Memorial Day weekend is coming up, and to honor active military and veterans, Mario Barth & About Kings will perform a benefit country rock concert at the Hard Rock Live Las Vegas on the Strip on May 27.

Originally from Austria, Mario formed About Kings in 2017. Fronted by Mario's powerful lead vocals and guitar, tattoo artist Bob Tyrell (rhythm guitar), Kevin Ogburn (bass), Alen Brentini (lead guitar and vocals), and Shane Hoskins (drums) make up the band. Their first album, Guardian Angel, passed 1 million plays on Spotify. Their video, "Easy Rider," has over 2 million views on their YouTube channel.

The band recorded its first all-English at Sound Stage Studios and Dark Horse Recording Studios in Nashville. The 14-song album was produced by Academy Award and Grammy Award-nominated music producer, songwriter, and musician Kent Wells.

Mario has been named one of the best tattoo artists globally, creating art and tattooing some of the world's top actors, musicians, artists, and celebrities. He is the owner and chief tattoo artist at Starlight Tattoo, with New Jersey, Las Vegas, and Austria studios. He is also the founder and owner of INTENZE Products, Inc. which manufactures tattoo ink. Mario's bandmate and guitarist Bob is also a talented tattoo artist.
