JIM MCCARTY To Play The Strand in Lakewood, NJ (April 29) and The Iridium In NYC (May 2)


JIM McCARTY, CO-FOUNDER OF YARDBIRDS AND RENAISSANCE, AND JOHN HAWKEN AT THE IRIDIUM FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY

~NEW YORK CITY~

~WEDNESDAY MAY 2~

New York, NY (March 28, 2012)—It promises to be a night to remember when legendary Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame drummer/acoustic guitarist/vocalist Jim McCarty ignites the stage of the Iridium with keyboardist John Hawken (Renaissance, Strawbs and Nashville Teens) on Wednesday, May 2 for two shows at 8:00PM and 10:00PM. Tickets are $27.50.

Stepping out from behind the drums for this very special night, Jim McCarty will be singing and playing guitar on Yardbirds, Renaissance, Illusion, and solo material. For fans of The Yardbirds and Renaissance, as well as all fans of ‘70s blues-rock, progressive-rock and folk-rock, this is a one-of-a-kind must-see event. Ron Korb (flute), Steve Lucas (bass), Larry Crowe (drums), and Jesse Gress (guitar) round out this electric line-up. Singer-songwriter Jann Klose will open the show.

Jim McCarty co-founded the pioneering Yardbirds in 1963, and left in ’68 before reforming the band again in the mid-‘90s with another original member, Chris Dreja. McCarty, who co-wrote such Yardbirds classics as ”Shapes of Things” and “Over Under Sideways Down,” also co-founded Renaissance in the 1970s with the late Keith Relf and John Hawken, which later reformed under the name Illusion. In the ‘80s, Box Of Frogs, with the help of former Yardbirds Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, recorded two albums (Eric Clapton is the other famous Yardbirds alumni).

The Yardbirds, who recently completed a North American tour with Vanilla Fudge, continue to tour Canada and the States through the spring. McCarty, who now resides in France, released his most recent solo album Sitting On The Top Of Time in 2009 by Easy Action, UK.

The Iridium is located on 1650 Broadway at 51st Street.
