Throughout the 1990’s as well as the 1980’s, 1970’s and 1960’s there has been only one King of the blues – Rile B. King, affectionately known as B.B. King. Since B.B. started recording in the late 1940’s, he has released over 50 albums many of them considered blues classics, like 1965’s definitive live blues album “Live at The Regal”, and 1976’s collaboration with bobby “Blue” Bland, “Together For The First Time”.
Over the years, B.B. has had two number one R & B hits, 1951’s “Three O’Clock Blues”, and 1952’s “you Upset Me Baby”, 1960’s “Sweet Sixteen, Part I”, and “1966’s “Don’t Answer the Door, Part I”, B.B.’s most popular crossover hit, 1970’s “The Thrill Is Gone” went to 15 on the pop charts.
One thing for sure, you will never see the King as up close and personal as the Ballroom stage. Come on down.

Kathleen Madigan Cancelled
A fire in the Purple Urchin restaurant has caused power and gas to be shut off to the Casino Complex, which also houses the Casino Ballroom. Although the Casino Ballroom did not suffer any damage, power and gas will not be restored to the complex in time to host Kathleen Madigan's performance scheduled for Thursday October 13th at 8pm. Refunds are available at point of purchase. No other shows on the Ballroom schedule will be impacted.
Our thoughts are with our good friends from the Purple Urchin. We would also like to the thank the true "rock stars" of the world, first responders from Hampton Fire and PD as well as all the surrounding towns.
