Discover Musical Greatness: Soul City Band at the Montreal Casino

Our very own Montreal casino will host a free concert featuring the great performing group Soul City Band.  Mark your calendar because you’ve never celebrated New Year’s Eve in this manner before!   The concert is free and begins at 9:00 pm so you’ll ring in the New Year reminiscing, toe tapping, dancing, and singing along to the biggest hits from the swing era to the present.  Oh, there might also be some alcohol so the little ones (under 18) won’t be admitted!  This is sure to be one of the most talked about Quebec casino events of this or any year.

Boston Comes to Montreal

Soul City Band is based in Boston.  It has a wide following throughout New England and Eastern Canada even though they decline to hype themselves.  Their popularity stems from genuine musical excellence and gleeful word of mouth acclimation from their thousands of fans.  The group features eight musicians and both a male and a female vocalist.  The musicians play drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, tenor sax, baritone sax, trombone, and trumpet.  They all have formal musical training from schools of music, conservatories, and long experience playing in various other bands.

Tremendous Camaraderie

The fun the band members have playing as a unit comes through in their rapport with each other and the rapport they create with their audiences.  Most of the band’s gigs are out of the mainstream for bands looking to build a big name for themselves.  In addition to casino shows, Soul City Band plays many small venues such as corporate events, private parties, and weddings.

Hundreds of Musical Treats

The song list has a couple of hundred entries covering an eclectic range of song styles from reggae to swing to 1950’s blues to modern pop.  The band plays as many audience requests as they can.  Every audience from the buttoned down corporate types to the millennials who may have never heard a soulful jazz or swing classic end up uninhibitedly dancing and grooving.

Soul City Band will play in the Cabaret with over 800 seats.  Corporations or private groups can also rent the Cabaret space for events or parties.  Many private groups sponsor their own Quebec casino event at the Cabaret.  The hall is a state of the art music venue with extraordinary acoustics, comfortable seating, and a dance floor that can accommodate hundreds.

Shows at the Casino

The Montreal casino offers weekly free shows and the shows that do cost money are very reasonably priced.  The casino also has a continuous stream of great promotions.  Beginning on January 1 and continuing for four full months, the casino will offer a Winter Sweet Package Deal.

More Than Just Shows

The casino features 3000 slot machines, sponsors many tournaments, has nine progressive jackpots worth six or seven figures, and all the classic table games plus Sic Bo and Pai Gow.

Before or after one of the many casino shows, you’ll likely be a bit hungry.  The Montreal casino has five excellent restaurant headed by L’Atelier featuring world renowned master chef Joel Robuchon.  At the other restaurants you can delight your palate with a gourmet buffet, seafood and grill, pates and deli fare, and a make-your-own menu.  When you’ve finished your top-level repast, you can venture on to one of the casino’s three bars.   The term bar does not do service to the amazing experience you’ll have there.  You may enjoy a quiet cocktail or dance endlessly at Valet de Carreau which features unique and somewhat offbeat entertainment.

The Zone is where you can immerse yourself in the world of casino gaming.  Here the term gaming is extremely appropriate.  The casino is far from a place where people quietly feed machines.  Every game, every step of the way is an integrated entertaining experience.  The casino also has many portals through which you can play with your friends.  The casino simply does everything to make your gaming and gambling time as enjoyable as pure entertainment as possible.

If sport betting is your favourite gaming activity, you can partake of it at the casino.  You can play over 175 games online including poker, bingo, lotteries, and more.
