Golden Nugget Las Vegas February 2016 Entertainment, Gaming Promotions, and Tournaments

FEBRUARY 2016 FEATURED ENTERTAINMENT
 
52 Fridays Concert Series in the Gordie Brown Showroom
Golden Nugget Las Vegas has raised the standard for entertainment in downtown Las Vegas hosting the 52 Fridays Concert Series. The resort presents a diverse lineup of acts, from Grammy award-winning artists and Country Music Hall of Famers to classic rock bands and R&B singers. To purchase tickets, call 866-946-5336 or click here.
 
  • Blood, Sweat and Tears featuring Bo Bice: February 5, 2016 – 8:00pm
Founder Al Kooper conceived Blood, Sweat and Tears as an experiment in expanding the size and scope of the rock band with touches of jazz, blues, classical and folk music. When Kooper was forced out of the band soon after its eclectic debut, Child Is Father to the Man, BS&T became increasingly identified as a “jazz-rock” group, although its music was essentially easy-listening rhythm and blues or rock with the addition of brass. Now, featuring American Idol’s Bo Bice on vocals, Blood, Sweat and Tears is better than ever. Reestablishing themselves as one of the greatest touring acts around, this GRAMMY award-winning group will perform their greatest hits including “You Made Me So Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel” and “Hi-De-Ho.”
  • Christopher Cross: February 12, 2016 – 8:00pm
Singer-songwriter Christopher Cross was by far the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the number one hit, “Sailing.” Christopher Cross’ 1980 self-titled debut album with the lead single “Ride Like the Wind” rocketed to the number two spot, and the massive success of the second single “Sailing” made Cross a superstar. In the wake of two more top twenty hits, “Never Be the Same” and “Say You’ll Be Mine,” he walked off with an unprecedented and record-setting five GRAMMY awards in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year. To date, Cross is the only artist to have won Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist all in the same year. 
  • J.T. Taylor: Voice of Kool & the Gang: February 19, 2016 – 8:00pm
James “J.T.” Taylor, lead singer for Kool & the Gang from 1979 to 1988, presided over the group’s commercial, if not artistic, peak of the early to mid-80s. Although top ten placements were frequent from 1982 through 1987, Taylor left the band for a solo career in 1988, thanks in large part to the band’s success. After signing to Epic Records in 1988, Taylor found success with several hits, including “All I Want Is Forever” and “Long Hot Summer Night.” Most recently, Taylor released a new version of the band’s 1983 song “Joanna,” in 2013.
  • Johnny Rivers: February 26, 2016 – 8:00pm

Renowned rock and roll singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer Johnny Rivers takes the stage for the first time at the Golden Nugget. With 17 songs in the Top 40, more than 25 million records sold in the ’60s and ’70s, and a powerful force in regaining an American foothold in the midst of Beatlemania, Rivers is an award-winning, world-class entertainer. Rivers was raised in Baton Rouge and, after learning to play the guitar from his father, began playing professionally at age 14, when he formed his first band. He went on to bring together the rhythm section that would define the West Coast sound of the ’60s. Don’t miss Rivers perform his top hits including “Baby I Need Your Lovin,” “Secret Agent Man,” and “Memphis.”

RECAP/PHOTOS: Betty Who Performs at Mardi Gras-themed Party at LAX Nightclub – Thursday, Feb. 19

Last night, Thursday, Feb. 19, LAX Nightclub at Luxor Hotel and Casino hosted its Mardi Gras Masquerade party after a fresh renovation! Performers gracefully danced on the platforms next to the iron-clad doors alongside black leather, studded chairs. Draped in avant-garde attire paired largely with teased hair and feathered headdresses, the dancers spent the evening enticing guests to enter the venue.

 

To warm up the crowd, DJ Vtech welcomed club-goers with her electronic mixes of Top 40 hits like Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and Ed Sheeran’s “Don’t.”

 

Just after midnight, Australian singer/songwriter Betty Who and her entourage settled into a plush VIP booth next to the center of the stage. Shortly after 12:30 a.m., she took to the mic to belt out her energetic songs! Donning a gold and black sequin blazer paired with a black crop top and flirty skirt, she performed an energetic five-song set, including her No. 1 Billboard hit, “All of You” before posing for photos with excited fans.

 

The party didn’t stop there as DJ Aybsent Mynded delivered a high-energy set for the festive club-goers keeping the crowd dancing into the early morning hours.

Official Proclamation Begins Carnival Season for New Orleans Mardi Gras

Rex, King of Carnival and the New Orleans Tourism Industry Issue Official Invitation to Mardi Gras

To alert the world that Mardi Gras and the carnival season is upon us, Rex, King of Carnival is issuing his proclamation via the New Orleans tourism industry to the world.

Carnival begins each year on “Twelfth Night,” so the city is delivering the proclamation, created by the Rex organization’s School of Design, to citizens of the planet, beckoning them to attend the 2014 Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

“It is a great honor to announce the city’s most famous event with Rex, King of Carnival,” said Mark Romig, President and CEO of New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, NOTMC. “The Rex 2014 Royal proclamation continues a carnival tradition more than a century old.”

The Rex organization began creating its Royal Invitation in 1872 when a group of young New Orleans leaders decided to issue invitations and a proclamation, inviting all to come to the Crescent City to join in its unique Mardi Gras celebration. In the days before mass media, broadcast, and tourism industries, the beautiful art posters and brochures were distributed in railroad stations, plastered on train cars, posted in centers of commerce, and placed in public buildings around the nation in major U.S. cities.

“We are pleased to build on the tradition of the Rex organization in inviting the world to the ‘Grand Celebration’ of Mardi Gras,” said Stephen Perry, President and CEO of the NOCVB. “It is a great time for visitors to experience the cultures and traditions of New Orleans as the city comes alive with festivity for Carnival Season.”

The 2014 Royal Invitation incorporates artwork from 1886, inviting visitors to “gather, from far and near, to join in the many celebrations and processions which will shortly unfold under the joyful Carnival banner.”

Each year, both the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation and the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau issue an electronic version of the Invitation to the nation and to international destinations, as well as over 60,000 travel trade professionals and tour operators. Both tourism corporations will feature the Royal Invitation on their website homepage.

Rex places great emphasis on this motto and uses it as a basis for all of its policies, activities, and community initiatives, including the work of the Pro Bono Publico Foundation, formed in 2006.
