Boz Scaggs, the Grammy Award-winning vocalist, platinum-selling legend, guitarist and songwriter takes the stage on Wednesday, November 4 at 7:30 PM. Scaggs gained fame in the 1960s as a guitarist and one-time lead singer with the Steve Miller Band, and in the 1970s with several solo Top 20 hit singles in the United States. In 1976, Scaggs achieved multi-platinum success with Silk Degrees, which featured the hits “Lowdown," "Lido Shuffle,” and "What Can I Say." His popularity continues into the current decades with late-period high point albums like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001). Boz Scaggs’ most recent album, A Fool to Care, which Q Magazine called “…some of the best music of his career. Every track is a jewel of unforced artistry in America’s R&B tradition” was released in March 2015 and reached #1 on the Billboard blues album chart.
“I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” Scaggs says about his spellbinding new album, A Fool to Care. “It’s like I’m just going wherever I want to go with it.” The music legend and his band will perform a full evening of Scaggs' hits ranging from “Lowdown” and “Lido Shuffle,” to cuts from his new album, A Fool to Care.
