Country Music Legend Johnny Lee to Open New Venue at Grand Lake Casino
Grand Lake Casino continues to expand and enhance its Grand Lake facilities with the opening of “The Venue.” which will feature kick-off showcase performance by country superstar Johnny Lee Friday evening, December 30.
“The Venue is the result of a complete remodeling of our bar area in the River Room,” explained Grand Lake Casino General Manager Dusty Logan. “The bar is three times its original size, with four times as many taps, and twice as many televisions – and the dance floor has been expanded, as well.”
More live entertainment events will be announced soon, but the showcase opening of The Venue will feature a FREE performance by Johnny Lee Friday night, December 30. Doors open at 7:00 for the 8:00 p.m. show.
Johnny Lee has long been a favorite of country music fans ever since his 10-year working relationship with Mickey Gilley beginning in 1968. His first gold record was Lookin’ for Love, originally recorded for the soundtrack of the movie Urban Cowboy in which Lee also appeared with John Travolta and Deborah Winger. Other #1 hit recordings include One in a Million, Bet Your Heart on Me, The Yellow Rose, and You Could’ve Heard a Heart Break.
“Construction of The Venue is nearly complete, and we are excited about our continued expansion of facilities,” Logan said. “The Grand Lake community has always been supportive of our business and our employees, and we are always delighted when we are able to enhance our offerings and provide expanded entertainment options for our area. The free Johnny Lee show is a great way to wrap up the holidays and join us in a celebration of all we have to be thankful for in the Grand Lake area,” he said.
December 30 will be a huge night of celebration at Grand Lake Casino. In addition to the Johnny Lee performance in the new facilities, a one-of-a-kind Mercedes GLC will also be given away Friday evening at 10:30, topping the casino’s month-long $150,000 giveaway.
