Festival Park, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s new outdoor venue, has had an amazing summer. And a versatile one as well as we’ve staged rock concerts, techno dance shows, industry parties and some great country music artists at our new party venue.
So there’s really no reason to stop the magic at Festival Park just because the calendar says it’s fall. And that means we’re having another great country show—with help from our friends at Cat Country 103.7—on September 26 with The Band Perry. Also appearing is country star Brett Eldredge.
One of the brightest young bands on the country circuit, Grammy winning The Band Perry—comprised of siblings Kimberly Perry (lead vocals, guitar, piano), Reid Perry (bass guitar, background vocals) and Neil Perry (mandolin, drums, accordion, background vocals)—burst onto the scene in 2010 with their self-titled debut album that contained the No. 1 country hit “If I Die Young.”
They scored two more No. 1 songs on their second album Pioneer with “Better Dig Two” and “DONE.”, plus the Top 10 hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw.”
And as always, Borgata’s timing is impeccable as the group just dropped their first single”Live Forever” off their upcoming third album.
If the band’s track record is any indication, the song should be high on the charts by the time they perform at Festival Park.
“‘Live Forever’ is the best first look into our new album,” Kimberly Perry recently told Radio.com. “It emotionally sums up everything we’ve been feeling creating this new collection of songs – empowered and electrified.”
“Every time I hear the chorus of ‘Live Forever,’ I can’t help but put my hands up in the air,” said Reid Perry. “It’s one of those songs that, after listening to it, makes you feel like you can conquer the world.”
“I can’t wait for people to hear and learn the words to ‘Live Forever,’” said Neil Perry. “It’s such an anthemic song, and I know it’s going to be a huge sing-a-long moment for us with the fans at our shows!”
As you might expect, the band has been touring all summer, adding the Festival Park show to an already crowded tour schedule. That could put a lot of strain on a band, but with The Band Perry, well, it’s all in the family.
“We live together,” said Neil Perry in a recent interview. “We make decisions together. It’s a family business. Every idea truly is what’s best for the band. We operate as a democracy. We’ll talk it out.”
“What makes it special,” he said. “Is because we’ve all grown up together. Our accents all sound the same. Our three-part harmonies meld together. On our third album, more vocals are hook-based.”
And now they’re about to become part of the Borgata family and take Festival Park into a new season—Jersey shore vets know September has the nicest weather of the year in Atlantic City.
And besides, we never let summer stop here at Borgata.
