Santa Fe Station won’t be singing the blues.
The casino has discontinued free blues entertainment on Wednesday nights at its club, Chrome.
“Santa Fe just needed a change,” said Joe Santiago, vice president of entertainment for Station Casinos. “We will have free blues concerts there from time to time, mixed in with paying concerts.”
Blues guitarist Walter Trout will perform at Chrome for free Feb. 22.
The change doesn’t affect the popular Boulder Blues series free blues concerts held each Thursday at the Railhead at Boulder Station. Upcoming shows include Scott Holt on Jan. 17, Debbie Davies on Jan. 24 and Little Charlie & The Nightcats on Jan. 31.
Santiago says there will be more blues headliners at the Railhead on Fridays and Saturdays.
Red Mountain Music Company, a nonprofit valleywide musical performing arts organization, will present “Moving Too Fast” on Saturday in Boulder City.
The show features music by Jason Robert Brown, who won a Tony Award for “Parade.” He’s also composed music for “Songs for a New World,” “The Last Five Years” and “Urban Cowboy.”
The show is directed by Jeffrey Skouson, artistic director of Red Mountain.
Details: 5:30 and 7 p.m. Saturday; auditorium of the former Los Angeles Water and Power building, 600 Nevada Way, east of where Nevada Highway and Buchanan Boulevard cross; $10; www.redmountainmusic.org. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce, 465 Nevada Way.
