Sebastian Maniscalo performing at the Casino Ballroom

In his standup special “Aren't You Embarrassed?”, which debuted on Showtime in November 2014, the sophisticated comedian with the chiseled cheekbones gives us a hilarious reality check of the world we all find ourselves living in. Continuing to bring his witheringly sarcastic and exasperated take on modern behavior and etiquette in his second Showtime special in two years, Sebastian takes on everything from selfies that he calls “lonelies” (“Do you know how alone you have to be to have 838 photos of yourself in your bathroom?”) to online restaurant reviews (“Who’s got the time to write an 18 page essay on asparagus?”) to airport check-ins (“I’m taking out a boot a sock a toothpaste does anyone know what two pounds is?”). The special has already spawned the Twitter hash tag #Aren’tYouEmbarrassed, with thousands of followers donating their take via social media on the absurdities of everyday life in the year 2014.

Turtv Impractical Jokers starring The Tenderloins performing at the Casino Ballroom

The Tenderloins are the creators, executive producers, writers and stars of truTV’s hit television series, Impractical Jokers. About to enter its 5th season, the Impractical Jokers follows the Tenderloins’ four members - Joe Gatto, James Murray, Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano - as they coerce one another into doing public pranks while being filmed by hidden cameras. With each new season, the show continues to take dares to outrageous levels with new over-the-top hijinks. During its 4th season, the series celebrated 100 episodes in the US with a live television event, The Impractical Jokers Live Punishment Special. Hosted by Howie Mandel, the special drew in 3 million viewers with an impressive 150 MM social media impressions.
The troupe have toured steadily nationwide with their “The truTV Impractical Jokers’ ‘Where’s Larry?’ Tour starring the Tenderloins,” live show, which is a mix of stand-up, never-before-seen hidden camera videos, stories and insight. The highly successful tour has crisscrossed the country playing to 2000-8000 capacity theaters including a recent 3-night sold out run at New York’s historic Radio City Music Hall. 
Natives of Staten Island, New York – Sal Vulcano, Joe Gatto, James Murray and Brian Quinn met while attending high school, and later formed The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe in 1999.
After years of performing live improv and sketch comedy shows in theatres, clubs and festivals across the country, The Tenderloins crossed over to the web, garnering millions of views for their Internet sketches. They went on to win the $100,000 grand prize of NBC’s “It’s Your Show,” a sketch comedy competition show, hosted by Carson Daly. A single-camera, scripted sitcom pilot with Spike TV followed, based on the guys’ real lives.
They have also had pilots with A&E, TBS, CMT and VH1, as well as their own independently produced sitcom pilot, which was an official New York Television Festival selection.

311 with Matisyahu perfroming at the Casino Ballroom

311 was formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska by singer/guitarist Nick Hexum, singer S.A. Martinez, guitarist Tim Mahoney, drummer Chad Sexton and bassist P-Nut. The band now resides in Los Angeles, California.

311 mix rock, rap, reggae and funk into their own unique sound. After years of touring, 311 have developed a reputation as one of the most entertaining & dynamic live bands in the U.S.
311 have released eleven studio albums, one live album, one greatest hits album and three dvd's - and have sold over 9 million copies in the U.S. Their last nine albums reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Top 200 Sales Chart...and nine of their singles have reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Alternative Rock Radio Chart (including the # 1 singles Down, Love Song & Don't Tread On Me - along with Amber, All Mixed Up, Come Original, Creatures For Awhile, Hey You and Sunset in July).

In celebration of 25 years as a band, in June 2015, 311 released the 311 ARCHIVE box set - featuring 4 CD's (81 tracks of B-sides, bonus tracks, pre-production recordings and demos from 1992-2014) PLUS a 60 page book of rare photos and memorabilia.

311 are currently writing and recording their 12th studio album for projected release in early 2017. The band’s previous album, STEREOLITHIC, debuted at #6 on the Top 200 Album Chart. 
The band's celebratory live shows & incessant touring schedule have earned them a massive grassroots following nationwide. 311’s annual summer headlining run, Unity Tour, has become one of the most anticipated concerts of the summer. Support acts on previous Unity Tours have included Sublime with Rome, The Offspring, Snoop Dogg, Slightly Stoopid, Cypress Hill, The Roots, Matisyahu and Ziggy Marley. 

Besides their normal tour dates, the band has made a major splash with their special event shows 311 Day & the 311 Caribbean Cruise. Every other year, 311 plays an arena show on March 11th ("311 DAY") - that attracts 311's biggest fans from around the world. Billed as "the ultimate 311 concert experience," the show includes an extended setlist of hits, rarities and covers; backed by state-of-the-art lighting and special effects. 311 Day typically attracts over 10,000 fans (from all 50 U.S. States and 15+ countries) - and March 11th is now considered a holiday to 311 fans around the globe.

The 311 Carribean Cruise has embarked on 4 adventures to date; Jamaica (2015), Bahamas (2013), Bahamas (2012), Turks & Caicos (2011). Look for the next 311 Cruise in 2017. The 5 day adventure aboard a luxury Norwegian Cruise Lines ship sees some 3,000 passionate 311 fans from around the world take to the sea, with 311 playing 3 shows along the way, plus other support bands, DJs and comedians.

The Monkees performing at the Casino Ballroom

The Monkees performing at the Casino Ballroom

When four young men were cast in the television roles of a struggling rock band inspired by The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night, few could have predicted the impact The Monkees would make on music and pop culture at large, an impact that still reverberates 50 years later.
Assembled in Los Angeles in 1965 by Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider for the television series The Monkees, the quartet of Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and the late Davy Jones brought a singular mix of pop, rock, psychedelica, Broadway, and country to their music. The show itself, meanwhile, paid tribute not only to The Beatles, but also to the comedy stylings of The Marx Brothers and Laurel and Hardy as well as the pop-art sensibilities of Warhol and the emerging San Francisco psychedelic scene. 
The Monkees’ first single, “Last Train to Clarksville,” was released in August 1966, hitting number 1 and serving as advance publicity for their series, which debuted on September 12. When the group’s self-titled debut album arrived in stores a month later, it quickly headed for the top spot of the Billboard charts, where it would ultimately sit for 13 of the 78 weeks it remained in the Top 200. (Two decades later, in the midst of a new burst of Monkee-mania, The Monkees popped back onto the charts, bringing the total number of weeks to 102.)
By the time the group’s TV series aired its final new episode on March 25, 1968, the Monkees had seen three further albums top the charts – More of the Monkees, Headquarters, and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones, Ltd., all of which were released in 1967, staggeringly enough – while racking up several more hit singles, with “I’m a Believer,” “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You,” “The Girl I Knew Somewhere,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “Words,” “Daydream Believer,” “Valleri,” and “Tapioca Tundra” all finding their way into the Billboard Top 40.
After the series’ two-season run, the group went on to star in the cult feature film HEAD (co-written by Jack Nicholson) and a TV special (33 1/3 Revolutions per Monkee) while also continuing to record new material, but much as the ‘60s gave way to the ‘70s, the members of the Monkees eventually gave in to their individual musical interests and went their separate ways for awhile. 
In February 1986, after MTV broadcast a marathon of The Monkees, Dolenz, Jones, and Tork reunited for a 20th anniversary tour, with Nesmith joining them onstage for the Los Angeles date of the tour, and in 1996, all four members of the group reunited for a new album (Justus) and TV special (Hey, Hey, It’s the Monkees). 
In the wake of Jones’s death on February 29, 2012, the surviving members of the Monkees reunited and performed a series concerts. The shows were greeted with sell-out response and phenomenal reviews. Now, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork carry on that tradition with a full evening of magic music and multi-media splendor, including clips from their Emmy Award winning series. Their new show features all of the Monkees hits, plus an intimate acoustic set and solo spots for each of the singers. This Evening With The Monkees is sure to please every fan of the band.

The Beach Boys performing at the Casino Ballroom

FRI, 07/08

The Beach Boys performing at the Casino Ballroom

You can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold. But these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact of The Beach Boys. To be sure, this band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.

Happily for us all, The Beach Boys continue to create and perform with the same bold imagination and style that marked their explosive debut over 50 years ago. And now in 2013, their Capitol Records release, Sounds of Summer (RIAA certified triple platinum with over three million in sales and climbing), and it’s companion The Warmth of the Sun marks a resurgence in Beach Boys interest that has again rocked the world.

Even more than the Beatles, The Beach Boys found through their music the key to unfading youth—and they made copies for everyone. To these guys, the beach isn’t just a place where the surf comes to play—it’s where life is renewed and made whole again. 

Captained by Mike Love, The Beach Boys play an astoundingly busy schedule of concerts, averaging 150 shows a year, ranging from sundrenched summer festivals to gala New Year’s celebrations and special events worldwide. In 1974 Mike Love’s concept album Endless Summer ignited a second generation of Beach Boys fans and stirred a tempest that rocked the music world.

Grammy-winning songwriter Bruce Johnston, [Barry Manilow’s “I Write the Songs”], joined The Beach Boys in 1965, replacing Glenn Campbell, who filled-in for Brian Wilson, on vocals/bass, when he retired from touring. Highly regarded as a singer-songwriter, Johnston’s vocal work with such legendary artists as Elton John and Pink Floyd firmly established him among rock’s elite artists. 

Had this remarkable band been less committed to its art and its fans, it could have retired from the field with honor at dozens of points along the way, confident that it had made a lasting contribution to world culture. It could have rested on the success of the epoch-shifting Pet Sounds masterpiece in 1966 . . . or after recording Love’s co-written Golden Globe nominated “Kokomo” in 1988 and seeing it become its best selling single ever . . . or after being inducted that same year into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame . . . or after watching its worldwide album sales blow past l00 million . . . or after winning the NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 [along with The Who, Bob Marley, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr. and Les Paul]. And still, The Beach Boys continue to have fun, fun, fun, with no end in sight. In 2012, The Beach Boys scheduled a 74 concert date limited 50th Anniversary Reunion Tour which was scheduled as a limited run reunion tour and ended in the U.S. July 15 and internationally on Sept 28th in which the original members reunited and released "That's Why God Made the Radio," the album debuted at number 3 on the Billboard charts, their highest chart position in 37 years and an unprecedented milestone. 

The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Jeffrey Foskett, Brian Eichenburger, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. This tour will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.

Badfish A tribute to Sublime performing at the Casino Ballroom

The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime’s music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime’s essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish make their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does!

Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne announces 2016 U.S. summer tour dates, beginning in June thru August with his band.
Accompanying Jackson on the road this summer are longtime band mates Val McCallum (guitar), Mauricio Lewak (Drums), Jeff Young (keyboards), Bob Glaub (bass), Alethea Mills (Vocals) and the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).
“This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs,” says Jackson. “The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz - the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour.”

Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. He was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, and the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2007.
Jackson's career began in the mid-60s in Los Angeles and Orange County folk clubs. Except for a brief period in NYC in the late 1960s, he has always lived in Southern California. His debut album came out on David Geffen's Asylum Records in 1972. Since then, he has released fourteen studio albums and four collections of live performances. His new studio album, Standing In The Breach, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life.
Beyond his music, Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education. He's a co-founder of the groups Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) andNukefree.org.
In 2002, he was the fourth recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, given to artists whose works exemplify the environmental and social values that were essential to the great California-born author. He has received Duke Universitys LEAF award for Lifetime Environmental Achievement in the Fine Arts, and both the Chapin-World Hunger Year and NARM Harry Chapin Humanitarian Awards. In 2004, Jackson was given an honorary Doctorate of Music by Occidental College in Los Angeles, for "a remarkable musical career that has successfully combined an intensely personal artistry with a broader vision of social justice."

Evan Goodrow

Evan Goodrow could be a textbook definition of an indie artist in the new world.
This April 16' marks the arrival of his 13th recording, "Loyalty" with his own Evan Goodrow Band "a cult Boston act that plays by it's own rules", with John Cooke on keys and bass duty and Phil Antoniades handling the percussion.

A unique blend of stubbornness combined with simple disregard for genre music forms has contributed to an entirely unique position: Evan is a jazz guitarist who sings soul music, somehow won the Boston Blues Award (he doesn't sing blues), maintains an ongoing dialogue with his followers (just completed a fan funded marketing program for the new recording on Pledgemusic) and even spends time jamming with Jimmy Buffett in the Caribbean.

Strange? Not considering a performance history with B.B, King, Los Lonely Boys, and Peter Frampton. 
MVY Radio loves them (the EGB has it's own channel) . 
Charles Laquidara of Boston's famous "Big Mattress" says "Loyalty might be their best yet."
