An immense pleasure to see Billy live. A rock eminence that I follow more than 30 years. I would like to see Tom Waits, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai ... Beautiful program. Thank you, Ciao from Italy.

Windows rolled down, mid summer, radio turned all the way up, listening to Sharp Dressed Man. It doesn't get much better than that.

What a special evening it would be, if Daryl Hall showed up on Friday, December 04, 2015 to jam with Billy Gibbons at ACL-LIVE/The Moody Theater, ATX. Show up, sharp dressed Texas-style, sharing those high and low notes together for a party!

Billy Gibbons
Billy Gibbons is a founding member and guitarist for the famed Texas blues-rock band ZZ Top with bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard, who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. The band, formed in Houston in 1969, boasts seven platinum and 11 gold records, selling more than 25 million in U.S. album sales alone.

Daryl and Billy launch into a remarkably diverse seven-song set of Daryl Hall and John Oates and ZZ Top chestnuts along with a vintage cover of Hammond B-3 jazz-blues organist Jimmy McGriff’s 1963 instrumental, “Kiko.” The pair also perform such deep Daryl Hall tunes as “Bank on Your Love,” a song from Daryl Hall and John Oates' hit album, Big Bam Boom and “Love You Like a Brother,” recorded in 1973, but unreleased until 1977’s Atlantic Records hits compilation, No Goodbyes. The twosome lean into four ZZ Top nuggets, the band’s cover of Sam & Dave’s “I Thank You,” from the 1979 album Deguello; the classic “La Grange,” included on 1973’s Tres Hombres; “Sharp Dressed Man” from 1983’s 10-million-selling Eliminator, and the group’s version of the Nightcaps’ ‘50s rave-up, “Thunderbird.”

“Playing Live from Daryl’s House is a regular, down-to-earth, big bash,” said Gibbons about the experience. “Good groovin’ to the core.”

“Being in a room with Billy Gibbons is like dipping your toe into the deep wellspring of Texas rock, blues and soul,” says Daryl.
