BRUCE HORNSBY & THE NOISEMAKERS
June 1, 2023 at the Appell Center for the Performing Arts
Bruce Hornsby returns to the Appell Center for the first time since 2018 in this one night only appearance with The Noisemakers, singing his greatest hits and fan favorites alongside new songs off his most recent recording, ’Flicted. Based out of Williamsburg, VA, Hornsby first rose to national prominence with The Way ItIs, his 1986 Grammy-winning debut album with The Range. The title track became the most-played song on American radio in 1987. Tupac Shakur’s timeless song “Changes” builds on “The Way It Is” and set the stage for many subsequent versions of the track. In 1991 Hornsby collaborated with Bonnie Raitt, playing on her iconic hit “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” Hornsby was also a part-time member of the Grateful Dead from September 1990 to March 1992, performing over 100 concerts in America and Europe. The 13-time Grammy nominee has solidified his status as a highly sought-after collaborator. Hornsby’s own 23 albums have sold over 11 million copies worldwide, and he has appeared on over 100 records including releases with Bob Dylan, Don Henley, the Grateful Dead, Stevie Nicks, Ricky Skaggs, Bob Seger, Chaka Khan, Bon Iver, Brandon Flowers, Bonnie Raitt, Sting, Mavis Staples, Willie Nelson and more.
