And influential. Their songs have been performed by Prince, Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, Mandy Moore, The War On Drugs, Bono, Glen Hansard, Steve Earle, Dawes and many other discerning artists.

The last time they toured America, in 2015, they supported their killer southern rock album Modern Blues, cut in Nashville with players from Muscle Shoals, Texas and Memphis, several of whom joined the band.  This time around the line-up is British (Scott and ace drummer Ralph Salmins), Irish (electric fiddler Steve Wickham, funkmeister bassist Aongus Ralston) and Memphian (Grammy-nominated producer and keyboard wizard Brother Paul Brown). They will recast songs from all periods of the band's career, drawing from the early classic albums This Is The Sea and Fisherman's Blues, right up to their recent run of on-fire releases. Expect performance, excitement, surprises, attitude and songwriting as good as any found anywhere today.

The New York Times raved that A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.” New York 1 cheered, “This will rock your socks off!

A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences – trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s greatest legends. Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin’s favorites, including “Piece of My Heart,” “Cry Baby,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and many others.

Tusk is the number one Tribute to Fleetwood Mac in the world, bar none. No wigs, no backing tracks, no gimmicks, just five musicians recreating the music of Fleetwood Mac to perfection with note for note renditions that no other Fleetwood Mac tribute on the touring scene today can come close to duplicating. Tusk covers all the great hits of Fleetwood Mac, which has featured the talents of Mick Fleetwood, Christine and John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks and others over the years. The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising Tusk have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over twenty-five years. It seemed only fitting that they should come together to form the Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute, and pay homage to a group that dominated the charts during the band members’ formative years. Authentic-sounding and always respectful, Tusk leaves no stone unturned in replicating the sounds of one of the world’s best-loved, top-selling bands.

However, on the night Jack decides to give up, the whole world is momentarily hit with a massive blackout during which Jack is hit by a bus. Upon regaining consciousness, Jack learns to his astonishment that he is apparently now the only one who knows the music of the Beatles. Realizing this improbable opportunity, Jack begins playing the music of the greatest of the rock bands, claiming it as his own. It pays off quickly and Jack becomes a worldwide musical sensation. However, Jack finds himself drifting away from Ellie, only realizing his love for her when she has become intimidated by his success, which depends on a blatant plagiarization that no one could find out. Now, Jack must make a fundamental moral decision about his music to satisfy his conscience as he decides what he truly needs.

They broke records with their 50 Dates/50 States tour, delivered landmark performances at Live Aid and on SNL, and became mainstays of radio, MTV and stages worldwide for more than two generations. Through it all, they’ve remained one of the most consistent – and consistently passionate – progenitors of blues-based rock in pop culture history. For the past 45 years, it’s been very good to be George Thorogood & The Destroyers. Their Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock will prove why like never before. “If you’re content, you may as well be dead.” George laughs with his familiar rasp. “I think everyone has thoughts about retiring, but the phone keeps ringing. You want me and The Destroyers to come to your town, set up our gear, wear some badass clothes and play ‘Who Do You Love?’ End of conversation. Let’s rock!” For Thorogood and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – the power to rock audiences has been both battle cry and creed from the beginning. “Since I was 17,” George says, “all I wanted to do was see how far I could go with my guitar, putting my own spin on music I loved.” After a few hard years as a solo acoustic performer – a period he would revisit with his acclaimed 2017 album Party Of One – George added a drummer and bass player in 1974 to form the electric trio he called The Destroyers. Built around Thorogood’s fiery guitar skills, explosive performance style and a blistering take on blues rarities, the band began to gain a devout following at college parties around their native Wilmington, Delaware. It was at one of their earliest shows that Thorogood had his live performance epiphany. “It wasn’t about the amount of people we drew, but rather the impression we made,” he remembers. “I asked myself, ‘Are we reaching them? Do they want more?’ And we knew from the very first set that we had something special.” It’s on tour that George & The Destroyers flip the switch nightly, delivering what The Toledo Blade calls a “gut-bustin’, guitar-wailin’, face-meltin’, fiery-tempoed, take-no-prisoners, good old-fashioned lunch-bucket rock & roll show” that includes their signature hits “Get A Haircut”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Who Do You Love” and the definitive badass anthem “Bad To The Bone”, along with several surprises. “George has been honing the set list since our bar band days,” explains 43-year Destroyers’ bassist Bill Blough. “It’s been a constant evolution to make it all killer, no filler. We hear our walk-on song, the lights go down, and something still inherently clicks the second we step on stage. We feel the audience’s energy and the show just explodes.” Presented by Count Basie Center for the Arts" ["post_title"]=> string(35) "George Thorogood and The Destroyers" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(16) "george-thorogood" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2019-05-31 11:20:21" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2019-05-31 15:20:21" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(52) "https://thebasie.org/?post_type=tm_event&p=8838" ["menu_order"]=> int(0) ["post_type"]=> string(8) "tm_event" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } [8]=> object(WP_Post)#1480 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(9103) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2019-04-30 09:45:43" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2019-04-30 13:45:43" ["post_content"]=> string(2085) "Pink Martini is turning 25, and invites fans to come celebrate the milestone on their Silver Jubilee tour this fall! Lead by the gorgeous vocals of China Forbes, Portland’s “little orchestra” will be performing songs from throughout their nine studio album career. Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world – crossing genres of classical, jazz and old-fashioned pop – bandleader and pianist Thomas Lauderdale founded Pink Martini in 1994 to provide more beautiful and inclusive musical soundtracks for political fundraisers for causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, the environment, libraries, public broadcasting, education and parks. A quarter century later, Pink Martini is still creating beautiful music and still touring the world, singing in 25 languages at opera houses, concert halls, film festivals, museums and fashion shows. For this tour, the band will also be joined by international singing sensation, crowd-surfing tragi-comedienne and queen of Chanson, Meow Meow. She will perform a handful from the recently released Hotel Amour, backed by Pink Martini. Hotel Amour is the long-awaited collaboration between Meow Meow and Thomas Lauderdale, Pink Martini’s beloved founder and bandleader. These two friends have performed and composed together across the globe for years, from the backstreet bars of Berlin to the glamorous stage of the Sydney Opera House, from London's legendary Royal Albert Hall to Mary' Club, Portland Oregon's legendary strip club. In the fashion that Pink Martini fans have come to know and love, Hotel Amour features several original songs destined to be classics, alongside exquisite journeys into the French, German and Shanghainese canon of the 20th century, with alluring tastes of the 1920s and 30s, bittersweet tragedy, humor, politics, witty wicked Weimar, and aching French torch song, only adding to the genre-defying, era and globe-spanning journey that is any Pink Martini concert.   Presented by Count Basie Center for the Arts" ["post_title"]=> string(41) "Pink Martini with special guest Meow Meow" ["post_excerpt"]=> string(0) "" ["post_status"]=> string(7) "publish" ["comment_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["ping_status"]=> string(6) "closed" ["post_password"]=> string(0) "" ["post_name"]=> string(12) "pink-martini" ["to_ping"]=> string(0) "" ["pinged"]=> string(0) "" ["post_modified"]=> string(19) "2019-05-21 10:41:46" ["post_modified_gmt"]=> string(19) "2019-05-21 14:41:46" ["post_content_filtered"]=> string(0) "" ["post_parent"]=> int(0) ["guid"]=> string(52) "https://thebasie.org/?post_type=tm_event&p=9103" ["menu_order"]=> int(0) ["post_type"]=> string(8) "tm_event" ["post_mime_type"]=> string(0) "" ["comment_count"]=> string(1) "0" ["filter"]=> string(3) "raw" } } ["post_count"]=> int(9) ["current_post"]=> int(-1) ["in_the_loop"]=> bool(false) ["post"]=> object(WP_Post)#1453 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(9533) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2019-07-26 09:45:16" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2019-07-26 13:45:16" ["post_content"]=> string(442) "Rockit!
