The American RUSH Tribute, Lotus Land, Performs Live At Resorts Casino Hotel

The American RUSH Tribute, Lotus Land, Performs
 Live At Resorts Casino Hotel

Saturday, March 24th inside the Superstar Theater

https://us.vocuspr.com/Publish/2929240/vcsPRAsset_2929240_67912_4061b89a-0698-421f-9fcc-d8b4fee4ee1e_0.jpgSource: Resorts Casino Hotel, Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (January 11th, 2018) – Set to bring the force of live RUSH to life on stage, Lotus Land – The American RUSH Tribute will perform inside the Superstar Theater at Resorts Casino Hotel on Saturday, March 24th at 8:00pm.
Ticket prices start at $35.00 and $25.00 and are on sale now through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or 1.800.745.3000. Tickets will also be available at the Resorts’ Box Office.

Each of the Lotus Land band members, Chris Nelson, Bob Chartrand and Mark Dalton, has had their share of notable gigs during their musical careers.  These seasoned musicians don’t take the task of recreating RUSH’s music lightly.  They take pride and hope to bring the music of RUSH to life, with a live sound as big and true to form.

Enjoyed by die-hard RUSH fans, musicians and casual music listeners alike, the Lotus Land experience has been heralded as the ultimate celebration of RUSH’s musical craftsmanship and spirited performances. With the true set up and sound of the Canadian power trio, Lotus Land delivers the thrill that people expect when they see RUSH in concert. Their performances have wowed sold-out houses in New England’s premier concert venues and casinos, and their fan-base continues to grow nationally and internationally.
From as far south as the Hard Rock Café in Panama City, Panama and back to back nights at the Hardrock Café in the Dominican Republic, to as far north as Toronto Canada where the band was honored in performing for the largest international RUSH fan event, RUSHCON, in 2012, 2014 and 2016. Lotus Land has also dotted up the eastern seaboard of the United States playing shows in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont and Connecticut.

Because of their unrelenting hard work and dedication to this cause, Lotus Land’s efforts were formally recognized nationally, when Lotus Land was asked to perform LIVE on AXS TV’s “World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.” The Canadian trio performed on a live television broadcast on March 23rd, 2016 at the world famous Whisky a Go Go on the Hollywood’s Sunset strip. Other highlights have been playing with accomplished violinist Gerardo Hilera (Clockwork Angels – Tour) on multiple occasions in the New England area.

They’ll be serving up some of the best craft beer in the area made using the freshest local ingredients (one of the benefits of being in the Garden State!) and pristine water from the 800’ Sands aquifer.  The water is estimated to be aged 30,000 years and the origin for the name Hidden Sands.

Hidden Sands also has one of the most sophisticated brewing systems in the Northeast.  The fully automated, oversized 20 barrel system is very rare and will allow the brewery to consistently produce the same quality beer over and over again.  It’s a system that’s so impressive that it was on display during last year’s Craft Brewers Conference in Philadelphia.

Hidden Sands Brewing Company is a joint venture between John Cipriani (Certified Public Accountant), Matt Helm (Commercial Refrigeration and Beer system designer/installer), and Tony Cepparulo (Commercial bar and kitchen installer).  Cipriani, Helm, Cepparulo and a team of investors have worked for years to get to this point, making sure that they have the best equipment, highest quality ingredients and a strong business model.  With intense focus and hard work, they are now finally ready to let the public come in and experience their beautiful facility and taste their beer!

Amalfi Coast Videos By Berman Travel / Luxury Travel 411

Amalfi Coast Videos By Berman Travel / Luxury Travel 411

Your Camera Will Need A Vacation When You Return Home...Photo Ops Everywhere

The Amalfi Coast is situated on the Sorrento peninsula. Amalfi, with its wonderful views, is the main town of the Amalfi Coast. White houses cling onto the rocks opposite the Saint Andrew Cathedral and the main square. 


Berman Travel Tours To: Amalfi, Positano, Praiano, Sorrento, Capri and More



The town of Amalfi is filled with alleys, and steps, with 57 steps to get up to the famous Cathedral of St. Andrew and Cloister of Paradise, a treasure of medieval architecture. 



The narrow alleyways of the town wind through the hills and up the slopes between the sea and mountains. While visiting, don't miss the beaches as they are some of the most beautiful on the coast. With crystal clear water, it is perfect for swimming, scuba diving or boating. 



Also, worth the visit is Palazzo Morelli and its Civic Museum. Save time for shopping, especially for the lemon liquor which is locally produced and the famous handmade paper created in town as well.

Berman Travel 866-934-6292 www.BermanTravel.com


















Located in an amazing spot along the southern tip of the Amalfi coastline, picture-perfect Positano is one of the most popular seaside resort destinations in Italy. Like many European resorts, it began as a fishing village that was visited by painters, writers and bohemians until a full-scale tourism industry was born. An hour's drive from Naples, Positano has been described as heaven between the sea and the sky.









Sorrento is an elegant and sophisticated seaside resort perched on cliffs above the Bay of Naples, with unbelievable views. Piazza Tasso, the main square built over a ravine with the ruins of an old watermill at the bottom, represents the heart of town, and is filled with friendly bars and restaurants.

Distance from hotel to town by boat, 5 miles (8 kms). Distance from hotel to airport by boat, 2 miles (3 kms).  
The Four Seasons Resort is located on its own private island motu with just 100 exclusive over-water bungalows and 7 beach front villas nestled around a crystalline lagoon and ancient volcanic peaks. The resorts' public areas and private villas are strategically hidden amidst lush vegetation consisting of coconut and tiare trees, bougainvilleas, pandanus trees, and bird of paradise. The various buildings form a village based on Polynesian cultural history and architecture using traditional, indigenous materials to take full advantage of the natural surroundings on land and in the dramatic turquoise lagoon. Guests are greeted at Bora Bora Airport (BOB) by Four Seasons staff with a chilled towel and cold beverage and then transported via luxury boat launch to our arrivals pavilion, approximately 10 minutes. Upon arrival at the resort, guests are escorted by a Four Seasons staff via motorized cart for a brief orientation of the resort grounds and then to their air-conditioned over-water suite or beachfront villa. Four Seasons Bora Bora suites and villas are decorated in natural colors and fabrics with refined Polynesian objects reflecting the culture, indigenous wild and marine life, and native landscape. Every attempt was made to bridge the gap between the natural outdoor world and the comforts and convenience of a luxury suite. To create a world that is both at one with nature but also incredibly indulgent.

HUAHINE

While Huahine has all of the natural beauty of the other islands, this one is more remote and may be the best ambassador of Tahitian culture, archaeology and mystery. The island is home to the largest concentration of pre-European ancient temples known as marae, of which local guides are quite knowledgeable. A small, scenic road runs throughout Huahine, giving you a glimpse of beautiful vistas and quaint villages where local arts and crafts are displayed and sold. Vacationers often rent their own transportation to travel this road, and to visit the banana, coconut, and melon plantations that make the air so fragrant.

MOOREA

Moorea has always been the choice of painters and writers, soaring out of the ocean in an explosion of green velvet pinnacles. A wide, shallow lagoon surrounds the mountains where threads of waterfalls tumble down fern-softened cliffs. Moorea is circled with simple pastel-painted villages, surrounded by hibiscus gardens and exotic birds. Eco-tours are a popular way to take in natural wonders such as these, and other pursuits like whale watching and hiking the legendary Opunohu and Cook Bay
s. For those less adventurous, Moorea's white sand beaches and golf course are nice, laid-back alternatives.
