Aug. 15: Bruce Hornsby at the Napa Valley Opera House

Posted By on Wed, Aug 12, 2009 at 11:57 AM

There are lots of formidable, tough-as-nails baddies named Bruce out there: Bruce Springsteen, Bruce Lee, Bruce Willis and Bruce “the Batman” Wayne among many. But none of them dare compare when it comes to playing the pleasant jazz-bluegrass-country-jam-band piano stylings of the one and only Bruce Hornsby. A three-time Grammy award winner, Hornsby has had a career spanning decades and genres. He played for years with the Grateful Dead, wrote songs for Bonnie Raitt and Don Henley, and is now even penning a Broadway musical featuring a song about Donald Trump called “The Don of Dons.” He may not rock as hard as Springsteen or kick butt as fiercely as Lee, but mild-mannered Hornsby is a Bruce to watch out for. Laser the gaze on Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Napa Valley Opera House. 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $80. 707.226.7372.Dan Hirsch
