From opening night on February 12, 1974, when headliner Dr. John jammed with Stevie Wonder and Johnny Winter in front of an audience that included Mick Jagger, Carly Simon, Bette Midler and an SRO crowd of entertainment industry luminaries, The Bottom Line was destined to be a cultural touchstone and hub of the music industry. For the next 30 years The Bottom Line influenced and impacted millions of music fans, providing a rich soundtrack to their lives that reflected the changing times.
The Bottom Line tribute shows are part of the Schimmel Center’s 2017 – 2018 season which also includes Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy (10/6), comedian Kate Belant (11/2), and more. Tickets for the Bottom Line tribute shows are on sale now as part of Rock and Folk packages.
