Kenny Loggins flies from ‘the danger zone’ onto Cache Creek Casino Resort stage
BROOKS, Calif. – Best known for his driving themes to several 80s blockbuster films such as “Caddyshack,” “Footloose,” and “Top Gun,” rocker Kenny Loggins has entertained audiences for decades as a songwriter, solo artist, and collaborator with many of the industry’s most talented performers. Known by audiences of all ages, he will perform from his stable of hits at Cache Creek Casino Resort’s Club 88 on Aug. 21 at 8 p.m.
Loggins has been many things to many people over the course of his career – “a moving target” as he’s put it. In his time, he’s been a guitar-slinger with a psychedelic rock band, a hot young songwriter with a publishing deal, half of a legendary country-rock duo, a massively successful and accomplished solo artist, a sonic pioneer in the smooth jazz genre, a reigning soundtrack superstar, a rocker, as well as an enduring recording artist and live performer whose most recent works have spoken deeply to both young and adult audiences. At the heart of it all, there remains a brilliant singer-songwriter and guitarist with a lifelong passion for exploring the endless power of the song to communicate.
By any standard, Loggins’ commercial impact has been extraordinary – twelve of his albums have gone platinum and beyond. In a world of one hit wonders and fifteen minute sensations, Loggins has enjoyed hit songs in four straight decades – a remarkable testament to his exceptional craftsmanship and stamina. Through it all, he’s earned the faith of those who’ve followed him along the way.
Loggins first achieved solo stardom with million-selling albums such as Celebrate Me Home, Nightwatch (which included the hit "Whenever I Call You Friend" with Stevie Nicks), Keep the Fire (“This Is It,”) and 1982’s High Adventure (“Don’t Fight It” with Steve Perry and “Heart To Heart”). Loggins’ reputation as one of music’s outstanding vocalists became well established, and in 1980 he won the Best Male Pop Vocal Grammy for “This Is It.” As a songwriter Loggins was also known for inspired collaborations such as co-writing the 1979 Grammy-winning Song of The Year “What a Fool Believes” with his long-time friend Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers.
In the 80s, Loggins became even more famous than ever as the king of movie theme songs, thanks to massive smashes like "I'm Alright" (from Caddyshack), "Footloose" (from Footloose), "Danger Zone" (from Top Gun), and "Nobody's Fool" (from Caddyshack II). Loggins also continued to record albums that were introspective and deeply personal, including 1985’s Vox Humana, 1988’s Back to Avalon, 1991’s Leap of Faith, The Unimaginable Life (1997) and 2003’s It’s About Time. During this same period, Loggins continued to take on new challenges, like recording a Christmas album (1998’s December) and two successful and acclaimed CDs for children: 1994’s radiant Return to Pooh Corner and its worthy follow-up, More Songs from Pooh Corner.
