    Beach Boys slot comes to town
    The band is still touring, its music is upbeat, and its shows attract the same demographic that loves slot machines. So that makes the Beach Boys a slam-dunk entry into the world of slots. Last week, the Beach Boys slot machine rolled out at the...

    'Grease' slot machine slides onto the scene
    "Grease" is the word. It's got groove. It's got meaning.     It's also the theme for a new slot machine, which debuted last month at the Seminole casinos in South Florida.     At Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, for example, the machines are encased in...

  • Touching base with the Heavy Pets

    Touching base with the Heavy Pets
    To call the Heavy Pets a "local band" at this point would be something of a misnomer. While the jam-rock group’s founding members hail from New York, the band itself did get its start in South Florida. But then, so did New Found Glory, and no one...
