"Thanks, Sonny. This New Star Shining version is from 1994, originally commissioned for a "Woodstock Holidays" compilation CD released in Japan ... various Woodstock NY-based artsits, like ourselves. For all things Orleans,…"
Lance Hoppen is a singing bassist and guitairst, best known for his work as a co-founding member of the Pop/Rock band, Orleans, who brought you such Classic Rock hits as "Still the One" and "Dance With Me". Moving to Nashville in 1989 to reconnect with Kathie Baillie as one of "Baillie & the Boys", Lance has continued to work with many of Nashville's finest over the past two decades. Meanwhile, Orleans still performs all around the world and is now in its 36th year of "still havin' fun"!
Hey Wolf - Sorry for the delay. We had a huge week last week, with 2 gigs in Orlando before playing the annual show at Nashville's War Memorial Auditorium on Friday and then the Opry on Saturday. Yeah, imagine that .. Orleans at the Opry! Very cool.
If I can get the hang of this site I'll let ya'll know better about these shows as they happen.
Glad to be your friend on this site. I am also very happy to hear Orleans is going strong !! After all these years. More power to all of you. That's fantastic.
I don't make it to Nashville much anymore, although I used to live there in Franklin.
My business drew me away from there as much as I liked living in and around Nashville.
All the best
Hey Lance - we met a million years ago - I think at the Bottom Line and I think it was my friend Steve Buslowe [Meat's long time bass player] who introduced us. Anyway, good to know you're down here. It seems like everyone ends up down here sooner or later.
Hey Joe - great to hear from you, dude! Glad you know about the show. I am slammed with prep and promotion right up to the downbeat. I hope you'll come and tell your friends. It's not like we get to town every year ... and this lineup will kick serious ass! See you there!
