Dave Mason, the legendary British rocker and co-founder of psychedelic band Traffic, is bringing his “Alone Together Again” tour to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Friday, June 16, 2017.
Best known for his soulful voice and unsurpassed guitar playing, and with a career spanning five decades, British singer-songwriter, guitarist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason has worn many hats over the years. Mason has played, recorded, and performed with notable musicians such as Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Steve Winwood and Fleetwood Mac. In 2004, Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of Traffic.
Hailing from Worcester, England, Mason first found fame with ‘60s psychedelic rock group Traffic – writing hit tunes like “Feelin’ Alright” and “Hole in My Shoe.” In the late 1960s, Mason played acoustic guitar on Jimi Hendrix’s iconic version of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.” In 1970, Mason wrote his solo album Alone Together, which has become one of America’s most beloved classic rock albums. In 1977, he recorded “We Just Disagree,” a solo hit in the U.S. written by Jim Krueger, which has also become an American radio playlist standard.
Nearly 50 years later and more than a dozen solo albums in his repertoire, Mason will revisit his classic masterpiece Alone Together on his new “Alone Together Again” U.S. tour. Along with his band members Johnne Sambataro, Alvino Bennett and Tony Patler, the tour will feature singer extraordinaire Bekka Bramlett, daughter of Delaney and Bonnie, the celebrated duo who toured with Mason in the 1970s and had a #2 national hit with “Only You and I Know.”
The “Alone Together Again” show will include fan favorites like “All Along the Watchtower” and “Feelin’ Alright,” in addition to the album’s classic songs. Photos and firsthand autobiographical commentary will complement the guest experience, making this series of performance by a living classic rock legend one of rock ‘n roll history’s most significant albums a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.
