Pala Casino Spa Resort presents Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Oct. 15

PALA – Pala Casino Spa Resort is excited to present legendary American Country Rock band Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Saturday, Oct. 15, performing live indoors at the Events Center.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band formed in 1966 as a Long Beach, California jug band. The band scored its first charting single in 1967, and embarked on a self-propelled ride through folk, country, rock ‘n’ roll, pop, bluegrass, and the amalgam now known as “Americana.”

The first major hit came in 1971 with the epic “Mr. Bojangles,” which, along with insistent support from banjo master Earl Scruggs, opened doors in Nashville. Their three-disc 1972 masterpiece: Will the Circle Be Unbroken went triple Platinum, spawned two later volumes, and wound up in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

In the 1980s, the Dirt Band reeled off 15 straight Top 10 country hits, including chart-toppers “Long Hard Road (The Sharecropper’s Dream),” “Modern Day Romance,” and “Fishin’ in the Dark.” 1989 brought a second Circle album, this one featuring singer-songwriter talents including John Prine, Rosanne Cash, and John Hiatt and garnering two Grammy awards for the band.

Circle II also won the Country Music Association’s Album of the Year prize. Circle III was released in 2003, featuring collaborations with Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, and more.

The show will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now, with no service charge, at the Pala Box Office, http://www.palacasino.com and 1-877-725-2766. Tickets are also available at http://www.etix.com and 1-800-514-3849. Must be 21 or older to attend.
