The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Announces July Entertainment Performances

June 4, 2011 by  

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas continues its line-up of touring artists at its casino floor hot-spots Book & Stage, Bond, and The Chandelier with artist residencies through July. All performances are open to the public.

Book & Stage

A polished, masculine and comfortable setting, Book & Stage is a daytime live sports viewing lounge and by evening becomes a music performance-centric venue with popular acts.

The following acts will be playing at Book & Stage:

Royal Bangs

Royal Bangs is frontman Ryan Schaefer, drummer Chris Rusk and guitarist Sam Stratton, who have been playing together since their high school days. After an electric performance at Lollapalooza 2010, SPIN Magazine crowned Royal Bangs as one of the best bands at the festival, stating, “Like a mix of LCD Soundsystem’s pulsing electro-punk and the new wave-y shimmer of the Strokes, Royal Bangs tracks… featured frenetic riffs, busy drums, and dance-y keyboard melodies…Royal Bangs’ set was without question the best thing…so far at Lollapalooza”.

Friday, July 1 – Sunday, July 3 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

The Diamond Light

Los Angeles rock and soul band, The Diamond Light, formed over long summers and weekly blues jams back in New Hampshire. Singer and guitarist, Griffin Young, began writing songs with drummer Ian Ochs almost 10 years ago in Ian’s father’s band. Playing together in bars with their parents throughout high school, they eventually paired up with bassist Richy Jenness, and guitarist/vocalist Brian Stanley to form the final incarnation of The Diamond Light.

Monday, July 4 – Tuesday, July 5 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

The Soft Pack

The Soft Pack are a new band with a refreshing sound. Hailing from San Diego, California, the 20-something quartet, which features Matt Lamkin on vocals, co-founder Matty McLoughlin on guitar, David Lantzman on bass and Brian Hill on drums, create a fresh, razor-sharp, no-frills, infectious racket.

Wednesday, July 6 – Saturday, July 9 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

The Nervous Wreckords

After 3 albums, 4 EPs, and 5 years of extensive international touring, co-singer/guitarist/songwriter of LOUIS XIV, Brian Karscig met Anthony Saffery (producer and member of UK band Cornershop) in 2008 while having a drink in a hotel bar before a gig in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They kept in touch, sharing ideas, and in 2009, The Nervous Wreckords were born. They created momentum in 2010 with the release of their full-length debut, VALUMINIUM. The LP has been hailed as “The 1st Audio Prescription” by many and features more of the lyrically clever songs, beats and catchy guitar riffs that The Nervous Wreckords fans have grown to love.

Sunday, July 10 – Tuesday, July 12 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

Graffiti6

Often, the best ideas come when you rip up the rulebook and follow what feels good. Just ask Graffiti6. The unlikely pairing of producer TommyD and singer/songwriter Jamie Scott began as an experiment neither thought would work and has grown into a pop project so refreshingly rule-free a sense of adventure seeps from every song. Try to categorize Graffiti6 and you’re in trouble. You’ll certainly spot vintage soul influences, the pair’s shared love of Hendrix, folk and funk. You’ll hear house and hip hop beats destined to fill dance floors. At the heart of the songs are pop melodies you could sit down with a guitar and strum. But Graffiti6 don’t make music to be analyzed. From the moment they named their band by flicking through pages of their favorite books and calling out the first words their eyes fell on – Lionel Stingray and Suitcase Unannounced were close contenders – the pair’s main aim has been to have fun.

Wednesday, July 13 – Friday, July 15 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

honeyhoney

honeyhoney is the jazzy, twangy, rollicking collaboration between vocalist Suzanne Santo and guitarist Ben Jaffe. Prior to joining the duo, Jaffe recorded music for TV and film; he then met Santo (an actress whose resume included stints on Law & Order and Blind Justice) through a mutual friend, who took Jaffe to see one of Santo’s solo gigs. The two began holding informal songwriting sessions and soon discovered a musical partnership. Adopting the name honeyhoney, they began touring and will hit the road with Christina Perri this summer.

Saturday, July 16 from approximately 9:30PM – 10:00PM

Christina Perri

In July 2010, a struggling singer-songwriter and musician named Christina Perri had a life-changing moment when she was asked to perform a song she had written, a defiant break-up anthem called “Jar of Hearts,” on the hit FOX show So You Think You Can Dance. The raw, emotional quality of her performance connected with viewers and catapulted the 24-year-old Philadelphia native into the public eye. “Jar of Hearts” went on to sell a million downloads and land Perri, who was then supporting herself as a café manager in Beverly Hills, a deal with Atlantic Records.

Saturday, July 16 from 10:30PM – 11:30PM

Olin & The Moon

Spawning from the jagged, green and snow-crusted mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho the founding members of Olin & The Moon came together at a young age and have played music of all kinds over the years. Singer/Songwriter David LaBrel along with his brother and lead guitarist Travis, joined forces with drummer Marshall Vore to create a strong bond and musical friendship. After moving to Los Angeles the boys met up with Brian McGinnis and Kyle Vicioso to create the final lineup of Olin & The Moon.

Monday, July 18 – Tuesday, July 19 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

Uh Huh Her

Uh Huh Her is Leisha Hailey and Camily Grey. Where most new bands play their first gig in front of a handful of people, Hailey and Grey debuted to a packed house of industry heads, critics and fans, many of whom might have been more familiar with Hailey’s character Alice on The L Word than they were with her role in ’90s indie duo The Murmurs. For Grey, it was her first group project since a tenure with lo-fi indie outfit Mellowdrone. There was no shortage of hype, and even though their backing band consisted of one iPod, they delivered the goods in spades.

Wednesday, July 20 – Saturday, July 23 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

Clouded Vision

Based out of Central California, Kevin Hayashi formed Clouded Vision while finishing Business School at Fresno State University. Heavy influence from the snowboarding, surf and skate culture mixed with the influence of artists like Jack Johnson, Sublime, and Dave Matthews gave CV plenty of stimulation to create their own sound. Bringing a smile to everyone’s face and getting the party going is what Kevin Hayashi and Clouded Vision are best known for.

Monday, July 25 – Tuesday, July 26 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM

Saint Motel

The explosive, cinematic, hard-pop band Saint Motel is, to put it best, hard to resist and damn fun. Saint Motel is A/J Jackson (vocals, guitar), A Sharp (lead guitar), Greg Erwin (drums) and Dak (bass) are musicians who constantly experiment and push boundaries within the songwriting process to keep evolving their signature sound that features unique guitar tones and surprising sonic twists throughout.

Wednesday, July 27 – Saturday, July 30 from 10:00PM – 11:00PM and 12:00AM – 1:00AM, alternating set times nightly with The Silent Comedy

The Silent Comedy

In 1996, the preacher father of brothers Jeremiah and Joshua Zimmerman sold all of their possessions and launched the family on a worldwide adventure that included travels through Asia, Russia, the Middle East, Europe and the entirety of the United States. From playing folk instruments in the foothills of the Himalayas, to drawing crowds around pianos at Spanish shopping malls, the boys kept their musical outlet alive by any means possible. Different elements of this life history eventually culminated in the formation of The Silent Comedy 10 years later.
