09/01 Sat 8:30 JOHN HALL; also special guest Richard Barone $20 +$2 processing
Now that John Hall has finished serving two terms as the Congressman from New York's 19th District, John is writing songs again, performing solo and with Orleans, and continuing with his environmental activism. The average music fan may associate John Hall with his blockbuster Orleans hits like Still The One and Dance With Me, but those familiar with him know his more eclectic work. He wrote for Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, The Doobie Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, Ricky Skaggs and James Taylor. John has also played guitar solos on records by Taj Mahal, Carly Simon and Little Feat. As one of the organizers of the historic No Nukes concerts in 1979, he was among the performers featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine with co-producers Graham Nash, Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt.
Richard Barone is an acclaimed recording artist, performer, producer and author. Since his beginnings on radio at age seven as "The Littlest DJ" and later fronting indie-pop icons The Bongos, Barone has produced countless studio recordings and has collaborated with artists in every musical genre -- from Lou Reed and Moby to Liza Minnelli, Tiny Tim and most recently, Pete Seeger. As musical and theatrical director, he has scored shows and staged all-star concert events at such venues as Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. His memoir FRONTMAN: Surviving the Rock Star Myth was published by Hal Leonard Books and performed as a Musical Reading at Carnegie Hall. His most recent studio album, Glow, was produced by Tony Visconti. A deluxe, 25th Anniversary Edition of his first solo album, Cool Blue Halo is set for release as a multi-disc boxed set in Fall, 2012. Barone lives in Greenwich Village, NYC, where he was recently appointed to the Board of Advisors for Anthology Film Archives and as a Professor at New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.
