Dakota, Tommy Steele and Jasmine Cain are among the artists scheduled to perform on Sunday, September 2nd

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is proud to announce the debut of the first RadioBOLD Music Festival at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on Sunday, September 2nd. This first-of-its-kind event will be a celebration of music and radio like never before and is set to take place at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs’ outdoor patio and Racetrack Apron beginning at 1:00pm.   The event will feature multiple bands, multiple music formats and genres, giveaways and a very special “coming home” reunion performance by the popular 80s group, Dakota.  The event is a listener appreciation party in celebration of the newly-released and revolutionary RadioBOLD Mobile App which allows listeners to uniquely access all Bold Gold radio stations throughout Pennsylvania and New York, including 105 The River…“Powered By Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs.” Tickets to the event will be FREE, with ticket pick-up locations throughout northeast Pennsylvania and New York being announced soon.

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is excited to feature such a great combination of music genres from each Bold Gold radio station. The outdoor patio and Racetrack Apron at Mohegan Sun is the perfect spot to host the exclusive live performances scheduled for Dakota, Country artist Tommy Steele and Nashville rocker Jasmine Cain. The evening will close out with The Party on The Patio’s Billy Joel and Elton John tribute band, Face to Face and an amazing fireworks display.  Listeners will get the chance to win major prizes throughout the event and have an opportunity to interact with their favorite on-air personalities from each Bold Gold radio station, as well as with the musical acts.

It’s been 25 years since Dakota played their farewell show at Montage Mountain in Moosic, PA to over 17,000 fans.  Several members of The Buoys, who had a major hit with the Rupert Holmes written song, “Timothy,” went on to form Dakota, releasing their self-titled album in 1980. The single, “If It Takes All Night,” peaked on the Billboard charts at #78. Soon after, the band was asked to do a last minute fill-in opening for the legendary band Queen during “The Game” tour, which was so successful that Dakota opened for the next 35 tour dates worldwide.

Michigan native and country artist Tommy Steele has shared the stage with superstars like Leann Rimes and Gretchen Wilson, opened for popular Country band Big & Rich and performed at the CMA Festival in Nashville. Following the release of his first CD, The Long Haul, Steele’s two hit singles “Forever 17” and “What Kind of Man Would I Be,” generated features in Country Weekly, MusicRow and Magazine of Country Music.  His latest single, “My Side of The Street,” is currently climbing the MusicRow charts.

Rocker Jasmine Cain’s natural ability to capture and hold the attention of audiences has contributed to her current success as Just Plain Folks Association’s “Female Artist of the Year and two-time “Female Rock Vocalist” at Nashville’s Music City Mayhem.  With three self-released albums (The Inside, Locks & Keys and Highway Prophet) and a newly-released music video for her title track single, “Highway Prophet”, Jasmine Cain has sold over 20,000 albums and gained 5,000 views in the first week of her music video.

The first RadioBOLD Music Festival will be held on the patio and Racetrack Apron at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs on Sunday, September 2nd.Doors will open at 1:00pm.  Mohegan Sun is located at 1280 Highway 315 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
