UPCOMING EVENTS

FRI, 05/27 - SAT, 05/28
Joe Bonamassa performing at the Casino Ballroom

“They're calling him the future of blues, but they're wrong - Joe Bonamassa is the present; so fresh and of his time that he almost defines it." - Classic Rock Magazine
“Bonamassa is the Barometer of just how far a Blues Rock Artist can go.” - Get Ready To Rock
Hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Joe Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.

This one-night-only engagement is in support of Bonamassa’s two most recent projects: live CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray Set Live At Radio City Music Hall, recorded and filmed at New York’s most iconic and hallowed stage, and his first all original studio album, last year’s highly acclaimed Different Shades Of Blue which debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Top 200 and was Joe’s highest charting album, first top 10, and biggest sales week in his career.

Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Anton Fig (drums), Michael Rhodes (bass), Reese Wynans (piano, Hammond organ), Lee Thornburg (trumpet, horn arrangements), Paulie Cerra (saxophone), and background singers to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.

As Joe Bonamassa enters his 26th year as a professional musician, he continues to blaze a remarkably versatile artistic trail, and amass an authentic, innovative and soulful body of work. Bonamassa's career began onstage opening for B.B. King in 1989, when he was only 12 years old. Today, he is hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, and is an ever-evolving singer-songwriter who has released 17 solo albums in the last 15 years, all on his own label, J&R Adventures. He founded and oversees the non-profit Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation to promote the heritage of the blues to the next generation, fund music scholarships, and supplement the loss of music education in public schools. In 2013, Bonamassa earned his first GRAMMY  nomination for Best Blues Album and in 2015 his fourteenth #1 Billboard Blues Album (more than any other artist) with the release of Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks. 2014’s new studio album Different Shades Of Blue debuted at #8 on Billboard's Top 200 and was his highest charting album, first top 10, and biggest sales week ever. In January 2016, he will complete another huge accomplishment when he headlines two shows at New York City's legendary Carnegie Hall with an All-Acoustic Set.

Open Auditions for the 2016 Talent Competition

1pm-4pm at the Seashell Stage

For the first time, we are hosting Open Auditions for our Talent Show, which is held in August. In the past the only way to audition was to send in a CD with your audio. That is still an option (download the talent competition application here) but if you'd like to come to the Open Auditions on May 29 from 1-4 p.m., please consider singing your heart out for us and the audience at the Seashell stage. The winners of the talent competition (held August 26-28, 2016) will win $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $300 for third place in both categories (juniors, for those under 18 and seniors, for those over 18). This should be a fun day of vocal talent on the Seashell Stage.


SUN, 05/29 - SAT, 06/18
