As the longtime lead singer and rhythm guitarist for arena-rock legends Cheap Trick, Robin Zander has instigated more screams than Hitchcock. When he draws out the opening of “I Want You To Want Me,” as documented in the 1978 live album Cheap Trick at Budokan, the audience’s caterwaul almost redlines the entire recording. Whether he’s opening the floodgates in ballads such as “The Flame,” starting a riot in “Surrender,” or making paranoia fun with “Dream Police,” Zander’s voice remains as rowdy as a pool-hall brawl and sweeter than a teddy bear stuffed with ice cream.

Although the Trick still tours yearly, there’s too much music in the world begging for the Robin Zander treatment. In his brand-new project, the Robin Zander Band, he puts on his signature top hat to play the tunes he wants to play with the help of an airtight new rhythm section. Among his crew of ringers, drummer Steve Luongo, guitarist Mark Hitt, keyboardist Jack Hotop, and bassist Larry Hobbs are drawn from prog-rock bands such as TorQue and the New York collective Rat Race Choir. Luongo’s drum skills also battened down the hatches in The John Entwistle Band. Together, the group toys with the rock 'n' roll songbook during an unpredictable set list, mixing in covers of hits such as Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” and The Who’s “Substitute” with Cheap Trick classics and seldom-heard Zander solo material.

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details immediately grab the eyes of visitors, evoking the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling guests toward the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
