Huey Lewis & The News Set to Play at 2009 Festival

Huey Lewis & The News 2It’s booked!  Huey Lewis and the News is set to appear at the 2009 Lake Tahoe Music Festival July 25 at Old Greenwood.  Setting the tone for our summer concert series, this quintessential American rock band brings their legendary live performance to Lake Tahoe with anthems that highlighted the soundtrack of the ‘80s.  It’s all part of our six-concert season taking place July 23 – August 8, 2009 at venues in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.  Tickets go on sale March 15!

Inspired by British pub rock, R&B and soul, Huey Lewis and The News captured the spirit of the decade with songs including “Workin’ for a Livin’,” “I Want a New Drug,” “The Heart of Rock & Roll,” “Hip to be Square” and “Power of Love,” the Academy Award-nominated number one single from hit movie “Back to the Future.” Led by the vocals and hard-driving harmonica of Huey Lewis, the Grammy Award-winning group’s nine albums span 25 years of music, topped off by the 2005 release “Live at 25,” a celebration of the band’s legacy of music.  A highlight of their live show is their a cappella rendition of early rock n’ roll classics such as “Sixty Minute Man,” “Under The Boardwalk” and “It’s Alright.”

In August 2008 the band hit movie theaters with the title track for the movie “Pineapple Express,” featured at the start of the movie’s trailers and as the cornerstone of the soundtrack.  Listen here
