Regarded by many as the top interpreters of Jamaican music in the U.S. , New York City band The Slackers play what they like to call "Jamaican rock 'n' roll." Though longtime fans of Jamaican musical styles like ska and reggae, this band is equally influenced by American music traditions, including rock 'n' roll, R&B, jazz, country and blues. Resisting the common view of ska music as ever-happy and lacking depth, The Slackers don't hesitate to play with aggression or change up their music's themes, and have opened for many top bands, including Rancid, Flogging Molly and The Pogues. Caz & The Day Laborers and The Evokatones open the show. Learn More

It was a fine show. His voice seemed to be great in shape , not like the last time i saw him three yrs ago .He talked a fair amount between songs ,which i found amusing. The band was also great, bunch of young guys who had there chops.Overall a very enjoyable evening.
Leon Russell played on, produced, arranged, and wrote some of rock and roll's most successful and important records. George Benson's cover of "This Masquerade" written by Leon was the first song in music history to occupy the number one spot on the jazz, pop, and R&B charts. "This Masquerade" also won "Record of the Year" and a Grammy in 1976. He released five Gold Albums and had a hand in many other chart hits including "Superstar," and a "A Song For You."
Leon was instrumental in some of Joe Cocker's biggest hits, including, perhaps, the defining song of Joe Cocker's career, "Delta Lady," written by Leon. The Carpenters struck gold with Leon's song "Superstar," Ray Charles covered "A Song For You," and B.B. King covered "Hummingbird." Leon Russell is pop music's most anonymous big shot.
