An Evening With Jesse Colin Young
with special guest Jazzie Young
About the Event
Jesse Colin Young has influenced and shaped the character of American music for over 50 years. The artist had a serious solo career showcasing his vocals and guitar work with 2 records before he formed his folk-rock band, The Youngbloods, in 1965. The band made 5 records on RCA and 5 records on Warner Brothers before Jesse went on to make 16 more records in his expansive solo career. His style is now considered Americana, but in fact it’s his unique fusion of folk, rock, jazz, and blues, with an emphasis on his extraordinary voice, that makes his signature sound.
The Youngblood’s version of “Get Together” has been heard by millions, from the Forrest Gump soundtrack, Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore, Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas, The Simpsons “Oh Brother where Bart thou” and “Tree of Horror II”, and South Park’s “Smug Alert” to numerous commercial spots, including one for the 1995 Super Bowl. “Darkness, Darkness,” written by Jesse, was in Jack the Bear, chosen as the theme song for the James Cameron movie Ghosts of the Abyss, and was in the trailer of TV series Bloodline. A cover of the song by Robert Plant won the GRAMMY® for Best Rock Vocal in 2002. Many still cover it today.
His most recent poignant and compelling work, Dreamers (released on BMG in 2019), saw Young exploring a wide array of musical styles blazing country-rock, exhilarating folk, Cajun waltz, neo-blues, and Celtic grooves on 14 new originals that include some of the singer’s most deeply personal lyrics with other cuts that cast a critical eye at the state of the world today. Dreamers is on multiple digital formats, including iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play and Spotify, as well as CD and Vinyl.
