In 1957 The Kingston Trio emerged from San Francisco's North Beach club scene to take the country by storm, bringing the rich tradition of American folk music into the mainstream for the first time. During the late 50s & early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation.

Through changing times, the Trio has played on, remaining popular for a simple reason... great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them. And fifty-eight years after Tom Dooley shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road thirty weeks a year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.

As a singer, songwriter, activist, and independent entrepreneur, Ani DiFranco has been setting her own pace-and encouraging countless admirers to do the same-for more than 20 years. But while she has been known as the "Little Folksinger," her music has grown far beyond her acoustic solo roots in cozy venues to embrace jazz, soul, electronica and even more distant sounds. All of these are featured in DiFranco's new Righteous Babe release,Allergic To Water (2014), where she also blends abstract imagery and deceptively understated melodies with personal reflections on her life in New Orleans.

CASEY CARLE as "Yesac Elrac The Bubblemaniac", a bubble artist extraordinaire with a flair for showmanship and infectious energy for bubbling - from the intricate to the massive.

DOUG ROUGEUX as "Bub", the gentle, bumbling, clever "everyman" character doing his best to keep the show flowing smoothly but instead discovers many ways to turn common and unusual items into amazing manipulators of spherical liquids.

Together they share an apartment of inflatable furniture in a unique world of tarps and pools where the ordinary becomes extraordinary. Almost always by accident, they create a soapy circus for all ages!

This internationally appealing, non-verbal show is performed to a variety of musical styles and well placed silences.

The first ever stage show to combine the talents of two top-notch comic bubble entertainers.

Ritter recently released the official music video for his new song Homecoming, which features thousands of hometown images submitted directly to Ritter by his fans. Of the video, The Huffington Post raves, Homecoming moves from a solo piano setting a butterscotch tone, to the voice of a young man backed by a band chugging in the background; to an acoustic middle eight and back to the glorious rhythm…It's seamless, sweet, and real."

Released to widespread critical praise, Sermon On The Rocks was recently named one of PopMatters' "80 Best Albums of 2015" with NPR Music including his song "Getting Ready To Get Down" in their "Favorite Songs Of 2015" list, and Paste Magazine naming "Birds of the Meadow" in their "50 Best Songs of 2015" list. The New York Times asserts, "The literary-minded songwriter Josh Ritter…recharges his music on his eighth studio album, Sermon on the Rocks…Harking back to Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and maybe a little Mark Knopfler, Mr. Ritter has always been a slinger of serious ideas and high-flown imagery," while The Wall Street Journal declares, "The new album's music is airy, propulsive and more often than not, catchy." NPR Music's Stephen Thompson raves, "…it's an approach that brings out some of Ritter's slipperiest, nimblest wordplay…and a few genuine head-turners. Not many singers could pull off a whopper like, 'If you wanna see a miracle, watch me get down,' but when Ritter gets there near the end of 'Getting Ready To Get Down,' it lands like a grand punchline."

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.

Lyle Lovett & Robert Earl Keen
Thursday, September 29, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
tickets

A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician.

t's not always easy to sum up a career — let alone a life's ambition — so succinctly, but those five words from Robert Earl Keen's calling-card anthem just about do it. You can complete the lyric with the next five words — the ones routinely shouted back at Keen by thousands of fans a night ("and the party never ends!") — just to punctuate the point with a flourish, but it's the part about the journey that gets right to the heart of what makes Keen tick. Some people take up a life of playing music with the goal of someday reaching a destination of fame and fortune; but from the get-go, Keen just wanted to write and sing his own songs, and to keep writing and singing them for as long as possible.

"I always thought that I wanted to play music, and I always knew that you had to get some recognition in order to continue to play music," Keen says. "But I never thought of it in terms of getting to be a big star. I thought of it in terms of having a really, really good career and writing some good songs, and getting onstage and having a really good time."

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.

Graham Nash
Sunday, October 9, 2016 @ 8 pm
tickets

Graham Nash's new studio album This Path Tonight was released April 15, 2016. The Boston Globe says of it “…Nash’s first album of originals in 14 years is marked by hope and possibility shadowed by loss. This is most apparent with the fiercely introspective journey toward love’s rewards, “Myself at Last”: “When all is said and done/ it’s hard to count the cost.” At times the lyrics are infused with the wonder of youthful desire (“when I turn my eyes toward you my quiver feels so full”). But the songs are grounded by the acknowledgment of time’s merciless march. “At the end I guess nothing matters,” Nash muses despairingly on “Back Home,” making this wise song cycle’s passionate quest for fulfillment even more poignant.”

Legendary singer-songwriter GRAHAM NASH is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee-with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a GRAMMY Award winner.

Nash’s passionate voice continues to be heard in support of peace, and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain seminal benefit events. In 2011, Nash was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide.

In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which delivers an engrossing, no-holds-barred look back at his remarkable career and the music that defined a generation. The book landed him on the New York Times Best Sellers list, and will be released in paperback format this fall.

In recognition for his contributions as a musician and philanthropist, Nash was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth. While continually building his musical legacy, Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer and visual artist. With his photography, Nash has drawn honors including the New York Institute of Technology’s Arts & Technology Medal and Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters and the Hollywood Film Festival’s inaugural Hollywood Visionary Cyber Award. His work is collected in the book Eye to Eye: Photographs by Graham Nash; he curated others’ work in the volume Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock ‘n’ Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash (2009).

Nash’s work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide. His company Nash Editions’ original IRIS 3047 digital printer and one of its first published works—Nash’s 1969 portrait of David Crosby— is now housed in the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution in recognition of his revolutionary accomplishments in the fine arts and digital printing world.

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.

Matthew Sweet
Thursday, September 15, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
tickets

Matthew Sweet spent the 1980s as an unappreciated jangle Pop guitarist with Oh-OK and Lloyd Cole, as well as a solo artist. In 1991, with the release his third album entitled Girlfriend, he emerged as the leading figure of the American Power Pop revival. Like his British counterparts Teenage Fanclub, Matthew Sweet adhered to traditional song craft but subverted the form by adding noisy post-Punk guitar and flourishes of Country-Rock, resulting in an amalgam of the Beatles, Big Star, R.E.M., and Neil Young.
Recorded with guitarists Richard Lloyd and Robert Quine, Girlfriend became a critical and commercial hit with its title track reaching the Top Five on the Modern Rock charts. For the next five years, as Alternative Rock dominated Rock & Roll, Matthew Sweet became a very popular concert attraction and solidified his reputation as the premiere Alternative Pop singer-songwriter. His next two records, Altered Beast (1993) and 100% Fun (1995) were both critically acclaimed with the latter reaching platinum status and making many year-end best-of lists.
Matthew Sweet began playing music while he was a high-school student in his native Lincoln, Nebraska. Upon graduation in 1983, he decided to attend the University of Georgia in Athens because of its burgeoning underground music scene. Once at college, he met Lynda Stipe and joined her band, Oh-OK, in time to play on their second EP, the Mitch Easter-produced Furthermore What. The following year, he and Oh-OK drummer David Pierce formed Buzz of Delight and released Sound Castles. Over the next two years, Matthew Sweet cut a demo tape with producer Don Dixon. Columbia Records heard the Buzz of Delight record and his own demo and offered him a contract in 1985. Upon signing with Columbia, Matthew Sweet relocated to New York and recorded his debut, Inside (1986), which features him playing nearly all of the instruments supported by a drum machine along with several cameos, including Chris Stamey, Fred Maher, Anton Fier, and Aimee Mann.
The follow-up to Girlfriend with was produced with Richard Dashut, who had previously been best known for his work with Fleetwood Mac and Lindsey Buckingham. Again featuring Quine and Lloyd, the resulting Altered Beast (1993) became a college radio hit and its “The Ugly Truth” and “Time Capsule” became MTV hits. Matthew Sweet recorded his fifth album, 100% Fun (1995), with Brendan O’Brien who had previously worked with Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots. 100% Fun went gold then platinum on the strength of the hit single “Sick of Myself.”
Matthew Sweet worked again with O’Brien for Blue Sky on Mars (1997). It was followed by In Reverse (1999), Time Capsule (2000) and Sunshine Lies (2008). Released in 2011, Modern Art features 12 compositions of Matthew Sweet’s trademark wistful, yearning Pop.

Eaglemania: World's Greatest Eagles' Tribute
Friday, September 17, 2016 @ 8 pm
tickets

EagleMania has emerged as a major act throughout the East Coast. The music of the Eagles appeals to a wide variety of age groups, and the combination of heartfelt ballads, rock anthems laden with guitar harmonies, and the unmistakable sound of vocal harmonies as only the Eagles can do, has propelled EagleMania for the past 40-plus years, positioning them as one of the most successful and popular tribute bands in music history.

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.

Released to widespread critical praise, Sermon On The Rocks was named one of PopMatters’ “80 Best Albums of 2015” with NPR Music including his song “Getting Ready To Get Down” in their “Favorite Songs Of 2015” list, and Paste Magazine naming “Birds of the Meadow” in their “50 Best Songs of 2015” list.

Get the Led Out: The American Led Zeppelin
Thursday, November 17, 2016 @ 7:30 pm
tickets

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, Get The Led Out 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 Led Zeppelin favorites such as “Tangerine” and the “Battle of Evermore” being performed in its’ original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis joining the band. GTLO has amassed a strong national touring history, having performed at major club and performing arts center venues across the country.
GTLO’s approach to their performance of this hallowed catalog is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe 100 years from now they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless.”
A GTLO concert mimics the “light and shade” that are the embodiment of “The Mighty Zep.” Whether it’s the passion and fury with which they deliver the blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems, it’s their attention to detail and nuance that makes a Get The Led Out performance a truly awe-inspiring event!

The Rubin is thrilled to welcome Nicole Atkins back to the Museum for a Naked Soul performance. A rare artist whose timeless songwriting and raw, emotional voice spans the ages, Atkins will perform songs from her most recent and much-anticipated third album Slow Phaser.

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).

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.

Peter Yarrow & Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary
Friday, September 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.

Lyle Lovett & Robert Earl Keen
Sunday, October 2, 2016 @ 7pm
tickets

Texas singer-songwriters Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen who, as friends spent many a night performing together on their front porches – will perform acoustic, stripped-down versions of their most well-known songs, and share the humorous and heartwarming stories behind them. A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett has appeared in 13 feature films, and on stage and television. Among his many accolades, besides the four Grammy Awards, he was given the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was recently named the Texas State Musician….Now three-decades on from the release of his debut album — with well over a dozen other records to his name, thousands of shows under his belt and still no end in sight to the road ahead — Robert Earl Keen remains as committed to and inspired by his muse as ever. And as for accruing recognition, well, he’s done alright on that front, too; from his humble beginnings on the Texas folk scene, he’s blazed a peer, critic, and fan-lauded trail that’s earned him living-legend (not to mention pioneer) status in the Americana music world. And though the Houston native has never worn his Texas heart on his sleeve, he’s long been regarded as one of the Lone Star State’s finest (not to mention top-drawing) true singer-songwriters.

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.

Mavis Staples & Los Lobos
Sunday, November 20, 2016 @ 7pm
tickets

Two Music Hall favorites return for one incredible night of rock, soul, gospel, and more!
Mavis Staples is living, breathing history. She is an alchemist of American music, having continuously crossed genre lines like no musician since Ray Charles. Weaving herself into the very fabric of gospel, soul, folk, pop, R&B, blues, rock, and hip hop over the last 60 years, this iconic singer has seen and sung through so many changes, always rising up to meet every road. Now in her seventh decade, with the release of her new album Livin’ on a High Note (ANTI-), she is only gaining momentum. Produced by M. Ward with songs by Neko Case, Justin Vernon, Nick Cave, Ben Harper, Tune-Yards, Aloe Blacc and others, the album serves as a summation and furtherance of her illustrious career. Refusing to fade away, she continues to tour incessantly, remaining as vital, engaged, and true as always. There is no persona; she is, simply and untouchably, Mavis—and Livin’ on a High Note is the symphony of her life.
Since 1974, East L.A.'s Los Lobos have been exploring the artistic and commercial possibilities of American biculturalism, moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock & roll, knocking down imposing boundaries to formulate music that is distinctly a thing unto itself. Initially gaining fame as part of the early-Eighties roots-rock revival, they didn't so much strip music down as mix it up, playing norteño, blues, country, Tex-Mex, ballads, folk, and rock. The group -- who enjoyed calling themselves "just another band from East L.A." -- have been guests on albums by Ry Cooder, Elvis Costello, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Roomful of Blues, and Paul Simon, and their music has been featured in films such as La Bamba and Desperado. While often cited as one of the great bands of Latino Rock, Los Lobos' eclectic sound in fact defined them as a vital example of America's cultural melting pot. This cross-cultural appeal has sold millions of records and garnered Los Lobos their share of Grammy Awards.

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.

Jim Breuer
Friday August 26, 2016 @ 9 pm

tickets

 

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.

In September 2013, Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which delivers an engrossing, no-holds-barred look back at his remarkable career and the music that defined a generation. The book landed him on the New York Times Best Sellers list, and will be released in paperback format this fall.

In recognition for his contributions as a musician and philanthropist, Nash was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth. While continually building his musical legacy, Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer and visual artist.

L.A.-based buzz band The Record Company tours behind their new album Give It Back to You, which features the recent #1 hit single, “Off the Ground”. The rock/roots trio of Chris Vos (guitar, lead vocals, harmonica), Alex Stiff (bass, guitar, vocals) and Marc Cazorla (drums, piano, vocals) has already been hailed by LA Weekly for “making bluesy music that would sound more at home in a sweaty, backwoods Mississippi juke joint,” while Time Out Los Angeles has described their sound as “reminiscent of some of the best acts of the ’50s and ’60s—like if John Lee Hooker and the Stooges had a well-behaved love child.” The comparisons are apt. “We have been influenced by early electric blues, so some of that influence certainly shows,” acknowledges Vos. “But we’re just as influenced by bands like the Stones and The Stooges as we are by blues legends like Hooker, Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed.”
