Grammy Award-winning artist Bruce Hornsby and his band, featuring Steve Kimock, with special guest The Slip Sunday, will perform at 8 p.m. Sept. 22 in the Mainstage theater in the Center for the Arts, North Campus. The show is being presented by the Center for the Arts and UB Athletics Special Events, and is sponsored by WGRZ-TV and WJYE-FM.

Since he emerged in 1986 with his triple-platinum debut album, "The Way it Is"-which earned him a Grammy Award for Best New Artist-Hornsby had delighted in stretching his own creative boundaries and challenging the parameters of the mainstream music world. During the course of his career, the Williamsburg, Va., native has turned jagged, Keith Jarrett-style piano solos into Top 10 hits and has pursued everything from polished, swinging pop to rootsy Southern paeans and gritty juke joint soul.

Tickets are $33, $29 and $25 for the general public, and $31, $27 and $23 for UB students. They are available in the CFA box office from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and at all Ticketmaster locations. For more information call 645-ARTS or go to http://www.arts.buffalo.edu.
