Boz Scaggs
Whether it's from the song "Lowdown," "Lido" or any of his current jazz tunes, you more than likely have heard the vocals of Boz Scaggs, owner of one of the most distinctive voices in popular music. Mr. Scaggs will bring his distinctive sound to Connecticut when he headlines The Ridgefield Playhouse annual "Start the Season" Gala on Sunday, September 13. The evening will begin with a reception, silent auction and Meet and Greet for VIP ticket holders at 5:30 p.m., followed by a spectacular show and live auction at 8 p.m.

The multi-dimensional Scaggs is probably best known for his 1976 album "Silk Degrees," which was one of the landmark pop titles of the decade. The album, which spawned several hit singles including "Lowdown," "Lido Shuffle," "Georgia ," "We're All Alone" and "It's Over," reached number 2 on the Billboard album chart and eventually sold over 4 million copies. That album also brought Scaggs a Grammy Award when "Lowdown" was voted Best R&B Song.

Scaggs went on to release "Middle Man" in 1980, which became his third consecutive platinum-selling title. Scaggs resurfaced in 1988 with "Other Roads," which contains the top 40 hit, "Heart of Mine." His current album, "Speak Low," was recorded in four days with the musicians playing live together in the same room. "Speak Low" oozes the spontaneous essence of torch song. It's romantic singing done casual and breezy.

Gala ticket pricing: $250 includes VIP seating, meet and greet, gala and performance; $175 includes gala and performance; $125 includes performance and one-hour open bar. Tables of 10 and corporate sponsorships are also available!
