Blues Bear Hawaii is proud to announce that Dave Mason's “The Very Best of Dave Mason” tour will be coming to do four shows in Hawaii. Dave’s 2018 shows will be based on his recently filmed concert for PBS which is part of the ‘Infinity Hall Live’ concert series (produced by CPTV).
Originally released in 1979, Dave Mason’s “The Very Best of Dave Mason” is one of America’s most beloved classic rock albums. The music has endured the decades because it is timeless. All ten songs are as satisfying and inspiring as they were 39 years ago.
You will not want to miss Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason revisit this classic masterpiece to perform this limited engagement concert tour along with his band Johnne Sambataro, Alvino Bennett and Tony Patler.
The “The Very Best of Dave Mason” concert will include fan favorite songs like “Feelin’ Alright”, “Only You Know and I Know”, “Shouldn’t Have Took More Than You Gave” and others in addition to the entire classic album. Archival photos and firsthand autobiographical commentary will complement and enhance the guest experience of one of rock n roll history’s most significant albums performed by one of the most legendary living classic rock artists.
There are a handful of songs in the lexicon of rock and roll that can be called anthems, and “Feelin’ Alright “ has repeatedly been crowned one of them. This simple two chord song has been on the lips and in the hearts of the world since its initial release in 1968. This American classic debuted on the cutting edge English rock band, Traffic’s second album. It has become one of the most powerful and enduring tracks in all rock and roll history.
Dave Mason wrote “Feelin’ Alright” at the young age of 19 while on vacation on the island of Hydra, Greece. As most great songs it was initially a love song. The song has been a hit single for performers like Joe Cocker, Grand Funk Railroad, Three Dog Night, The 5th. Dimension, Lou Rawls, Freddie King, and many others.
It is believed that “Feelin’ Alright” is one of the most beloved rock n’ roll songs of our time.
