"Sob Rock Tour"
Saturday 4/23/2022 7:30 PM
This weekend its TheGRAMMY® Award-winning artist, celebrated songwriter, and iconic guitar player John Mayer returning to the Bayou City with his Sob Rock Tour.
(From All Music.com) After making his introduction as a sensitive, acoustic-styled songwriter on 2001's Room for Squares, John Mayer steadily widened his approach over the subsequent years, encompassing everything from blues-rock to adult contemporary in the process. As adept a guitarist as a singer, Mayer gained widespread attention, spiking his songcraft with jazz chords and literate turns of phrase. The combination proved to be quite popular, as Room for Squares went triple-platinum before its follow-up release, Heavier Things, arrived in 2003 at the top of the Billboard 200. Accolades followed, including Grammys for hits like "Your Body Is a Wonderland" and "Daughters."
He reached number two on the Billboard 200 with 2006's Continuum, an album that earned him further Grammy Awards for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. Mayer continued to transform his sound with each album, moving beyond the material that had launched his career and adopting elements of rock, blues, and soul. Moreover, he partnered with legends of several genres, making guest appearances on albums by Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, and B.B. King while touring with jazz icon Herbie Hancock.

Beth Hart in Concert
@Bayou Music Center
Saturday 4/23/2022 8:00 PM
This weekend its blues woman Beth Hart at LiveNation's Bayou Music Center in downtown Houston.
(From All Music.com) Beth Hart emerged in the 2010s as a formidable singer and songwriter on the contemporary blues scene. Her rise to stardom was a long time coming. Hart first made inroads as a contestant on Star Search in 1993 and had a brief period where she was pushed as a possible adult alternative act, landing a slot on the 1996 Lollapalooza tour.
The Blues Magazine once dubbed Beth Hart “the ultimate female rock star”
A series of bad business breaks and personal troubles kept her on the margins throughout the 2000s, but in 2011, she teamed up with blues guitar hero Joe Bonamassa for Don't Explain and the collaboration rejuvenated her career. Alternating between records with Bonamassa and solo albums, Hart developed a reputation as an incisive, soulful songwriter and a powerful vocalist. She took artistic risks on her records, too, changing her backing musicians and collaborating with superstar producer Rob Cavallo for her stark, intimate 2019 album War in My Mind; he also produced her 2022 A Tribute to Led Zeppelin.
Beth Hart - Leave The Light On
(Live At The Royal Albert Hall)
(From Beth Hart.com) The Blues Magazine once dubbed Beth Hart “the ultimate female rock star”, and there’s no doubt that her two-decade career is the ultimate thrill-ride. Born in Los Angeles, she released a fistful of hit albums through the ’90s, then reignited in the post-millennium as both a solo artist and the head-turning vocalist for guitar heroes like Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck and Slash. “Extraordinary,” wrote The Times of her once-a-generation voice box, while The Guardian praised her “daring, brooding and angry” performances.

No country singer had as smooth a touch as Ronnie Milsap. This weekend the country music singer and pianist makes his way to Houston's Arena Theatre.
Did you know? The seventy-nine year old was one of country music's most popular and influential performers of the 1970s and 1980s. He became one of the most successful and versatile country "crossover" singers of his time, appealing to both country and pop music markets with hit songs that used pop, R&B, and rock and roll elements.
(From All Music.com Stephen Erlewine) Blending country and soul so elegantly he could often appeal to a pop audience -- and he did: "(There's) No Gettin' Over Me" went all the way to number five on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1981 -- Milsap also had deep roots in soul. Long before he was a fixture on the country charts -- during his prime, he racked up 35 number one hits -- Milsap cracked the R&B charts with a version of Ashford & Simpson's "Never Had It So Good," and that familiarity with rhythm & blues was apparent throughout his work.
Ronnie Milsap - (There's) No Gettin' Over Me
Nevertheless, his strength lay in taking it easy, a quality evident on "Pure Love," his breakthrough number one in 1974. Arriving just after Charlie Rich brought a similar country-soul synthesis into the upper reaches of the charts, "Pure Love" rocketed to number one on Billboard's country charts, followed to that position by "Please Don't Tell Me How the Story Ends" -- a one-two punch that turned the singer into a star. Milsap sustained that stardom for nearly two decades, remaining a fixture in the charts by subtly, slyly adapting to the times: he borrowed some of the urbane slickness of Urban Cowboy at the dawn of the '80s and happily made videos during the peak of MTV. As he entered his mature phase, he capitalized on a nostalgic streak, remaking rock & roll chestnuts in the mid-'80s, thereby setting himself up to ease into the oldies circuit once the hits dried up in the early '90s. Despite relying on his old songs, Milsap never entirely stopped recording, resurfacing every decade or so for a splashy comeback along the lines of 2006's My Life or 2019's The Duets, albums that punctuated such easy-rolling records as 2021's A Better Word for Love. Milsap earned an induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014. (Read more @All Music.com click here)
