LoisPalooza: Live Peace in Seattle
Seattle, WA, September 13, 2017 Forty-eight years ago, Alan White got a phone call from John Lennon that would change his lifeand promptly hung up on him. The rest, so the story goes, is rock and roll history; rehearsals on the flight from London to Toronto, a very nervous Lennon backstage, and a crazy eight-song set that included tunes from Carl Perkins and The Beatles. This was the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival, and it happened 48 years ago todaySeptember 13, 1969. The show was recorded and released as Live Peace In Toronto, in December 1969.

"The phone rang and there was a guy who said, Alan, this is John Lennon. I saw you playing at the club the other night. Youre a great drummer. Do you want a gig? I thought it was a friend of mine playing a joke and I put the phone down. Five minutes later, I get another call back. The same person. And it was John Lennon."
--Alan White

To commemorate the 1969 showthe first ever by Lennons Plastic Ono Band (which also included Klaus Voorman, Eric Clapton and Yoko Ono), Alan White has assembled members of White and world-class Beatles tribute Apple Jam to recreate the show as it was performed.  Also appearing will be violinist-extraordinaire, Mr. Geoffrey Castle.

Dubbed LoisPalooza: Live Peace In Seattle, the October 5 show will be a fundraiser for Seattle-area photographers and longtime friends of White; Lois and Jerry Levin.  Lois was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, and the couple has had many challenges battling Lois illness while trying to keep their photography business going.

Says White, Jerry and Lois have been great friends for many years.  They have photographed me in both my personal life and professional career and have given their time selflessly for many charitable causes around Seattle.  Its an honor to be able to give back to them.

In addition to songs from the 1969 show, fans can expect to hear more John Lennon songs as well as selected works from the Yes catalog, with whom White has been drumming since 1972.
