Michael Bolton is an American singer-songwriter, known for his soft rock ballads and tenor vocals. One of his first major hits was his 1987 interpretation of the Otis Redding classic, "(Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay." Always interested in soul and Motown classics, Bolton's success with that song encouraged him to tackle the standard "Georgia On My Mind," with which he had another hit. Throughout the eighties and nineties, Bolton continued to earn great success as a singer in the adult contemporary/easy listening genre.

Bolton has sung with greats such as Luciano Pavarotti and Ray Charles, written songs with Bob Dylan, and penned songs for megastars ranging from Barbara Streisand to KISS. Other achievements include selling 53 million albums, eight top ten albums, two number one singles on the Billboard charts, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and awards from both the American Music Awards and Grammy Awards. The well respected crooner continually breaks barriers and has proven himself to be one of the most soulful singers of our time.

Hootie And The Blowfish July 3

Live Nation presents the American rock band, Hootie and the Blowfish and special guests, the Drew Davis Band, on Thursday, July 3, at 8 p.m. Hootie and the Blowfish have recorded seven studio albums to date, and have charted 16 singles on various Billboard singles charts, including, "Hold My Hand," "Let Her Cry," "Only Wanna Be With You," and "Time."

Hootie and the Blowfish released their debut album, Cracked Rear View, in 1994. It was an instant success, ultimately going platinum 16 times in the U.S. and becoming the best-selling album of 1995. The following year, the band won the "Best New Artist" award at the 1996 Grammy Awards.

Hootie and the Blowfish went on to release four more albums and had a number of hit singles. One of their hits, "I Go Blind," was a cover of Canadian group 54-40's, and was used for the soundtrack to the TV series Friends. Some of their other hit singles include "Old Man and Me," "I Will Wait," "One Love," and "Hey Hey What Can I Do," a song written for the Encomium tribute album to Led Zeppelin.

The Drew Davis Band is an American country music group established in 2004. That year, the band competed in and won the Colgate Country Showdown, and shortly afterward, they released their self-titled debut EP. The band's debut single, "Back There All the Time," has entered the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

During this tour, Hootie and the Blowfish will be collecting school supplies to donate to school districts. Please remember to bring brand new school supplies to this event to help Hootie and the Blowfish and Live Nation support the Westbury School District.
