Boz Scaggs brings his Out of the Blues Tour to Omaha! This legendary singer-songwriter fuses jazz, R&B, rock n' roll and a whole lot of blues. Scaggs' global, five-decade career includes several Top 40 hits and a Grammy®. Scaggs is set to perform the hit tunes from his Grammy®-nominated album Out of the Blues. These melodies showcase his energetic vocals and gritty guitar in renditions of classic blues songs. He covers the greats such as Bobby "Blue" Bland and Jimmy Reed. Backed by a gifted band, Scaggs will also perform new originals and many of his greatest hits. Songs include: "Lowdown," “JoJo” and "Lido Shuffle.” 

It's appropriate that Boz Scaggs' new album is Out of the Blues, since the blues is what first sparked his musical career. Scaggs continued to mine a personalized mix of rock, blues and R&B influences, along with a signature style of ballads on such influential '70s albums as Moments, Boz Scaggs & Band, My Time, Slow Dancer and 1976’s Silk Degrees. The latter release became a massive commercial breakthrough, reaching Number Two and remaining on the album charts for 115 weeks and spawned three Top 40 hit singles. Subsequently, "We're All Alone” from that same album, would become a #1 single for Rita Coolidge. Silk Degrees was followed by the albums Down Two Then Left and Middle Man, and such hit singles as "Breakdown Dead Ahead," and "Look What You've Done to Me."  

Despite his '70s successes, Scaggs spent much of the 1980s out of the music-biz spotlight, traveling, opening a family business, fathering young children and founding the San Francisco nightclub, Slim's, He returned to the studio after an 8-year hiatus and released Other Roads, Some Change, Dig, the Grammy-nominated Come on Home, the unplugged Fade Into Light, the in-concert retrospective Greatest Hits Live as well as a stint touring with Donald Fagen’s New York Rock & Soul Review. A pair of albums of jazz standards, But Beautiful and Speak Low, the latter topping the Billboard Jazz chart, demonstrated Scaggs' stylistic mastery, as did the Southern-flavored Memphis and the rhythm & bluesy A Fool to Care

"Music has been a constant companion and I'm feeling more free with it than ever," Scaggs comments. "I feel like I've found my voice through all these years, and I've gotten closer to where I want to be with my approach."
