About the Young Bucs:
The Young Bucs started as a mostly acapella vocal group, doing doo-wop standards like Duke of Earl, Little Darlin’, Don’t Know Why I love You, and Come Go With Me. Then during one summer while Floyd went off to summer school, Les, Brian and John began singing at the Little Ole Opry at LTOB and different variations of Bucs have been regulars at both the summer shows and the Christmas Opry. In 2006, the Doo-Wop Bucs were invited to perform at the Southcoast Clambake Jazz Festival. With the addition of Drums, Keyboard/sax and stand-up bass, the Bucs were rockin’ and audiences were singing along and dancing up a storm. The Bucs have been Jazz Festival regulars ever since and just finished putting their stamp on the 2010 Jazz Fest.
Kenny Loggins to Perform at The Mill Casino
Waterfront Concert Schedule for Friday, August 20
North Bend, Ore. – This summer The Mill Casino * Hotel is pleased to present
Grammy- award winner and multi-platinum selling, singer-songwriter Kenny
Loggins, live in concert on Friday, August 20, 2010, outdoors on the
casino’s waterfront dock.

This concert is for those 21 or older.
Born in Everett, Wash., Loggins was raised in Los Angeles where he soon
landed a job as a staff songwriter, writing four songs for the Nitty Gritty
Dirt Band’s 1970 album Uncle Charlie and His Dog Teddy. It was during this
time he caught the attention of Jim Messina, who was working as a producer
at CBS. Loggins set out to record his solo debut with Messina as his
producer; however, as work progressed, Messina’s involvement increased,
resulting in 1972’s Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina Sittin’ In, featuring
such classics as “House at Pooh Corner” and “Danny’s Song,” which quickly
established the duo as one of the most significant recording and touring
acts of the 70s.
After Loggins & Messina split up in 1976, Loggins achieved solo stardom with
such million-selling albums as Celebrate Me Home, Nightwatch, Keep The Fire,
and High Adventure. Loggins won his first Grammy for “What A Fool
Believes”, a song he co-wrote with his long-time friend Michael McDonald of
the Doobie Brothers. And in 1980, Loggins won a second Grammy, this time
for “This Is It”.
In the 80’s, Loggins became even more famous, thanks to massive smashes like
“I’m Alright” (from Caddyshack), “Footloose” (from Footloose), “Danger Zone”
(from Top Gun), and “Nobody’s Fool” (from Caddyshack II).
Along with his many movie theme song hits, Loggins continued to record
albums that were introspective and deeply personal, including 1985’s Vox
Humana, 1988’s Back to Avalon, 1991’s Leap of Faith. The Unimaginable Life
(1997) and 2003’s It’s About Time. During this same period, Loggins took on
numerous other challenging recordings with a Christmas album, (1998’s
December) and two successful and acclaimed CDs for children: 1994’s radiant
Return To Pooh Corner and its worthy follow-up, More Songs From Pooh Corner.
