Tickets for Bruce Hornsby in Kingston on Sale Now


Bruce Hornsby
  • Bruce Hornsby
Singer-songwriter and pianist Bruce Hornsby has led two overlapping, high-profile careers. With his hitmaking band the Range, he defined the soft sound of adult contemporary pop of the 1980s; in the 1990s, he became a temporary member of the Grateful Dead and formed the Other Ones AKA the Dead with the surviving Dead members after Jerry Garcia’s passing. Tickets for an April 27 performance by Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers at UPAC just went on sale, and it’s good bet the Kingston show will find the keyboardist revisiting some of his Range and Dead-related material between his more recent songs.

Hornsby was born and raised in Williamsburg, Virginia, and studied music at the University of Richmond, Berkelee College of Music, and the University of Miami before moving to Los Angeles to write film music. He played with soft rockers Ambrosia and pop star Sheena Easton before forming the Range, who struck platinum with their 1986 debut, The Way It Is. In addition to recording and composing with Leon Russell, Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, Squeeze, Crosby, Stills and Nash, and others, Hornsby continued his Grateful Dead-related activities by performing with Bob Weir’s Ratdog and Mickey Hart and broadened his stylistic reach by working with artists like bluegrass great Ricky Skaggs and jazz players like Wayne Shorter, Charlie Haden, and Branford Marsalis. He launched the Noisemakers in the late 1990s and has released six albums with the group.

Hear Hornsby and the Noisemakers play his inescapable 1986 hit “Mandolin Rain”:
