RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Dave Davies, guitarist for the Kinks, will perform at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Ridgefield Playhouse.
Davies will play solo songs and Kinks classics, showcasing his writing style along with the unique guitar sound he created. Joining Davies on stage will be Smithereens drummer Dennis Diken, and from the Jigsaw Seen guitarist Jonathan Lea and bassist Tom Currier.
Davies' unique guitar sound propelled the Kinks into stardom with such hits as "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night," followed by numerous other classics over the next decades.
“The Kinks were one of the bands responsible for turning rock 'n' roll into rock. As lead guitarist and co-founder of the Kinks, Dave Davies is one of the most unpredictable and original forces in rock,” says writer Bill Crowley. “His distinctive guitar style went on to have major impact on several key guitar-rock styles, including heavy metal and punk. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Dave's massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day."
