GCA FY17

MIGUEL BOSE
GCA FY17
MIGUEL BOSE
Miguel Bosé has been a force in Latin music in a career that has spanned dozens of albums and film roles, his own television show, and work as a theater director. The son of an actress (Lucia Bosè) and a bullfighter (Luis Miguel Dominguín), Bosé grew up in the arts, with Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway among his family friends. Defying the contemporary formula for pop success, this Latin Grammy Award winner’s music has been described as a global fusion of many musical influences. At the center of this is all the passion and expression of a Latin artist, and Miguel Bosé has constantly incorporated more diverse musical elements than many of the genre's crossover pop stars—while performing across the Americas and in Europe. Among his many, many hits, “Amante Bandido,” released in 1984, still receives radio airplay today!

SF SCOTTISH FIDDLERS
GCA FY17
SF SCOTTISH FIDDLERS
Picture a stage filled with more than 100 fiddlers backed by piano, drums, cellos, guitars, harps and even flutes. Now imagine a group that creates such a two-way sense of fun and joy between musicians and audience that people spontaneously move in their seats in response to the jigs and reels pouring forth from the stage. Front this merry group of music-makers with Scottish master fiddler Alasdair Fraser, whose humor, passion and charismatic playing set the tone, and you’ll have a rough idea what it’s like to attend a concert with The San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers: an evening packed with tunes, songs, and dances.

RAVE ON! THE BUDDY HOLLY EXPERIENCE
GCA FY17
RAVE ON! THE BUDDY HOLLY EXPERIENCE
RAVE ON! THE BUDDY HOLLY EXPERIENCE. This performance breathes new life into the music of Buddy Holly with an electrifying, high-energy rock 'n roll extravaganza featuring America's premiere Holly interpreter, Billy McGuigan. McGuigan is a dead ringer for Holly who played the part in more than 400 performances of "Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story," a role he originated. Backed by the tight Rave On Band, McGuigan dives head first into "Peggy Sue," "Raining in My Heart," "It's So Easy," "That'll Be the Day," "True Love Ways" and of course, "Rave On." And in a unique twist, Billy as 'Buddy' pays homage to his fellow rockers Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper!

We delighted to bring Dave back with his quartet for an all-Goodman program to include classics such as “Moonglow,” “I've Got Rhythm,” “Sing Sing Sing,” “Let's Dance,” “Don't Be That Way,” “Stompin’ at the Savoy” and more! Dave is an authentic musical prodigy (totally self-taught) who brings Goodman's music to life with incredible technique, style, beauty of tone and naturalness. His stage presence, knowledge of Goodman, and his penchant for wire-rim glasses, spats and double-breasted suits, transports listeners back in time!
