KANSAS is returning to Borgata on Friday March 9 at The Event Center, and with that comes decades of touring and performing experience. Guitarist Richard Williams should know: he’s been with the band for over 40 years, and has seen how KANSAS has maintained their own musical identity through changing times. We had a chance to chat with Williams before he and the rest of the band take Atlantic City by storm.
Mary J. Blige wants everyone to know where she’s come from…and where she’s gone. The 47 year-old queen of hip hop soul took to the Event Center stage for two shows on February 16 and 17 with her Strength of a Woman tour, and even though her name has been in the spotlight as of late for her Academy Award nominated performance in Mudbound, she reminded everyone that her music has been bringing people to the dance floor since the 90’s.
You may know superstar actress and comedienne Tiffany Haddish, coming to Borgata’s The Music Box this March for two sold-out shows, from her role in Girls Trip and her new Showtime comedy special She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood. Or, maybe you laughed along with her during her recent appearances on SNL and The Ellen Show. But, did you know that there’s a special initiative that Haddish holds near and dear to her heart?
The new MGM Springfield is teaming up with Holyoke Community College and Springfield Technical Community College to help people launch a successful career as a table games or poker dealer. The Massachusetts Casino Career Training Institute’s (MCCTI) Gaming School prepare the local community for hiring opportunities at the soon-to-open MGM Springfield, which anticipates hiring over 450 table games dealers, representing nearly 1/3 of the workforce being hired to support the property operations.
Blues Traveler sure has come a long way since forming as a high school garage band in Princeton, New Jersey. The American rock group known for their blues rock, psychedelic rock, folk rock, soul, and Southern rock styles is celebrating their 30th anniversary and Borgata guests are part of the celebration. Blues Traveler will be headed to The Music Box for one night only, February 24 at 9PM, with their 30th Anniversary Tour.
