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.

MULTI-PLATUNUM SELLING ARTISTS, GODSMACK, SET TO ROCK AT FANTASY SPRINGS RESORT CASINO

 
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - SEPTEMBER 2, 2015

September 2, 2015 – INDIO, Calif. – Powerful, loud and fierce, Godsmack has garnered multiple Grammy nominations and are Billboard Award winners. They have released six studio albums, one EP (The Other Side), four DVDs, one compilation album (Good Times, Bad Times... Ten Years of Godsmack), and one live album (Live and Inspired). The band has had three consecutive number-one albums (Faceless, IV, and The Oracle) on the Billboard 200. Godsmack also has 20 top ten rock radio hits, including 15 songs in the top five, which is a record number of top ten singles by a rock artist.  Saturday, November 13th they bring their thunderous live show to the Special Events Center Stage at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

 Tickets for the 8PM Godsmack performance are on sale for $69, $59 and $39 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

 In February of 1995, after being behind the drums for more than 23 years, Sully Erna decided to start a new band. It was only a matter of time before he realized he needed to take charge and step out from behind the kit to front the band himself.  One year and a couple of member changes later Godsmack was born. Sully Erna, Robbie Merrill and Tony Rombola hit the studio and recorded their first CD titled All Wound Up. They did this over one weekend for a measly twenty six-hundred dollars. Over the next two years, the band played throughout the Boston scene with drummer Joe Darco and began earning a strong reputation of being a great live band. The noise they were making in the New England area created a snowball effect like no other.

Godsmack began drawing in bigger and bigger audiences to their live shows. Their CD began circulating through the streets of Boston and eventually landed in the hands of a DJ for WAAF, a Boston radio station. WAAF put "Keep Away" into heavy rotation and it quickly soared to the #1 spot at the station. Newbury Comics, a New England record store chain, agreed to sell the CD on consignment and the grind continued.  Shortly after the success of "Keep Away" Godsmack went back into the studio and recorded a single titled "Whatever", which became the new local favorite on WAAF. It took off in the blink of an eye and the race was on.

As a result of the single doing so well, Godsmack's CD began selling hundreds of copies per week, and soon escalated to more than one thousand copies per week, becoming the second best selling CD in that chain of stores. Godsmack's live shows began selling out throughout New England, which in return created more requests for their music on the local radio stations and more CD sales. On and on it went until the summer of 1998 when Republic/Universal stepped up and signed the band to their label.
Joe Darco was soon replaced by Tommy Stewart, All Wound Up was re-mastered and the artwork was changed. The finished self-titled debut CD Godsmack hit the shelves six weeks later.
Godsmack hit the road on their first headlining tour, The Voodoo Tour. The bands strong live performances, coupled with high record sales and growing number of fans, landed them time slots on Ozzfest 1999 and 2000, a European tour with Black Sabbath and an appearance at Woodstock 1999.

In 2000, Godsmack released their second CD, Awake. This album's title track dominated rock radio and broke chart records throughout 2000 and 2001. The CD's instrumental track "Vampires" earned the band its first Grammy nomination.
Godsmack toured Awake selling out arenas and outdoor venues nationwide. They gave their fans their moneys worth with a gothic stage, video and pyro, lots of pyro!  In 2002, Sully was asked to A&R the soundtrack for the motion picture The Scorpion King, the third installment in the Mummy saga. The song Godsmack wrote and performed lived up to its title: "I Stand Alone" became the #1 single at Rock Radio and the most played Active Rock song in 2002 for 14 weeks straight.

After spending over four years on the road the band decided to take a break before heading back into the studio. It was during this break that Shannon Larkin, a friend of Sully's for 15 years, formerly of Wrathchild America, AMEN and Ugly Kid Joe, was asked to replace Tommy Stewart.

The new line up headed to Miami to write and record the bands third CD. Faceless was released in April of 2003 and became the #1 selling record in America of that week. Faceless also brought another tour that ran 23 months strong including two more Grammy nominations for "I Stand Alone" and an 11 month international arena tour with the kings of metal, Metallica!!
In March of 2004, Godsmack released their first acoustic EP, The Other Side which included new versions of previous hits like "Keep Away", "Re-Align" and a haunting new version of the Navy's recruit song, "Awake"!  This also spawned a side tour of its own. Godsmack filled in breaks from the big stage with Metallica with intimate storytelling acoustic shows giving their fans the explanation behind the title, The Other Side.

With rich velvet curtains, stone gargoyles and strings of Christmas lights illuminating theaters around the country, fans had a whole new experience of the true talents of this unique foursome. Stripped down to nothing, Godsmack continued to deliver one of the best acoustic performances of our time.
Godsmack ended 2004, and two CD cycles, with a nostalgic New Year's Eve performance at the Hard Rock Café, in Orlando, Fl. During this amazing three hour performance, Godsmack rolled through just about every song in their catalog as well as a few well known cover songs. The band released Godsmack IV on April 25, 2006 and their latest album, The Oracle, hit the streets on May 4, 2010.  In July, the band revealed dates for an upcoming North American fall headline tour.  Fans in the Coachella Valley will get to see them live on Saturday, November 13th.

MARIACHI VARGAS DE TECALITLAN AND SPECIAL GUEST, YOLANDA DEL RIO TO SHARE THE SPECIAL EVENTS CENTER STAGE AT FANTASY SPRINGS

August 24, 2015 – INDIO, CALIF. – The first incarnation of the group Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán began in 1898 as a quartet, and over the decades (and into the 21st century) the ensemble would become one of the most important in Mexican music history.  Yolanda Lopez Jaen, Better known as Yolanda Del Rio was born in Pachuca Hidalgo, Mexico. At age 15 she recorded her first L.P. "Nobody's Daughter" Which sold over a million copies in just six months.  She has toured countries in North, Central and South America and Europe.  On Friday, December 4th Yolanda Del Rio, along with Mariachi Vargas De Tecalitlan will perform live on stage in the Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

The origins of the mariachi orchestra date back to the Spanish-derived string groups of the early 19th century in the Mexican state of Jalisco, and now the mariachi orchestra serves as the basis of the regional Mexican son jaliciense form. By the early 20th century, mariachi groups had established their ensemble collection of violins, guitars (and guitar relatives) along with trumpets and the harp, were regarded as semiprofessional groups in and around Jalisco.

Founded in 1898, Mariachi Vargas emerged as one of the most celebrated mariachi groups, and acquired national success upon its presentation at the inaugural celebration of President Lázaro Cárdenas in 1934. Musical director Rubén Fuentes (who joined the group in 1944) would go on to arrange music for many of Mexico's celebrated singers and composers such as Lola Beltrán, Pedro Infante and José Alfredo Jiménez. The band's seminal work throughout the coming decades set the tone for many mariachi ensembles by insisting that all of the group's musicians know how to read music, resulting in a more refined and trained ensemble. Credited with modernizing the genre, Mariachi Vargas' meticulously crafted arrangements helped to propel the national pride for what would become Mexico's classical sound.

Yolanda del Rio is a simple woman who has been characterized by impressing her countless followers with a great feeling at each of her performances. Today one of the biggest and most beloved singers of the ranchero genre, Yolanda Del Rio is most certainly, La Gran Señora De Mexico.

Tickets for the 8PM Mariachi Vargas De Tecalitlan with special guest Yolanda Del Rio performance go on sale Friday, September 4th for $59, $39 and $29 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

August 17, 2015 – 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, November 21, 2015 Fator will return to the Special Events Center Stage at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

Returning with Fator will be his all-star team of anything-but-ordinary puppets. Including Duggie the annoying neighbor, Emma the little girl with the big voice, Monty Carlo the lounge singer, Maynard Thompkins the world’s greatest Elvis impersonator and country superstar Walter T. Airdale. 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.  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 8PM Terry Fator’s performance go on sale Friday, August 21th for $89, $69 and $49 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com<http://www.fantasyspringsresort.com/>.

August 17, 2015 – INDIO, CALIF. – Art Garfunkel’s solo and collaborative work has earned him six Grammys, including the Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1990, he and former musical partner Paul Simon were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The iconic and incomparable Art Garfunkel is making his highly anticipated return to the stage at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, November 7th at 8PM.

So far this year, Garfunkel has performed in Korea, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, France, Germany and Denmark, as well as nearly two dozen shows in the U.S. This past June, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member and Diamond-selling singer was invited to Tel Aviv, Israel, where he packed the 10,000-capacity Bloomfield Stadium. This year’s tour with guitarist Tab Laven, encompasses his solo hits, Simon and Garfunkel songs, cuts from his favorite songwriters Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, A.C. Jobim, Paul Simon and parts of his forthcoming autobiography.

Garfunkel is very much enjoying his time on the road, saying “I do a 90-minute show, where I mix songs and read poetic bits from my autobiography. I write about my life in show business, my woman, crossing the U.S. and Europe on foot, the mystery of it all. The act of reading these things, and the inflections and pauses, seems to me like singing.

August 3, 2015 – INDIO, CA – Chart-topping San Francisco-natives Train will bring their vast catalog of hit songs to fans at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Friday, November 6 on the Special Events Center stage. The Grammy and Billboard Award winning band will play tracks from their newest album, Bulletproof Picasso, including the top 10 radio single “Angel in Blue Jeans,” along with their many hits and fan favorites from the past 20 years.

Tickets for the 8:00 pm show go on sale Friday, August 7th for $129, $99, $89, $69 and at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com<http://www.FantasySpringsResort.com>.

Bulletproof Picasso – the band’s 7th studio album – debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 upon its September 16, 2014 debut and earned rave reviews. Billboard’s Richard Bienstock says the band’s “wholehearted embrace of pop has unshackled Train, allowing it to revel in anything-goes stylistic tourism” that all feels “oddly cohesive, with the band’s rocker roots showing an impressive pliability to move within pop’s boundaries.”


The climb to the top began in San Francisco in 1994. Train’s original 5-member band tenaciously built a loyal following, leading up to their own self-titled debut album, released by Columbia in 1998.  The tumbling wordplay of “Meet Virginia” gave them their first unlikely radio hit, with 2001’s Drops Of Jupiter garnering multi-platinum status thanks to the double-Grammy winning title song that spent 10 months in the Top 40.  In their typical ‘you-gotta’-nail-it-down-motherfucker’ style, the quixotic song snared the Best Rock Song trophy by beating out Coldplay and two U2 songs.


The group won another Grammy in 2011 for their global hit “Hey Soul Sister,” the #1 best-selling smash and most downloaded single of 2010, from their multi-platinum album Save Me, San Francisco.  Their most recent album, 2012’s California 37 launched the hit “Drive By,” which reached the Top 10 in 13 countries.  They’ve sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, more than 30 million tracks, with multiple platinum/gold citations, including 3 Grammy Awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors. Additionally, Train's award-winning Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co. has recently released their 6th varietal, 'Bulletproof Picasso' sauvignon blanc. Proceeds from the wine support Family House, a San Francisco charity that supports families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

The hit single “No Querias Lastimarme” spent several weeks on Top the charts.

In the following years, her chart-topping songs included, “Dr. Psiquiatra,” “Que Voy a Hacer Sin El?,” “El Ultimo Beso,” “Manana” and “Que Hago Aqui?.” Her 1991 album Tu Angel De La Guarda opened doors for her in Spanish-speaking countries, particularly in the Southern Cone and among the U.S. Latino population.

May 13, 2015 – INDIO, CALIF. – Fantasy Springs Resort Casino welcomes Alejandra Guzman to the Special Events Center. The Latin Grammy Award winning rock singer and actress has a huge fan base throughout Latin America and her amazing live show will light up the stage Friday, July 10th at 8pm.   

Guzman recorded her debut album Bye Mama in 1988, which gave way for her first of many hits, “La plaga.”  In 1990 the songstress made it big with the song “Eternamente Bella”, which became a number one hit in Mexico and other Latin countries.  The song is considered a classic by many Spanish rock fans.

Guzman won her first Latin Grammy Award in 2002 for Best Rock Solo Vocal Album for Soy.  In 2006, she released the award winning, double-platinum album, Indeleble. It won Album of the Year and Guzman nabbed the award for Best Female Pop Vocal. One of her best known songs, “Volverte a amar”, is from that album. The hit made it all the way to the #1 spot on the Hot Latin Pop Airplay chart.

In 2007 Guzmán was diagnosed with cancer and won the battle.  This marked the beginning of a new phase in her life and career.  Guzman released Fuerza which earned her another Latin Grammy nomination.  In 2009 Unico was released, followed by 20 Años De Èxitos En Vivo with Moderatto, Vico C and Jenni Rivera in 2011.  Guzmán released her fourth live album "La Guzmán En Primera Fila" in 2013, which demonstrated her enduring talents as a performer.  During that same year she became a coach on hit reality television show “La Voz Mexico.”

Recently singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel invited Guzmán to participate on his album Los Dúo (The Duets) released in February 2015, where she interpreted the original racnchera song “Caray” with a bluesy rock edge.  Alejandra Guzmán continues to thrill her loyal fan base at all of her live concert performances and the Coachella Valley will get to see why on Friday, July 10th.
