By Sandy Zimmerman (Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman on the Red Carpet and during the show.) “Raiding the Rock Vault”, at the Tropicana Hotel, brings the history of rock to appreciative audiences. “Raiding” features the rock eras with their mega- video screen and a cast of band members who originally appeared in some of the most famous rock groups in America. We watch as the eras roll by from the 60’s to the 80’s with most of the songs that the fans love. The videos make the eras and songs come alive with actual footage of these performances. This high energy show covers most of rock music’s highlights and runs two hours. Raiding the Rock Vault’s grand opening party was held in the Tropicana’s lounge.
