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.

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.

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" } [6]=> object(WP_Post)#1429 (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" } [7]=> object(WP_Post)#1428 (24) { ["ID"]=> int(8069) ["post_author"]=> string(1) "5" ["post_date"]=> string(19) "2019-01-18 09:40:53" ["post_date_gmt"]=> string(19) "2019-01-18 14:40:53" ["post_content"]=> string(4226) "This event has been postponed, and all tickets will be honored on October 2nd.

Dear friends,   It is with great regret that I need to postpone my upcoming June tour.    It is no secret that I have been living with mental illness for many decades. There were times when it was unbearable but with doctors and medications I have been able to live a wonderful, healthy and productive life with support from my family, friends and fans who have helped me through this journey.    As you may know in the last year or so I’ve had 3 surgeries on my back. The surgeries were successful and i’m physically stronger than i’ve been in a long time.    However, after my last surgery i started feeling strange and its been pretty scary for awhile. I was not feeling like myself. Mentally insecure is how I’d describe it. We're not sure what is causing it but i do know that its not good for me to be on the road right now so I’m heading back to Los Angeles.    I had every intention to do these shows and was excited to get back to performing. I've been in the studio recording and rehearsing with my band and have been feeling better. But then it crept back and I’ve been struggling with stuff in my head and saying things I don’t mean and I don’t know why. Its something i’ve never dealt with before and we cant quite figure it out just yet.    I’m going to rest, recover and work with my doctors on this.    I’m looking forward to my recovery and seeing everyone later in the year.    The music and my fans keep me going and I know this will be something I can AGAIN overcome.   Love & Mercy,   Brian Wilson


  He is one of popular music's most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilson’s remarkable journey began in a modest Hawthorne, California home that was filled with music. His mom and dad both played piano, and as a young “boy soprano,” Brian’s vocal gift was immediately evident. He was barely out of his teens when he began to create some of the most beloved records ever... nine consecutive “gold” albums that featured such classics as "Surfer Girl," “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” "Fun, Fun, Fun," “Help Me Rhonda” and "California Girls"...just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on with his family band, the Beach Boys. Pet Sounds; the emotional autobiography of its 23-year old “auteur,” is considered by many to be one of the greatest albums ever made. In the process of bringing it to life, its composer, arranger and producer (that is, Mr. Wilson) rewrote all the rules of what a record could be; as one observer noted, its release was “Independence Day” for rock ‘n’ roll. Primarily working with a new collaborator (lyricist and songwriter Tony Asher), the album featured a dozen originals (including two astounding instrumentals); Pet Sounds was a musical canvas as boundless as Brian’s heart. On the charts in America, the album reached #10 and featured four hit singles (including two Top 10 hits, a reworking of the folk standard “Sloop John B” [#3] and “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” [#8] as well as two others that cracked the Top 40---“God Only Knows” and “Caroline No”). The former is considered by many, including Sir Paul McCartney, to be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded; the latter was released as a solo single under the name “Brian Wilson”.

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.
