Get Your Groove On With Donna Summer at Chumash Casino Resort

The uncontested queen of disco, Donna Summer, is coming to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom on June 25. Tickets are on sale now.

Summer’s sultry voice and music defined the 1970s disco era and made her one of the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. Disco hits like “Love to Love You Baby,” “Last Dance” and “Bad Girls” earned the singer-songwriter five Grammy awards and three consecutive No. 1 platinum albums, making her the only artist to do so. She is back on tour with her first album in 17 years.

“Crayons” is a mix of different musical styles from pop to dance tracks. “Every song is a different color,” Summer said. “Since I’m also a visual artist, the title ties a lot of the loose ends of my life together.”

Born LaDonna Adrian Gaines in Boston, Mass., Summer was trained as a gospel singer and grew up listening to jazz, country, rock ‘n’ roll and classical music. Although known mostly for her disco singles, Summer continued recording ballads, rock and other music for Casablanca Records during her musical career.

The Chumash Casino Resort, on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, is open to those age 18 or older. Tickets, ranging in price from $55 to $105, are available by visiting the resort’s Club Chumash, by clicking here or by calling StarTicketsPlus at 800.585.3737.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
