Boz Scaggs brings tour to the Saenger Theatre
PENSACOLA, Fla. –Boz Scaggs will perform on the Saenger Theatre stage on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for this performance are $60 and $50 (plus applicable service charge) and go on sale Friday, July 31, at 10 a.m. at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone by calling 800-745-3000, or online at Ticketmaster.com.
Fans who have followed Boz Scaggs’ remarkable career dating back to the late Sixties with the Steve Miller Band; his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976) and Middle Man (1980); and the splendid assurance of late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001), will instantly recognize Scaggs’ characteristically deft touch as a singer. He brings a sly drawl to a funky workout like Li’l Millet and the Creoles’ “Rich Woman,” a conversational intimacy to Bobby Charles’s “Small Town Talk,” and an elegant delicacy to the Impressions’ “I’m So Proud.” He easily negotiates the Latin flavoring of “Last Tango on 16th Street” and “I Want to See You,” both written by San Francisco bluesman (and longtime Scaggs compatriot) Jack Walroth. His soul is effortless and deeply felt, never making a show of itself, but unmistakably evident in every lyric he delivers.
