"Mack & Tom" continue in the Carson Valley Inn's Cabaret Lounge through October 12, "Rolland Dempsey" returns October 14 – 19, "Naked City" appears October 21 – 26 and Monday Night Football takes over the Inn's Cabaret Lounge every Monday. Cabaret Lounge live entertainment is presented with no cover and no minimum in 45-minute shows starting at 7:30, 8:30, 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30 p.m.
"Mack & Tom" play classic rock 'n' roll from the 50s through the 80s plus contemporary tunes. The group consists of Bruce McCormack on keyboards and vocals and Tom Dickson on guitar and vocals. The two artists have been playing together for over 10 years, many of them as part of the backup band for Louie Fontaine and The Rockets until Louie decided to retire.
"Rolland Dempsey" and his band present an exciting mix of rhythm & blues, soul and contemporary pop music. Rolland possesses a voice with an uncanny range and flawless tone that, when mixed with a winning stage presence and a mastery of the congas, produces a highly entertaining show. Joining Rolland on stage are Joel Edwards – “sax symbol" of the group, Gary Douglas – bass and vocals, Kevin Tokarz – keyboardist extraordinaire and vocals, and Brian Jenkins – timekeeper (drummer).
Jo and Tony Hoover are "Naked City," a high-energy duo with an eclectic repertoire of popular music from the 50s through the new millennium. Both Jo and Tony are excellent vocalists and multi-talented instrumentalists on bass, guitar, keyboards and percussion.
NFL and College football and other sports action is plentiful at the Carson Valley Inn with 4 plasma screens and a giant pull-down screen in the Cabaret Lounge plus additional TVs in the casino and in Fiona's Bar.
