Todd Rundgren: Unpredictable Tour

Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center – Chester, NY

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Todd Rundgren began playing guitar as a teenager, going on to found and front The Nazz, the quintessential 60’s psychedelic group. In 1969, he left the band to pursue a solo career, recording his debut offering, the legendary Runt. But it was 1972’s seminal Something/Anything?, on which he played all the instruments, sang all the vocal parts, and acted as his own producer, that catapulted Todd into the superstar limelight, prompting the press to unanimously dub him ‘Rock’s New Wunderkind’. It was followed by such landmark LPs as The Hermit of Mink Hollow and the above mentioned A Wizard, A True Star, as well as such hit singles as I Saw The Light, Hello It’s MeCan We Still Be Friends, and Bang The Drum.

Wickham Falls Album Release Party

Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center – Chester, NY

OME Presents Hudson Valley, NY’s very own Wickham Falls’ self-titled album release party! You’re invited, Friday, July 29th at 6pm, located at Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center in the lovely historic arts & crafts village of Sugar Loaf, NY. 

The band collectively decided to make their second full-length album, Wickham Falls, self-titled because they feel the songs truly represent the band’s identity. Wickham Falls’ sound has been described as similar to The Pixies or The Cranberries, in-part due to singer Brooke Nilson’s ethereal and beautiful voice. Members of this four-piece Alternative Rock band show love to their personal influences on this album, such as The Strokes, Badflower and Peach Pit. 

We look forward to celebrating Wickham Falls’ album release with you!

Lynyrd Skynyrd

with very special guests The Marshall Tucker Band and Six Gun Sally

The House of Power Stadium – Middletown, NY

In 2018, Southern Rock icons, Lynyrd Skynyrd, announced that, after a career that has spanned more than 40 years and includes a catalog of more than 60 albums with more than 30 million units sold, they would embark on their “Last of the Street Survivors” Farewell Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the career-concluding farewell tour logged over 50 stops by the end of 2018. In 2019 Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, and Rickey Medlocke sat down with Dan Rather for a candid conversation on The Big Interview during the first leg of their farewell tour. Reflecting on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s enduring legacy and their fans around the world, Rossington told Rather, “It takes a long time to finish a farewell tour when you’re like us, ‘cause we’ve played everywhere… I keep jokin’ it’d take ten years to do the farewell tour.” However, like many things since COVID hit last year, their Farewell tour has been put on pause. Lead singer, Johnny Van Zant said, ‘this past year has been very difficult on so many people, including us and our families. I think you realize once something is taken away from you, you truly realize how important it is and such a part of your life. ’Original member and guitarist Gary Rossington added, ‘you know, we were in the last part of the Farewell Tour when COVID turned our world upside down. And since that time, we have been talking amongst the band, and realized that music has such a way of healing. Maybe it’s not our time to go? And maybe it’s our time to lift people’s spirits and lives and bring back some joy and happiness after so much turmoil this past year. This country and the world have been through a lot this past year with COVID. We’re still standing, still keeping the music going. We want to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too.CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.

The Man In Black

Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center – Chester, NY

Born and raised in a working class suburb of St. Louis, Shawn Barker took a schoolboy love for singing in church with his family and turned it into a career, a one of a kind tribute to Johnny Cash, one of America’s greatest musical icons. Universally considered the pre-eminent Johnny Cash tribute artist, Barker has an uncanny resemblance to Cash. His strikingly similar looks, voice, and spot-on mannerisms revitalize the true character of Mr. Cash himself, and have led Barker to an immensely successful career performing his tribute to the original “Man In Black”. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.

Janis Ian: Last North American Tour

Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center – Chester, NY

Janis Ian keeps a sign above her workspace at home, a North Star that guides her after more than five decades as a revered songwriter who dares to say what no one else will.

“Do not be held hostage by your legacy.”

When you’ve written, starting at age 14, some of pop music’s most evergreen songs — “Society’s Child,” “At Seventeen,” “Jesse,” and “Stars,” among them — it’s no wonder she’d need a reminder to shake free of our expectations.

Now, at 70, Ian is embracing a new milestone: the art of the farewell. Set for release on January 21, 2022, on her own Rude Girl Records, The Light at the End of the Line is Ian’s latest and last solo studio album to bookend a kaleidoscopic catalog that began with her 1967 self-titled debut.

Ian says, “It takes a certain amount of maturity to realize that you don’t have to keep proving you can write.  I’ve already created a body of work I’m proud of, and I’m old enough to realize that it’s the light at the end of the line that matters.  And I’m not calling this retiring. It’s rewiring.”

As her first album of new material in 15 years, The Light at the End of the Line also sets the stage for what Ian imagines is her final North American tour in 2022.

Sophie B. Hawkins & Paula Cole

Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center – Chester, NY

Sophie B. Hawkins burst onto the international music scene with her 1992 platinum-selling debut album, Tongues and Tails, which included the indelible hit song “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover”, and earned her a Best New Artist Grammy nomination. The last three decades have brought multiple awards, sold out concerts, appearances on film and television, performances with some of the best known names in the business, a documentary feature, a critically-lauded tour-de-force performance as Janis Joplin in the nationally-touring play Room 105, songs appearing in hit films and TV shows, and five more albums, including Whaler, which featured the record-breaking longest-running single in Billboard Adult Contemporary chart history, the Number One hit, “As I Lay Me Down”. Much more than just a singer, Sophie writes all of her own songs, is a multi-instrumentalist, and has been fully involved in every aspect of the production of her records herself, from background vocals and playing her own instruments, to engineering and production of her albums.  She has proved an enduring artist with a fierce commitment to artistic integrity while both constantly evolving, and remaining steadfastly true to her own authentic history and experience which connects her to her fans at the very deepest levels.

In 1996, Paula Cole released her self-produced, second album “This Fire”. It was incendiary, a double-platinum smash.   The first single, “Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?” catapulted to the Top 10.  Her songwriting was loved by traditionalists, feminists, the LGBTQIA community, the whole world.  Cole was nominated for 7 Grammy awards and was the first woman to be nominated as Producer of the Year with no collaborators.  Her second single, the anthemic “I Don’t Want to Wait” dominated charts for a year and then lived again as the well-loved theme-song for “Dawson’s Creek.”  Cole pushes boundaries and touches hearts and minds with her songwriting.  Her live performances are movements of passion. She was a seminal figure in the formation of the first Lilith Fair, and has performed the world over, for the Troops in the Persian Gulf, to coffee houses in small towns across America, to stadiums with Peter Gabriel, to elegant theaters.

Blue Öyster Cult

Sugar Loaf Performing Arts Center – Chester, NY

For five decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.

Upon the release of BÖC’s self-­‐titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-­‐yet-­‐heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC’s canon includes three stone-­‐cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s Agents of Fortune, the pummeling “Godzilla” from 1977’s Spectres and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin’ for You” from1981’s Fire of Unknown Origin. Other notable BÖC songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Then Came the Last Days of May,” “I Love the Night,” “In Thee, “Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Dominance and Submission,” “Astronomy,” “Black Blade” and “Shooting Shark.”
