The Historic Hemet Theatre launches season three of their Tribute Mania Concert Series on Saturday, Sept. 8 with a Tribute to Supertramp by Fools Logic.
Back in the 1970’s, Supertramp followed an unusual path to success, fusing the style and instrumental dexterity of progressive rock with the wit and melodies of British pop. The results made them one of the most popular British bands of the ‘70s, topping the charts and filling arenas around the world at a time when their style of music was supposed to have fallen out of fashion.
Supertramp’s long list of hits include “Give a Little Bit,” “Goodbye Stranger,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Breakfast in America,” “Bloody Well Right,” “The Logical Song” and “Dreamer.”
These days, the legacy of Supertramp lives on through the passion and dedication of Fools Logic. Based in Thousand Oaks, the band travels the west coast, reliving the classic hits of Supertramp founders Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson. Fools Logic band members are Jeff Bryan (keyboards, guitar, vocals), David Druxman (bass, vocals), Ron Hougardy (keyboards, vocals), Patrick Martin (sax, harmonica, clarinet), Adam “Smitty” Smith (drums, vocals), and Tom Logic (guitar, vocals).
Showtime for all Tribute Mania concerts is 7 p.m., with doors open at 6:15 p.m. Tickets are $22 presale and $25 day of show. Tickets for the Tribute to Supertramp are selling quickly, but are expected to be available through day of show.
