All signs are pointing to more and more entertainment opening up. Here is our first New England Casino Entertainment Schedule, 2021, May & June.
It’s exciting to think that some of the large and small entertainment venues we took for granted before 2020 are getting ready to get cranking again. Over a year ago, NETimeGambling published its last entertainment post. And while the list of performers and events is a pittance from what we’re used to pumping out, it’s great to get started again.
Performers and Vendors Hit the Hardest
One of the industries that have been most affected by the pandemic is the entertainment industry. The industry has had to vastly adapt to the situation to continue operating as best as possible, with many unable to continue. As a result, many bars have closed, large venues closed, and performers had to endure a very long unintentional sabbatical.
Jay Pagliuca, the owner of JP Lighting and Sounds and co-owner of Gaslight Entertainment, said, “We’ve all drawn back into our homes and our local businesses. Broadway gets more press, but [not] local entertainers and local bands. I talked to one, who said, ‘we’ve got nothing’ – [the same for] a lot of small bands and local entertainers.”
The pandemic continues to keep nightclubs closed. COVID-19 shutdowns specifically targeted indoor entertainment establishments and performing arts venues. As a result, event-related businesses such as photography and videography studios, florists, limo services, event planning companies and rentals, and performers saw a very lean 2020.
However, little by little, stages are opening up while protocols are starting to be relaxed due to many Americans being vaccinated.

WNBA Games Will Have Fans in Seats
Yes, last season’s “Wubble” in Florida provided for the WNBA to have a season. But this year will be much better. The CT Sun plays their home games at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Therefore, only season ticket holders will be there in person, even though most fans will be seated in the upper bowl’s blue seats. For the CT Sun Schedule, click here.
Headliners are now listed for late summer and fall at Mohegan Sun & Foxwoods. For more info, go to their entertainment website.
As the year continues, we hope to have more options to report in our monthly New England Casino Entertainment Schedule. Until then, get your groove on where to can.
