Golden Rainbow Announces “Ribbon of Life” Talent Lineup and Living Ribbon Kick-Off Event

 

Golden Rainbow has announced a star-studded talent lineup for this year’s “Ribbon of Life.” The 2015 showcase, Rockin’ the Ribbon, will feature stars from Las Vegas’ favorite shows including “ShowStoppers,” “Jubilee,” “Jersey Boys,” “Million Dollar Quartet,” “MJ Live,” “Legends in Concert,” “Pin Up,” “Vegas! The Show,” and more. The rock and roll themed show will take place at 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 28 at The New Tropicana Las Vegas. Tickets are now on sale at www.goldenrainbow.org.

 

“Since its inception almost 30 years ago, Golden Rainbow has assembled the most talented performers in Las Vegas to raise awareness and funds for those affected by HIV/AIDS,” said Golden Rainbow Executive Director Gary Costa. “We are so pleased that ‘Ribbon of Life’ will continue its reputation of assembling the best possible entertainment for such a worthy cause again this year.”

 

To kick off “Ribbon of Life,” Golden Rainbow will build a Living Ribbon on Wednesday, June 10. Attendees are encouraged to show up at the corner of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard (outside of The New Tropicana Las Vegas), donning their favorite shades of red at 9:30 a.m. At 10 a.m. participants will be put into the formation of a ribbon as a symbol of solidarity for people living with HIV/AIDS. A limited quantity of red shirts will also be provided on site for walk-up participants.

 

Rockin’ the Ribbon will benefit men, women, and children living in Clark County whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS. The production will feature a wide variety of rock and roll themed numbers performed by stars of the Las Vegas Strip. The 29th annual “Ribbon of Life” event will be hosted by Edie (“Zumanity”) and Sean McAllister (“MORE” and “MORE Access”). The show will be immediately followed by an after party in the Havana Room, where attendees can mix and mingle with performers and partake in a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres.

 

“Ribbon of Life” was created 29 years ago by members of the Las Vegas entertainment industry who saw the need for a support system when one of their colleagues was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. To raise awareness and money in order to help fight the disease, entertainers organized a show. The show, then called “Golden Rainbow,” led to the creation of the nonprofit organization. The annual event is one of the largest HIV/AIDS fundraisers in the state of Nevada and is Golden Rainbow’s main source of revenue.

 

Tickets are now on sale and sponsorship packages are available. For more information, visit www.goldenrainbow.org.

Pull out your calendar and circle March 2.

Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower’s new original show PIN UP™, inspired by classic pin up girl calendars and starring PLAYBOY’s 2011 Playmate of the Year® and Bettie Page Clothing model Claire Sinclair, will now debut in the Stratosphere Theater on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 10:30 p.m.

PIN UP™ was previously announced to open Monday, February 25, 2013.

“Arrival of a new state-of-the-art lighting system designed specifically for PIN UP™ was delayed due to inclement weather,” said Matt Mascali, Vice President of Entertainment at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. “We owe it to our performers to make sure every component of the show matches the enormous talent on stage.”

Featuring an impressive cast of dancers, singers and a live six-piece band with a horn section led by acclaimed trumpeter, conductor and composer Dave Perrico, PIN UP™ is a fast-paced, swingin’ production that will transport audiences to a modern version of a vintage era where red lips, corsets and garter stockings grace the most beautiful of women.

Famous for her curvy figure and sumptuous smile, Sinclair won worldwide fame on the pages of the iconic PLAYBOY® magazine, first as Miss October in 2010 and later as PLAYBOY’s 2011 Playmate of the Year®. She has been featured on E!’s hit reality television shows The Bunny House and Holly’s World, and was a special guest performer for Crazy Horse Paris in 2010 and 2011. Sinclair also starred in a commercial for Bettie Page Clothing as well as made numerous appearances across the country on the clothing company’s behalf.

Critically acclaimed Stratosphere headliner Frankie Moreno is co-producer of the new show, created the concept and scored a high-energy collection of swingin’ music for PIN UP™, which includes his contemporary twist on nostalgic covers plus several new originals. Moreno was named “Best All-Around Performer” by the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Best of Las Vegas in 2012, and “Best Strip Headliner” by Las Vegas Weekly. Moreno recently wowed the nation with his stellar performance on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

Lacey Schwimmer of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars fame choreographed the dance sequences featuring a wide variety of dance styles weaved through the production’s month-by-month vignettes, taking the audience on a visual and emotional journey of the calendar year. The show will feature four gorgeous female dancers and one talented male dancer.

PIN UP™ show time will be at 10:30 p.m., five nights a week, Thursday through Monday. Tickets are $49.99 plus taxes, $10 more for VIP seats. Guests must be 21 or older to attend the show.
