John Mayer
"Sob Rock Tour"
@Toyota Center

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."

 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.

Comedian Carlos Mencia makes his way to northwest Houston this weekend at The Improv. Whether it his man-on-the-street interviews or studio comedy commercial parodies Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary his comic ability to connect with his audience.

Mencia comes from a humble background born in San Pedro Sula Honduras the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old where he was raised in Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after he successfully graduated from Garfield High School.

 Ronnie Milsap
@Arena Theatre

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.
