Back by popular demand, Grammy Nominated Professor Louie & The Crowmatix with The Woodstock Horns & guests will host a concert honoring the late great Rick Danko, bassist & vocalist from The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Group, The Band, celebrating his music and Birthday. The late Rick Danko is an integral part of the popular music landscape. Rick's contributions have been substantial.

Rick & Professor Louie traveled the world playing concerts & recording and became best friends. Noting Louie's musical talents, Rick gave him the moniker "Professor Louie". In the 90's, Louie performed on and produced 3 CD's for The Band and three solo CD's by Rick Danko. Professor Louie & The Crowmatix became Rick Danko's backup band for many shows and recordings.

The show at The BB Kings will feature songs from Rick Danko's extensive catalogue. Professor Louie & The Crowmatix will also perform "The Lost Band Tracks" their latest CD with songs written by Jules Shear, Rick Danko and Band members just released on Funzalo/Woodstock Records.
