The University at Buffalo Center for the Arts will present “An Evening With Bruce Hornsby” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, in the Mainstage Theatre, located at the Center for the Arts, North Campus.
Based out of Williamsburg, Virginia, Hornsby first rose to national prominence with "The Way It Is,” his 1986 Grammy-winning debut album with The Range. The title track became the most-played song on American radio in 1987. Tupac Shakur's song "Changes" builds on "The Way It Is" and set the stage for many subsequent versions of the track.
In 1991, Hornsby collaborated with Bonnie Raitt, playing on her iconic hit "I Can't Make You Love Me." Additionally, Hornsby was a part-time member of the Grateful Dead from September 1990 to March 1992, performing over 100 concerts in America and Europe.
The 13-time Grammy nominee has also solidified his status as a highly sought-after collaborator. Hornsby's own 23 albums have sold over 11 million copies worldwide, and he has appeared on over 100 records, including releases with Bob Dylan, Don Henley, the Grateful Dead, Stevie Nicks, Ricky Skaggs, Bob Seger, Chaka Khan, Bon Iver, Brandon Flowers, Raitt, Sting, Mavis Staples and Willie Nelson.
His most recent studio album, “ ‘Flicted,” was released this past May.
