    Over the course of 16 studio albums – including six Gold and two Platinum – George Thorogood and the Destroyers would amass an unmatched catalog of hits that includes “Who Do You Love”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Get A Haircut” and the ultimate badass anthem, “Bad To The Bone.” But it was their powerhouse live performances that made GT&D legendary: from unforgettable appearances on SNL and Live Aid, to the opening slot on the Rolling Stones’ historic ’81 tour, to their own record-breaking 50/50 tour, or any of their current 100+ shows per year, George and his longtime band – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) –remain among the most relentless and relevant classic rock acts on tour today.

    Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet relatable music of our time. With 20 years of writing, touring, and entertaining under his belt, he shows no sign of slowing down with his new record, Don’t Let the Devil Ride, breaking genre barriers and topping charts, putting a new twist on his already-entertaining live show.

    "This is Love" tells the story of the Rudy Love Story. See it October 19!
    Despite finding success alongside legends like Little Richard and Ray Charles, Rudy Love's experience in the music industry over the decades encapsulates an all-too-familiar struggle for African American artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Lauded by musicians worldwide, this biography lovingly celebrates the Wichitan's life and music.

    A film by Shawn Rhodes.
    Community Partner: Wichita Blues Society
    Director John Alexander, Executive Producer Shawn Rhodes, Producer JC Guest and Subject Rudy Love scheduled to attend.
