Off the Chart is a rock band made up of nine employees of New York Presbyterian Hospital. Together for almost a decade, the members of this band save lives during the day and give audience members the time of their lives at night.

PGP (The Peter Gusmano Project) is a cutting edge rock 'n' roll trio delivering a blistering mix of rock guitar instrumental compositions and the best classic rock 'n' roll covers from the '70s and beyond. Started by Peter Gusmano, the group is a live project that was developed to promote Guitar for a Cure, a 501(c3) official charity (also formed by Gusmano). 100% of all CD sales are donated to Project A.L.S., and the project has thus far raised over $20,000 for A.L.S. research. Guitar for a Cure has been named as a top independent fundraiser for the charity for the last three years.

Formed in 2010, Fifth of Bourbon is an electric blues band from NYC focused on performing creative arrangements of both traditional and contemporary blues and rock music. Imagine koko Taylor fronting Led Zeppelin and performing electric blues versions of Howlin' Wolf songs, and you've got a good idea of this this band. The group features Matt Fink on drums, Kathleen Fletcher on vocals, Greg Gentile on guitars, Fred Gilde on keyboards, Ken Umezaki on bass, and Scott Warren on guitars.

"A Horse with No Name," "Sister Golden Hair," "Ventura Highway," "Tin Man," and more – these classic tracks epitomize the sound of Grammy-winning rock group America, led for over four decades by Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell. The two met in high school in London (along with former bandmate Dan Peek) in the late '60s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song "A Horse with No Name." America quickly became a household name, with an impressive string of hits following that first No. 1 single. Over 40 years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound.

Reacting to past troubles with former labels, the artists initially skipped the traditional distribution route for their music and released some of their first tracks by leaking them on the internet. Among the tracks distributed in this fashion was "Move On," which recounts the group's backstory through music.

Argentinian ska-punk band Los Autenticos Decadentes (One True Thing) was formed in 1986 as a high-caliber party band.

Inheriting the fine musical tradition of Uruguay and influenced by the best of Argentine rock, the music of No Te Va Gustar (The Like) (NTVG) traverses a unique path into the heart of its native culture. With heartfelt, intelligent lyrics and a versatile musicality that makes definitive categorization all but impossible, the band boasts a rock-reggae sound that falls somewhere between authentic and cosmopolitan. The band's six studio releases and two DVDs represent the strength of its live performances, which have taken the group to cities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Argentina, and more – a reflection of the immense global popularity that NTVG has amassed in little more than a decade.

A Pioneering Woman in the World of Electric Blues Guitar
DEBBIE DAVIES BAND
Performing 2 shows!
Event Details: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=1599

Tickets $10.00 in advance, $15.00 day of show
General Admission Seating / First come, first seated / This show will take place in Lucille's Bar & Grill, located inside B.B. King Blues Club

Debbie Davies cut her teeth in Albert Collins's Ice Breakers and was a featured guitarist performing behind one of the most innovative bluesmen of all time. Since leaving Collins's band in 1991 she has released 11 CDs, been honored with countless award nominations and a Blues Music (W.C. Handy) Award, and continues to grow as one of the world's outstanding blues players.

Debbie Davies's rise to the upper echelon of blues music started at an early age as she absorbed the music heard constantly in her home. Her professional musician parents were either sitting at the piano or spinning discs on their turntable, filling the air with the sounds of big band jazz, harmony vocal groups, or the pop icons of the day. But the young Davies was particularly attracted to the bluesy sounds of her father's Ray Charles records, and by the age of 12 she realized that her affinity for an instrument was not for the piano, but for the guitar.
