In 1977, John McEwen and the rest of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band made history...doing something no other act had done: They were the first American music group ever allowed by the Soviet Union to tour Russia.
They played 28 sold-out shows in five cities...despite the fact that there was a fear that rock and roll was a capitalistic plot to overthrow communism.
John is also one of the founding members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band will be playing Thursday night, June 4th at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills.
Doors open at 6:00pm, show starts at 9:00pm.
