The 2013 ED’s Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show
August 21, 2013, at the House of Blues, Las Vegas
It’s been dubbed as the “Oscars” of the adult nightclub industry, the crowning event of the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO and an evening worthy of celebration. The Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show—known more frequently as the ED’s Awards—will return for its 16th straight year at the 2013 EXPO at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. This year, the House of Blues, located directly inside Mandalay Bay and boasting a national reputation as one of the nation’s best live music venues, will play host to the show.
The Annual ED’s Awards Show, presented by Anheuser-Busch and slated for August 21 from 8-11 pm, will honor the best-of-the-best in adult nightclubs, club staff and feature entertainment. The show will be hosted by hot up-and-coming comedian Adam Hunter, will feature special guest presenters, a brand new all-female “house” rock band Brazen and command performances by the nominees for ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year Award.

Limited seating, including VIP tables
For the first time ever, VIP seating is available for the ED’s Awards Show. Due to the intimate setting at the House of Blues Las Vegas, the ED’s Awards Show will be limited to only 650 guests. The upstairs portion of the House of Blues will feature theater seating ($69 tickets, if purchased before June 15), while the bottom floor will offer two tiers of VIP tables that are just a few feet away from stage at a cost of $1,500 per table (seating 10 guests) and $1,250 (seating eight guests).

Live rock ‘n’ roll with Brazen
Voted Best Local Live Performers at the Vegas Rocks Music Awards Show 2012, this quintet of power musicians plays an array of some of the coolest classic and modern rock tunes, with an energetic stage performance. Brazen is a Las Vegas fixture, as they’ve played with dozens of legendary rock musicians including Jimmy Page, Cheap Trick, Nancy Wilson, Neil Schon and Pat Travers, to name just a few. As the ED’s “house” band, they’ll be rocking the house throughout the entire show.
Due to popular demand: A shorter show!
In our post-EXPO 2012 survey, many attendees asked for a shorter, tighter Awards Show. And we’re delivering! To make sure that the show remains a slim, trim two-hour presentation (9-11 pm), we’re moving a few of the awards to other events being held during the EXPO (the same way the Oscars hold an awards event prior to the main Oscar presentation).
During the Opening Night “Game Show” Party at the Vegas Hustler Club, the following “staff” awards will be presented: General Manager of the Year, DJ of the Year (a new ED award for 2013) and Club Employee of the Year. And at the Closing Night “Specialty Acts Showcase” Party at Sapphire, the following “feature” awards will be presented: “Feature” Club of the Year, Adult Movie Feature Entertainer of the Year and Miss ExoticDancer.com.
“Rock the House” at the ED’s!
In keeping with our 2013 ED’s Awards “Rock the House” theme, we encourage all Awards Show guests to unleash their inner rock god or goddess by dressing for the occasion. So leave the suit and tie at home—it’s time to rock out!
