Rock and Blues icon Rick Derringer will perform in the fifth and final concert in the POA’s 2017 Concerts at the Lodge series. Tickets for the Nov. 4 concert are on sale now and can be purchased at the POA office and on the POA website at canyonlakepoa.com. General admission tickets are $30; reserved VIP tickets are $55.
Rick is a Grammy award-winning producer and entertainer who has released fourteen studio albums, three compilation albums and six live albums. At just 17, Rick was the lead guitarist and singer for The McCoys, who in 1965 recorded the number one smash hit “Hang On Sloopy.” Rick also recorded the 1974 hit “Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo,” a song later featured in the 1993 film “Dazed and Confused,” knocking “Yesterday” by the Beatles out of the top spot. He opened for Led Zeppelin in 1977. Throughout the 70s and 80s, he appeared on numerous albums and toured with Alice Cooper, Richie Havens, Todd Rundgren, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, Barbara Streisand and Kiss.
The opening act for the Nov. 4 concert will be One Guy & A Chick, featuring Canyon Lake resident Aprile DeAnne.
The Rick Derringer concert will be the eleventh concert in the POA’s Concerts at the Lodge series since it’s inception in 2015. Johnny Lee, David Cook, Hal Ketchum, Collin Raye, Suzy Bogguss, Darryl Worley, John Anderson, The Classic Rock All-Stars, Berlin, and Ty Herndon have all performed at the lodge as part of the series.
The concerts are produced by Doug Schultz, Concert Manager for the Entercom San Diego radio stations who has worked with over 5,000 national acts in his concert career spanning 32 years.
Doug will be announcing the 2018 Concerts at the Lodge line up at the beginning of the Rick Derringer concert. “I am so proud to produce these shows for the community I live. In Canyon Lake, where practically everything is subsidized, Concerts at the Lodge actually generates income for the POA. Plus it is humbling to see Canyon Lakers get emotional when witnessing a real artist that they love so much right here in our Holiday Bay Room at the lodge,” said Doug. “There really is nothing like it.”
