A portion of all tickets sold to RockTellz & CockTails to benefit the GRAMMY Foundation’s GRAMMY® Signature Schools Community Award program
LAS VEGAS – September 26, 2013 – SPI Entertainment is proud to announce RockTellz & CockTails has partnered with the GRAMMY Foundation® to benefit high school music programs in the Las Vegas community. Premiering Sept. 26 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino with GRAMMY Award-winning musician and acclaimed actor Meat Loaf, a portion of every ticket sold to RockTellz & CockTails will go directly to the GRAMMY Foundation to help support its GRAMMY Signature Schools Community Award program.
The GRAMMY Foundation was established in 1989 to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through programs and activities that engage the music industry and cultural community as well as the general public. The GRAMMY Foundation influences the lives of young people by opening the windows of opportunity that music can provide for their futures, while recognizing excellence in music education through cash awards for schools across the country with the GRAMMY Signature Schools Community Award program.
“Since learning to play the guitar at a young age, I’ve considered music to be an integral part of who I am,” said Adam Steck, RockTellz & CockTails producer and CEO of SPI Entertainment. “Music provides a lifetime of happiness and I’m ecstatic to partner with such an amazing organization as the GRAMMY Foundation to give the gift of music to so many deserving young adults.”
“We are excited to partner with the GRAMMY Foundation and RockTellz & CockTails to bring additional music education programs to our local schools,” said Jason Gastwirth, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Entertainment, Caesars Entertainment. “We are proud to help support and encourage the future entertainers who may one day also bring their talents to the showrooms at Caesars Entertainment’s resorts.”
A high-energy live show comprised of a full-on rock concert, hit songs and intimate, personal stories of the highs and the lows of rock ‘n roll’s most celebrated and fascinating stars. Grammy Award winner Meat Loaf is the debut headliner and will take audiences on a once-in-a-lifetime journey through his 47-year music, stage and film career in this over-the-top production show.
