Poco
Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 7 pm
DESCRIPTION

For more than 50 years, Poco's distinctive harmonies and stellar musicianship helped define the sound of country-rock. Still led by the band co-founder and multi-instrumentalist who wrote and sang their biggest hits, they are a dedicated unit of four formidable songwriters, vocalists, arrangers and players who hit stages coast-to-coast armed with the kind of classic songs and instrumental chops that puts performers half their age to shame.

In other words, Poco today is a band reborn.

"Poco has a history unmatched by any band," says co-founder Rusty Young. "We've always been formed by individually unique artists. It's fate that the four of us came together, and it's a process of evolution that we've become a better and better band." Poco is Young (steel and acoustic guitars, dobro, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Jack Sundrud (bass, vocals), Lex Browning (mandolin, guitars, vocals) and Rick Lonow (drums, vocals). "We're so in tune with each other musically and personally," Young says, "that I consider us to be one of the very best bands that Poco has ever had."

"We don't feel like a 50-year old band," Rusty Young says with pride. "Poco has never slowed down or stopped making new music. Everyone loves the challenge of being in Poco, and we're all working hard at moving the band towards new audiences. We love playing for people who haven't heard Poco in a while - or are maybe hearing them for the first time - and having them discover who Poco is today."

For Poco, this is more than just a time of rebirth. On record and onstage, it's the sound of a legendary band once again hitting its stride.
