For those who attended Rob Thomas‘ three shows at Borgata’s Music Box over the weekend, they got to see the musician stripped down to the basics. Nothing but two guitars and occasionally a piano accompanied the record breaking singer/songwriter during his lengthy sets. The intimate shows demonstrated just how skillful of an artist Thomas is and added a very soulful touch to many of his popular pop hits.
Most know Thomas from his stint as Matchbox Twenty’s frontman, but as the concerts demonstrated, there’s a lot more behind the rock star and his hit ballads. It’s clear that Thomas likes to contextualize his music, and that’s exactly what he did throughout the evening. For example, he explained that the hit “3 A.M.” is about his mother who was diagnosed with cancer when Thomas was just twelve years old. He wrote that number when he was in his early teens.
Rob Thomas, the Grammy award-winning frontman and composer for Matchbox Twenty, will be showing off his personal side this January at Borgata’s Music Box. The celebrated performer plays three intimate shows on January 13 through 15, which will feature his signature solo vocals and style that fans have come to know and love.
Since first bursting onto the punk scene in the 1970’s, Elvis Costello has been making music for nearly 50 years. That may seem like simple fact, but it took on a special relevance for the large crowd that saw Costello play Saturday at the Borgata Event Center.
Recently, Costello, now 62, has been drawing on a song catalog that has gained him distinction as one of the best songwriters of the last 50 years for a series of solo dates he dubbed a “Detour.” In that vein, Costello used his Borgata Event Center appearance to launch a two-week set of dates with his band the Imposters dubbed “The Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers Tour,” highlighting his 1982 album Imperial Bedroom.
For an enthusiastic Borgata crowd, it was chance to see Costello’s emotional and deepest songwriting at his best, interspersed with just enough go-to hits to keep the crowd singing along.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a good witch or a bad one: the East Coast’s premiere LGBT resort destination has plenty of tricks and treats for your Halloween celebration.

Jose Feliciano, who will play the Borgata Music Box December 17, has had a long and varied career and is widely considered the first Latin artist to make the crossover to the English music market. He’s also one of the greatest pop guitarists of all time, being called “the Picasso of his realm.”
He’s been awarded more than 45 Gold and Platinum records and has won 19 Grammy nominations, earning nine Grammy Awards, including the “LARAS Award for Lifetime Achievement.
And yet, when December rolls around, Jose Feliciano becomes synonymous with one simple phrase “Feliz Navidad.” His 1970 bilingual Christmas tune has become as much a part of the holidays as “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” or “Silent Night.”
For music fans of a certain era, popular music was once dominated by one instrument above all others – the electric guitar. Sure, disco wasn’t that far removed from today’s EDM, and pop singers are always with us just like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber are today.
But for these fans, music – real rock and roll music – comes from an electric guitar – not to mention blues and honky-tonk country music.
So it was with some nostalgia that several thousand old-school fans packed the Borgata Event Center Saturday to see two of the electric guitars most established and influential masters take the stage as blues legend Buddy Guy and rock legend Jeff Beck performed a double bill. Either one could have performed as a solo headliner, but to have both on the same bill resulted in about 2-and-a-half hours of guitar bliss – not bad for two septuagenarians.
The show started with an hour-long set by Guy who was appearing one week shy of his eightieth birthday. Considering that Guy began his career in the late 50’s, that’s a lot of shows under his belt.
