- Jack Russell’s Great White – Jan. 3 at 8:00 p.m.
- California native Jack Russell is a rock vocalist and songwriter, and a founding member of early-80s hard rock radio staples Great White. Great White hit it big in 1987 with their third LP, Once Bitten…, which featured the hit single “Rock Me,” and again in 1989 with …Twice Shy, which included their chart-topping cover of Ian Hunter’s “Once Bitten Twice Shy.” Russell left the group in 1996 to pursue a solo career, and released Shelter Me in 1999 via MVP Records. Russell begin touring under the name Jack Russell’s Great White. In 2017, the band released its debut studio album, He Saw It Comin’, via Frontiers Records and tours all around the country today.

Other big hits include “Woman Woman,” “Lady Willpower,” and “Over You.” Gary and the UGP perform to sold out crowds doing over 150 performances a year. Don’t miss their exciting return to the Golden Nugget Las Vegas!
- Ambrosia – Jan. 17 at 8:00 p.m.
- Los Angeles quartet Ambrosia, whose founding members included guitarist/vocalist David Pack, bassist/vocalist Joe Puerta, keyboardist Christopher North, and drummer Burleigh Drummond, fused symphonic art rock with a slickly produced pop sound. The group was discovered in 1971 by Los Angeles Philharmonic conductor Zubin Mehta, who featured Ambrosia as part of a so-called All-American Dream Concert. Their first record, Ambrosia, was released in 1975 and spawned the chart singles “Holdin’ on to Yesterday” and “Nice, Nice, Very Nice.” Ambrosia followed this success in 1980 with another number three hit, “Biggest Part of Me,” and the number 13 follow-up, “You’re the Only Woman.”
- The Cowsills – Jan. 24 at 8:00 p.m.
- The real-life inspiration behind the hit television series, The Partridge Family, The Cowsills were one of the biggest pop acts of the late 60s. They were distinguished by their angelic harmonies and sun-kissed melodies. The group’s origins lie with brothers Bill and Bob, who as children began their singing careers covering Everly Brothers hits. Upon signing with MGM in 1967, The Cowsills with their lineup now numbering seven (brother Paul, sister Susan and mother Barbara joining the original four) had their first million-selling single, “The Rain, the Park and Other Things.” “Indian Lake” and “We Can Fly” followed in the summer and in 1969 they had their biggest hit, the multi-million selling title song from the musical “Hair.” Today, the remaining members of The Cowsills tour and perform together and their harmonies are still as infectious and bright as ever.
- The Grass Roots – Jan. 31 at 8:00 p.m.
- The Grass Roots had a series of major hits – most notably “Let’s Live for Today,” “Midnight Confessions,” “Temptation Eyes,” and “Two Divided by Love” – that help define the essence of the era’s best radio. The Grass Roots managed to chart 14 Top 40 hits, including seven gold singles and one platinum single, and had two hit collections that effortlessly went gold.
