AIR SUPPLY

SOFT ROCK DUO—AIR SUPPLY—TO PERFORM THE DIAMOND CENTER

The harmonies of Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock set them apart from the very beginning. Forming in 1975, Air Supply released their first single to critical acclaim, landing the No. 6 spot in Australia with “Love and Other Bruises.” After touring the country with Rod Stewart, Air Supply recorded and released a new album, Life Support, which included a Top 10 hit in Australia, “Lost in Love.” The song became the fastest selling single in the world at the time. The follow-up single, “All Out of Love,” went up the charts even quicker. In 1980, “Lost in Love” was named Song of the Year and Air Supply celebrated selling more than 10 million copies of their chart topping singles and more than 20 million copies of hit albums.

In 2010, Air Supply released the long-awaited album, Mumbo Jumbo, the group’s first studio recording in eight years. The album included the single, “Dance With Me,” which resulted in Billboard Magazine writing a featured article on the group titled, “Still Supplying The Hits After 35 Years.” The group was further honored in 2013 when it was announced that they would be inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame.

BONEY JAMES

MULTI-PLATINUM SELLING SAXOPHONIST BONEY JAMES AT THE DIAMOND CENTER.

Born in Lowell, Mass. and raised in New Rochelle, NY, Boney James became seriously interested in music in the mid ‘70s, a very vibrant and freewheeling period for popular music. By 13, James – born James Oppenheim and nicknamed “Boney” in his mid-20’s when a meager touring per diem saw him growing thinner – was jamming in basements and garages. One summer during college, he found himself sitting in with some friends at a club.

Following early pro gigs, (including sideman stints with Morris Day, the Isley Brothers, Randy Crawford and Teena Marie) James released his debut album as a leader, Trust, in 1992. Over the following 23 years James has racked up sales of more than 3 million records, four RIAA gold albums, four GRAMMY nominations, a Soul Train Award, nominations for two NAACP Image Awards and 10 CD’s atop Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. In 2009 Billboard magazine named him the #3 Contemporary Jazz Artist Of The Decade. James continues his artistic evolution with his latest album, the dynamic futuresoul.

America

AMERICA AT THE DIAMOND CENTER 

America formed in the late 1960s and quickly reached the top of the charts with their signature song “A Horse With No Name.” Their best-known tunes, which also include “Don’t Cross The River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “Sister Golden Hair,” were cornerstones of 1970s Top 40 and FM rock radio. In 1972, America was rewarded for their hits by winning the Grammy for Best New Artist. Their albums—six certified gold and/or platinum, with their first greatest hits collection, History, hitting four plus million in sales—displayed a fuller range of the group’s talents than did their singles. Their material encompassed an ambitious artistic swath, from effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys to soul-bearing ballads.

In 1982, America once again hit it big with their smash single, “You Can Do Magic.” America experienced growth as singers, songwriters and musicians during this period, which has continued into the present day as illustrated by landmark releases such as 2000’s “Highway” 3-disc box set, 2002’s “Holiday Harmony”, an album comprised of seasonal classics and live showcases, 2007’s “Here & Now,” 2009’s “Live In Concert: Wildwood Springs,” and 2011’s “Back Pages.”
