What makes American music “American?” Gwen Hughes and The Hitmakers will take you on a journey of the country and the distinct regional influences that all come together to create “American Music” as a sound all its own.
In this 90-minute concert that covers over 25 classic hits, Gwen leads the audience on a freewheeling & fun history lesson of American Music – from blues to country to jazz to rock n’ roll to hip hop and beyond. Many of these genres originated in the rural South but then morphed into the sounds we know today because of the culture in cities like Chicago and New York, then later the sunshine of California.
Along with artists like Elvis and Johnny Mercer, the band reinvents songs by Aretha Franklin…Jimmy Buffett, Outkast, Hootie & The Blowfish…James Taylor…Hank Williams…Bruce Hornsby…AI Green…Justin Timberlake…and the list goes on and on.
“Gwen Hughes & The Hitmakers Play American Gold” will feature audience song requests and participation. It’s all about the audience and what these songs mean to them.
