For over thirty years Huey Lewis & The News has been making and performing music that resonates with people at their core. Whether it’s their singing about the daily grind in “Workin’ For A Livin'” or lamenting a troubled relationship in “If This Is It,” this is a band that connects with people on a gut level.
In addition to commiserating over life’s rough spots, they have also given their millions of worldwide fans a soundtrack for the celebration of life’s great moments. The driving rhythm of “Heart of Rock & Roll” sings the praises of the great music being made across the U.S., while “Stuck With You” offers a love song with a tongue-in-cheek turn of phrase and amazing harmonies. Meanwhile “The Power of Love,” which the band wrote for the hit film “Back to the Future,” not only went to #1 on the Billboard singles chart, but also was nominated for an Academy Award.
As great as their recordings are, there is something extra special about the group’s live shows. Front man Huey Lewis’ voice has a rich, textured quality that lends itself well to not just their hits but also to the Memphis soul tunes they covered on their most recent album, Soulsville. And look for Lewis to bring some bluesy tones to the performance when he breaks out into his harmonica solos!
