June is Huey! 

Do you believe in love?  Do you believe it’s true?
 
Huey Lewis believes in love.  And we believe in love for Huey Lewis.  Join us on Wednesday June 3rd at Martyrs and Friday June 5th at Wire, as Tributosaurus becomes Huey Lewis and The News. 
 
They came together out of a fertile San Francisco blues-rock scene, and several members of the band had once backed up Van Morrison.  Huey’s first band, Clover, went to London for a while and ended up backing Elvis Costello’s for his first album, “My Aim Is True.”
 
Huey's “Picture This” went gold in 1982, and then he and The News eventually ruled large portions of the 80’s.  If you were alive in ’85 and didn’t own “Sports,” you must have been working really hard to avoid it.
 
Stop avoiding it.  You want a new drug.  Your heart of rock and roll is still beating.  And yes, this is it.
 
From the self-titled debut album in 1980 through their Doo Wop homage in the mid 90’s, Huey and the News made records that have sold in excess of 30 million copies.  Their live shows were huge parties, often featuring the Tower of Power horn section (including our own “Mayor,” Mike Cichowicz!).
 
We’ve talked about becoming Huey for years…sometimes tongue in cheek.  But the truth is, so many of Huey’s tunes are flat out awesome, and his band is full of top notch musicians.  We’ll be a big group with the Paleolithic Horns in tow this month, stretching out our rock/soul/R&B/bar band chops with joy.
 
Come bask in the power of love.
