A long time friend of the show, Huey Lewis and his band have been the focus of a few featured episodes of Dirty Water TV when their tour brought them to Boston.
Huey Lewis and The News are truly one of America’s great rock & roll bands. As they enter their 38th year together, their contagious brand of music has outlasted countless trends, and is as fresh today as ever. Formed from two rival Bay Area bands in 1979, they continue to thrill audiences worldwide, selling over 20 million albums in the process, earning them the right to mark their place on the pop history map.
These Grammy Award winners have written and performed such classic Top Ten Hits as “Heart of Rock & Roll”, “Stuck With You”, “I Want A New Drug”, “If This Is It”, “Hip To Be Square” “Do You Believe In Love” and “Workin’ For A Livin”. The group also wrote and performed “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” for the hit film Back To The Future. “The Power of Love”, nominated for an Academy Award, went to #1 on Billboard’s singles chart, and was a smash hit worldwide.
THE Legendary STOMPERS – who celebrate their 40th Anniversary this year – have long been recognized for their raucous live shows, kept alive for four decades by a spirited legion of dedicated fans! THE STOMPERS played their first live show in 1977. Their music appears in the John Sayles film ‘Return of the Secaucus Seven’, the cult classic ‘Fraternity Vacation’, as well as Adam Sandler’s ‘Grown Ups’ and ‘Grown Ups 2’. Their radio hits include “Never Tell an Angel” from their 1983 LP on Boardwalk records, along with “American Fun”, “Coast to Coast”, “Rock, Jump & Holler”, “Eastside Girl” and “One Heart for Sale” from the 1984 Polygram LP. THE STOMPERS’ mission has always been to lift the spirit, shake the body and spread the mighty jubilation that is rock ‘n roll! Keeping that tradition alive and kicking for four decades now, the band continues to deliver the whole barn-burnin’ roof-raisin’ foot-stompin’ rock ‘n roll church to sellout audiences everywhere!!
JAMIE KENT – Recently named by Rollingstone.com as an “Artist You Need To Know“, and dubbed a “rising country star” by Fox & Friends, one might say the future of Jamie Kent looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern country rock artists like Jason Isbell and Will Hoge, as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good.
