Infinity Hall Presents Vince Gill at the Warner Theatre on 7/15

Infinity Hall will present Country Music Hall of Famer VINCE GILL and his top-notch band at the Warner Theatre on Friday, July 15 at 8:00 pm.

One of the most popular and most recorded singers of the past quarter-century, superstar Vince Gill has become the measure of excellence in country music. His vocal performances are spellbinding, his songwriting emotionally powerful and his guitar-playing world-class. Gill just released his new MCA Records album, Down To My Last Bad Habit, of which he wrote/co-wrote, co-produced and is a featured musician on all 12 songs.

Gill achieved his big breakthrough with "When I Call Your Name," which won the Country Music Association's Single of the Year award. Since then, he has won 17 more CMA honors, including Song of the Year four times - making him the most-awarded artist in that category in CMA history. Since 1990, Gill has received 20 GRAMMY Awards and has sold more than 26 million albums. The Academy of Country Music has handed Gill 8 awards, including their prestigious "The Home Depot Humanitarian Award" and the "Career Achievement Award." Gill was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. He is also a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In August 2012, Gill was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is a member of the four-time Grammy-nominated band The Time Jumpers; Rounder Records released the band's first studio album in 2012.

After working more than 40 years as a professional musician, Gill has established himself as one of the most successful guitarists of his generation. Combining a deep knowledge of Americana, bluegrass, and classic country with the fire of '60s rock, Gill has earned a place next to his musical heroes.

Gill has also been dubbed the "Springsteen of country music," as his shows are known to last for hours. Those along for the ride are his ace band which consists of Willie Weeks, Bass; Billy Thomas, Drums; Tim Akers, Keyboards; Jeff White, Guitar, Vocals; John Jarvis, Keyboards; Tom Bukovac, Guitar, Wendy Moten, Backing Vocals and Paul Franklin, Steel Guitar.

Built by Warner Brothers Studios and opened in 1931 as a movie palace (1,772 seats), the Warner Theatre was described then as "Connecticut's Most Beautiful Theatre." Damaged extensively in a flood, the Warner was slated for demolition in the early 1980s until the non-profit Northwest Connecticut Association for the Arts (NCAA) was founded and purchased the theatre. The Warner reopened as a performing arts center in 1983, and restoration of the main lobbies and auditorium was completed in November 2002. In 2008, the new 50,000 square foot Carole and Ray Neag Performing Arts Center, which houses a 300 seat studio theatre, 200 seat restaurant and expansive school for the arts, was completed. Today, the Warner is in operation year-round with more than 160 performances and 100,000 patrons passing through its doors each season. Over 10,000 students, pre K-adult, participate in arts education programs and classes. Together, with the support of the community, the Warner has raised close to $17 million to revitalize its facilities. NCAA's mission is to preserve the Warner Theatre as an historic landmark, enhance its reputation as a center of artistic excellence and a focal point of community involvement, and satisfy the diverse cultural needs of the region.
