POPULAR SINGER KENNY LOGGINS COMES TO SAN MANUEL CASINO
Gifted Musician to Perform His Grammy®- Winning Songs for the Inland Empire

Kenny Loggins has enjoyed more than three decades of success in the music business as a songwriter and performer, mostly in a soft rock vein. He initially turned to music as a way of compensating for his extreme shyness, and found that he was, indeed, a talented guitarist and singer. In the late 60’s, Loggins joined the lineup of a band called Gator Creek, which was signed to Mercury Records. The group recorded one self-titled album, issued in 1970, and included an early version of “Danny’s Song,” a track that Loggins would later record with Jim Messina.
His musical talents took him to songwriting for Wingate Music, where four of his songs wound up on the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band album, Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy. The success of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band caught the attention of former Poco member, Jim Messina. Loggins & Messina joined forces and were among the most popular folk-based soft rock acts of the first half of the 70’s, enjoying a four-year string of successful albums. The duo eventually split up and Loggins went onto solo stardom with such million-selling albums 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”).
These albums saw Loggins expanding his musical range, impressively exploring new textures of jazz, rock and pop with ambitious productions. Loggins’ reputation as one of music’s outstanding vocalists was becoming well established, and in 1980 he won the Best Male Pop Vocal Grammy for “This Is It.” As a songwriter too, Loggins continued to grow, a fact evidenced by his many 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 2005, he reunited with Messina for a successful tour, album and concert video. In 2007, Loggins released How About Now, his first solo album in four year. It was followed by All Join In in 2009.
