Red Wind Newsletter March 2015

CLUB RED SPOTLIGHT The Club Red Spotlight is pleased to profile Kenny, a.k.a. “Jake Blues” from Blues Power Revue, a tribute to the Blues Brothers. Kenny is a musician and independent rental owner here in the Puget Sound area. He was born in Jamestown, ND and raised in Vancouver, WA. He now lives in Tacoma with his beautiful wife ofv 16 years, Beverly. Kenny and Beverly have a family of seven children and five grandchildren. Kenny first started his career in Las Vegas at the Golden Nugget Gambling Hall, and performed at the MGM Grand Opening event in 1974. He worked with many entertainment icons including Joan Rivers, Vic Damone and The Fabulous Fabian. In the 1980s, Kenny ventured back to the Northwest and started the New Blues Brothers Band; their first gig was in 1985 at the Puyallup Fair. Since then, they’ve played at several local fairs, clubs and casinos in the Puget Sound area, including as backup for Chuck Berry in 1987. The band played in front of thousands for the first inaugural event at the Gorge Amphitheater, and in 1990 played backup with Bo Diddley at the Seattle Center Coliseum at the USA Goodwill Games. $54,000 LEPRECHAUN’S GOLD Ever take gold from a leprechaun before? Want to? The New Blues Brother Band was also the house band for the Seahawks from 1992 to 1995. Their band played regularly at the old Kingdome during Seahawks games at halftimes, timeouts and during commercials. In addition, the band was requested to perform during dance routines for the Sea Gals. Over the years, Kenny has had many opportunities to perform with recording artists including the Little River Band and rock and roll pioneers Little Richard and Bachman-Turner Overdrive. He also took the stage with Jim Belushi performing for deploying troops at Ft. Lewis Army Base. Kenny still performs in the area with his bandmates in Blues Power Revue, Michael, David, Gary, Stacy, Teddy, Andy and Mitch. As Kenny honors music legends, it’s an honor to have Kenny and his wife Beverly here with us at Nisqually Red Wind Casino. It’s always a pleasure to see them and to enjoy the stories they have shared with us over the years, as they live a life filled with excitement and entertainment. ROLLOVER RICHES Roll in on Saturdays and roll out with $1,500 or more. ST. PATRICK’S DAY DINING Eat like an Irishman. So potatoes and cabbage, essentially.
