Casino Rama concerts for 2022

The Canadian pop-rock band Chilliwack joins Winnipeg band Streetheart for a night of classics. These bands from the 70s haven’t changed one bit – still spunky, wild, and just how you remember their big rock sound. Songs like Whatcha Gonna Do from Chilliwack, and Look in Your Eyes from Streetheart are songs you won’t want to miss seeing live.
The Irish Rovers: Wasn’t that a Party – TBA
This group of Irish musicians got together in Toronto in 1963 and decided to form a band named after the traditional song, The Irish Rover. Today, the band is best remembered for their hugely successful international television series, which contributed to the popularization of Irish Music in North America. Popular songs they’ll be playing at Casino Rama include the hits The Unicorn, Drunken Sailor, Wasn’t That a Party… and many more.
Bill Engvall – TBA
Grammy nominated, multi-platinum selling recording artist and one of the top comedians in North America, Bill Engvall makes a welcome return to Casino Rama. Engvall is well-known for his stand–up comedy, as well as for having been featured on shows such as ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and the animated comedy series Bounty Hunters.
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons – TBA
In 1960 the band known as the Four Lovers evolved and became the ever-loved Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.Classic songs we all know include the theme from the hit movie Grease. This is surely a show that you don’t want to miss.
Ice Cube – TBA
Widely regarded as one of the most important figures in rap history, Ice Cube began his career two decades ago with NWA. After penning some of the most memorable lyrics on groundbreaking tracks like Straight Outta Compton, Ice Cube broke away at the height of the group’s success to launch his solo career.
Jake Owen – TBA
Multiple chart-topping singer / songwriter Jake Owen’s new single, Down To The Honkytonk, is rapidly climbing the Billboard Country Airplay charts. With seven #1 songs to his name, Owen’s tunes have resonated with listeners and audiences everywhere.
Celtic Woman – TBA
Back in Orillia to celebrate their 16th anniversary, Celtic Woman promises to be another sell-out show in Casino Rama. Expect this to be an incredible musical celebration of their very favourite songs from the journey so far.
The Beach Boys – TBA
Formed in Hawthorne California way back in 1961, the Beach Boys are back! Hitting the stage at Casino Rama are members of the group’s original lineup, here to perform such memorable hits as Surfer Girl, I Get Around, Surfin’ USA, Good Vibrations, and Kokomo.
Melissa Etheridge: The Medicine Tour – TBA
Melissa Lou Etheridge is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, and activist. Her self-titled debut album, Melissa Etheridge, was released in 1988 and became an underground success. The rest, as they say, is history…
