the music box
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.

Labor Day is upon us and that means we’re all gearing up for the fall season after another long, luxurious summer in Atlantic City at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. That’s assuming, of course, you managed to get away this summer and enjoy a little down time.
Autumn is the season when we all seem to reboot. It’s back to school, back to work, back to the daily grind. Sure, there’s some good stuff like football season, new TV shows, fall foliage … but it also means shorter days, leaves to rake, driving the kids to soccer practice and an ever-shrinking amount of time for holiday shopping.
You know, just thinking about it makes you want to plan another getaway … a fall escape … a fall escape to Borgata. We are, after all, the getaway specialists and we’ll let you in on a little secret – autumn is a beautiful time of year in Atlantic City and along the Jersey Shore.

The actress, best known for her stint in the insanely popular Fox television hit Glee, took to the Borgata Music Box stage on Saturday evening, along with a bunch of her friends in harmony, to perform her touring set aptly titled See Jane Sing.

A shocking number of the audience members at Borgata’s Music Box raised their hands after one of the evening’s queens asked this question at Saturday’s America’s Drag Stars performance. It was the second in a series of all-star drag shows that OUT at Borgata presented, lead and curated by New York’s own Sherry Vine, featuring some of the hottest drag talent around. In short: if it was your first drag experience, you got a good taste of what to expect from a show.
