Doiron was the former general manager of Palm Springs' Ingleside Inn and a former general manager and owner of Triple D Management, which ran hotels throughout Nevada.

The outdoor area will be called The Fleet Easton outdoor show area and will feature the cabaret singer, who has entertained people in Palm Springs since 2008, he said.

The new location will open August 31, 2012.
