Country music legend Charlie Daniels and the Charlie Daniels Band will perform in concert at the Wild Rose Casino and Resort in Jefferson Sept. 25. Daniels’ show follows the successful grand opening performances of Kenny Rogers in early August.
The 78-year-old Daniels, a North Carolina native, has been inducted in the Grand Ole Opry and the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum. He has been writing songs and playing his trademark brand of country and bluegrass fiddle for more than 60 years.
Wild Rose Jefferson is continuing to develop its entertainment schedule with a combination of well-known and up and coming artists. The casino announced on Facebook this week that it will host the Charlie Daniels Band on Friday, September 25, in the Greene Room Event Center at 7:30 p.m.
Adding a new wrinkle to their offerings, Wild Rose held a pre-sale event Sept. 6 for their Ultimate VIP package. The special tickets include a meet-and-greet with Daniels before the show, along with front-row center seating, two drink tickets, $15 at Coaches Corner and a “special gift.”
At $151.50, the Ultimate VIP packages were limited to 12 seats, and the sale lasted only six hours. A second-tier VIP package, priced at $51.50, was also offered for the center 84 seats in the first four rows of the event center. The VIP deal also included two free drink tickets.
Wild Rose Jefferson Marketing Manager Aaron Harn said musical entertainment “is an essential element in the overall experience we provide our guests. Our VIP packages are designed to deliver some special amenities and opportunities for concert-goers, players and guests.”
The $42 million Wild Rose Casino and Resort in Jefferson opened in late July, featuring an 18,000-square-foot casino with 526 slot machines and 14 table games.
