One of Las Vegas’ most in-demand photographers — and one of the nicest guys I know — is Erik Kabik. In addition to being everywhere in town, shooting red carpets and VIP events for wire photo service RETNA, Erik is also the house photographer for the Hard Rock Hotel, a post he’s earned thanks to years of shooting live music. I’ve been lucky enough to have Erik’s concert imagery accompany multiple features I’ve written for HRH magazine.
To celebrate 20 years of shooting concerts, Erik’s favorite concert photos will be on display at the Mandarin Bar on the 23rd floor of the Mandarin Oriental hotel at CityCenter on Monday, May 17. If you get a chance, stop by the reception from 6 to 8 p.m., where long-time Vegas DJ Shoe will be spinning the tunes while Ty Ku provides complimentary cocktails.
Erik’s subjects on display will include The Grateful Dead, Jay-Z, Kings of Leon, Dave Matthews, Madonna and much more. If you’re a fan of music or photography, I highly recommend checking out his work.
