Jeff Slate & Friends: Bob Dylan 75th Birthday Bash at Hill Country Live
New York's premiere BBQ joint hosts a celebration of Bob Dylan's life and music on the legend's 75th birthday with music provided by NYC rocker Jeff Slate and his all-star band
Jeff Slate and his all-star band - featuring musicians who have played with some of the greatest roots rockers of all time - return to Hill Country Live! with an evening of stellar music, including hits and deep cuts from Bob Dylan, his fellow Wilburys, Tom Petty, George Harrison, and Roy Orbison, plus fan favorites from Jeff's Dylan-inspired catalog of original music.
In 2012 Jeff debuted his solo album Birds of Paradox to sold out crowds around New York City. Since then he has toured, released Imposters & Attractions, a new album of original music inspired Elvis Costello, as well as an all-star version of The Kinks' "Big Sky" on a tribute album to the late Kinks bass player Pete Quaife, and written extensively about some of music's biggest names for Esquire, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. In February 2014 and March 2015 Jeff was a featured performer with his Birds of Paradox band at the Fest For Beatles Fans here in New York, where he will perform again in April 2016. In May 2014 he made his Hill Country Live! debut with his Dylan Obscura show, playing a set full of songs that Dylan himself has never recorded or even played live, gems he rarely plays in concert and some of his best but least known songs, as well as original music inspired by Dylan, to a packed house. He's returned regularly with stellar, packed shows.
Jeff's new album, Secret Poetry, featuring performances by Earl Slick, Laurence Juber, Steve Holley, Carlos Alomar and many more is out April 22nd.
