Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa
I want my New Year’s Eve! Step back to the 80s and party like a video star on December 31st at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage. Ring in the New Year big time this year at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa.  Watch your favorite 80s music videos all night long, with party favors aplenty to help you celebrate in style, and don’t miss the Top 20 Countdown to $25,000 Cash on the casino floor. Plus, Huey Lewis and The News live on stage in The Show.
Live at The Show on New Year’s Eve, it’s Huey Lewis and The News. Celebrate MTV-style all night at the most amped up party in the Coachella Valley. Huey Lewis and The News are truly one of America’s great rock ‘n’ roll bands. As they enter their 36th year together, their contagious brand of music has outlasted countless trends, and is as fresh today as ever. Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, they continue to thrill audiences worldwide, selling over 20 million albums in the process, earning them the right to mark their place on the pop history map.
These Grammy Award winners have written and performed such classic Top Ten Hits as “Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Stuck With You,” “If This Is It,” “Hip To Be Square,” “Do You Believe In Love” and “Workin’ For A Livin.” The group also wrote and performed “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” for the hit film Back To The Future. “The Power of Love,” nominated for an Academy Award, went to #1 on Billboard’s singles chart, and was a smash hit worldwide. As great a recording career as the band has had, there is something extra special about a Huey Lewis & The News live show. They incorporate a variety of musical influences including R&B and soul to create their own unique sound.
Front man Huey Lewis’ unmistakable voice has a rich, textured quality that lends itself well to not just their hits, but also to the variety of other songs featured in the show. Lewis also brings some bluesy tones to the performance when he breaks out into his harmonica solos. One of the highlights of the show is their a cappella rendition of early rock n’ roll classics such as “It’s Alright”, “Little Bitty Pretty One” and “Sixty Minute Man.” Huey Lewis & The News are: Huey Lewis (vocals and harmonica), Johnny Colla (saxophone, guitar and vocals), Bill Gibson (drums, percussion and vocals), Sean Hopper (keyboards and vocals), Stef Burns (guitars and vocals) and John Pierce (bass). The live show features their long time horn section of San Francisco bay area luminaries: Rob Sudduth (tenor saxophone), Marvin McFadden (trumpet), and Johnnie Bamont (baritone saxophone).
Huey Lewis and The News take the stage in The Show at 10:30 p.m. Tickets on sale online at or call (800) 585-3737.

“Party goers welcoming the New Year at Spa Resort Casino’s first annual Countdown in downtown Palm Springs.”

Spa Resort Casino – together with community partners including Alpha Media along with the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, Eisenhower Medical Center and PS Resorts – is gearing up for a second annual New Year’s celebration to rival Times Square. The block party has something for everyone whether you celebrate New Year’s by east or west coast time.
For those who celebrate early, the event is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. and will broadcast the east coast Times Square celebration live on a giant digital display at 9 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by DJ Dense, noted Los Angeles DJ and Music Director for the LA Clippers, with plenty of room to dance. Local area restaurants and merchants will set up along a retail section of the party, which includes a full bar garden for the entire evening.
Late night party goers will enjoy 70s disco sensation Village People as they take over the entertainment at 10:30 p.m. with a staged concert.  The open-air concert venue features ticketed seating for the concert and main event – a multi-media New Year’s Eve 2017 countdown celebration, Palm Springs style.
The outdoor block party is located on either side of E. Andreas from N. Indian Canyon to Calle Encilia, just across the street from Spa Resort Casino, a popular space for outdoor concerts.  The event is free to the public, with limited seating for purchase to the concert and midnight celebration; however, all events are viewable for free across the event area.
General admission seating is $35.  A premier VIP package is available for $75 and includes premium seating for the concert and access to the VIP lounge area along with two complimentary drinks, light hors d’oeuvres, commemorative NYE lapel pin and party favors.
