FIREFALL, POCO and PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE BIOS
FIREFALL is a 40 year labor of love for founder Jock Bartley. Their layered harmonies backed by driving rhythms transcends many genres from rock to country. Firefall's commercial success includes three Gold albums, two Platinum albums and eleven chart-topping singles including, You Are the Woman. Goodbye I Love You, Cinderella, Strange Way, Mexico and Just Remember I Love You. Currently touring with three original members (Jock Bartley, David Muse, Mark Andes), longtime drummer Sandy Ficca and talented newcomer Gary Jones, Firefall continues to make great music for a loyal following, adding new fans at each show.
POCO was one of the first groups to pioneer Country-Rock music. The harmonies and instruments of Country mixed with Rock'n'Roll rhythms, paved the way for supergroups like the Eagles with their influence running deep in both Country and Pop music. These country rock pioneers found platinum success early in their career, and four decades later Rusty Young, who wrote and sang the massive hits Crazy Love and Call It Love, still leads this incredible band. Other hits include, Heart Of The Night, Spellbound, Keep On Tryin' and Good Feelin’ To Know.
PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE continues to embellish the rich 43-year history of one of Country-Rock’s pioneering forces, featuring founding member/pedal-steel innovator John David Call, veteran bassist Mike Reilly, propulsive drummer Scott Thompson and guitar ace Donnie Clark. Their eponymous first album, Sad Luke, has been hailed as a major early influence in the emerging popularity of Country-Rock music. Their second effort, the multi-platinum, Bustin’ Out, brought us their classic hit, Aimee. Their other hits include, Two Lane Highway, Let Me Love You Tonight, Falling In An Out Of Love and Early Morning Riser. As crisp and clean as spring water and as comfortable as a well-worn cowboy shirt, Pure Prairie League still brings it all back home.
