The Last Vegas is a Chicago based rock and roll band with members Nate Arling (drums), Adam Arling (guitars), Chad Cherry (lead vocals), John Wator (guitars), and Danny Smash (bass), originating from Rockford Illinois, Detroit, Grand Rapids Michigan, and Chicago.

From that time onward The Last Vegas has toured persistently, landing support for various acts,including Buckcherry, Urge Overkill, Nashville Pussy, the Cynics, and more. Beating out thousands of bands, The Last Vegas was the selected featured 2006 Red Octane “Be a Guitar Hero” contest winner. with their track, “Raw Dog” (The Geomancer) from The Last Vegas CD “Seal the Deal.”
