Founder and current member of the pop group Orleans, John Hall joins his longtime bandmate, certified gold singer/songwriter Fly Amero, for an intimate evening of acoustic music packed with famed classic hits, exciting new collaborations and insider tales from the “ghosts” of music industry past.
Watch “Still the One”
Watch “Beautiful World”
As founder of the classic group Orleans and the seminal No Nukes concerts of the ‘70s, songwriter, author and former U.S. congressman John Hall has placed his own permanent stamp on contemporary pop culture’s history in so very many ways. Early on, already boasting an extensive list of luminary achievements, Hall wrote and directed the music for the 1968 Broadway show Morning, Noon and Night, 1969’s Obie-winning Honest to God Schnozzola and the guitar-driven “Half Moon” recorded by Janis Joplin on her final album Pearl. John later penned songs for Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Ricky Skaggs, James Taylor and many more. And of course his classic hits, “Still The One” and “Dance With Me” will simply live forever. On any stage in the world, you can count on John to share stories from his illustrious past, many of which are featured in his memoir, “STILL THE ONE: A Rock’n’Roll Journey to Congress and Back.”
