Boz Scaggs Tickets for Sale

Boz Scaggs (born William Royce Scaggs June 8, 1944) is an Ohio-born Texan singer, songwriter and guitarist.

After learning guitar at the age of 12, he met Steve Miller at a local high school in Dallas, Texas. In 1959, he became vocalist for Miller's band The Marksmen. The pair later attended the University of Wisconsin together, playing in blues bands like The Ardells and The Fabulous Knight Trains. Leaving school, Scaggs briefly left Texas to join the burgeoning rhythm and blues scene in London, England. After singing in bands such as The Wigs and Mother Earth, he recorded his first solo album Boz in 1965, which was not a commercial success.

Returning to the US, Scaggs promptly headed for the booming psychedelic music centre of San Francisco in 1967. Linking up with Steve Miller again, he appeared on the Steve Miller Band's first two albums Children of the Future and Sailor, which won over critical reviews. After being spotted by Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner he secured a solo contract with Atlantic Records in 1968. Despite good reviews his first Atlantic albums were met with lukewarm sales, until he linked up with session musicians, who would later form Toto and record his smash 1976 album Silk Degrees. The album reached number 2 on the US charts and number 1 in a number of countries across the world, spawning three hit singles 'Lowdown', 'Lido Shuffle' and 'What Can I Say'. A sellout world tour followed, but his follow-up album, the 1977 Down Two Then Left, lacked the cohesion of Silk Degrees.

Scaggs has continued to record and tour sporadically throughout the 1980s and 1990s, although he has semi-retired from the music business and now owns the San Francisco nightclub Slim's.

Scaggs recorded Other Roads in the mid 1980s, took another hiatus and then came back with Some Change in 1994. He released Come On Home, an album of blues, and My Time, an anthology in the late 1990s. He garnered good reviews with Dig, although the CD, which was released on Sept. 11, 2001, was lost in the post-911 melee. In May, 2003, Scaggs released But Beautiful, a collection of jazz standards that debuted at No. 1 on the jazz charts.

After first finding acclaim as a member of the Steve Miller Band, singer/songwriter Boz Scaggs went on to enjoy considerable solo success in the 1970s. Born William Royce Scaggs in Ohio on June 8, 1944, he was raised in Oklahoma and Texas, and while attending prep school in Dallas met guitarist Steve Miller. After joining Miller's group the Marksmen as a vocalist in 1959, the pair later attended the University of Wisconsin together, playing in blues bands like the Ardells and the Fabulous Knight Trains.

In 1963 Scaggs returned to Dallas alone, fronting an R&B unit dubbed the Wigs; after relocating to England, the group promptly disbanded, and two of its members â€" John Andrews and Bob Arthur â€" soon formed Mother Earth. Scaggs remained in Europe, singing on street corners; in Sweden he recorded a failed solo LP, 1965's Boz, before returning to the U.S. two years later. Upon settling in San Francisco, he reunited with Miller, joining the fledgling Steve Miller Band; after recording two acclaimed albums with the group, Children of the Future and Sailor, Scaggs exited in 1968 to mount a solo career.

With the aid of Rolling Stone magazine publisher Jann Wenner, Scaggs secured a contract with Atlantic. Sporting a cameo from Duane Allman, 1968's soulful Boz Scaggs failed to find an audience despite winning critical favor; the track 'Loan Me a Dime' later became the subject of a court battle when bluesman Fenton Robinson sued (successfully) for composer credit. After signing to Columbia, Scaggs teamed with producer Glyn Johns to record 1971's Moments, a skillful blend of rock and R&B which, like its predecessor, failed to make much of an impression on the charts.

Scaggs remained a critics' darling over the course of LPs like 1972's My Time and 1974's Slow Dancer, but he did not achieve a commercial breakthrough until 1976's Silk Degrees, which reached number two on the album charts while spawning the Top Three single 'Lowdown,' as well as the smash 'Lido Shuffle.' 1977's Down Two Then Left was also a success, and 1980's Middle Man reached the Top Ten on the strength of the singles 'Breakdown Dead Ahead' and 'Jo Jo.'

However, Scaggs spent much of the 1980s in retirement, owning and operating the San Francisco nightclub Slim's and limiting his performances primarily to the club's annual black-tie New Year's Eve concerts. Finally, in 1988 he resurfaced with the album Other Roads, followed three years later by a tour with Donald Fagen's Rock and Soul Revue. The solo Some Change appeared in 1994, with Come on Home released in 1997.
