Miami, Fla. – February 25, 2019 – Magic City Casino is proud to present a festive oldies concert with the legendary Chubby Checker, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees Mary Wilson of The Supremes and Martha Reeves & The Vandellas on Saturday, March 23 (7 p.m.) at the Magic City Amphitheater.
“Warm up the jukebox and come ready to cut a rug with a star-studded musical lineup including ‘The Twist King’ Chubby Checker, Motown diva Mary Wilson of the Supremes and R & B royalty Martha Reeves & The Vandellas,” said Scott Savin, Chief Operating Officer at Magic City Casino. “This is a rare opportunity to hear timeless golden hits performed live in one of South Florida’s premiere outdoor concert venues. This concert will bring a smile to your face and a swing to your hips.”
Rock and dance icon Chubby Checker kickstarted a dance revolution with the sensational anthem “The Twist.” Checker’s version of “The Twist” reached the coveted No. 1 Billboard spot in September 1960 and in January 1962. The single became the first and only song to attain that ranking in two different years. The record was inducted into The Recording Academy’s Grammy Hall of Fame in 2000. Checker’s other hits include the celebratory “Limbo Rock,” “Pony Time” and “The Fly.”
Motown vocalist Mary Wilson is a founding member of one of the world’s most famous female vocal trios, The Supremes. The group recorded 12 No. 1 hits from 1964 to 1969, including “Baby Love,” “Come See About Me,” “You Can’t Hurry Love” and the rousing “Stop! In the Name of Love.” Wilson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988.
Martha Reeves & The Vandellas scored more than a dozen hit singles, including “Jimmy Mack,” “Nowhere to Run,” “(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave” and their signature “Dancing In The Street.” “(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave” became a phenomenon, selling more than a million copies and earning the group a Grammy Award nomination for best R & B vocal performance by a duo or group. In 1995, the trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The show is open to all ages. Tickets start at $25. VIP tables are available for $500 and include seating for four. Tickets can be purchased online at www.magiccitycasino.com or by calling 844-234-SHOW.
