New Wedding Chamber of Commerce launches in Las Vegas

Chamber mission includes cementing Las Vegas’ position as the Wedding Capital – and Wedding Experts – of the World

Las Vegas attracts more wedding tourists than any other location in the world, and has for decades. The newly established Las Vegas Wedding Chamber of Commerce will kick off its launch with a membership mixer and presentations from local dignitaries and tourism boards.

According to Clark County Clerk Lynn Goya, “Las Vegas hosted almost 82,000 marriages last year that generated over $2 billion in non-gaming tourism revenue to Clark County.” Yet, besides this staggering number, wedding tourism in Las Vegas is down. The Chamber unites the wedding industry under one umbrella to strengthen its wedding brand and allow prospective couples to easily uncover the cornucopia of wedding resources within the valley.

Wedding tourism is a core industry in Las Vegas. It’s part of our international brand,” State Sen. Ruben Kihuen

Wedding tourism in the “wedding capital of the world” is down. Marketing efforts for our city are focused on gambling, conventions and dining. For decades it has been taken for granted that the wedding industry would remain with out the support of marketing efforts directed at attracting planning couples to our city.

Today, we have formed the Las Vegas Wedding Chamber of Commerce as a collective voice to work with our officials to strengthen our industry and the international brand known as Las Vegas.

SIN CITY PRESENTS/AUG. 2014

My Gibson Flying V is a 2009 model, and I have to say that I was very surprised after I bought it and settled in to it what a nice guitar it is. Well built and sounds great. I had a 1976 reissue way back in my early days of playing, and I could never get the sound out of that guitar that I liked, but this one is an ace.

The Jackson RR Pro Series is a made in Japan model, and has quite a story behind it. For many years I have been told that I look like venerable (former) KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent (the first person who ever said that to me was Gene Simmons in 1997, and that for some reason opened the Vinnie look-a-like floodgates that have persisted to this day!). After Randy Rhoads passed away, Vinnie Vincent became the first pro guitarist to make his Jackson RR model guitar famous by using it in his KISS and solo career years. The KISS Night In Las Vegas fundraiser inspired me to do something fun- I would dress up like Vinnie in his ‘Lick It Up’ getup for a couple of songs. This meant I needed a Jackson RR model, which I bought, and then had custom painted hot pink (like Vinnie’s) by Ryan Evans at Count’s Kustoms. Then Alan Dreher (of AMD Guitarworks) and I rebuilt the entire guitar, stripping all of the entry-level chrome hardware (Vinnie’s pink Jackson had all black hardware) and electronics, and put on a real German Floyd Rose, upgraded Jackson tuners, wiring etc and turned it into a real guitar. The whole thing turned out great, and people loved it. It’s not really a guitar that I will ever use, as I am not an 80’s type guy at all, but it is actually a really great guitar in terms of being a player and a fun dust collector!
