“An Intimate Evening With Gregg Rolie”

Co-Founder of Santana & Journey

CD Release Concert

Friday, September 30, 2011

Poor David’s Pub





Gregg Rolie, co-founder of two multi-platinum super groups, Santana and Journey, makes a unique solo appearance on Friday, September 30th at Poor David's Pub in Dallas. This special performance is in celebration of his new solo EP, "Five Days". Gregg, along with his special guest, Austin blues guitarist Alan Haynes, will be playing selections from the new EP along with many old favorites. He'll share stories from his 40-plus year career and answer questions from the audience during the show. After his performance, there will be a meet-and-greet with the audience and Gregg will be available for pictures and autographs.


Gregg Rolie is the voice behind the classic Santana hits "Black Magic Woman", "Evil Ways", and "Oye Como Va". In 1998, this world-class musician, writer, producer was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as the lead vocalist of the Santana band. After four albums with Santana, Gregg joined a new band in 1973 with ex-Santana guitarist Neal Schon - Journey. As Journey's keyboardist, lead vocalist and co-lead vocalist throughout the rest of the 70's, Gregg helped co-write and produce that band's first seven albums. "Feeling That Way", "Anytime", and "Just The Same Way" were all memorable songs from that period of Gregg's career.


Just released in 2011, "Five Days" is Gregg’s latest EP/CD consisting of six songs with Gregg playing acoustic piano and singing live. He recorded these tracks in his living room on the piano given to him by his father in the early days of Santana, and as Gregg says, “it’s from my house to yours”. He gives beautiful new renditions of two classic hits that he sang as the lead singer in Santana – “Black Magic Woman” and Journey – “Anytime” – as well as four new songs, his own compositions through solo voice and piano. Recently featured on the cover of the UK’s Keyboard Player magazine, Rolie is a renowned Hammond B3 player, celebrated for his gritty and intense performances. Up close, personal and intimate, this show will feature a side of Gregg that all fans should get to know.
