68 Main St., Torrington, CT 06790. Phone: 860-489-7180.

Infinity Hall presents B. B. King with Kal David at the Warner Theatre October 8, 2014 at 8PM.   B.B. King isn't just "the King of Blues," he's an American treasure who is cited as the most influential blues musician of all time. King's unique blend of blues, jazz, swing and mainstream pop coupled with the tone of his famous Gibson guitar "Lucille" have produced scores of hits such as "The Thrill is Gone," "Why I Sing The Blues," "When Love Comes To Town," "Payin' The Cost To Be The Boss," and "Every Day I Have The Blues." B.B. King is as alive as the music he plays, and a grateful world can't get enough of him. As the former lead singer/lead guitarist of the Fabulous Rhinestones, lead guitarist of John Mayall's Blues Breakers and Etta James' Band, Kal David is considered by many to be the finest blues singer/guitarist today. Kal met his singing, writing and production partner, Miss Lauri Bono, who is a featured member of Kal's band while living in Woodstock.
