Almost everyone has a fascination with horses. This connection might reach back into our common ancestry when humans figured out how to tame an animal many times their size and cut down the time it took to get to and from the corner hunting grounds.

James Darren has enjoyed a successful, multi-faceted career, spanning six decades of motion picture, television, recording and live concert performances. His film credits came early in the form of the series of “Gidget” movies, “The Guns of Navarone” and “Let No Man Write My Epitaph.” His television credits came later with starring roles on “The Time Tunnel,” “T.J. Hooker,” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”
Spring comes early to the desert. While the East Coast is still facing winter (according to Punxsutawney Phil), Laughlin, Bullhead City and the rest of the Southwest has been enjoying balmy days for over a month.

Alan Jackson climbed to the top of the A List of country singers over two decades ago.

How many years? Well, he is in Laughlin on Sat, Feb 21, as part of his 25th anniversary “Keepin’ It Country Tour“—and he is not going to be alone. Opening for Jackson are two country singers who are candidates for the A-List of the future—Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark.
