Enjoy the soulful sounds of Nick and Sophie Tweed-Simmons – the stars of A&E’s hit television series, Gene Simmons Family Jewels – when they’ll be appearing at the River Rock Casino Resort as part of the Grey Cup Festival on November 25 and 26 for two shows each night. Both Nick and Sophie recently performed at the wedding of their parents, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, which was held last month at the Beverly Hills Hotel. This will be their Canadian singing debut.
Nick – who just last year graduated from Pitzer College in Claremont, California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English – has been in and out of bands since high school and has been performing along with his sister at various local clubs in Los Angeles including the Sayers Club on Hollywood Boulevard. Sophie – who also occasionally sings at the W. Hotel Hollywood – says that for her “it’s all in good fun”. She is currently studying Computer Engineering and Religious Studies at Pitzer and so right now, she’s primarily focussed on completing her degree.
During their upcoming two-night engagement at the River Rock Casino Resort, Nick and Sophie will be performing such classic standards as Dean Martin’s “Sway” and Etta James “At Last” along with some blues & jazz selections.
