STORY IDEAS

 

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is located in between the beautiful Santa Rosa and Chocolate mountain ranges in the Palm Springs Valley. The area boasts wonderful stories of celebrities, pioneers and now, entrepreneurs. Many people ask what there is to do around Palm Springs. One quickly discovers it's difficult to do everything in the area in just a few days. Whether visitors come to Fantasy Springs for gaming, golf or to enjoy the surrounding area, it offers something for everyone.
Ideas you may want to consider if your assignment brings you to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and the Palm Springs, CA area.

  • "Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is a short drive from Palm Springs. What is there to do if someone is staying there?” Besides gaming, playing golf, dining, taking in A-list entertainment, guests can get an in-room or cabana massage, visit the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, go for an ATV tour through the desert, visit the nearby famed Joshua Tree National Park, go shopping at the Rodeo Drive of Palm Springs – El Paseo and much more. 
  • “Palm Springs has often been known as the playground of Hollywood celebrities. Do Hollywood-types frequent your resort?” Do they ever! Celebrities can be spotted often at Fantasy Springs and at Eagle Falls Golf Course. The resort hosts several high profile and charity tournaments throughout the year that feature celebrity golfers. The hotel and restaurants have also been frequented by Playboy Playmates, musicians and more.
  • “Plan a Nearby Southern California Getaway.” The price of gas still fluctuates and with the economy still uncertain, many people are looking for a less-expensive alternative to a far-away destination resort. Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has it all in terms of the ultimate destination resort. Palm Springs, CA boasts an average 354 days of sunshine and Fantasy Springs features an inviting oversized pool and sundeck surrounded by palm trees. Guests can have drinks and lunch served to them as they bask in the warm desert rays. Room rates are affordable at Fantasy Springs and visitors get to skip the long drive to Las Vegas and the gas money it takes to get there.   
  • Award-winning chefs at Fantasy Springs. Several of the best chefs in the Palm Springs area can be found in the kitchens at Fantasy Springs. Executive Chef, Freddy Rieger, loves to share his east coast charm, and his recipe secrets. You just have to ask him nicely. 
  • “Who Are the Winners?” Fantasy Springs features 2,000 slots, 40 table games, the Bingo Palace and the Triple Crown Room. Big winners are made every day in the casino. Find out what players use as good luck charms. Slots and table games are also using cutting edge technology, many times without the player even noticing. Take a look at what the tech and data does.
  • “Someone in my group doesn’t gamble.” Many people would rather receive entertainment in a form other than gaming. For those not attracted by the whirr of the slots or excitement of the tables, they can take in a concert, listen to live music, “yuk it up” at the Fantasy Springs Improv Comedy Club, play golf, get a massage, enjoy a gourmet meal, relax by the pool, do some wine tasting at the 12th Floor Wine Bar & Cocktail Lounge, take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway up 8,500 feet to the top of Mt. San Jacinto, go for a hike, or just watch and in-room movie.

April 10, 2014- INDIO, CA – Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is pleased to announce Sela Curry as its new Marketing Director and Tony Sanza as its new Food & Beverage Director. Both bring extensive casino experience having worked in some of the biggest casinos throughout the country.

 With her career beginning in the casino industry as Group Sales Manager in Vicksburg, Mississippi in 1998, Curry has since managed a variety of departments in casinos across Mississippi and Louisiana including Sales, Marketing, Advertising, Community Relations, Guest Relations and Training, more specifically with Boyd Gaming properties. Sela is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana and has a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from the University of New Orleans. Widowed in 2009 while living in Louisiana, she is now residing in the beautiful desert community of Indio with her two rescue dogs (Sheba Margaret & Little Dog).

 Sela Curry noted she is so thrilled and thankful to be a part of the wonderful team at Fantasy Springs and proud to be at a property owned and operated by the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians who paved the way for tribal gaming though out the US.

 A veteran of the Trump organization in New Jersey since 1988, Sanza worked his way up from his first position as a busboy at the Trump Castle property to Director of Food and Beverage operations at one of Trump’s flagship buildings, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. Now continuing his work as Director at Fantasy Springs, along with his 30 years experience, he is qualified as an Associazione Italiana Sommeliers Level 1. For Sanza, his new home in the Coachella Valley is a big change of pace from what he is used to growing up in Long Island NY and raising his three sons Marmora, NJ

April 4, 2014 – INDIO, CA – Tickets to Robin Thicke’s rescheduled Fantasy Springs Resort Casino show go on sale today, Friday April 4th. The chart-topping artist is set to hit the Fantasy Springs Special Events Center stage on Saturday, May 3rd with special guests, DJ Cassidy and K. Michelle.

Tickets for his postponed March 28th show will be honored at the May 3rd show, or ticket holders may receive a refund in person at the Box Office or via telephone (800) 827-2946.

This spring tour comes on the heels of Robin receiving the honor of top-selling single of 2013 for "Blurred Lines” with 6.5 million units sold. The bestselling track also became one of the few songs to sell more than 6 million in 2013, and is additionally among only 26 singles to have moved more than this many units in the history of the Billboard charts.

 This past summer marked the debut of Robin Thicke’s highly anticipated sixth studio album, Blurred Lines. The collection debuted at #1 on Billboard Top 200 while, “Blurred Lines,” the single, continued its 12-week reign on the Billboard Hot 100 chart making Robin the first artist to take the top spot on both lists since December 2012 and only the 17th act to earn the distinction in the past ten years. “Blurred Lines” scored the highest audience ever recorded and broke records by climbing to #1 on 5 radio charts simultaneously – the first time this has ever been done by an artist.

 The musician, composer, and actor, released his critically acclaimed debut album, A Beautiful World, in 2003 under the name “Thicke.” Soon after, he came out with his breakthrough second release, 2006’s The Evolution Of Robin Thicke--now on the way to double platinum status. The award-winning multiplatinum superstar returned to center stage in 2008 with Something Else, a joyful and modern tribute to the ‘70s soul and pop records that was revered by critics as one of the best soul albums in years. In December of 2009 Robin released Sex Therapy. The title song was hailed by critics as “the sexiest song of the year.” Robin’s fifth studio album, Love After War was released in December of 2011.

 Most recently, Robin received three Grammy nominations including “Record of the Year,” “Best Pop Vocal Album,” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” The third single off of the Blurred Lines, “Feel Good,” is available now.

 Tickets for the 8PM performance are on sale today for $109, $89, $69, $49 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

MICHAEL MCDONALD AND TOTO ANNOUNCE TOUR STOP AT FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO

April 02, 2014INDIO, CA – Grammy® Award winners Michael McDonald and Toto recently announced their Co-Headline tour is making a stop at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, August 9th. Tickets for the summer show go on sale May 9th. 

 McDonald and the members of Toto are old friends, dating back years prior to the singer's appearance on Toto's "I'll Be Over You," from the Farenheit album in 1986.  Toto members Mike Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro and Steve Lukather collaborated with McDonald on his RIAA gold certified solo debut If That's What It Takes (1982).  The trio all performed on "That's Why" and "No Such Luck," while Jeff laid down the drums and Luke contributed guitar on "I Keep Forgettin'."  Lukather also played on "I Gotta Try" and "Believe In It."  In 1977, Keyboardist David Paich arranged horns and strings on the Doobie Brothers Livin' on the Fault Line.  Even earlier, in 1972, Toto drummer Jeff Porcaro extended the invitation to McDonald to join Steely Dan.

 Over the course of four Steely Dan albums, from Katy Lied to Gaucho, McDonald became an integral part of the group’s sound contributing backing vocals on classic tracks like “Rose Darling,” “Any World That I’m Welcome To” and “Peg.” Much like the members of Toto, McDonald was a sought after session player in Los Angeles in the Seventies.  Aside from his hits with The Doobies as well as a solo artist, McDonald lent his voice to records by an A-Z of artists, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill, Grizzly Bear and Holy Ghost.  Meanwhile, his solo career in the ‘80s and ‘90s zoomed from success to success on the wings of evergreen hits like “I Keep Forgettin’,” "Sweet Freedom," “On My Own” (a duet with Patti LaBelle) and the Grammy-winning duet with James Ingram “Yah Mo B There.”

 With over 35 years together and thousands of credits and accolades to their names, Toto remains one of the top-selling tour and recording acts in the world.

FORMER WORLD TITLE CHALLENGER MONTE “TWO GUNZ” BARRETT STEPS UP TO FACE UNBEATEN LUIS ORTIZ IN “NIGHT OF THE HEAVYWEIGHTS” MAIN EVENT ON THURSDAY, APRIL 3

INDIO, CA (Mar. 25) – The April 3 FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes tripleheader is now complete, as former world heavyweight title challenger Monte “Two Gunz” Barrett returns to the ring to face unbeaten Cuban contender Luis Ortiz in the main event of the highly anticipated “Night of the Heavyweights” Golden Boy Live! event at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.

 In previously announced televised heavyweight bouts, Vallejo, California's Gerald “El Gallo Negro” Washington risks his perfect professional record in the 10-round co-main event against Houston’ Skipp “Strictly Business” Scott and 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale goes for 10 straight wins when he takes on veteran standout Nagy Aguilera.

 Plus, unbeaten rising star Diego “The Golden Kid” De La Hoya will appear in a four-round junior featherweight bout, and local favorites Santiago “El Lobito” Guevara, Neeco Macias and Michael Hunter will also be seeing action on this stacked card.

 Fight fans in attendance at Fantasy Springs are in for a special treat as former heavyweight contender Gerry “Gentleman” Cooney will be on hand as a special VIP guest to meet and greet those at the event. One of the hardest punchers in heavyweight history, Cooney is best remembered for his knockout wins over Ken Norton, Ron Lyle and Jimmy Young, as well as his epic 1982 challenge for Larry Holmes’ title.

 Currently ranked number two in the world by the WBA, 34-year-old southpaw Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz (20-0, 17 KOs) graduated from the legendary Cuban amateur boxing program with nearly 350 wins and numerous titles. When he turned professional in his adopted home state of Florida in 2010, he set his sights on gold of a different sort; a heavyweight world championship. Thus far, Ortiz has been unstoppable with five of his last six wins coming by knockout, making it clear that he will take out anyone in the way of his pursuit of a title.

 Equipped with top-level heavyweight experience few can match on the current landscape, Queens, New York’s Monte “Two Gunz” Barrett (35-10-2, 20 KOs) has been in the ring with the best of the best over the course of his career, including Wladimir Klitschko, Tim Witherspoon, Hasim Rahman, David Haye and David Tua. Eager to get back in the heavyweight race, Barrett has specialized in spoiling the rise of the highly-touted, handing Dominick Guinn, Owen Beck, Eric Kirkland and Tye Fields crushing losses. He hopes to add Ortiz to that list on April 3.

 “Night Of The Heavyweights” is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona and O'Reilly Auto Parts.  The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

 Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45, are on sale now at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.

INDIO, Calif. (March. 6, 2014) - The big men of boxing are on their way to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. on Thursday, April 3 when Golden Boy Live! airs “Night Of The Heavyweights,” a tripleheader of hard-hitting heavyweight action on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.  In the 10-round main event, unbeaten Cuban star Luis Ortiz looks to continue his race towards a world title fight against an opponent to be announced shortly.

 Plus, Vallejo, California’s Gerald “El Gallo Negro” Washington risks his perfect professional record in the 10-round co-main event against Houston’ Skipp “Strictly Business” Scott and 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale goes for 10 straight wins when he takes on veteran standout Nagy Aguilera

 Currently ranked number two in the world by the WBA, 34-year-old southpaw Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz (20-0, 17 KOs) graduated from the legendary Cuban amateur boxing program with nearly 350 wins and numerous titles.  When he turned professional in his adopted home state of Florida in 2010, he set his sights on gold of a different sort; a heavyweight world championship.  Thus far, Ortiz has been unstoppable with five of his last six wins coming by knockout and has made it clear that he will take out anyone in his way on the road to the title.

 With six of his professional wins taking place at Fantasy Springs, 31-year-old Gerald “El Gallo Negro” Washington (11-0, 8 KOs) has clearly found a home away from home in the Indio venue.  A former standout football player at USC, Washington discovered a new athletic life in the boxing ring and he has continued to impress with his poise and power.  In January, he halted Arron Lyons in five rounds and on April 3, he steps up to face Skipp Scott.

 After losing his first professional bout in 2006, Houston’s Skipp Scott (16-1, 10 KOs) hasn’t lost since earning his nickname “Strictly Business.”  A staple on the Texas and Louisiana fight circuit, the 35-year-old Scott scored the biggest win of his career in January of 2013 when he defeated Kertson Manswell for the WBF Intercontinental title.  Now the six-foot-eight inch Scott is hungry for more and he is ready to let the fists fly against Washington.

Undefeated since turning professional after the 2012 London Olympic Games, Alhambra’s Dominic Breazeale (9-0, 9 KOs) has yet to let any opponent go the distance and he has no intention of starting now.  After fighting six times in 2013, Breazeale kicked 2014 off to a great start with a third-round stoppage over Homer Fonseca in January at Fantasy Springs.  On April 3, the 28-year-old will see if he can defeat a crafty and experienced foe in Nagy Aguilera.

 A native of Santo Domingo who now makes his home in the state of New York, 27-year-old Nagy Aguilera (19-7, 13 KOs) has a wealth of experience.  A veteran of fights against boxing greats and former World Champions Antonio Tarver, Samuel Peter, Chris Arreola and Tomasz Adamek, Aguilera has won three of his last four fights, which is a hot streak he will take with him into the ring against Breazeale.

 “Night Of The Heavyweights” is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona and O’Reilly Auto Parts.  The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

 Tickets, priced at $25, $35 and $45, will go on sale Friday, March 7 at 10:00 a.m. PT at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, by calling (800) 827-2946 or online at www.fantasyspringsresort.com.

January 30, 2014 – INDIO, CA – Enlisted military men Michael Ross, George Crawford and Drew Babcock left New York in April 2013 and have been walking across the United States in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the Livestrong Foundation for the fight against cancer. On Friday, January 31st, they will stop at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino to reenergize before their final stretch to Huntington Beach, CA.

 This grassroots effort began on April 21st, 2013 in Danbury, Connecticut. The three decided to walk for cancer not only because they have all been affected by it, but they felt that they were in a unique situation to do something about it. After looking through hundreds of different organizations, they narrowed it down to the Livestrong Foundation. After months of learning more and more about the foundation, they have come to love what they do for people and most importantly, what they do with donated funds. Their goal is to raise $20,000 before they reach the Pacific Ocean in less than 12 days.

 Ross, Crawford and Babcock are available to speak about their journey on Saturday, February 1st at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino or over the phone. For interviews, please contact Sarah Hahne. To learn more about their experience, please visit http://www.walkingforacure2013.com/.

January 27, 2014 – INDIO, CA  – Following a successful week of concerts at New York’s Marquis Theater, Il Divo - the record-breaking classical crossover group who has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide - will bring “IL DIVO - A MUSICAL AFFAIR: THE GREATEST SONGS OF BROADWAY LIVE” to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Friday, April 4th.   The engagement supports the group’s sixth studio album “A Musical Affair.”   It’s their first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Carousel and West Side Story and features stellar duet partners Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Nicole Scherzinger, Heather Headley and Michael Ball.

 The limited engagement of live concerts in NYC marked the first time the four members sang together on the Broadway stage.  The show intertwines the most famous songs from Broadway musicals with the individual theatrical experiences of Carlos, David, Urs and Sébastien. Tony and Grammy Award Winner Heather Headley was a featured guest for the entire run.  The quartet members are no strangers to musical theatre; Carlos was cast as Marius in Les Misérables when the show first premiered in Spain in 1993, while David played Rodolfo in Broadway’s La Bohème in 2003, which subsequently garnered seven Tony nominations.

 The new show was developed by long-term IL DIVO collaborator and artistic director Brian Burke (La Reve and Celine Dion’s residency shows in Las Vegas, Elton John, Rod Stewart and The Killers).

The album “A Musical Affair” showcases Il Divo’s signature romantic and emotional interpretation of heartfelt classics like “Some Enchanted Evening” (South Pacific), “Bring Him Home,” (Les Miserables), “Tonight,” (West Side Story), and more. Il Divo has also provided new arrangements for these much-loved songs, as well as invited familiar Broadway and pop artists to appear on certain tracks as their duet partners. These top musicians lend their talent in songs like “Music of the Night” (Phantom of the Opera) – LIVE duet with Barbra Streisand; “All I Ask Of You” (Phantom Of The Opera) – duet with Kristin Chenoweth; “Memory” (Cats) – duet with Nicole Scherzinger; and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” (The Lion King) – duet with Heather Headley.

 Urs Buhler of IL DIVO said "It has been so inspiring to work with such legendary songs from the world of Broadway musicals for our new album and we can't wait to now perform them in our own style to our fans around the world".

Tickets for the 8PM performance are on sale for $89, $79, $59 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

January 24, 2014 – INDIO, CA – Nine-time Grammy® Award winning artist, John Legend, brings his 2014 North American tour titled “An Evening with John Legend: The All of Me Tour ” to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, March 22nd.

 The tour comes in support of Legend’s highly acclaimed fourth studio album Love In the Future which continues to gain momentum on the Billboard 200 Chart and currently sits in the top 10 on the R&B Album Chart.  Produced by Legend and longtime collaborators Kanye West and Dave Tozer, the albums smash single “All of Me,” was recently certified Gold sales status.  

 Ohio-born John Legend is a critically acclaimed, multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter.  He’s sold an impressive seven million albums worldwide. His work has garnered him nine Grammy Awards, three Soul Train Awards, the BET Award for Best New Artist and the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. 

 After college, Legend was introduced to then up-and-coming hip-hop artist Kanye West, who quickly signed Legend to his G.O.O.D. Music imprint and hired him to sing vocal hooks on some of his music.  Legend started gaining momentum through a series of similar collaborations with established artists, adding vocals to an impressive list of chart-topping hits including West's "All of the Lights," Jay-Z's "Encore" and back-up vocals on Alicia Keys' 2003 song, "You Don't Know My Name."  Legend’s debut album, Get Lifted, was released in December of 2004 through Columbia Records.  The critically acclaimed album spawned the artist's first hit single, “Ordinary People,” and scored Legend multiple Grammy Awards in 2006, including Best R&B Album, Best New Artist and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. 

 The follow up was 2006’s platinum-selling Once Again, which brought Legend another Grammy, Best Male R&B Performance, for his single “Heaven,” and included collaborations with Kanye West, will.i.am and Raphael Saadiq. Legend’s next release was 2008’s Evolver, led by the hit single "Green Light" featuring Andre 3000. Legend's most recent effort was his 2010 collaboration with the Roots, Wake Up, which won the Grammy for Best R&B Album a year later.

January 22, 2014 – INDIO, CA – Two iconic bands that have stood the test of time will display their talents on stage at the Fantasy Springs Special Events Center. On Saturday, April 19th the Temptations and the Four Tops will prove why they have become cultural heroes to their millions of fans.

 For more than forty years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits, and sold-out performances throughout the world. The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, that amazing engine invented by Berry Gordy, The Temps began their musical life in Detroit in the early sixties. It wasn’t until 1964 however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do the things You Do” turned the guys into stars.

 An avalanche of hits followed, many of which...”My Girl,” for instance...attained immortality. “It’s Growing,” “Since I Lost My Baby;,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” “Beauty Is only Skin Deep,” “I Wish It Would Rain”...the hits kept coming.

 The classic lineup was Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin. Beyond the fabulous singing, The Temps became known for smooth stepping and flawless presentations. The Temptations Walk became a staple of American style. Flair, flash and class.

 Another group that helped define the Motown sound of the 1960’s was the quartet known as the Four Tops. They have been labeled as “The Immortals” by Rolling Stone Magazine.  The Four Tops are the story four powerful voices and four powerful friendships. The founding members of the Four Tops, Levi Stubbs, Abdul “Duke” Fakir, Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Lawrence Payton, performed together for more than four decades, building their harmonies, chart-toping songs and success on the foundation of a friendship that began as teenagers.

 It was in 1954, at a high school party in Detroit when the group was urged by partygoers to provide some impromptu entertainment. The synergy was obvious, immediate and strong. The quartet decided to start performing and called themselves The Four Aims (Aiming for the Top). Their popularity grew as they performed at small cubs all over Detroit honing their act while singing jazz and standards. Gaining popularity for their pure harmonies and polished performances. 

 Over the years their repertoire has included doo-wop, jazz, soul music, R&B, disco, adult contemporary, hard rock and show tunes. They turned out dozens of chart topping hits including, “Baby I Need Your Loving”, “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch) “, “It’s the Same Old Song” and “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I Got”.

 Tickets for the 8PM performance go on sale January 24th for $69, $49, $29 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

 This spring tour comes on the heels of Robin receiving the honor of top-selling single of 2013 for "Blurred Lines” with 6.5 million units sold. The bestselling track also became one of the few songs to sell more than 6 million in 2013, and is additionally among only 26 singles to have moved more than this many units in the history of the Billboard charts.

 This past summer marked the debut of Robin Thicke’s highly anticipated sixth studio album, Blurred Lines. The collection debuted at #1 on Billboard Top 200 while, “Blurred Lines,” the single, continued its 12-week reign on the Billboard Hot 100 chart making Robin the first artist to take the top spot on both lists since December 2012 and only the 17th act to earn the distinction in the past ten years. “Blurred Lines” scored the highest audience ever recorded and broke records by climbing to #1 on 5 radio charts simultaneously – the first time this has ever been done by an artist.

 The musician, composer, and actor, released his critically acclaimed debut album, A Beautiful World, in 2003 under the name “Thicke.” Soon after, he came out with his breakthrough second release, 2006’s The Evolution Of Robin Thicke--now on the way to double platinum status. The award-winning multiplatinum superstar returned to center stage in 2008 with Something Else, a joyful and modern tribute to the ‘70s soul and pop records that was revered by critics as one of the best soul albums in years. In December of 2009 Robin released Sex Therapy. The title song was hailed by critics as “the sexiest song of the year.” Robin’s fifth studio album, Love After War was released in December of 2011.

 Most recently, Robin received three Grammy nominations including “Record of the Year,” “Best Pop Vocal Album,” and “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” The third single off of the Blurred Lines, “Feel Good,” is available now.

INDIO, CALIF. (Dec. 20) - FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes’ Golden Boy Live! series returns to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. on Friday, Jan. 24 to kick-off 2014 with a hard-hitting main event featuring San Diego’s undefeated Antonio “Relentless” Orozco as he puts his undefeated record on the line against fellow power-puncher Miguel Angel “El Anestesista” Huerta of Ecatepec de Morelos, Mexico in a 10-round junior welterweight fight.  Also featured on the night of boxing will be a 10-round IBF Super Welterweight Final Elimination bout between former World Champion Cornelius “K9” Bundrage and Miami’s Joey “Twinkle Fingers” Hernandez.

 Rapidly becoming one of the most intimidating fighters in the junior welterweight division, Antonio “Relentless” Orozco (18-0, 14 KO’s) stopped his last six opponents by way of knockout, including veterans Ivan Hernandez and Jose Reynoso and fellow prospect Danny Escobar.  On Jan. 24, the 26-year-old from San Diego returns for his third appearance at Fantasy Springs when he faces a rugged veteran in Huerta.

 Hard-hitting southpaw  “El Anestesista” (27-11-1, 18 KO’s) has tested several top-notch fighters over the years, with big wins over Daniel Alicea, Efren Hinojosa and Darling Jimenez proving that when the bell rings, the Mexico City product is always ready for battle.  The always-tough Huerta is looking forward to upsetting Orozco.

 Eager to prove his boxing life begins at 40, Detroit’s former World Champion Cornelius “K9” Bundrage (32-5, 19 KO’s) is eager to defeat Joey Hernandez on Jan. 24 and put himself back in line for a shot at becoming a world champion again.  The former IBF 154-pound world champion from 2010, when he knocked out Cory Spinks, to 2013 when he lost a controversial majority decision to Ishe Smith, Bundrage plans on letting his heavy hands go and adding another knockout to his record.

 Miami southpaw Joey “Twinkle Fingers” Hernandez (23-1-1, 13 KO’s) has long been one of South Florida’s best-kept secrets.  The winner of eight straight bouts, five by knockout, and owner of the USBO and the WBC USNBC titles at 154 pounds, Hernandez is on the brink of a shot at a world title.  The 29-year-old is back in action after a victory over James Winchester in November of last year and ready to take on Bundrage of Jan. 24.

Orozco vs. Huerta is a 10-round junior welterweight bout presented by Golden Boy Promotions and sponsored by Corona and O’Reilly Auto Parts.  The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

December 18, 2013INDIO, CA – Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons will make their return to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, March 15, 2014. The group will take over the Special Events Center stage and show why they are just as hot now in the 21st century, as they were in the 1960’s.

Thanks to the success of the Tony-winning musical, Jersey Boys, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, such classic songs as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Rag Doll,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” are all the rage all over again. The play has taken Broadway by storm and five other casts performing Jersey Boys nightly from Las Vegas to London, the real Frankie Valli is also packing venues around the world.

Frankie Valli has been successfully touring and making music for more than fifty years now, both as a solo artist and as the lead singer of The Four Seasons. Valli’s first taste of national exposure came in 1962 when he and The Four Seasons performed their single “Sherry” on American Bandstand. The performance took the nation by storm propelling the group to their first #1 record and making them a household name. The hit train continued to roll for The Four Seasons in 1963 and 1964 as they went on to produce several more #1 hits.

After much success with The Four Seasons in the first half of the ‘60s, Valli released his first solo effort in 1967, Frankie Valli: Solo. The album contained the classic hit “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.” He would go on to produce nine Top 40 hits and two #1 singles, “My Eyes Adored You” and “Grease.”

From the success of his first studio album in 15 years, Romancing the ‘60s, Frankie Valli is as big as he was in 1962 and not looking to hang up the microphone anytime soon.

His performance in the movie Bye Bye Birdie and his recordings "Wild One" and "Volare" made him a famous performer in the 1960s. He was also considered one of the period’s hottest teen idols. Fabian also enjoyed superstardom as a teen idol of the 1950s and 1960s. He rose to national prominence after performing several times on American Bandstand.

October 30, 2013 – INDIO, CALIF. – Best known for his victory on “America’s Got Talent,” Terry Fator captured the hearts, and funny bones, of America in 2007 with his unique combination of celebrity impressions and unparalleled voice. On Saturday, January 18, 2014 Fator will return to the Special Events Center Stage at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.  

Accompanying Fator will be a stellar cast of puppets including Monty Carlo the lounge singer, Winston The Impersonating Turtle, cowboy Walter T. Airdale, Julius the soul singer, Vikki “The Cougar,” Wrex the crash test dummy and hip hop diva Berry Fabulous. Each character allows Fator to sing a different genre in an unbelievable manner, with performances ranging from Garth Brooks and Dean Martin to Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga and more. 

 Fator’s rise to fame from his time with a Texas-based cover band to his very own theatre at The Mirage Hotel & Casino was 32 years in the making.  He first discovered his knack for impressions at the age of six, when he began performing Bill Cosby comedy routines for his family and friends. As a young man, Fator sang lead vocals for Texas the Band, a group whose playlist ranged from Garth Brooks to Guns N’ Roses.

 A trip to Las Vegas in 2005 sparked Fator’s desire to become a big-name entertainer and he left with visions of billboards and bright lights, all donning his name. Unwilling to give up on his dreams, Fator was persuaded to audition for “America’s Got Talent” when he saw a ventriloquist from season one on the “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

 During his audition, Fator stunned the judges with his puppet Emma Taylor and her impression of Etta James. In the final episode, a stunning Roy Orbison performance of “Crying,” courtesy of Winston The Impersonating Turtle, led to an eruption of praise from the audience, the judges and America. His life would never be the same.

 In one year, Fator went from small-town appearances to “The Today Show,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and, at long last, “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

 Tickets for the 8 p.m. Terry Fator performance go on sale November 1st, for $89, $69, $49 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.
