Air Supply
Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, the first day of rehearsals for “Jesus Christ Superstar” in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing.

After the shows’ performances at 10:30, they would play pizza parlors, coffee bars and night clubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for original songs that Graham was constantly writing. They made a demo on a cassette of two songs, “Love and Other Bruises” and “If You Knew Me” and took it to every record company in Sydney. Everyone turned it down but one — CBS Records — who admired their unique style.

They made a single in one afternoon and it shot to number one on the national charts. Air Supply was born!

Borgata Comedy Club Presents Earl David Reed, Joe Devito & Dan Wilson
Earl David Reed is a trendsetter in the comedy and radio world. Within his 15 years of stand up comedy, Earl has performed at over 100 comedy clubs and colleges and is a favorite in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Along with his 10 years of morning broadcasting experience and numerous television appearances, his improvisational style has become a favorite of radio and stage audiences all around.

Joe DeVito is a stand-up comedian and writer living on Long Island, New York.  In 2006, he was featured on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham and appeared at the Montreal "Just for Laughs" Comedy Festival in the New Faces program. In 2007, he was a semifinalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing Season 5. He has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS, Animal Planet and CNN, and he is a regular on Fox News Channel's Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld.

Dan Wilson is one of those breezy, gentle types that will hit you like a building collapsing. A naturally funny man, Wilson can rip through an inspired set that somehow connects Rudy Vallee-style rapping, midget-wrestling, plane flight annoyances, Barney Fife, and a visit to the dentist. A tremendous amount of his material is potently funny, a sucker punch that you don't expect from an innocent smile and an average Joe, but Wilson is one of the great "class clowns" in the business. This is good-time, clean, and inoffensive comedy. With a steady flow of laughs, Wilson uncorks some hysterical tomfoolery. He is the type of stand-up that reminds you of those summer nights when you were a kid and your best friend got you giddy and made you laugh for so long that it hurt.

ZZ TOP is the same but always changing.
