BLIND MELON BRINGS THE 90’s BACK
Mount Pocono PA – February 16, 2013– Mount Airy Casino Resort welcomes one of the biggest acts to ever hit their stage, Blind Melon. Playing at Gypsies Lounge and Nightclub on Saturday February 16 at 8PM, tickets are $55/$40 and can be purchased in advance at mountairycasino.com or by calling 1-866-468-7619.
Formed in 1990, Blind Melon is a neo-psychedelic band who topped the charts with multiple albums and hits like “No Rain.”
Whereas most up-and-coming alternative bands of the early ’90s borrowed from the leaders of the pack (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, etc.), Blind Melon were an exception to the rule — their roots lay in classic rock (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin).
Although the band took an indefinite split in 1998, in 2006, Blind Melon surprised fans by announcing that they were reuniting, with new singer Travis Warren in tow. The group’s first new studio effort in nearly 13 years, For My Friends, followed in April 2008.
“With their very distinct sound, every guest here will definitely not walk away saying that their life ‘is pretty plain,” says John Culetsu, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Mount Airy Casino Resort.
