Jeff Slate & Friends will rock the Hill Country Live! stage once again to celebrate October birthday boys Tom Petty and John Lennon with a show that’s going to lift the roof off the joint. C’mon down and join Jeff and his all-star band at our West 26th Street location on Friday, October 11th for two barn burner sets of classic music beginning at 9:00 PM. Jeff and the band will dig deep into their huge catalog for some of their favorite songs of the last 50-plus years, playing rock and roll classics and deep cuts by Petty and Lennon, plus Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Byrds and more, as well as originals inspired by those legends.

In 2012 Jeff debuted his solo album Birds of Paradox to sold out crowds around New York City. Since then he has toured, released Imposters & Attractions, a new album of original music inspired Elvis Costello, as well as an all-star version of The Kinks’ “Big Sky” on a tribute album to the late Kinks bass player Pete Quaife, and written extensively about some of music’s biggest names for Esquire, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. Since February 2014 Jeff has been a featured performer with his Birds of Paradox band at the Fest For Beatles Fans here in New York. This year he celebrated 30 years of the Traveling Wilburys in a show with Roy Orbison’s sons.
In May 2013 Jeff made his Hill Country Live! debut with his Dylan Obscura show, playing a set full of songs that Dylan himself has never recorded or even played live, gems he rarely plays in concert and some of his best but least known songs, as well as original music inspired by Dylan, to a packed house. He’s returned regularly with stellar, packed shows celebrating John Lennon, David Bowie, Tom Petty and others, with a long list of very special guests.
Jeff’s latest album, Secret Poetry, released in 2016, features performances by Bowie alums Earl Slick, Carlos Alomar, Gail Ann Dorsey, Mark Plati and Alex Alexander, as well as Laurence Juber and Steve Holley from Wings, and many, many more!
In 2019 Jeff appeared alongside members of David Bowie’s former band, as part of the world tour A Bowie Celebration, and later in October he will appear at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, as the musical director for the all-star Tom Petty Birthday Celebration.
