Jo Dee Messina

"...it was clear that Jo Dee was on stage, before her fans, in an effort to let loose, gift them with an unforgettable evening, and express the freedom she feels in regard to her music since cutting the ties that bound her for years. Also evident was that her message resonated with the audience members who joined in Jo Dee’s celebration, savoring every second of the show from the opening note."

Jen Swirsky | County Music Concert Review, February 2015

Jo Dee Messina fans in Tucson will soon get what they’ve been clamoring for as the multi-platinum, award-winning country singer/songwriter hits the Fox stage singing a blend of her older music, familiar hits and songs from her amazing new album (just released this March) titled ME. Do not be the country music fan who hears about this incredible concert after it's over! Between Jo Dee's descriptive storytelling, warm audience interaction and her beautiful voice, the perfect acoustics and intimate atmosphere of The Fox is the best possible showcase for an unforgettable evening!

Although this album is a fresh start for Jo Dee, she is no stranger to the entertainment world. Debuting in 1996 with the hit single "Heads Carolina, Tales California," she has charted 9 number one singles, 16 Top 40 singles, and sold more than 5 million records worldwide.

Chosen by fans, ME marks Jo Dee’s most personal music to date as she wrote or co-wrote many of the songs and realized it on her own newly established label, Dreambound Records. For the first time in her career, Jo Dee is able to boldly do things her own way and pave her own path to success. “This album is truly for you, the people who appreciate the creative process, as well as my amazing fans,” exclaims Jo Dee. “There’s no question, I wouldn’t be where I am today without your love and support. You’ve been with me since the beginning. This album is a fresh start for me, and I want us to go on this exciting journey together.”

Overall, ME is a journey. It’s honest. It’s funny. It’s sad. It’s life. At this point in her life, Jo Dee isn’t afraid. She’s a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a published author and an incredibly gifted vocalist - here is a preview of the music you have in store.

George Clinton

One of the foremost innovators of funk music and the mastermind behind the bands Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the ’70s, capturing over 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums. The one night only performance on the Fox stage will be a spectacle like none other - with an enormous mothership, outrageous costumes, and marathon jams!

Parliament and Funkadelic captured 40 hit R&B singles, including No. 1 hits "Flashlight," "One Nation Under a Groove," "Aqua Boogie," and "(Not Just) Knee Deep." Clinton's collaborators included keyboardist Bernie Worrell, guitarist Eddie Hazel, bassist Bootsy Collins, saxophonist Maceo Parker, trombonist Fred Wesley.

Clinton was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 with 15 other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.

Clinton started his career with the Parliaments, a barbershop doo-wop ensemble, which scored a major hit with "I Wanna Testify" in 1967. Clinton then began experimenting with harmonies, melody, and rhythm, and taking cues from the psychedelic movement, forever setting himself apart from the Motown era.

By the early 1970s, the group's tight songs evolved into sprawling jams around funky rhythms. They dropped the "s" from the band name and Parliament was born. Around the same time, Clinton spawned Funkadelic, a rock group which fused psychedelic guitar distortion, bizarre sound effects, and cosmological rants with danceable beats and booming bass lines. Funkadelic recorded a number of influential concept albums, including Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow, Maggot Brain, and America Eats Its Young.

During the 1980′s, Clinton began his solo career with 1982′s “Computer Games”. Several months later, Clinton’s “Atomic Dog” hit number one on the R&B charts. The early ’90s saw the rise of funk-inspired rap (courtesy of Digital Underground, Dr. Dre, and Warren G.) and funk rock (Primus and Red Hot Chili Peppers) that re-established the status of Clinton & co. as one of the most important forces in the recent history of black music. Clinton’s music became the soundtrack for the rap movement, as artists from MC Hammer, to LL Cool J to Snoop Doggy Dogg depended heavily on the infectious groove of Clinton productions as the foundation of their recordings.

In the 1980s, Clinton emerged as a successful solo artist. He released Computer Games with the No. 1 hit single "Atomic Dog," produced the Red Hot Chili Peppers' pioneering Freaky Styley, and signed with Prince's Paisley Park label. He also began to experiment with the urban hip-hop music scene, as a generation of rappers reared on P-Funk began to name-check him.

Clinton has become recognized as the godfather of modern urban music. Beats, loops, and samples of P-Funk have appeared on albums by OutKast, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot, De La Soul, Fishbone, and many others. As Clinton has said, "funk is the DNA of hip-hop and rap." In 1996, Clinton released the solo album The Awesome Power of a Fully Operational Mothership, which reunited him with Bernie Worrell and Bootsy Collins.

In 1997, Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Guitar Center's Hollywood Rock Walk, and earned a Lifetime Achievement Award at the NAACP Image Awards. In 2002, Spin voted Parliament-Funkadelic No. 6 of the 50 Greatest Bands of All Time.

Over the past decade, Clinton has continued to play sold-out shows across the globe, while a countless number of his songs have been licensed for film and television. Currently, he is compiling new and old songs for an exclusive online-only release, fighting for artist rights through the P-Funk Initiative, and blogging about these issues on his website, FunkProbosci.com. Clinton also continues to support the youth through the Mother's Hip Education Foundation, and through donations to the Barack Obama Green Charter High School in Plainfield, New Jersey.

In October of 2011 at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York, an all star line up of entertainers including Bootsy Collins, Paul Schaffer, Questlove, Fab Five Freddy, and countless others came out to pay tribute to Dr. Clinton for 50 years of music making. The event called "Absolute Funk" also benefitted New York City hospitals.

At the start of the 2012, Berklee College of Music President Roger H. Brown present Dr. Clinton with an honorary doctor of music degree in recognition for the funk icon's enduring musical and cultural contributions. Dr. Clinton spent four days with the Berklee students culminating in a collaborative concert with the music pupils.

In the midst of non stop touring that took Dr. Clinton and P-Funk all the way to jazz festivals in the UK and France earlier this summer, the septuagenarian rock star took time out to break ground at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture in late June. During the groundbreaking on the National Mall, P-Funk headlined a concert called "Bring Back the Funk" with Ivan Neville and Meshell Ndegeocello. The museum also acquired The Mothership, the iconic stage prop made famous in P-Funk's 1970s live shows. The ship, donated by Dr. Clinton, will help anchor a permanent music exhibition when the museum opens in Washington, D.C in 2015.

Other highlights of Dr. Clinton's 70th year include running a campaign to help digitize and preserve P-Funk's amazing catalog of master analog tapes. Dr. Clinton is an also an advocate for artists rights through fighting for his right to the copyrights of his work and raising awareness of copyright issues. His efforts were recently the subject of an in depth piece on National Public Radio.

O.A.R.

O.A.R. (Of A Revolution)

Classic American author Thomas Wolfe famously stated "you can't go home again," but don't tell that to the members of O.A.R. On their eighth studio album, THE ROCKVILLE LP, the shape-shifting rock band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration. 

 

"This isn't about us going back to our musical roots per se," says lead singer Marc Roberge, who founded O.A.R. in 1996 with his Rockville, Md. high school classmates, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, and bassist Benj Gershman (saxophonist Jerry DePizzo joined while the group was at Ohio State University). "It's about us getting inspired by the place we came from. We'd drive the same roads, visit the old haunts, spend time with our people.  Rockville was the catalyst then, and it's the catalyst now." 

 

For the first time in a while, the band found that visiting their Maryland hometown gave them a sense of peace. For years, they had been pushing themselves to reach new levels of success, searching for their place in the world. Plus, turbulent times within their personal lives had led them to a slightly disconnected state. "I went home to Maryland many times while making this album and based these songs on all the familiar feelings that Rockville gave me," Roberge says. "I tried to focus in on the simple things that always made this band so creative and driven. For everyone in the band, this was a restart. We've been hanging out, enjoying life, letting things go…The whole album is about a reboot." 

 

That sense of renewal is evident on the first single, the deep, yearning "Peace." "As we were writing it, I felt the weight of three years lift off my shoulders," Roberge says. "We wrote it about getting back to that even playing field after you go through turbulent times.  It's about what I see people going through all around me, everyone deserves second, third, fourth chances." 

 

Roberge wrote "Peace" with Blair Daly and Nashville-based producer Nathan Chapman, best known for his work with Taylor Swift, after Roberge introduced himself to Chapman at an event in Los Angeles. The two got along so well that, in addition to "Peace," their writing sessions yielded three other songs: "Favorite Song," "Two Hands Up" and "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." Chapman produced "Favorite Song" and "Two Hands Up," while Gregg Wattenberg, who co-wrote O.A.R.'s No. 1 smash, "Shattered (Turn the Car Around)," produced "Peace." Chapman and Wattenberg shared production duties on "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." With those four tracks serving as the foundation for the album and as a boost to the band's confidence, Roberge produced the rest of the tracks on THE ROCKVILLE LP including a co-production with Jerry DePizzo on "The Element." "We felt like we were on to something with an overwhelming freedom to chase down some more songs," Roberge says.

 

THE ROCKVILLE LP, which was recorded in Nashville, Bethesda, Md., and Brooklyn, N.Y., features some of O.A.R.'s most diverse, intricate songs to date. Bold horn arrangements weave in and out of several of the tunes, including "Irish Rose" sequel and DePizzo showcase, the jangly, story song, "Caroline the Wrecking Ball," as well as the ambitious "The Architect," a song adored by longtime fans, but one O.A.R. had never committed to an album before. 

 

Pure joy and light-heartedness infuse album opener, the spiky infectious anthem, "Two Hands Up," and the irrepressible reggae-tinged "Favorite Song" in which Roberge cheerfully references dozens of song titles. "We were driving down roads in Nashville and Maryland feeling nostalgic harkening back to the days of endlessly flipping through the radio dial singing loudly to your favorite songs.  This song is an ode to the hit, to recognize the pure joy you can get from a song and some rolled down windows."

 

O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show — including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans. With each studio album, the band has endeavored to achieve that sense of immediacy. On THE ROCKVILLE LP, "it comes the closest," Roberge says."Every live band I know will always want nothing more than to carry their live performance onto the album.  It's an elusive thing to capture, so I'll never say we nailed it," Roberge says. "But I can guarantee we put that same live show energy and passion into each minute of THE ROCKVILLE LP and we can only hope the audience feels that."
