Ed Asner as FDR at Stockton

Ed Asner is an iconic figure and multi-Emmy winner for his work on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Lou Grant. For the last three years he has been bringing another iconic figure to life in the one-man show FDR, about Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The play will be presented at the Stockton Performing Arts Center on Saturday, oct. 22, 7:30pm. tickets are $30 and $45. In a phone conversation Asner talked about his career and playing FDr. “I didn’t do any research initially other than my constant worship of FDr,” says Asner. “Subsequently, I’ve read a number of books and I’m delighted to say that the script is not butchering the facts. There was a vast and huge ego there but most of the time he used it benevolently.“ Asked what the biggest challenge was learning to play FDR, Asner says: “Well, I don’t look like him and I don’t sound like him. those are a couple of big hurdles I have to get over, but I’m glad to say most people don’t have any complaints by the time they see the show. ... When I first started with the show I’d be out there for 10 or 15 minutes, I’d think, ‘Jesus christ, I’ve got to be out here alone for another hour and a half!’ then I buckle up and continue on. Finally, Asner talks about how his perception of the importance of FDR in American history has changed: “they’ve only been reinforced. As a sophomore coming home from high school I heard the news [that FDr died]. You thought, ‘What will happen to America?’ How will America ever be as great as it was under roosevelt?’” For more of this interview go to — Lori Hoffman

‘Old Brooklyn’ (Shefa)

Sunday, Oct. 23, marks the start of an event intended to become an integral part of the ensign John r. elliott Hero Campaign for Designated Drivers — an organization founded 11 years ago in memory of a young man killed by a drunken driver in July 2000. the Hero Walk is a 5K walk along the Ocean City Boardwalk from 6th Street to 20th Street and back. Registration will be at 6th street from 8-10am, or you can go to or call 233-4787 to pre-register. The walk will take place from roughly 10am-noon, and there will be family activities and entertainment from 8am-noon. “We’re hoping for 1,000 people to come out and help us raise $100,000 for the Hero campaign and its life-saving message, ‘be a hero, be a designated driver,’” says bill elliott, chairman of the Hero campaign and ensign John elliott’s father. “We hope that this will turn in to an annual event for many years to come, so we hope you’ll come out and join us.” According to richard Stockton college’s associate dean of students Stephen Davis, the college hopes to assemble the walk’s biggest group of supporters in its inaugural year. “Stockton College plans to have a team made up of several student organizations and student leaders, and we look forward to having the biggest team there of hopefully 45 to 50 students,” says Davis. This year David talerico, a junior Stockton, was selected the outstanding Designated Driver of the Hero campaign as nominated by his fellow students. If you cannot participate in the walk but would like to contribute, mail a check to: Hero campaign, P.o. box 700, Somers Point, NJ, 08244. Make checks payable to the John r. elliott Foundation. — Ray Schweibert

Bluegrass played with sonic accents of Klezmer, swerving its way into jazz and, at times, slipping into an old-time country rag is a musical route prevalent on Old Brooklyn, the new 2-CD record by the ultra-talented Andy Statman. The composer, mandolinist and clarinetist, along with his crack bass-drum-guitar-fiddle band line-up (in addition to guests such as Ricky Skaggs, Bela Fleck and Paul Shaffer) considers several different (but related) roots-music traditions throughout the dazzling set. “It draws from jazz and improvised music,” says Statman. “You know, every genre has its own emotional and structural categories.” And several are well-represented and magnificently explored on this daring set, which at various points conjures up the ghosts of Bill Monroe, Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, Charles Mingus, Vassar Clements and the history of Ellis Island. Both the original tunes and traditional selections here tell a story — about the evolution of music, America seen through the eyes of early immigrants and the extraordinary power that surfaces when different cultures come together as one. —Jeff Schwachter

t’s not that comedian Kathleen Madigan isn’t grateful for the gig when she christens the new showroom at the Golden nugget on saturday (oct. 22). she knows it’s an honor to be the first performer to work the intimate, 450-seat venue that was once the shell showroom when the property was trump marina. But left to her own devices, madigan would prefer to crack her jokes and spin her stories in a room that’s got some real history behind it. “i really love those old, cool, 1,200 to 1,500 seaters with the red seats that are very ornate” and were built back in the art deco era of the 1920s and ’30s, madigan tells Atlantic City Weekly. “You find them in towns you wouldn’t even think would have a place like that,” she adds. “in the 1920s, this country had tons of money ... and you find these [theaters] in places like York, Pa.; Lancaster, Pa.; or the count Basie [theater in Red Bank], or the new Jersey state theater [in new Brunswick]. i just did one of those old theaters in saginaw, michigan, and it was amazing. i think it’s just awesome that those places are being saved and not wrecked and replaced with something that’s sterile and boring.” comedy seems to play better in the older rooms than in a newer performing-arts facility, she explains, because people seem to get into a better mood in a theater with some history behind it. “if you take a performing-arts theater in the midwest that was built in 1990, sure, it’s new and it’s nice, but it’s also so sterile,” she explains. “there’s no soul there yet [and] that just takes time for a building to have a vibe or something.” the newer facilities generally don’t offer drink service during the shows, she adds, which means guests who want to wet their whistle have to wait until an intermission. “i’d rather they have a drink in the theater instead of having to go out at half time and get a drink,” madigan says. “this isn’t the opera. have a beer, i don’t care.” though they may lack the soul and personality of a theater that’s nearly 100 years old, casino showrooms, new or old, usually aren’t “sterile and boring,” madigan says. much of that has to do with the fact that in a casino showroom, guests can usually have a drink during the show, even if it means getting the beverage at a bar outside the venue and bringing it in. essentially, the more the audience drinks, the funnier madigan’s material becomes, she says with a laugh during a recent phone call. madigan, 46, has a pretty good frame of Like us:

reference from which to draw her observations about various venues around the country. a seasoned road warrior, she’s been performing her comedy for more than 20 years and spends up to 300 days a year traveling from one gig to the next. she’s a veritable comedy machine, constantly writing slice-of-life observational material mostly for herself, but — when time permits — for a handful of other comics, too. on her short list of fellow comedians for whom she’ll write is Lewis Black. madigan says she can only write for a comedian if she can hear their voice in her head, and she’s always been very comically connected with Black. “i can think the way Lewis thinks, and i can write when i hear those words coming out of his mouth,” she says of Black, who generally channels his anger — especially at politicians — into comedy. “Lewis will say anything and he’s never afraid of an audience’s reaction to his opinion,” she adds. “some stuff that i think of is very funny, but i would never say it because it would upset half the people in the room, usually regarding politics. and i’m non-confrontational, and Lewis is confrontational. Good for Lewis. i don’t want to get involved in any of that, but i like to write it for him and then watch him do it.” occasionally, she’ll write a joke for Black or Garry Shandling, hear them perform it and get big laughs and then wishes she could take the line back. “i’ll think to myself, ‘oh, that was a really good joke, what was i thinking? i shouldn’t have given it to him,” she says with a laugh. madigan, who remains the only comedian in the history of nBc’s Last Comic Standing to go unchallenged by any other comedian — meaning no other comedian could say they were funnier — says it was fun for her to return to the show as a judge during the show’s fifth season, but that was strictly a oneand-done affair. she doesn’t have the heart to sit in critical judgment of a fellow comic. “i just can’t think of 2,000 ways to tell someone they’re not funny without turning into a full blown alcoholic,” she says. n

the people would rush in. now you have to manage, manage, manage and give the players the experience and promotions they’re looking for. that’s the challenge.” one bit of strategy worked well for the casino. since the jackpot hit $300,000, only 30 percent of the bad-beat rake has been going to the jackpot. While that slowed the growth of the jackpot and kept it from getting into record setting territory (about $670,000), it ensured that the reserve to reset the jackpot would put the trop back in the bad-beat hunt. When it hit, the jackpot reset to $241,000, already the second highest jackpot in the city behind the borgata. “by christmas, i’d like to see it back up there again,” says Pearlman. While that was a perfect storm for the trop, the city’s perfect storm was enhanced by two other bad-beat jackpot hits. the taj Mahal’s bad-beat jackpot hit Wednesday, oct. 12, for $200,276.56. Quad fives lost to quad eights (remember, the taj has the old-fashioned minimum of quad deuces) and a guy named tom Miller won $100,138.50. the hand winner won $50,069.25 and seven other players at the table won $7,152.75. Finally, the caesars entertainment combined bad-beat jackpot hit Friday (oct. 14). it’s the seventh hit of the combined bad-beat jackpot since early august and the second hit since oct. 3. the jackpot was $143,593. the minimum hand was set at quad 10s. the winning hand was four queens beating four jacks. the bad-beat winner got $43,409 and the winning hand was paid $29,150. there were 111 players in the four caesars rooms and each was paid $631. the highest bad-beat jackpot in the city is at the borgata with $310,000 as of Monday, oct. 17. it’s the only bad-beat jackpot in the city that didn’t hit last week. You have to figure it’s due. To keep up to date on Atlantic City poker news and bad-beat totals visit Atlantic City Weekly’s poker blog, “The Real Deal” at n

ver since the 1997 book and the following 2000 film The Perfect Storm came out, the term has become a cliché for any time things line up just right and then go a little crazy. Well, last week, atlantic city’s bad-beat jackpots went major crazy as $885,000 in jackpots were paid out Wednesday to Friday, oct. 12-14. three major hits, including the largest bad-beat jackpot in the city, the tropicana’s $543,000 jackpot, hit in as many days. that, my friends, is a perfect storm of cash. Let’s start with the big one. the tropicana’s jackpot hit at about 4pm thursday for $542,987.23 after what has to be the longest run ever for a major bad-beat jackpot. People have been watching this one for more than two months. the hand came in a $2-$4-$6 limit game when four nines lost to a straight flush. the trop sets the minimum hand for its bad beats at quad eights, so this hand was a long time coming. the bad-beat winner was alan h. silvani of toms river who wins more than $217,000. the hand winner gets $108,500 and eight other players at the crowded table got $27,100. this was the tropicana’s first experience with a large bad-beat jackpot and it pretty much swamped the 40-table room for two months. the previous record at the tropicana was about $330,000. Most days there are only 24 to 27 (on weekends) cash games offered and the room, as you might have guessed, has been packed. but despite that 24/7 buzz and pretty strungout poker room employees, bruce Pearlman, poker room manager for the casino, says he’s sad to see it all end. “actually, i’m kind of sorry to see it hit,” says Pearlman. “i mean i’m happy for the winners and sure, we were working hard, but that’s what we do. the room was full, the players were happy, the dealers were happy. that’s the point of the jackpot, to build some excitement.” the thing that probably made trop officials most happy was the very obvious boost to the room. the poker room brought in a whopping $632,000 for the casino in september, well over $150,000 more than the room usually brings in and almost $90,000 more than the casino’s august numbers, which also saw a bad-beat bump. “the key now is for us to keep the players that we attracted,” says Pearlman. “it’s a different time now with all the competition. You used to be able to swing open the doors and

Tom Pacitti Persevering Having long performed exclusively as a solo acoustic guitarist/vocalist, the local musician has expanded his horizons extensively in recent years. By Ray Schweibert


Like us:

[folk rock singer/songwriter] Jack Johnson really well. “For several years i was just playing acoustic vocal by myself, so it’s been great to do private projects with revolver, play with mitch as a duo over last three years, and now Funkybone turned out to be a real blast. Playing with these guys is awesome, but i still enjoy the solo gigs and i think, for the most part, establishments are becoming more and more favorable to them. it’s affordable, there’s not a space issue and, quite frankly, it’s hard to find a lot of people who do it well. People like Patty blee, Patty balbo, don ellsworth — the acoustic performers who do it really well are now in big demand.” n


see more online @


“this was the first summer in the past seven summers i wasn’t regularly at Crabby Jack’s, but i couldn’t have fit in another gig even if i wanted to,” he says. “Over the past four or five years it’s really taken off for me. it’s been a lot of fun and i’ve had the opportunity to play with some of the best local musicians you’ll find anywhere. “mitch is definitely one of the best guitarists in the area, but once in a while if he can’t make a Funkybone gig i’ll get ernie trionfo or don shaw, who are also both excellent guitarists. this summer i also booked about six gigs with revolver [a popular local band that regularly plays Chickie’s & Pete’s in eht, and Jr’s tavern in somers Point], and mitch and i are working on maybe putting together a dave matthews tribute band. i’ve had several people tell me i play dave matthews and


n a time when budgets are strained and canned music has replaced genuine talent at many venues, some local musicians consider themselves lucky just to line up any gigs that fuel their passion for music, never mind any that actually pay. tom Pacitti, born and raised in brigantine, has been blessed in that regard. a musician for 40 years (having taken up guitar at age eight), Pacitti not only continues to be a fixture as an acoustic soloist at many local establishments, putting personal spins on modern and classicrock hits, he’s since teamed up with other talented artists to perform with varied ensembles at many area hot spots. “i started out playing at the [bygone] Circle [tavern in brigantine, now a CVs] with a band called Powerplay, and after that i started playing solo acoustic vocal,” says Pacitti, an atlantic City high school graduate. “this past summer i was booked tuesday, wednesday and thursday doing solo acoustic at the boardwalk beer garden [outside of Caesars], and solo acoustic saturday afternoons at harry’s [outside bally’s].” Pacitti found the spacious dennis Courtyard off bally’s could easily accommodate a full-sized band, so he assembled Funkybone with guitarist mitch sutton, keyboardist/ saxophonist steve “hooper” Lombardelli (formerly of asbury Park sensation the shakes) and percussionist mike dempsey. Funkybone continues to do regular gigs Friday evenings (5-9pm) at harry’s and saturday afternoons (2-6pm) at the boardwalk beer garden, and Pacitti and sutton occasionally perform as an acoustic duo, including next Friday, Oct. 28, at the tuckahoe inn, where Pacitti appears solo every thursday (5-9pm). the following night, saturday, Oct. 29, Pacitti and Funkybone are playing a halloween party at the upstairs banquet room of Cellar 32 in brigantine starting 9pm. Occasionally Pacitti will fill in for longtime friend, singer/songwriter/guitarist Patty blee (who also grew up in brigantine), or Patty balbo at the Library iii in eht, and has appeared at somers Point hangouts like Caroline’s, 800 bay and Crabby Jack’s in the recent past.

Music for the Soul

Local bands have been capturing the soul of the music of eras gone by being depicted on television. By Raymond Tyler






I experience worth your time and money.

recommended checking out the new band the Jersey Rhythm Devils, who play music inspired by the hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire. However, don’t be surprised if you hear some of their music cross over to HBO’s other hit series, Treme. Treme wrapped its second season this year, and tells the story of post Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. Treme is an outstanding series in which the music of New Orleans plays as important a role as any of the cast members. Blues, bounce, jazz and hip-hop all fuses together in New Orleans and connects generations of people in a way that somehow the directors and musicians have been able to translate very well. While New Orleans has its own feel and flavor, there are a couple of other local musicians and groups I would suggest you listen to who can bring jazz, blues, bounce and something from their soul to make a live musical

Joe Breidenstine of Linwood is a trumpet player who consistently makes “happy music.” The first time I came across Breidenstine, he and his partner on the upright bass did a set of swing music that had me looking for the “A Train” to Harlem. I have seen Breidenstine’s performance cross age and color lines and just captivate listeners with music that speaks to their soul and feet. You can check out a video performance of Joe on his Facebook page, and he’ll also be the opening performer at the Martin Luther King Day of Stars and Service at the Shore Mall on Jan. 16, 2012, starting at 3pm. Veteran Atlantic City musician Eddie Morgan is another sure bet with his band for great music that plays jazz and swing. Again, if you like not only the music of Treme but the spirit of the show, Morgan is a good act to catch. HBO also has two incredible musical themed documentaries playing this

month. First is George Harrison: Living In Harry Belafonte. There are few men livA Material World.

Latz’s By the Bay

Latz Back at the Point

Well known as the former owners of the Knife and Fork in Atlantic City, the Latz family’s first foray into the restaurant industry was in Somers Point. By Frank Gabriel



OU MIGHT BE SURPRISED TO hear Andrew Latz refer to his new Somers Point restaurant as a “return to Bay Avenue.” After all, the Latz family owned and operated Atlantic City’s best-known upscale destination eatery, the Knife and Fork Inn, from 1927 through 2005. What you probably don’t know is this: Prior to their stewardship of the only property at the angled intersection of Atlantic and Pacific Avenues in Atlantic City, they ran another entity called Latz’ Inn here at 800 Bay Avenue — just across the street from their new digs — from 1918 until 1942. Several different menus from Latz’s of that time hang prominently over a first-floor fireplace in this location, formerly Amor, Felicity’s and most notably, Hatteras. They attest to a bygone era of American dining, featuring entrees like panned Somers Point fish, Maryland chicken with fried peaches and broiled jumbo squab with orange surprise, all priced under $2. Andrew, along with wife Adrienne, literally stumbled into this opportunity. Walking after a Bay Avenue brunch outing last spring, they noticed a sign indicating the real estate’s availability. Latz’ bright blue eyes light up describing that epiphany, calling it, “Sort of like Miracle on 34th Street.” And so, in that moment, Latz’s By the Bay was born. After several months of negotiation, they eventually acquired the property mid August and opened doors a little over two weeks ago. That process was

accelerated because Andrew already had a chef in mind, Georgeann Leaming, whom he worked with at Showboat for several years. Leaming, a Woodstown native, is a graduate of Mays Landing’s Academy of Culinary Arts. She also previously owned a catering business in Vineland. Most important, Leaming brought sensibilities that echoed and meshed well with Latz’s. They define their concept as using sustainable seafood, organics and locally grown products to the greatest degree possible. This is readily apparent from their bill of fare, which goes so far as to provide customers with a detailed directory of many sources. Andrew elaborates “I think sustainabil-

ity is a growing market segment. We’re at the right place at the right time for using those resources.” Asked about favorites, Andrew mentions Loch Duart Scottish salmon. Pan seared and served with cardamom scented basmati rice it gets finished via a lime-ginger beurre blanc. His chef favors the scallops, five U-10 day boat bivalves drizzled with a Meyer lemon vinaigrette and accompanied by a warm red lentil salad with fava beans. Adrienne raves about the Berkshire Farms pork chop, marinated with an herbal blend of thyme, chives and basil. Grilled, it rides with sautéed sweet and hot peppers and a fig/apple glace. The building itself, which had fallen

into disrepair, has been invigorated as well. Outside, earthy tones of pale green and olive beckon. Within, a beachy, white theme breathes energy and life into a room already possessing a sweeping bay view. The second-floor space, smaller with skylights and plenty of privacy, instantly becomes a desirable, romantic dining spot. Walls in both rooms feature rotating works of art from nearby Great Bay Gallery, available for purchase by customers. Seating just over eighty, Latz’s overall atmosphere is quite intimate, or, as Andrew characterizes it “A fresh Cape May-style BYOB that will appeal to customers from Longport, Margate and Ventnor.” He adds, “Since we left the Knife and Fork, we really wanted to try a different business.” Next up on his agenda will be the addition of a prix fixe, early-bird tapas menu. Expected to debut Oct. 25, it will be available at $15.95 for four courses Tuesday through Friday. Leaming expects to include some pared-down portions from existing selections, plus additions like fish fritters, pumpkin bread pudding and a traditional Spanish cheese plate with Serrano ham, Manchego cheese and quince jam. Once warmer weather returns next spring, Andrew already has plans for long-neglected square of patio to the rear of the kitchen. Expect to see greenery in the form of an herb and flower garden plus outside seating, particularly during brunch service. n

The legendary alt-rockers are back with a new album and tour, and according to guitarist Dave Navarro, the band has ‘moved forward.’ By Ed Condran

ock band reunions are tricky.

“They’re usually about one thing,” former Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson once said, “money. I doubt that you’ll ever see a Replacements reunion but if you did, it would be all for money.” For a reunion to work, much is required. A band should look, sound and deliver the energy it provided during its peak. It’s a bonus if the band members get along and it’s laudable if the act releases a decent album. Jane’s Addiction is one of the few bands to reunite that meets all of the aforementioned criteria. During a reunion show three years ago at the Austin music confab, South By Southwest, Jane’s Addiction delivered a

“I think we have moved forward in new directions, but we’ve also have some of the common threads that go back to our early days. It worked out well in terms of a balancing act.” - Dave Navarro

Like us:

“A tour with us just doing ‘The Mountain Song’ and songs like that wouldn’t be that interesting for us or our fans. We need to move on and do something to keep this alive. It’s not hard for us. The creative spark is definitely still there. We just have to tap into it and this time we did and it’s worked out really well.” Jane’s Addiction, which has played stadiums and arenas for much of its run, is looking forward to playing a tour full of club shows. “It’s fun to do the intimate shows,” Navarro says. “We’ve done so many shows at really big places and there is a difference. It’s cool to see a band you really love in an intimate setting.” Navarro is enjoying life in the band at this point since he’s cleaned up his act. He doesn’t recall much from the band’s late 1980s heyday. “I wasn’t too lucid back then,” Navarro admits. “But a lot of people weren’t too lucid then. That was the way it was in 1989 and 1990. I was young, we were getting really big and I had fun. But I appreciate things more now. I remember things now. I take better care of myself

and that’s something I need to do. I’m in a really good place at the moment.” Navarro has carved out a niche in television courtesy of his rock stardom. He co-hosted Rock Star: INXS and Rock Star: Supernova with Brooke Burke. Navarro appeared as a director of a Rock ’N’ Roll Fantasy Camp for a Citbank commercial. The work is right up the charismatic and playful Navarro’s alley. “All of that stuff has been a great deal of fun,” Navarro says. “None of it was a major stretch. I have good memories from it. It’s all part of a really good life that I’ve had. I really appreciate it. You can’t take anything for granted. That’s why it’s been great that there’s always been something really cool for me to do year after year. “This is one of the most fun years I’ve had.” A Jane's Addiction concert after-party, with live music provided by the rockabilly outfit Full Blown Cherry, will be held at the Foundation Room at the House of Blues following the show.

modern sonic touches. “I think we have moved forward in new directions, but we’ve also have some of the common threads that go back to our early days,” Navarro says. “It worked out well in terms of a balancing act.” Three quarters of the on-again, off-again act are present. Navarro will be flanked by long time co-conspirators, vocalist Perry Farrell and drummer Stephen Perkins. Chris Chaney is the group’s latest bassist. “We feel really good together right now,” Navarro says. “There’s no reason for us not to stick around for awhile. We really had fun making this album. We definitely have something special here.” Expect a blitz of Jane’s Addiction’s muscular and quirky favorites such as “Ocean,” “Jane Says,” “Stop” and “Had a Dad.” “We love playing the songs people really want to hear,” Navarro says. “We’re playing some new stuff and we’re definitely going back to our older material.” It wouldn’t be surprising to find Jane’s Addiction making more new music sooner rather than later. “It’s just more interesting for us and the fans,” Navarro says.

blistering set at an abandoned supermarket at three in the morning. It was obvious that as a live act, the band wasn’t far removed from the height of its powers back in the late 1980s. “I remember that show well,” guitarist Dave Navarro tells Atlantic City Weekly. “We were playing the Playboy party and people were really into it. We just went out and had a great time together. It was like we had been playing together every night for years. We were locked in.” It was obvious that Jane’s Addiction still had something to offer, at least as a touring act. “We knew that,” Navarro says while calling recently from his Los Angeles home. “There’s been a lot of ups and downs in life, but we’ve been able to go back to this band a few times.” However, the group has rarely found itself in the studio. Jane’s Addiction, which will perform Friday, Oct. 21, at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, is touring behind only its fourth album in its long history. The Great Escape Artist, which dropped Tuesday (Oct. 18), combines the power of early Jane’s Addiction with



5 Questions With ... Joe Walsh Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Joe Walsh returns to the Borgata Saturday night, Oct. 22, for a twin billing with another guitar legend, B.B. King. By Ray Schweibert

aving thrived on all of rock’s most meaningful fronts — songwriter, solo artist, studio musician, power-trio front man and lead guitarist for a hall-of-fame band — Joe Walsh is about as seriously successful a career musician as there is out there. But Walsh loves to laugh at life, too, as best noted by one of the biggest hits in his storied career, 1978’s “life’s Been good” — a satire of the excesses and pitfalls the touring rock star often encounters, and something the now healthy Walsh can say he survived. Walsh’s lighthearted nature revealed itself in a recent phone conversation with AC Weekly, particularly regarding the early stages of his musical odyssey. “i played trombone and clarinet for a while, then i played oboe in high school,” says Walsh. “then i discovered i wasn’t going to get any girls playing oboe, so i decided that maybe i should play guitar. and i didn’t really get any girls playing guitar either, but i had a lot more fun.” a 1998 rock ‘n’ roll hall of fame inductee with the eagles, Walsh is currently on tour with his solo band that stops at the Borgata event Center on Saturday, oct. 22. the 63-year-old has been touring with the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band, but in atlantic City, Walsh will do a gig with longtime friend and past collaborator B.B. King, one of the most influential blues guitarists in history. Walsh took some time to talk with Atlantic City Weekly before an oct. 18 gig at the durham Performing arts Center near duke University. here are exceprts — read full interview online at

appeal of the vinyl was the cover — the cover was an art form, and you could sit down and listen to the album and read all about it on the cover. that doesn’t happen any more because, for one, [Cds are] too little to read.

on this tour. We played four shows in five nights and they’ve all been great. Kenny’s got an album out [entitled How I Go] and he’s a great young guitar player. he’s the next generation coming up. i’ve known B.B. most of my life and have played on a few of his records [among them 1970’s Indianola Mississippi Seeds], but this [Borgata] gig is a package that i think the casino put together and i’m not entirely sure how it’s set up yet. i haven’t seen B.B. in a long time and, if we can possibly do it, it would be great to play [on stage] together. But for the rest of my tour, Kenny Wayne is out with me.

You’re next gig is adjacent to a college campus — how is your music and the classic hits the Eagles created being received by the younger generations? i find that there’s a new generation of people coming to see either the eagles or myself for the first time, a lot of them. and those are the people who grew up on [hearing] their parents playing our music. and so they know about us that way. the other thing is that How did it work out that you’re touring around there’s kind of a resurgence to the music of with Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s band but you’ll be our era that’s been going on for a while now. doing the show in Atlantic City with B.B. King? i don’t hear a lot out there today that’s going i’ve known Kenny for years and years, to be around in 30 years. But for some reason and his band has been opening for mine our music has held up and stands the test of

I saw the Eagles’ 2008 show in Atlantic City and it was amazing. Venue staff told me that the Eagles spent hours setting things up just right and doing sound checks. Have you personally always been a perfectionist when it comes to your music? i think all of us in the eagles are perfectionists and not necessarily by choice. that’s time.

CRDA’s New Boss Takes the Reigns John Palmieri has 30 years of experience in urban redevelopment, but redeveloping Atlantic City may be the most unique experience yet.

o c t o b e r 2 0 , 2 0 1 1 • A T L A N T I C C I T Y W EE K L Y


ohn Palmieri, the new head of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, comes to Atlantic City like no other executive director of the authority ever has. Palmieri, who was head of the Boston Redevelopment Authority from 2007 up until earlier this year, and has headed redevelopment and economic development in other cities such as Charlotte, North Carolina; Providence, Rhode Island; and Hartford, Connecticut, certainly has the qualifications and background for the job. But so have other CRDA directors. What’s different is the CRDA he’ll be heading. Never in the authority’s history has the role of the CRDA been so large. An agency created to build housing in Atlantic City and spur economic development projects around the state is now charged with developing Atlantic City like never before. CRDA’s power now extends to running the city’s new tourism district, policing and cleaning the city, attracting new investment and major involvement with promoting and enhancing the city as a resort. Palmieri, who grew up in Hoboken, N.J., tells Atlantic City Weekly that returning to New Jersey, where he still has family, was a big reason he wanted to take the job. But more important was the opportunity the CRDA has to really change in the city. “When I heard about the initiatives and the legislation that was being passed, I knew that the CRDA would have a chance to play a very dynamic role in the city,” he says. “We would have the authority to really affect change. And hearing Governor [Chris] Christie and his commitment to revitalizing the city and the way so many are unified towards taking action, it was just a very exciting opportunity.” And a slightly different one than he’s used to. Boston, Charlotte, Providence and Hartford are all cities that needed focus on housing, industry and economic development. Atlantic City, however, is a resort with a single dominant industry, the casino industry, surrounded by mainland communities that house most of the city’s workers. It’s also a beach resort surrounded by other beach resorts. Furthermore, this new direction comes as the city faces serious problems with expanding casino competition around it, and of course, during hard economic times.

‘There’s a core section of city life that has a lot in common with tourism. We are working to make this a safer city, a cleaner city and a better place to live and visit.’

“I do realize that Atlantic City is a unique area,” Palmieri says. “In Boston, for example there were five distinct areas of redevelopment we focused on. In Atlantic City, the casino industry is dominant and I think I’ve been told the casinos are 70 percent of the rateables in the city. But there are still so many other areas that we can focus on,” he adds. “From providing family attractions to say working with the [AtlantiCare] and the FAA Tech center to bring in more jobs. We want to try and create a broader base of opportunities and job creation in the city. The casino industry will always be the major employers, but there are more areas that we can build. “And the city is very urban,” Palmieri says. “There’s a core section of city life that has a lot in common with tourism. We are working to make this a safer city, a cleaner city and a better place to live and visit.” Towards that end, there are several initiatives already underway in the city. Plans to increase police presence, cleanliness, demolish older structures and improvements to the Boardwalk are already happening. “I know so many things are already underway,” he says. “And sometimes a guy in my

position gets a lot of kind words for things that were started before I got here. So you just humbly say ‘Thanks,’ but then you build off of it. Take the Revel project. That’s already being done, but it will mean so much to that side of the Boardwalk and that area of town. It’s a great opportunity and we need to build off of the project and provide the incentive and infrastructure for that area to develop.” But while the CRDA needs to focus on tourism and growing the city into a destination resort, it also won’t forget its original mission, according to Palmieri. “When you look at the original mission statements of CRDA, it is about housing and creating a better quality of life for residents. And that’s still with us and still very much part of the mission,” he says. “But enhanced tourism also plays into that. We’re looking for development that’s feasible and brings employers and jobs to town. “And we do have to look at the [residential] business districts and attaching outward from the outlet stores on throughout the city. ... And there are gaps in the city. You can see them driving around. Areas of blight that we want to fill in by working with pub-

lic and private partners to encourage housing and business. And that fits in with both sides of things, for residents and tourists. So much of what we’re already doing is simply trying to provide a cleaner, safer, more attractive city.” Still, ideas for revitalizing the city have to be assessed and the state authority needs to focus on what’s not only practical, but economically feasible, he says. The CRDA is already working on a redevelopment master plan for the tourism district. “The master plan, which we should have by February, is a major component,” says Palmieri. “Through it we can identify the full gamut of initiatives we want to take on and where we want to be. Something like the arts district proposal, for instance, is still there and being studied, but it’s through the master plan that it can be honed and refined. “Most cities see this,” he says. “When an area or neighborhood revitalizes, it happens organically and if artists move to an area than an arts district emerges. It’s our job to facilitate that growth.” The arts district may be a perfect example of the challenge before the authority. Plans and studies for an authority project to create an arts district centered on Mississippi Avenue were announced last year. This spring, hearings and public meetings were held. While widely supported, it became clear that such a project would be huge, taking years, possibly even decades to really come to fruition. Meanwhile, the city can identify several other areas that need improvement as well, from becoming a better convention destination to evolving into a more family friendly resort. Along with its new power, the authority also has to deal with a huge amount of expectations and plans. Perhaps the biggest role of CRDA’s new director will be keeping things in perspective and focused on the practical. “You do have to be careful that you don’t spread yourself too thin,” Palmieri says. “I agree that the city can be a better convention city. And I’m excited by the Atlantic City Alliance [a new non-profit group charged with marketing and promoting the city] and even something like the arts district. But at the same time you have to focus on what is practical. Much of this will be market driven. But we also want to make better neighborhoods and also make this city a destination. I think we can do that if we stay on a plan.” n

An Alliance of One – So Far

Liza Cartmell, the recently announced CEO of the newly created non-profit Atlantic City Alliance, hopes to have a new marketing plan for Atlantic City in place early next year. By Jeff Schwachter

Not may people had heard of the ACA until it was announced that you were the CEO. Was it a state initiative to create this non-profit entity and when did it begin? Basically what happened was, in February 2011, the statute was passed, S-11, which created the opportunity for most of the responsibilities, or the creation of the [tourism] district [in Atlantic City], and then the housing of the district under the CRDA. But what probably Like us:

How many are employed by the ACA? One. Oh. Small staff! Very small staff, yes. But obviously the design is to grow that. But selectively. Because, you know, we have $30 million to spend and we don’t want to spend too much of it in the management of the promotional and marketing activities. We basically want the money to go into touching consumers. And we’re still in the process of figuring out exactly what that’s going to look like. We’re still finalizing the partnership represented between ourselves and the CRDA and some of that just had to

So just to be clear, the final three agencies you select to rebrand Atlantic City will be selected by January? Roughly, yeah. We hope to have them by mid-January so that we can really take their preliminary branding work and then create a really much more robust media plan. We really don’t know how much should be TV, how much should be print, how much would be viral, you know. All of those would be part of their recommendations. And my hope and aspiration would be to be able to go live in March. And they’re all telling me, ‘No you should really take a year for branding.’ We don’t have a year to just do branding. But it’s important to do it right so we’re trying not to run through it. It will be a very expensive process, but for the first year, to get the whole brand right, it’s the right way to do it.

Liza Cartmell, CEO of the Atlantic City Alliance wait because John [Palmieri] is now on board and I’m newly on board so we’re just trying to, you know, finalize the arrangement in terms of responsibility sharing very soon. Are you excited about this task at hand? Yeah, I am excited about it because you don’t really get an opportunity to make a difference very often. I’ve worked in a corporate environment almost all my life, but I was fortunate enough to be involved in something a little bit similar. For years I was at the Please Don’t Touch Museum board, in Philadelphia, and I spent a huge amount of time really helping them relocate from their 21st Street location into Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park. And it took it from a 40,000 sq.-ft. building with 13,000 sq.-ft. of exhibit space to 150,000-plus sq.-ft., which is really the right sizing for the Philadelphia market, but it was also relocating into a historically significant building that gets renovated, and that is in an underprivileged neighborhood that is sort of outside the UPenn umbrella and really hasn’t had the

benefit of significant redevelopment opportunities. In some ways this [new task] is a bigger opportunity to make a positive impact. It affects New Jersey broadly but really, specifically, it really impacts the entire geographic area. Have you had a chance yet to talk to Mr. Palmieri much in terms of broad ideas, working together, etc.? No, no. Not yet. You’re still formulating — Yeah, exactly. Although I was just texting him a few minutes ago asking to get some time on his calendar for us to have more of this dialogue. No, we’ve got to get the agreement in place and, honestly, I’m already off and running on the rebranding. So most of the last two weeks I have [been putting certain items] in place. I hired a consultant, since I’m only a shop of one, who will help me go through the process of identifying, selecting [and] managing the agency that will actually do the development of the branding work and the creative content. So, we’re already off and running.

So, it’s a delicate balance between getting it done as quickly as possible, but also getting it done the right way. Right, it doesn’t do us any good if it’s not what we need. But on the other hand, if it comes in next October, November, December, it’s a little bit too late. Do you think in terms of the total package that you’re marketing to potential visitors, that Ocean City and Cape May and other regional attractions are things that could be packaged together? Oh, absolutely. I mean, if you’re in Philadelphia they promote Lancaster, they’ll promote Harrisburg, and they’ll promote Hershey Park. There’s always a geographic [emphasis]. The initial focus, of course, is just emphasizing Atlantic City and its benefits and its activities, but, you know, people who come for several days, they’re always looking for diverse activities and I think in order to be able to market yourself, what you should be giving is a wide array of options.


Can you identify any things that have been done in the past that you want to stay away from in terms of marketing Atlantic City? No, I think the philosophy, though, needs to be about letting people find activities that they can

What is the widespread perception? The perception is that it’s all about gaming [in Atlantic City]. And clearly it’s much more than that so that’s the opportunity, to make sure that doesn’t happen.

We’ve had initial meetings with our consultant and he’s going to help us make our list of agencies that we’re going to go out and solicit within a time frame. Hopefully, we’ll have that agency selected by the end of January [2012].

Thank you for your time Liza. The announcement came last week that you were the CEO of the newly created Atlantic City Alliance, but you actually started the job before that, on Sept. 26. How long were you interviewing or involved? I was first contacted in May about it and it was something I wasn’t intending to do, going back to work this quickly. I had intended to take a lot more time because I have elderly parents. My mother was in the hospital for the entire month of July and had had heart surgery so I had a lot going on and it just didn’t feel like the right time for me, but they just kept talking and it was just something that was really interesting, you know? So I kept talking and my mother is doing better.

didn’t get as much attention at the time was the design to have another not-for-profit entity [which would be a] private entity that would partner with the CRDA in terms of really taking over primary responsibility for the rebranding and marketing of Atlantic City broadly. And the contemplation is that we’re really going to partner and be locked at the hip, if you will, for moving forward as they tackle some of the more significant infrastructure development. You know, clean and safe initiatives, things that are really traditionally in the government purview that in the private purview would be the marketing piece of it. At the time that that was put in place, the search process was kicked off more in the March time frame to find someone that could lead that effort. But at the same time the casinos were very proactive with knowing that they had to accomplish certain things to really lay the foundation for what was going to need to be accomplished underneath the legislation, and that included a lot of the foundational work in terms of really looking at the competitive market place, looking at what the needs were in Atlantic City in terms of how we were going to develop more as a broad tourism marketplace rather than just a gaming marketplace — which has been going on for many years now, in terms of expanding the capabilities of the marketplace. And the recognition really isn’t out there generally in the market place.

ast week’s announcement that former Aramark executive Liza Cartmell had been named the CEO of a new non-profit marketing entity in Atlantic City, the Atlantic City Alliance (ACA), came a few weeks after the announcement of new Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) head John Palmieri. Both are from out of town, but have roots and live in New Jersey. Unlike Palmieri, who is in charge of heading an authority that has existed for decades and has many employees, Cartmell has taken the reigns of a new non-profit 501 (c) (4) agency that currently has no employees. The aim of the ACA, which is chaired by Don Marrandino, the eastern division president of Caesars Entertainment, is to rebrand Atlantic City and develop a marketing strategy to boost tourism in the resort. Cartmell took time out of her busy schedule on Monday, Oct. 17, for a half-hour interview with Atlantic City Weekly. The interview was conducted on a beautiful fall afternoon in a conference room at Caesars Entertainment’s Human Relations building on Pacific Avenue, where Cartmell is stationed.

FEATURE engage in at its simplest level, [and] encourage an environment where there’s more of an opportunity to let people watch people. Because that’s what they really like to do. In some ways, I think that’s something that could be accomplished pretty cost effectively and in a very friendly way that encourages just a lot more positive energy. Whenever you’re walking down South Street in Philadelphia, it’s partially just about people watching. So you need to provide places where people will feel comfortable, where there’s a lot of [foot] traffic, where they’re drawn there because there’s some sort of show or activity or entertainment or just little things that you can do.

some of North Philadelphia, you know, you’ve got the Penn campus and you’ve got Northern Liberties and there’s certainly that opportunity here to create stronger neighborhoods with a stronger identity because those are the fun things that people like to go experience. Would those be things that the CRDA would have to determine? Yeah. That will have to be part of the [CRDA tourism district] master plan. That’s clearly not under my purview. But I think once you start to think through how do you create those kind of people-watching and those kind of unique destination characteristics, it is about creating individuality in a location that

there is to do and the appearance and the safety are better than their expectations before they got here. And if you compare it to the people that have not been here, the perception of the cleanliness and the level of crime is way higher than the people who have been here. So clearly from a marketing perspective, it’s about driving people in for visitation and experimentation because the research shows that they’ll be in a more favorable disposition even as it is today, if they just come.

We’ve had discussions about whether or not we even want to use a New York agency. I mean, that’s where the world tends to go for agency representation, but we’ve been talking about making sure we get an agency outside of New York because there’s definitely a market for it in the Philadelphia area. One of the elements that we need to spend time on is re-looking at all of the rebranding and commercials and marketing that was going on before, and that’s sort of your homework — you have to know what was going on before you and whether it has worked or not worked. This time next year, what do you hope to have accomplished? photo by craig billow

And lots of options. And lots of variety just scattered, you know, all over the place. Do you think not having a big university or several of them, like Philadelphia or Boston, dampers the attempt to have more cultural — I don’t think so because honestly, [college] kids can’t afford to spend much money. Based on the statistical work that’s been done, there aren’t a lot of 20-somethings or late teens that haven’t found their way here [already]. That is a marketplace that has been very well represented here. Very well represented. I’m sure you’re familiar with the fact that Atlantic City was an entertainment hub from the 1870s to the 1960s, really, and what a rich history the resort has. Yes. This has been a destination for decades. And for me the question is how do you get back to an environment that has [that going for it]. I always think it’s very productive if you get entertainment zones and you have very different characteristics around them. You know, in Philadelphia, you’ve got Italians in South Philadelphia,


Like us:

[visitors] can’t go get somewhere else. It’s special here. You know, I’ll tell you, when we go to New York, we will always be stopping at the bakery, you know, for Carlos Bakery, because we love the Cake Boss [TV show] and you know, that’s how you create a destination. And there are 200 people in line [at the bakery]. I mean, it’s become a phenomenon. And you can do that with discrete locations. You know, if you do something really well and you do it in a really unique, special way, you can create destinations throughout the entire location. I heard a few people over the weekend talking about the ACA, the announcement of your position, and some of them were saying they were afraid, because over the years there have been a lot of attempts to rebrand A.C. ‘Maybe they’ll just reshoot an old visit AC kind of commercial, just with new actors, some fear. Others are afraid that instead of rebranding A.C. in a modern and attractive way, there will be simply a repeat of the sins of the past, just reshooting old commercials and have them air in the New York market for a few weeks and then that’s it.

A meaningful increase in visitation. Is the year-round aspect of A.C.’s tourism an important one to focus on? Oh, it’s absolutely important. I mean the casinos and the facilities locally do pretty well in the summer. Not as well as they’d like even in the mid week in the summer, so maybe that would be the more easy time slot to try and fill up. There’s already a propensity that [people] want to come here because the weather is better [in the summer]. In the off-season, there is an absolute need to drive in visitation. Christmas week, [we’re] probably not going to do it no matter what, but having said that, being able to fill more up at the end of January, February, March, when there’s usually a lot of business travel, that would be a great opportunity. There are people on the mainland that have never been or hardly go to Atlantic City. Yes, well, the interesting things that the research has indicated, that the casinos did already, is that if you have been to A.C. you tend to be more surprised by everything

Will the ACA’s focus be mainly on the tourism district? No, not exclusively. I mean, it is because that’s the bulk of where your activities are but as I mentioned, I’m not really tasked with the development form. You know, I’ll play a role and try to provide guidance and advisory if I’m asked, or even if I’m not asked [laughter] and try and get in there and help. But no, my primary concern will just be to get people to come. And if they come and they do something outside the footprint of the district, that’s fine too because it rises all boats. One of the challenges here is inconsistent visitation. It’s harder to manage to provide a great experience. In my experience at Aramark, I was in a very seasonal business and it’s very hard to deliver a consistent level of high quality service when you have seasonal staffing — a lot of turnover, a lot of retaining. It’s just really hard to execute consistently when you have highly seasonal operations or when you have big ups and big downs like we have currently. You’re much better off if you can staff consistently with people who can train consistently. If you think about it in a baseball park, we would have a 10-day homestand, and by the 10th day, [the players] were ready to drop, and then they went away for 10 days. And then you’d bring your whole staff back, and then it’d be like they’d never been trained. Day five they’re cooking, day 10 they’re dead. Exhausted. You know, so if you can have something where people have reasonable shifts and consistent days of the week and have people here on a continuous flow, everybody can perform better. It’s just easier. You had said that every day should be New Year’s Eve in Atlantic City. What exactly do you mean by that? What I mean by that is people that are coming here looking to have an enjoyable, special experience and they want to be treated by the people that were serving them as if they’re having a special experience. And that’s what I mean by New Year’s Eve. You want to be exclusively welcomed. You want to feel like everyone’s thrilled to serve you and that they’ll go the extra mile. And that just makes your

whole experience more special and then you’ll want to come back. In April the CRDA held a public forum held at Dante Hall discussing a proposed arts district in Atlantic City. At least two gentlemen from the CRDA were spearheading the effort to study and possibly develop the district on Mississippi Avenue. Stockton College, which worked out a deal at that time to run Dante Hall, seemed in favor of the district and local artists, gallery owners and arts and cultural facilities from all over the region were meeting with the CRDA and having discussions. There is a perception that Atlantic City has no artists, has no culture, has no soul. However, dozens of artists attended that meeting in April and have been wondering if the proposed arts district is dead, as there has been no further public discussion on the topic. There are a lot of artists and art lovers in our area; some are kind of hidden, but they don’t really have a South Street or a Greenwich Village or a retail presence, or even a Bourbon Street where they can create, have studio space, live, work, walk, get coffee, hear live music in clubs, and shop around. Do you think an arts district would help the resort as a tourist destination and change the perception about the city? I think that’s a great example of something that could be a little jewel to bring people in. Again, not my purview, but CRDA’s purview in terms of the master plan, but those are things to me that create uniqueness and need to be built into the city’s landscape. How soon and how often do you think you’ll be working with the casino representatives, the CRDA, the ACCVA, and other city and state entities? Every week. I mean, I’m here. I have lunch with Jeff [Vasser] tomorrow and will hopefully be meeting with John [Palmieri] tomorrow and I just met with all my board today. So, we’re in constant dialogue. And the board is made up of all casino CEOs. Right, it’s the casino CEOs. Not all of them, yet, but, let’s wait until Revel gets opened. Speaking of Revel, do you think it will be a game-changer in Atlantic City? Oh yeah. I think it will be a wonderful addition. But I think, if you look historically, unlike most of the other casinos it will celebrate what Atlantic City has to offer in terms of its natural resources, rather than blocking them off, which is an unfortunate thing that happened. I mean, when you come to Las Vegas you build what you have, I mean it’s a desert, but here you have dunes and beaches and … it’s one of those long-term things that we need to make sure that the atmosphere here is truly inclusive of all that is around us. n

‘Footloose’ Redux A head-to-head comparison of the 1984 original and the 2011 remake By Lori Hoffman


ootloose” the song is still a toe-tapping gem and i guess that is one reason that someone felt it was necessary to remake Footloose the movie, a perfectly fine and entertaining semi-classic from 1984. Another reason to create a remake is that the music has remained in the public ear thanks to the Broadway show that was created from the original film in 1998, and has been around the country in touring companies and the like ever since. it played at least twice at an Atlantic City casino venue, most recently at the tropicana in october 2009. My main beef with remakes is that if they were good enough the first time around, why do it again, unless you have a plan that improves on the original. And, while the 2011 version of the film starring newcomer Kenny Wormald as Ren McCormick and Julianne hough as Ariel Moore doesn’t suck, it isn’t as good as the original. here then is my blow-by-blow comparison of the two films.

The Updated Plot

here is where i thought the new movie did a nice job. While the idea that a town bans public dancing by teenagers is even more ridiculous in 2011 than it was in 1984, you can’t get around that necessary evil of including it as the central theme. however, the new film does a nice job of making the movie feel modern, in particular by having African Americans in the cast. i also thought it added some emotional weight with Ren’s mom dying of cancer right before he moves to the sticks, this time from Boston rather than Chicago. Fitting in it is really tough when you feel so alone and isolated.

Footloose 2011 (as Rev. shaw) is one of my favorite actors, but he is just too devilish to play a preacher who thinks rock ‘n’ roll and dancing are evil. Besides he once played Jerry lee lewis and it was hard not to forget that. John lithgow was more convincing and brought more compassion and weight to the role. in addition, Dianne Wiest as Mrs. shaw blows Andie MacDowell away. then we have Willard (Miles teller). teller does a fine job but it is hard not to feel sad remembering how adorable Chris Penn was in the 1984 version. his death at age 50 in 2006 makes this remake a bit of an insult to his memory. he nailed the role and that’s what we should remember.
