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”.

Jamie Kent
A fresh singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fanbase, artist Jamie Kent's future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern rock artists like Ray Lamontagne and Kings of Leon as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, Kent's perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Since the release of his debut LP in 2011, the singer-songwriter has been collaborating with his band, Jamie Kent & The Options, to cultivate a sound with a strong rock and Americana influence. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Wood Brothers, Marc Broussard, Ellis Paul, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. Additionally, he has received international radio play on over 120 stations (including BBC Radio), had his single "Changes"licensed by The Boston Red Sox, and was the recipient of a 2013 ASCAP Plus Award for his songwriting. His new EP, titled Embers & Ashes, features five songs that showcase a deeper sense of confidence as a songwriter, and as a singer. It's first single, "Broke, Not Broken" was recently premiered on RollingStone.com.
