Huey Lewis and the News


WHO ARE THEY: Huey Lewis and the News combined a bar band mentality, catchy songs and humorous music videos to create the perfect formula for mid-1980s success. Their 1983 album “Sports” was a major commercial breakthrough, selling over 7 million copies and featuring the hit singles “Heart and Soul,” “I Want a New Drug,” “The Heart of Rock & Roll” and “If This is It.” In 1985 the band scored their first No. 1 hit with “The Power of Love” from the “Back to the Future” soundtrack. The band’s 1986 album “Fore!” featured the hit singles “Stuck With You,” “Hip to be Square,” “Jacob’s Ladder,” “I Know What I Like” and “Doing it all for My Baby.”

WHAT TO EXPECT: They may not have been the most stylish or hip band of the 1980s, but Huey Lewis and the News were definitely one of the most successful. Their straight-forward, working class approach helped them to score an impressive string of hit singles. The band’s repertoire lends itself very well to the gritty live performances that one would expect from a bar band. Huey Lewis and the News still has a loyal fan base that flock to their shows. Fans can expect to hear all of the bands major hits including “The Heart of Rock n’ Roll,” “Stuck with you,” “Doing it all for my Baby” and “I Want a New Drug.”
