Kenichi Ebina Performing Live At Pechanga Resort & Casino

Back in June of last year, Kenichi Ebina showed up on American television screens and proved that he was a force to be reckoned with. The 39-year-old dancer quickly gained an impressive fanbase while competing in the 8th season of America’s Got Talent.

His audition video has over 25 million views thus far. With an audition video going viral and a standing ovation from the judges, there was simply no denying Ebina’s talent. He plowed through the competition with performances that ranged from high-energy and fast-paced dances to slow and emotional routines.

On September 18, 2013, the humble and talented dancer was announced the winner of America’s Got Talent season 8. This was not a surprise for many viewers. After all, Ebina had been dancing since 2001 when he formed an award-winning dance group “BiTriP.”

So what has he been up to?

Apparently, Ebina has been quite active since his win. He has performed at many events and on TV shows internationally, taught dance in numerous countries, and directed and choreographed routines for theater companies.

But now, he’s ready to put on a show.

Ebina will perform two special “Kenichi Ebina Dance-ish Entertainment” performances on April 12 and 13 in the Pechanga Theater at Pechanga Resort & Casino.

Pechanga recently went through a multimillion dollar make-over which included a renovation of the hotel lobby, two restaurants and the addition of two more dining outlets. Although the resort may look new and improved, it still sticks with its core values of being “an Asian friendly destination with a great Asian host team and many Asian concerts for guests of different ethnicities.”

Needless to say, this show is sure to be a success.

Expect to see a thrilling performance by this solo, self -taught dance performer. Kenichi Ebina started out dancing Freestyle Hip-Hop and expanding to Poppin’, Lockin’, Mime, House, Jazz,  Contemporary and Ethnic dance. His unique style of dance combines different illusion effects of  sound, light and visual. He frequently interacts with characters on a huge video screen behind him, who have all been created and played by himself. His dance tactics entertain audiences who were not even interested in performing arts.

 

Tickets are $30, $45, $60 and $80 and go on sale Tuesday, February 25 at 3:00p.m. Tickets may be purchased in person at the Pechanga Box Office between 12:00p.m. and 8:00p.m., via telephone at (877) 711-2946 or online at www.Pechanga.com/Entertainment.

Unveiling The Multimillion Dollar Renovation of Pechanga Resort & Casino

California’s largest resort and casino recently went through a make-over. The results? It looks more gorgeous than we could have imagined.

The multimillion dollar make-over included a renovation of the hotel lobby, two restaurants and the addition of two more dining outlets. As you can expect, all this took quite some work, but Pechanga put all their efforts into making the renovation as smooth as possible.  For instance, Pechanga closed itself down for four months to hasten the construction process.

In honor of this successful renovation, Pechanga invited members of the press for a one-day event to experience the unveiling of the resort first-hand. We were lucky enough to take part in this alongside nearly 100 media attendees.

During the media tour, we met with a number of key resort leaders who were happy to shed some light on the recent renovation. For instance, Lee Torres, Vice President of Marketing at Pechanga, reassured us that although the renovation took quite some time and effort, the resort is happy with their decision. He added that their goal is to “continuously reinvest in the company and the site.”

Greg Leung, Director of Asian Marketing at Pechanga, stated in that the renovation aligned with Pechanga’s goal to “make every guest feel as comfortable as possible.”

“Pechanga focuses on building relationships within the community.” Torres added. This can easily be seen with KoreAm Journal‘s annual Pro-Am event which is held at Pechanga’s professional golf course. This is only one of the many ways in which Pechanga supports the various Asian communities.

Additionally, Pechanga caters to the authenticity of the various Asian cultures with resort ambassadors who converse in native languages. In fact, one of the most delightful aspects of the tour were the resort ambassadors/hosts who dressed in their culture’s traditional clothing.

The media showcase allowed us to tour the newly transformed areas, all dressed up for the Lunar New Year, and experience the transformed Asian restaurant, Blazing Noodles.

On the menu were items such as Roasted Duck Noodle Soup, Oxtail with Red Wine Sauce, Poached Duck Wings, Duck Tongue, Tofu, Pork Belly, Orange Chicken, Chinese Beef Broccoli, Pad Thai, Fried Rice and more.

Clearly, there are many reasons to visit the new-and-improved Pechanga Resort & Casino. Incredible food, beautiful renovations and a goal to cater to the various Asian communities? They certainly gained a fan.
