Okay, Boomers, time for more fun. It’s getting a bit too hot for energetic activities, but there’s plenty of more sedate goings on this weekend just right for mature desert audiences.
How about starting the weekend with some cool jazz Friday evening. Kenny G takes the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino stage at 8 p.m. This iconic musician uses his saxophone to transport his audiences to a gentle, magical place. Other artists recognized Kenny G as something special as he has shared the stage with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Babyface, Celine Dion, Frank Sinatra, and Dionne Warwick. His sale of 70-million CDs testify to his popularity and the release of his latest album, Rhythm and Romance, sets the tone for his latest appearance. Ticket prices are $29, $39, and $49.
How about some laughs Saturday? Terry Fator, known as the Human Jukebox, brings is zany humor to Casino Morongo’s Grand Ballroom at 7 p.m. Fator sings, dances and performs with his “assistants” as he imitates famous celebrities past and present. Jokester, singer, comedian — Fator is everything. Tickets are $30 and up.
Of course, the best way to end a weekend is by sipping some premium wines. In this case, how about some of the full-bodied reds from Napa Valley that are so famous? Rich cabernets, silky merlots and jammy zinfandels are waiting for you starting at 5:30 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa. For $50, those seeking the strong, inky wines of the Napa Valley can satisfy their palate. Go on, give in to temptation! The opportunity may not return.
So, you can see, there’s a lot of interest to Boomer happening this weekend in the Coachella Valley.
Until next Monday, ROCK ON!
