It’s going to be a Spectacular December at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.  Some big names are taking over the stage for one full weekend starting on December 27th.

Kicking off the week is Styx! They’ve rocked audiences far and wide, playing over 100 shows a year every year since 1999. Styx is the first band in rock history to have four consecutive certified multi-million-selling albums in a row. With huge hits over the years like “The Grand Illustion”, "Lady”, "Miss America” and “Come Sail Away.” Styx draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound.

Next on December 28, Nelly, Chingy and Murphy Lee are taking the stage!

Nelly made his solo debut in 2000 with “country grammar.” Nelly’s next four albums all made it to the top three on Billboard, with many of his singles routinely making the top 20. When the two-time Grammy award winner isn’t making music, he ventures into film and TV, appearing on CSI: New York and The Longest Yard.

Chingy has enjoyed lots of success in his career, starting in 2003 with the summer smash hit “Right Thurr”. That song became an overnight hit, peaking at number 2 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart and Top 40 Billboard’s Hot Rap Tracks. Since then he’s seen big success with his platinum album “Powerballin” and gold album “Pullin’ Me Back.”

Tohri “Murphy Lee” Harper has been wowing audiences all over the world for over two decades with his flirtatious flows and manipulative metaphors, and he isn’t stopping now! As the youngest member of the St. Lunatics, Murphy Lee exploded on the scene holding his own with big hits like “Shake a Tailfeather” and “Luv Me Baby,” which both hit the Top 40 Charts.  He has a total of 30 million albums sold, a Grammy, and countless Top 40 Hits.

Following the rappers will be Aaron Tippin and Sammy Kershaw on December 29.

Aaron Tippin has been making music for the past 25 years, marking his silver anniversary as a recording artist!  Tippin joined the Nashville Powerhouse RCA back in 1990. His first single “You’ve Got To Stand For Something” hit the Billboard Country Singles Chart, eventually peaking at number six. As the years went by, the hits continued to pile up with “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio”, “My Blue Angel”, and “Workin’ Man’s PhD.”  Tippin promises that his 25th Anniversary Celebration promises to be an unforgettable year of music and fun.

Since Sammy Kershaw’s  debut on the music scene in the early 90’s, he has remained one of the most consistent power hitters in country music-both with a chain of major hit records and sell-out touring schedules. In the course of breaking into the ranks of stardom in country music, his platinum albums were propelled into the records books by hits such as “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful”, “I Can’t Reach Her Anymore”, “National Working Woman’s Holiday”, “Haunted Heart”, and many other milestones.

Last but not least on December 30, comedians DL Hughley and Eddie Griffin!

DL is first and foremost a stand-up comedian, but can currently be heard nationwide as host of his afternoon radio show “The DL Hughley Show”. He’s also done nine comedy specials, and is a New York Times best selling author.

Eddie Griffin is a popular comedian turned actor who started his career on-stage as a dare. Since then this funny man has built an ever-growing fan base since jumping onto the comedy scene in 1990.  Eddie has appeared in 47 films, numerous television shows, as well as multiple comedy specials.

Comedian Bill Engvall is back in West Michigan on January 18! Engvall appeared in a Showtime special, A Pair of Joker's with Rosie O'Donnell, followed by hosting A&E's Evening at the Improv and appearances on both The Tonight Show and the Late Show with David Letterman. Then in 1992, Bill won the American Comedy Award for 'Best Male Stand-up Comedian.' Alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Ron White, Bill Engvall was part of the enormously successful Blue Collar Comedy Tour concert films. Tickets start at $35.

Tickets to Three Doors Down are now on sale. They'll be in Mt. Pleasant on February 1! This American Rock band fro Mississippi formed in 1996. They rose to international fame with their first single "Kryptonite," which placed in the top three on the Billboard 100 chart. Worldwide they've sold more than 20 million albums. Tickets will be available at at 9 a.m.
