Upcoming Events   

B.B. King

Blues
For more than half a century, Riley B. King, better known as B.B. King, has defined the blues for a worldwide audience. He worked at WDIA as a singer and disc jockey, gaining the nickname Beale Street Blues Boy, which was later shortened to Blues Boy and finally to B.B. Since he started recording in the 1940s, he has released over 50 albums, many of them beloved classics, and he made famous the Gibson ES-355 guitar, calling his own 'Lucille.' A new documentary on the legendary bluesman, 'BB King: The Life of Riley,' narrated by Morgan Freeman, made its debut overseas in mid-October 2012 and should make its way to the U.S. soon.

Gipsy Kings
With Ole Noys
World, Latin/Salsa, Pop
The best-selling French band in history, the Gipsy Kings is among the best-known non-English speaking groups in the U.S. (the band’s language is the Gypsy dialect of gitane). Since the 1987 release of the international hit single 'Bamboleo,' the Gipsy Kings have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide—more than four million in the United States alone. The band’s vigorous guitar work and passionate vocals are the trademarks of an indigenous musical tradition known as “rumba flamenca.” This group of actual French Gypsies gained popularity in the late '80s blending exotica with familiar European middle-of-the-road sounds. The Gipsy Kings have provided a steady stream of hits to Billboard’s world music, Latin, and pop charts. The ensemble’s music has been used in numerous motion pictures, including Peter Weir’s 'Fearless' and Joel and Ethan Coen’s 'The Big Lebowski.'

Martin Sexton
With Paper Bird
Folk, Blues, R&B/Soul, Jazz, Rock
With incredible charisma and amazing stage presence, singer-songwriter Martin Sexton presents an original fusion of blues, soul, jazz, folk and rock. A child of the '80s but at heart a troubadour akin to the independent voices of the '60s and '70s, the Syracuse, NY native is currently touring to support his most recent EP, 'Fall Like Rain,' about which he comments, "In a down economy, we're getting new music to people for the price of a soy latte."
