Don’t miss your chance to revisit this Grammy-winning rock group, led for more than four decades by Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell. The power and poignancy of America’s musical imagery catapulted the group to the top of the charts in the 70s. Of America’s albums, six have been certified gold and/or platinum. Their top tunes (such as hits like: A Horse With No Name; I Need You; Ventura Highway; Don’t Cross the River; Tin Man; Lonely People; and Sister Golden Hair) were cornerstones of 1970s Top 40 and FM rock radio.

Yet beyond their impressive catalog of hits, listeners discover there is much more to America than surface perceptions. The combination of Beckley’s melodic pop rock and Bunnell’s use of folk-jazz elements, Latin-leaning rhythms, and impressionistic lyric imagery contributed to material that encompassed an ambitious artistic swath.

When: Friday April 14th, show starts at 7:30pm, gates open at 6:00pm. Where: Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Yokouchi Pavilion and A&B Amphitheater. Tickets: $39, $49, $69, $89, and a limited number of $129 premium seats (plus applicable fees) and available online here.
