Reckless in Vegas × SAHARA

Reckless In Vegas, whose utterly distinctive sound offers a modern twist on Vintage Vegas, announced tickets are now on sale for its ongoing engagement at SAHARA Las Vegas, beginning June 30. Performing in the Las Vegas Strip’s fabled resort-casino, which recently completed a $150 million renovation and where Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, Buddy Hackett and Don Rickles once graced the showroom stage, Reckless In Vegas will appear in the SAHARA Las Vegas Theatre on Thursday and Friday evenings at 8:30 PM. Audiences can look forward to rocking out to the power trio’s exhilarating original renditions of beloved classics by the Rat Pack, Elvis Presley and more.

Reckless In Vegas steals audiences away to the bygone days of Las Vegas when the drinks were strong, the entertainers were charismatic and the music was intoxicating. The show combines the imagery, comedic banter, glamorous showgirls and classic music from Sin City’s 1960s “glory days” with a contemporary rock band aesthetic.

Members Michael Shapiro (band founder, lead vocals, guitar), Jack E. Roth (drums) and Chris Nichols (bass, vocals) have created a high-energy show incorporating live performances of modern versions of songs by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis Presley, Sonny & Cher, Frankie Valli, Neil Diamond, Johnny Cash and Bobby Darin with dynamic production-show elements.

Whether audiences remember the swinging Vegas lounge-era days or were born much later, Reckless In Vegas brings something for everyone. Video montages, dialogue, humor, modern hard-rocking grooves and tender moments of balladry combine to create a truly original take on this classic genre. Think The Rat Pack meets Green Day.

“Performing at the historic—yet completely reimagined—SAHARA Las Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip represents a dream come true for me,” says Shapiro. “There exists no better venue for our band, which reinvents and reinvigorates classic Las Vegas entertainment for contemporary audiences.”

About Michael Shapiro

Shapiro was raised in Las Vegas and, after stints in Oregon and California, returned to his hometown in 2015. He picked up his first instrument at age 13, and trained hard in guitar, vocals, piano and trumpet, attuning his ear to classical opera as well as rock. A chance encounter with a family friend struck the right chord and paved Shapiro’s way into music. At age 16, he had the opportunity to jam with Bruce Springsteen. The rocker’s energetic marathon performances spurred Shapiro to develop a taste for a raucous stage presence. After playing in various cover bands in his teens, Shapiro formed the band Trip, released several albums and toured. Being part of the VH1 Rock Across America Tour, Trip opened for such artists as Edwin McCain, Duncan Sheik, The Romantics and Cheap Trick. It was during an ill-fated gig opening for Great White when a tragic fire struck, that moved Shapiro to deeply reflect on life’s vagaries and whims.

He bounced back, releasing his first solo album, Somehow, Someway, and toured nationally, opening for the alt-rock band Live. After moving to San Rafael, Calif., he formed the power trio: Reckless in Vegas.

Shapiro’s style yields insight into his influences: Jimi Hendrix‘s relentless guitar riffs, Journey‘s Neal Schon, Carlos Santana and the melodic and powerful vocal styling of U2′s Bono

About Jack E. Roth

With more than 35 years’ experience, Roth has played drums and percussion on hundreds of projects associated with major labels and otherwise (including work with MCA, Universal, Interscope, MTV, VH1, Artisan, EA Sports), resulting in an extensive knowledge of playing, recording, production and engineering techniques.

Roth has performed all over the United States, headlining and opening for Guns N’ Roses, Aerosmith, Puddle of Mudd, Chickenfoot, Buckcherry, Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour), Fuel, Living Colour, Trapt, Adelita’s Way, Steel Panther, Deep Dark Robot, Cold, Smashmouth, Danzig, Static-X, Fear Factory, Slaughter, Vince Neil, Dokken, Ratt, Eddie Money, Michael Angelo, Rick Derringer, Michael McDonald, Dennis DeYoung (Styx), The Commodores, The Romantics, Al Stewart, Starship, Berlin, Mark Farmer (Grand Funk), The Family Stone, Pat Travers, Edgar Winter, Canned Heat, Ten Years After, Steppenwolf, Marshall Tucker Band, Three Dog Night, War, The Fixx, Vixen, Shotgun Messiah, Kik Tracee, Gilby Clark, Life, Sex & Death, Bang Tango, Gary Hoey and Love/Hate, among others.

He has also played in backing bands for Randy Jackson (Mariah Carey, Journey, American Idol), Dee Snider, Meat Loaf, Sabastian Bach (Skid Row), Nick St. Nicholas (Steppenwolf), Deborah Gibson, Sheri Belafonte, Frank Hannon (Tesla), Tony Fredianelli (Third Eye Blind), Steve Plunkett (Autograph) and Paul Revere & the Raiders.

Roth is endorsed by Ayotte Drums, Aquarian Drumheads and Gibraltar Hardware and is a proud member of ASCAP.

About Chris Nichols

Born in Newark, Ohio, as the son of a piano teacher, Nichols studied the piano, cello, guitar, drums and bass. His early years led him to Nashville where he toured with several artists throughout the nation. His desire to “Go West” led him to Las Vegas when the mob still owned the town. He saw the Sands and the Dunes casinos fall to their demise. Since moving to Sin City, he has recorded on several records both as an artist and an engineer.  Nichols actually shared the stage with Shapiro in Trip as they ascended to the height of that band’s career. With the help of several bands, he has also shared stages with Willie Nelson, Chris Isaak, Toto, Peter Frampton, Rick James and Lifehouse, to name just a few.

ChargerGoGo, World’s Largest Portable Phone Charging

ChargerGoGo, the world’s leading network of on-demand phone charging systems for commercial venues of all kinds, has now entered the U.S. market. Emerging as an essential amenity at a fast-growing number of businesses, ChargerGoGo’s kiosks may be found at the Las Vegas Convention Center, MGM Grand Garden Arena and AREA15, among hundreds of others. After establishing itself across Asia, where it deployed more than 1 million charging kiosks and attracted more than 360 million users and 20,000 distributors, ChargerGoGo is poised to become the largest shared power bank network in the United States.  

Unlike static charging stations, ChargerGoGo allows customers to pick up a portable battery, charge their phones and then return the battery to any nearby ChargerGoGo kiosk, a first-of-its-kind service to debut at this scale. Ideal for installation at restaurants, bars, nightclubs, coffee shops, stadiums, convention centers, hotels, hospitals and retail centers, ChargerGoGo allows users to charge their phones on the go, without wasting time or missing important notifications.  

With smartphones now considered essential to daily life, battery life has not kept pace with user consumption. In fact, 80 percent of all phones experience a low battery charge at least once a week while users are away from home, and nine out of 10 people experience “panic mode” when their phone battery goes below 20 percent. This occurrence can result in them leaving the business early, causing potential decreases in revenue. Offering a convenient mobile charging station enables venues to retain these customers and increase sales. 360 Magazine is very impressed by the number of advancements being made in the world to have a better technology outlet. 

“One of the most frequent requests our clients receive from customers is to help them charge their phones,” said Chris Meyer, chief executive officer, Chris Meyer Global, a consultancy specializing in the meetings and global trade industries. “Now, ChargerGoGo kiosks enable them to do so effortlessly, easing their minds and allowing them to enjoy their time worry-free while they’re at a meeting and events facility, bar, café, or any other commercial venue.”

In addition to its portable batteries, other features unique to ChargerGoGo include the kiosks’ customizable LED screens that can display the host’s promotional messages and a compact, modern design with custom wrapping options so the host venue can brand them with their logos or other imagery. Another innovative feature distinguishing ChargerGoGo from its competitors: venues that install the kiosks on their premises can earn passive income through the company’s revenue-sharing model.

“Our mission is to improve people’s lives by saving them from constantly dying phones while helping host venues boost sales, grow revenue, and elevate their customer experience,” said June Zhu, founder, ChargerGoGo. “Our vision is to bring ChargerGoGo charging stations to every commercial facility with foot traffic nationwide.”

Ferraro’s White Truffle Festival

White truffle season comes to Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar beginning October 1 through December 31. Ferraro’s announces nightly truffle specials and Nebbiolo wine pairing during which guests will savor one of the season’s most indulgent ingredients—Italian white truffles.
Italian white truffles are widely regarded as the most exquisite of all truffles. Their season runs typically from late October to late December. Truffles grow in the wild, where they enjoy a symbiotic relationship with mature oak, beech and hazelnut trees, from which they draw carbohydrates while growing underground. For this reason, truffles cannot be cultivated. That fact, together with their unmistakably rich and umami-filled flavor, makes truffles a universally rare and sought-after ingredient.
360 Magazine is excited to taste this season’s truffles. To make reservations, please call (702) 364-5300. The full menu follows:

Langhe Nebbiolo
Choice of one – Antipasto:
Carne Battuta

Sformato di Ricotta
Ricotta flan, pecorino, seasonal mushroom ragù, shaved white truffle

Barbaresco
Choice of one – Primo:
Tagliatelle Al Burro and Salvia
Flat ribbon pasta, butter, sage, shaved white truffle
Risotto Al Prosecco

Sautéed veal scaloppine, butter, sage, fried egg, shaved white truffles

About Grand Canyon Lodge – North Rim

Grand Canyon Lodge: North Rim is the only lodging inside the National Park on the North Rim. Located at Bright Angel Point, the Lodge was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987. The original Lodge was constructed in 1928 and burned in 1932. The current Lodge was rebuilt in 1937 using as much of the original structure as possible. Here guests may enjoy the quiet serenity of the North Rim while enjoying comfortable guest rooms and cabins. Our cabins were constructed in the 1930’s and 1940’s. While restrooms and showers have since been added, these cabins retain their original rustic charm. To this day, not one of the cabins has a television or radio. The Lodge Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It features regional cuisine; all-natural beef and poultry products are antibiotic and hormone free and the wine list showcases American organic selections available by the glass. Meanwhile the Gift Shop purveys Grand Canyon souvenirs, clothing and accessories. Free self-parking, bus, truck and RV parking are available.

2021 BattleBots World Championships

The hit TV show BattleBots, the world’s premier robot combat competition has found a new home in Las Vegas and tickets to be part of the live audience are on sale now. Robots from around the globe will convene to battle for the highly-anticipated 2021 BattleBots World Championship, which takes place inside the iconic BattleBox arena at Caesar’s Entertainment Studios on Aug. 23 through Sept. 4. Fans will witness world-class fighting machines and the very best domestic and international bots battling to the death in the hopes of being crowned the 2021 BattleBots World Champion. Presented by returning hosts Chris Rose and Kenny Florian, the sixth season of the popular show will air on Discovery Channel later this year.

More than 65 teams from the United States, Europe, Asia and South America will travel to Las Vegas with their fighting machines to slug it out in a series of battles to the death. The ultimate winner will take home the greatest prize in the sport: The Giant Nut, which is currently held by New Zealand’s End Game. The audience will witness the awesome spectacle of robot-on-robot, gear-grinding mayhem and see their favorite bots including Whiplash, Witch Doctor, Hydra, Blacksmith, Minotaur, End Game and Sawblaze. Also fighting this season is local favorite Jackpot, built by Las Vegas local Jeff Waters who had a record of 3-1 but lost in the Round of 32 in season five. He’s back this season to win the battle for Las Vegas.

There will be two ticketed sessions per day, culminating in the crowning of the 2021 BattleBots World Champion on Sept. 4. Dark days for the live show take place on Aug. 25, 26, 30 and Sept. 1.

BattleBots

BattleBots is the world leader in robot fighting sports. For over 20 years BattleBots has brought the joy of glorious robot fighting to TV and live audiences around the world.

BattleBots remains the most popular robotic combat sport in the world, created by Ed Roski and Greg Munson and now seen in over 150 countries. Produced by BattleBots, Inc. and Whalerock Industries, executive producers are Chris Cowan, Edward (Trey) Roski, Greg Munson, Tom Gutteridge, Aaron Catling and Evan Gatica. For Discovery Channel, Scott Lewers, Joseph Boyle and Wyatt Channell serve as executive producers, and Paola Espinosa as associate producer.

Las Vegas’ Own Team Jackpot

With the home field advantage this year, Team Jackpot co-creators Jeff Waters and Robert Stehn fully intend to keep the Giant Nut in Vegas. Waters discovered robotics as a kid by watching the original BattleBots and even created his own arena in his garage and began hosting small competitions. Eventually, Waters and Stehn sought to grow the robotics community in Las Vegas and created Vegas Combat Robots – their own robotics club. Jackpot is a weapon-focused robot with a dual vertical blade spinner called the Double Diamond. Team Jackpot has stayed true to their Vegas aesthetic by incorporating slot machine pull arms for the self-righter system and bottom-lit Lexan panels. They hold a season 5 record of 3-1 after being knocked out in Round 32.
