On my Vegas trips I meet the good, bad and the ugly of the Sin City and being the realist I am, it doesn’t take much for me to know the difference. One of the most positive and genuine gentlemen, I have been honored to meet is Mark Shunock. He is the lead singer as “Lonny” in Rock of Ages that has recently moved to the Rio. Mark is an amazing actor and singer but he gives back to his second home like no other. Three years ago Mark with the help of other local acts started “Monday’s Dark“. It’s a once a month charity event that specializes in themes from “South Park”, “Anchorman”, Up North-Canadian (Mark is Canadian) Songs, to other movie titles. The themes and their associated songs are performed from various Headlining acts to a live audience.
“Mondays Dark” takes place inside Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. There is always a silent auction with amazing finds and tons of great drink specials. The going rate is $20 a person unless you fancy a VIP table and bottle service. The charity this month was for Clark County Injured Police Officer’s Fund.
