INCOGNITO featuring MAYSA

Showtime @ 8:00PM / Doors Open @ 6:00PM

Tickets $29.50 in advance, $35.00 day of show

Standing Room Only/ Limited table seating available/ First come, first seated

About the show: "The enduring success of Incognito is one of the great stories of U.K. music during the last 30 years. Look at the recent history of soulful U.K. artists and you will find any number of short-lived acts that have achieved pop success. Narrow the list to those that have created a uniquely British sound and that have endured as a global phenomenon on their own terms, and the list becomes short. Immense credit goes then to Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick and Incognito, formed in 1979 and currently celebrating over 30 years of positive vibes and undiluted jazz funk."

THE VENTURES

Please Note: This show has been moved from February 27th. Tickets purchased for that show will be honored tonight.

Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=1174

Showtime @ 8:00PM / Doors Open @ 6:00PM

Tickets $30.00 in advance, $35.00 day of show

General Admission Seating / First come, first seated

About the show: "Not the first but definitely the most popular rock instrumental combo, The Ventures scored several hit singles during the 1960s - most notably "Walk, Don't Run" and "Hawaii Five-O." However, the band made its name in the growing album market, covering hits of the day and organizing thematically linked LPs. Almost 40 Ventures albums charted, and 17 hit the Top 40. The Ventures soon became one of the most popular worldwide groups, with dozens of albums recorded especially for the Japanese and European markets. They toured continually throughout the '70s and '80s, influencing Japanese pop music of the time more than they had American music during the '60s.

"Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, The Ventures remain incredibly active, recording and touring to the delight of fans around the world. Over 50 years into their storied career, the band is considered by many to be the greatest surf band ever, boasting hits like "Perfidia," "Telstar," "Secret Agent Man," "A Summer Place," "Blue Moon," and "Ram-Bunk Shush." However, while it is true that The Ventures' style (marked by the Fender solid body guitars played by Bog Bogle and Don Wilson) was a critical influence in defining that musical genre, they are much more than that. Surf is just a subset of what The Ventures are: the best-selling instrumental rock band in music history."

A booth for 4 = $214, A booth for 6 = $321

General Admission Seating / First come, first seated

About the show: "In the early '90s, Van Morrison was standing at a London newsstand when a fan approached and began regaling him about this great unknown R&B singer he'd heard. The singer's name was James Hunter. Morrison went to hear Hunter at a gig in Wales and subsequently hired him as a backup singer for several years of touring and recording. Hunter appeared on Morrison's live album A Night in San Francisco (1994) and on the studio set Days Like This (1995). Hunter's first solo album, Believe What I Say (1996), also featured a guest spot by Morrison. Things were looking up for this Colchester native.

"With the release of Hunter's second and latest U.S. studio album The Hard Way (2008), Hunter took another giant step toward staking his place in the pop-soul pantheon alongside Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, Charlie Rich, and Van Morrison."

Ozric Tentacles

Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=1205

Showtime @ 8:00PM / Doors Open @ 6:00PM

Tickets $15.00 in advance, $19.00 day of show

General Admission Seating / First come, first seated

About the show: "Ozric Tentacles are, simply put, legends of the U.K. underground. One of the most influential bands to emerge from the U.K.'s festival scene, the band (also known simply as the Ozrics) layers ambient and ethereal soundscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves, and psychedelic progressive rock in an open exploration of music and the soul. In their over 25-year career, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock 'n' roll life. The band has flourished through a number of lineup changes, spawned several side projects (including Eat Static and Nodens Ictus), created their own record label (Dovetail & Stretchy), put out over 25 albums, scored a hit record, and sold over a million albums worldwide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the band's existence has never wavered."

Friday, April 6, 2012

Jerry Lee Lewis

Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=1211

Showtime @ 8:00PM / Doors Open @ 6:00PM

Tickets $125.00 in advance, $130.00 day of show

General Admission Seating / First come, first seated

About the show: "It has been over half a century since true American original Jerry Lee Lewis first rocketed to the top of America's pop, country, and R&B charts with "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and "Great Balls of Fire." While those iconic performances still define the essence of rock 'n' roll for millions, "The Killer" himself continues to thrill audiences around the world with his unique, scorching blend of rock, blues, country, and gospel.

"Lewis continues his legacy with his latest release Mean Old Man (2010). The disc, the much-anticipated follow-up to his 2006 album Last Man Standing, finds the legendary musician combining his country roots with the compelling force of his signature rock, blues, and gospel style in a dream set list of classic songs, many of which might not exist had Lewis not kicked open the floodgates back in the '50s. Simply put, the disc is an important and monumental music from the man Rolling Stone listed among the Greatest Artists of All Time - Jerry Lee Lewis, perhaps the last American original."

Steely Dan Guitarist

Jon Herington BAND

with special guest Steely Dan Drummer

KEITH CARLOCK

Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=1414

Showtime @ 8:00PM / Doors Open @ 6:30PM

Tickets $20.00 in advance, $20.00 day of show

Standing Room Only tickets available for $12.00

General Admission Seating / First come, first seated /This show will take place in Lucille's Bar & Grill, located inside B.B. King Blues Club

About the show: "Jon Herington is the veteran touring and recording guitarist for Steely Dan, a position he continues to hold after 11 years. You can find his guitar work with Steely Dan on Two Against Nature (2000) and Everything Must Go (2003), as well as on the Steely Dan VH1 Storytellers program and the Making of Aja DVD from the brilliant Classic Albums series.

"The Jon Herington Band is currently the hard-hitting, stripped-down guitar, bass, and drums power trio version of Herington's larger band. The trio is specifically designed for the club and theater concert scene, with a blues, rock, and pop vibe and an emphasis on songs and guitar playing. There is plenty of killer guitar for fans of Herington's playing, and the lyrics are often funny in addition to being clever and compelling. Great support is supplied by a no-nonsense, take-care-of-business band featuring Dennis Espantman on bass and Keith Carlock on drums. All three band members sing, providing a much bigger sound than a typical trio. After years of playing the supporting (though highlighted) role in Steely Dan, Herington has stepped out on his own in a major way as a singer-songwriter not to be missed."

An Evening With

MELANIE

Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=923

General Admission Seating. First come, first seated

About the show: "Folk singer-songwriter Melanie recorded her first album in 1967 and attracted national attention as well as a loyal fan following two years later when she performed at Woodstock, the legendary rock festival. During the early '70s, Melanie's gentle, acoustic sound on songs like "Lay Down," "Beautiful People," and "Brand New Key" (which topped the charts in 1971) stood in sharp contrast to the hard-driving, heavy-metal rock that dominated the charts.

"Melanie was booked as the first solo pop/rock artist ever to appear from the Royal Albert Hall to Carnegie Hall and at the Metropolitan Opera House. She later opened the New Metropolitan Opera House in New York, the Sydney Opera House, and in the General Assembly of the United Nations, where she was invited to perform on many occasions as delegates greeted her performances with standing ovations. In addition, the top television hosts of all time - Ed Sullivan, Johnny Carson, and Dick Cavett - have battled to book her."

About the show: "Strunz & Farah, performing together since 1980, have created an entirely new expression for the acoustic guitar. From Costa Rica and Iran respectively, Jorge Strunz and Ardeshir Farah have brought the cultural riches of their native lands to their highly virtuosic, rhythmic, and improvisation-rich original instrumental compositions, profoundly influencing guitarists everywhere. The duo's music is perhaps best described as original international acoustic improvisational guitar music, world guitar, or ethnojazz. Their style is saturated with their cultural roots, which include Afro-Caribbean, Latin American folk, flamenco, and Middle Eastern music, and it draws heavily from the jazz concept of improvisation."

About the show: "Eddie Money was born Edward Joseph Mahoney in 1949 in Brooklyn. Although he dreamed of being a musician, after high school he decided to follow in his father's footsteps and become a police officer. In 1968, after serving as a New York City Police Officer for two years, Money put his law enforcement career on hold to pursue music. He moved to Berkeley, California, and began performing at local clubs. Then, in 1976, after changing his surname from Mahoney to Money, his fate changed forever when he was introduced to legendary promoter Bill Graham. The two quickly became close, with Graham serving as both a mentor and manager to Money. Said Graham of Money: "Eddie Money has it all ... not only can he sing, write, and play, but he is a natural performer." With a long and incredible career of platinum sales and Top 40 hits, Money's music continues to transcend generational gaps and shape the music of today."
