World's premier Prince tribute band to perform at del Lago

22 May 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- del Lago Resort & Casino is pleased to announce three upcoming shows at The Vine. The world's premier Prince tribute band, Chase & Ovation, will perform 1 July, the Temptations on 15 July and the Commodores on 12 August. Tickets for all three shows go on sale at noon Friday, 26 May, and may be purchased in person at the del Lago Resort & Casino box office, by calling the box office at 315-946-1695 or by visiting the website.

Hailing from Prince's hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Chase & Ovation has performed a monthly concert for the past six years at Prince's favorite hometown/local live music venue, Bunkers Music Bar. Chase & Ovation is frequently joined on stage by many of Prince's former band mates. The high-energy, musically perfected, action-packed "salute" to the music of Prince has captivated audiences across America for more than 10 years. Chase & Ovation will perform hits from the early years, along with tributes to "The Time," "Sheila E." and a journey through some of music's greatest history.

The Temptations are the Emperors of Soul. Their unique blend of voices and blade-sharp choreography — "The Temptation Walk" — is one of the defining legacies of Motown Records. The group has 37 Top 40 hits to their credit, including 15 Top 10 tunes and a quartet that soared to No. 1. On the R&B charts, they have 15 No. 1 singles and 17 No. 1 albums. The titles alone summon memories beyond measure: "The Way You Do the Things You Do," "My Girl," "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," "I Wish It Would Rain," "Cloud Nine," "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)" and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone." For always, the Temptations are sunshine on a cloudy day.

For three decades, the Commodores have remained a force in the music industry. They aren't just any group — they have staying power. Just like their hit song "Brick House," the Commodores have created a foundation that just won't budge. After churning out hit after hit in the Motown days, the band still hadn't achieved Grammy recognition. That wasn't to be until 1986, without Lionel Richie, when the Commodores released "Nightshift."

The group formed in 1968 while all the members were in college at Tuskegee University. After being discovered by Berry Gordy, the Commodores went on to sell over 60 million records for Motown. With hits like "Machine Gun" and "Sail On," the Commodores became proven artists. They proved it then. They proved it in 1986 with "Nightshift," and now they are ready to prove it again. The Commodores haven't rested on their early hits and continue to put out quality work.

Tickets may be purchased for additional upcoming shows already announced at The Vine.
