SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS THIRD BASE COACH TIM FLANNERY SELLS OUT ALL FOUR BENEFIT CONCERTS FOR BRYAN STOW! We enjoyed being a part of it and ask that everyone continue to support Bryan on his road ahead.

January 15, 2013

TIM FLANNERY – LONGTIME THIRD BASE COACH FOR THE
WORLD SERIES CHAMPION SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS —
TO HOST AND PERFORM WITH BAND AT BENEFIT CONCERTS IN
REDWOOD CITY, MILL VALLEY, NAPA AND SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA
FOR INJURED FAN BRYAN STOW ON JANUARY 24, 25, 26 AND 27

Longtime San Francisco Giants third base coach, Tim Flannery (www.timflannery.com), has organized four more benefit concerts for Giants fan Bryan Stow who was critically injured when he was attacked in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the season opener for the teams in late March 2011.

The initial concert will take place on Thursday, January 24, at the Fox Theatre in Redwood City, California with the three subsequent concerts occurring at the Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California on Friday, January 25 , The Uptown Theatre in Napa, California on Saturday, January 26 and Kuumbwa Jazz in Santa Cruz, California on Sunday, January 27 (please see links below for info on each).

The shows will feature Tim — who has performed with such rock notables as Bob Weir, Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Jimmy Buffett, Merle Haggard, Jackie Greene and others over the years — along with his band, The Lunatic Fringe and special musical guests.

The coach, former player and broadcaster thought his music would be the best way to help Bryan and his family.

Tickets for all shows are on sale now with VIP packages available for most.

All proceeds will be going to the Stow Foundation.

Bryan Stow — a proud father of two, a paramedic and huge fan of the San Francisco Giants — is on the road to recovery and making progress.

He sustained severe injuries to his brain and was placed into a medically induced coma after the incident.

It would be months before he would go outside.

Since the tragedy, he has amassed a fan club of his own including Tim, home run king Barry Bonds, two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Tim Lincecum and the entire San Francisco Giants organization.

It wasn’t long before Flannery got involved in fundraising efforts and, through a few concert performances and DVD sales of a show, he has generated almost $70,000 for the cause.

His efforts haven’t gone unnoticed as Phil Lesh and Bob Weir (founding members of the Grateful Dead) named Tim as their Sports Illustrated “Sportsman of the Year” last year (see http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/magazine/sportsman/11/27/Tim-Flannery-Phil-Lesh-Bob-Weir/index.html).

“Flan” continues his mission with the four shows this month.

On October 25, 2012, the world became a little brighter as Bryan attended Game 2 of the World Series at AT&T Park (Giants vs. Tigers).

We ask that you help spread the word and heighten the awareness of the forthcoming performances.

QUEENSRYCHE SIGNS RECORD DEAL AND ANNOUNCES NEW LINE-UP

January 24, 2013

QUEENSRYCHE SIGNS WORLDWIDE RECORD DEAL WITH CLEOPATRA RECORDS
FOR AN EFFORT THAT WILL FEATURE GUEST APPEARANCES BY
K.K. DOWNING OF JUDAS PRIEST FAME, TY TABOR OF KING’S X AND BOBBY BLOTZER OF RATT

LINE-UP FOR FORTHCOMING CD AND 25TH ANNIVERSARY MINDCRIME TOUR NOW SET
IN STONE WITH ADDITION OF DRUMMER SIMON WRIGHT AND GUITARIST ROBERT SARZO

QUEENSRYCHE — featuring original lead singer GEOFF TATE at the helm — have just signed a worldwide record deal with Los Angeles-based independent record label, Cleopatra Records.

Although a line-up was originally announced in the fall of 2012, things have changed.

The band will now feature GEOFF TATE along with bassist RUDY SARZO (Ozzy/Dio/Whitesnake/Quiet Riot), guitarist KELLY GRAY (Queensryche 1998 – 2001), keyboardist RANDY GANE and stellar new additions, guitarist ROBERT SARZO (Hurricane) and drummer SIMON WRIGHT (AC/DC /Dio/Dio Disciples/UFO).

WRIGHT takes over for previously announced drummer BOBBY BLOTZER, who will be returning to RATT as an integral part of the band that made him famous.

“I’m very much looking forward to being involved in the Queensryche project with Geoff,” states SIMON WRIGHT. “I’ve always admired his singing and songwriting and working with Rudy Sarzo again is going to be cool! Between this and my other project, Dio Disciples, I look forward to a very busy year!”

QUEENSRYCHE, with all members cited above, will soon be entering the studio for the first Cleopatra effort due out later this year.

The recording will mark the band’s thirteenth studio album and its first with this particular line-up.

Legendary guitar slinger K.K. DOWNING of Judas Priest fame will be making a special guest appearance on the forthcoming CD as will King’s X guitarist TY TABOR and RATT drummer BOBBY BLOTZER.

TY TABOR comments, “I’m very happy that Geoff considered me for this record. It will be great to play with all of these great musicians.”

Beginning in early April, QUEENSRYCHE will be hitting the road to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the band’s epic 1988 release, Operation: Mindcrime, performing all fifteen songs from the album (including “Revolution Calling,” “Operation: Mindcrime,” “I Don’t Believe in Love” and “Eyes of a Stranger”) along with other well-known hits and rarities from the catalog they’ve compiled over the past 30 years (see list of scheduled dates below).

“I try to surround myself with the best players available and feel our longtime fans deserve nothing less,” says long time QUEENSRYCHE front man GEOFF TATE. “I expect the forthcoming effort to be one of our best yet.”

Last November, TATE released his first solo CD in over a decade titled, Kings & Thieves (InsideOut Music) and toured with his solo band in support of the CD, which included dates with the legendary Alice Cooper.

GARY U.S BONDS TO HEADLINE LIGHT OF DAY FOUNDATION SHOW IN NYC ON JANUARY 16

ROCK AND ROLL LEGEND GARY U.S. BONDS HEADLINES FIRST-EVER
LIGHT OF DAY FOUNDATION SHOW AT HARD ROCK NEW YORK ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2013

Concert at Hard Rock Cafe New York Features Additional Performances by
Willie Nile, the Liza Colby Sound and Joe D’Urso & Stone Caravan

Rock and roll legend Gary U.S. Bonds and his band, The Roadhouse Rockers, headline the Light of Day Foundation’s first-ever show at the iconic Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square on Wednesday, January 16, 2013. Additional performances include Willie Nile, the Liza Colby Sound and Joe D’Urso & Stone Caravan. Proceeds from the show benefit the Light of Day Foundation (www.lightofday.org), which funds research into possible cures, improved treatments and support for patients who suffer from Parkinson’s disease and other neuromuscular disorders. Proceeds from show will also go to Team Fox, the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

The New York show kicks off an extended weekend of Light of Day concerts that include more than 20 events in Asbury Park, New Jersey from January 17 through January 21, 2013. Vincent Pastore, who played Sal Bonpensiero on the HBO hit show, The Sopranos, is hosting the Hard Rock Cafe New York show along with radio disc jockey Rich Russo, whose free-form show, “Anything, Anything,” airs weekly on 107.1 The Peak in Westchester County and 105.5 WDHA in northern New Jersey.

Bonds first rose to prominence in the early 1960s, when his song, “Quarter to Three,” released in June 1961, reached Number 1 on the Billboard chart. Bonds’ other Top 10 hits at the time included “New Orleans,” “School is Out” and “Dear Lady Twist.” He headlined a 1963 European tour, which also included The Beatles.

In the early 1980s, Bonds had a career resurgence when he collaborated with Little Steven Van Zandt and Bruce Springsteen for the albums Dedication and On the Line. His comeback song, “This Little Girl,” hit Number 5 on the rock chart in 1981. Bonds has been a dedicated supporter of Light of Day for many years and has appeared at various Light of Day events in the U.S. and Canada.

Gary recently released a Christmas CD titled, Christmas is ON!, over the holidays and his new book, By U.S. Bonds: That’s My Story is slated to come out early this year.

Singer-songwriter Willie Nile’s last three albums, Streets of New York, House of a Thousand Guitars and The Innocent Ones have received great critical acclaim. His hometown paper, The Buffalo News, called the three albums, “three of the finest recordings to ever straddle the worlds of singer-songwriter fare and good ol’ street-tough rock n’roll.” A long-time Light of Day favorite, Nile is known for his scintillating live performances.

Joe D’Urso is a singer-songwriter “blessed with one of those unmistakable whisky-tainted Asbury Park, New Jersey voices that makes the story in every song come alive,” according to a show review by Paul M. Sinclair. D’Urso and his band Stone Caravan have been part of Light of Day since its start 13 years ago. D’Urso serves on the board of directors of LOD.

Liza Colby formed her current band in 2009, combining her own original style with influences from the late 1960s, early 1970s and the British Invasion. Colby describes her sound as “rockin’ soul” that will make you get up and dance!

$25 for general admission and $75 for a seated VIP ticket, available through Ticketweb at www.ticketweb.com.

GARY U.S. BONDS ROCKS THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH RELEASE OF “CHRISTMAS IS ON!”

GARY U.S. BONDS ROCKS THE HOLIDAY SEASON
WITH RELEASE OF VERY FIRST FULL-LENGTH
CHRISTMAS CD TITLED, “CHRISTMAS IS ON!”

GARY US. BONDS AND SPECIAL GUESTS
TO PERFORM CHRISTMAS SHOW AT THE STRAND THEATRE
IN LAKEWOOD, NEW JERSEY ON NOVEMBER 29
AS PART OF “RESTORE THE SHORE” CONCERT SERIES

More than 50 years after he first hit the music scene, Gary U.S. Bonds proves that he can still rock with the best of ’em by releasing his very first full-length Christmas CD titled, Christmas is ON!

The disc — which will be officially released on Tuesday, November 27 via G.L.A. Records — features ten tracks including three originals written by Gary and his daughter, Laurie: “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” “Christmas Is A Phone Call Away” and “Santa Bring My Baby Home To Me.”

Christmas is ON! also includes the Irving Berlin classic, “White Christmas” and the holiday season staple, “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” along with eight other numbers that celebrate the spirit of the holidays.

Christmas is a time to be spent with family and friends and with this new release, Gary U.S. Bonds shares his musical gifts and brings the party.

“I love a good time had by all and what better way to spread the good cheer than release a Christmas CD full of music to get your feet moving and your spirits lifted,” states Bonds, the legendary master of good time party sounds. “All I can say is that it’s been 45 years since I recorded a Christmas song and thought that it was about time to do it again. I really enjoyed making this album.”

Christmas is ON! finds Gary sharing production chores with his daughter, Laurie (“Lil’ Mama”), who is also a featured vocalist on the album alongside her mother and Gary’s wife, Laurie.

The collection of cuts is a tasty assortment of Christmas old, Christmas new, Christmas borrowed and Christmas blue.

“We Wish You A Merry Christmas” simply brings the house down capturing the essence, energy, spirit and style of Bonds.

“Baby, Baby It’s Christmas” is a rare, unplugged anthem to the holidays that highlights Gary soaring above a chorus of strings, treating the elegant lyric like an old friend who’s dropped in to remind us all about what’s really important this time of year.

Of course, no Bonds effort is complete without an up-tempo party sound or two and the “Christmas Is On” title track easily fills the wish list along with the sly, “Christmas Is A Phone Call Away,” which calls to mind The Coasters classic, “Shoppin’ For Clothes,” done Bo Diddley style.

“It’s Christmas In Nu Awlins” is a solid second line stomp in familiar territory for Gary, who then takes us further down south from the Crescent City to parts near Montego Bay and shows that his Caribbean repertoire includes both calypso and reggae beats.

On Thursday, November 29, Gary U.S. Bonds and Special Guests will be performing hits, rarities and new Christmas songs at The Strand Theatre in Lakewood, New Jersey (www.strand.org) as part of the venue’s “Restore The Shore” concert series, in what promises to be an unforgettable night of music.

The following week, on Tuesday, December 4 at 6:00pm eastern, Gary will be appearing at J&R Music World (located at 23 Park Row in New York City – www.jr.com), where he’ll performing a few songs from the Christmas is ON! CD, and personally signing copies for fans in attendance.

This will culminate another busy year for Gary, who has nine Top 40 hits, five Top 10’s and a number one song — the immensely successful 1961 million-selling single, “Quarter to Three” — under his belt.

Although Bruce Springsteen has been known to play Gary’s biggest hit, “Quarter to Three,” on occasion, The Boss (who’s been a friend now for well over 30 years…) recently invited Gary up on stage at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on September 21 to join him and the E Street Band on “Jole Blon” and “This Little Girl,” two hits made famous by Gary, the latter of which was written by Springsteen.

It was the first performance of “This Little Girl” by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band since 1981 and only the third of “Jole Blon,” making it a truly special evening.

In addition to Gary’s new CD, he’s in the final stages of his forthcoming memoir, By U.S. Bonds: That’s My Story, due out early next year on Wheatley Press.

But first things, first… CHRISTMAS IS ON!

It makes no difference if you’ve been naughty or nice this year as Santa Gary is coming down your chimney to start your party and he’s not leaving until he’s had a good cup of cheer and a slow dance with your sister.

Put down your egg nog and move your feet… the sounds of Gary U.S. Bonds this holiday season are hard to beat!

QUEENSRYCHE ANNOUNCES DATES FOR 25th ANNIVERSARY OPERATION: MINDCRIME TOUR 2013

QUEENSRYCHE TO EMBARK ON
25TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR OF BAND’S EPIC RELEASE,
OPERATION: MINDCRIME, WITH NEWLY ANNOUNCED LINE-UP

MINDCRIME TOUR BEGINNING IN SPRING 2013 TO FEATURE
ALL FIFTEEN SONGS OF ALBUM ALONG WITH
SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCES AND SURPRISES

Further laying down the gauntlet and keeping the music he’s created over the past three decades alive, Queensryche vocalist and founding member Geoff Tate will be taking the newly-announced line-up on the road next year to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the band’s epic 1988 release, Operation: Mindcrime.

The tour — with dates slated to begin in April (see below) — will feature the arsenal of bassist Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne/Quiet Riot/Whitesnake/Dio), drummer Bobby Blotzer (Ratt), guitarist Kelly Gray (Queensryche/Myth) and keyboardist Randy Gane (Myth) along with special guest appearances and plenty of surprises.

“It’s great to be performing with all of these guys who have been true friends for years,” comments Geoff. “Kelly, Randy and I formed Myth more than 30 years ago and I’ve known Rudy and Bobby for several years as well. I think we are all inspired by the collaboration and couldn’t be more excited to bring it to our fans next year.”

In 2006, Queensryche brought the theatrical interpretation of the Mindcrime saga to audiences all over the world.

A year later, the band would release Mindcrime at the Moore, a double DVD featuring the theatrical performances of both Operation: Mindcrime I & II albums that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Music DVD Chart.

The DVD set would mark the band’s first #1 chart debut, quickly achieving gold status, selling over 50,000 units.

The performance of Operation: Mindcrime next spring will cover all fifteen songs from the album including such fan favorites as “Revolution Calling,” “Operation: Mindcrime,” “I Don’t Believe in
Love,” and the closing track, “Eyes of a Stranger.”

It will also feature other selections from the Queensryche catalog including songs from Operation: Mindcrime II.

The news of the 25th Anniversary Mindcrime Tour comes just a few weeks after Tate’s eagerly-awaited sophomore solo release, Kings & Thieves, was released on InsideOut Music (11/6/12).

His first solo release in more than a decade, Kings & Thieves is a journey into the mind of one of rock’s most dynamic vocalists.

“My goal with this record was to make a solid rock album,” says Tate. “I wanted it to be an album that I could play live that would be both satisfying and fun because, as a singer, you need to create a show that has a lot of dynamics to it and takes people on a ride.”

Hang on to your seats.

It’s been said that “a rolling stone gathers no moss,” and that couldn’t be more true of Tate, as he hit the ground running in mid-October for an intensive trek of tour dates in support of Kings & Thieves, expected to last throughout the year.

Among the highlights of the current tour were several Canadian dates with the legendary Alice Cooper earlier this month.

For all confirmed performances, please see www.queensryche.com or www.geofftate.com/tour.

HAPPY TOGETHER TOUR 2012 TO START FRIDAY, JUNE 8TH!

HAPPY TOGETHER TOUR TO CELEBRATE THIRD
CONSECUTIVE YEAR IN “SIXTIES STYLE” BY BRINGING
BACK SOME OF THE DECADE’S MOST POPULAR ARTISTS

THE TURTLES FEATURING FLO & EDDIE,
THE MONKEES LEAD SINGER MICKY DOLENZ,
THE BUCKINGHAMS, THE GRASS ROOTS AND NEWEST
ADDITION, GARY PUCKETT & THE UNION GAP TO EMBARK
ON MAJOR U.S. TOUR BEGINNING JUNE 8, 2012

Here they come again to a venue near you!

In the summer of 2010, the Happy Together Tour — which featured five incredible artists performing some of the greatest pop rock of the sixties — took to the road in celebration of the tour’s 25th Anniversary with many of the same artists that shared the stage together in 1985 including The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie, The Grass Roots and The Buckinghams.

To no one’s real surprise, the sixties faithful would show up in mass to see the show, which also included Mark Lindsay, former lead singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders, and The Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz.

For last year’s tour, The Association went along for the ride (while Micky Dolenz toured with The Monkees) and it, too, had similar success.

Both tours, encompassing approximately 20 dates each, played to many-a-packed house throughout the United States and, as a result, Happy Together is now returning for its third consecutive year on an extensive 42 date tour beginning June 8 in Columbus, Georgia (see complete itinerary below).

Along with The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie, The Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz, The Buckinghams and The Grass Roots, new addition Gary Puckett & The Union Gap will be a part of the festivities.

Gary Puckett & The Union Gap was one of the most successful musical groups of the sixties. Gary’s unmistakable signature voice garnered six consecutive gold records and top ten Billboard hits such as “Young Girl” and “Woman Woman.” In 1968, Gary Puckett & The Union Gap sold more records than any other artist including the Beatles. Gary Puckett has performed on more than thirty network television shows and prime time specials during his career, even adding a command performance for the President and Prince Charles at the White House. The Union Gap disbanded in 1971. Gary continues to tour nationally and internationally.

“Happy Together” by The Turtles hit #1 on the charts in 1967 (displacing the Beatles’ “Penny Lane”) and remains a staple on classic rock radio to this day. Although their biggest hit and signature song, it’s just one of their nine Top 40 hits, which includes such popular songs as “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “Elenore,” “You Showed Me” and “It Ain’t Me Babe.” In 1968, far ahead of their time, they would release one of music’s first concept albums, The Turtles Present the Battle of the Bands, where they pretended to be eleven different bands with different names, each providing a song in a different genre.The album — which showcased their incredible range of vocal talent — spawned the hits “Elenore” and “You Showed Me” (both peaking at #6 on the Billboard charts). Mark and Howard have remained plenty busy over the years with both The Turtles featuring Flo & Eddie and their extracurricular music activities. In 2009, a new Turtles compilation CD was released titled, Save The Turtles: The Turtles Greatest Hits, which was issued on their own FloEdCo label. In all, the band has sold over 60 million albums worldwide to date.

In 1966, hot on the heels of their new NBC television show, The Monkees would release a self-titled debut album that would top the U.S. charts for thirteen consecutive weeks and sell an overwhelming 3.2 million copies in just three months. The single, “Last Train to Clarksville,” from the album would be their first #1 hit. Their second #1 hit came quickly with “I’m a Believer” (featured on the band’s second album, More of The Monkees), which had over a million advance orders. The band would continue to put out numerous hits such as “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday” among others… In 1986, the four members got together for “The Monkees 20th Anniversary World Tour,” a 145 date trek that would become the largest grossing tour of the year. The band — who reconvened this year for a brief but memorable tour — remain as iconic as ever…

“Kind of a Drag” from The Buckinghams would also reach the pinnacle of chart success, yet mark just one of many popular hits from the band including “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “Don’t You Care,” “Susan” and “Hey Baby (They’re Playing Our Song).” Their success in 1967 would lead them to be named “The Most Listened To Band in America” by Billboard Magazine.

The Grass Roots burst upon the scene in ’67 and would not only amass over a dozen Top 40 hits, but go on to perform in front of an estimated 600,000 people in Washington, D.C. on July 4, 1982 setting an all-time attendance record for an concert performance consisting of just one act. Between 1967 and 1972 — thanks to numerous hits such as “Midnight Confessions,” “Let’s Live For Today,” “Sooner or Later,” “I’d Wait A Million Years” and “Temptation Eyes,” the band would set a record for being on the Billboard charts for 307 consecutive weeks. Sadly, we lost lead singer Rob Grill in 2010 but the music lives on…

Once again, fans can expect to hear many of their favorite hits this summer!

The Happy Together Tour 2012 promises to be another good time had by all.

ROCK’N’BLUES FEST — FEATURING JOHNNY WINTER BAND, EDGAR WINTER BAND, RICK DERRINGER, MOUNTAIN’S LESLIE WEST AND SAVOY BROWN’S KIM SIMMONDS — TO MAKE TOUR DEBUT IN LATE JULY FOR A STRING OF APPROXIMATELY TWO DOZEN DATES ACROSS AMERICA

Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones once said, “If you don’t know the blues… there’s no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.”

Beginning in late July, the Rock’n’Blues Fest will debut featuring five well-known players who were initially inspired to pick up their instruments due to their love for rock and blues: Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer, Leslie West and Kim Simmonds (see tour itinerary below).

“I think the blues will always be around,” says legendary blues guitarist Johnny Winter, who will be performing as part of the Johnny Winter Band and headlining the Rock’n’Blues Fest tour. “People need it.”

As the story goes, at the age of 17, Johnny went to see B.B. King in his home state of Texas, and requested a turn at the mic. King eventually gave in and handed his guitar to Johnny, who ended up getting a standing ovation for his performance. Needless to say, it wouldn’t be long before Johnny had his own legion of followers.

Johnny released his first solo album, The Progressive Blues Experiment, and the music world took notice, leading to his historic performance at Woodstock. Twenty years and several successful solo albums later, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame. In the late 70’s, he collaborated with another blues legend, Muddy Waters, on three separate albums of Waters’, including the Grammy-winning Hard Again (1977). Over the years, he put out approximately two dozen solo albums including his most recent highly-acclaimed recording entitled, Roots, which he and his band recently performed a track from on Late Show with David Letterman. Named as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, Johnny Winter still remains one of the top blues/rock guitarists touring today.

Joining Johnny for the Rock’n’Blues Fest “ride” will be his younger brother, Edgar Winter, who has certainly met with considerable acclaim in his own right with such monster hits as “Free Ride” and the chart-topping rocker, “Frankenstein.”

“As far as I’m concerned, blues and jazz are the great American contributions to music,” comments Edgar, who will be bringing the Edgar Winter Band along for the almost two-month trek.

A multi-instrumentalist (keyboards/sax/percussion) whose music encompasses many different genres including rock, blues, jazz and pop, Edgar first hit the national spotlight with his early recording of “Tobacco Road,” featured on his 1970 debut album, Entrance. Edgar would soon form the band White Trash and release two hit albums in ’71 and ’72 titled, Edgar Winter’s White Trash and Roadwork. Hot on the heels of the certified gold album, Roadwork, Edgar would put together an entirely new outfit called The Edgar Winter Group that would originally feature guitarist Ronnie Montrose. The band’s first effort, They Only Come Out at Night, would spawn both the hit singles, “Free Ride” and “Frankenstein,” and remain on the charts for an incredible 80 consecutive weeks. The pivotal album would eventually reach double-platinum status, selling more than 2 million copies. More recently, Edgar achieved chart success in 2003 with the song, “Dying To Live” — featured as “Runnin” (Dying to Live) in the film Tupac Resurrection — as the Eminem-produced song hit #5 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Singles sales chart. With over 20 albums and numerous collaborative efforts to his credit, Edgar Winter has not been satisfied to ride the wave of popular music stardom. His music has been featured in several major national television and radio and advertising campaigns. In addition, his music can be heard in no fewer than fifteen film and television projects.

Next on the bill is rock guitarist Rick Derringer, who’s had an illustrious career as both a solo artist and critical band member.

Air guitarists will surely be out in force when Rick breaks into his well-known rock anthem, “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo.” The song continues to be a staple on rock radio and was featured in several movies including The Spirit of ’76, Rush, Stag, What A Girl Wants and the cult classic, Dazed and Confused. It’s a little known fact that years before his success as a solo artist, Rick had a band at the age of 17 called The McCoys that had a #1 hit in 1965 called, “Hang on Sloopy.” The song would eventually be knocked out of the top spot by The Beatles’ “Yesterday.” A year after its release, The McCoys would find themselves as the openers for the entire Rolling Stones American tour. Although written and recorded a few years earlier, Rick released his most famous version of the song in 1974 and never looked back… In 1977, he would appear on the last Led Zeppelin North American Tour. In the years to follow, Rick would perform with such artists as Alice Cooper (“Under My Wheels”), Steely Dan (“Show Biz Kids” and “Chained Lightning”), KISS, Todd Rundgren and Weird Al Yankovic among others including both Johnny and Edgar Winter. From 1986 to 1992, Rick would tour with Cindy Lauper and co-write a song from her True Colors album titled, “Calm Inside The Storm.” Before embarking on last year’s Hippiefest tour, Rick toured Europe with Ringo Starr as a member of Ringo’s All-Starr Band.

Although perhaps best known as a founding member of the band Mountain, guitarist Leslie West began his musical career with an R&B/Blue-eyed soul rock outfit called The Vagrants, who would quickly enjoy a few hits. Shortly after the formation of Mountain with bass guitarist/producer Felix Pappalardi, keyboardist Steve Knight and drummer N.D. Smart in 1969, the band would find themselves performing on day two of the legendary Woodstock festival in August of that year. Not too long after the event, new drummer Corky Laing would join the fold and the band would release their first Billboard Top 40 single, “Mississippi Queen.” The rest is rock history as the song would be played on rock radio for years to come. Mountain would follow-up that hit with the Jack Bruce-penned, “Theme for an Imaginary Western,” one of the eleven songs they performed at Woodstock. Considered one of the pioneers of heavy metal, Rolling Stone magazine once identified them as a “louder version of Cream.” In the early seventies, Mountain would temporarily disband with Leslie and Corky collaborating with Creem bassist Jack Bruce for a cutting-edge group called West, Bruce and Laing. In 1976, West would play guitar for the track, “Bo Diddley Jam” on Diddley’s 20th Anniversary of Rock’n’Roll all-star album. In 2005, he contributed to Ozzy Osbourne’s Under Cover album, performing guitar on a remake of “Mississippi Queen.” The following year, he immersed himself in the blues, once again, with his latest solo album titled, Blue Me, on the Blues Bureau International label. Later that year (2006), he would be honored by being inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. In addition to fronting Mountain, Leslie continues to record and perform on his own.

Considered one of the architects of British blues, Kim Simmonds began performing professionally in London in the mid-60’s after learning how to play guitar by listening to his brother’s blues records as a teenager. As leader and founder of the legendary blues rock band, Savoy Brown, he has 49 album releases currently available and continues to tour all over the world with the band as well as a solo acoustic act. In 1967, the band would help propel the UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the United States, invigorating the style forever. In the process, Savoy Brown became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970’s, with their vast influence stretching into modern rock as we know it today. In 2011, the band celebrated its 45th anniversary by releasing a new CD titled, Voodoo Moon. Later in the year, Kim would release his most recent effort, Out Of The Blue, a collection of varied material that placed him in a new setting as both singer and songwriter. Among the most loved, most respected and longest running of its genre, Savoy Brown is one of the magical names in blues rock. Kim Simmonds will be performing the best of the best at this year’s Rock’n’Blues Fest.

Due to their close involvement with each other throughout their careers, it’s likely that various artists on the forthcoming Rock’n’Blues Fest will unite on stage to perform some unexpected classic songs together.

One can only hope.

Five great musicians… one incredible tour of rock and blues music.

Who said, “There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues?”
