02/15, Fri 8:30 ~ GRAYSON HUGH; with special guest KIKI ~ $20 +$2 processing

Internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter, blue-eyed soul legend and pianist Grayson Hugh is known for his global mega-hits (Talk It Over, Bring It All Back, How 'Bout Us) as well as his songs in blockbuster movies Thelma & Louise and Fried Green Tomatoes. Hugh has been wowing audiences and gathering loyal fans around the world for more than three decades. His 1988 debut album, Blind To Reason, went gold in the U.S. & overseas, and his follow-up release, Road To Freedom, was called one of the year's best albums by Billboard Magazine. His songs have been called "poetry set to music" and his voice has been compared to soul legends Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. His piano playing has been called "a veritable cyclone of soul, drawing its energy from such diverse regions as the swampland funk of Professor Longhair, the testifying soul of Ray Charles, with the rhythms of African drumming and American bluegrass thrown in the mix." Grayson performs with his wife, harmony singer Polly Messer, a former member of the swing band Eight To The Bar and the New York-based rockabilly band Eugene Chrysler. In 2010 Hugh released his long-awaited comeback album, An American Record.

Don't miss this chance to see this legendary singer/songwriter! In the words of one writer: "Grayson Hugh has been there and back again. His story -- our story -- has to be heard."

Kiriaki Bozas -- known by her stage name, KIKI -- is an American singer-songwriter from Poughkeepsie. Music has always taken the wheel for KIKI. Since the age of 8 she has been writing emotionally-moving songs imbued with romance and epic drama on the piano. Her first EP, entitled Teacher, was produced in 2009 with multi-Grammy award winning producer, Memo Gil, in Mexico City. Two songs were broadcasted on multiple national radio stations. The title song, Teacher, was listed in the Top Songs Of 2010 by Cold Spring Radio station. In addition, the International Singer Songwriter Association awarded KIKI with an honorable mention in their annual singer-songwriting contest.

KIKI's live performances have been marked by their down-to-earth and "human" quality. Listeners can easily identify with her music because it is inspired by personal experience and daily observations of every-day life. Her songwriting style has been compared to Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Regina Spector and Carole King. KIKI is scheduled to release her next album entitled, Me And A Steinway this year.
