ZZ Top Live at Silver Creek Event Center

Four Winds Casino
11111 Wilson
New Buffalo, MI 49117
Contact Name: Four Winds Casino
8664946371

Event Date:09/22/2017

Event Description:ZZ Top a/k/a "That Little Ol' Band From Texas," lays claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact. In 2004, the trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, and Frank Beard have been together for more than 45 years on the road and in the studio. Their third album, 1973's Tres Hombres, catapulted them to national attention with the hit "La Grange," still one of the band's signature pieces today. Their next hit was "Tush," released in 1975. Billy, Dusty and Frank became icons in videos that highlighted three smash singles: "Gimme All Your Lovin', "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Legs." As a touring unit, they've been without peer over the years, having performed before millions of fans through North America on numerous epochal tours as well as overseas. Their iconography – beards, cars, girls and that magic keychain – transcend all bounds of geography and language. Last year saw the release of ZZ Top's Live! Greatest Hits From Around The World album, consisting of 15 songs recorded live in 13 cities across three continents. ZZ Top's music is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100% Texas American in derivation.

Event Description:Two of the biggest American 1960’s hit makers live in concert! --- With a staggering 18 charted hits and five Top 10 records, few bands ever reached the heights of JAY & THE AMERICANS. The group has been experiencing resurgence in their popularity after re-forming with three original members and returning to stages all over the country. "This Magic Moment," "Only in America," "Cara Mia," "Come a Little Bit Closer," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Let's Lock the Door," "Walkin' in the Rain," and more will be faithfully re-created, accompanied by a live rhythm section and brass section. GARY LEWIS & THE PLAYBOYS co-headline with equally impressive credentials of 8 gold singles, 4 gold albums, and a string of monster hits including “This Diamond Ring,” “She’s Just My Style,” “Count Me In,” “Everybody Loves a Clown,” and the list goes on. The band also made the transition to the silver screen, having appeared in several movies of the era. (It didn’t hurt that Gary’s father is comedy legend Jerry Lewis.) Don’t miss this all-American rock-and-roll reunion with the artists who carried the American flag through the British Invasion and dominated the charts during the greatest era of American music ever - the sixties! Presented by Praia Entertainment Group.

During that period Bill also recorded the chart-topping duet with Jennifer Warnes, The Time of My Life, for the movie Dirty Dancing. It went on to sell over 32 million copies worldwide. Medley has also sung on the soundtracks or performed the theme songs for 33 movies and TV shows and, in 2014, released his memoir, The Time of My Life. Bucky Heard is an Alabama native and Auburn University alum. His reputation as a gutsy rock and roll singer, with an incredible vocal range, has garnered much critical praise and a legion of fans. He's shared the concert stage with legends like Andy Williams and Glen Campbell.

Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating around in the late '90s. No flashy re-hasher of classic blues licks, even at that early age Lang was a fullblown artist with a style of his own. Also, setting Lang apart from the wunderkind crowd was a 15-yearold voice that sounded like a weathered soul shouter. Actual life experience was yet to come, and has been subsequently chronicled in a series of five albums. His latest album, Signs, will release September 8.
