Tony Orlando at Borgata’s Music Box May 15

tony-orlandoWhen push came to shove, even Geraldo Rivera knew who to turn to when he needed to pack in an audience during the final challenge of “Celebrity Apprentice.”

He went with Tony Orlando.

Because really, who doesn’t love Tony Orlando?

If you were around at all in the 1970s, the mere mention of Orlando’s name starts the tune “Knock Three Times” playing in your head.

Of course, that’s just one of the hits Orlando, now 71, will bring with him to Borgata’s Music Box for a May 15 concert (not to mention one of the great mustaches in entertainment history).

Orlando’s run with two different incarnations of Tony Orlando and Dawn (most famously with Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson) produced a number of hits that have a way of sticking in your head such as “Candida,” “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You).”

From there it was a successful TV run with “The Tony Orlando and Dawn Show” and 70s super-stardom.

Not bad for a former singer who had found a career in the business and producing side of music before being lured back to performing.

Margarita Madness at Gypsy Bar May 2

Margarita MadnessHere’s a quick riddle, appropriate for the fast approaching Cinco de Mayo celebration at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

What do former Zeigfield dancer Marjorie King, ambassador’s daughter Margarita Henkel and Dallas socialite Margarita Sames have in common?

Never heard of them you say? Yet, you may regularly imbibe their namesake every time you have a Margarita.

Yep, all three are said to be the inspiration for the tequila cocktail the

argarita at various times and at various Mexican bars in the late 30s and early 40s.

Even singer Peggy Lee (Peggy being a nickname for Margaret) can stake her claim to one of the many origin stories—this time in Galveston, Texas—that surround this cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice.

And who’s to say who’s right or wrong and which Margarita started it all?

What we do know, is that there’s no better celebration of the Margarita than at Borgata’s Gypsy Bar, where the Savor Borgata Series will offer up Margarita Madness at 4pm Saturday, May 2. For $39, the event features Casamigos Tequila at Borgata’s rock n’ roll Tequila bar where you can mix and mingle while sipping on Margaritas and noshing on small bites.

Wendy Williams at Borgata’s Music Box May 9

Wendy WilliamsChances are, you think you already know a lot about Wendy Williams, one of the most versatile TV and radio personalities to come along in quite a while.

You know her as the host of the nationally syndicated talk show “The Wendy Williams Show.” But that’s an easy one.

You also probably know she was a major radio star for better than 23 years. Again, easy.

You may even know she’s a proud Jersey Girl—make that Jersey Shore girl—from Ocean Township, New Jersey up around Asbury Park (which named a street after her).

And, of course, she’s a television producer, has her own line of wigs, is a romance novelist and author of seven books, has appeared on Broadway, movies and TV shows, was a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars” and is a stand-up comedian.

Hey, we said she was versatile.

Now if you knew all that, congrats, you are a bonafide Wendy Williams fan. But we’re betting that for many of you, that last one—stand-up comedian—caught you off guard.

Well, come to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Music Box Saturday, May 9 and you’ll see what we’re talking about as Williams brings her stage show to Atlantic City.

Williams debuted as a stand-up last year in Las Vegas fulfilling a life-long dream and completing some of the challenge to do something special for her 50th birthday by her show’s producers (Another challenge, driving a monster truck).

Jackpot at Borgata CasinoApril Fool’s Day is one of those great quasi-holidays where we can all have a little bit of fun playing tricks on each other. Which does leave you wondering if Ellie form Linden, New Jersey—our big online winner for the week of March 30 – April 5–wasn’t just a little skeptical when five blue scarabs lined up for her on BogataCasino.com’s Loot”EnKhamun slots this April 1.

After all, that’s a $100,000 jackpot.

Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano at MIXX Friday, April 10

Sunnery James & Ryan MarcianoYou have to wonder sometimes what’s going on in Holland’s dance scene that allows it to keep producing some of the hottest DJs on the music scene.

Case in point, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano who will appear at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s MIXX nightclub tonight, April 10 at 10pm.

As recently as 2008 these two were working retail jobs before they exploded on the dance scene with their funky House and Tribal sound. First the duo conquered their home country and then they took their sound worldwide.

Now their sets are known as one of the best live experiences at clubs around the world, what with their hair flopping and body rockin’ energy that can bring a crowd to a frenzy.

The duo recently reinvented themselves with their “Sexy By Nature” radio show, which features their latest tracks such as “Karausell” and switches between House music and Dutch tribal sounds.

“We just do what we do always,” James tells youredm.com after a recent gig in Miami. “Our sets have very different tracks in them and try to make every style fit, which is what we bring to our production too. Our last track was a little more radio-ready, but now we’re going back to this tribal underground feel, and then the next track is progressive. We look at our sets and we ask ‘What’s missing?’ and then we make it. If you play the same stuff for two hours straight it’s boring.”

No, James and Marciano are never boring. The duo appears with Borgata House DJ Ps1 Friday April 10 at 10pm at MIXX. Advance tickets are $25 and available here.
