Alan and I will be at the Lake Theater Monday.  This place is amazing.  It’s got great food, great drinks, great views, beautiful decor, and of course:  The Hager/Fleschner Duo.

July 14th, 6:30pm Hager / Fleschner Duo

Dave Fleschner’s piano work shows exceptional range, whether it’s a stride, New Orleans boogie or a Otis Spann-styled Chicago number, he can do it all with precision and flair. He has toured the country working with blues luminaries like Curtis Salgado, John Nemeth, Karen Lovely and Earl Thomas. Alan Hager is a guitarist’s guitar player, having been partners with local legends Terry Robb and Bill Rhoades. Rhoades complimented Hager by calling him the “most complete and accomplished musician he has ever worked with.” Although Hager can play lead with the best to be found anywhere, Rhoades also noted his adeptness at rhythm guitar, a lost art that makes Hager the perfect complement to any grouping he performs with. It is Hager’s rhythm that truly blends immaculately with Fleschner’s piano. In the live setting it keeps the music flowing and alive, as each takes their turn at soloing and sharing vocal leads.
