GRANT, OK – Choctaw Casino & Resort – Grant has opened its newly remodeled entertainment venue: Stage 271, formerly known as the Grant Event Center. Choctaw Casino & Resort – Grant is located on US-Highway 271, making Stage 271 the ideal name for the renovated entertainment space.
“The venue has undergone a remarkable transformation into a spacious entertainment destination for live entertainment,” said Ken Eisele, Director of Marketing at Choctaw Casino & Resort – Grant. “We wanted a name that could be recognizable and connect us with the local community. It’s been over two years since the space has been used and we can’t wait to bring back live entertainment.”
The new venue is approximately 11,000 sq. ft. facility and can accommodate 1,200 people. Upgrades to Stage 271 include a new state-of-the-art entertainment system, a large projection screen for easy viewing, concessions and restrooms. To kick off the new music venue, Choctaw Casino & Resort – Grant is welcoming for the first time Eli Young Band (EYB) as they will perform live at Stage 271 on Friday, July 2.
EYB has always been unique in modern country music as a true band of brothers who cling fast to their Texas roots and has maintained an impressive trajectory with singles earning Billboard’s No. 1 Country Song of the Year and ACM Awards Song of the Year. They have previously earned multiple nominations from GRAMMY, CMA, CMT, ACA and Teen Choice Awards.
