Ultimate 70s Tour: Poco, Orleans & Pure Prairie League

Enjoy the sounds of 70s country-flavored pop-rock this summer with a trio of musical greats – Poco, Orleans and Pure Prairie League. Following the demise of Buffalo Springfield in 1968, Poco formed to become one of the ground-breaking bands from the West Coast country rock movement that came from the Laurel Canyon scene. Meanwhile on the other side of the country, Woodstock, NY-based band Orleans began creating their New Orleans-influenced music, culminating in their biggest hit “Still the One” in 1976. Lastly, the addition of a pedal steel guitar leads to blazing guitar duels, giving Pure Prairie League their exciting, signature sound.

Poco

For more than 50 years, their distinctive harmonies and stellar musicianship helped define the sound of country-rock. Still led by the band co-founder and multiinstrumentalist who wrote and sang their biggest hits, they are a dedicated unit of four formidable songwriters, vocalists, arrangers and players. And rather than rest on any of these considerable laurels, they instead hit stages coast-to-coast armed with the kind of classic songs and instrumental chops that puts performers half their age to shame. In other words, Poco today is a band reborn.

 

Orleans

Orleans is best known as the Pop/Rock band that brought you the classic 70s hits Still The One, Dance With Me and Love Takes Time. Now in its 46th year, Orleans has produced a body of work spanning 16+ albums and 4 DVDs. The band continues to be in great demand for live performances, as they have been for over 4 decades. Co-founders Lance Hoppen and John Hall, along with long-standing members Lane Hoppen, Fly Amero and Charlie Morgan deliver Orleans’ music with power, class and integrity to appreciative audiences everywhere.

 

Pure Prairie League

From their beginnings in mid-Sixties Ohio as a group of friends playing cover tunes to the present-day unit featuring founding member/pedal-steel innovator John David Call, veteran bassist Mike Reilly, propulsive drummer Scott Thompson and guitar ace Donnie Clark, PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE continues to embellish the rich 43-year history of one of Country-Rock’s pioneering forces. As one reviewer recently wrote: “PPL’s sound combines sweet memories with edgy, contemporary muscle. Their vocals are as strong as Kentucky moonshine and the musicianship and performance skills are as sharp as a straight razor”
