tickets

Pushcart puts its trademark spin on a beloved Russian folk tale. Classical music by Prokofiev, storytelling, puppetry and the ageless adventure of growing up comprise this masterpiece.

THE MUSIC: A different instrument and melody (or "leitmotif") represents each character of the play, creating an excellent link to understanding all types of music.

THE STORY: A lively adventure about a spirited young boy who meets the challenge of danger with courage, creativity and leadership.

THE CELEBRATION: The value of love, friendship and caring and the dangers of greed, arrogance and prejudice. There is innocence and wisdom, youth and maturity, conflict resolution, moral development, and beauty in the natural order of life!

Arlo Guthrie "Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour"
Tuesday, May 10, 2016 @ 8 pm
tickets

Arlo Guthrie has been known to generations as a prolific songwriter, social commentator, master storyteller, actor and activist. Born in Coney Island, New York in 1947, Arlo is the eldest son of Marjorie Mazia Guthrie, a professional dancer with the Martha Graham Company and founder of The Committee to Combat Huntington's Disease, and America's most beloved singer/writer/philosopher/artist Woody Guthrie. Arlo has become an iconic figure in folk music in his own right with a distinguished and varied career spanning over fifty years.

"Alice's Restaurant's" hilarious account of actual events that precluded Arlo Guthrie from military service (1966) became a platinum selling record (1967) and full-length motion picture (1969) at the outset of his renowned career. As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the lengthiest hit single in music history, Arlo once again performs it live. Due to its length, Arlo has only added the complete "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" to his touring menu on the 10-year anniversaries.

For the last five decades, Arlo has carried on the Guthrie family legacy of sharing timeless stories and unforgettable classics to audiences far and wide. "The Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour" brings together an ensemble of fine musicians never to grace the stage together at one time. Arlo's deft band includes Terry Hall (drums), Bobby Sweet (guitar, vocals), Darren Todd (bass), and his son, Abe Guthrie (keyboards). Each show is curated with an awe-inspiring light show created specifically for this tour by 44 Designs, Inc., along with previously unseen images from the Guthrie archives. More than 75,000 photos have recently been digitized, and selections will be projected during the evening.

Tommy Emmanuel
Thursday, June 23, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
tickets

Give a listen to "Old Photographs," the closing track on Tommy Emmanuel's It's Never Too Late, and you'll hear the distinctive squeak of finger noise as he runs his hands across the frets of his Maton Signature TE guitar. Many musicians would edit those imperfections out, but to Emmanuel, those imperfections are perfect.

A master technician, Emmanuel started professionally at age 6, rising through the ranks as a studio player and member of several Australian rock bands before he set off on a solo career. One of only five musicians handpicked by his mentor, Chet Atkins, as a Certified Guitar Player (CGP), he's piled up numerous accolades, including two Grammy nominations, two ARIA Awards from the Australian Recording Industry Association (the Aussie equivalent of the Recording Academy) and repeated honors in the Guitar Player magazine reader's poll.

A noted fingerstyle guitarist, Emmanuel frequently threads three different parts simultaneously into his material, operating as a one-man band who handles the melody, the supporting chords and the bass all at once. His talents, which translate in any language, carry him to the far corners of the globe, but Emmanuel never plays the same show twice, and he improvises big chunks of every date. That leaves him open to those technical imperfections, though they also provide some of the humanity to an other-worldly talent.

"It's all about the feeling of the music," Emmanuel says. "And it has to make me feel something. I'm still playing for myself, you know, because I figure if I please me, then I'm pretty sure I'm gonna please you. And that's not an arrogant statement, it's just quality control."

Special guest this evening is Richard Smith.

The Milk Carton Kids
Thursday, May 19, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
tickets

Folk harmony duo The Milk Carton Kids released their third album, Monterey, in May of this year. It was announced Monday that the song “City of Our Lady” off this album was nominated for a Grammy in the American Roots Performance category. Two years ago, the release of their last album, The Ash & Clay, got a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album. They won Duo/Group of the Year at the Americana Music Awards in 2014. Their featured performances and interviews in T Bone Burnett & the Coen Brothers' concert documentary, "Another Day/Another Time,” brought the band its widest audience and their 55-city North American tour last year sold out months in advance. Cultural purveyors from Garrison Keillor to T Bone Burnett to Billy Bragg have hailed the duo’s importance among a group of new folk bands, both expanding and contradicting the rich tradition that precedes them.

Cultural purveyors from Garrison Keillor to T Bone Burnett to Billy Bragg have hailed the duo’s importance among a group of new folk bands, both expanding and contradicting the rich tradition that precedes them.

Yet while some of the band’s many accolades reference a specific genre, the duo quickly transcends those tags with clear inflections of jazz, classical, even the dark lyricism of modern “alternative." This past year, The Milk Carton Kids were asked to pay tribute to Johnny Cash and Emmylou Harris — Cash on the Joe Henry-produced remake of “Bitter Tears,” and Harris with their standing ovation performance at the tribute concert “The Life & Songs of Emmylou Harris,” among luminaries including Kris Kristofferson, Mavis Staples, Alison Kraus, Iron & Wine, and Harris herself. If Cash and Harris taught us that American music is meant to be taken at its expansive word, without confines or borders, The Milk Carton Kids appear to have taken the lesson to heart.

of Peter, Paul and Mary

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.

Although Rita Wilson is well-known as an actress (It’s Complicated, Sleepless in Seattle, recurring roles on CBS’: The Good Wife, HBO’s Girls, recently starring in Larry David’s sold out Broadway hit: Fish In The Dark) as well as a film producer (discovered My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Mamma Mia!), few may be aware that her early show biz ambitions were actually musical. Born and raised in the Hollywood Hills, Wilson harbored dreams of becoming a singer in the ‘60s and ‘70s after falling in love with The Beatles, The Mamas & the Papas, Janis Joplin, and The Supremes, among others. She even took a part-time job as a ticket-taker at what was then the Universal Amphitheatre as a way to see such popular acts of the day as Joni Mitchell, Carole King, James Taylor, and The Eagles.
During the past two years she has collaborated with a number of extremely talented and successful songwriters composing original material to be featured on her second album, self-titled Rita Wilson, scheduled for an early 2016 release. Some of this material was featured in Wilson’s sold-out two-week residency at the famed Carlyle Café in New York City in late 2014.

John Hiatt solo
Sunday, May 1, 2016 @ 7:30pm
tickets


As one of America’s most respected and influential singer-songwriters, John Hiatt’s songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, and Linda Ronstadt. John Hiatt received a Grammy Award nomination for his album Crossing Muddy Waters, and B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy Award for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a John Hiatt composition. In 2007, John Hiatt was honored with his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame and his legacy was even further cemented with a pair of accolades in the fall of 2008: the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting and his induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

More than forty years into his recording career, John Hiatt released his 22nd studio album, Terms of My Surrender. “It’s my Appomattox,” he says, wryly. “Really I don’t know where it came from, that idea of trying to arrange the terms of my surrender. I don’t get to do that. It’s a labor in vain in that respect, if you think you can negotiate that with anyone, or anything. In reference to the title song, it’s in terms of love. You’ve got to give it up. The song says, ‘I can’t negotiate the terms.’”

That’s an essence, perhaps the essence, of the 11 songs on this album, the 11 stories they tell and, together perhaps, one story they express when woven together. Always a keen observer of life’s flings and foibles alike, usually mixed well together, Hiatt’s insights and skills at sharing them have only sharpened over the years.

Justin Hayward: Voice of The Moody Blues
Sunday, May 22, 2016 7:30 pm
tickets

Having spent nearly fifty years at the peak of the music and entertainment industries, Justin Hayward’s voice has been heard the world over. Known principally as the vocalist, lead guitarist and composer of English rock band The Moody Blues, his is a talent that helped soundtrack more than a generation and created a legacy that remains undimmed. Over the last forty-five years The Moody Blues sold fifty five million albums and received numerous awards. Commercial success has gone hand in hand with critical acclaim and the band has been honored on Sunset Boulevard’s Rock Walk Hall of Fame.
Born and brought up in Swindon in the United Kingdom, Justin Haywards’s interest in music started early when he was five years old and his grandfather bequeathed him his large collection of 78 rpm recordings. Having taught himself to play the ukulele, he soon progressed to guitar and by his early teens he was playing in local groups. Upon leaving school at 17 he answered an advertisement in Melody Maker newspaper and successfully auditioned for UK Rock and Roll hero Marty Wilde. Justin Hayward credits Marty Wilde with encouraging him to become a songwriter; they made several recordings and appearances together and remain friends to this day.
Justin Hayward joined The Moody Blues in the summer of 1966. The artist hit his stride immediately with the single “Fly Me High” and followed it up with the classic hit songs “Nights in White Satin” and “Tuesday Afternoon” from the seminal album Days of Future Past. This success showed no sign of abating as Justin Hayward created other classic, era and genre-defining hits such as “Question,” “The Voice” “I Know You’re Out There Somewhere” and “Your Wildest Dreams.” These tracks laid the foundation for the incredible success story of The Moody Blues – as well as Justin Haywards’s solo work – which continues to this day.
When The Moody Blues took a break from touring in 1975, Justin Hayward worked on the Blue Jays, followed by the hit single “Blue Guitar.” Although the Moodies continued to record and tour at the highest level, he also found time to create several solo albums: Songwriter, Night Flight, Moving Mountains and The View From the Hill. Justin Hayward hit the Top Ten globally in 1978 with “Forever Autumn” – created for Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds.
Justin Hayward’s latest album of new songs Spirits Of The Western Sky was followed by several solo tours, and most recently a ‘live in concert’ DVD Spirits…Live, which reached No1 on the Billboard Video chart. In 2015 he toured the UK, Europe and the USA with The Moody Blues, and as a solo artist.

Dead On Live returns to South Orange Performing Arts Center to present a mixed bag from every era of the Grateful Dead’s rich and stylistically diverse heritage in full production, both as heard on the band’s commercial releases and as performed live in some of their most famous shows throughout the years.

Multi-instrumentalist, touring and recording veteran, Marc Muller (Shania Twain, Tommy Shaw, Bruce Springsteen) has brought a cast of world-class musicians together to present with much “deadication,” their truly unique, note-for-note offering paying tribute to the music of the Grateful Dead. Dead On Live also remains true to The Dead’s heart and soul by featuring in every show plenty of good old Grateful jamming to get the kids to dance and shake their bones!

Dead On Live recreates Phil’s rootless syncopation’s, the rhythmic juggernaut of Kreutzmann and Hart, the heart and soul of Pigpen, Bob and Keith’s comping, and the touch and tone of Jerry Garcia. Grateful Dead favorites from the early psychedelic 60’s of Anthem of the Sun, songwriting gems of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty, the iconic “live” era recordings of Europe ‘72 to the odd metered lush productions of From the Mars Hotel, Blues for Allah and Terrapin Station.

A remarkably prolific songwriter, Dan Bern has released around two dozen studio albums, EPs, and live recordings since his first acclaimed Sony-distributed CD in 1997. Either fronting the prodigiously talented band Common Rotation or as a solo performer, he is comfortable and convincing, funny and topical, with an unassuming tip of the hat to Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan, all while sounding thoroughly original and contemporary. Whether writing about stepping back and appreciating the world around us (“Breathe”) or celebrating the venerable voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers (“The Golden Voice of Vin Scully”), Dan’s songs are always literary, sometimes funny, and often cinematic. And it’s not uncommon at a Dan Bern concert to see and hear fans unabashedly singing along to one song after another with no prompting from the stage.

“Sounding like no other singer of her generation” (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as the lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s, NYC-based, chamber-pop group October Project. The hallmark of their sound was Fahl’s power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication.

Now Fahl returns with her album “Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House,” a collection of twenty-three tracks recorded live at one of America’s oldest vaudeville theaters and winner of the Indie Acoustic Award for multi-genre “Album of the Year.” The show was filmed for PBS and is currently airing around the country. Fahl’s elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as folk-pop, which she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto that Boston Globe critic Steve Morse calls “a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms.”

Her upcoming performance will include “Exiles,” a song written for Anne Rice’s new audiobook “The Wolves of Midwinter,” a stunning cover of the Joni Mitchell classic “Both Sides Now,” and many October Project favorites.

The Subdudes & Beausoleil avec Michael Doucet Quartet
Friday, April 29, 2016 @ 8 pm
tickets

A powerful evening of foot stomping music steeped in the sounds of the bayou! Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, the Subdudes have quietly become one of America’s national music treasures. The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude and folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you’ll ever hear from any five musicians. Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, The Subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band’s substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amedée, for a drummer. Tim Cook rounds out the band on bass. Since forming in 1975, Grammy winners BeauSoleil have claimed their undisputed role as the most esteemed Cajun group in music. BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet take the rich Cajun traditions of Louisiana and artfully blend elements of zydeco, New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, country, blues and more into a satisfying musical recipe. From The Grand Ole Opry to Newport Folk, from concert hall to dance floor, the music of BeauSoleil continues to captivate audiences the world over.

Get The Led Out: Playing Led Zeppelin Note for Note
Friday, May 6, 2016 @ 8pm
tickets

We are thrilled to welcome back the premiere Led Zeppelin tribute Get The Led Out after three consecutive sell outs! From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) have captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-create the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.

Dubbed by the media as "The American Led Zeppelin," Get The Led Out offers a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever heard in concert. GTLO also include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band.
“They didn’t just pass Zeppelin 101 with flying colors -- they’re working on their Ph.D. They didn’t just do their Zep homework -- they’re teaching the class.” The Patriot News

Loudon Wainwright III & Iris Dement
Friday, May 13, 2016 @ 8pm
tickets

The critically acclaimed singer/songwriters return to the Music Hall for this incredible co-bill. Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, and wrote his first song in 1968 (“Edgar,” about a lobsterman in Rhode Island). He was soon signed to Atlantic Records by Nesuhi Ertegun, and was lured by Clive Davis to Columbia Records, which released “Dead Skunk.” His songs have since been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. In 2011, they were commemorated by the comprehensive five-disc retrospective 40 Odd Years. Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet)--or HGTB(Y), for short—is the 26th album in the long and illustrious career of Loudon Wainwright III. It follows his acclaimed Older Than My Old Man Now album from 2012—“my death n’ decay opus,” as Wainwright calls it. The youngest of 14 children, born in Arkansas and raised in Southern California, Iris DeMent spent her childhood immersed in gospel and traditional country music. Her 1992 album Infamous Angel established her as a promising and talented artist, picked-up by Warner Bros Records. Her next album, My Life, received a Grammy nomination for best Contemporary Folk. In August 2015, DeMent released her latest and sixth studio album, The Trackless Woods, which sets Russian poet Anna Akhmatova's "Like a White Stone" to song. "DeMent makes music that celebrates humanity's efforts toward salvation, while acknowledging that most of our time on Earth is spent reconciling with the fact that we don't feel so redeemed," writes NPR Music. "Grounded in hymns, early country songs, gospel and folk, DeMent's work is treasured by those who know it for its insight and unabashed beauty.”

Classic Albums Live Performs Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon

tickets

Classic Albums Live re-creates the musical brilliance of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Note for note. Cut for cut. This is not a tribute band. There are no gimmicks or fake English accents. This is simply a live re-creation of one of the greatest pop/rock albums ever made. Classic Albums Live brings together some of the country's finest musicians to recreate live on stage the exact sounds of the greatest albums of the 60s and 70s. Musicians are chosen according to their sound and their fit into a particular niche, be it Pink Floyd, The Beatles, or The Stones. The album might require a sitar player, a children's choir, a string quartet or someone to ring the alarm clock. Whatever it takes, the musicians treat these revered albums like a score -the way a symphony orchestra treats Mozart. ‘Eclipse (A Piece for Assorted Lunatics)’, as it was originally known, was first performed at the Rainbow Theatre in London on February 17, 1972 - more than a year before it was released as Dark Side of the Moon. The music critics loved it. The London Times described it as "... bringing tears to the eyes. It was so completely understanding and musically questioning." Touching on some profound themes including mental illness, conflict, greed, and the space time continuum, the album became a huge success, remaining on the charts for longer than any other album in history. To truly appreciate the music from Dark Side of the Moon, check out Classic Albums Live.

FOR PETE'S SAKE! A CONCERT FOR CLEARWATER
w/ Steve Earle, Tom Paxton, Kate Pierson of the B52's, Tom Rush,
Willie Nile, Lucy Kaplansky and many more

Saturday, June 18, 2016 @ 7pm
tickets

What better way to support Clearwater, the environmental organization and the boat founded by Pete Seeger, than to attend this fundraising concert on Father’s Day Weekend, traditionally the weekend of The Great Hudson River Revival. The concert features an amazing line-up that only Clearwater could bring together including: Tom Paxton, Kate Pierson of the B52’s, Tom Rush, Willie Nile, Lucy Kaplansky, Peter Yarrow, Tom Chapin, Livingston Taylor, David Amram, Josh White, Jr., plus more artists to be announced soon. Come to support Clearwater. Come to celebrate Pete Seeger’s music and legacy. Come to support and celebrate the important environmental work and education that Clearwater does and will continue to do with your help.

Clearwater was founded by Pete Seeger, legendary musician, singer, songwriter, folklorist, activist, environmentalist, and peace advocate, and one of the most influential people of the twentieth century. In 1966, in despair over the pollution of his beloved Hudson River, Seeger announced plans to “build a boat to save the river.” At the time, the Hudson was rank with raw sewage, toxic chemicals and oil pollution; fish had disappeared over many miles of its length. Seeger, along with many other concerned individuals, believed a majestic replica of the sloops that sailed the Hudson in the 18th and 19th centuries would bring people to the river where they could experience its beauty and be moved to preserve it. Inspired by that vision, the organization began with the launch of the sloop Clearwaterin 1969 —a majestic 106-foot long replica vessel.

The sloop Clearwater is recognized as America’s Environmental Flagship and is among the first vessels in the United States to conduct science-based environmental education aboard a sailing ship, creating the template for environmental education programs around the world. More than half a million people have experienced their first real look at the Hudson River estuary’s ecosystem aboard Clearwater. In 2004, the sloop Clearwater was named to the National Register of Historic Places for its groundbreaking role in the environmental movement.
Today, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. and the iconic sloop Clearwater are carrying forward Pete Seeger’s legacy by partnering with Hudson Valley schools and community leaders to raise the bar of environmental education and encouraging youth to become involved as active stewards of their environment and the Hudson River. Through the organization’s multiple environmental education programs, youth empowerment programs, environmental action campaigns, Green Cities initiatives, and unique approach to public outreach, the sloop Clearwater is recognized as a symbol of grassroots action through hands-on learning, music, and celebration.

An Evening with Paula Poundstone
Rescheduled from March 19

Saturday, June 25, 2016 @ 8pm
tickets

Paula Poundstone is recognized as one of Comedy Central's 100 greatest stand-ups of all time. Paula won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and in 2010 she was one of a select group voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. She tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: “Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.” Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: “I peed my pants.” Paula's interchanges with the audience are never mean or done at a person’s expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval less artful comics have received. Watch for Paula in the new Disney Pixar film “Inside Out” opening nationwide June 19th.

Peter Yarrow & Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary
Friday, Sept 30, 2016 @ 8pm
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.

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.

Justin Hayward

tickets

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.

Bela Fleck & The Flecktones
Sunday June 5, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

tickets

 

Featuring Victor Wooten, Roy “Futureman” Wooten and Howard Levy

A Benefit Show for COVER Home Repair.

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.
