The Grateful Dead's key songwriter Robert Hunter (Ripple, Friend of the Devil, Truckin) will perform an exclusive Long Island engagement at the Suffolk Theater on July 27. Some of rock's greatest voices including Joan Osborne (What if God Were One of Us, Right Hand Man, and others), 50-60s soul legend Ben E. King (Stand by Me, Up on the Roof, Save the Last Dance for Me, Rose in Spanish Harlem), and Dar Williams (Cry, Cry, Cry) will bring their talents to the stage. And of course, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes (Fever, I Don't Wanna Go Home) will bring the sounds of Jersey to the Island! You won't wanna go home...
The spirit of country and southern rock will be in the house as The Suffolk presents Ashley Monroe, 2013 Country Music Award (CMA) nominee, Billboard and Rolling Stone's #1 Country Album of the Year, and member of the group the Pistol Annies with partners Miranda Lambert and Angaleena Presley (#2 peak on the Billboard Country Music Charts). Ashley Monroe will bring her wit and southern charm to the stage with one of country's greatest songwriting talents and voices. Songs such as "(Give me) Weed Instead of Roses)" and "Two Weeks Late" demonstrate honesty, sass, and pure country grit. The Grand Ole Opry tradition will continue at the Suffolk Theater with a two-day run of the off-Broadway musical "Always... Patsy Cline" and southern rock legends the Georgia Satellites performing their hits such as "(Don't Hand Me No Lines and) Keep Your Hands to Yourself" and "Battleship Chains".
