PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Foghat’s live performances show why the band is still around today and why they will be able to keep on rockin’ as long as they want. This band truly is timeless. Constant touring is part of their DNA and the band just loves to play. Their live show is as intense as ever with the incredible energy and musicianship that one would expect and hope for from a seasoned band with such a long musical history and they are bringing their fans along for the ride. Not content to rest on their laurels, the band
released a great new studio album in June 2016 titled “Under the Influence”, and another 'live' album in June of 2017 called 'Live at the Belly Up'. Both were given great reviews by press audience alike. To keep the ball rolling, they are planning to release a live DVD in 2018!



Foghat fans are everywhere and these days their audience consists of all ages. From the young kids who play Guitar Hero III and know all of the lyrics to ‘Slow Ride’, to the Dazed & Confused generation of 30-40 somethings and the ‘boomers’ who bought Foghat’s first vinyl or 8 track! Looking out at the audience and seeing all of the generations rockin’ to Foghat is very gratifying to the band. According to lead singer Charlie Huhn, “the band just wants to make sure that after every show, they are all convinced that they just got rocked, from the second we start the first song to the end of the show”.



Formed in 1971 when Lonesome Dave Peverett and Roger Earl left the British blues-rock band, Savoy Brown, Foghat has earned eight Gold records, one Platinum record and one Double-Platinum record. And they continue to release new music every few years. They have never stopped touring and recording although there have been several ups and downs and changes over the years. They sadly lost Lonesome Dave Peverett in 2000 and Rod Price in 2005, but Roger Earl kept banging & kicking to keep Foghat’s musical legacy going.



According to a recent review “The ’70s called...but there is no way in hell we are giving Foghat back to them. The iconic band from the past is rocking just as hard as they did decades ago, if not more! Foghat’s thunderous blend of blues, boogie and butt-kickin’ rock ‘n’ roll are shaking walls and fans everywhere. There is so much talent in this band it is ridiculous. Lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Charlie Huhn played with Ted Nugent, Gary Moore & Humble Pie, and lead/slide guitarist Bryan Bassett played with Wild Cherry and Molly Hatchet." Bass player Craig Macgregor who had been with the band since the ’70s, unfortunately became ill in 2015 and was unable to play. Craig recommended the very talented & personable Rodney O'Quinn as a 'fill-in' who came to Foghat via the Pat Travers band where he proved he knew how to lay down a solid groove. O'Quinn viewed MacGregor as a mentor and is a great permanent addition to the band. And on drums is the man we have to thank for keeping Foghat going...founding member Roger Earl, who's positive attitude and solid drumming style and pure joy of playing has been an inspiration to all.”



If Foghat had only given us ‘Slow Ride’, the band’s place in rock history would be secure. But the band is so much more than that. As stated by Roger Earl, “we are still a ‘work in progress’, writing and recording, and plan to be until the day we depart this earth”!
