4. Regional Attractions and Natural Wonders: On the South Oregon Coast, “boredom” is not an option. Whatever their tastes are, your guests will have plenty of activities to choose from: From fishing to riding the sand dunes to strolling on the beach or through downtown Coos Bay.

5. The Beaches: Explore the tranquil nearby beaches and parks like Shore Acres State Park .

6. The View of Coos Bay: The sweeping view of the bay is the perfect back drop to any event- social or corporate. Most rooms have a direct view of the bay and guests are invited to take in the sites from numerous spots inside of the hotel: including the board walk and lobby.

10. The Non Stop Entertainment and Casino: Again, boredom in not possible. Your attendees will enjoy unwinding at the Casino with over 700 slots, Vegas style table games, a 4-table poker room and Oregon’s most rewarding cash-back player’s club.

GRAMMY WINNER TRAVIS TRITT COMING TO THE MILL CASINO

Concerts, Events Comments Off

Waterfront Concert Schedule for Thursday, August 11

Photo Credit: TravisTritt.com

This August The Mill Casino • Hotel will welcome two-time Grammy-award winning, multi-platinum country recording artist Travis Tritt, live in concert on Thursday, August 11, 2011, on the casino’s waterfront dock. Tickets for the 8:30 p.m. “rain or shine” concert are now on sale at Ko-Kwel Gifts for $45 or $40 with a Millionaire$ Club card. This concert is for those 21 or better.

A native of Marietta, Georgia, Travis Tritt burst onto the music scene in 1989 with his debut hit single “Country Club”. As one of the leading new country singers of the 90s, Tritt easily held his own against the likes of Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson. He was the only one not to wear a hat, and the only one to dip into bluesy Southern rock, developing a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the rest of the pack.

Recognized as a country-rockin’ innovator who respects the country-music tradition, Tritt is a multi-platinum musical powerhouse. Tritt has charted more than forty times, including five times at number one, with such hits as “Help Me Hold On,” “Anymore,” “Can I Trust You With My Heart,” “Foolish Pride,” and “Best of Intentions”.

A member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1992, Tritt has received four Country Music Association awards and won two Grammys.
