Bassist Michael Ellis has left SIN CITY SINNERS, a Las Vegas-based group of prominent musicians who perform self-penned originals and rock and roll covers. The remaining members of the group state, "Michael has played with the band for the last two years and we wish him well in his future endeavors. Scotty Griffin of L.A. GUNS will be on bass for all listed upcoming dates."
SIN CITY SINNERS features in its ranks Todd Kerns (SLASH, AGE OF ELECTRIC), Brent Muscat (FASTER PUSSYCAT) and Rob Cournoyer (RAGING SLAB). The band released its third album, "A Sinners' Christmas" late last year. The CD featured guest appearances by Frank Dimino (ANGEL), Jizzy Pearl (L.A. GUNS, RATT, LOVE/HATE), George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB, SOULS OF WE), Slim Jim Phantom (HEADCAT, THE STRAY CATS), Louie Merlino (BEGGARS & THIEVES), Jimmy Crespo (AEROSMITH), Pete Loran (TRIXTER), Ron Keel (KEEL) and Sammy Serious (THE ZEROS). It was recorded, mixed and mastered at Hit Track Studios in Las Vegas and produced by Brent Muscat and Tom Parham, and executive-produced by Jason Green.
In 2010, SIN CITY SINNERS released two CDs of original music, "Exile on Fremont Street" and the all-acoustic "Broken Record". The SINNERS' music video, "Goin' To Vegas", received the 32nd annual Telly Award and the track "Numb" was nominated for an AVN award for "Best Original Song".
