New York, NY (February 22, 2017)—Following the success of their 2016 tour, The Yardbirds head back out on the road this March.
Enjoying a run of solid sold-out performances in 2016, The Yardbirds continue to hold true to the band’s legacy of masterful musicianship. Led by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer / founding member / drummer Jim McCarty, the band (consisting of guitarist Johnny A, bassist Kenny Aaronson, singer/blues harpist/percussionist Myke Scavone, and lead singer/guitarist John Idan) evoke the essence of the classic Yardbirds sound.
Experiencing a Yardbirds concert is akin to a music history lesson. An integral part of the 1960s’ “British Invasion”, these blues-rock pioneers played a significant role in laying the groundwork for rock music. The band crafted blues-rock / psychedelic anthems “For Your Love”, “Over Under Sideways Down”, “Train Kept A-Rollin’”, and “Heart Full Of Soul”, to name a few — building an undeniable legacy that still reigns strong in 2017.
