The Sound of Philadelphia Comes to Borgata Jan. 31

The Sound of PhiladelphiaWe in Atlantic City love Philadelphia.

Oh, sure, on the Boardwalk we don’t put cheese whiz on our cheesesteaks—you know, in favor of actual cheese—but that’s just a minor regional thing between close cousins. Atlantic City is Philadelphia’s beach and we share everything from a love of the Philadelphia Eagles to a penchant for funnel cake on the boards.

And then there’s the music, from the old “American Bandstand” days to the great jazz of the City of Brotherly Love.

And who can forget Philadelphia Soul? No, not the arena football team but the great soul music of Philadelphia that came out of the 70s?

Whether you called it Philadelphia Soul, the Philadelphia Sound or just Sweet Philly, Philadelphia introduced a style of soul music that swept the country and was characterized by funk influences and lush instrumental arrangements. The sound is seen as laying the foundations for disco, quiet storm and smooth jazz.

And three of the best examples of this sound are coming to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at the Borgata Event Center January 31 with the show The Sound of Philadelphia. On the bill are the O’Jays, Russell Thompkins Jr. & The New Stylistics and The Delfonics.

Enter the Wish List Sweepstakes on Borgata’s Facebook Page

wishlist-615x615Did you ever think about the simple concept of the wish? You want something so you wish for it. No big deal right?

Wrong. The whole concept of the wish has dominated literature, fairy tales and folklore since the first caveman wished for a sharper rock to cut his mammoth steak.

We make wishes by throwing coins into wells and fountains or by blowing out birthday candles. We make a wish when we see a shooting star, or just the first star of the night. In fiction we’ve dreamed up genies to give out three wishes or a host of magical items to wish upon.

And some of us just out muscled some poor family member to snap the big end of the Thanksgiving turkey’s wishbone.

Well, we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa love wishes too. So much, in fact, that we’ve created the Wish List Sweepstakes on our Borgata Facebook Page.

Each week we’ll give you, our Facebook friends, the chance to choose between three different prizes in the Wish List Sweepstakes. It’s sort of a twist on the three wishes as voter’s choose from three prizes on the wish list.

Tiesto at Borgata Event Center December 28

TiestoSometimes a DJ gets big—so big that a simple club can’t hold him. And that’s pretty much why Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will present Tiesto in the Borgata Event Center on December 28.

The Dutch spinner and record producer needs the biggest room he can find. After all, the guy once opened an Olympics.

You may know him as DJ Tiesto or by his given name of Tijis Michiel Verwest or any of a bunch of other aliases. Now, he’s simply Tiesto, with a string of hits and appearances that have dominated the electronic dance music scene for more than 15 years.

In fact, Tiesto is more than a DJ and record producer. He’s his own brand. Just check out his resume—a Grammy nomination, numerous MTV awards, and performing at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Tiesto also has a globally syndicated Club Life Radio Show and his Club Life Podcast (#1 music podcast on iTunes globally) and has worked with superstars such as Kanye West, Coldplay, Gotye, Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Goldfrapp and many more.

Tiesto comes to Borgata with a new album A Town Called Paradise, out and with a tour—currently in Australia—that stops only three times in the U.S.  Borgata is Tiesto’s only East Coast stop.

And for Tiesto, it’s all about the live performance.

Flintstones Slot Debuts at Borgata

Flinstones Slot MachineYou probably think you live in the greatest Hi-Tech age of all time, what with the smartphones and cars that can find any address in the world.

But really, do you think it beats taking a shower as a Wooly Mammoth sprays water on you–from its trunk–or having a Dictaphone that’s pretty much just a really smart talking bird?

How about disc brakes? Why, when you can just use your feet? Commercial air travel? You haven’t lived until you’ve flown on a giant pterodactyl (complete with flight attendants).

Now that tech–Stone Age Tech.

We, of course, are talking about life in that crazy town of Bedrock with the lovable Flintstones clan, which will now be a regular on Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s casino floor thanks to a new slot machine from WMS Games.

The Flinstones—immortalized in breakfast cereal and vitamins—was the most successful animated prime-time series ever before The Simpsons began its 88-year run. It ran from 1960 to 1966 and then in reruns pretty much until now. Kind of a prehistoric “The Honeymooners,” it gave us the catch phrase Yaba Daba Doo, a 1994 film and a pretty great version of “Bedrock Twitch” from the B-52s.

And now, it’s bringing you jackpots. The sights, sounds, and of course all of your favorite characters from THE FLINTSTONES television series make their debut on the Gamefield xD cabinet in this fresh take on the prehistoric wheel.
