The Eagles founding member, the late Glenn Frey, knew what he was saying when he dubbed Little River Band “the best singing band in the world.” Through the ‘70s and ‘80s, LRB enjoyed huge chart success with multi-platinum albums and chart topping hits like “Reminiscing,” “Cool Change,” “Lonesome Loser,” “The Night Owls,” “Take It Easy On Me,” “Help Is On Its Way,” “Happy Anniversary,” “We Two,” “Man On Your Mind,” “The Other Guy,” and “It’s A Long Way There.” Worldwide album and CD sales now top 30 million, and in 1982, LRB set a record for having had Top 10 hits for six consecutive years. In fact, they were the very first band to achieve that remarkable plateau! According to BMI, “Reminiscing” has garnered rare status with over 5 million air plays on American radio, and “Lady” is close behind with over 4 million air plays.

 
 

Kenny G

Kenny G

Kodak Center

Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.

A phenomenally successful instrumentalist whose recordings routinely made the pop, R&B, and jazz charts during the 1980s and ’90s, Kenny G‘s sound became a staple on adult contemporary and smooth jazz radio stations. He’s a fine player with an attractive sound (influenced a bit by Grover Washington, Jr.) who often caresses melodies, putting a lot of emotion into his solos. Because he does not improvise much (sticking mostly to predictable melody statements), his music largely falls outside of jazz. However, because he is listed at the top of “contemporary jazz” charts and is identified with jazz in the minds of the mass public, he is classified as jazz.

Lindsey Stirling remains fearless enough to always dream big. In the over five years since the release of her 2012 self-titled debut, the electronic music impresario, violinist, dancer, and artist quietly and humbly became one of the 21st century’s most innovative stars by clinging to her groundbreaking vision of cinematic violin-driven electronic music. After bowing at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Dance/Electronic Album Chart, holding #1 on the Classical Album Chart for 21 consecutive weeks, and receiving a Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album,” her sophomore opus Shatter Me would not only garner an RIAA Gold certification, but it would rank as the #2 Dance/Electronic Album and #1 Classical Album on Billboard’s 2015 Year-End charts. Attracting over 11 million subscribers and 2 billion-plus views on YouTube, in 2015 Forbes placed Lindsey at #4 on its yearly YouTube artists list, making her the highest-ranked female. Her headline tours would play to a cumulative audience of over 500,000 people worldwide, and her literary debut The Only Pirate at the Party—co-written with her sister Brook S. Passey—became a New York Times Bestseller. Lindsey’s third-studio album Brave Enough, debuted at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, went on to score the #1 spot on Billboard’s year-end Top Dance/Electronic Album list and earned Stirling a 2017 Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album”. In 2017, Lindsey released her first ever holiday album titled Warmer in the Winter. Featuring classic and original songs, the album went on to become the #1 new Christmas album of 2017, ahead of pop music heavyweights such as Gwen Stefani and Sia. It was also the best-selling new holiday album and the best performing holiday album on Pandora with over 40 million spins. She was also the runner-up on Season 25 of ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars” with her partner Mark Ballas A motivational speaker in her spare time, Stirling uses her own story to show teenagers that you’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.

For 26 years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s unique take on American swing and jazz music has thrilled audiences around the world, while their unique and spirited “Wild and Swingin’ Holiday Party” has become an eagerly anticipated annual family event. Singer and band leader Scotty Morris says, “If you’re going to go to a holiday show with your family, this is the one! It really does offer something for everyone.” Drawing on a rich catalogue of holiday classics and Christmas originals from the band’s two full length holiday albums, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy brings its world-renowned live show, and fun and quirky take on the holidays, to you.

Fun arrangements of classic holiday songs in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy style include: Jingle Bells, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, and Winter Wonderland. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is “Andrew’s Sisters” meets the blues, and the just as classic Heat Miser song transports listeners back to another beloved holiday special. The band rips through Chuck Berry’s Run, Run Rudolph, Lou Rawls’ Merry Christmas Baby, and slows things down for Elvis Presley’s Blue Christmas. Detours to New Orleans for Frosty the Snowman, and to the Caribbean for the Calypso A Party for Santa, keep things interesting. The band takes a moment to reflect on the beauty and spirituality of the holidays with their moving arrangement of We Three Kings.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has always made writing original music a priority, and the holidays are no exception. Rockabilly Christmas, Last Night (I Went Out With Santa Claus), Christmas Time in Tinsel Town, and the beautiful and reflective It Feels Like Christmas Time, are the band’s take on the many feelings of the holidays.

With over two decades together, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is still picking up steam and continues to tour, record, and entertain. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and performs them live, on stage – note for note, cut for cut – using the world's greatest musicians.

Led Zeppelin really does sound like the hammer of the Gods. At first listen, it's the guitar riffs that grab you. Then the drums. Then the honey sweet voice of Robert Plant. What's funny is that after years of listening and dissecting the album, it's the bass guitar that I'm now drawn to. Led Zeppelin II has it all: Drum solos! Guitar solos! Lemons! I get emails from people telling me that their kids were conceived to this record! Perhaps that's the ultimate compliment you can pay an album! One thing I know for sure is that Zep fans are unrelenting in their love for the band. Many people don't realize that during the 70s, no other band or artist came close to selling as many albums as Led Zeppelin. At the time, the critics were panning them and making fun of them, but the people spoke. They bought the albums and went to the concerts. The nerdy naysayers were left licking their wounds. No Grammys. No number one singles. No singles! Led Zeppelin was the people's band. And Led Zeppelin II was their call to arms. Every rock musician who picks up an instrument gravitates toward Zep. Every musician says they can play Zep. But most can't. There's an undefinable quality to their music. Once every couple of months, I stay up all night and comb the internet. For bands that can play Led Zeppelin better than CAL, I never find anyone that comes close. I have put together the greatest Led Zeppelin band in the world. I can't believe my luck. I get to rock out with an audience of like-minded people. I can't think of anything better than being in a beautiful communal setting and reveling in one of the greatest albums ever made.” – Craig Martin, Founder and CEO, Classic Albums Live

Dubbed "masters of soulful folk" by Paste, The Wood Brothers formed after brothers Chris and Oliver Wood pursued separate musical careers for 15 years. Chris already had legions of devoted fans for his incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin & Wood, while Oliver toured with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half-dozen albums with his band King Johnson. With drummer Jano Rix added as a permanent third member, it's become quite clear that The Wood Brothers is indeed the main act.

Blue Note released their debut ‘Ways Not To Lose’ in 2006 and ‘Loaded’ 2008. The band moved to Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Artists for ‘Smoke Ring Halo’ with ‘The Muse’ to follow in 2013. After relocating to Nashville, The Wood Brothers released ‘Paradise’ in 2015 recorded at Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye studio. In 2016, the band returned to Levon Helm's famed Woodstock Barn and recorded 'Live At The Barn' which captured their sold-out performance that night and showcased the kind of singularly eclectic and electrifying performance style that's earned them devoted legions of fans around the world.

On February 2nd, 2018, The Wood Brothers released their 6th album, 'One Drop of Truth.' “It’s the freest album we’ve done, the most independent album we’ve done, and was the most fun we’ve ever had making a record,” says Oliver Wood. The end result is undeniably The Wood Brothers’ most dynamic recording to date and was recognized as such when it received a Grammy Award nomination for “Best Americana Album.”

Classic Albums Live takes classic albums and performs them live, on stage - note for note, cut for cut - using the world's greatest musicians.

“Twenty million people bought this album. First on vinyl, then cassette, then CD. Then one day it was on our phones. We’ve lived a life alongside this album. Dark Side of the Moon came out in 1973. It was everywhere. The album cover prism was drawn on countless school binders. We started paying attention to the sound of cash registers. Having a good stereo system was a thing. Classic Albums Live knows how to perform this album. It’s complex and full of soul. Just getting the alarm clocks together was a feat; all the little voices. Then you had to find someone that could sing ‘Great Gig in the Sky.’ We did, and it’s joyous. The musicians care about this album. It was our flagship show in 2003. It’s the album that changed everything. It’s a masterpiece that will be remembered forever.” – Craig Martin, Founder and CEO, Classic Albums Live
