George Gee Orchestra with John Dokes Set for Las Vegas' Suncoast Showroom, 2/1
Music by the George Gee Orchestra elegantly balances genuine traditions with exhilarating modernism. This versatile ensemble performs everything from a sweet foxtrot ballad to rock and soul party favorites and all-out rollickin' roadhouse boogie.
Gee is considered the world's only Chinese-American swing big bandleader, offering a unique cross-cultural perspective. The Orchestra played at Ozzy Osbourne's 50th birthday party in Beverly Hills, was the first modern-era swing band welcomed from the West to perform at a swing dance event in Japan and Quincy Jones arranged for the band to perform for the Royal Family of Jordan.
Featured Vocalist for the George Gee Orchestra, John Dokes first came to prominence as a championship lindy hopper in New York. Dokes is an accomplished baritone, singing a mixture of blues, ballads, popular songs and jazz standards.
For one special night only, the Suncoast Showroom will feature dance floor space from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $15.95, plus tax and convenience fees and the event is general admission. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.636.7075, or visiting www.suncoastcasino.com.
