The Cosmic five-headed super beast, also known as Jack and the B-Fish, is an electrifying Rock and Roll band who currently reside in Las Vegas, NV. With many influences in Rock, Blues, Funk, and Psychedelic music, they fuse together a collision of colorful and brutal sounds that brings Rock and Roll back from the dead.

Since their establishment in Summer 2009, they have begun to telepathically sew their instruments together, creating psalms for the masses, and will take you on a trip far beyond this world…

Jack and the B-Fish have had the privilege of sharing the stage with national acts such as Here Come The Mummies, Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Toasters, Jam Stain, and The Dread Crew of Oddwood. They have played many well established venues such as House of Blues, Hard Rock Hotel, Hard Rock Café, Voodoo Lounge, South Point Showroom, and Count’s Vamp’d to name a few.

The Riviera Hotel & Casino One-Bedroom Deluxe Suite Review & Video

The Riviera Hotel & Casino One-Bedroom Deluxe Suite

These gorgeous, spacious suites have a separate living area from the guest bedroom and include an additional powder room. Each suite comes with 32” and 42” flat screen televisions, pillow top mattresses, complimentary in-room safe, AM/FM alarm clock radio, iron and ironing board and hairdryer. Bathroom includes marble vanity and shower/tub combination.

All I can say is from the time we stepped out of the car to check in we were treated so well, and felt so special because of this. Everyone was so helpful and knowledgeable.

The Suite: Amazing! Large, clean, beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows with sweet views from the 23rd floor. The bathrooms have numerous amenities, clean, very roomy. Our view from the baclony was amazing!

The Bed, oh man the bed! That is where the relaxing came in. It is a heavenly cloud of a bed with luxurious sheets and pillows.  The living area was nice to have for use of the table, the couches and lounging. We love the old style Vegas atmosphere that the hotel is trying to preserve.
The Riviera Hotel & Casino has recently undergone a multi-phase renovation and we think you should stay there!
