Boz Scaggs on the road again

August 31, 2017 by  

Boz Scaggs, whose career in music spans decades, is on tour again, and is coming to Glenside’s Keswick Theatre in just a few weeks.

William Royce Scaggs is a native of Canton, Ohio. A guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, Scaggs works in a number of genres including jazz rock, soft rock, blues rock, rock, and blue-eyed soul, the last of which refers to soul and other traditionally African-American music played by white performers such as the Righteous Brothers.

In the 1960s, Scaggs played guitar and occasionally sang as the lead in the Steve Miller Band. He went on his own in the 1970s and had several hit singles such as ‘Lowdown’ and ‘Lido Shuffle’. Arguably his biggest successes came in the late 1970s and early 1980s, during which time he recorded his album ‘Silk Degrees’, which went to #2 on the US Billboard 200, and rose to #1 in many other countries. A number of tracks from the album became hits, and a successful world tour followed.

Scaggs will be appearing September 16 at the Keswick on North Keswick Avenue, at 8.00 pm Tickets are on sale now both online and at the theater box office.

Audiences often like to have a souvenir of a show or concert, so management often works with a poster printing company to create posters advertising them, perhaps also making them available for sale at the event.
