Saddle Up For This Event At The Library

Join Davenport Public Library Wednesday, November 3rd at 6:00 pm for a presentation by author William Hampes. When people think of television and film Westerns what tends to come to mind are the great feats of physical bravery of the heroes. However, as pointed out in Hampes’ book, Westerns And Cowboys Are Examined In Davenport Public Library Program“Cowboy Courage: Westerns and the Portrayal of Bravery,” many of these Westerns also portray examples of moral and psychological courage, often by ordinary individuals. The presentation will discuss how these films and television programs focus on finding the moral and psychological courage to love, to redeem oneself for failures, losses, and transgressions, to be honest and true to oneself, to admit when wrong and back down, and to face dying and the end of one’s life. The presentation will include video clips from various films and television programs.

William Hampes was a professor of psychology for 38 years at St. Michael’s College, Louisiana State University at Eunice, and Black Hawk College, where he is now a professor emeritus of psychology and sociology. Besides the publication of his book on film and television Westerns, Cowboy Courage: Westerns and the Portrayal of Bravery (McFarland, 2019) and the publication of his article, “A Woman with Influence: Henrietta Porter in the Television Series Trackdown,” in the Popular Culture Studies Journal, he has also had articles in the area of the psychology of humor published in academic journals.

This program is scheduled to be held in person at the Eastern Library (6000 Eastern Ave.) and virtually.

Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Rockin’ Adler Theatre

Adler Theatre and VenuWorks present Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. at the Adler Theatre in Davenport. Reserved seat tickets are on sale at the Adler Theatre Box Office (136 E. 3rd St.) and online at Ticketmaster.com. Tickets are $37, $49, $59 and $69.

Encompassing hits from the iconic band’s entire career, including albums Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin IV and Physical NEW CONCERT ALERT! Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Evening Coming To Davenport's Adler TheatreGraffiti, the concert event celebrates the life and music of Jason’s father, the legendary Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, with “…a band that recreates Led Zeppelin’s music to such a degree that one can’t help but close their eyes and simply listen…” Classic Rock Revisited

A lot of talented children have probably been asked by a parent to entertain family and friends, maybe in the living room, maybe sing a little, play an instrument. But when Jason Bonham was a small child and got called in to entertain, the family friends he played his drums for could be anyone from Jimmy Page to some of the guys from the group Bad Company. That’s what happens when your father is drummer John Bonham, one of the original members of the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin.

At the age of only five, Jason could play the drums, at least a scaled-down set of them, with skill. When he was 17 he was a member of the band Air Race. The group signed a record contract with Atlantic Records, recorded one album, and opened for big names like Queen, Meat Loaf, Ted Nugent, and AC/DC. John Bonham died in 1980, but Jason, who has marked a few places in music history himself, has stepped in from time to time to help keep his father’s memory alive.

In 1988, Jason took his father’s spot in the televised, first-ever Led Zeppelin reunion at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert, which included Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. Later that year, he went on to tour with Page and recorded the album Outrider with him.

By 1989, he completed the album The Disregard of Timekeeping, in his new band called “Bonham.” One of the tracks from this first effort, “Wait for You,” earned him a gold record. By 1992, with partners like Canadian vocalist Daniel MacMaster, guitarist Ian Hatton, and bassist and keyboardist John Smithson, Bonham finished another album: Mad Hatter.

Jason teamed up with greats like Paul Rodgers, Slash, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck and others in 1993 to work on a Tribute to Muddy Waters NEW CONCERT ALERT! Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Evening Coming To Davenport's Adler Theatrealbum. The record’s success brought a nomination for a Grammy Award. A year later, Jason, along with Rodgers and Slash, appeared at the memorable Woodstock II. That same year, he recorded a new album, Peace 4 Me, in his group now known as Motherland with Marti Frederksen on vocals.

With his sister Zoe by his side, Jason represented his father when Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in January 1995. He soon put together another solo project which culminated in In the Name of My Father – The Zepset, which featured the songs of Led Zeppelin. Proceeds from the album went to charity. The album followed up with When You See the Sun.

The Healing Sixes soon caught his attention, and Jason decided to tour and record with the Indiana-based band from 1999-2003. In 2001, Jason appeared in the film Rock Star, which starred Mark Wahlberg. The band in the movie, Steel Dragon, recorded the songs featured in the film and the soundtrack.

Following an album with Debbie Bonham, the younger sister of John Bonham, Jason was invited to drum for hard rock group UFO. In 2006, he also recorded with Joe Bonamassa.

Jason starred with Ted Nugent, Evan Seinfeld (Biohazard), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Scott Ian (Anthrax) on the VH1 reality TV show, “SuperGroup,” in May 2006. The musicians formed a band called Damnocracy for the show, during which they lived in a mansion in Las Vegas for twelve days and created music. Most recently, Jason has performed and recorded with Foreigner.

On December 10, 2007, Jason played drums in the most anticipated concert of all time – the Led Zeppelin reunion at London’s O2 arena with surviving members Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant.
