Boz Scaggs 2015

Boz Scaggs

Boz Scaggs is both a musical seeker and a man of sizable talent as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. His explorations in blues and R&B, Rock and Jazz have produced lasting work and a career that has brought with it acclaim, a loyal following, and an enduring respect among musicians.

Well known for his 1975 multi-platinum album Silk Degrees - which featured hits like “Lowdown,” which won the Grammy Award for “Best R&B Song”, “Lido Shuffle,” “What Can I Say” and the ballad “We’re All Alone,” Boz has had an extensive and distinctive career and he continues to prove himself as one of music’s most creative and original artists. With MEMPHIS, his first studio album in five years, Scaggs looks back musically and biographically. (His father and grandparents are from Memphis, as is his wife.) “I had been thinking about a record that involved going back into my past and finding songs that match my style and my voice,” Scaggs says. With producer Steve Jordan and a crack band he puts a distinctive touch on classics like “Rainy Night in Georgia,” “Corinna Corinna,” and “Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl,” as well as on a couple of originals. Thirteen tracks were recorded in three days at the city’s landmark Royal Studios, where the late Willie Mitchell produced so many of Al Green’s and Anne Peebles’ legendary albums.

Raised in Texas with an abiding respect for a wide spectrum of American roots music, Scaggs has combined rock, jazz, R&B and blues to create a trademark sound. Curiosity along with yearning for a Blues and R&B band brought Boz to San Francisco in 1967. After a stint with fellow Texan, Steve Miller, on several albums, he signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records and debuted with Boz Scaggs, produced by friend and Rolling Stone founder, Jann Wenner. That record featured the renowned Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, Duane Allman and the slow-burn-to-high-heat track, “Loan Me a Dime.” Critical acclaim followed, as did a long-term relationship with Columbia Records. Boz would make seven records for Columbia including Moments, Boz Scaggs and Band, My Time, and Slow Dancer, and featured songs such as “We Were Always Sweethearts,” “Dinah Flo,” “You Make It So Hard,” and “Slow Dancer.”

Then came Silk Degrees and Boz was raised to rock star stays during a time when singer/songwriters ruled the airwaves. Following Silk Degrees was Down Two Then Left, Middle Man and Hits, a compilation that featured the as-yet-unrecorded “Miss Sun” and the song from the motion picture Urban Cowboy, “Look What You’ve Done To Me.”

Scaggs sat out most of the Eighties, touring sporadically and releasing one album in 1987, Other Roads. “In 1980, I decided to take a hiatus from the music business. I had intended it to be a six-month break, but I found when I got away from it that I wasn’t ready to jump back in. I had family matters to attend to. And at the bottom of it all, I just didn’t have any music in me, no creative urge at all. Music had become a routine.”

In addition to touring extensively with his own band, Scaggs continues to work with Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald as The Dukes of September, most recently a playing a 47-city tour to rave reviews, performing their own material along with R&B and Soul classics. Within that collaboration, throughout his career and especially evident in MEMPHIS, Scaggs’ unique voice and trademark sound make plain his abiding respect for a wide spectrum of American roots music.

The Graduate

Released at the end of 1967, The Graduate is one of the most iconic films coming from the 60’s “Hollywood New Wave” genre. Mike Nichols directed this landmark hit , his second feature film after Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Nichols matched the story's satire of suffocating middle-class shallowness. Using odd angles, jittery editing, and evocative widescreen photography, Nichols welded a hip New Wave style and a generation-gap theme to a fairly traditional screwball comedy script by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham from Charles Webb's novel.

Dustin Hoffman plays Benjamin Braddock, promising academic and track star, who returns to Los Angeles after graduation. At a party thrown by his parents, he his lured by old family friend Mrs. Robinson into taking her home. He first flees from her advances, but shortly thereafter begins an affair with her. Later on, Ben's unwitting parents goad him into taking the Robinson's daughter, Elaine, on a date. Ben falls in love with Elaine, which transforms Mrs. Robinson into a vindictive adversary.

Nichols decision to cast Hoffman in the leading role, opened the door for unconventional leading men throughout the 1970s. With a pop-song score written by Paul Simon and performed by Simon & Garfunkel bolstering its contemporary appeal, The Graduate opened to rave reviews and surpassed all commercial expectations. It became the top-grossing film of 1968 and was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Actor, and Actress, with Nichols winning Best Director.

Together with Bonnie and Clyde, it stands as one of the most influential films of the late '60s, -- The Graduate's coming-of-age story is indeed one for the ages.

Eddie Izzard: Force Majeure

EDDIE IZZARD: Force Majeure

“The greatest British standup comedian of his generation” The London Sunday Times

Eddie Izzard – the man who turned talking ‘Bollocks’ into an art form…..

He’s sold out Madison Square Garden and became the first stand-up comedian to play a solo show at the Hollywood Bowl. He takes ideas and situations and extrapolates them into bizarre tangential, absurd, and surreal comic narratives - topics that skip from Darth Vader and Greek mythology to human sacrifice and chaos theory.

Eddie Izzard Force Majeure is a comic force to be reckoned with.

Sheer Comic Genius. His humor reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with flashes of Robin Williams’ manic energy and a sophisticated silliness that is entirely his own. He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generation.” – The New York Times

“He walks onstage to the roaring tumult usually reserved for rock stars and soon has the audience busting a gut about the Spanish Inquisition and chaos theory. Such is the phenomenon of Eddie Izzard, funniest man, in, well, pretty much all of the known universe.” – The LA Times

“He has the acid snap of a white Richard Pryor and John Cleese calls him the funniest man in England and the “Lost Python.” No surprise: Izzard’s whimsical, sophisticated and often bizarre monologues do delve deeply into Monty-Python-like absurdity.” Toronto Star

Todd Rundgren

Todd Rundgren - a prolific musical experimenter, premier league pop craftsman, tireless producer, runt, wizard and true star - brings his new tour GLOBAL to the Fox stage. This long-awaited musical event will be a contemporary fusion of styles - rock, soul and electronica - continuing the tradition of boundary-breaking works from this visionary genius. The finely crafted songs on GLOBAL (Rundgren’s 25th solo studio album releasing April 7th in the US) once again push the creative envelope. Todd promises the stage production will be unlike anything he has mounted in the past: and while the singer/guitarist is keeping the details under wraps, he is promising that the show will be a “video and lighting spectacle to behold.”

As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and interactive artist, Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music.

Among his myriad hits are "Hello It's Me,”"I Saw the Light, "Can We Still be Friends,” "We Gotta Get You A Woman,” "Open My Eyes,” and "Bang the Drum.” Rundgren's prolific producer's discography includes such classics as Skylarking by XTC, We're an American Band by Grand Funk Railroad, War Babies by Hall & Oates, Wave by Patti Smith and Meat Loaf's auspicious debut Bat Out of Hell.

Sealing his reputation as rock's renaissance man, Rundgren composed all the music and lyrics for Joe Papp's 1989 Off-Broadway production of Joe Orton's “Up Against It” (the screenplay commissioned by The Beatles for what was meant to have been their third motion picture), as well as the score for “Dumb And Dumber” and a number of television series, including “Pee Wee'sPlayhouse” and “Crime Story”. He is also internationally acknowledged as the Godfather of the marriage of music and multimedia.

During the tour, on April 18, 2015, Todd will be performing at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, as part of Todd’s Spirit of Harmony Foundation's Symposium on the Moral Imperative of Music Education (for more information about the organization, visit www.spiritofharmony.org).

Zeppelin USA

Zeppelin USA General Admission

Los Amigos Del Zorro is pleased to bring you, Zeppelin USA (ZUSA). Celebrating the music of Led Zeppelin, ZUSA is a 4-piece, non-costumed band that delivers the best of the Led Zeppelin studio sound and live concert performances. The proceeds from the ZUSA event will benefit University of Arizona’s Steele Children’s Research Center.

"As someone who worked with Zeppelin back in the day of Atlantic Records, all I can say is, you close your eyes at a Zeppelin USA show, and you think...you're there." -Jerry Greenberg, former chairman of Atlantic Records

ZUSA is all about the music and spirit of Led Zeppelin. When the members of ZUSA formed, a clear decision had to be made. They could have easily donned the blonde "Robert Plant" wig, the dragon suit a la Jimmy Page, the 3 rings on the kick drum, etc. as so many other Zep tributes have done. But they knew that in order to set themselves apart from the pack they had to choose a different path. To stand on the music only, they knew they were going to be judged hard in that respect. And so, they focus on getting the right tones, vocal inflections, borrowing a little from the studio versions here, the live versions there...much attention is spent on delivering a true sonic Zep experience.

But they also believe in entertainment. The members of ZUSA are veteran musicians who've performed for tens of thousands of people. This is, after all, show business, and they go out of their way to engage and entertain their audience, no matter the size. Their larger venue shows are complete productions with huge video screens, low fog, lasers, state of the art lighting, and theatrics.

A Zeppelin USA show captures the sound and spirit of the greatest rock band of all time, and promises to either introduce or remind fans of just how great the mighty Zep will always be.

Los Amigos Del Zorro was formed as an underwriting group, made up of local business professionals, to develop an annual event to raise money and awareness.

             Corporate VIP

o             Includes Orchestra Seat, pre-performance hor d’eouvres, and three drink tickets
