Do you long for the big hair, guitar shredding and singalong anthems of the 1980s or are you an old-school, classic rock ’n’ roll fan who saw the 1960s as the golden age of music?
Is disco still your guilty pleasure after all these years or are the alternative rock trends of today more your thing?
At Resorts World’s Bar360, you can be transported back to whichever musical era you want with the variety of musical acts slated to perform at the Ozone Park casino just this month.
“Resorts World is extremely excited to present a diverse nightly entertainment schedule at Bar360,” Resorts World director of public relations Michelle Stoddart said in a statement. “Having a variety of bands and offering all major sports programs on TV gives our guests so many great options to enjoy time spent at the casino.”
One of the more popular acts on the calendar this month is Killer Joe’s “Classic Rock Tribute” on Jan. 11 at 9 p.m.
“Killer Joe” Ferraro, a Long Island resident, has played countless “extreme, high energy” shows all over the country, but Bar360 remains one of his favorite places to play a gig.
“Traveling musicians really love that venue,” Ferraro said in a Tuesday interview. “Their sound technicians there are great.”
The material Ferraro busts out will have you thinking it’s the ’60s all over again, as he specializes in “old school rock ’n’ roll, blues and soul” in the vein of legends like Chuck Berry and The Rolling Stones.
“We get everyone involved in the show,” he said. “It’s like a big frat party from 1966. We’ll have a ball, I promise.”
If 1980s rock is more your thing, the Van Halen tribute band Bottoms Up will take the Bar360 stage on Jan. 18 at 9 p.m.
Lead guitarist Jake Miller, also a Long Island resident, said anyone who missed seeing the rock group on tour in the 1980s would be wise to check out their show.
“You should expect to see Van Halen circa 1981 to 1984 with our costumes and songs,” Miller said on Tuesday. “We have a complete stage show that people love.”
Expect to hear classics like “Jump” and “Panama,” as Bottoms Up plays them all.
“We play all those hits,” he said. “Everyone has a really good time.”
Other groups booked to play Bar360 include salsa singer Brenda K. Starr on Jan. 13, disco act The Ritchie Family on Jan. 20 and Drive (The Cars cover band) on Jan. 25.
The venue will also play host to salsa lessons every Thursday at 8:30 p.m. and DJ sets every Saturday at 11 p.m.
