26 views


Join Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of the legendary band Traffic, Dave Mason for an evening of rock music history as he retraces the earliest days of his career with the music of Traffic and later, the classic recordings that launched his successful solo career in a two act presentation. In addition to songs you haven't heard performed in years, you'll see rare historic images as Dave spins tales of those times for an evening that will be long remembered.

After extensive touring with Traffic throughout the UK and Europe, Mason headed for the USA to pursue a solo career. He struck international gold with his debut album 'Alone Together', which is considered a seminal rock classic. It's known for the marbleize vinyl, vertical gatefold packaging, the hits 'Only You Know And I Know', 'World In Changes', 'Shouldn't Have Took More Than you Gave' and more. The album has sold millions of copies. Five highly successful albums for the CBS/Sony label followed, four of which received gold album certification in the US. His next album Let It Flow sold millions of copies and contains another major Mason classic 'We Just Disagree'. In addition to performing to sold-out audiences and being a permanent staple in record collections and hearts of fans around the world, Mason's unique guitar work can be heard on many landmark albums and songs such as the Rolling Stones' Beggar's Banquet, George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, Paul McCartney's Listen To What The Man Said and Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland. Hendrix's major rock standard 'All Along The Watchtower' features Dave playing the acoustic guitars before Hendrix's soaring entrance onto the track.

Dave Mason's career spans several important rock eras, and encompasses his work as a producer, performer, songwriter, and consummate guitarist. In 2004, Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
