Hailing from Australia, Little River Band claimed their place as one of the greatest vocal bands of the 70’s and 80’s with hits such as “Reminiscing,” “Lonesome Loser,” “The Night Owls,” and “Take it Easy on Me.” They will be performing with Ambrosia and Player on Friday, January 8, 2016.
“We are thrilled to have Little River Band play our venue,” said Michelle Gabriel, Director of Programming and Operations at CCC. “I am looking forward to hearing all the hits and meeting Wayne Nelson, who has been with the band for 37 years.”
The King of Romance, Engelbert Humperdinck is still wooing and wowing crowds and no doubt there will be a fair share of swooning happening on Sunday, January 10 when the legendary British star takes the stage.
With 24 Platinum and 63 Gold records to his credit, the singer is still going strong, recently releasing his latest CD, “Runaway Country.”
“Besides the hit records, the killer charisma and the inimitable style, Engelbert has truly been a loyal supporter to so many in the industry,” explained Gabriel. “Many people do not know that he had both Jimi Hendrix and The Carpenters open for him at the dawn of their careers.”
Sea of JazzFest, a signature event for The Amp, returns on Saturday, January 16 with a lineup of world-class jazz icons including Randy Brecker, Terell Stafford, Dick Oatts, Shelly Berg, Ken Peplowski and more.
