Tony Lucca - Date change and addition to the bill!


Tony Lucca and Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers

Tickets now on sale


WHO: David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts

WHAT: Tony Lucca and Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers

WHEN: Tuesday, March 6, 2012, at 7:30 p.m.

· Club Jaeb concert by Lucca was originally scheduled for Dec. 19

· SK6ERS are an addition to bill

WHERE: Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center

DETAILS: Tony Lucca’s sixth studio album Rendezvous With the Angels finds the performer crafting his most thoughtful, tuneful and mature work. The album includes appearances by Lucca’s 2009 tour mate Sara Bareilles (who duets on “Back to Me”) and Lady Antebellum guitarist Jason “Slim” Gambill (featured on the bonus track “Nobody But You”). The songs on the new recording, mostly written on the road during a busy touring schedule, demonstrate new growth and fresh perspectives.

On Gift Horse, their second album for Vanguard and fifth studio effort overall, Stephen Kellogg and his band mates (or SK6ERS as their loyal fans fondly refer to them) — Kit “Goose” Karlson (keys, bass, vocals), Brian “Boots” Factor (drums, vocals) and Sam “Steamer” Getz (guitars, vocals) —bring the rich legacy of American rock and roll into the present tense. This is thrilling music, muscular, immediate and life-embracing, steeped in tradition but addressing the present moment boldly and eloquently.

Regularly priced tickets start at $28.50 and may be purchased by calling 813.229.STAR (7827) or 800.955.1045 outside Tampa Bay, in person at the Straz Center Ticket Office or online at www.strazcenter.org.

Those already holding tickets for the Dec. 19 concert by Lucca will soon receive tickets for the Lucca/SK6ERS concert in the mail. Before Dec. 19, refunds may be obtained at the point of purchase for those not wishing or unable to attend the show on March 6.
