Huey Lewis and The News
Huey Lewis and The News
2013 marks the 30th anniversary of one the most influential and celebrated albums in pop / rock history. Peaking at #1 on the Billboard Charts, selling over 10 million copies worldwide, a Grammy Award, and a Diamond Award in Canada, “Sports” is the anthem of a generation.
Over half of the album’s songs (“The Heart of Rock & Roll”, “Heart & Soul”, “I Want a New Drug”, “Walking on a Thin Line”, “If This Is It”) were huge hit singles. They have memorable hooks, and an economical precision.

“Sports” has struck a chord with audiences of all ages and persuasions. So many people have special memories associated with this unique collection of songs. Huey Lewis and the News are releasing a special digitally re-mastered 30th Anniversary edition of the album, with live bonus tracks.

In 2013 Huey Lewis and the News are commemorating the milestone with their “Sports” 30th Anniversary World Tour. Fans will hear the band perform the songs from “Sports”, plus many other hits and surprises. Huey Lewis and the News are: Huey Lewis (vocals and harmonic), Johnny Colla (saxophone, guitar and vocals), Bill Gibson (drums, percussion and vocals), Sean Hopper (keyboards and vocals), Stef Burns (guitars and vocals), John Pierce (bass), Marvin McFadden (trumpet), Rob Sudduth (tenor saxophone), Johnnie Bamont (baritone saxophone).

“Masterful practitioners of an eclectic pop-rock that blends the rich harmonies of California rock and the metronomically plucked beat of new wave, with strong rhythm and blues influences, into an ingratiating brew.” - New York Times

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.
