Donovan "Sunshine Superman: 50th Anniversary Tour"
Wednesday, September 14, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
tickets

Donovan, ‘60s legend, icon, poet and one of the world’s most enduring singer songwriters, brings hes SUNSHINE SUPERMAN FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY TOUR, to the Hall!

“I am delighted to be going on tour throughout North America, to thank all who have followed my work from the beginning—and all who have just discovered me now,” Donovan says.

Audiences will be treated to Donovan’s history of hits include “Sunshine Superman,” “Mellow Yellow,” “The Hurdy Gurdy Man,” “Jenifer Juniper” as well as his legendary storytelling and other cult classic songs.

This year, 2016, celebrates the 50th anniversary of Donovan’s hit single SUNSHINE SUPERMAN when it reached #1 on The Billboard Charts. The album of the same name is considered a classic masterpiece, described during Donovan’s induction into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012: “Donovan single-handedly initiated the Psychedelic Revolution with Sunshine Superman.”

Donovan’s cross-country tour will launch with a benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation on Tuesday, August 30, in the East Hamptons, at Guild Hall. Followed by a visit to City Hall Los Angeles on Sept 2nd where Councilmember Paul Koretz will present Donovan with a plaque proclaiming Sept 03 will forever be known as DONOVAN DAY, The Sunshine Superman. Donovan returns to New York City on September 15 for his concert at Carnegie Hall (also a 50 year anniversary since his first performance at this iconic theatre).

Born in Glasgow in 1946, Donovan developed a name for himself by creating an eclectic and style all his own that merged jazz, pop, world music, and psychedelic music together. The first artists signed to CBS/Epic Records by Clive Davis, the musician quickly gained international acclaim. At the age of 18, his first hit, “Catch the Wind,” earned the prestigious Ivor Novello Award. In 1966, Donovan breached the Billboard Hot 100 with “Sunshine Superman” -- which was a number one hit single, followed later by “Mellow Yellow,” and, in 1968, “The Hurdy Gurdy Man.” In his career, Donovan had 16 singles make it on to Billboard. A friend to many renowned musical acts, he taught John Lennon how to fingerpick a guitar. After a nearly two-decade hiatus, he returned to the scene in 1996 with the album “Sutras,” and in 2004 he released “Beat Cafe.” Throughout his career, Donovan has received numerous accolades, most notably his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014.

tickets

Celebrate 50 years with Peter and Paul as they reminisce on their time as part of America's favorite folk group!

No American folk group lasted longer or amassed a more loyal following than Peter, Paul and Mary; indeed, few groups of any genre logged more years or miles in direct, yearly touring; spreading the message and engaging the next generations. During its legendary career, the trio won five Grammy’s, produced 13 Top 40 hits, of which 6 ascended into the Top 10 – as well as eight gold and five platinum albums. That PP&M achieved such a rarefied level of commercial success without compromise, while continuing a centuries-old tradition of people raising their voices in song for the sake of freedom, is simply further evidence of their extraordinarily successful career—as much a mission accomplished as a musical career.

Mary Travers passed away in September 2009 and it was a loss to her family, friends and the nation. Mary was a passionate singer of songs, songs that have enlightened us and moved us to action as citizens of America and the world. Her life and legacy remain a great American treasure.

Donovan "Sunshine Superman: 50th Anniversary Tour"
Sunday, September 11, 2016 7:30 pm
tickets

Donovan, music legend and one of the world’s most consummate solo performers, makes a stop at SOPAC on the 50th Anniversary Tour of Sunshine Superman. Donovan’s hit single “Sunshine Superman” reached #1 on The Billboard Charts in 1966 and his album of the same name is considered a classic masterpiece. The album was described during Donovan’s 2012 induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as “single-handedly initiating the Psychedelic revolution.” Sunshine Superman introduced “flower power” and the first fusions of Folk, Classical, Jazz, Indian, Celtic, Arabic, and Caribbean to the world. Donovan and his album also introduced Eastern philosophies and meditation to the Western world.
At this intimate acoustic concert, audiences will be treated to Donovan’s history of hits such as “Sunshine Superman,” “Mellow Yellow,” “The Hurdy Gurdy Man,” “Jenifer Juniper” as well as other cult classic songs and his fabulous storytelling.
Born in Glasgow in 1946, Donovan developed a name for himself by creating an eclectic and style all his own. As influential and successful as Sunshine Superman was, Donovan had already scored four Top Twenty hit singles, E.P.’s and two albums prior to its release. At the age of 18, his first hit, “Catch the Wind,” earned the prestigious Ivor Novello Award. Throughout his career, Donovan had 16 singles make it on to the Billboard Charts.
Sunshine Superman was created when Donovan was just 19 years of age, a year before he befriended The Beatles, influencing their album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It is now part of music history that Donovan became a tutor to The Beatles on their famous trip to India, where he taught John, Paul and George the finger style guitar technique and his unique chord patterns that would create many of the best songs and styles of The White Album.
With more than 25 albums in his name, it cannot be overstated that Donovan has displayed the widest variety of songwriting skill, surpassing any singer-songwriter one can name today. The sheer range of his accomplishment is Bardic, empowering our human journey through all stages of life. Throughout his career, Donovan has received numerous accolades, most notably his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014.

Dee Dee Bridgewater
Friday, September 30, 2016 8 pm
tickets

Few entertainers have ever commanded such depth of artistry in every medium. Fewer still have been rewarded with Broadway’s coveted Tony Award (Best Featured Actress in a Musical for The Wiz), nominated for the London theater’s West End equivalent, the Laurence Olivier Award (Best Actress in a Musical for Lady Day), won three Grammy Awards (Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2011 for Eleanora Fagan: To Billie with Love from Dee Dee Bridgewater, Best Jazz Vocal Performance and Best Arrangement Accompanying a Vocal in 1998 for “Cottontail” arranged by Slide Hampton, on Dear Ella), and France’s top honor, Victoire de la Musique (Best Jazz Vocal Album in 1998).
Dee Dee captured the hearts of audiences worldwide in The Wiz with her signature song, “If You Believe.” According to Nick Ashford of Ashford and Simpson, Dee Dee’s rendition “personified a generation and gave us all hope.”
As a sparkling ambassador for Jazz, she bathed in its music before she could walk. Her mother played the greatest albums of Ella Fitzgerald, whose artistry provided an inspiration for Dee Dee throughout her career. Her father was a trumpeter who taught music to Booker Little, Charles Lloyd and George Coleman, among others. It is the kind of background that leaves its mark on an adolescent, especially one who appeared solo and with a trio as soon as she was able. Dee Dee’s other vocation that of globetrotter, reared its head when she toured the Soviet Union in 1969 with the University of Illinois Big Band. A year later, she followed her then husband, Cecil Bridgewater, to New York City.
Dee Dee made her phenomenal New York City debut in 1970 as the lead vocalist for the band led by Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, one of the premier Jazz orchestras of the time. These New York City years marked an early career in concerts and on recordings with such giants as Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Max Roach and Roland Kirk, and rich experiences with Norman Connors, Stanley Clarke and Frank Foster’s Loud Minority.
Named Ambassador to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization in 1999, Dee Dee joined the battle against world hunger. Appealing for international solidarity to finance global grass-roots projects, the FAO’s Ambassadors aid in developing self-reliance in long-term conservation and management of sustainable agriculture, rural development and the conservation and management of natural resources.
Taking over the reigns of “JazzSet” from the illustrious Branford Marsalis, Dee Dee brought her message to listeners. NPR’s “JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater” is the Jazz lover’s ears and eyes on the world of live music. It presents today’s best Jazz artists in performance on stages around the world, taking listeners to Puerto Rico and Cuba, as well as Marciac in the French countryside and across the North American continent from Montreal to Monterey.

The miasma of faded glamour and nostalgic pop-noir of her critically lauded debut album, Neptune City (2007), secured her place in Rolling Stone’s “Top 10 Artists to Watch,” where they praised her “voice full of longing and Loretta Lynn elegance.” Atkins has been lauded as having a “penchant for creating enticingly mysterious pop-rock” (USA Today) and “a voice that could melt the heart of a devil,” with a “sense of humor dryer than a drought” (NPR).

Wednesday, August 17, 2016 @ 7pm
tickets

An expatriate New Yorker now living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Richard Shindell is a meticulous craftsman of song whose studio albums and two live recordings have been revered by critics and fans alike. Innovative, original, and occasionally spiritual, Shindell’s songs weave tales that interchangeably champion the downtrodden, exalt the disaffected, or wax empathetic to those lost to society’s fringes. Shindell’s songwriting is truly eclectic, ranging from light-hearted ballads and adulterous love songs to dirges and diatribes that skillfully skewer politics, prejudice, war, and religion. He has the ability to morph into the soul of the many and varied personalities he casts as narrators in certain songs.

Reviewers and fans from around the world agree that Smither is a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist and, as he puts it, a “one-man band to the bone.” Chris melds the guitar styles of his two major influences, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature sound. His music continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets, and humanist philosophers.

Eric Burdon & The Animals + Edgar Winter Band
Thursday, October 6, 2016 @ 8pm
tickets

A powerful evening with two of rock and roll’s finest. Eric Burdon is member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1994, and hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 Greatest Voices of All Time, Burdon’s music has forged new territory while also topping the charts for more than five decades. Highly prolific, Burdon has released nearly 50 records in those 50 years. As front man of the British Invasion band The Animals, Burdon helped shape rock and roll’s DNA, and his imposing yet soulful vocals are the driving force of the iconic favorite “House Of The Rising Sun.” A long string of hits followed, including “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” and the Vietnam-era anthem, “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place.” Pioneering the psychedelic San Francisco sound, Burdon’s classics include “San Franciscan Nights” and “Monterey.” Burdon continued to perform throughout the years with different iterations of The Animals, while also founding and fronting the funk group War, one of the first multiracial bands, and topped the charts again with his groundbreaking hit single, “Spill The Wine.”
Edgar's immediate impact on the record business with his first record, "Entrance", was followed up with two hit albums with his band White Trash, and he topped that success with The Edgar Winter Group, creating the number one hit "Frankenstein" as well as the ever-popular "Free Ride". The album "They Only Come Out At Night" peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts and stayed on the chart for 80 weeks; on it's way to double platinum. Edgar invented the keyboard body strap, an innovation that allows him the freedom to move around the stage during his high-energy multi-instrument performances.

Big Head Blues Club Presents The Songs of Willie Dixon: Big Head Todd and The Monsters with Mud Morganfield and Billy Branch
Thursday, November 17, 2016 @ 8pm
tickets

If you’re a fan of Muddy Waters and Bo Diddley, or even Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Rolling Stones, then you’ve heard the songs of Willie Dixon. This season, Big Head Todd and the Monsters will join forces with two second-generation blues stars, Mud Morganfield and Billy Branch, to pay tribute to one of the pillars of modern blues, and one of the most influential songwriters of early rock and roll. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend, Dixon has been called the “poet laureate of the blues,” having written over 500 songs, including such immortal hits as “You Shook Me”, “You Can’t Judge a Book by the Cover”, “Wang Dang Doodle”, “Spoonful”, “Little Red Rooster,” “I Just Wanna Make Love to You,” “Hoochie Coochie Man,” and “Bring It On Home.” Big Head Todd and the Monsters are best known for their platinum-selling record Sister Sweetly, and from that record the hit song “Bittersweet,” but have also been fans of blues music since their first days together playing music in high school.
In 1997 they recorded a song with John Lee Hooker for their album Beautiful World, but it was in 2011 that the band really delved into the blues with their first Big Head Blues Club project, 100 years of Robert Johnson, which featured guest appearances by BB King, Hubert Sumlin, Charlie Musselwhite, Honeyboy Edwards, and more. Joining the band for this tour will be two great blues singers with royal blood. Mud Morganfield is the eldest son of Muddy Waters and has been taking the world’s blues festivals by storm of late and recently released a Blues Music Award-winning album with Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson. Billy Branch is a three-time Grammy Award nominee and played harmonica in Willie Dixon’s Chicago Blues All-Stars band.

Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center is proud to announce an intimate evening with composer, lead guitarist, and frontman of English rock band The Moody Blues Justin Hayward on Saturday, May 14th at 8pm at the Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center !

Having chalked up nearly fifty years at the top of the music and entertainment industry, Justin Hayward’s voice has endured time and is known all over the world. Hayward’s mastery of songwriting and his vocal prowess have made him and the Moody Blues a defining force in rock music. Over the last forty-five years the band has sold fifty five million albums and received numerous awards. Commercial success has gone hand in hand with critical acclaim, and the Moody Blues are universally known as innovators and trailblazers who have influenced artists in a variety of genres. Born and raised in Swindown, England, Justin’s interest in music started when he was five years old and his grandfather gave him a large collection of 78 rpm recordings. At age 17, he left school and successfully auditioned for British singer and songwriter Marty Wilde. It was a dream come true for Justin, and Marty helped launch Justin’s career as a songwriter.

After a few solo singles, Justin joined the Moody Blues in 1966. He hit his stride immediately with the single ‘Fly Me High’ and followed it up with hit songs like ‘Nights in White Satin’ and ‘Tuesday Afternoon. There was no shortage of hits for Justin; he went on to create songs like ‘Question,’ ‘The Voice,’ ‘I Know You’re Out There Somewhere,’ and ‘Your Wildest Dreams.’ Songs like these laid the foundation for the incredible success of both the Moody Blues and Justin’s solo career.

When the Moody Blues took a break in 1975, Justin refused to rest; he continued to crank out solo hits with songs like ‘Forever Autumn’ and albums like ‘Songwriter,’ ‘Moving Mountains,’ and ‘The View From the Hill.’ His latest album ‘Spirits of the Western Sky’ was released in 2013 and shows Justin’s musical versatility; while the rock influence is still present, the album also has some shades of country and bluegrass. Justin is currently on tour and his legendary voice and infamous musical storytelling skills continue to delight both old and new fans alike.

It’s official: Béla Fleck and the Flecktones will reunite for a very special two weeks this June. Groundbreaking banjoist/composer/bandleader Béla Fleck has reconvened the original
‘Béla Fleck & The Flecktones’, the extraordinary initial line-up of his incredible combo.

Far from being a wistful trip back in time, the Grammy Award-winning quartet performs some of the most forward thinking music of their long, storied career. While all manners of genres come into play – from classical and jazz to bluegrass and African music to electric blues and Eastern European folk dances – the result is an impossible to pigeonhole sound all their own, a meeting of musical minds that remains, as ever, utterly indescribable. Simply put, it is The Flecktones, the music made only when these four individuals come together.

Two of pop music’s brightest stars shine on the Kirby Center stage this fall. Gavin DeGraw is known for hits like “I Don’t Want To Be” and “Not Over You,” while Andy Grammer’s “Honey I’m good” peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Gavin DeGraw is a multi-platinum selling singer, performer and songwriter. He first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold over 1 million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track, “Chariot.” Gavin’s self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl,” which Billboard dubbed “a rocking homerun,” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” In 2009, Gavin released Free as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of Gavin’s live favorites. His third studio album, Sweeter, was released in September 2011 and produced the smash single, “Not Over You,” co-written with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder. The track reached #1 on the Hot AC charts, was a top 10 hit on Top 40, and was certified double platinum. In 2013 DeGraw released his fourth studio album, Make A Move, which included the hit song “Best I Ever Had”,” and garnered rave reviews from such publications as Billboard, People and Entertainment Weekly amongst many others. In addition, Gavin was nominated for his first Grammy for “We Both Know,” the song he co-wrote with Colbie Calliat for the 2013 film, “Safe Haven.” Since then he has been consistently touring around the world, including sold out dates with the legendary Billy Joel, while also working on new music expected to be released later this year.

Los Angeles-born, New York-raised singer-songwriter Andy Grammer has gone from hustling street performer to multi-platinum selling recording artist. He has released two albums Andy Grammer and Magazines or Novels producing debut top 10 hit singles including “Fine by Me” and certified triple-platinum No. 1 single “Honey, I’m Good” garnering over 70 million views on the music video, and recipient of a BMI Award for “50 Best Performing Songs of the Year.” Most recently, Grammer released “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah),” which went certified gold and dazzled the Billboard Top 100 charts.

With over 20 years of stand-up comedy experience, Jim Breuer remains one of today’s top entertainers and continues to win over audiences with his off-the-wall humor and lovable personality. Named one of Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time," Breuer is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business, known for his charismatic stage antics, dead-on impressions, and family-friendly stand-up.

Even as a young student at Valley Stream Central High School in Long Island, NY, Breuer knew he wanted to be a stand-up comedian. After spending several years working comedy clubs across the country, Breuer settled in as a regular on the New York comedy club circuit. After being in New York for only seven months, Breuer landed a gig on the nationally syndicated show, “Uptown Comedy Club,” where he spent two seasons. Later he appeared on ABC’s “Home Improvement” starring funny man Tim Allen, before making his big break which came in 1995 when he joined the cast of NBC’s legendary “Saturday Night Live.” During his four years on SNL, Breuer quickly became a fan-favorite for his original character “Goat Boy” and his dead-on impressions of actor Joe Pesci.

Following his success on SNL, Breuer starred alongside Dave Chappelle in the cult favorite film “Half Baked.” He has since appeared in the popular films “Zookeeper,” “Dick,” “Titan A.E.” and “Beer League.” On the small screen, Breuer hosted MTV's popular “Beach House” and VH1’s “Web Junk 20.” His other television appearances include “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and “The Marriage Ref.” Breuer is also a frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show.

In 2008, Breuer set out for his "Breuniversity Tour" with his 85-year-old father and a film crew. The footage that was captured blended together to create “The Jim Breuer Road Journals," which showcased what life is like on the road with a comedian and his father. Videos from that tour also sparked the making of his documentary “More Than Me,” which was shown at the 2009 Montreal Film Festival. In July of 2009, Breuer’s one-hour Comedy Central special “Let's Clear the Air” premiered with hilarious topics that included what "success" really is, his SNL days and life with his elderly parents, his wife and his three daughters. In 2011, Breuer embarked on a national tour with three of the country’s top comedians, Dave Attell, Bill Burr, and Jim Norton, for "The Anti-Social Network" tour. That same year, Breuer's acclaimed autobiography, “I’m Not High: (But I've Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior),” was released on paperback. In the memoir, Breuer sheds light on his early struggles, his rise to fame and the many lessons he’s learned along in an extremely funny, yet personal and touching way that fans have never seen before.

Most recently, Jim released his all new one hour comedy special on EPIX, “Jim Breuer: Comic Frenzy.” The latest special focuses on what Breuer’s life (and all of our lives) truly consist of: dealing with the elderly, becoming our parents’ caretakers, parenting teenagers, and what it takes to be a “marriage warrior.” As an added bonus, Breuer also sheds some light on what it’s like to perform on “heavy metal-themed” cruises. It’s not nearly as glamorous as one might think.

Throughout the years, Breuer has supported various charities through his comedy, including the Chris Farley Foundation, MusiCares, his local police and fire departments and more. Breuer currently resides in New Jersey where he enjoys spending time with his family, playing pick-up games of baseball, softball and wiffle ball and watching the NY Mets.
