This Saturday, Feb 12, Tommy Rocker’s Cantina and Grill, located at 4275 Dean Martin Drive, here in happy Las Vegas, hosted a charity event benefitting The Safe Nest Women Shelter with a fashionista variety show hosted by BAM! iNTrTAINMENT and C.N.R. Concepts, befittingly called, Rapture’s Riot.
The Truck Stop event, every Saturday from 10pm until 4am, greets you outside at Tommy Rockers, serving up a carvival of fabulous goodies such as pulled pork, Indian flatbread sandwiches, and other catering truck yummies. This is fast becoming a local hotspot, and every few weeks, Tommy Rocker’s hosts BOH Brawl, where gourmet chefs from all over compete in the cramped environment of a catering truck to see who has the makings of the best Chef. Mrs. Donna Rocker, of the superb Black Mountain Grill on Eastern Avenue, is one of the judges over the competition. Take a look at Tommy Rocker’s calender, this is an event that everybody should check out before it is gone. As always the food is great inside…and out…at Tommy Rocker’s.
The designers and promoters of this entertaining extravaganza , MzMina Kahn of BAM!, Amber F. of Ex Creations, the gorgeous MC of the program – Brieanna Brock of All Knight Studioz and Mike Adams of C.N.R. Concepts provided quite a show! Three bands played, Goldtop Bob – bluesy, jazzy, utterly awesome, with Goldtop Bob belting out tunes like a blues king makin’ love. The Fremonts – provided a creative effects twist on old school by Johnny Cash and Jerry Reed, with character player, Rob Rucker, jolting bass on his rocket red guitar. Thee Swank Bastards – rifted with alternative originals, comic intervals, and a screaming guitar show by Jesse, singer and lead guitarist, who riveted the audience with an over and behind his head jamm-fest. All three groups were tremendous!
Tommy Rockers also had a Burlesque Review, featuring a lineup of gorgeous creative artists by Nuclear Bombshells, featuring Stardust, Neon, Ivana Blaize and Sue Nami Sake. Neon did a sexy, jazz, vocal rendition of ‘Fever’, followed by an enamouring belly dance by Resa Athena.
