Jim Camacho Celebrates “Make It to the Morning Light” Release, Opens for Denny Laine 3/10

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jim Camacho Celebrates New Single, Opens for Denny Laine at the Culture Room March 10

Miami, FL – February 24, 2016 – Prolific Miami singer-songwriter Jim Camacho will be celebrating the release of his latest single and video “Make It to the Morning Light”, as well as opening for the legendary Denny Laine(Moody Blues, Paul McCartney and Wings) on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at the Culture Room (3045 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33306), beginning at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $20 and the show is open to all ages. Tickets are available online by clicking here: bit.ly/JCMDennytix. For more information, visit www.JimCamacho.com or call 954.564.1074.

The evening will serve as a celebration of the release of Jim’s new song “Make it to the Morning Light”, a catchy life-affirming, world music-tinged number inspired by the artist’s recent trip to South Africa. The video was produced and edited by frequent collaborator Juan Davila from 2Way Creative, who also shot and edited Jim’s clip for NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest, an acoustic version of “Big Little World”, which is similarly positive and uplifting.

Camacho’s band, featuring Jordan Welch on drums, Fritz Dorigo andFernando Perdomo on guitar, plus Jim on bass, keys and acoustic guitar, will also include Steph Taylor on keys, acoustic guitar and background vocals andMichael Mut on bass. The group will play the new song – in addition to having it screened at the performance – as well as cuts from Jim’s solo period, his time with The Goods, the band he co-founded and led in the 1990s, and some other surprises.

Along with Paul & Linda McCartney, Laine co-founded Wings, which was one of the most internationally successful bands of the 1970s. The band had 24 hit singles at the top of the charts and won a Grammy for their landmark album “Band on the Run.” Denny co-wrote the world wide hit “Mull of Kintyre” with Paul and in 1977 it became the biggest selling single of all time in the United Kingdom. It ironically broke the sales record for the previous biggest UK single; The Beatles’ “She Loves You”.

Denny, an original member of the Moody Blues, sang the band’s first major hit single “Go Now” in 1964. After a few years, he left the Moody Blues to pursue his solo career managed by the Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein. After Wings, Denny has continued to have a successful touring and recording career to this day and his passion for music and his love and appreciation of his fans can be seen at every one of his shows.

Laine’s very special, one-night only performance will feature hits from his time in Wings and the Moody Blues, as well as songs from his impressive solo catalog. For more information about Laine, visit www.DennyLaine.com. For more about Camacho, navigate to www.JimCamacho.com.
