Time: Doors 7:00pm, Showtime 9:00pm

Info: Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, rocker/songwriter Eddie Money began his early years as a cop studying at the New York Police Academy before relocating to San Francisco and becoming a popular fixture around the Bay Area rock scene. On his 1977 eponymous Columbia Records debut, fans were introduced to Money’s unmistakable emotive voice and blue-collar rock ‘n’ roll appeal, with songs such as “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise” quickly rising on the charts and catapulting the hard-working musician to stardom. When MTV hit the American masses, Money ingeniously began creating humorous video narratives which in turn found huge successes for “Shakin’” and “Think I’m in Love.” Five albums later in 1986, he released the smash album Can’t Hold Back which featured two of Money’s best known classics, “Take Me Home Tonight” (feat. Ronnie Spector) and “I Wanna Go Back.” 1988’s Nothing to Lose included the driving single “Walk on Water,” and from there the rocker continued to release several impressive hit albums during the 1990s and into the 2000s. With a long and incredible career of platinum sales and Top 40 hits, Eddie Money’s music continues to transcend generational gaps and shape the music of today.
