American Towns

Dan Rooney’s Sports Bar at Empire City Casino was presented with the 2013 Best Live Music Award at a recent reception held by the Yonkers Chamber of Commerce. The restaurant opened in March as part of Empire City Casino’s $50 million expansion and has quickly become a favorite among diners, not only for its award winning cuisine – the Dan Rooney’s Burger was the pick of famed chef panelists at last year’s Greenwich Food & Wine Festival Burger Bash – but also for its unique live entertainment.

Empire City announced that Dan Rooney’s will expand their live music program adding Country Music Thursday Nights to the award-winning entertainment lineup beginning September 19.

The widely-popular dueling piano performances on Friday and Saturday nights which sparked the Best Live Music Award will continue from 9:00pm-12:15am on both nights. The Klash of the Keys Happy Hour specials continue from 9:00pm-11:00pm.

Get your cowboy boots ready when the country band performances debut on Thursday, September 19 from 8:00pm to midnight with Nashville Drive. The following week, Thursday, September 26, the Rachael Allyn Band will perform.
