One of the most visionary and inventive artist in music today, Moby, is rolling into Knoxville’s Civic Coliseum Saturday, July 20. Moby’s unique musical conception fuses traditional instruments and singing with state-of-the-art production, engineering technology and DJ wizardry. His impact on the international music scene has been enormous. Hailed as the king of techno, he draws inspiration from blues, jazz, gospel and rock n’ roll. Moby’s first claim to fame was the single “Go,” the theme song from the popular TV series Twin Peaks. Released in 1999, Play propelled him to the top of the charts with the hit single “South Side” featuring Gwen Stefani. His newest release, 18, builds on that success with a masterful mix of rhythm, soul and groove. It features guest appearances by Jennifer Price, MC Lyte, Angie Stone and Sinead O’Conner. Audiences should not miss this opportunity to hear creativity and imagination in the making.
TICKETS are $27.50 (plus service charges). Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 8 at all Tickets Unlimited outlets. To charge by phone, call (865) 656-4444.
The man behind modern blues, Keb’ Mo’ is coming to the Germantown Performing Arts Center in Germantown, TN. Keb’ Mo’ has won two Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary Blues Album for the albums Just Like You and Slow Down. He has also won three W.C. Handy Awards, the most distinguished award in the blues community. Like all four of his previous albums, Keb’ Mo’s newest release, The Door, has received an enormous amount of praise from fans and critics. Just as McKinley Morganfield became Muddy Waters, Kevin Moore became Keb’ Mo’. He grew up in South Central Los Angeles, and started playing guitar at age 12. His first big break was playing guitar for Papa John Creach, former violinist for Jefferson Starship. He worked as a staff writer for A&M records, and he arranged demos for Almo-Irving Music. After taking a hiatus to learn from blues masters like Bobby “Blue” Bland, Albert Collins, Big Joe Turner, Pee Wee Crayton and Jimmy Witherspoon, Kevin Moore returned to LA and became Keb’ Mo’, a street talk version of his own name. Come let Keb’ Mo’ take you back to those good old sounds of the Mississippi Delta Blues.
