“A” list talent at the Skagit
By Kristine Fields
The Skagit Valley Casino Resort, located in Bow, WA, has got the fun going on! Not only do they have great karaoke on Thursday nights from 8pm-Midnight, they also have amazing concerts. A lot of folks still haven’t heard, but The Skagit has one of the most intimate concert venues in Washington State, and their ticket prices are excellent. If you use your rewards club card, the prices get even better. Buy at The Skagit, and you’ll pay no service fees.
You’ll find The Skagit located off if I-5 at exit #236, just ten minutes North of Mount Vernon.
Coming in March on the 16th and 17th is Diamond Rio. Grammy winning Diamond Rio, one of my all time favorite country bands, has won six-time vocal group of the year. It’s no wonder with their perfect harmonies and super country hits like “I Believe” and “Meet in the Middle”, along with my most favorite “Beautiful Mess.” It is highly recommended to grab your tickets as they’re going fast!
April features “Barbra and Frank, the Concert that Never Was”. This is a tribute concert that pays sincere appreciate for both Frank Sinatra and the amazing Barbra Streisand.
In May, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Leon Russell returns, and in June you can enjoy Paul Revere & The Raiders, do you remember the song “Cherokee People”…yeah, those guys!
Are you a big fan of comedy? Jim Breur of Saturday Night Live fame joins The Skagit for some live comedy action July 20th and 21st.
Country fans will enjoy John Anderson, Grammy nominee and CMA Horizon Winner August 17th and 18th. “Seminole Wind” and “Straight Tequila Night”, two of my favorite John Anderson tunes.
And just announced, The Presidents of the United States of America will be performing in the Pacific Showroom at The Skagit on October 12th and 13th! “Lump”, “Peaches” and “Kitty”, three of their best tunes, to spark your memory if you weren’t sure, now you are!
Remember, show tickets are on sale now, and we recommend getting in on the action to see all of these great acts in concert. The line up this year is phenomenal, and you can be sure more great acts will be on the bill soon. Contact The Skagit at www.theskagit.com for hotel pricing, and get out there and play! The Skagit features more winners all the time and with so much going on, you’re not going to want to miss out on any of the fun. Watch this publication for upcoming karaoke promotions as well. Congratulations to all of The Skagit karaoke winners last month from the “Sing for Your Supper” promotion too! 2012 holds a whole lotta fun at The Skagit. See you there!
