The never-ending Spring Break-style party epitomized in the infamous MTV reality show Jersey Shore feels like a perfect fit for a Las Vegas pool club—especially the iconic Rehab bash at the Hard Rock Hotel. It’s no wonder then that Pauly DelVecchio (aka DJ Pauly D), Shore’s best-known alum, has found a comfy home in Vegas and at Rehab.
“Rehab is legendary. If you come to Las Vegas, you have to hit up Rehab,” Pauly told Las Vegas Magazine this summer. He plays his last gig of the season there this weekend. “You can see the energy and feel it when you’re out there. I get such good feedback from the crowds at Rehab, more than anywhere else around the world—that’s why I love DJing here. It’s gonna be the party of their life.”
A Las Vegas resident for almost four years now, Pauly is constantly bouncing between coasts to perform, and recently starred in another reality show, Famously Single, on which he hooked up with his girlfriend, singer Aubrey O’Day. But he was a DJ before he was a TV personality. “Before I was famous I was opening up for myself, closing for myself, carrying my own equipment. Now, they put me smack in during the power two-hour set, which I go over all the time. Sometimes you have to rip me off the turntables, because I love it so much.”
Pauly D refuses to let the party stop, another reason why he belongs at Rehab. Pauly D at Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel, August 21.
