Sometimes I forget we have fabulous entertainers who perform in the Avalon Theatre at Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls year-round.

The intimate 1,500-seat theatre at 6389 Fallsview Boulevard was opened in June of 2004.

For example, this month scheduled to appear are Sha-Na-Na. My wife Ellen and I already have our tickets, and near the end of the month the Voca People, a very unique group of entertainers.

In February, you can see Chris Rock, Art Garfunkel, or The Barenaked ladies.

Two of the performers in March are Chubby Checker and Randy Bachman. Incidentally, Dick Clark gave Chubby Checker and Fats Domino their stage names. He said he named them after board games and their size.

Comedy icon Billy Crystal will be at the theatre this coming April. He will perform two evenings of stand-up and story-telling April 12 and 13th.
