BROOKS, Calif. – Comedian and actor Sinbad will tell you that he doesn't tells jokes – "I don't know any," he admits – instead, he stalks the stage, telling real-life stories. His comedy has been described as large, physical, and impetuous, and mirrors the everyday lives of the audiences who flock to see his shows. It’s this type of relational comedy that Sinbad will be performing on Jan. 29 at Cache Creek’s intimate Club 88 for what will most likely be a sold out crowd.
Fans of Sinbad may remember his stint on TV’s Star Search, which helped to launch his popular success and led to stand up appearances and acting gigs. He made his big screen debut in the 1991 gridiron comedy "Necessary Roughness," with other motion picture credits including "Houseguest," "First Kid" and Jingle All The Way" as well as a cameo in "Coneheads." He was also the voice of the canine Riley in "Homeward Bound II."
On television, he starred in the title role of the "Cherokee Kid" on HBO, and was the star and executive producer of his own acclaimed Fox TV sitcom, "The Sinbad Show" and "Sinbad's Summer Jam Weekend II" airing also on HBO. "Sinbad's Summer Jam" won the prestigious NAACP Image Award consecutively for two years in the "Most Outstanding Variety Series/Special" category.
Sinbad, who has built a loyal following with sold-out comedy shows and has gone from being one of America's best-loved and funniest comedians to national stardom on television and movies, is also a recipient of the Harvard University's 1997 "Artist of the Year" award and the 1994 "Candle" award from Morehouse College honoring his excellence in Arts and Entertainment. Loved by audiences nation-wide, this experienced performer is sure to provide plenty of laughs for his fans during his one night stand at Cache Creek.

Singer Keith Sweat set to take the stage at Cache Creek
BROOKS, Calif. – Harlem born R&B singer Keith Sweat worked his way from an ordinary 9-to-5 job at the New York Stock Exchange to super stardom in the late 80s. Working during the day and singing in nightclubs at night, he was discovered in 1987 and released his debut album “Make It Last Forever,” which went on to sell four million copies.
The biggest hit from this album, "I Want Her," hit #1 on the R&B charts and #5 on the Pop charts and the title track from the album went on to hit #2 on the R&B charts. Sweat continued to chart fairly well with his sophomore album, “I'll Give All My Love to You,” which hit #3 on the Billboard 200 chart, and “Keep It Comin’,” which debuted in the Top 20 of the album chart. Sweat released subsequent albums “Get Up On It,” and his self-titled fifth album, “Keith Sweat” which hit #5 on the Billboard 200. From that album, the single "Twisted" hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and "Nobody" also hit at #3.
In the years that followed, Sweat managed and produced several other artists in addition to touring nation-wide. Fans of his distinct R&B style will have the chance to hear Sweat perform when he makes a stop at Cache Creek Casino Resort’s intimate Club 88 on Saturday, January 16th at 8 p.m.
