Blue Oyster Cult at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts

October 6, 2019

For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time. Upon the release of BÖC's self-­-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-­-yet-­-heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC's canon includes three stone-­-cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" from 1976's Agents of Fortune, the pummeling "Godzilla" from 1977's Spectres and the hypnotically melodic "Burnin' for You" from1981's Fire of Unknown Origin. Other notable BÖC songs include "Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll," "Then Came the Last Days of May," "I Love the Night," "In Thee,""Veteran of the Psychic Wars," "Dominance and Submission," "Astronomy," "Black Blade" and "Shooting Shark." The intense creative vision of BÖC's original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser, and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Danny Miranda, and drummer Jules Radino. We realized we're a 'classic rock' band. That's what we are, that's what we do best, that's what we know. The band members are proud of BÖC's classic sound, and pleased the band is creating vibrant work for disenfranchised music lovers who don't like the homogenized, prefabricated pop or sound-­-alike, formulaic rap-­-metal, which monopolizes the radio airwaves and best-­-seller charts. BÖC has always maintained a relentless touring schedule that brings new songs and classics to original fans and, as Bloom puts it, "teen-­-agers with green hair."

An Evening with Rebecca Luker

September 14, 2019

Celebrate the start of Live Arts Maryland's musical season with a special evening showcasing the music of Broadway and the Great American Songbook! We'll welcome a very special guest performer for this one-night-only event that's followed by a gala party! Featuring Broadway Star Rebecca Luker! Known for her many performances as well as her interpretation of the American Songbook, Ms. Luker will open the season. Ms. Luker has long been recognized for the skillful combination of her distinctive fine soprano voice and rare dramatic sensibility.  Luker, a three-time Tony nominee and Broadway star, opens our season with a solo show of her favorite music. Rebecca is an elegant singer and seeing her with just her music director at the piano will be an intimate and unforgettable experience! As New York Times critic Stephen Holden noted in a review of  Ms. Luker in a cabaret performance, "If you've been wondering who, if anyone, might be the heir to the great Barbara Cook, Ms. Luker, who also comes from the South (Birmingham, Ala.) and also played Marian the librarian (in the revival of The Music Man) is the one."
