Baccarat Hall of Fame Member kachatz1 Posted August 6, 2017 Baccarat Hall of Fame Member Report Share Posted August 6, 2017 OK, have to tell you a good story happened last night...it's true, and I wish you were there... As a prelude, you often find I will " inter-mingle" tidbits/parts of movies, songs, childhood fairy tales, comedians, etc. into their relationship with baccarat/ casino table games , and ways to " look at the games". - Often? Sometimes? ( are you kidding me??) So anyways, here's a funny one happened last night. Pretty much every band, solo performer, musician who has ever had any success last 70 years passes through Vegas...often once a year, or if they are still around, still can draw in the crowds, they establish what is known as a " residency" , and play a few weeks, a few months, a few years at one of the many, many showrooms/ nightclubs in Las Vegas Well, since unfortunately many of them no longer " tour" , or the bands have been disbanded, at some point the party is over... EXCEPT Next up are the " tribute bands" , who do their best to emulate the style, the " look" , the vocals of the original bands, and now they go on tour and play the original band's songs,....many of them with surprising similarities to the " originals" , and some decent success. And yes, they also come to Vegas... So last several weeks, have seen Queen ( still two original members perform, Led Zeppelin tribute band , and last night The Bee Gees tribute band , who played at a casino called The Cannery, in North Las Vegas ( out near Nellis Air Force base) . What, pray-tell, does any of this have to do with casino table games??? ( Just so I don't get timed-out ...or thrown out... I'll break this into a few segments...Read the next post, and I'll tell you...) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
