The Hard Rock Hotel kicked off the New Year’s festivities early with the re-opening of its infamous nightclub Body English and two bands at Vinyl on Thursday and Friday nights.

At Vinyl with reggae artists The Aggrolites performed on Thursday. Local Las Vegas band One Pin Short started off the night of entertainment with songs “Revolution,” “Since You’ve Come Around” and “Waiting.” Following, the crowd danced to The Aggrolites feel-good music. The band played a 19-song set including “Work To Do,” “Dirty Reggae,” “Someday” and more. After the band’s show, the crowd screamed for an encore. The group of five came back and covered The Beatles’ “Don’t Let Me Down” as the whole room sang along.

The talk of the town became reality with the epic return of Body English on Friday. The beautiful place lit up while patrons partied the night away. Popular Indie DJs provided stylings for the night including the high-energy headliner Sharam as well as Boris MD, Justin Baulé and Ryan Christian. In true Sin City fashion, the stage was complete with go-go dancers in studded bras and laser shows. The talented DJs had guests moving and grooving as they reveled in the nightclub’s beautiful décor including the iconic, vintage chandeliers. Additionally, DJ G-Minor and DJ Supa James were present spinning music in the lavish, private Parlor.

Across the casino, guests at Vinyl were celebrating with psychobilly trio Reverend Horton Heat. Jello Biafra and Tijuana Panthers warmed up the crowd with their rock music. Then Reverend Horton Heat took the stage in front of hundreds of people and delivered the crazy fun show that the band is known for. The group gave a heartfelt speech as they reminisced on its last 25 years in the music industry and had the crowd excited and on its feet as they played “Psychobilly Freakout,” a cover of “Run Run Rudolph,” “Lonesome Train” and more.
