Bickford Theatre: Bucky Pizzarelli Birthday Party
January 8, 2018 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Don’t miss this annual birthday celebration for the Hall of Fame guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli whose credits range from Benny Goodman to Paul McCartney. Joining the legendary guitarist will be Ed Laub, his long-time bandmate, son Martin Pizzarelli on bass, and exciting surprise guests.
Bucky began his professional career at the age of 17 when he joined the Vaughn Monroe dance band in the early 1940s. He became a staff musician for NBC in the fifties and then became part of the famous Tonight Show Band on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in the sixties. During the sixties, he also worked as a studio musician and played on many of the rock ‘n roll hits of that era including those of Dion and the Belmonts, the Drifters, Ben E. King, and Ray Charles.
After nine decades of playing great music, Bucky may have slowed down a little bit but looks forward to this annual birthday party. Join us as we wish him a Happy 92nd!
