SAMMY HAGAR: Rum Bash
Sammy Hagar performs at his Beach Bar Rum Bash in Vegas.
Sammy Hagar spent the weekend in Las Vegas, where, on Saturday, he performed at his Beach Bar Rum Bash at Club Vinyl inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Hagar says, "What I love about the Beach Rum parties we've been throwing is that I get a chance to mingle with the fans -- it's kind of like a long, big meet and greet! It's different from when I play a concert and I can't spend time doing toasts and shots and getting our buzz on together. We're learning with you as we go how to throw these parties... Unfortunately, we found out last minute that Nevada state law wouldn't let me mix and serve the drinks so I had to oversee the bartenders making my custom rum concoctions."
In addition to his bar-tending and managerial chores, Hagar also performed with his Wabos.
On Sunday, Hagar attended the Vegas Rocks awards where he was presented with the Voice of Rock award. David Coverdale was given the Lifetime Achievement award and Michael Schenker the Rock Guitar Legend award.
