If you’re into rock and roll, you inevitably have heard of the rock super group West Bruce Jr. and Laing, an offshoot of the 1970’s group Mountain, which featured Leslie West, Corky Laing and Jack Bruce of Cream. And, if you’re into rock and roll, you probably also like guitars and really great motorcycles…you might even like Howard Stern. Well, on January 28th, you’ll have it all at The Ridgefield Playhouse. Not only do you get a great rock show featuring West, Bruce Jr. and Laing (Jack’s son Malcolm is filling his dad’s shoes), but each ticket buyer is automatically entered to win a signed Leslie West signature series Dean guitar or a Harley Davidson motorcycle, courtesy of Harley Davidson of Danbury, for a week (you must have a valid motorcycle license to win this.) And, if that wasn’t enough, you also get two other great bands – the guys from Orange County Choppers will be here with their band, as Fred Norris, of Howard Stern fame, along with his band King Norris! This rock evening like no other is sponsored by i95 The Home of Rock ‘n’ Roll and starts at 8 p.m.

When West Bruce Jr. and Laing toured together, the trio released two studio albums, 1972's “Why Dontcha” and 1973's “Whatever Turns You On.” They disbanded shortly before the release of their live, and most successful, album “Live 'n' Kickin'” in 1974. West, Bruce Jr. & Laing will perform songs from those albums plus songs from Cream and Mountain. Malcolm Bruce, a seasoned instrumentalist and the son of Jack Bruce, has been well received as his father’s stand-in for the band. And, every ticket holder who attends the concert that night will automatically be entered into a raffle to win a signed signature Les West guitar. Leslie himself will announce the winner from the stage of the Playhouse!

When the stars of American Chopper aren’t filming their TV show, they’re practicing with their band -- Orange County Choppers - The Band. And, boy they can play! Kicking off the evening will be Fred Norris’s band King Norris. Norris has been a fixture on the Howard Stern show for more than 30 years. A college student at the time, Norris first met Howard Stern while working the overnight shifts at WCCC, on FM and AM radio station in Hartford, Connecticut in the spring of 1979.

So, whether it’s for the music, to meet your favorite radio or TV celebrity or just for a chance to win the Leslie West guitar or Harley Davidson bike, January 28th is a night for the rocker in all of us!
