Huey Lewis and The News
Huey Lewis and The News
Huey Lewis and The News are truly one of America’s great rock & roll bands. As they enter their 36th year together, their contagious brand of music has outlasted countless trends, and is as fresh today as ever.
Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, they continue to thrill audiences worldwide, selling over 20 million albums in the process, earning them the right to mark their place on the pop history map.

These Grammy Award winners have written and performed such classic
Top Ten Hits as “Heart of Rock & Roll”, “Stuck With You”, “I Want A New Drug”, “If This Is It”, “Hip To Be Square” “Do You Believe In Love” and “Workin’ For A Livin”. The group also wrote and performed “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” for the hit film Back To The Future. “The Power of Love”, nominated for an Academy Award, went to #1 on Billboard’s singles chart, and was a smash hit worldwide.

As great a recording career as the band has had, there is something extra special about a Huey Lewis & The News live show. They incorporate a variety of musical influences including R&B and soul to create their own unique sound. Frontman Huey Lewis' unmistakable voice has a rich, textured quality that lends itself well to not just their hits, but also to the variety of other songs featured in the show. Lewis also brings some bluesy tones to the performance when he breaks out into his harmonica solos. One of the highlights of the show is their
a cappella rendition of early rock n’ roll classics such as “It’s Alright”, “Little Bitty Pretty One” and “Sixty Minute Man”.

Huey Lewis & The News are: Huey Lewis (vocals and harmonica),
Johnny Colla (saxophone, guitar and vocals), Bill Gibson (drums, percussion and vocals), Sean Hopper (keyboards and vocals), Stef Burns (guitars and vocals) and John Pierce (bass). The live show features their long time horn section of San Francisco bay area luminaries: Rob Sudduth (tenor saxophone), Marvin McFadden (trumpet), and Johnnie Bamont (baritone saxophone).

Huey Lewis & The News have a love of music that comes through in
everything they do. Be it their albums, their live performances, or the way theyinteract with their fans, they are a band with “Heart and Soul”.

Jim Brunberg and Jeff Pehrson met in a San Francisco cafe 23 years ago and almost immediately fell into a musical relationship. That connection has been responsible for 12 albums of original music, thousands upon thousands of miles on the road, a handful of awards, several ill-fated record deals and two houses built of broken B strings. The Box Set Duo has been entertaining audiences these many years with their powerful songs, brought to
life by inspired guitar interplay and vocal harmonies that warm the senses. The subject matter, as with the finest folk music, ranges from politics to relationships and everything in between,
all delivered with a heart and wit that has brought rave reviews. Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls once described them as "a cross between the Grateful Dead and The Smothers Brothers".
Though Jim and Jeff have both been busy pursuing other endeavors the last few years, (Jim owns and operates his own music venue, Mississippi Studios in Portland, Oregon and Jeff is
a member of Bob Weir and Phil Lesh's band, Furthur), Box Set continues to play to their dedicated following. A longtime Bay Area favorite, the Box Set Duo will engage your hearts, bust your sides and leave you with a song on your mind.
