Phat Strad played to a packed house at the LAX nightclub in the Luxor, opening for rapper Vanilla Ice! The girls played a few of their most rockin’ songs, including Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4,” Pat Benatar’s “Heartbreaker,” and Kansas’s “Carry On Wayward Son.” The crowd was enthusiastic about the electric string instruments and mesmerized by the virtuosic solos – made infinitely cooler by wah pedals and distortion, of course! Dare we say the quartet held the crowd’s attention just as much, if not more, than Mr. Ice himself?
The original Las Vegas Electric String Quartet traveled to Phoenix in April 2012 to play a benefit event for the Phoenix Suns Charities. The girls serenaded an enthusiastic crowd in the U.S. Airways Arena, redecorated as a Vegas quality lounge. Attendees included basketball aficionados, sponsors, and players alike, and the ladies of Phat Strad even got to hang out behind the scenes with the Suns cheerleaders! The party was rockin’, the audience loved the music, and the event raised a ton of money for charity. We consider that a slam dunk!
Phat Strad Electric String Quartet played at the Bellagio in Las Vegas September 29 for an evening of luxury fashion and powerful fighters! The event, a benefit for the World Boxing Council Charities, included an auction of 12 unique Hublot watches. The boxing legends themselves – including George Foreman, Cesar Chavez, Mike Tyson, and Sugar Ray Leonard – were summoned to the stage accompanied by the music of Phat Strad!
