WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tommy Shaw's fans know that he is a member of STYX, he used to be in DAMN YANKEES, he recorded four solo albums and another one in 1995("Hallucination") with his DY colleague and NIGHT RANGER bassist/singer Jack Blades. INFLUENCE is the duo's first album since their recently re-released 1995 debut, HALLUCINATION. Like the debut--and unlike their history-carving decades as icons in the more hard-rock minded Styx, Night Ranger and Damn Yankees--the latest release is rooted in acoustic guitar and organic production, harvesting a decade of musical influences into 11 tracks (on which Blades and Shaw played all the music except for drums and the occasional keyboards). With classics from the '60s and '70s including the Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreamin'," Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth" and Steely Dan's "Dirty Work," INFLUENCE offers a track-by-track chronology of the musical era that helped define modern rock. $10 per person Food & Beverage minimum
