Since 2016, brothers Zachary and Dylan Zmed along with their partner and drummer Burleigh Drummond, have celebrated the pivotal music and history of The Everly Brothers legacy with enthusiastic crowds all across the US and over seas in prestigious venues.
Adrian Legg will perform Saturday, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. at Hinman Auditorium. Globally acclaimed by critics and fans alike for his unique acoustic and electric ﬁngerstyle guitar playing, Adrian Legg masterfully blends diverse musical styles, inﬂuences and inspirations to create a distinctive sound all his own. With multiple awards and accolades spanning four decades, Legg has been heralded as a “guitarist of astonishing virtuosity, (whose) imagination and melodic invention seem unbounded,” (Q magazine); “ridiculously talented,” (Music Week) and “simply the best acoustic guitar player I’ve ever heard.”(guitar icon Joe Satriani). Often, he plays a piece entirely in arpeggios (similar to a classical guitar style) and extensively uses altered tunings and capos to create his signature sound.
Iron Butterfly will hit the stage at Hinman Auditorium on Friday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. The Los Angeles music climate of the late 1960s and 1970s was characterized by the heavy sounds and sentiments that reflected the revolutionary attitudes of the generation. Bursting onto that scene was Iron Butterfly, whose sound not only epitomized the hard attitudes of the youth with its heavy drumming and bass lines, but also embraced more delicate aspirations through its intricate guitar and keyboard overlays. And now they are back touring the world.
The Steepwater Band will perform Saturday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. at Hinman Auditorium. You should already know these songs. If the old saying about talent equaling success were true, then The Steepwater Band would already be a household name, rubbing shoulders with Aerosmith, Bad Company and other like-minded travelers in our collective rock ‘n roll fantasy.
The Official Blues Brothers Revue is coming to Hinman Auditorium on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. There have been many imitators, but there is only one duo in North America sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues.
