Eric O’Brien

Director of Operations

Eric O’Brien has been in the entertainment industry for most of his life. Started playing in bands when he was twelve tears old in his hometown of Plymouth, Massachusetts and moved up to Boston after high school. There he formed the successful band, Honkeyball, combining elements of heavy metal and hardcore punk with a touch of progressive virtuosity. As their drummer, he did most of the musical arrangements for their songs. The band released three albums and toured extensively throughout the nineties and had songs featured in hit TV shows such as The Shield and Close to Home. Flirted with major record labels a few times but ended up staying with their independent record label, Wonderdrug Records out of Boston.

Upon relocating to Las Vegas in 2011 he has stayed in entertainment but this time he’s not the guy on stage behind a drum kit. His first job was with Eli Roth’s Goretorium, a year-round haunted house attraction located at the heart of the Strip. There he was an actor, stage manager, and scriptwriter. After that, he teamed up with Pete Housley as the showroom manager for the Sin City Theatre and Cabaret Show Lounge at Planet Hollywood. Housley went on to form Admit VIP and took O’Brien along with him for the ride. He now runs the day to day operations in charge of the box office, ticketing, door staff, scheduling, and guest relations.
