On FRIDAY, April 6th at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island, will host a concert with rock icon LEON RUSSELL.

Over the past thirty years, LEON RUSSELL’s keyboard talents, with his spicy blend of rock/soul/blues and country have made him a legend with fans and musicians alike.  He has  influenced a large number of fellow artists, such as The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker,  Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Bela Fleck, The Tractors and others too numerous to mention.  He began his career as a teen in Tulsa, playing keyboards with Jerry Lee Lewis.  He moved to L.A. at 17, promptly establishing himself as a competitive session musician and a key member of Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound” brigade.  His versatility is highlighted by his list of credits, which cover everything from The Byrds’ “Mr. Tambourine Man” to the arrangement of “This Diamond Ring” by Gary Lewis and The Playboys for which Russell received his first gold record. 

Russell’s contributions to America’s musical legacy include such songs as “Tightrope,” “Delta Lady,” “This Masquerade,” and “Song for You” which earned a 1993 Grammy for Ray Charles.  His musical vision was the driving force behind his high-octane performance at George Harrison’s Concert for Bangla Desh, which solidified his reputation as a performer of mythic proportions.

Tickets for this performance are $30.00 general public ($22.50 for IMAC Members) and can be obtained by calling IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS. Tickets can also be purchased at the theater from noon to 6PM, Tuesdays to Fridays, and after 2PM on the day of the show.
