Where We Play

Angel of the Winds Casino A Monday Gig? The band has played concerts and private events, but it's hard to book for "regular" gigs. Each band member plays in a at least two other bands (or five), and several are local A-listers who are always in demand (click the "Bios" link and see). Musicians are notoriously available around lunchtime on Mondays, so it has been a great gig for this hard-bookin' band. Fun fact: The Fat Fridays have not played on a Friday since 2016! The On the Rocks Lounge (Formerly the Watershed Lounge) It's a comfortable place to listen, dine, and dance, and it is also a fully pro venue, with a full time sound crew on staff, a kickass PA system, pro stage lighting, a giant dance floor, and excellent service. And it's not in the middle of machines; the casino is over there ... not in your face, but readily available between sets. The Monday 55+ Club a.k.a. Power Blunch
(When we're there, anyway) The lounge has variable late-night entertainment offerings, on weekends; lately (Aug 2018) it's been DJs. But they've kept live music or comedy (or football) on Wednesday and Thursday nights, and ... The Monday lunchtime 55+ Club has become a unique and reliable local venue. For over 6 years now, the casino has presented four hours of live dance music every Monday between 11am and 3pm. Whenever we play there, we call it the Monday Power Blunch. However, just because they call it the "55+ Club" doesn't mean you have to be 55 to enjoy lunch with live music and maybe dance off a few fries before you leave. You only have to be 55 (and get a free player's club card) to enter the cash prize drawings. Wait, Cash Prizes? We play a gig that literally gives away cash! (And pays the band pretty well, too, thanks!) They get a very nice regular crowd, but the only reason the place isn't packed to the rafters every week with AARP-eligible folks (like us) harvesting free cash, is that it happens from 11am to 3pm on Mondays. They give away a total of $500 in cash prizes every Monday, with a drawing at the top of every hour. Four chances to win, and really, not that many people actually enter the drawings, and anyway, your chances are 100% better than anything else in the building, because it's free! And, of course, there's live music ... You just need to get a free players card ("The Experience Club"), then sign in for the cash drawings when you arrive. Food & Gas, too! With a player's card you can get $5 off meals, and a few cents per gallon off at their gas pumps. None of this requires any gambling. 
But gambling is always available. You should take a long lunch some Monday ... preferably when we're there!
