For St. Baldrick’s Foundation


Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hosts Charity Benefit Circus Couture to Raise Proceeds for St. Baldrick’s Foundation
Performance and Art event at The Joint concert venue on June 26, 2011

Circus Couture presents a unique and extravagant evening called “The Revolution,” a performance, fashion and art event inside The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 26. Comprised of performers and employees of shows on the Las Vegas Strip, Circus Couture will donate the proceeds from the event to benefit St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Circus Couture’s “The Revolution” features both a silent and live art auction as well as explosive circus performances intertwined with runway fashion. Circus Couture was born when team Cirque du SoBald, fundraisers for St. Baldrick’s, envisioned a rock ‘n’ roll charity event that would be hip, spectacular and original. In 2010 Circus Couture’s efforts yielded a $105,000 grant to Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada. They are the only clinic in the state that treats kids with cancer regardless of their family’s ability to pay for services. The event was an unprecedented fundraising and experiential success.

“This is a city built on entertainment; it’s what Las Vegas does best. It is also a community with a heart that cares about its children. Circus Couture is a natural extension of both,” said Circus Couture Artistic Director, Erica Linz. “Last year we invented the Circus Couture wheel. This year we send it spinning with a bigger and bolder spectacle to benefit Las Vegas kids. Wait until you see “The Revolution” we have planned.”

Tickets for Circus Couture’s “The Revolution” may be purchased online at www.circus-couture.com. Tickets are $35 in advance and $45 at the door. VIP reservations may be made by contacting Brett Palmer at vip@circus-couture.com or by calling 702.217.0429. For additional information on Circus Couture, visit http://www.circus-couture.com/.

About Circus Couture
Circus Couture is a Nevada non-profit organization raising money for pediatric cancer care and research. Funds are raised through their annual circus, fashion and art events and then granted to the Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada which is the only clinic in the state that treats kids with cancer regardless of their family’s ability to pay for services. Circus Couture works closely with St. Baldrick’s Foundation and their sister fundraising team, Cirque du SoBald. Circus Couture is a volunteer organization comprised primarily of performers, technicians, and employees from shows on the Las Vegas strip. Circus Couture is a grassroots organization with no affiliation with any company or corporation. In 2011, Circus Couture and Cirque du SoBald aim to raise $110,000 to fund the deficit in a grant for the Children’s Specialty Center to continue their programs and bring new life saving treatments to Nevada’s children.

Since 2000, events have taken place in 24 countries and 50 U.S. states, raising over $68 million. More than 106,000 volunteers have shaved their heads in solidarity of children with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family – each one becoming a walking billboard for the cause.

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.
