Guy Babylon’s Legacy Continues – Live At The Canyon Club on August 3
By the Editor@EltonJohn.com
Ben Babylon and Jessica Hoggarth, the son and the step-daughter of Elton’s late and much-missed Grammy Award-winning keyboardist, Guy Babylon, will open for the classic rock band Air Supply at the Canyon Club in Agoura, California, USA on August 3.
Ben and Jessica grew up watching Guy in the studio and in concert, and are excited to now be performing their own music. The Ben Babylon Band and HoneyHeart have been playing throughout Southern California this summer, but the Air Supply concert is by far their most exciting opportunity to date.
“Air Supply was one of the biggest groups of the 70s and 80s,” said Ben. “I can’t decide what I’m more excited about—opening for them or seeing them play live.”
"I grew up listening to their music,” added Jessica. “They have so many great songs. I think we are going to be a good fit."
Comprising Jessica and her musical partner Nina Kurtz, HoneyHeart has become a mainstay at festivals and other venues in the region. For the upcoming show they will do an early acoustic set. Then the Ben Babylon Band will rock The Canyon Club with songs from Ben's upcoming album, Dreams for Sale, and other original material, sure to pump up the audience for Air Supply.
This is the second time the Ben Babylon Band has been invited to perform at The Canyon Club - last April Babylon opened for powerhouse jazz group, The Jazzmatics.
Air Supply, the Ben Babylon Band and HoneyHeart will perform Friday, August 3, 2012, at The Canyon Club, 28912 Roadside Drive, Agoura Hills, CA 91301-3304. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. HoneyHeart plays at 7:16 The Ben Babylon Band plays at 8:00. For information, call The Canyon Club at 818-879-5016 or visit www.CanyonClub.net.
