See Jefferson Starship in Concert
Even with so many shows at Toronto casinos these days, one that truly stands out in the schedule is the inimitable Jefferson Starship, which is making a stop at the Casino Rama on Jan. 17th for the 40th Light Year Anniversary tour. While celebrating 40 years as a band is a rare accomplishment, it's clear from recent performances in the region that this is one band that's still got its musical chops. The impressive and high energy performance will delight longtime fans and impress younger audience members, some of whom may not have been born when the band first performed together.
Fans may remember the band through its heyday in the seventies and eighties with songs such as “Jane”, “Miracles” and “Count On Me.” The revitalized Jefferson Starship in concert rocks through these and other hits and favorites with a songbook that was developed over forty years. Band members can also draw on their extensive catalogue from its Jefferson Airplane and Starship days, as those bands either preceded the formation of Jefferson Starship or carried on the tradition as members of the band changed. With the Jefferson Starship, fans don't have to live on memories. The band is creating new fans every time it plays another date on its tour.
Toronto Casino Entertainment
As the biggest city in Ontario, Toronto has always been a hub for entertainment of all sorts. But even with all of the competition, the high class hotel casinos throughout the city, including the Fallsview Resort Casino and, of course, Casino Rama, have managed to book some of the most desirable touring acts in the business. Not surprisingly, both the Fallsview Casino and Casino Rama have some of the best facilities available, allowing acts to stage major performances that would be impossible in night clubs. And by attracting classic acts such as Jefferson Starship, Casino Rama gives people a reason to stay at the hotel besides the obvious lure of high quality casino action. It also gives Toronto residents a reason to keep up with what's going on at the casino even if they are not looking to play casino games. Casino Rama provides a healthy mix of card tournaments, slots and table games of all types, and first rate entertainment. There is also a full spa at the hotel and outstanding dining facilities. All in all, visitors get more than casino games and concerts. They get full service luxury accommodations.
Performances at Toronto Casinos
While Jefferson Starshio is a standout on the schedule, there are many other major acts that have scheduled performances at Toronto casinos, including classic rock bands such as ZZ Top, Foreigner, and Loverboy, soft rock titans such as Air Supply and Michael Bolton, and even comedy acts such as Cheech and Chong. In addition, fans of the Pointer Sisters who live in Toronto or travel to the city will get to see the band live in March, as well as Smokey Robinson and the Beach Boys.
Concerts at the hotel casinos are particularly appealing because of the intimacy between the performers and the audience. Although the halls are built to seat more than a thousand people, the audience is closer to the performers than in other types of facilities. This type of intimacy is particularly well-suited for the types of bands that are typically booked. Fans of some of the acts might have waited many years for a chance to see their favorite bands perform. Being there up close and personal makes all the difference in the level of enjoyment they get. But tickets typically sell out well in advance of the shows, so those who want to ensure their place should book without delay.
