Mohegan Sun

Over the weekend of December 6-7, Overboard had the pleasure of performing for the High Rollers Club at the Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, CT.  While none of us can claim to be talented at “playing the odds,” we did have a great time singing songs from Tidings, as well as a few of our other holiday favorites.

Arriving early Saturday, within a few hours we were up on stage entertaining the audience with songs like “We Three Kings,” “Baby Please Come Home” and “Silver Bells” in a room that was legitimately as large as a football field.  Sunday afforded a smaller room, complete with human statues that would on a whim casually turn around and point at us.  I for one thought statues didn’t move, but apparently the ones at Mohegan Sun think they’re better than that.

This casino had pulled out all the stops.  I mean, where else can you get Ben & Jerry’s while listening to the harmonious cacophony of slot machines, followed by dinner under an indoor waterfall?  I mean, besides Niagara.  It was truly one of our more entertaining gigs, and though being inside did throw off our internal clocks (everything is open all night?!), we had an excellent time going to what is unquestionably one of New England’s biggest hot spots.

It was an outstanding opportunity and we thank Mohegan for having us.
