Home Uncategorized New York Rock Icon Garland Jeffreys Turns 70 Tonight with a Big...

I can’t helieve Garland Jeffreys turns 70 today. Happy Birthday Garland. You look maybe 50. And Garland, a New York rock icon, plays the Highline Ballroom tonight to celebrate by jumping on tables and rocking the rafters with his amazing story-songs that combine delicious modern R&B and cutting edge rock. Garland burst onto the scene circa 1977 with Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, and Joe Jackson. His debut was “Wild in the Streets,” still an inflammatory anthem of youth sung by a man who never seems to grow old. There have been lots of great records since then, but I do love his most recent album, “The King of In Between.” (There is promise of a new album this fall.) Garland is New York’s great success story. We’re so lucky to have him. And he’s just getting started!

What do you think?
