Ronnie Laws Comes To Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia For Two Shows
Jazz saxophonist Ronnie Laws comes to the Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia for two shows on July 3rd. Philly singer Ty "TheGuy" Ward opens the show, with Grammy Winner Cee Knowledge hosting. Tickets are $30 ( $65 for VIP access) at www.ticketfly.com.
Tickets are $30 in advance online via Ticketfly.com or $35 at the door. The VIP Package is $65 and includes: early VIP entry, first choice of seating, a meet and greet session with Ronnie Laws, and a free Ronnie Laws CD.
A native of Houston, Texas, Laws is the third in a famous line of four musicians that include his classically trained Jazz flautist brother, Hubert, and his vocalist sisters, Eloise and Debra. After a stint with R&B giants Earth Wind & Fire, Laws developed as a proven natural at combining the exploratory heart of Jazz with the broader reaching strains of Soul and Pop music. His first hit, "Always There" was one of the most popular, sax-driven, cross-over hits of the 70's Jazz-Funk Fusion era. He ushered in the sensualization of the soprano sax with Quiet Storm gems such as "Grace", "Karmen", and "Just Love". Pressure Sensitive, Fever, and Friends and Strangers (Blue Note 1978), the title track of his third album, all propelled to gold status.
The Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia is located at 12th and Market Streets in Center City. Doors open at 6:30pm for the 7PM show and 9:00pm for the 9:30 show. Discounted parking is available. For more information, contact the Hard Rock Cafe at (215) 238-1000.
