Suncoast Goes Back to the ’80s This Summer

July 10, 2010 by  

The Whip Its
Celebrating the nostalgia and new wave nature of the ‘80s music scene, Suncoast Hotel and Casino has added two “totally rad” and popular local bands to the entertainment lineup for the summer—The Whip Its and Loveshack. 

Performing ‘80s hits such as Blondie’s “One Way Or Another” and Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl,” The Whip Its have made a name for themselves in Las Vegas with their blend music and witty narrative. The group is made up of a unique ensemble of performers including vocal duo Dieter (inspired by “Sprockets” on Saturday Night Live) and Ivana Hump, a Euro dominatrix that commands the stage (and the attention of the audience) with a whip and leather ensemble. Completing the retro vibe, the singers are backed by a full band dressed as “Devo drones.”



Formed in 1995, in demand ‘80s tribute band Loveshack brings their high-energy act to the Suncoast. Singing all of the great ‘80s tunes by Human League, The Go Go’s, Madonna, Duran Duran, Soft Cell and New Order. Having performed in many hotel casinos on the Strip, Loveshack has been recognized by the readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal and their “Best of Las Vegas” list, voted “Best Band” by the readers of Las Vegas City Life and voted “Favorite Band” by readers of What’s On. The five-member group takes on physical and costumed characteristics of recognizable ‘80s singers such as Devo, Adam Ant, Slash, Madonna and Mike D. from the Beastie Boys, offering a visual and musical representation of the decade.

Beginning July 9, The Whip Its will perform every Friday and Loveshack will perform every Saturday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the Suncoast Lounge. Starting August 4 and throughout the remainder of the summer, both groups move poolside from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., The Whip Its on Friday and Loveshack on Saturday.

Admission is free and guests must be 21 or older to attend. For further information visit or call 702.636.7111.
