ABOUT THE SHOW
Singer, Songwriter and Pop Culture Icon Bebe Buell brings her unique blend of storytelling and powerhouse rock n roll to her new live show. Bebe has led an exceptional life, first moving to New York City from Virginia while still in her teens. During the famed early seventies, she immersed herself in the downtown music and fashion scene, befriending such luminaries as Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, Patti Smith, David Bowie and Andy Warhol to name a few. Director Cameron Crowe has cited Bebe Buell as the main influence for his classic rock film, Almost Famous.
Buell has stories for days, as evident in her 2001 autobiography, Rebel Heart, which was a New York Times bestseller) and shares some of her best anecdotes during the performances, adding a touch of “rock-n-roll cabaret” into the mix. She also recounts intimate stories from her personal life such as growing up as a military brat in Virginia, being a single mother and reinventing herself along her fascinating journey. Her tales are as entertaining as they are inspirational.
But the spotlight stays fixed on Bebe performing songs from her own musical catalog, including songs recorded in the studio with Rick Derringer, Ric Ocasek and The Cars, Todd Rundgren and a host of well- known musicians and cult figures. Ms. Buell performs while backed by a two piece band including guitarist/husband Jimmy Walls (Das Damen, DGeneration, David Johansen) and Nashville drummer Mindy Wright. This powerful duo provides the perfect musical setting…as unique as Buell’s performance. Singing, dancing and wailing on harmonica, Bebe has often been called “the female Mick Jagger” and the “Mother of Rock N’ Roll”
For years, Bebe has been considered by insiders, as music’s “Best Kept Secret” and has earned a loyal and steady following. She counts several of rock and country music’s biggest names among her fans, performing sold-out concerts in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville. That secret is finally out. Part storytelling, part inspirational missives and reflective softer moments thrust into a full throttle rock n’ roll show, Bebe Buell’s colorful, charismatic, performances are events not to be missed.
