With portion of
proceeds benefiting American Red Cross, Mardi Gras-themed grand opening night
will feature progressive dinner and 20-person American musical performance group
PGA National Resort & Spa
will introduce its new iClub Piano Bar to the public at a one-of-a-kind dining
and entertainment experience, PartiGras, on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 6:30-10 p.m.
This Mardi Gras-themed evening will feature the 20-person American musical
performance group MarchFourth Marching Band, which will lead guests throughout
the resort grounds for a progressive dinner of Cajun-inspired cuisine.
Recognized as “one of the nation’s best live touring acts” and a “kaleidoscope
of musical and visual energy,” the dynamic jazz-fusion band has performed with
Fleetwood Mac, Balkan Beat Box, Pink Martini, No Doubt, KISS, Blink 182, The
Neville Brothers and many others.
PartiGras guests will be the first to discover PGA
National’s new iClub Piano Bar, a supper club-style venue featuring live music,
light bites, decadent desserts and cocktails. Vocalists and musicians from iClub
will perform at each stop along the way.
“Nothing beats the thrill of live entertainment,” says
David Fine, senior vice president of sales, marketing
and revenue at PGA National Resort & Spa. “PartiGras guests
will be amazed by the theatrics of MarchFourth and seduced by the talents of our
iClub Piano Bar musicians. And this evening will be just a taste of things to
come at this exciting new addition to our hospitality offerings at PGA
Located in the main lobby, iClub Piano Bar will be open Thursday through
Saturday from 6-9 p.m., offering locals and resort guests
world-class entertainment and hospitality in an atmosphere reminiscent of
classic piano bars. The lounge will be enclosed in glass walls and comprise
seats for 40-50 guests, creating an intimate ambience to enjoy great acoustics
alongside cocktails, tapas and desserts.
Following recent $100-million property-wide renovations,
iClub Piano Bar joins a trifecta of offerings at PGA National that invite guests
to “linger longer,” including the signature Wine Spectator-awarded restaurant,
Ironwood Steak & Seafood, and iBAR, one of the most buzzed-about bars in
Aside from their marching band-themed costumes, as well
as the five-piece percussion corps and seven-part brass section, MarchFourth is
far from a “marching band” in any traditional sense. The 20-person group is
anchored by funky electric bass and has been evolving into a more guitar- and
vocal-driven musical experience. The show at PGA National will take guests on a
journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the
gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil,
echoing American funk, rock and jazz and then boiling it all together in
cinematic fashion with high-stepping stilt-acrobatics and dazzling dancers.
Single tickets to PartiGras are $95 in advance or $120
at the door and include entertainment; Cajun-inspired fare; unlimited beer and
non-alcoholic beverages; and one specialty cocktail. Special room packages,
starting at $325, comprise two tickets to the event and resort room
accommodations. A portion of all proceeds from the evening will benefit the
American Red Cross.
