The April edition of “Mondays Dark” on Monday, April 21, 2014 at 8:30 pm at Body English Nightclub in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino will take the audience on a musical journey through the movies with “Movie Night: Soundtracks Live,” celebrating Hollywood while at the same time raising funds for The Miracle League of Las Vegas.
According to Mark Shunock, originator and coordinator of the monthly event, special guests will include John Robert Hall (of “Glee” and “Rock of Ages”), the Ladies of Bella Electric Strings, comedian Shayma Tash (featured on “The Tonight Show”), Stephanie Calvert (lead singer of Starship), Graham Fenton (of “Jersey Boys”), Maren Wade (“Vegas! The Show” and “Fantasy”), the cast of “Million Dollar Quartet,” Las Vegas legend Mr. Marc Love Chemerys and Peter Anthony Garcia (aka Chi Chi Rones) and Elisa Furr, International headliner and TV and film music composer.
“Each month I get more and more excited about the response to Mondays Dark and the money we are raising for Las Vegas charities,” says Shunock, who plays Lonny in the hit “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian. “With music from the movies as our theme this month, I know we can sell out the show again and help raise funds that can help The Miracle League achieves it’s goal for children and adults with cognitive and/or physical challenges to play baseball.”
Every month Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of guests including stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment - and a lot of laughs. “Mondays Dark” partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity each month to raise funds for that charity with ticket sales and silent auction items.
Previous charities to benefit from Mondays Dark include Opportunity Village and AFAN (AID FOR AID of NEVADA), Nevada SPCA and the St. Therese Center HIV Outreach and The Shine Family Foundation.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by visiting www.MondaysDark.com and are limited to 200 tickets per event. One hundred percent of all ticket sales will benefit The Miracle League of Las Vegas.” Doors open at 8:30 pm with the show beginning at 9:30 pm. For more information call 702-485-1262.
