“We want to send 2012 out on a high note and this lineup will do that by showcasing the ultimate feel-good music,” says Mark Massimino, director of entertainment for Riviera Casino & Hotel. “We’ll kick off the weekend with The Boogie Knights on Dec. 29, who’s putting on a non-stop party with three 50-minute sets of the greatest disco songs of all time. Having MC Hammer and Tone Loc the following night just continues the dance party. Dust off your favorite Disco-era clothing and your Hammer pants and join us for a weekend that is not to be missed.”
