Event Details

Grammy Award-winner Boz Scaggs returns to The Playhouse! Best known for his 1970s hits “Lido Shuffle,” “Lowdown,” and others, Scaggs is touring behind his Grammy Award-nominated new album, Out of the Blues, returning to the genre that first sparked his five-decade musical career.

Scaggs joined the Steve Miller Band in 1967, performing on that group’s albums Children of the Future and Sailor, before launching his solo career with 1968’s seminal Boz Scaggs LP, recorded in Muscle Shoals, AL.Scaggs continued to mine a personalized mix of rock, blues and R&B influences, along with a signature style of ballads on such influential ’70s albums as MomentsBoz Scaggs & BandMy TimeSlow Dancer and 1976’s Silk DegreesSilk Degrees was followed by the albums Down Two Then Left and Middle Man, and such hit singles as “Breakdown Dead Ahead,” “Jo Jo” and “Look What You’ve Done to Me.” He returned to the studio after an 8-year hiatus and released, Other RoadsSome ChangeDig, the Grammy-nominated Come on Home, the unplugged Fade Into Light, the in-concert retrospective Greatest Hits Live as well as a stint touring with Donald Fagen’s New York Rock & Soul Review. A pair of albums of jazz standards, But Beautiful and Speak Low, the latter topping the Billboard Jazz chart, demonstrated Scaggs’ stylistic mastery, as did the Southern-flavored Memphis and the rhythm & bluesy A Fool to Care.

“Music has been a constant companion and I’m feeling more free with it than ever,” Scaggs comments. “I feel like I’ve found my voice through all these years, and I’ve gotten closer to where I want to be with my approach.”
