About Toby Keith - From his first No. 1 smash "Should've Been A Cowboy" to his latest single "35 MPH Town," Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era. From one of his previous collections, Clancy's Tavern, the lead single, "Made In America," topped the charts as one of the fastest rising songs in a long line of chart burners from Keith's pen. The second hit, "Red Solo Cup," has become the most remarkable and commercially successful country single in recent memory with a viral video with more than 30 million views while having topped the top downloaded country songs charts. The first single from his upcoming album, "Drunk Americans," debuted at No. 1 Most Added on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts; while his current single, "35 MPH Town," was just released.



At the core of Toby's unparalleled success is his songwriting, which has powered an astounding succession of hit songs to the tune of more than 85 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide. He has been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International with its Songwriter/Artist of the Decade distinction, is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was named the American Country Awards' Artist of the Decade. He will be inducted to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame this June. His albums have sold more than 40 million copies, ranking him among the top-selling all-genre artists on Billboard's Top 200 Artists of the Decade. Keith is also Billboard's No. 1 Country Artist of the Decade and No. 1 Country Songwriter of the Decade. His tours, including 2014's Shut Up And Hold On Tour, long sponsored by Ford Trucks, have drawn more than one million fans each year for the last decade. This year's Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour presented by Ford F-Series will kick off on May 29 in Mountain View, California. His roster of I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants continues to grow, and his signature spirit Wild Shot has become the No. 1 premium mezcal in the U.S. But Toby's most rewarding experiences, as exhibited in his continual devotion to them, come from giving back. Whether it's helping sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma through the Toby Keith Foundation and their cost-free home, the Ok Kids Korral, or supporting US Troops including 11 USO Tours throughout the world, Keith has never lost touch with the most important things in life.



About Chris Janson: Electrifying Warner Bros. Records singer/songwriter Chris Janson made headlines when “his song “Buy Me A Boat” quickly landed at #1 on the iTunes Country chart and #7 on the all genre chart. In addition, “Chris Janson” trended in the Top 10 as superstars Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Nashville's Charles “Chip” Esten where abuzz on Twitter about the catchy tune. A formidable songwriter in his own right, Janson co-wrote the song with Chris Dubois, who has penned many #1 songs. With undeniable charisma, Janson brings a blue-collar, working-class, boot-stomping hillbilly swagger to bear on every live performance, earning him opening slots for Florida Georgia Line, music legends Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. The Perryville, Missouri native first broke onto the music scene when he landed a year long, four-show-a-day gig at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Nashville's Lower Broadway.

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City



Gordon Ramsay and Caesars Entertainment announced that Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill opened at Caesars Atlantic City, yesterday. The 250-seat restaurant will offer an authentic English pub experience on the East Coast, following the enormous success of his Pub & Grill at Caesars Las Vegas. Reservations, which are highly recommended, can be made online at opentable.com or by calling the Pub directly at (609) 343-2600.



“We’re really excited about the opening after such a great success in Vegas. We have an amazing team and partnership with Caesars,” said Gordon Ramsay, and we’re looking forward to bringing it to the East Coast.



Veteran gourmet chef and long-time Atlantic City culinarian George Galati will oversee all kitchen operations for the outlet. Best known for his co-starring role alongside Chef Robert Irvine in Dinner: Impossible on the Food Network, Galati adds nearly 30 years of gourmet experience to an already well-equipped culinary staff.



Hell’s Kitchen Season 13 winner, Chef La Tasha McCutchen has been tapped as head restaurant chef, under Chef George. A fan-favorite throughout Season 13, Chef LaTasha showed signs of her skill and culinary talents very early on, winning Chef Ramsay’s praise at crucial times. “I feel like I opened the doors to my future. I trusted in myself, I believed in myself and I know now that I have what it takes to be a true leader in this industry,” said McCutchen on winning the competition.



The menu at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars features items consistent with British pub fare. Classic British favorites such as, bangers and mash and yorkshire rib roast, as well as some of Ramsay’s favorites like the beef wellington and wood-grilled lobster tail prepared on an oak-fired grill, will all be part of a rustic menu that will change seasonally. Paying homage to a true English pub, Chef Ramsay made sure a steak & ale pie, sticky toffee pudding and of course, the ale-battered fish & chips were included on his menu in Atlantic City.

DEBBIE 'BLONDIE' HARRY TO PLAY ATLANTIC CITY

Debbie Harry AKA Blondie




In a move that will leave music fans in Rapture, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band Blondie continue their 40th Anniversary celebration with a show at Tropicana Atlantic City. Be a part of music history as icons Debbie Harry, Chris Stein and Clem Burke take the stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 24, 2014.



For the last four decades, Blondie has become and still remains a true national treasure; a punk band from New York City whose influence both shaped and continues to inform the worlds of music, fashion and art. Blondie pushed punk onto the dance floor at the dawn of the new wave era and introduced a wider audience to hip-hop sounds, all the while building a catalog of enduring pop hits along the way.



Their instincts, attitude and style are just as sharp today. The band will salute its storied past with a live concert featuring both brand-new tracks and timeless classics like the groundbreaking rock-disco hybrid “Heart of Glass,” the equally influential hip-hop fantasia “Rapture,” the stalker-love song “One Way Or Another” and the lilting calypso “The Tide Is High,” all part of a catalog that has generated sales of more than 40 million records worldwide and led to the group’s 2006 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.



Later this Spring, Blondie will release a double-disc anniversary package entitled Blondie 4(0) Ever, featuring a brand new album and a greatest hits disc.



Tickets to see Blondie go on sale Wednesday, April 9th at 10 a.m. and are $65, $75 and $115. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or via phone at 1.800.736.1420, or at the Tropicana Box Office.

GRAVEDIGGER WINS AT ATLANTIC CITY CINEFEST

****
Atlantic City Cinefest
Downbeach Film Festival
****

Keith Collins With Awards




Atlantic City Cinefest Downbeach Film Festival is always a great look into the future of independent films. A wide variety of solid features and quirky shorts play throughout the three-day event and this year was no exception. One film that stood out to us was the feature Horror/Thriller “Gravedigger”, which walked away with Best Thriller Award & Best Actor.


Directed by Doug Bollinger (“Waltzing Anna”) and produced by Keith Collins, Gravedigger is a gritty, slasher film that has two elements most independent horror films lack – a great story and a great look. Written by Billy and Joseph Pepitone (“Stuck in the Middle”), Gravedigger is as much a thriller as it is a bloodfest and avoids the typical serial killer clichés while still staying true to the genre with still giving you the gore that you crave.


Filmed in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, the fictional town of Breaker’s Point comes alive thanks to cinematography of Brandon Ruckdashel (“Co-Ed Confidential”). Ruckdashel who also plays “D.A Mike Ruble” has a great eye and his style is unique, adding a big budget feel to this independent film.


The acting in Gravedigger is a breath of fresh air. If you are expecting the usual indie movie talent, you will be surprised by the performances in this film. With Many special appearances by TV Personalities, Former Sports Stars, Reality Stars & more Gravedigger most certainly delivers. Keith Collins plays “Steve Borden” with his performance gained him the best actor award in a NJ Feature Film, Delivers a cunning edgy performance that creepily pulls the audience in and keeps you captivated while wanting more. Angela Sharp who plays “Det. Carolynne Richards”, puts on a performance none to be reckoned with. Sharp brings this role to life while keeping you glued to the screen throughout the film as the very memorable sidekick to “Chief George Orkin”, played by Jim McKeown who is the worn out police chief on the hunt to solve the case. John Stoerback plays Mob Boss “Charles Muzzatti” just watching Stoerback on screen gives you that erring feeling in your stomach wondering if you are going to get wacked. Former NY Yankee Billy Sample plays Mayor Benjamin Barnes and is a perfect fit. “Samantha Owens” played by newcomer Katelyn Pearce is sexy and talented – a rare combination in a horror film.


Gravedigger is driven by an intense music score that adds rock and roll creepiness to the entire film. Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, lead guitarist of (“Guns N’ Roses”) lends upmost precision and his original music to the film. You don’t get that kind of musical talent in many independent films and with all the perfection going on in Gravedigger it shows that it is a key element of the film.


After success on the film festival circuit, I’m sure Gravedigger we will be seeing gravedigger available to the public in 2014.


Gravedigger is Directed by, Doug Bollinger (“Waltzing Anna”). Produced by, Keith Collins. Executive Producers John Stoerback, Michael Levine & Jeff Quinlan (“Bare Knuckles”). Co-Executive Producer Brandon Ruckdashel. Line Producer Theresa Galeani. Written by, Joseph & Billy Pepitone. STARRING:: Keith Collins (“Stuck in the Middle”,”The Meat Puppet”), Brandon Ruckdashel (“Co-Ed Confidential”), Jim McKeown, Angela Sharp, John Stoerback (“The Next Vigilante”), Katelyn Pearce, Rachel Barrer WITH Billy Sample (“Former NY Yankee”) AND Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (“Guns N’ Roses”). Alongside a well-rounded cast with many special appearances Including: Jim Leyritz (Former “NY Yankee”), Brian McRae (Former “NY Met”,”KC Royals”), Annette Dziamba (“The Apprentice”,”Playboy”), Gregg Valentino (TLC’s “The Man Whose Arms Exploded”), Gervase Peterson (“Survivor, Season One”), Emilio Masella (Oxygen’s “Love Games”), Gary Garver (“formerly from the Howard Stern Show”), Mark Pinkhasovich ( NBC’s “The Biggest Loser”), April Hunter (“WCW”, ”TNA”), Anastasia Smith (“NY Majesty Lingerie Football League”), Theresa Galeani (“Cross the Line”, “I am Legend”), Joe Sernio (“All My Children”), Cindy Fox (“The Naked Cowgirl”), Adam (“Speed bag Scissorhands”) Salomon.
