John Hiatt and His Combo Saturday, October 6th 8pm at the Calvin Theatre
"Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns" is John Hiatt's 20th solo album and one of his best. Produced by Kevin "Caveman" Shirley (Silverchair, Aerosmith, Joe Bonamassa), Hiatt's timeless songwriting is paired with the aggressive blues guitar, trademark grungey vocals, and the unique ability to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds The first single, "Damn This Town," is classic Hiatt: A rough-edged story with beautiful musicianship filled with raw emotion. "Don't Wanna Leave You Now" shows Hiatt's softer and tender side as he croons on about love. "Detroit Made" is about the Deuce and a Quarter car made by Buick. He closes the album with "When New York Had Her Heart Broke," a touching and dignified recollection of the tragedy of 9/11. Hiatt's touring combo is Kenny Blevins on drums, Patrick O'Hearn on bass and Doug Lancio on guitars.

On the heels of an insanely great show this past weekend at Mountain Park where they proved beyond any doubt that there is not and could never be a better Led Zeppelin tribute band, we've inked anothere show with them to kick off the new year. The songs remain impressively the same. Hammer as they might, other Led Zeppelin cover bands are over the hills and far away compared to Get The Led Out, Jimmy Page's handpicked favorite Zep tribute band. (He booked them for a private fundraiser for his charity.) Get The Led Out is a group of professional musicians who are passionate about their love of the music of Led Zeppelin. It's been their mission to bring the studio recordings of the mighty Zep to life on the big concert stage. Much as the Fab Faux represent the MUSIC of the Beatles, not their live show or physical attributes, GTLO is focused on the recorded versions of the music of Led Zeppelin.This is not an impersonator act but a group of musicians who were fans first, striving to do justice to one of the greatest bands in rock history. The others may aspire but they are trampled underfoot by Get The Led Out. They have an uncanny presence and will leave you dazed and delightfully confused
Tickets for all four show are on sale this Friday, July 27th at Northampton Box Office, 76 Main Street, 413 586 8686 and online at IHEG.com.
