Move Over Vegas

Last week Playground Poker announced a series of entertainment shows, a first in Playground history.

In a heated tent, adjacent to the main building, originally intended to house extra tables for ongoing Poker tournaments a stage was added and from there the possibilities were endless.

Shirley and I attended the opening performance tonight and were more than delighted by the ambiance and the entertainment at hand. Rod Stewart and Tom Jones tributes by Forever Young and Dave LaFame were as enjoyable an evening you will find in any entertainment venue and members of Playground Poker were admitted free.

Both performers were backed up by a band featuring guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and back-up vocals. The total visual experience was first class all the way with a brilliant light show and lest I forget, two glamorous dancers, milling around the audience. Speaking of audience, NHL superstar, Larry Robinson was introduced from the stage.

Tomorrow night, Night Fever pays tribute to the Bee Gees and once again admission is free with a membership card to Playground Poker. Opening for Night Fever will be the Better Half Acoustic Duo. The duo features John Murray and Sandra Giguere, two singer-songwriters from Hudson, QC.

Throughout the rest of October, the stage will feature tributes to some of the biggest names in music: Eagles, Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, Elton John and a tribute to the British Invasion with the Hi-Fins.

If the upcoming shows are as well produced as tonight’s, and I have no reason to think they won’t, It’s a win/win for Playground Poker and its’ members.
