Known for his smooth blues-rock sound, two-time Grammy Award-winning artist Kenny Loggins has 12 platinum albums under his belt. He first rose to fame as part of the duo Loggins and Messina before embarking on a meteoric solo career during which he penned and recorded such enduring hits as "Footloose," "Danger Zone," "Celebrate Me Home," I'm Alright" and the Grammy-winning "This Is It." Now in his fourth decade of performing, he's still going strong. His latest album, a Disney collaboration titled All Join In, includes songs for the whole family. It is, as Loggins puts it, "a tasty musical gumbo, full of a lot of colors and flavors." Loggins is also writing yet another chapter in his storied career by teaming with two all-star country musicians to form the trio Blue Sky Riders. Country Music Hall of Famer Gary Burr has written hits for everyone from Conway Twitty to Christina Aguilera, while singer-songwriter Georgia Middleman's songs have been recorded by some of country music's top artists, including Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride. Blue Sky Riders released their debut album last year and have already appeared on The Tonight Show and at the prestigious SXSW music fest in Austin. Learn More

Our first surprise was the quality of the included dinner. It was truly an elegant dinner with a great view of silicon valley below. Our check added up to $175 (including 2 glasses of wine each), which was all covered by our Goldstar package. The subsequent concert was a trip into the past, with Brian Wilson singing his best hits. A back-up crew of singers and musicians filled in the traditional Beach Boys background beat.

It was awesome. Our seats were better than expected. They performed their hearts out. Played our favorites and introduced their Gershwin scores which were also terrific.
On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a ten and the other three guests aggreed.
Quotes & Highlights
He is one of popular music’s most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilson’s remarkable journey began in a modest Hawthorne, California home that was filled with music. His mom and dad both played piano, and as a young “boy soprano,” Brian’s vocal gift was immediately evident. He had also started singing harmonies…literally “in their room”…with his two younger brothers (Dennis and Carl).
As a teen in the 1950s, he became obsessed with the harmonic blend of groups like the Four Freshmen, and then, in the early 1960s, inspired to combine multi-part vocal harmony with the rock rhythms of Chuck Berry, Brian found his place in the musical sun. He was barely out of his teens when he began to create some of the most beloved records ever … nine consecutive gold albums that featured such classics as “Surfer Girl,” “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Help Me Rhonda” and “California Girls”… just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on with his family band, the Beach Boys.
