You want rock n’ roll history and a real good time, all wrapped up in the honeyed sound of piano? Say no more. The Beachland presents to you one Mr. Leon Russell, who after 55 years in the music biz as a session man and songwriter might know a thing or two about tunes. We’re talking all kinds of tunes from rock’s young bawling and brawling days, to the classic 60s and 70s of which Russell was so actively a part. Tonight’s concert will feature Russell pulling from that storied compendium of tunes -- music that’s near and dear to his heart -- as well as his own songs. If you aren’t hip to Leon, here’s your chance. If you need to get hip to Leon’s wondrous musical odyssey, read up on the bio of this Rock Hall inductee. NYC-based Riley Ethridge Jr. is touring along with Leon Russell in support of his excellent new album, The Straight And Narrow Way, a collection of “funky Americana”.
