    When you browse through threads you see some of the other host contacts dont answer emails, return calls, follow up, etc... Lots of complaints......


    Wasnt JROC from the Pauly D show listed as a host??? Yikes, I wouldnt want that dude arranging my night.


    I'm sure other members will chime in and agree with me.
    Lol, JRoc was the VIP Services Manager (Head of all the hosts) for Palms if I remember right. I used to go through him for everything Vegas like a year or 2 ago. I haven't seen the show, but I can only imagine based on how you said it. He's currently corporate with SBE I believe (Anthony would know better).
    Just a heads up... whenever you see "VIP Services Manager" on someones card or job description, it simply means HOST. Not a manager in any way. Managers are "Host Manager" or "Director of ________" The title VIP Services Manager started at Drais, and carried over to XS and Tryst when they were affiliated. When i worked for XS we had a meeting about how the hotel was pissed that all of our cards said "Manager" on them so they made us change our title. Some clubs still use VIP Services Manager for all of their hosts.

    As for JRoc he was the Director of Special Events at Palms when he left, and is currently doing his thing with MTV right now. He will be back at SBE when he is done, but he is super busy right now and traveling a lot!

    I appreciate the shout out to be on the main page, and obviously would love to be, but like very one else on that list, I'm waiting my turn in line lol.

              id say if hes too busy to take care of the members on here (and it sounds like he is with the tv show(?) and traveling), then that contact needs to change

                Definitely needs to be changed. I've texted and e-mailed JRoc about 5 or 6 times over the last year and he hasn't responded once.

                  Exactly why Anthony should be listed. I don't think your gonna find anyone with a better response time.

                      Anthony has answered a bunch already but this would definitely be an interesting interview/article on the main site. "A Day in the life of a VIP Host - Jack Colton sits down with so and so"

                        There should be a link on the main page to this topic as a featured forum topic.

                          We have been very lucky to have hosts that are in touch and in tune with the members on the forums. Some come and go but the love for them is always there.

                            Id be down to conduct an interview afterall I started this thread, It would be cool to get low down details on hosts from several different clubs as well as some of the other nightlife positions, because it isn't really a topic you can do a random google search on and come up with an answer.
