SUNSET STATION

 

Bill Pinkney’s Original Drifters

Venue: Club Madrid

Genre:

Date: Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $27.50, $32.50 and $37.50 plus tax and applicable fees for reserved seating

Artist Info: Music’s Drifters represent more than the story of a single group’s success.  Changes in personnel and management have led to the sprouting of many Drifters permutations, but Bill Pinkney used the name / mark THE ORIGINAL DRIFTERS® since the 1950s and his legacy continues. Organizer Clyde McPhatter, Bill Pinkney, Gerhart and Andrew Thrasher met while singing gospel.  When Atlantic Records rejected McPhatter’s first offering of singers, these men joined forces, signed with the company and established The Drifters in 1953. Thirty five years later in 1988, originals McPhatter, Pinkney, Gerhart Thrasher and four later Drifters were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which filmed Pinkney’s oral history in 2001 for its Legends Series. 

Pinkney was a Negro Baseball League sandlot pitcher, a World War II Presidential Citation recipient with five Bronze Stars, a Rhythm & Blues Foundation Pioneer Award recipient, a member of the United Group Harmony Hall of Fame, Vocal Group Hall of Fame, Beach Music Hall of Fame and a Gospel Hall of Fame Stellar Award recipient.

Boulder Blues

Tinsley Ellis

Ticket Prices: $5 cover at the door

Artist Info: Tinsley Ellis wears his Southern roots proudly. Born in Atlanta in 1957, he grew up in southern Florida and first played guitar at age eight. He found the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, The Animals, Cream, and The Rolling Stones. In 1981, along with veteran blues singer and harpist Chicago Bob Nelson, Tinsley formed The Heartfixers, a group that would become Atlanta’s top-drawing blues band. After releasing three albums with the band, Ellis set out on a solo career and soon signed with Records, where he released the hit album Georgia Blue. Before long, Alligator arranged to reissue his previous albums Cool On It and Tore Up, thus exposing Tinsley’s blistering earlier music to a growing fan base. Tinsley’s subsequent releases, 1989’s Fanning The Flames, 1992’s Trouble Time, 1994’s Storm Warning and 1997’s Fire It Up  further expanded the guitarist’s hero status. His success continued in the 2000s with the albums Kingpin, Moment of Truth and 2009’s Speak No Evil.

TEXAS STATION

 

Peabo Bryson

Venue: Dallas Events Center

Genre: R&B

Date: Friday, February 2, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $20, $25, $40 and $50 plus tax and applicable fees

Artist Info: Peabo Bryson has established a career as one of the premier male vocalists in contemporary music of the last quarter century. Possessing a beautifully rich, almost operatic voice, this two-time Grammy Award-winner has survived and prospered despite the passage of time and changes in popular musical trends. With 20 albums to his credit, Peabo Bryson has enjoyed an unprecedented, across-the-board level of international success, Bryson has the distinction of being the first artist in music history to have separate records topping four different charts.

 

With each move in his career, applause for Bryson became louder. New York Times music critic Jon Pareles called Bryson the “Pavarotti of soul singers”. His duets with Natalie Cole – “What You Won’t Do for Love” – and Roberta Flack – “Tonight, I Celebrate My Love,” a Top 15 pop smash – had earned Bryson the tag “King of Balladeers.” With “If Ever You’re in My Arms Again,” which landed in the Number 10 spot on the pop charts, he scored another crossover hit and solidified his mainstream audience. Both “Tonight” and “If” went to Number One on the adult contemporary charts. A return to Capitol in 1989 for the album “All My Love” earned him his first R&B #1 single with a remake of the late Al Wilson’s “Show & Tell” (a song he proudly keeps the torch lit for in all of his shows). He hit the R&B chart-top a second time with the smash “Can You Stop The Rain“, the title track of his R&B chart-topping first of two albums for Columbia Records. The single won Bryson a 1991 Grammy nomination for best R&B vocal performance by a male, as did “Lost in the Night” in 1992.

 

But it was two songs for Disney animated films that earned Peabo his two Grammys. The first was 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast” with international pop singer Celine Dion which was a Number One pop hit. The very next year, Peabo struck gold again receiving another Grammy for “A Whole New World (Aladdin’s Theme)” from Aladdin which he performed with Regina Belle. Both “Beauty and the Beast” (1991) and “A Whole New World” (1992) won Oscars for “Best Song”. Since these milestones, he has been even more sought after as a guest vocalist and duet partner, resulting in his collaborations with Tony Award-winner Lea Salonga on “We Kiss in the Shadows” (#1 on the Classical Crossover chart from a new recording of “The King and I” score), Melissa Manchester’s “Lovers After All”, and Kenny G’s “By The Time This Night is Over” (from the chart topping Contemporary Jazz CD, “Breathless”), which enjoyed a three month run on the Hot 100 in 1993. In June of 1993, Bryson sold out seven consecutive shows at Radio City Music Hall.
