Jeff Beck starts his Rock ‘n’ Roll Party tour tonight in Washington, D.C. Backed by The Imelda May Band, he’s supporting his recent CD and DVD, Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul. Beck and friends recorded that album last June at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York, where Paul used to play every Monday night, and they’ll be re-creating those ’50s-heavy performances on tour. Beck tells us, “It’s my one chance this year to show people that I can play that style and to play what I was playing when I was 15.”
Beck and Imelda May will perform on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno on April 7th.
Following this tour, Beck will start another leg of his Emotion and Commotion tour on April 13th in Salt Lake City
