Grammy Award winner, former Steve Miller Band guitarist and current member of super-group, The Dukes of September (featuring Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald), Boz Scaggs will be in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Thursday, May 15, at 8 p.m. This special event includes an open bar and tastings courtesy of Whole Foods Marketing of Danbury beginning at 7:15 p.m. for all ticket holders. He is perhaps best known for his artistry as a singer, songwriter and guitarist and for his multi-Platinum hits 'Lowdown,' which won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Song, 'Lido Shuffle,' 'What Can I Say' and the ballad 'We're All Alone,' which became a worldwide hit for Rita Coolidge. With Memphis, his first studio album in five years, Scaggs looks back to his roots -- musically and biographically. 'Rainy Night in Georgia', 'Corinna Corinna' and 'Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl' are featured classics. A casual listen to the Boz Scaggs discography makes one thing obvious: He is both a musical seeker and a man of sizable talent with explorations in blues and R&B, rock and jazz, which have produced lasting work and an acclaimed career with an enduring respect among musicians. The Bar and Grille on 7 will pour a free glass of house wine with dinner the night of this show when tickets are presented. This event is part of the Xfinity Rock Series, No.?109 Cheese & Wine Art, Wine and Jazz Series?and is underwritten by AcousticMusic.org.
