Bruce Hornsby, triple-threat singer, songwriter and pianist, will perform live with his band The Noisemakers at the Tivoli Theatre on Thursday, Aug. 18. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m.

Mr. Hornsby, a three-time Grammy winner who has sold more than 10 million records since his multi-platinum debut album in 1986, draws from a wide variety of influences—among them jazz, pop, classical, bluegrass, rock, vaudeville, and sounds both swinging and downright unrecognizable—to create his signature blend of playful lyrics and soaring keyboard instrumentals.

Bruce Hornsby struck RIAA gold, and triple platinum, with his debut album, “The Way It Is,” which generated three Top 20 hits, including its #1 title track. Mr. Hornsby has played on more than 100 records with artists ranging from Bob Dylan, Don Henley, and the Grateful Dead, to Bob Seger, Bonnie Raitt, Bela Fleck, and Willie Nelson, among many others.

His songs have been performed and/or recorded by artists as diverse as Tupac Shakur, Robbie Robertson, Chaka Khan, Sara Evans and Leon Russell. In the 1990s Hornsby toured as a part-time member of the Grateful Dead, performing with the Dead in more than 100 concerts throughout North America and Europe.

“I’ve always liked the group of fans that we’ve drawn from the Grateful Dead time, because those fans are often adventurous music listeners,” Mr. Hornsby admits. “To be creative, spontaneous in the moment and make music in the present tense, that’s what we’re all about live.”

The Pete Parker Foundation presents Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers. The concert benefits the Chambliss Home Children’s Shelter and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Tickets are on sale now at Memorial Auditorium box office and online at www.ChattanoogaOnStage.com. Charge by phone (423) 642-TIXS (-8497).
