B.J. Thomas of “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head” Fame to Perform at Cannery Casino on Nov. 14

November 4, 2009 by  

Cannery Casino & Hotel welcomes B.J. Thomas on Saturday, November 14. With classic treasures such as “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head” and “Hooked on a Feeling” audiences are sure to find a timeless song that they’ll remember.

Tickets are just $19.95 and are available at the sales counter located at the front desk. Tickets will also be available for purchase by calling (702) 507-5757 or (866) 999-4899 (toll free), or by visiting www.cannerycasinos.com .

He owns one of the most distinctive voices in American pop music and nothing about the identifiable sound of B.J. Thomas’ voice has changed. Many of B.J.’s signature hits—the Oscar-winning Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head, the million-selling (Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song and his career-igniting cover of Hank Williams’ I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry have endured over time.

After his initial successes on a small Southern label, B.J. signed with New York’s Scepter, where the roster also included Ronnie Milsap and Dionne Warwick. In fact, it was Warwick who introduced B.J. to songwriter-producer Burt Bacharach, leading to his performance of Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head for Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid. The song has shown an amazing resilience—it was featured in Forrest Gump and it made the soundtracks for Clerks II, The In-Laws and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle; and it appeared almost in its entirety during Spider-Man 2.
