Huey Lewis & The News
Bluesville at Horseshoe Tunica
“Heart and Soul”, the title of one of their hit songs, also explains the enduring appeal of Huey Lewis & The News. For over thirty years they have been making and performing music that resonates with people at their core. Whether it is their singing about the daily grind in “Workin' For A Livin'” or lamenting a troubled relationship in “If This Is It”, this is a band that connects with people on a gut level.
In addition to commiserating over life's rough spots, they have also given their millions of worldwide fans a soundtrack for the celebration of life's great moments. The driving rhythm of “Heart of Rock & Roll” sings the praises of the great music being made across the US, while “Stuck With You” offers a love song with a tongue-in-cheek turn of phrase and amazing harmonies. Meanwhile “The Power of Love”, which the band wrote for the hit film “Back To The Future”, not only went to #1 on the Billboard singles chart, but also was nominated for an Academy Award.
As great as their recordings are, there is something extra special about the Huey Lewis & The News live shows. Frontman Huey Lewis' voice has a rich, textured quality that lends itself well to not just their hits but also to the Memphis soul tunes they covered on their most recent album, “Soulsville”. And Lewis brings some bluesy tones to the performance when he breaks out into his harmonica solos.
Huey Lewis & The News have a love of music that comes through in everything they do. Be it their albums, their live performances, or the way they interact with their fans, they are a band with heart and soul.
