As part of the spring edition of its AllStars series, the Acadiana Center for the Arts welcomes noted singer Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers tonight in Downtown Lafayette.
Proceeds from the Spring Allstars Gala help to support AcA's non-profit community work.
Bruce Hornsby has built one of the most diverse, collaborative and adventurous careers in contemporary music. Drawing from a vast wellspring of American musical traditions, the
singer/pianist/composer/bandleader has created a large and accomplished body of work and employed a vast array of stylistic approaches. Throughout this period, Hornsby has maintained the integrity, virtuosity and artistic curiosity that have been hallmarks of his work from the start.
Hornsby and his band The Range's first album The Way It Is (1986) was steadily and slowly building in popularity in the U.S. when in August the title track exploded on BBC Radio One in England, then Europe, the rest of the world and finally in the United States. The record went on to sell three million copies, the band played Saturday Night Live and opened for Steve Winwood, John Fogerty, Huey Lewis, the Grateful Dead and the Eurythmics before becoming headliners on their own tour supported by Crowded House.
The AcA AllStars with Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers begins at 7:30 p.m. at the AcA, located at 101 W. Vermilion St., in Downtown Lafayette. For ticket info, visit AcadianaCenterfortheArts.org.
