America & Karla Bonoff to Play Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, 10/11
The Civic Arts Plaza presents AMERICA in concert at the Fred Kavli Theatre at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza on Friday, October 11, 2013 at 8:00 pm. Joining America will be special guest, singer-songwriter Karla Bonoff.
For more than 40 years, American has been a perennial classic-rock favorite. Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate Dan Peek) met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song "A Horse With No Name". America became a global household name and paved the way with an impressive string of hits following the success of their first #1 single. Forty years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound.
America's material encompasses an ambitious artistic swath; from effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys to soul-bearing ballads, America displays a flawless blend of disparate genres and styles as wide-open as the great American plains.
From anonymous horses to fast-moving trains, America's extraordinary four decade musical legacy of consummately crafted pop/rock songs, trademark lush harmonies and evocative lyrical landscapes will never go out of style.
Joining America will be Karla Bonoff whose songs have been interpreted by other artists such as "Home" by Bonnie Raitt, "Tell Me Why" by Wynonna Judd, "Isn't It Always Love" by Lynn Anderson, and "Someone To Lay Down Beside Me" by Linda Ronstadt.
