About the event
JOHN HALL BAND REUNION
Well known founder of the band Orleans, John Hall is an American musician, congressman, environmentalist and community leader. He brings together the John Hall Band Reunion show for our 2018 Lambertville New Hope Winter Festival Concert which is sure to be an exciting evening full of storytelling and fantastic music!
Prior to forming Orleans in 1972, John Hall wrote and directed the music for several Broadway shows. In early 1972, John's local jam band in Woodstock became Orleans with Wells Kelly, Larry and Lance Hoppen. Orleans recorded four albums in the seventies scoring radio hits with 'Still The One' and 'Dance With Me'. John left Orleans in 1978 and made two solo records, "John Hall" and "Power". The latter featured the anti-nuclear anthem ‘Power’ which later became the theme of the No Nukes concerts, recorded by the Doobie Brothers with James Taylor.
After several years of direct community involvement, John successfully ran for Congress in 2006. Congressman John Hall represented New York's 19th district consisting of five counties in the lower Hudson Valley from 2007 – 2011.
He then returned to private life, and a life of music; writing songs again, performing solo and with Orleans, and continuing with his environmental leadership.
Along with Hall’s latest CD, “Rock Me On the Water”, John published a book documenting his music and political career: Still the One: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Journey to Congress and Back.
This marks the first time the 1981-’83 quartet of Hall, Leinbach, Troy and Parker have been on stage together in decades. John and all the band members are also part of the Orleans' legacy; look for performances of STILL THE ONE, DANCE WITH ME, HALF MOON, and other songs part of the Orleans and John Hall catalogue. The John Hall Band reunion members are: Bob Leinbach, Fly Amero, John Troy, Eric Parker, Peter O'Brien, and Orleans’ founder John Hall!
