“Lowdown”, “Lido Shuffle”, “Jojo” – these are just a few of the classic hits that have made Boz Scaggs a household name. Fans who have followed his remarkable career dating back to the late 60s with the Steve Miller Band; his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees and Middle Man; and the splendid assurance of late-period high points like Some Change and Dig, instantly recognize Scaggs’ characteristically deft touch as a singer – something that is immediately evident on his spellbinding new album, A Fool to Care. “I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” Boz says about his spellbinding new album, A Fool to Care. His soul is effortless and deeply felt, never making a show of itself, but unmistakably evident in every lyric he delivers.

Boz Scaggs is renowned among his fans and fellow musicians as one of America’s preeminent R&B artists. A singer, songwriter and guitarist, Scaggs had several records and a solid fan base behind him when his 1975 album Silk Degrees became one of the landmark pop records of the decade.  Subsequent releases ushered in more hits and years of touring.

Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg are together as The RIDES! Stephen Stills, the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, a five time Grammy nominated guitar and Chicago rock/blues keyboardist Barry Goldberg are breaking more fresh new blues-rock ground than ever on their raucous and soulful new album Pierced Arrow. The RIDES are letting their growing legion of fans know they’re in this for the long haul.

Their high-energy performances transcended individual star power to create a deep and rejuvenating chemistry. Onstage and in the studio, the groundwork for the trio’s multi-dimensional creativity is laid by the explosive rhythm section bassist Kevin McCormick and Shepherd’s long time drummer Chris Layton, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee himself, as a member of the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble.
