Night Ranger at the Island Resort and Casino

America’s hardest-working band, Night Ranger, is back to prove once again that you can still rock in America. Catch these arena rock favorites this Rocktober when they return to The Island Showroom for a two-night engagement on the 18th and 19th. 

There’s No Secret to Their Success

It’s been 42 years since the release of Night Ranger’s first album, Dawn Patrol. That debut put the band squarely on the map with two smash hits: “Sing Me Away” and “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me.” 

Their 1983 follow-up, Midnight Madness, went even further to firmly establish Night Ranger as a headlining act with album opener “(You Can Still) Rock in America” and the band’s biggest hit, “Sister Christian.” 

Since their unparalleled streak of hit records in the ’80s, Night Ranger has been motorin’ non-stop with equal parts hard work and hard rock. 

Founding members Jack Blades, Kelly Keagy and Brad Gillis, joined by guitarist Kerri Kelli and keyboardist Eric Levy, continue to tour relentlessly. These icons haven’t slowed down one bit and are still one of the best live acts around. 

To celebrate their 40th anniversary, Night Ranger released a live album titled 40 Years and a Night with Contemporary Youth Orchestra. This special collaboration features all your favorite Night Ranger hits, played with an 80-piece orchestra consisting of 12- to 18-year-old student musicians from Ohio. 

When You Close Your Eyes, Do You Dream About These Hits?

Night Ranger has sold over 17 million albums worldwide, performed on more than 4,000 stages and captivated more than one billion radio listeners. They’ve scored two platinum records, one gold record and 12 singles on the U.S. charts. 

Since then, their popularity has only grown thanks to their instantly recognizable radio hits and signature album tracks. Head down sentimental street with some of these favorites:

You Can’t Dodge Jon Reep

Jon’s appeared in Eastbound and Down, Black-ish and Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay. In this last film, he played Raymus, the memorable pot-smoking farmer. 

Jon’s comedy draws heavily from his family life and the outrageous things his father has done over the years. He’s built a following through his numerous comedy specials and his winning appearance on the 5th season of Last Comic Standing.

Improv master Adam Ferrara is an internationally touring headliner and two-time nominee for best male stand-up by the American Comedy Awards. He has three Comedy Central Specials where his self-deprecating humor and manic anxiety take center stage. 

Adam is well on his way to becoming a household name. He already has a podcast, a comedy album and several recent TV and film appearances to his credit.

Adam has the ability to shift characters, voices and narratives on a dime. That, along with the unexpected, heartfelt moments injected into his stories, will make you laugh and cry until it hurts. Visit AdamFerrara.com for more and see Adam in action here:

Carla Rea

Carla Rea may look like the lady next door, but she’s built an impressive comedy resume over her 25-year career.
