|Foxwoods Resort Casino, the world’s largest casino, and B.B. King are to open the B.B. King Dance and Nite Clubs. These will feature two adjoining entertainment venues; the larger will offer dancing whilst the smaller will offer jazz, blues and comedy.|
Vice president of entertainment at Foxwoods, Tom Cantone, said, “It’s a logical pairing of the world’s best casino and the top blues artist on the planet. We already offer the most headliner entertainment of any casino in the U.S., and these two clubs will double the number of our existing clubs for the benefit of those who visit Foxwoods to club hop and take in the very best entertainment. In addition to opening the club, B.B. King will play several times a year, jamming with up and coming talent.”
Foxwoods president and CEO Bill Sherlock added, “It’s the first time anything at Foxwoods has carried an outside name. Foxwoods is already synonymous with entertainment in the Northeast, and it’s only appropriate that our first venture be with someone with the star quality of B.B. King. He’s a winner and we’re proud to be associated with him.”
When opened, the clubs will accommodate almost 700 patrons and will offer a combined 13,000 square feet of entertainment space.
