Hard-rockin' Texas legends ZZ Top, "That Little Ol' Band From Texas," are coming to town, and you can see them live in concert, with Jeff Beck, at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia. ZZ Top, the bearded masters of blues-rock, are the only rock band ever to keep their entire original lineup intact for forty years, and Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard are still going strong. Known for such hits as "La Grange," "Sharp Dressed Man," "Gimme All Your Lovin'" and many, many more, their legendary live shows prove that they've still got the chops after almost half a century of rock 'n' roll. Having started his career with The Yardbirds, the Grammy-winning Beck has gone on to rank as one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock history, holding a place among the Top 5 in Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time." Expect a full set from each act, and a flame-throwing finale that brings them both back to the stage for some sure-fire shredding. The supporting act for the evening is Grammy-winning guitarist Gary Clark, Jr. Hailed as the future of Texas blues, Clark's trademark fuzzy guitar sound and smooth vocal style shows off a sleek new blues style influenced by jazz, soul, country and even hip-hop.

Check out the official music video for Jon B.’s single “Comfortable Swagg.”
Songwriter, producer, vocalist, and instrumentalist Jon B. brought a distinctive focus on smooth melodies to contemporary R&B. Born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and raised in Pasadena, California, Jon B. (short for Jonathan Buck) was the son of a professor of music and a concert pianist. Influenced by music found in his grandparents’ record store, he began combining the spirit of ‘70s soul with hip-hop-inspired productions on his 1995 debut album, Bonafide. It peaked on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart at number 24, led by the Top Ten R&B single ‘Someone to Love,’ a duet with prime influence Babyface, and went gold. His second album, 1997’s Cool Relax, continued the emphasis on hip-hop soul and featured two of his biggest singles in ‘They Don’t Know’ and the 2Pac-assisted ‘Are U Still Down.’ As a result, the set sold over a million copies, thus earning it platinum certification. During the following decade, Jon B. released three more albums — Pleasures U Like (2001), Stronger Everyday (2004), and Helpless Romantic (2008). In 2012, the singer returned with Comfortable Swagg. Also an accomplished songwriter for other artists, he penned material for the likes of Maxi Priest, For Real, After 7, Spice Girls, Az Yet, and Toni Braxton.
