04/05/2018 - Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort Presents Pop & Motown Legends, the Commodores
Jackson, CA...Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort invites you to get your groove on with the award winning Commodores; April 5, 2018 in our Grand Oak Ballroom. Having sold over 60 million records, the Commodores were one of the largest selling acts for Motown in the 70’s and 80’s. But they didn’t stop there. Wanting to produce a greatest hits album and the refusal from Motown to release control over their material, The Commodores were forced to create all new digital recordings of their classic hits. Between 1991 and 1992 they had recorded enough material, with J.D. Nicholas and Clyde Orange alternating lead vocals, to release their two disc set Commodores Hits Vol I and Commodores Hits Vol II. In addition to the reemergence of these classic hits, the group also produced an album featuring all-new material, Commodores XX – No Tricks, which was released in 1993 under their own label Commodores Records and Entertainment.

Throughout the decades, the Commodores have proven time and time again that they’re soulful renditions will stand the test of time. From winning their university’s freshman talent show at Tuskegee University in Alabama in 1968, releasing their 1986 Grammy winning hit “Night Shift”, to their induction into the Vocal Group Hall of fame in 2003, they have gone on to win the hearts of millions. Young and old alike can be heard singing along to their greatest hits, such as, “Easy”, “Three Times a Lady” and “Brickhouse”, and they will continue to entertain fans for generations to come.

Tickets are on sale now starting at $50 for Dreamcatcher’s Club® members, available only at the Casino Cashier’s Cage, and starting at $55 for non-Dreamcatcher’s Club® members, available at the Casino Cashier’s Cage or online at Will Call opens at 5 p.m., the doors open at 6 p.m. and the shows begin at 7 p.m. Beer, wine, and food will be available.

02/03/2018 - John Muir to tell tales in Mokelumne Hill on Saturday, February 3, 2018
Mokelumne Hill, CA...Acclaimed performance by actor Lee Stetson fun for all.
The Foothill Conservancy is hosting critically acclaimed actor Lee Stetson portraying the renowned Yosemite naturalist John Muir on Saturday February 3, at 7:00 p.m. The performance will be in the historic Mokelumne Hill Town Hall at 8283 Main Street. Tickets are on sale now. “We are excited to have Lee return to our area to perform “John Muir is back -- and man, is he ticked
off,” said Foothill Conservancy Executive Director Amanda Nelson. “Muir’s life was extraordinary, and Lee’s portrayal of Muir is an intimate sharing of the humor, intelligence and tremendous passion of one of the world’s best-known and admired naturalists.”

Lee Stetson has been performing as John Muir for over 30 years at universities, museums and parks from Washington, D.C. to Hawaii. He portrayed Muir on Ken Burn’s award-winning series “National Parks – America’s Best Idea.” Stetson also performs every summer at Yosemite National Park, where Muir lived for about six years.

John Muir emigrated from Scotland to Wisconsin with his family in 1838. His first visit to Yosemite was in 1868, when he was 30 years old. Muir was so taken with the area’s natural beauty and wilderness that he remained for several years, working in jobs including sheepherder and sawmiller. He was instrumental in advocating for the creation of Yosemite National Park.
Founder of the Sierra Club, Muir is perhaps best known for his passionate advocacy to save wilderness, particularly the Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park, threatened with flooding when the O’Shaughnessy Dam was proposed. What some label the first environmental fight ended unsuccessfully
in 1913 when Congress approved the dam project.

“John Muir’s love for the wilderness, and his desire to protect it, was based on his seeing the connection and interdependency of natural ecosystems,” said Nelson. “Muir understood that protecting natural systems was key to ensuring a healthy environment for both people and wildlife. His lessons live on today as we work to protect the clean water, productive soils and diverse habitats humans and wildlife need to survive.”

Tickets to the performance are $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the show. They’re available online at

Tickets can also be purchased from the Foothill Conservancy office by contacting Carolyn at 209-223-3508, or

Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase at the event. “John Muir is back -- and man, is he ticked off” is a benefit for the nonprofit Foothill Conservancy, which works to keep our areas towns small, trees tall and river wild.
