TALENT

We have seen entertainers such as Louie Armstrong in 1964 (our first big entertainer on stage) and Buck Owen in 1966 rocking the early days. We broke a record for the worlds longest conga line with Miami Sound Machine in 1986, we did “The Twist” with Chubby Checker in 1990, “Riding the Storm Out” with REO Speedwagon in 1993 and singing “Daydream Believer” while the Monkees rocked the stage.
