Bruce Hornsby is an American singer, pianist, accordion player, and songwriter. Known for the spontaneity and creativity of his live performances. Hornsby draws frequently from classical, jazz, bluegrass, folk, Motown, rock, blues, and jam band musical traditions with his songwriting and the seamless improvisations contained within. Hornsby has achieved recognition for his solo albums, performances, and his current live act Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers. Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers released a couple of live collections released eleven years apart; 2011’s Bride of the Noisemakers, a set of concert recordings from 2007 to 2009, and 2000‘s Here Come the Noisemakers, which initially unveiled Hornsby and his band’s free-wheeling live approaches to the Virginia-born pianist and composer’s memorable songs.
