Dennis Quaid and The Sharks
Saturday, July, 14, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$75
Dennis Quaid is not just another actor turned rock star, he is a rock star. As the lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Quaid and the band perform original songs and classic hits such as “Spill the Wine”, “Gloria”, and many more. The band even throws in a Jerry Lee Lewis song or two in the mix, such as “Great Balls of Fire,” which Quaid has firsthand experience performing, having played “The Killer” in a 1989 biopic. The band’s origins can be traced to one night when Quaid went to see actor Harry Dean Stanton and his longtime band (appropriately named the Harry Dean Stanton Band) perform at an L.A. club. Quaid was invited to join the band onstage. At first reluctant because of his decade-long layoff from music, Quaid finally did perform with the band and was successful enough that Jamie James, also a member of Stanton’s band, approached Quaid about starting a group of their own. James quickly began recruiting others for the band and it wasn’t long before Dennis Quaid & the Sharks, which specializes in “rock ‘n’ roll and country-soul,” was performing at L.A. clubs.
Kicking off the night is Eliot Lewis. As an independent, multi-instrumentalist Lewis has built a unique career most musicians could only dream of. As a solo artist, he consistently performs and releases his own brand of guitar featured rock and soul. He is also the only musician to appear on every episode of the hugely popular “Live From Daryl’s House” show. Eliot also performs with the most successful duo of all time, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Daryl Hall & John Oates on tour. Eliot has worked with some of the biggest artists in the music business including Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Walsh, Todd Rundgren, Train, Grace Potter, Ben Folds, Booker T, Jewel, Rob Thomas, Keb Mo, Jason Mraz, Darius Rucker, Gavin DeGraw, just to name a few. He has also performed on some of the most prestigious stages all over the world including the legendary Hollywood Bowl and Japan’s Budokan Arena, as well as on The Voice, Conan O’Brien, Today Show, The View, Jimmy Kimmel and many others.
