Foghat concert - Albany River Rhythms Summer Concert Series

  • August 8, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The show starts at 7pm.  I've never been to these concerts, but I've heard they are very popular.  We may need to meet earlier.  I believe it's a free concert, but they suggest donating when they "pass the hat" to help make the summer series possible.

In the late 1960’s Roger Earl & Lonesome Dave Peverett first toured America as members of the seminal British band “Savoy Brown”. Together with guitarist Kim Simmonds, “Savoy Brown” was on the cutting edge of the emerging British blues-rock scene, and they influenced countless musicians on both sides of the “pond”. In 1971, wanting to give a more Rock ‘n Roll flavor to the blues-boogie music they were playing with “Savoy”, Dave & Roger enlisted lead/slide guitarist Rod Price & bassist Tony Stevens, formed a new band, “Foghat”, and the rest is part of Rock and Roll history.

The last few years has Foghat reaching a whole new generation of fans largely as a result of their incessant touring and also due to its songs appearing on such popular home video games as Guitar Hero III, numerous movies such as ‘Dazed & Confused’, ‘Wild Hogs’, ‘Bottle Shock’ and ‘Halloween II’, numerous TV shows and ads such as Honda among others.

Foghat has never stopped touring and recording. The 2010 version of Foghat comprised of Roger Earl, Craig MacGregor, Charlie Huhn, and Bryan Bassett has been together for 10 years since the passing of Lonesome Dave. They continue to tour relentlessly because they just love to play and after every show they go out to meet their fans. They still epitomize that classic blues-rock slide guitar sound and that is what Foghat is all about. IT’S ABOUT THE MUSIC!

    Ok I'm leaving my car at the trolley parking lot (At Home Furniture Parking Lot, free) before 5 and catching the trolley at 5 p.m. with my folding chair. I'm wearing a black and white sunhat, come if you can.

    This event needs a host to organize the meeting place/time. If no one is willing to step up please consider this just an fyi on the group's calendar.

    Um, is this "THE" Foghat, the group from the 70's??? If so, I'm really surprised it's "donation" only!! If not, could someone let me know who the band is that will be playing "Foghat" music?? Thanks!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
