Chuck Negron saves the day

20 June 2008

EMMETSBURG, Iowa -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Three Dog Night, the famed band from the 1960s and 1970s, was scheduled to perform here at the Wild Rose Casino & Resort as well as in Cedar Rapids this week. The band cancelled as a result of the flooding in Eastern Iowa, leaving Wild Rose without much notice or a headliner.

Enter Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, who incidentally was the lead singer on the hit, "The Show Must Go On" saved the day. Negron will perform an outdoor concert Friday night, June 20, at 8 p.m. Tickets are still available. The gates open at 6 p.m. As part of the event, the Palo Alto County Cattlemen's Association is selling steak sandwiches and beef burgers.

"We feel very fortunate to have such a great artist step up at the last minute to make this a great event and show," said Amy Williams, general manager of Wild Rose Emmetsburg.

Wild Rose Casino & Resort in Emmetsburg is destination gaming and entertainment venue. Since opening in June 2006, Wild Rose has hosted numerous music artists as well as other events. In addition to offering a complete gaming experience with 530 slots and 17 table games, the resort features a 70-room hotel and RV park.
