District 142 in downtown Wyandotte is an all-new premier live music venue. The century old building has been transformed in to one the best live venues around. The district has been slamming with shows and selling out the joint and that will continue when FOGHAT comes to town on July 28th. For more info about this event you can click here.
Foghat, who celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021, are the undisputed Kings of Boogie Rock. They have been a mainstay on the music scene since first forming in London in 1971. The band’s unique mix of blues, hard rock, boogie and its signature use of slide guitar has earned the band eight gold records, one platinum album and one double platinum record.
Many of their classic hits are still mainstays on classic rock radio years after their release including Fool for the City, I Just Want to Make Love to You, Drivin’ Wheel, Stone Blue and, of course, the band’s signature hit, Slow Ride.
They’ve released over 20 albums over the years, most all of which feature the band’s unrelenting in-your-face hard rock crunch mixed with the blues, a genre of music the band remains passionate about to this day. They continue to tour non-stop, to the delight of both longtime fans and a younger generation of concertgoers who appreciate and enjoy the band’s music and legacy.
Roger Earle, who has lived in Long Island NY for many years, was inducted into the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame in May 2023.
