Ronnie Laws plays the Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia on July 3rd

Published:
Ronnie Laws PHILADELPHIA — Jazz saxophonist Ronnie Laws takes the stage for two shows at the Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia on July 3rd at 7:00PM and 9:30PM. The shows mark Laws first appearance at the Hard Rock Cafe and the start of the veteran artist's east coast tour. Philly pop/R&B singer Ty “TheGuy" Ward will open the shows, with Grammy winner Cee Knowledge serving as host for the night.

Tickets are $30 in advance online via Ticketfly.com or $35 at the door. The VIP Package is $65 and includes: early VIP entry, first choice of seating, a meet and greet session with Ronnie Laws, and a free Ronnie Laws CD.

A native of Houston, Texas, Laws is the third in a famous line of four musicians that include his classically trained Jazz flautist brother, Hubert, and his vocalist sisters, Eloise and Debra. After a stint with R&B giants Earth Wind & Fire, Laws developed as a proven natural at combining the exploratory heart of Jazz with the broader reaching strains of Soul and Pop music. His first hit, “Always There" was one of the most popular, sax-driven, cross-over hits of the 70's Jazz-Funk Fusion era. He ushered in the sensualization of the soprano sax with Quiet Storm gems such as “Grace", “Karmen", and “Just Love". Pressure Sensitive, Fever, and Friends and Strangers (Blue Note, 1978), the title track of his third album, all propelled to gold status.

The Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia is located at 12th and Market Streets in Center City. Doors open at 6:30pm for the 7PM show and 9:00pm for the 9:30 show. Discounted parking is available. For more information, contact the Hard Rock Cafe at (215) 238-1000.
