America Performs Greatest Hits at Cannery Casino May 15

April 22, 2010 by  

Folk-rock band America performs at Cannery Casino & Hotel in The Club on Saturday, May 15 at 8 p.m. Incorporating three-part vocal harmonies and acoustic guitar rifts into a blend of folk and rock that has captivated audiences worldwide, America has enjoyed nearly four decades of success and continues entertaining crowds with their classic hits.

Tickets are available now in four levels: Table for four $79.95, Gold $39.95, Prime $24.95 and Reserved $14.95. Tickets can be purchased at the Cannery Casino & Hotel’s ticket sales counter located at the front desk, by calling (702) 507-5757 or online at www.cannerycasinos.com .

America’s debut self-titled album was initially released without the track “A Horse With No Name” and only enjoyed mild success. After performing the song at several festivals to positive audience feedback, the band rereleased the album adding the single and quickly became a household name. The album went platinum and “A Horse With No Name” shot to #1 on the charts followed by the top 10 single, “I Need You.” The group struck gold again with the release of another top 10 hit, “Ventura Highway” from their sophomore album, “Homecoming” and earned a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1972.

Throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, America continued to release hit singles including the #1 track, “Sister Golden Hair,” and top 10 hits, “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “You Can Do Magic.” In 2006, the band was inducted to the Vocal Group Hall of Fame before releasing their latest album “Here & Now,” a compilation of classic America songs and new tracks with guest musicians. Original members Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, along with new musicians, still perform between 100 and 150 concerts a year.
