The show at Hard Rock Event Center will feature their long time horn section of San Francisco Bay Area luminaries: Rob Sudduth (tenor saxophone), Marvin McFadden (trumpet) and Johnnie Bamont (baritone saxophone). Fans attending the show can look forward to a special performance as the band incorporates a variety of musical influences including R&B and soul to create a unique sound. Lewis will bring some blues tones to the performance when he breaks out into harmonica solos. One of the highlights of the band’s a cappella rendition of early rock ‘n’ roll classics is “It’s Alright.”
Huey Lewis and The News has worked together for 38 years and their brand of music has outlasted countless trends. Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, they continue to thrill audiences worldwide, selling more than 20 million albums in the process. Huey Lewis and The News has written and performed many classics including, “The Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Stuck With You,” “I Want A New Drug,” “If This Is It,” “Hip To Be Square,” “Workin’ For A Livin’,” “Do You Believe In Love.” The group also wrote and performed, “The Power of Love” and “Back In Time” for the 1985 cult classic “Back To The Future.” “The Power of Love” went on to be a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Singles Chart and was nominated for an Academy Award.
