Kool & The Gang, ZZ Top to play Harrah’s

Written by 

Funk group Kool & The Gang and rock band ZZ Top will perform at Harrah’s Cherokee Event Center.

Kool & The Gang performs at 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 29. The group has sold over 70 million albums worldwide and influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like “Celebration,” “Cherish,” and “Jungle Boogie,” they’ve earned two Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, and 31 gold and platinum albums. Their bulletproof funk and tough, jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time. Tickets are $32, $42 and $53.

Longtime rockers ZZ Top bring 2013 to a close with a concert at 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve. The group lays an undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact. In 2004, the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with more than 40 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio. Their hits include “Tush,” “Sharp Dressed Man,” “Legs” and “Cheap Sunglasses.” Tickets are $65, $75 and $100.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
