Huey Lewis & the News Coming to Turning Stone
Band to Perform in the Event Center November 4
Huey Lewis & the News bring their unique style of pop, rock, and rhythm and blues to the Turning Stone Resort Casino Event Center Sunday, November 4. The band last played at Turning Stone in the Showroom in June, 2007.
“Heart and Soul”, the title of one of their hit songs, also explains the enduring appeal of Huey Lewis & The News. For over thirty years they have been making and performing music that resonates with people at their core. Whether it is about the daily grind in “Workin' for a Livin'” or lamenting a troubled relationship in “If This Is It”, the band connects with people on a gut level.
The driving rhythm of “Heart of Rock & Roll” sings the praises of the great music being made across the US, while “Stuck with You” offers a love song with a tongue-in-cheek turn of phrase and amazing harmonies. Meanwhile, “The Power of Love”, which the band wrote for the hit film “Back to the Future”, not only went to #1 on the Billboard singles chart, but also was nominated for an Academy Award.
Their playing is tight, effortlessly moving from an up front, power rock song to a smooth, laid back, soulful ballad. They even walk the musical high wire, leaving their instruments behind mid-show to perform some a capella selections of early rock & roll classics, such as “Sixty Minute Man”, “Under The Boardwalk”, and “It’s Alright”.
Huey Lewis & The News have a love of music that comes through in everything they do. Be it their albums, their live performances, or the way they interact with their fans, they are a band with heart and soul.
