Ray Reynolds & the Country Time Band

Friday & Saturday
January 12th & 13th
9:00 pm–1:30 am
Country Time is a vision that started before I even knew it was there. From the time I was a little boy watching my daddy play guitar. I was set in the path of music for life. All I ever had passion for at that point was some day playing music full time and singing all the songs that I love dearly.
All members have a very long history of music. As for myself, country music has always been a part of my life. My father, Raymond A Reynolds Sr, was a guitar player and singer whom performed all over the valley and foothills. He taught me how to play guitar, sing, and write music well.
To this day, I too, have performed all around the valley and foothills for the last 24 years. I love country music and blues with some old time rock (my father’s favorite style to play). I’m inspired by artists such as Richie Valens, Buddy Holly, as well as many other great country music artists.

Eastern Ways Lion Dancers

Friday
February 16th – Chinese New Year!
On the Casino Floor!

6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Lion Dance is one of China’s oldest and most unique cultural arts. Exciting to watch and difficult to perform, lion dance captivate audiences of all ages. Lion dancing requires coordination between 2 performers: the Head and the Tail.
The Head controls the movements of the lion head: the eyes, the mouth, the ears. The Head also raises the lion up and lowers it down. This makes the Head responsible for most of the expression of the lion and for directing the Tail.
The Tail controls the movements of the body, making the lion look alive and animated. The Tail also has to be very strong, in order to maintain the Tail position throughout a performance. When the lion is doing jumps or lifts, the Tail has to be able to lift the Head and hold her upright.
To prepare for the lion dance, performers have to practice the lion dance regularly. In traditional Southern Shaolin Kung Fu, lion dancing provided an excellent way to condition the body and improve flexibility and strength. At Eastern Ways, lion dancers are all Kung Fu students, keeping this tradition alive.
