The Music of Captain Beyond feat. Original Drummer Bobby Caldwell
Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM (CDT)
Meet & greet w/ Bobby Caldwell @ 8pm. 10pm Show.
Bobby Caldwell is considered by many to be the best rock drummer of all time. Bobby started playing at the age of ten and by fourteen was playing professionally with many rock groups, primarily “Noah’s Ark”. At the age of 19, he was asked to join Johnny Winter’s new super group “Johnny Winter And”. This group featured Rick Derringer and Randy Hobbs, formerly with the McCoy’s of “Hang On Sloopy” fame. The album “Johnny Winter And Live” became a top ten best seller and Johnny’s highest charting album. Rick Derringer asked Bobby to play on his first solo LP “All American Boy”. This partnership produced the classic top ten hit, “Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo.” While touring with the Allman Brothers Band they recorded their historic album, The Allman Brothers, “Live at the Filmore East”. In the early to mid seventies, Captain Beyond arose from the ashes of Iron Butterfly, Johnny Winter And, and Deep Purple. Captain Beyond’s first album remains a progressive rock cult classic to this day. The band enjoys heavy airplay on satellite radio and a large following in Europe and the far East. Bobby’s contributions to the music, lyrics and song arrangements are evident throughout. Following Captain Beyond, he was enlisted to join the supergroup Armageddon. Once again, Bobby was a major contributor to the song writing and direction of the band. Through the 80’s and 90’s Bobby continued to sing, write new material and play drums while fronting his own band. Highly spiritual, Bobby is an Ordained Metaphysical Minister. He neither smokes, nor drinks, nor uses drugs and lives an extremely clean lifestyle. He is truly a sincere, humble and caring artist.
