HUNTER HAYES

ACOUSTIC KICK-OFF CONCERT

Hunter Hayes

Having spent the past year on a creative odyssey, writing more than 100 new songs and even building his own mobile studio to be able to record music whenever and wherever inspiration struck, Hunter Hayes has pulled the curtain back on the first three tracks from his as-yet-untitled third studio album. Hunter surprised fans by sharing a sampling of his new music—Yesterday’s Song, Amen and Young Blood” via social media on his 25th birthday.

 

The five-time GRAMMY nominee wrote Yesterday’s Song with Barry Dean and Martin Johnson. In early reviews, Rolling Stone Country calls the single a “hard-driving, Keith Urban-like rocker, with some Lenny Kravitz-inspired guitar” and observes that “Hayes is moving on to embrace a new tune and letting go of ‘yesterday's song’ – a clever, totally appropriate way to introduce this surprisingly turbo-charged number.”

Y&T

Y&T

Before Mötley Crüe, before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, Y&T was slogging away in sweaty rock clubs around America. When the band formed in the early 1970s, little did they know they would set the standard for hard rock bands that trailed. Many of the biggest acts of the '80s became popular opening for headliners Y&T—and cut their teeth on the band, as evidenced by the Y&T mentions in tell-all books by acts such as Metallica and Mötley Crüe.

ELVIN BISHOP

Elvin Bishop

On the title track of his new album, Can’t Even Do Wrong Right, legendary blues guitarist, songwriter and singer ELVIN BISHOP spins a tale of a not-too-smart criminal getting caught by his own foolish missteps. The shaggy dog story, fueled by Bishop’s down-home delivery and deep blues slide guitar, is an affirmation of the Chicago Sun-Times’ ebullient praise: “It’s impossible not to like Bishop. He’s always singing something lowbrow and uplifting.” With his buoyant and deceptively loose-sounding ensemble behind him, he’s also playing some of the most spirited and distinctive blues slide guitar today.

The Heart of Rock & Roll

A Tribute to

Huey Lewis & The News

 

The Heart of Rock & Roll

The Heart of Rock & Roll brings to life all the hits of the 80’s super group Huey Lewis & the News. The concept was born in late 2012 when brothers Tony & Roger Langdon, guitarist & front man respectively, for a variety cover band were performing their usual weekend shows.  For years the song The Heart of Rock & Roll was a set list staple mixed in among their band’s other classic rock, pop & R&B songs.  One particular night, a show guest made the comment that Roger, “Kind of looks & sounds like Huey Lewis.”

 

Tony suggested to Roger to go ahead and try a full blown Huey Lewis impersonation to see if there was something to that fan’s comment.  After working out a few songs, it became clear that there was something special going on.  Roger brings the sound, image & style of Huey Lewis to life with such great detail he’s fooled more than a few fans.
