The five-concert series this summer has run the gamut of musical styles from the laid back, beachy tunes of Jimmy Buffet presented by the Stinson Brothers to the flashy musical stylings of Zowie Bowie, the nerdy Spazmatics and the power ballad tunes of Lights, a Journey tribute band.

Saturday’s concert will highlight classic arena rock as the popular Las Vegas staple Yellow Brick Road graces the stage.

“They are one of the top bands in Vegas,” Christian Adderson, corporate sales manager for Mesquite Gaming, said. “They play all the casinos and they have a good reputation … they are a high-demand band.”

Formed in 1997, according to their bio Web page, Yellow Brick Road got its original start as an Elton John tribute band but quickly found that it was their classic rock tunes that were getting the most attention.

Today they play music from Kansas, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and more as they do show after show for their large fan base.

“They never disappoint as far as music and entertainment,” Adderson said.

Saturday’s concert will kick off with doors opening to the pool area at 7 p.m. and DJ Jimmy Z will get the music flowing and crowd warmed up before Yellow Brick Road takes the stage at 8 p.m.

Casapoolooza 2015

This year’s season of concerts by the pool has brought in record crowds, Adderson said, as thousands of people have come to enjoy high-quality entertainment in an almost unbeatable venue.

“You can’t find a cooler place to watch live music,” Adderson said. “You can chill in the pool or in a lounge chair or go dance to the band; you just can’t beat the atmosphere.”

Overall, the season, which kicked off in May, was a success, Adderson said, and they hope to end it with one last hurrah Saturday.

“It has been another great year,” Adderson said. “We can’t wait to see you in 2016.”

Mesquite Gaming Entertainment and Event Coordinator Krissy Ayon said:

Although the Casapoolooza season  is coming to a close, the CasaBlanca will continue to offer a wide variety of live entertainment throughout the fall in the showroom. You can look forward to some big Vegas headliners, the Southern Nevada Symphony Orchestra, more great selections of “In It’s Entirety” concert series, top tribute bands and great comedy.

The  final Casapoolooza concert falls during the Labor Day holiday weekend. With 500 rooms, world class golf, spa and dining amenities and a free concert, the CasaBlanca Resort and Casino is an ideal place to spend the end of summer.
