SINBAD
Saturday, July 11, 2015 - 8pm
Stand-up comedian, movie, and TV star Sinbad brings his “tickle your funny bone” talent back to The Grand for an encore performance. Claiming he doesn’t know any jokes, Sinbad is ranked by Comedy Central as one of the top 100 standup comedians of all time; and his comedy is profound without being profane!  He has built a loyal following by finding laugher in the trials and tribulations of everyday life and attributes his knowledge of comedy to what he learned from playing basketball.  As a one-time standout athlete for the University of Denver, Sinbad believes “the competitive aspect of sports teaches you to never give up.”   His appearance at The Grand promises to be another “hit ‘em in the face” performance!

AN EVENING WITH PATTI LaBELLE
Sunday, August 2, 2015 - 7pm
Beautiful, simply does not describe the incomparable force known to the world as Patti LaBelle. As time continues to evolve, the soulful songbird’s name has become synonymous with grace, style, elegance and class.  Belting out classic rhythm and blues renditions, pop standards and spiritual sonnets have created the unique platform of versatility that Ms. Patti is known and revered for.Her energy keeps her fire burning and fuels a passion to try something new…Dancing with the Stars is a perfect example!  “Each year I grow, and that’s a blessing from God.  I do what I can do.  I do what I feel God has given me the energy to do, so I just go out there and I do it.  I need to sing.  With a voice or without, I’ve got to get on that stage.”  And the world is thankful that Ms. Patti’s voice sounds so good to our ears.
