Live Music Is Back at Casino Arizona

By Chris Picciuolo

Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Enterprise Casino Arizona announced the return of live music in the Showroom for its guests.

The music kicked off on July 30 and 31 with the scorching rock ’n’ roll tribute band Led Zepagain, a tribute to Led Zeppelin. On August 6 and 7, The Pat Benatar Experience will pay tribute to four-time Grammy Award winner Pat Benatar. Then, on August 13 and 14, Van Halen tribute band Fan Halen is scheduled to bring the house down with their high-energy rock music.

“Live music has always played an essential part in our offerings at Casino Arizona,” said Ramon Martinez, director of public relations for Casino Arizona. “From our Showstoppers Live! show many years ago to the headliners who have performed here to the tribute bands we have today, Casino Arizona has always been a perfect place for a night out on the town where you could grab dinner, see a show and enjoy the casino. We could not be more excited to get back to that.”

Martinez said that the health and safety of guests and employees has been the casino’s priority throughout the pandemic.

“We have followed directives from the state and the [tribal] Council. We have also continued to monitor guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As policies have begun to ease across the country, we have followed suit. However, we continue to ask that people who are not fully vaccinated wear a mask while at Casino Arizona and Talking Stick Resort.”

Both properties continue to be 100% non-smoking facilities.

Talking Stick Resort is also welcoming back live music in its restaurants and lounges, and headliners will return in August. King Crimson is scheduled for August 7 and Cheap Trick on August 14.

“As we work to resume full operations, we are looking to fill a number of positions throughout Casino Arizona and Talking Stick Resort. We encourage any Community members with any interest in hospitality or gaming to explore all the exciting job opportunities available,” said Martinez.
