Barenaked Ladies

Live at Lebanon Opera House

Sunday, September 14, 2014


Lebanon Opera House is delighted to welcome Barenaked Ladies on Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 7:30 PM. Seats for the show are $75 and $59.50. Currently, tickets are sold-out; but consider adding your name to the ticket waiting list by calling the Lebanon Opera House Box Office at 603-448-0400.


The Barenaked Ladies were formed in 1988 by members of the band, Steven Page and Ed Robertson. The two were childhood friends from the Toronto suburbs. They attended the Scarborough Board of Education’s summer music camp, where they realized how well they played together. Later, the two decided to name their band “Barenaked Ladies”. This name came to them while attending a Bob Dylan concert, as a joke. The first ever Barenaked Ladies show was on October 1st, 1988.


Soon after their first show, their alumni friends, Jim & Andy Creeggan, started to jam with them. In 1990, Andy left the band for other pursuits. While the three were playing at The Buskers Festival in Waterloo, they met Tyler Stewart. Tyler fell in love with their humor and antics. The now quartet started to play at local clubs and started a new age in acoustic hip-hop.


Through the years, Barenaked Ladies have exhibited two outstanding qualities of Canadian bands: they can play their fannies off, and they can also bring the funny. No outfit hailing from north of the border embodies these paired virtues more engagingly than this band, whose fusion of hooks and yuks has resulted in more than 14 million albums sold, as well as putting myriad fannies in the seats of concert halls and amphitheaters around the world.


On the occasion of the band’s 25th anniversary, BNL—Ed Robertson (guitar/vocals), Jim Creeggan (bass/vocals), Kevin Hearn (keyboard/guitar/vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums/vocals)—are celebrating with new album GRINNING STREAK. The album, the band’s twelfth, is their first in partnership with Vanguard Records after self-releasing their last four efforts.


Indeed, the whole of GRINNING STREAK unfolds with the signature blend of immediacy, tunefulness and witty sophistication that made such BNL hits as “Pinch Me, “Brian Wilson,” “If I Had $1,000,000” and the chart-topping “One Week” modern-day classics.


Robertson says of the pop music style that the band has championed throughout the last quarter century. “Pop is a form that I love—it can be high-energy and intricate,” “When I think of pop music, I think of the Cars and Squeeze—interesting melodic rock is what I gravitate to and what I’m always striving for. I want guitar-heavy pop/rock that’s intelligent, evocative and thought-provoking. I want it to be singable and relatable, and I want there to be other layers in there for the people who want to go deeper—because not everybody does. I’ve heard so many times, ‘I love you guys ’cause your songs are just fun and easygoing.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m glad you enjoy them, but there’s a dark underbelly that you haven’t mined.’”

An Evening with Bruce Hornsby

A benefit for the Upper Valley Haven

Live at Lebanon Opera House

September 23, 2014


Virginia-born singer, bandleader and pianist, Bruce Hornsby will perform at the Lebanon Opera House on Tuesday, September 23, 2014. Seats for the 7:30 pm show are $74 and $64 and $48. This is a benefit concert for the Upper Valley Haven. Tickets can be purchased at the Lebanon Opera House Box Office in person or via phone 603-448-0400. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.lebanonoperahouse.org.


Almost three decades after winning a Grammy for Best New Artist and launching one of contemporary music’s most diverse careers, Bruce Hornsby still makes joyful noise as he discovers clever and expansive ways to chronicle dynamic musical snapshots of his often generously collaborative journey. For all his talents as a singer, bandleader and pianist with an instantly identifiable sound, Hornsby is a songwriter at heart committed to portraying his songs in changing ways that allow them to expand organically. This approach was further developed by Hornsby’s time with The Grateful Dead when he joined the legendary band between 1990 and 1995 for over a hundred shows. In the Dead’s vibrant tradition of loosely blending improvised folk and blues Hornsby found a shared musical aesthetic.


In recent years, he has pushed his artistic limits, working with bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs, The Bruce Hornsby Trio, and jazz legend Charlie Haden. Hornsby has also scored a number of projects for filmmaker Spike Lee including the documentary Kobe Doin’ Work (2009), Red Hook Summer (2012), and the upcoming Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. Hornsby has contributed to all-star collections that pay tributes to Fats Domino, The Band and most recently, Jackson Browne. A music graduate of University of Miami, Hornsby also has partnered with its Frost School of Music to establish the Creative American Music Program, a curriculum designed to develop the creative skills of talented young artist/songwriters by immersing them in the many traditions that form the foundations of modern American songwriting.


Hornsby has an extraordinary musical story. His three Grammy wins typify the diversity of his first decade of recording: Best New Artist as leader of Bruce Hornsby and the Range; Best Bluegrass Recording for a version of “The Valley Road” that appeared on the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s Will The Circle Be Unbroken Volume II; and a shared award with Branford Marsalis in 1993 for Best Pop Instrumental Performance for “Barcelona Mona,” a song for the 1992 Olympic Games.


The commercial successes and creative achievements of Hornsby’s superstar collaborations — including many sampled passages chosen by hip-hop artists — verify Hornsby’s fusion of wide appeal and musical adventure. Consider: His albums have sold over 11 million copies worldwide. The title cut from The Way It Is was the most played song on American radio in 1987, winning the ASCAP Song of the Year award. Harbor Lights won the 1994 of Downbeat Reader’s Poll Beyond Album of the Year — a citation given to music from any genre apart from jazz or blues. The late Tupac Shakur, working with Hornsby, fashioned a new song over “The Way It Is” adding new lyrics and calling the result “Changes.” The track was an international hit and sold fourteen million copies.


Over the years, Hornsby has played on over a hundred records, including albums by Bob Dylan, Don Henley, the Grateful Dead, Bob Seger, Crosby Stills and Nash, Stevie Nicks, Cowboy Junkies, Squeeze, Chaka Khan, Liquid Jesus, Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin, Bela Fleck, Clint Black, Ricky Skaggs, Randy Scruggs, and Willie Nelson. Hornsby contributed end-title songs for the Spike Lee films Clockers and Bamboozled.


Hornsby has participated in many memorable events: the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 1995 opening concert, Farm Aid IV and VI, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, New Orleans Heritage and Jazz Festival, Bonnaroo, and Woodstock II and III. An avid sports fan, Hornsby — solo and with Branford Marsalis — has performed the National Anthem for many major events including the NBA All-Star game, four NBA finals, and the 1997 World Series Game 5. His work appears on the soundtrack to Ken Burns Baseball.
