Boz Scaggs Coming to the Sandler Center Oct. 23

Back by popular demand featuring all the hits and music from his new release, "A Fool to Care": Tickets Go on Sale July 17 at 10 a.m.

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Boz Scaggs performs his hits and music from his new release, “A Fool to Care,” at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts on Oct. 23 at 8 p.m. as part of the Tidewater Mortgage Services, Inc. Great Performance Series.

Another spellbinding album in a prolific career, “A Fool to Care” boasts Scaggs’ pioneering blend of rock, soul, jazz and R&B, taken to new heights. You can hear the sense of fun and that ability and willingness to wander in any musical direction throughout the album’s 12 tracks.

 

“I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” Boz Scaggs says about “A Fool to Care.”  “It’s like I’m just going wherever I want to go with it.”

 

The inspirational heart of those new songs lies in the sounds of Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma that played such a vital role in shaping Scaggs’ musical sensibility, but they venture forth boldly from there. They range from the seductive New Orleans rumble of the title track to the wry social commentary of “Hell to Pay” and a heartbreakingly wistful interpretation of The Band’s “Whispering Pines.” As he did on his most recent previous album, “Memphis,” (2013), Scaggs worked with producer Steve Jordan and a telepathic core band consisting of Jordan on drums, Willie Weeks on bass, Ray Parker, Jr. on rhythm guitar and Jim Cox on keyboards.

 

Scaggs has continued on a lauded and multi-genre musical journey to the present day. With a trademark voice, a rich catalogue and many accolades, Scaggs continues to establish himself as one of music’s most creative and original artists.

 

TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, July 17, AT 10 a.m.!
