Hollywood Vampires at Borgata July 3

Hollywood VampiresWhen it comes to classic rock, with all due respect to modern music artists, some things are just too cool to ever be equaled.

Yeah, yeah, the kids are all into their Katy Perry, their Niki Minaj, their Kanye, their Drake.

Whatever.

You know what’s cool? Alice Cooper is cool singing Doors’ songs with Johnny Depp and Joe Perry on guitar. Yes, actor Johnny Depp. Yes, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.

You know what’s cooler? That such a group exists and has the name Hollywood Vampires.

You know what’s cooler still? That the group grew out of a drinking club established by Cooper in Los Angeles on the Sunset Strip in 1969 for the rockers passing through the L.A. music scene. The Hollywood Vampires club was formed in an upstairs bar at the Rainbow Bar & Grill.

Cooper and Depp decided that they wanted to see the Hollywood Vampires rise from the dead (get it) and launched a band dedicated to resurrecting the music of so many singers and groups of the era who have, well, passed on to the great rock band graveyard.

And coolest of all? They’re playing Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on July 4th weekend with an appearance Sunday, July 3.

Intrigued? Hey, the coolness goes on.

The Great American Variety Show at Borgata’s Music Box Thursdays

Great American Variety ShowThere was a time in entertainment when variety was king.

A variety show wasn’t exactly a concert, or a comedy show, or an acrobatic show or any one thing in particular kind of show. It was all of the above and more.

From Vaudeville to the great variety shows of early American television such as the “Ed Sullivan Show,” variety shows ruled from the late 1800s to the mid-20th century.

The secret to these shows was that the audience never knew what was coming next. A singer could be followed by a plate spinner. The plate spinner might be followed by an animal act and then a comic. Next up was a troupe of acrobats followed by a magician.

In the end, the name spoke for itself – Variety.

And we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are bringing them back with The Great American Variety Show playing Thursdays at Borgata’s Music Box now through May 5.

For our variety show, we’ve got an “America’s Got Talent” finalist in Clint Carvalho and his parrot (Yes, it’s a parrot act), acrobats, local illusionist Michael Grasso (another “America’s Got Talent” veteran), knife throwers, comedy and a roller skate thrill act (That’s right, roller skates).

Check out this lineup:

REVIEW: Diana Ross Proves Why She’s Still The Supreme

D RossDiana Ross had one goal during her sold-out Friday evening concert at Borgata‘s Event Center: to slay.

And slay she did. The 72-year-old performer donned more gowns than one would find during an episode of Say Yes to the Dress during her 75 minute set and demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that she’s still got it in spades.
