Scaggs is on the road with a bunch of good friends, including former Steely Dan band mates Donald Fagen (“Reelin’ in the Years”) and Michael McDonald, who wrote “Takin’ It to the Streets” for the Doobie Brothers. They form the core of the Dukes of September Rhythm Review, a unique troupe of singer songwriters to hear when you buy Boz Scaggs concert tickets.
Scaggs has always worked well in ensemble, beginning during high school in Texas when he and good friend Steve Miller formed their first band called The Marksmen. Years later, Scaggs’ musical career began to take off during San Francisco’s 1967 “summer of love” musical renaissance when he joined the Steve Miller Blues Band.
As a teen, one of Scaggs’ defining experiences was attending a Ray Charles concert where he was one of the few white people in the 3,000-seat hall. The pounding beat and gospel-music energy of Charles’ “What’d I Say” propelled him toward the blues at a time when everyone said it wasn’t for white boys. Now tickets for Boz Scaggs, sold here, are a way to be influenced by another R&B great
Years later, before joining Miller in San Francisco, Scaggs sang for his supper relying on a repertoire of bluesy soul classics he had memorized while listening to the radio as a kid. He sang on Stockholm’s sidewalks, then played jazz and blues with local bands and recorded his first album.
After a year back in the States with Miller’s band, Scaggs moved on to a solo career singing about lost love and hard luck times. One of his best-known, early songs is the seedy, melancholic ballad “Loan Me a Dime” about a guy who’s down and out financially and emotionally and wants to redeem himself by telephoning a girlfriend he had cast aside. The opportunity to purchase Boz Scaggs tickets is something you shouldn't cast aside, because the singer performs a limited number of concerts.
In addition to making music, Scaggs makes wine. In 2000, he and his wife, Dominique, decided to put down roots in the Napa Valley. They didn't intend to become vintners when they moved to the heart of Northern California's wine country. A friend offered Scaggs and Dominique some leftover vines to grow as part of their gardens. But similar to Scaggs' career as a sidewalk troubador, their career in agriculture has grown beautifully.
