The Last Vegas are a hard rock band from Chicago whose style draws from glam, punk, and sleaze metal. Comprised of Chad Cherry (lead vocals), John Wator (guitar), Adam Arling (guitar), Danny Smash (bass), and Nate Arling (drums) the band cites among its influences AC/DC, the Stooges, Mötley Crüe, and Ted Nugent. The Last Vegas made their recording debut with the full-length album Lick 'Em and Leave 'Em (2004) on the independent label Get Hip Records. A second full-length album, Seal the Deal (2006), followed on the label. After leaving Get Hit Records, the Last Vegas released a five-track EP on iTunes, High Class Trash (2007), featuring the song "Raw Dog," which had been featured in the popular video game Guitar Hero II (2006). A full-length album, The Last Vegas (2008), followed a year later. Also in 2008, the Last Vegas were invited to open for Mötley Crüe on their "Saints of Los Angeles" tour after winning a battle of the bands contest hosted by Guitar Center at the Whiskey a Go Go in Los Angeles. The Mötley Crüe tour, also featuring Hinder and Theory of a Deadman, carried on well into 2009, filling arenas nationwide, and ensured plenty of publicity for the Last Vegas, whose concurrently released single, "I'm Bad," became their biggest hit to date. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
