Sugar Ray among three acts announced for The Vine in May

On Tuesday, the del Lago Resort & Casino team announced three exciting acts that will be coming to The Vine, located on State Rt. 414 in Tyre.

Dwight Yoakam, Neil Sedaka, and Sugar Ray will all take the stage in May – as they announce another wave of performances at the 2,400-person facility.

Yoakam will perform May 13th, with Neil Sedaka taking the stage on May 19th and Sugar Ray closing this trio of performers out on May 27th.

Tickets for all three shows will go on sale Friday, March 24 at 12 noon and may be purchased in person at the del Lago Resort & Casino box office, by calling the box office at 315-946-1695 or online at dellagoresort.com/entertainment.

Singer, songwriter, composer, pianist and author —these are just a few of the titles that can be used to describe Neil Sedaka. His impressive fifty-year career ranges from being one of the first teen pop sensations of the 50’s, a relevant songwriter for himself and other artists in the 60’s, a superstar in the 70’s, remaining a constant force in writing and performing presently.

This is all thanks to the countless songs he has written, performed, and produced that continue to inspire artists and audiences around the world. The accolades showered on Sedaka have been numerous. Among the honors he has received, Sedaka has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, has had a street named after him in his hometown of Brooklyn, and was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

When “Sugar Ray’s” breakthrough hit song “Fly” put them on the map in 1997, lead vocalist Mark McGrath was thrust into the public eye.  McGrath first appeared with Sugar Ray (then known as the Shrinky Dinx) when he jumped on stage and grabbed the microphone. 

Two years later, in 1994, the band changed its name and landed a deal with Atlantic Records.  Following the success of their number-one hit, Sugar Ray released its second album, “Floored,” which went double-platinum and then “14:59” which went triple-platinum with hit singles “Every Morning,” “Someday” and “Falls Apart.” 

Their success continued with the release of the self-titled album, “Sugar Ray,” which garnered the band it’s first-ever top-10 album.  Sugar Ray continues delivering the hits live and with the Summerland tour which combines great bands from the 90’s and their top 10 hits, a big hit.
