The Stage Welcomes R&B Breakout Artist J.R. Castro
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Jan. 8, 2016

The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Jan. 8, 2016 – Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico’s Best Bet, welcomes rising R&B star J.R. Castro to The Stage on Saturday, Jan. 16. Doors open at 9 p.m.

Despite growing up in a rough neighborhood in North Las Vegas, J.R. Castro realized his passion for music early in life. Inspired by acts like Brian McKnight, Boys II Men and Usher, he developed a silky R&B style and honed his soulful falsetto vocals. After a short stint as part of an R&B trio called I-15, Castro’s big break came in 2014 when a chance meeting with legendary producer Timbaland shifted his career into high gear. Castro teamed up with Timbaland and other high-profile collaborators including DJ Mustard, DJ Camper and Polow the Don to create his first solo venture, “The Mixtape EP.” Blending an assortment of smooth, sensual R&B tracks with fun, street vibe-influenced hip-hop, Castro has earned his reputation as R&B’s next breakout star. His first single, “Get Home (Get Right),” is currently ranked at No. 14 on Billboard’s Rhythmic Top 40 Chart and continues to climb each week. 

Cover for J.R. Castro’s performance at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino is $5 for women and $10 for men. Guests who attend Jermaine Dupri’s performance at The Stage on Jan. 15 can show their tickets on Jan. 16 to receive complimentary entry. Private VIP sections with bottle service are available.

J.R. Castro’s performance at The Stage is presented in partnership with Wild 106.7. Doors open at 9 p.m. Guests must be 21 years old or older to attend. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
