Venue: The Pearl

Genre: Latin Pop

Date:  Saturday, November 25, 2017 at 9 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $60, $80, $110 and $160 plus applicable fees for reserved seating

Artist Info: Ana Gabriel, born Maria Guadalupe Araujo Yong, is a Mexican singer and songwriter from Guamuchil, Mexico. Throughout her long and prestigious career Ana Gabriel has released over 30 albums in different genres including Latin Pop, Ranchero and Banda, and sold over 35 million copies worldwide. Her work has also earned her numerous accolades and awards including the OTI Festival, the Grammy, Latin Grammy Nominations, ASCAP, Premios Lo Nuestro and Billboard Awards among others and most recently the Lifetime Achievement Award from Hispanic Heritage Foundation for her musical trajectory and her invaluable input to the Arts Community.

 

Her career started on September 15, 1974, in Tijuana, BC – Mexico. Her first big opportunity with a multinational record company came on July 4, 1984, when she signed with Sony Music (then CBS). Her sultry, sensual and raspy voice was what earned her that unique style among her peers. 

 

In 1984 her first studio album “Un Estilo”, comes out, and from then on, Ana Gabriel has released almost one album per year including three live ones. A versatile singer, Ana Gabriel has showcased her talent as an interpreter of many different musical styles, from Ballad to Lambada, Mariachi and Pop music. She has also horned her skills as a songwriter and producer of a vast majority of her records. The unique blend of styles and genres has reflected in a lot of her songs, and her lyrics are usually described as strong, powerful and filled with emotion. 

 

Ana Gabriel has scored many number one hits along her career, but she has also participated in important duets alongside well renowned names such as Vicente Fernandez, Vikki Carr, Rocio Jurado, Jose Luis Perales, Jose Feliciano, Juan Gabriel and Placido Domingo among many others.

 

To shine with her own light and with her unique style of interpreting and “saying” is what has won the respect and admiration of the audiences. Since then Ana Gabriel has not had to worry about anything more than to continue making her albums with great love and fervent dedication. In each and every one of her projects she leaves part of herself as an interpreter and composer, with that raspy voice that identifies her so well with her audience and that arouses interest immediately among those who listen to her for the first time.

Venue: Rocks Lounge

Genre: Comedy

Ticket Prices: $45 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission

Artist Info: Rudner moved to New York at the age of 15 to dance on Broadway. She appeared in several Broadway musicals, including the legendary original productions of “Follies” and “Mack and Mabel.” It was while she was appearing in “Annie” on Broadway that Rita began exploring the comedy clubs of Manhattan. She applied the same learning techniques she had acquired as a dancer to comedy, spending hours studying recordings by Jack Benny and Woody Allen and analyzing comedy construction.

 

She developed her trademark epigrammatic style and took a full-time leap form chorus lines to punch lines in the early 1980s. During this time, Rudner was a frequent guest on both “Late Night With David Letterman” and the “Tonight Show.” Her first solo HBO special, “Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand,” was nominated for several awards, as was her English BBC television show which later appeared on A&E. Rita’s two one-hour specials for HBO, “Born to Be Mild” and “Married Without Children,” were ratings standouts and many viewers liked her dresses. She’s written five books, including the best-selling “Naked Beneath My Clothes,” “I Still Have It…I Just Can’t Remember Where I Put It” and “Rita Rudner’s Guide to Men.”

 

Recently, Rita recorded her first stand up TV special for over a decade. “Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas” for PBS, as well as a radio series for the BBC. Her first love, however, remains stand-up comedy and she still performs across America.

Artist Info: Andre Dice Clay is proud to be one of America's most controversial and outrageous comics. When he released his debut album, Dice, the parental advisory label simply read “Warning: This album is offensive.” Clay’s rise to fame was nothing less than meteoric; he became the first comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row and was the only performer ever “Banned For Life from MTV.”

 

Over the last few years, Clay’s career has experienced a resurgence, most notably when he starred to great critical acclaim alongside Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, his recurring role on the final season of Entourage and Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl. His other notable TV credit is The Celebrity Apprentice, where he is proud to have been the first celebrity thrown off the show.

 

Clay has released numerous best-selling DVDs (No Apologies and Dice Rules!) and a string of multi-gold and platinum selling CDs (The Day The Laughter Died and Face Down, Ass Up). Dice also starred in several one-hour HBO and Showtime stand-up specials including: The Diceman Cometh and Indestructible. In 2015, Simon & Schuster published Clay’s brutally honesty autobiography “The Filthy Truth.”  This coming summer, you can see Andrew Dice Clay on Sunday nights in the second season of his Showtime series, Dice. And come 2018, you'll be seeing him in his next big film, A Star Is Born.

His deep familiarity with blues tradition allows him to bust the genre wide open, adding new sounds, colors and textures, all delivered with a revival tent preacher's fervor and a natural storyteller's charisma. Since the 2014 release of his Alligator Records debut, Don't Call No Ambulance, Birchwood's meteoric rise from playing small Florida clubs to headlining international festival stages is nothing short of phenomenal, as he continues to set the contemporary blues world on fire. The album received the Blues Music Award and Living Blues Critics' Award for Best Debut Album Of 2014, and he won the 2015 Blues Blast Rising Star Award.

Artist Info: Born in Redding, CA in 1950, Roy Rogers began playing guitar at 12 years of age. He discovered the great blues players early on, especially when his older brother brought home an album by Robert Johnson. Thus began his love of the blues, slide guitar in particular, which had an immediate effect on Roy, who was indeed named after the “King of the Cowboys.” Through the years, he developed a distinctive style of playing slide guitar that not only emerged, but one that is instantly recognizable. In 1985, he released his first solo album, Chops Not Chaps, which received widespread radio play and was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award.  In 1987, he released his sophomore album Slidewinder, which includes fantastic duets with Hooker and New Orleans piano great Allen Toussaint.

Artist Info: By the time Edgar Winter left his hometown of Beaumont, Texas in the 1960s, he was already technically proficient in every aspect of music. A child prodigy who achieved international success early on, Edgar has found an audience in every major entertainment medium–music, film and television. A prolific writer, Edgar's music encompasses many different genres, including rock, jazz, blues, and pop. From his critically-acclaimed 1970 debut release, Entrance, he has demonstrated his unique style and ability to cross the genre lines and do the unexpected. His early recording of “Tobacco Road” is a powerful, emotionally-devastating masterpiece that propelled him into the national spotlight. Edgar followed Entrance with two hit albums backed by his group White Trash, a group originally comprised of musicians from Texas and Louisiana. White Trash enjoyed huge success, both with the 1971 release of the studio album, Edgar Winter's White Trash, and with 1972's follow-up live gold album, Roadwork.

With more than 20 albums and numerous collaborative efforts to his credit, Edgar Winter has not been satisfied to ride the wave of popular music stardom. Major national television and radio campaigns have relied on Edgar’s music to advertise their products. Edgar has also made frequent television appearances, both to promote his music, and to give his opinions on everything from Politically Incorrect to a commercial with George Hamilton for Miller Lite beer. His live shows consistently receive rave reviews. He continues to thrill audiences with his live performances, always remaining on the cutting edge of music and style. Edgar is now at the very top of his game, and his future looks even brighter than his past.

Boulder Blues

Nikki Hill

Venue: The Railhead

Genre: Blues

Ticket Prices: $5 cover at the door

Artist Info: Nikki Hill and her band have been touring extensively following the independent 2015 release “Heavy Hearts Hard Fists” and debut album Here’s Nikki Hill, released in 2013. With a no-filter energy and explosive live show, they deliver a sound that will make you believe in rock ‘n’ roll again. Nikki’s unique voice—with raw rock and soul dynamics mixed with the strength, passion, and honesty of blues shouters of the past—steers the driving guitar and a tight rhythm section to create a breath of fresh air with their fast forward approach to American roots music.

 

Nikki Hill’s self-titled, independently released EP in June of 2012 created a heavy and sudden international underground buzz that the band has traveled with across America and overseas to Europe and Australia. Those four tunes penned by Hill, combined with memorable live performances, have drawn a wide range of people from every avenue and musical taste to their shows. Her enthusiasm for music is simply contagious. One club advertisement will call Nikki “The Southern Fireball”, “the New Soul Sensation”, “amazing R&B Shouter”, and even “the new Queen of Rock n’ Roll”.
