Boz Scaggs - The Memphis Tour
October 4, 8:00 PM, Casino Regina Show Lounge
Raised in small towns in Oklahoma and Texas, Boz Scaggs took up the guitar at age 13. William Royce “Boz” Scaggs started playing in bands during high school in Dallas in the 60s. Scaggs’ guitar and voice provided his self-described “ticket to ride.” He debuted with the album Boz Scaggs. Albums that followed included: Moments, Boz Scaggs and Band, My Time and Slow Dancer, and featured songs such as We Were Always Sweethearts, Dinah Flo, You Make It So Hard, and Slow Dancer.
Then came the multi-platinum 1975 release, Silk Degrees featuring hits like Lowdown, which won the Grammy Award for ‘Best R&B Song’, Lido Shuffle and What Can I Say. Following Silk Degrees was Down Two Then Left, Middle Man and Hits, a compilation that featured the as-yet-unrecorded Miss Sun and the song from the motion picture Urban Cowboy, Look What You’ve Done To Me.
In the 90s, he made an album of original material, Some Change, then the Grammy-nominated Come on Home, a collection of R&B classics and originals featuring a crack rhythm section with horns. Fade Into Light was his final release on Virgin Records and then came two albums of jazz standards. Boz Scaggs showcases both original songs and choice covers in his latest album, Memphis. He puts a distinctive touch on classics like Rainy Night in Georgia and Corinna Corinna.
