The GRAMMY-nominated rapper, actor and television host will launch LAX Nightclub’s revamped 2016 Throwback Thursday lineup, which will feature iconic artists from the ’80s and ’90s every other week in 2016.
“The ’80s and ’90s brought us some of the most instantly recognizable music that will always be timeless and cool,” said Anthony Olheiser, Executive Director of Brand Activation at Luxor. “Throwback Thursday at LAX is designed to celebrate that music with the artists who created it.”
Vanilla Ice skyrocketed to stardom with his chart-topping single, “Ice Ice Baby.” The heartthrob became the face of the 1990s with appearances in memorable films like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze,” and performances as a musical guest on “Saturday Night Live.” In 2009, he began hosting “The Vanilla Ice Project” on DIY Network, which premiered its fifth season in 2015.
Every Thursday at LAX Nightclub, DJs will spin favorite hits from the ’80s and ’90s, with several memorable Throwback performers hosting select nights throughout the year. Guests are encouraged to don their favorite fashion from the era to bring back the ambiance of the unforgettable decades.
LAX Nightclub ushered in 2016 on the eve of the New Year, by revealing state-of-the-art upgrades to its lighting and sound system, a LED feature surrounding the DJ booth, and sleek new design elements. Over the course of 2016, the venue plans to continue an aggressive rejuvenation, with heavy emphasis on the Throwback Thursday programming.
“This is going to be a big year for LAX,” continued Olheiser. “Now that we’ve completed some physical upgrades, we are focusing on fun, accessible and exciting events and performances, all soon to be announced.”
