Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, Huey Lewis and the News play a brand of straight-ahead rock and roll that has outlasted countless trends, selling more than 20 million albums and earning Grammy Awards along the way. The group still performs around 100 shows a year. Lewis has enjoyed recent success on screen and stage as well, acting on the hit television show Hot in Cleveland, and performing in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Chicago.
The group released Soulsville, their first album in nine years, on November 2, 2010. Recorded at historic Ardent Studios in Memphis, the album features 14 classic songs from the vault of Stax Records, including “Respect Yourself” and “Got To Get You Off My Mind.” Considered to be the preeminent soul music label in America, Stax was home to artists like Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T & The MG’s, and Isaac Hayes, and produced an astounding number of hit records throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Ably paying tribute to the rich Stax legacy, Huey Lewis and The News, joined by their long time horn section, capture the energy and excitement of this important era.
Soulsville re-unites Huey Lewis and the News with co-producer Jim Gaines (Sports, Fore!) who worked at the Stax studios as a young man and was involved in many of the label’s original recordings.
“We’re especially proud of the collection,” said Lewis. “There should be a number of surprises for everyone.”
Huey Lewis and the News features Lewis on lead vocals and harmonica, Johnny Colla on saxophone, Bill Gibson on drums, Sean Hopper on keyboards, John Pierce on bass, Stef Burns on guitar, Marvin McFadden on trumpet, Rob Sudduth on tenor sax and Johnnie Bamont on baritone sax.
Huey Lewis and the News is part of the Belle Tire Concert Series.
