Geneva

March 24 & 25, 8 p.m. - midnight

Geneva Keene is not just another pretty face. As the lead singer of the band she has a voice that will command your attention.  Her vocal range brings back memories of singers like Rob Halford, Stevie Nicks and so many others.  The band behind her is awesome as well, from Dwayne’s head banging drums to the low chest shaking “in your face” bass guitar of “Dick Thunder” to Phil Crash Facchini’s ‘80s style virtuoso guitar solos. All the elements of a great metal show are there. Geneva even has a great acoustic performance.  Whether you are an ‘80s metal fan, or just tired of the same old stuff, you will be impressed with this band!

Allstar Comedy Revue

April 8, 8pm

Don’t miss this all-star night of comedy courtesy of four all-star comics. Headliner Chris Shaw is joined by Frank Roche, Courtney Baka and Bob Larson for an evening of side-splitting comedy. Best of all the show is free.

 

Unusual? Always. Predictable? Never. Hilarious? Definitely!

Comedian Chris Shaw comes to town bringing his bouncy, cleverly physical style, and shows how this national headliner has become a crowd favorite! While placing his faith in observation, agility and wit, Shaw draws his audiences in through bizarre metaphors and hilarious facial expressions, bringing the crowd along for the ride…only to send them into unsuspecting comedy waters.

Catch this frequent cable performer for a side-splitting evening of funny business.


Frank Roche from Detroit is one of the most high-energy acts on the comedy circuit today. Fusing rapid-fire antics with dead-on celebrity impressions keeps the audience laughing. He has performed at some of the best comedy clubs and venues throughout the country. From LA to New York, Toronto to the Florida Keys. You won’t want to miss Roche’s show!

Courtney Baka is a Minneapolis-based comedian that walks the line between sincerity and silliness. With her dry wit and unique perspective she attacks real life situations with a creative spin. Covering such topics as the merits of dying alone, drug induced education and refusing to grow up, she finds humor in the less than pleasant aspects of the human experience. She has studied at Huge Theater in Minneapolis and The Second City In Chicago and is currently a contributor for The Hard Times.

Born in Duluth, Minnesota, Bob has been headlining comedy clubs across the country since 1986. Born with a sense of humor, it was only a matter of time before the thought of show business entered his mind – about 32 years.

In the meantime, Bob had a varied work experience. He definitely had a blue-collar background. He worked hard for his money and his work ethic shows in his comic performances. He worked his way through college as a lumberjack, and a stock-boy. After college, he was a millwright mechanic for 8 years at a coal dock on Lake Superior. He also was a bartender, exterminator, security guard at a ski lodge, heavy equipment mechanic, owner of his own card shop (where he designed and produced the inventory), worked in concrete and masonry construction and was part-owner of the Minnesota Comedy Club in Maplewood, Minnesota.

Larson’s 6′ 2″ frame eventually found him competing for toughman titles in the U.S. and Canada. He made international finals twice! Bob devoted 16 years of his life to the practice of Wing Chun Kung Fu. 12 of these years he taught this martial art. He traveled to the China towns of Toronto and New York; also to Japan and Hong Kong to fight their champions in their underground arenas. At one time, Bob was rated 6th in the world!

With his varied work experience and his passion for the martial arts, challenges and confrontations are welcome in Bob’s world. That’s why, with his years of experience in comedy and his gift of wit, the ability to think quick on his feet, and a great sense of humor, Hecklefest™ and Bob go hand in hand.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

The Clairvoyants

April 14, 9pm

Experience the magic and illusion of The Clairvoyants, direct from America’s Got Talent. Showtime is 9pm. Doors open at 8pm.  General admission is $20. VIP seating is $35. Tickets available online at tempotickets.com/stcroixcasinos or at the casino at the TLC Players Club booth.

Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten are “The Clairvoyants.” They were both born and raised in Austria and now reside in Austria and America.

When they met in October 2011, they began to develop their “second sight” act, and two months later brought it on stage for the first time. Within a year they had developed a full length show. Shortly thereafter, they started touring Europe.

In 2014, they received their first long term contract in America. They performed in the show “The Illusionarium,” by Jeff Hobson. A theatre was specially built for this show on the cruise ship “Norwegian Getaway.”

After a six-month run in “The Illusionarium,” they were offered a featured spot in the largest touring magic show in the world, “The Illusionists,” produced by Simon Painter. As part of the brand new show “The Illusionists 1903,” they toured Australia, Mexico and the Middle East. They continued on with “The Illusionists 2.0” and “The Illusionists-Live from Broadway”.

A highlight of their career was the opportunity to perform their show at the Sydney Opera House. This upcoming winter they will experience another career highlight, appearing on the show “The Illusionists – Turn of the Century” in the Palace theatre in New York City, on Broadway.

In 2016, they decided to take part in the biggest talent show in the world, “America’s Got Talent.” After four months, six different performances and over 100.000 contestants, America voted them second place.

Van Tass and Ten were awarded “The German Champions of Mentalism,” “Magicians of the Year 2015,” and, also in 2015, were enthusiastically chosen as the “World Champions of Mentalism,” a prize that hasn’t been awarded in 30 years.
