Some of the best blues in America today isn't coming out of Chicago or the Deep South -- it's coming from New York City's Times Square where the B.B. King Blues Club All-Stars featuring the Harlem Blues Project jam weekly with special guests. Four soulful and dynamic veteran vocalist-musicians make up the Harlem Blues Project: Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack, SaRon Crenshaw and Barry Harrison. Singer and bassist Jerry Dugger is a member of the New York Blues Hall of Fame, who's shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton and more. Guitarist Junior Mack has played with greats like the Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts and Honeyboy Edwards. Guitarist SaRon Crenshaw is a nationally touring musician whose style is inspired by B.B. King, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy and other blues masters, and drummer Barry Harrison, a long-time band member for Johnny Copeland and Shemekia Copeland, rounds out one of the hottest blues outfits ever assembled. They're joined by a rotating cast of the finest musicians in New York City and beyond. Learn More
More Information About '70s Tributefest II
Unchained is a group of four seasoned musicians who share an appreciation of the unbridled fun, energy, and musicianship of the golden age of Van Halen. Van Halen was the band in their formative years, and as everyone knows, the group ruled the rock 'n' roll world for a long time. Everyone who lived during those years knows that the band's energy was the perfect blend of attitude, recklessness, prodigy-level musicianship, spanning the full gamut of musical emotions, from "Dance the Night Away" to "Mean Street."
Unchained has wowed audiences for almost 15 years years with its reproduction of the Van Halen sound and its members' astounding technical musical ability. From "Big Bad Bill" and "Happy Trails" to "Light up the Sky," "Dirty Movies," and everything in between, including some tracks from the significant Sammy years, this band delivers Van Halen like no other.
Into the Void is a band that plays Black Sabbath's music from the Ozzy years. The musicians in the group were hand-picked from three different tribute bands. Vocalist Rick Woods comes from Black Bloody Black, guitarist Aaron Kipness and bassist Marty Beck come from Bargain (The Who tribute band), and drummer Tom Capobianco comes from Sabbra Cadabra and Black Dog.
Woods's vocals are a dead-on representation of Ozzy Osbourne that has never been topped. Kipness built a special amplifier and effects pedals from scratch to exactly replicate Tony Iommi's signature sound, and he spent many hours learning the requisite solos and songs note for note. Beck captures the true essence of Geezer Butler's style and tone by using identical basses and high-powered amplification. And Capobianco, a veteran of drumming Black Sabbath's music for over 20 years, pounds his Ludwig drums relentlessly in true Bill Ward fashion.
Active since 1998, Sanctuary is the only Iron Maiden tribute on the East Coast ever to be featured in the official Iron Maiden fanclub magazine. The band gives Iron Maiden fans a true and authentic Maiden stage show experience unlike no other Maiden tribute. As part of the band's stage shows, Sanctuary uses simulated flame effects, video projection backdrops, fog machines, and more - features now imitated by numerous other Maiden tribute bands.
Sanctuary can deliver up to three hours of Iron Maiden and performs regularly in the Tri-State area, complete with a stationary laser-eyes Eddie the mascot with a crystal ball and even live Eddie appearances. No true Iron Maiden fan has ever been disappointed after seeing this band perform live. You won't be either.
