A Superstar DJ Kaskade is accusing palms Resorts Casino in Las Vegas over breach of contract after it unexpectedly closed its KAOS nightclub in November.
Kaskade, whose real name is Ryan Raddon, has been conducting music performance in the club for just seven months; however, the contract he signed was to expire after 2020. According to Casino.org, Kaskade filed charges against the casino for prematurely canceling the contract.
The casinos claimed the closure was due to ongoing renovations but failed to compensate him for the 37 overlooked performances.
According to Billboard, Kaskade lawyer Alex Fugazzi wants his client to be compensated for the damages on the canceled performance plus pre and post-judgment interest together with legal expenses. Palms club closure came after Red Rock reported $26.8 million net loss in the Q3 report. The loss was linked to employment arrangement at Palms, higher depreciation and amortization relating to the palms redevelopment project and also the onetime charges of the artist performance agreement.
According to Casino.org, Red Rock CEO Frank Fertitta in November said that the nightclub was too expensive to maintain and that the scene was competitive.
“It doesn’t appear that the market has grown enough for the amount of supply, Fertitta said “The cost of entertainment is excessively high, and we just decided to focus on where the fish are.”
Red Rock breach of contract has also been filed by Alyssa Faulstick, a cocktail waitress at the club. Alyssa accused the casino of breaching the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988. The Act requires that employers with more than 60 employees give a 60 days notification of termination. Faulstick claims that she learnt about the job loss in the news.
