Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den Heats Up In October

Randy Houser October 8th

Boyz II Men is live on October 14th

Stephen Stills heats things up on October 21st

Cold headlines on October 29th

The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun is the place to be this fall as upcoming Pop singer Andy Grammer performs on Saturday, October 2nd, followed by Country artist Randy Houser on Saturday, October 8th. Boyz II Men bring their chart topping hits to the Wolf Den on Friday, October 14th. Mohegan Sun celebrates its 15th anniversary weekend with legendary performer Stephen Stills on the Wolf Den stage on Friday, October 21st and Country music star Dierks Bentley will cap off the weekend with a performance on Saturday, October 22nd. Rock group Cold will perform on Saturday, October 29th. Friday and Saturday Wolf Den shows begin at 8:00pm and Sunday shows are at 7:00pm unless otherwise noted.   Admission is free, but all patrons must be 21 or over.

One listen to Andy Grammer’s self-titled S-Curve Records debut and it is clear that this young man became an expert. From the buoyant Top 10 hit, “Keep Your Head Up” to the breezy “Fine By Me,” jubilant, horn-laced “The Pocket” and emotionally-charged “You Should Know Better,” his irresistible Pop songs blend heartfelt, compelling lyrics with instantly unforgettable melodies. Think the relaxed vibe of Jason Mraz crossed with the Rock Soul of Maroon 5.

Houser’s debut album, Anything Goes, introduced him as an exceptional artist, someone with both a cutting-edge sound and a deep respect for classic Country. Fans, media and peers alike recognize that he possesses an artistic vision equal to his formidable talent. The strong reaction to his music was evident when David Letterman heard the album’s powerful first single, “Anything Goes,” and invited Randy to perform on The Late Show, introducing him to an even broader nationwide audience.

Working once again with Motown producer Randy Jackson, Boyz II Men (Wanya Morris, Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman) brings their distinctive, individual voices and peerless harmonies to bear on songs made famous by Bonnie Raitt, The Manhattans, Journey, The Spinners, Sam Cooke, the Beatles and Cyndi Lauper. Boyz II Men weave these diverse selections together into an album-length symphony, one that flows seamlessly from an impassioned “I Can’t Make You Love Me” through the shimmering a cappella sound of “Time After Time” to “When I Fall In Love,” a beautiful reworking of a great American standard featuring Boyz II Men’s special guest Michael Bublé.

From its inception, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young was designed to allow the individual performers great latitude for their solo work  following the recording of the group’s live LP Four Way Street, in late 1970, Stephen Stills released his self-titled solo debut. It sparked the success of the hit single “Love the One You’re With.” The album, which featured cameos from Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, was another smash, as was his 1971 follow-up Stephen Stills 2. In 1972, Stills began performing with a new backing unit, Manassas, which featured ex-Byrd and Flying Burrito Brother Chris Hillman; both their eponymous debut and 1973′s Down the Road continued Stills’ long string of chart successes.

Trepidation will not be part of Dierks Bentley’s legacy. At every turn in his career, he’s done his own thing, whether that meant touring with Jam bands, playing Rock venues or recording with Bluegrass all-stars on platinum Country albums. Now Dierks steps forward with his most artistically daring project yet, the all-acoustic Up On The Ridge – a powerful, beautiful album steeped in the Bluegrass and Roots music that moved Dierks Bentley to be a Country musician in the first place.

Cold burst onto the Rock scene with the release of their self-titled debut album in 1998. They achieved their most successful milestone to date when their third studio album, Year of the Spider, climbed to #3 on the U.S. Rock charts. That album produced the hit singles “Stupid Girl” and “Suffocate.” The band just wrapped up their latest effort, 2011’s Superfiction, and it’s lead single “Wicked World” is currently riding Rock radio airwaves.
