MONTICELLO - When election day rolls around this November, casino advocates will get their chance to vote ‘yes’ if they would like to have more casinos in certain regions of New York State. The Catskill/Hudson Valley Region, if approved, would get two new casinos. The casinos would bring in new jobs and revenue for the region, as well as top notch national entertainment.

A perfect example of such entertainment was on display recently at Casino Royale Nite at Monticello Raceway Casino’s Lava Lounge. The featured act is the immensely popular regional act "Soul City" and their tribute to Motown and Watt/Staxx songs and artist. The group includes Angie Moger, Bobby Jimenez, and Madalene Phaelen. The seven-piece show band had the standing-room-only crowd and dance floor packed.
