Bootsy Collins & Worldwide Funk Drive
Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts

Bootsy Collins & Worldwide Funk Drive

August 20, 2017

Bootsy Collins is the man who put bass in your face - the original funk 'n' roll wild child, the Godzilla-toned high minister of the all-powerful "one," a sly dog who - with his trademark psychedelic stovepipe, knee-high platform boots, and star-studded bass guitars - makes the Cat in the Hat look tame. Inspired by Jimi Hendrix and tutored by no less an authority on the big beat than James Brown, Collins has stomped his way through the last 40 years of music history and lived the high life. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with the other members of Parliament-Funkadelic. Having collaborated with scores of artists, including Ice Cube, Steve Jordan, Bernie Worrell, Bela Fleck, George Duke, and Buckethead, and contributed to numerous classic recordings like Deee-Lite's "Groove is in the Heart," Fatboy Slim's "Weapon of Choice" (for which he won a Grammy Award), and cuts by Snoop Dogg, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eddie Kramer, Buddy Miles, and more, what has Collins learned over the course of his career? "What all of this - my music, my life - is about, is liberty," Collins explains. "It's about pursuing the sounds and ideas and things that you believe in and that you feel. The best music urges you to open your mind and your heart and take a bigger look at the world and what you can bring to it."

She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists' recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.  Harris is known as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing. Admired through her career for her talent as an artist and song connoisseur, Harris shook up country radio in the 1970s, and established herself as the premiere songwriter of a generation selling more than 15 million records and garnering 13 Grammy Awards (this year she and Rodney Crowell won the Grammy for "Best Americana album"), three CMA Awards, and two Americana Awards

Robert Cray Band

June 6, 2017

Blues legend Robert Cray is returning to Annapolis – this time he and his band will be at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts! Cray's smooth, seductive vocal phrasing and rhythmic R&B stylings have earned him a reputation as a modern blues poet. His signature blend of rhythm and blues, pop, rock, soul, and traditional blues have made him a standout, prompting Guitar Player Magazine to declare: "Cray is not only making great music, he's making history." Cray's Grammy-winning 1986 album Strong Persuader made him a leader of the '80s blues resurgence alongside Stevie Ray Vaughan and The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and propelled hits "Smoking Gun" and "Right Next Door (Because of Me)" onto the charts the year of its release. He followed that success with his next Grammy winner, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (1988), which featured the hit single of the same name.

He supported Eric Clapton on his 2006-2007 world tour, even performing with Clapton on backup guitar for the Cream song "Crossroads". And in 2011, Cray was inducted to the Blues Hall of Fame. Rams Head Promotions is very excited and honored to welcome him back to Annapolis!

Little Feat

Little Feat

May 28, 2017

Little Feat is one of rock n’ roll’s best live bands ever. That statement has been reinforced and documented both by fans and journalists alike for decades. In 40 years of touring, concert-goers are continually mesmerized by six exceptional musicians who tear it up collectively and individually, with both verve and instrumental prowess night after night. Their songs cross many genres: rock, the blues; jazz fusion; and a unique brand of southern rock with simmering acoustic interludes and a healthy dash of Cajun funk thrown in. Little Feat remains a viable force in rock, touring regularly, mixing it up nightly and continuing to produce new and vital music. This band still harnesses the passion, creativity and excitement that embodies its definitive works and remains the quintessential rock band it has always been.
