SIAMSA - A Celtic Christmas

SIAMSA - A Celtic Christmas

SIAMSA at the Nugget Casino Resort

‘SIAMSA’ – A Celtic Christmas!

An enchanting, adventurous Holiday Musical Theater production for the entire family.

 ‘SIAMSA’ is an original story of a young girl in search of the “Candle in the Window”…the Light that represents the true meaning of Christmas.

 Her search for the light takes her on an eventful journey from village to village, where she encounters the many different Celtic traditions, superstitions, customs and amusing antics along the way.

 She is enchanted by the adorable ‘Wee Irish’ and overwhelmed by the dynamic hard shoe rhythms of the Irish Dance performers.

 

Special Guests include Two Time World Irish Dance Champion Jason Hays and International Irish Dance Champion Laura Cass, with Beautiful Vocalists under the direction of Cami Thompson and World Renowned Harpist Marina Roznitovsky-Oster. Olivia Swearingen appears as the young girl ‘Holly’ with an outstanding cast of Dancers, Singers, Actors and Musicians from the Reno Irish Dance Company under the Artistic Direction of Amanda Coulson.

Bring the entire family for this Charming Journey through Beautiful Music, Dynamic Dance, and the heartwarming, spirited tale of ‘Holly’, as only the Celts can tell, in ‘SIAMSA – A Celtic Christmas".

Description:

Dan Finnerty caught America’s attention as the foul-mouthed wedding singer in the box office smash Old School, performing is now-infamous rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” as well as his appearance as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and again as the inappropriate wedding singer in the record breaking hit, The Hangover.

What started as a drunken joke for Finnerty singing “I Am Woman” at a karaoke bar has spiraled out of control into The Dan Band – a cult phenomenon that has garnered rave reviews from the New York Times, the LA Times, Rolling Stone, Variety among others, and prompted Entertainment Weekly to dub it, “The hottest ticket in Hollywood.”

The Dan Band plays to sold-out crowds from Los Angeles to New York and has appeared on numerous shows including The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ellen, The Late Late Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, Last Comic Standing, The Guys Choice Awards and caught the attention of Steven Spielberg, who signed on to executive produce Dan’s one hour concert special “The Dan Band: I Am Woman,” directed by McG.

Description:

The Four Tops’ first Motown hit, “Baby I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars and their sixties track record on the label is indispensable to any retrospective of the decade. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes. “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown’s longest-running chart toppers; it was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, “It’s The Same Old Song” (no. 2 R&B/no. 5 pop). Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy: the no. 1 “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing In The Shadows Of Love” (no. 2 R&B/no. 6 pop) and “Bernadette” (no. 3 R&B/no. 4 pop)—an extraordinary run of instant H-D-H classics. Other Tops hits from the decade included “Ask The Lonely,” “Shake Me, Wake Me (When It’s Over),” “Something About You,” “You Keep Running Away,” “7-Rooms Of Gloom” and their covers of “Walk Away Renee” and “If I Were A Carpenter.” The group was also extraordinarily popular in the U.K.

When Motown left Detroit in 1972 to move to Los Angeles, the steadfast Tops decided to stay at home, and with another label. They kept up a string of hits with ABC-Dunhill for the next few years: “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got),” a Top 5 hit; the Top 10 “Keeper Of The Castle”; and the R&B Top 10’s “Are You Man Enough (from the movie Shaft In Africa),” “Sweet Understanding Love,” “One Chain Don’t Make No Prison” (later covered by Santana), “Midnight Flower” and the disco perennial “Catfish.”

Description:

Chubby Checker had the #1 song of the Sixties and is the only artist to have a song go to #1 twice with "The Twist." He had the first Platinum record and the first Rock & Roll Grammy with "Let's Twist Again." He is also the only artist to have nine double-sided hits, and the only artist to have five albums in the top 12 at the same time. With over fifty years in the music industry, he even had a #1 dance track in Billboard, in 2007 with his original song, "Knock Down the Walls." Chubby Checker has sold an amazing 250,000,000 records over the years. From Woodstock to the 21st century, artists and fans express themselves in a fashion that Chubby first presented to a national audience on American Bandstand in 1960.  That's the reason why Dick Clark said, "The three most important things that ever happened in the music industry are Elvis Presley, the Beatles, and Chubby Checker."

Her hits continue to be as unforgettable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Pat emerged, fearless, fighting and forging a path for other female rock stars around the world.

 

Neil “Spyder” James Giraldo has been a professional musician, producer, arranger and songwriter for over four decades now, changing the face of the pop charts throughout the 1980s with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar.  More than just an explosive guitar player, Giraldo’s innovative vision helped him create the signature Benatar sound, from its inception.  His impressive back catalog includes more than 100 songs written, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar, as well as many hits he helped create for John Waite, Rick Springfield (#1 Grammy-winning classic “Jessie’s Girl” and Top 10 hit “I’ve Done Everything for You” included), Kenny Loggins (Top 20 hit “Don’t Fight it” – also Grammy-nominated), Steve Forbert, The Del Lords, Beth Hart and countless others.
