Peter Frampton no longer has those long flowing golden locks he was famous for, but he still exudes all the same energy and charisma that put him on the map, reports William Hoffman on clevescene.com. The British-American rock musician, singer, songwriter, producer, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist began his career at 16 with the pop band, The Herd. Making a decision to go solo in the early 1970’s, Frampton became one of the biggest touring acts in the world. His fifth solo album, Frampton Comes Alive! remains one of the top-selling live records of all time.
Now, over 40 years later, Frampton is still touring and drawing rave reviews. “I had not seen Peter Frampton in 38 years. I was 13 when I first saw him. I brought my 22 year old daughter to share in this experience. She was overwhelmed with excitement. Peter Frampton sounded just like he did in 1976. He still puts on a fantastic show.” (yswick, Ticketmaster) “I still love the music and it sounds as fresh as it did in the 70s. Excellent show. The best part was his banter with the audience. Instead of ignoring the audience like most rockers do, he interacted with us and structured his show to actually talk to his fans.” (SurgiDoc, Ticketmaster)
As you can see, Frampton’s fan base has remained strong throughout the years. He even found himself immortalized on the popular animated sitcom The Family Guy.
Frampton is donating the proceeds of this concert to Notes for Notes, a nonprofit organization that started in Santa Barbara in 2006; becoming a nationwide organization just five years later. Notes to Notes partnered with the CMA foundation in 2014, and CMA has agreed to support the development of five new Notes for Notes Studios in San Francisco, Detroit, Brooklyn, Austin, and Atlanta by the end of 2015. CMA also introduced Notes to Notes to Chevrolet, who announced their support of the Detroit expansion publically at the December 2014 CMA Awards.
With such famous nationwide support, Notes for Notes is now able to offer our youth the opportunity to explore, create, and record music free of charge. NFN’s core belief, that music is the universal language of mankind with the power to transcend virtually any cultural, racial, or socioeconomic barrier, has taken root across the nation.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see Peter Frampton at the Lobero Theatre on June 7th, while also financially supporting Notes for Notes, the national organization that began right here in Santa Barbara.
