George Thorogood and The Destroyers Fri, Sep 10, 2021 | 9:00PM
Silver Creek Event Center

Since 1976, George Thorogood and The Destroyers have sold over 15 million albums, built a catalog of classic hits, and played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows.  They broke records with their 50 Dates/50 States Tour, delivered landmark performances at Live Aid and on SNL, and became mainstays of radio, MTV and stages worldwide for more than two generations.  Through it all, they’ve remained one of the most consistent – and consistently passionate – progenitors of blues-based rock in pop culture history.

For the past 45 years, it’s been very good to be George Thorogood and The Destroyers.  And in 2021, their Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock will prove why like never before.

For Thorogood and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – the power to rock audiences has been both battle cry and creed from the beginning.  “Since I was 17,” George says, “all I wanted to do was see how far I could go with my guitar, putting my own spin on music I loved.”  After a few hard years as a solo acoustic performer – a period he would revisit with his acclaimed 2017 album Party Of One – George added a drummer and bass player to form the electric trio he called The Destroyers.  Built around Thorogood’s fiery guitar skills, explosive performance style and a blistering take on blues rarities, the band began to gain a devout following at college parties around their native Wilmington, Delaware.  It was at one of their earliest shows that Thorogood had his live performance epiphany.  “It wasn’t about the amount of people we drew, but rather the impression we made,” he explains.  “I asked myself, ‘Are we reaching them? Do they want more?’ And from the very first set we knew that we had something special.”

Thorogood & The Destroyers indeed remain unstoppable.  In the past few years alone, the band released a top-selling limited edition 7” single for Record Store Day and saw the re-issues of their legendary Bad To The Bone, Born To Be Bad and Greatest Hits: 30 Years Of Rock albums on 180-gram colored vinyl.  Thorogood himself received the 2018 B.B. King Award from The Montreal International Jazz Festival, and his solo debut Party Of One – which critics called “brilliant” (Spin), “electrifying” (Guitar Player) and “chock full of classics” (Music Connection) – became George’s fastest-selling disc in over 20 years.  And in 2020, Epiphone created the George Thorogood ‘White Fang’ ES-125TDC premier signature model guitar, while Craft Recordings released George Thorogood & The Destroyers Live In Boston 1982: The Complete Concert that Classic Rock says “may well be one of the great live albums, entirely superb and a master class in live performance.”

It’s live on tour that George & The Destroyers continues to flip the switch nightly, delivering what The Toledo Blade calls “a gut-bustin’, guitar-wailin’, face-meltin’, fiery-tempoed, take-no-prisoners, good old-fashioned lunch-bucket rock & roll show” that includes their signature hits “Get A Haircut”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Who Do You Love” and the definitive badass anthem “Bad To The Bone”, along with several surprises.  “George has been honing the set list since our bar band days,” explains 43-year Destroyer bassist Bill Blough.  “It’s been a constant evolution to make it all killer, no filler.  We hear our walk-on song, the lights go down, and something still inherently clicks the second we step on stage.  We feel the audience’s energy and the show just explodes.”

Dokken and George Lynch Fri, Sep 24, 2021 | 9:00PM
Silver Creek Event Center

Dokken exploded out of the boiling hard rock and heavy metal scene in Los Angeles in the early 1980s.  “Breaking the Chains,” with its catchy title track, then set the stage for Dokken to become the most dominant creative and commercial force in the world of Melodic Hard Rock for the following years.  Such classic albums as “Tooth and Nail,” “Under Lock and Key,” and “Back for the Attack” all became multi-platinum selling smashes and the live “Beast from the East” went gold in Europe and Japan.  Songs like “Alone Again,” “Just Got Lucky,” “Into the Fire,” “In My Dreams,” “Unchain the Night,” “Dream Warriors,” “Burning like a Flame,” and “Heaven Sent” are still nowadays regarded among the genre’s finest.

The band hit stadium status in 1988 by playing in front of over one million fans in just five weeks.  It seemed Dokken was on the verge of superstardom, but like so many other bands that have come before and after them, Dokken broke up his group in 1989.

In 1994, the legendary A&R man John Kalodner offered Dokken a recording contract on the condition the group had to be original members.  The band released the appropriately titled “Dysfunctional” in 1995 selling 450,000 copies, which by the mid '90s was considered by industry standards very respectable.  Just as they were on the verge of releasing a second single, filming a video, starting a world tour and “taking it all the way,” as Don Dokken puts it, the baggage from their past reared its ugly head, and again the group began to unravel.  Soon after guitarist George Lynch left the group.

In October 2016, the original members of Dokken reunited for a brief sold out tour of Japan, playing in several arenas.  The current Dokken lineup includes Don Dokken on vocals, BJ Zampa on drums, Jon Levin on guitar, and Chris McCarvill on bass.  More information on Dokken is available at:  https://dokken.net.

George Lynch helped lead Dokken to stardom with his guitar and songwriting, which made him one of the most influential guitarists in modern music.  In 1989, he left Dokken and formed his own band Lynch Mob.  In just three years, Lynch Mob released two records and launched two worldwide tours.  In the following years, George reunited with Dokken, played with Lynch Mob, and started a career as a solo artist.  George formally retired the name of Lynch Mob in 2020, and has since rebranded his power trio as George Lynch & The Electric Freedom Band.  George Lynch is also a prolific recording artist completing records with many notable musicians and creating collector’s art guitars under his Mr. Scary Guitars Brand.  More information on George Lynch and Lynch Mob is available at https://georgelynch.com.

Silver Creek Event Center

Earlier this month Aaron dropped a new single, “Am I The Only One” from his forthcoming album, to be released later this year.  The single debuted #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, #2 on the all-genre Digital Song Sales and #14 on the Hot 100.  The track also drew 4 million U.S. streams in the tracking week.  You can buy/stream “Am I The Only One” by clicking on the following link: https://aaronlewis.lnk.to/AmITheOnlyOneWE.       

Throughout his more than two-decade career, whether topping the charts as front man of hard rock band Staind, or as No.1 artist on the Country charts as a solo artist, Aaron Lewis has always been painfully honest in his music.   

“That’s all I’ve ever done,” says Aaron.  “My songs have always been me wearing my heart, emotions, misfortunes and sins on my sleeve.  I don’t feel like it would be genuine or worthy if it wasn’t.”   

Known for his outspokenness, impassioned live show and Outlaw Country tunes, Aaron Lewis’ latest album, “State I’m In” debuted #2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, and is the follow-up to “Sinner,” which went number one on Billboard’s Top Country Albums, Top 200 Albums, and Top Digital Albums Charts upon release.  Lewis, who also fronts the wildly successful rock band, Staind, has sold 15 million albums worldwide and four consecutive top three debuts on Billboard’s Top 200, including the single “It’s Been Awhile,” which remains one of the most-played rock songs of the decade.  More information on Aaron Lewis can be found at www.AaronLewisMusic.com.

Anka Sings Sinatra: His Songs, My Songs, My Way Sat, Oct 30, 2021 | 9:00PM
Silver Creek Event Center
Anka

On the heels of his #1 hit, “Put Your Head on My Shoulder” with Olivia Newton-John, music legend and current Tik Tok sensation Paul Anka will release his second single, the title track from his forthcoming album, Making Memories.  The album, with all of the songs penned and performed by this legendary songwriter, is set for release on August 13, 2021, on Green Hill Productions, a subsidiary of Primary Wave Music. Pre-save Making Memories now at: https://greenhill.lnk.to/PAMakingMemories.

“The Anka Sings Sinatra tour will honor a great artist who has influenced me more than anyone else throughout my career, Frank Sinatra,” said Anka. “This show will also feature the hits that have spanned my career on this 65th anniversary year. It will be a night filled with his songs, my songs, my way!” 

Speaking of songs, Making Memories will not only feature the new, #1 duet with Newton-John but, also a newly reimagined version of his 1957 hit, “You Are My Destiny,”  which Anka performs with the multi-national classical crossover vocal group Il Divo.  On the heels of “My Way’s” 50th anniversary, perhaps one of his most famous self-penned hits, Anka has rerecorded this classic with vocals by Michael Bublé and Andrea Bocelli. In addition to revisiting these classics, Making Memories also features all new songs written by Anka.

To this day Anka, who has been called the ‘Justin Bieber of his time,’ continues to inspire and influence many musicians – from Drake to The Weeknd to Michael Bublé to Michael Jackson – all who share respect and admiration for Anka and his music.  Approaching his 80th birthday on July 30 with passion, the upcoming North American and new music, Anka will always be making new memories.

STYX

The six men comprising Styx have committed to “Rockin’ the Paradise” together with audiences far and wide by averaging over 100 shows a year every year since 1999, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. Founded in Chicago in 1972, Styx has the unique distinction of being the first band in rock history to have four consecutive certified multimillion-selling albums in a row: 1977’s The Grand Illusion, 1978’s Pieces of Eight, 1979’s Cornerstone, and 1981’s Paradise Theatre.  

After 14 years, Styx’s sonically sweet 16th studio album and its most ambitious, most challenging, and most rewarding album to date, “The Mission,” was finally released on June 16, 2017, on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. The highly anticipated two-disc reissue of “The Mission,” was released on July 27, 2018, via Alpha Dog 2T/UMe, which includes a CD of the original album, as well as a Blu-ray of “The Mission,” mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound accompanied by stunning visualizations for each of the album’s 14 songs based on the album artwork. “The Mission,” originally debuted on various Billboard charts, including: #6 Top Rock Albums, #11 Physical Albums, #11 Vinyl Albums, #13 Current Albums, #14 Billboard Top Albums, #16 Retail, #17 Mass Merch/Non-Traditional, #29 Digital Albums, and #45 Billboard 200 (includes catalog and streaming).

Styx draws from over four decades of barn-burning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a Styx set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor that is “The Grand Illusion;” to the hunker-down fortitude of all that is the “Blue Collar Man;” from the majestic spiritual love for a special “Lady;” to the poignant rumination on the fleeting nature of fame in “Miss America;” from an individual yearning for true connection as a “Man in the Wilderness;” to a soul-deep quest to achieve what’s at the heart of one’s personal vision in “Crystal Ball;” from the regal reach-for-the-stars bravado of “Come Sail Away;” to the grainy all-in gallop of that rugged “Renegade” who had it made, Styx draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound.  More information on Styx is available at https://styxworld.com.
