Welderup:  "Welder Up is not your average car customization shop. Steve Darnell is the mastermind behind the madness created at Welder Up. Las Vegas, NV is the perfect location to inspire him to design the wildest rat rods known to man. The vehicles that leave our shop will blow your mind and exceed your expectations. Just give Steve a theme for your build and you will be amazed by his imagination, the creative materials, and details that bring your vision to life. Steve also has a passion for producing short films, music videos, and creative man-interior designs. Most recently, he created the set design, costumes, props, and vehicles featured in the Five Finger Death Punch "House of the Rising Sun" music video. This opportunity provided him the perfect stage to put his talents to good use and show that his creativity has no boundaries."

SIREN STRINGS:

It all began when two violinists, Marlo Zemartis, Debra Yavitz, and a cellist, Corinne Hymel,
decided to wield their musical talents and expertise to form a non-traditional quartet. They took
their inspiration from Sirens, mythical sea creatures whose legendary music was a source of
enchantment to sea travelers from miles around.
By combining their love of music and their diverse musical backgrounds, Siren Strings are
continually evolving their sound and music specialty. The quartet plays original arrangements
as well as original compositions written by the musicians themselves. Their repertoire ranges
from private music requests at weddings to Top 40 hits they have adapted specially for Siren
Strings.
The members of the Sirens are all current UNLV Music Majors or Alumni on the road to
becoming music professionals and teachers.
Since Starting, they have made many public appearances in the Las Vegas area as well as
California.
