XEB (ORIGINAL FORMER MEMBERS OF THIRD EYE BLIND) PERFORMING THE BEST OF 3EB

XEB brings together ex original members of Third Eye Blind. Kevin Cadogan, Tony Fredianelli and Arion Salazar’s contributions span 17 years of the band’s history.

Cadogan, who was a signatory to Third Eye Blind’s Elektra record deal, performed lead guitar and composed the music to 10 of the 14 songs on 3eb’s 1997 Self Titled debut album which sold 6x platinum. Cadogan also composed the music to 6 songs on 3eb’s 2x platinum selling sophomore album ‘Blue’ including the fan favorite “Wounded”.
Cadogan has been hailed as a Master Innovator by Guitar Player Magazine and toured from ’96-’99 performing his co-authored radio hits “How’s It Going To Be”, “Graduate”,
and “Losing A Whole Year”.

In San Francisco 1993/94, they wrote and performed under the name Third Eye Blind until Fredianelli exited the band that same year, but not before contributing musical production elements to songs on the debut such as “Motorcycle Drive By” and the hit “Semi Charmed Life”. Fredianelli later contributed his signature backing vocals and guitar, ushering in a new sound for Third Eye Blind that carried through the fourth
album. Fredianelli composed the music to many songs on the certified gold album ‘Out Of The Vain’. His co-authored radio hits include “Blinded”, “Non-Dairy Creamer” and 2009’s “Bonfire” from the #1 selling album ‘Ursa Major’.

Grammy nominated Bassist and composer Arion Salazar co-wrote many songs (credited and un-credited) throughout the band’s career including the hit “Never Let You Go” along with other fan favorites spanning the bands career. Salazar is credited as a producer on Third Eye Blind’s ‘Blue’ and ‘Out Of The Vein’ albums and is known for his signature use of double/effected bass tracking and vintage keyboards.

Headlining over 100 shows each year and a regular on the festival circuit since forming in 2009, Delta Rae’s larger-than-life performances have earned coveted spots at Bonnaroo, Tortuga Music Festival, Austin City Limits, Firefly, Bumbershoot, Summerfest, Hangout Fest, Kaaboo, Basilica, VOODOO, and Lollapalooza. They have received national attention with features in NPR, Washington Post, and New York Times, in addition to late night television performances and inclusion in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. Delta Rae were recently named One to Watch in 2018 by Billboard, CMT & Rolling Stone.

Few local performers will promise, much less deliver, a night of rock, blues, soul, country, and rhythm & blues, and have all of it keep you on the dance floor from the minute you walk into the club. But when Johnny Artis sings -no matter what he sings – you can’t sit still! Not only is he gifted with a precious voice which has yet to encounter a note it can’t hit, he also has a knack for reading his audience, and choosing from his limitless repertoire the songs that’ll keep everyone dancing and dancing. Keeping the dance-fest going, in fact, appears to be his top priority, and Johnny Artis takes big chances to see that his audience is entertained.

ZEPPELIN & COMPANY
Oct 12 @ 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm
ZEPPELIN & COMPANY

In January of 1974 Led Zeppelin and manager Peter Grant conceived Swan Song Records. Partially because their contract with Atlantic Records had expired at the end of 1973, but also to provide a conduit for other acts to record albums without having to deal with all the red tape that was inevitable with the large record labels.

Bad Company had also just formed in 1973, and lead singer and front man Paul Rodgers was searching for a management company. Through the mutual connection of former Free road manager Clive Coulson, a connection was made that would forever tie Led Zeppelin and Bad Company together.

And by June of 1974 the first band to release an album on Swan Song Records was Bad Company. Through the height of the 70’s and into the early 80’s both bands were managed by Peter Grant. All told both bands would eventually release a combined 11 albums under the label.

The band Shooting Star was conceived out of a desire to form a tribute band that would pay homage to Bad Company. There seemed to be lack of attention paid to a band that had achieved such greatness throughout the 70’s. It was quickly evident that Bad Company’s library of hits was simply not large enough to pull off a typical 4 hour performance required of cover/tribute bands.

After some soul searching the idea was hatched to morph Shooting Star into a Bad Company/Led Zeppelin tribute band. That idea has since been very popular with the crowds, and subsequently due to the overwhelming popularity of the Zepp songs, the band name was changed to Zeppelin & Company.

Zeppelin & Company is on their way to becoming one of the premiere tribute bands in the MD/DC area by combining the songs of two legendary bands into one show. Do not miss a chance to see this band.
