ARROW ROCK, MO, September 16, 2017 – The Arrow Rock Lyceum Theatre is announcing a change in its 2016 New Year’s Eve Celebration plans. The Lyceum is excited to introduce a New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2016 celebration featuring the award-winning members of the Memphis Misphits! With a range of blues, boogie, and soul, The Memphis Misphits will rock in the new year with a four hour energized performance throughout the evening. “The group is comprised of internationally recognized talent from all over the country, as well as ties to many well-known bands including The Fabulous Thunderbirds. These guys are sure to put on an exciting show that will keep everyone dancing all night,” said Kevin Magee, Lyceum Director of Marketing.

When SUGARAY RAYFORD belts out a song, you not only hear it, you feel it. The excitement in the room is palpable when he takes the stage; he is a superb vocalist and entertainer. At 6’5”, his dynamic voice is large just like the man. With his old school vocal style, echoes of Muddy Waters, Otis Redding and Teddy Pendergrass can be heard, and his fluid dance steps will remind you of the Legendary James Brown. Sugaray is currently nominated for 4 BMA’s for the 2016 Blues Music Awards. The award nominations are for BB King Entertainer of the Year, Contemporary Blues Male Vocalist, Contemporary Blues Album (Southside) & Song of the Year (Southside of Town).

In 1994, Ramos joined forces with Lynwood Slim to form the Big Rhythm Combo. Ramos’ debut solo album, Two Hands One Heart, was released the following year. Ramos joined The Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1993, following an invitation from their singer, Kim Wilson. As well as regularly recording and appearing with them up to 2002, Ramos also continued to release his own albums, the most recent being Greasy Kid Stuff (2001). Ramos appeared at the 2005 Edmonton’s Labatt Blues Festival, playing along with the Mannish Boys. He also formed the roots quartet, Los Fabulocos, who released their debut album in 2008. In 2009, Ramos backed Bobby Jones at the Notodden Blues Festival. 1999, 2000, 2001 WC Handy nominated, best blues record of the year, best blues guitarist, best song winner 2001, and recipient of the 2014 OC music Award Lifetime achievement award.

He is known worldwide as one of the best blues drummers of any generation.

WILLIE J. CAMPBELL was born in Motown and influenced by American Music. Early on Willie spent many nights hanging out at the Golden Bear, listening to the likes of BB King, Freddy King, Albert King, Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter, etc. Willie’s first band, Southern Select Blues Band, was comprised of his brother Scott, Dave Lee Bartel, and Tom Lai. After a short run they formed a Rockabilly band called The Red Devils. That band would later morph into The Red Devils featuring Lester Butler, Paul Size, Bill Bateman, and the Bartel brothers. Willie spent the next 10 years with The James Harman Band. “James was an incredible mentor, he notes.” Willie honed his skills playing alongside an all-star lineup which included: Hollywood Fats, Gene Taylor, Stephen Hodges, and Kid Ramos. Willie was fortunate to back up or share the stage with a “Who’s Who” in Blues, Soul, Rock, and Punk music. Following the James Harman Band, was a six year run with The Fabulous Thunderbirds. This was another great band that included Kim Wilson, Gene Taylor, Kid Ramos, and Jimi Bott. Willie has been with The Mannish Boys for the last seven years. He has played alongside Finis Tasby, Randy Chortkoff, Bobby Jones, Sugaray Rayford, Jimi Bott, Kid Ramos, Kirk Eli Fletcher, and Franck Goldwasser. Willie has been honored several times by the Blues Foundation with nominations for instrumentalist, band, and record of the year. The Blues Music Awards have been a mainstay in recognizing a slice of Americana.

ANTHONY GERACI has a long history in the American Blues Community. He is an original member of Sugar Ray and the Bluetones and Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters. He has toured with Otis Rush, Big Mama Thorton, Big Joe Turner, J.B. Hutto, Big Walter Horton, Chuck Berry and Jimmy Rodgers to name just a few. He has backed up blues legends Muddy Waters, B.B.

ALLAN WALKER is a jazz saxophonist with deep roots in R&B and a resume that includes tours and recordings with some of the biggest names in the music business. By the time he was fifteen, he was good enough to start accompanying artists from Motown, Stax, King, and other major labels at the time who needed a pick-up band when they played between D.C. and Miami.  But his career started to really take off at the age of sixteen when he began recording and touring nationally and internationally with acts like The Temptations, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, The Coasters, The Drifters, Little Anthony and the Imperials, and countless others. In the late 1960’s, already a successful and in-demand player, he started to become seriously interested in jazz.  He was inspired by the likes of Clyde “Fats” Wright, an excellent pianist, and Don Pullen, the amazing pianist/organist that Allan got to play with whenever he was in town. He was privileged to perform at one of the last dinners honoring Richard Pryor at for the first Mark Twain Awards Ceremony at Lincoln Center, which included luminaries like Robin Williams, Chris Kristofferson, Danny Glover, Morgan Freeman, Chris Tucker and Ruth Brown. He attended a private fund raising  party at Will and Jaden Smith’s house for President Obama (where he got a chance to kiss the first lady), and started  working with some major blues players, like Roy Gains, Sugaray Rayford, for whom he arranged several horn parts on his Blind Alley CD, and many others. Ralph Carter, the music director for Eddie Money and Sugaray, offered him the opportunity to record and arrange horn parts on many songs for some Jane Fonda videos, which led him to performing live on the “Today Show” with Fonda. Since then, he has played on many CD’s as a sideman, horn arranger, and soloist and released his own CD project in 2014.
