Kenny Loggins Making Westbury Tour Stop
Versatile American singer/songwriter Kenny Loggins will take the stage at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Sunday, July 29 at 8 p.m. Special.
Kenny Loggins has been many things to many people over the past three decades – “a moving target” as he’s put it. In his time, Loggins has been a guitar-slinger with a psychedelic rock band, a hot young songwriter with a publishing deal, half of a legendary country-rock duo, a massively successful and accomplished solo artist, a sonic pioneer in the smooth jazz genre, a reigning soundtrack superstar, a rocker, as well as an enduring recording artist and live performer. His hits, early on as half of Loggins and Messina and then as a solo artist, include “Danny’s Song,” “House at Pooh Corner,” “Your Mama Don’t Dance,” “Angry Eyes,” “Whenever I Call You Friend (with Stevie Nicks) and “This Is It.” In the ’80s, Loggins became more famous than ever as the king of the movie theme songs, thanks to massive smashes like “I’m Alright” (from Caddyshack), “Footloose” (from Footloose), “Danger Zone” (from Top Gun), and “Nobody’s Fool” (from Caddyshack II). Georgia Middleman, Gary Burr and Kenny Loggins are Blue Sky Riders. After working with Gary Burr on his album, How About Now (2007), Loggins called Burr one of Nashville’s most accomplished writers and asked him if he’d like to form a band. Then he suggested they look for a third, female voice. Burr suggested Georgia Middleman and the Blue Sky Riders became a reality. All three sing lead amid three-part harmonies. They are currently in the final stages of recording their debut album.
