Guests had a blast as they mingled, sipped on drinks and enjoyed musical stylings, while Las Vegas’ top performers hit the stage with absolutely no rules. At the center of the uncensored madness was Moreno’s band, who invited the stars amongst the crowd to perform at random including Fatone, Neil, Ashba, Shortino, Grimm, Bell, Holmes and Sweets. The artists performed hits ranging from 70s rock to holiday classics.
