Red Hawk Casino Resort is turning up the heat again this weekend with two nights of live music featuring two of the area’s popular cover bands. Gotcha Covered is set to take the stage Friday night followed by the country music of Kirk Basquez and Los Vaqueros on Saturday night.


Gotcha Covered is a band covering a wide variety of hit music. According to their entertainment bio, they play the top hits of every genre from the 70’s to today. Exploding vocals, combined with powerful harmonies, bring every song to life that prides themselves to take the extra effort to make the songs sound like you’re listening to the original artists live. Multiple keyboards and synthesizers make our song collection extraordinarily broader than any other band you’ve heard.

On Saturday, Basquez and the Los Vaqueros take to the same stage for another night of entertainment.


Born and raised in Northern California and coming from a large family of musicians, Basquez always cites that, “country music is his jam,” as he has been on musical journey in which was he influenced to venture on by some of country music’s biggest names. 

That journey started when Matthew was just six years old when his mother bought him his first guitar and the rest is history as followed influences of Hank Williams Jr. Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Jamey Johnson, Sturgill Simpson, John Mayer and many others.


Entertainment starts at 10 p.m. and goes until 2 a.m. each night. There is no cover charge for the events at Red Hawk Casino’s stage bar.
