Next, Bennett and Ruvo took to the stage to discuss Bennett’s career, milestone birthday and what Keep Memory Alive and brain health means to him. Ruvo then lead the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday,” which concluded with a Dom Pérignon champagne toast by Shunock as the marquees illuminated with Bennett’s picture. Las Vegas marquees that helped mark the occasion included Bally’s Las Vegas, Caesars Palace, Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Fashion Show Mall, Fremont Street Experience, Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, Harrah’s Las Vegas, M Resort, Maverick Helicopters, Miracle Mile Shops, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, New York-New York Hotel & Casino, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood, Rio All-Suite hotel & Casino, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, The Cromwell, The Linq Hotel & Casino, Tropicana Casino Hotel Resort, Wynn | Encore.

Couples will soon be able to celebrate a crazy little thing called love at the new LOVE IT LOUD Rock & Roll Wedding Chapel at KISS® By Monster Mini Golf®. The new venue, opening May 19 inside Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, will set the stage for weddings, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies with an all-new stage, expanded lineup of rock n’ roll ministers, and wedding packages that make the big day a walk in Paradise City.

 

“We’re calling on Vegas’ talented pool of impersonators to join our team as we turn the volume up to 11 with the new LOVE IT LOUD Rock & Roll Wedding Chapel,” said Christina Vitagliano, CEO/Founder of Monster Mini Golf® and KISS By Monster Mini Golf. “From concert ticket invitations and guitar picks lining the aisle instead of roses, to rock n’ roll impersonator ministers and the headlining act on stage, the LOVE IT LOUD Rock & Roll Wedding Chapel will be the ultimate place for couples to kickstart their happily ever after.”

 

Auditions for Rock n’ Roll Impersonator Minister Roles To Be Held May 4
KISS By Monster Mini Golf is calling all rock n’ roll impersonators who “think they’re sexy” and “have the moves like Jagger” to “express themselves” during auditions to join the minister lineup for the LOVE IT LOUD Rock & Roll Wedding Chapel. The venue already has KISS impersonators covered, but is looking to add iconic rock n’ roll impersonators such as: Madonna, Prince, Mick Jagger, Cyndi Lauper, ZZ Top, Billy Idol, Elvis, Joan Jett, Twisted Sister, Steve Tyler, Axl Rose, and more.

 

Auditions will be held Wednesday, May 4 from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. on the Masquerade Stage at the Masquerade Village inside The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Applicants should come in costume, prepared to perform a mock wedding ceremony approx. 5 minutes in length.

 

KISS impersonators need not apply as those slots are already taken. Applicants do not have to be ordained, though ordained ministers will naturally have more opportunities. However, non-ordained ministers will be able to perform wedding vow renewals and non-legal binding ceremonies.

KISS® By Monster Mini Golf®
Moves to Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino – Spring 2016

KISS® By Monster Mini Golf®, a unique rock ‘n roll themed amusement attraction based around the world-renowned band KISS®, is swinging into the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino with an opening set for Spring 2016.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf closed its original location on the corner of Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road on February 6, 2016, as it makes its way to an expanded space and rock ‘n roll environment located inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.  The original location opened its doors in March 2012, and has hosted numerous KISS band member appearances, rock ‘n roll memorabilia shows, weddings, birthday parties, rock legend autograph signings, unique private events and nearly half a million mini golf enthusiasts.

“Being in a hip indoor casino environment is going to provide KISS By Monster Mini Golf an expanded space to not only provide the coolest indoor KISS-themed mini golf experience, but it will allow us the space and security to showcase an amazing collection of KISS Museum memorabilia,” said Christina Vitagliano, CEO/Founder of Monster Mini Golf® and KISS By Monster Mini Golf.  “We are excited to join the Rio with an affordable attraction that rocks,” she said.

KISS By Monster Mini Golf will be located in the Masquerade Village with convenient self-parking in the Masquerade Parking Garage.

The new KISS By Monster Mini Golf location will be a 13,000 square-foot “KISS themed” attraction that showcases an indoor glow-in-the-dark custom-designed, rockin’ 18-hole miniature golf course filled with state-of-the-art video & animatronics, and never-seen-before KISS props. The environment will be filled with arcade games, a special event room, a colossal sized KISS and rock ‘n roll gift shop, and a rock ‘n roll wedding chapel with themed wedding packages. In addition, a live DJ will rock the house, throughout the days and many “Crazy, Crazy Nights” with continuous KISS music, trivia, contests and prizes creating a place embraced by locals, tourists, and rockers of all ages.

A highlight of this KISS themed attraction will be the museum-quality memorabilia located throughout the attraction.  Hundreds of pieces will be on display including: Drummer, Eric Carr’s Porsche that was gifted to him by Paul Stanley & Gene Simmons upon signing on with KISS; Original KISS Drummer Peter Criss’ Spirit of ’76 Tour stage used drum stool; every KISS Album since inception signed by all band members; original 70’s KISS Pinball Machine and actual band member guitars, personal belongings of Bill Aucoin’s, Bruce Kulick’s and more.

Monster Mini Golf was founded in 2004 by visionary, Christina Vitagliano who had “Great Expectations” to create an enjoyable and affordable amusement facility.  Her inspiration expanded to more 30 indoor blacklight themed miniature golf courses across the USA and Canada where “Unmasked” monsters with lively personalities are par for the course.  Her imagination caught the attention of Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley and KISS By Monster Mini Golf was born. Live Nation Merchandise, the exclusive worldwide merchandise and licensing agent for KISS, brokered the deal.
