The Mickey Gilley Show

March 6, 8:00 PM, Casino Regina Show Lounge

For most of his career, pianist/vocalist Mickey Gilley lived in the shadow of his cousin, Jerry Lee Lewis, playing a similar fusion of country, rock, blues, and R&B. In the early '70s, he managed to break through into country stardom, but it wasn't until the late '70s when he became associated with the urban cowboy movement that he became a superstar.

In 1974, Gilley had a hit with "Room Full of Roses," which was released on Astro Records. Playboy Records, which was distributed by Epic, heard the record and acquired national distribution for the single. It became a #1 country hit, crossing over to #50 on the pop charts. "Room Full of Roses" launched a string of updated, countrypolitan-inflected honkytonk hits for Gilley that ran for just over a decade. Gilley racked up 16 number one hits!

Songs: "I Overlooked an Orchid," "City Lights," "She's Pulling Me Back Again," "True Love Ways," "Stand by Me," "That's All That Matters," and "A Headache Tomorrow (Or a Heartache Tonight)."
