Randy Bachman to Perform at Club

Rock star Randy Bachman will perform at the Club's Independence Day Celebration on July 2.

The legendary guitarist and songwriter (pictured) behind such hits as "American Woman" and "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" will take to the New York Ballroom stage for an evening set of classics from his prodigious career in music.

Featured in the June issue of INTOUCH magazine, the 78-year-old Canadian is visiting Japan to be reunited with his Gretsch guitar that was stolen from a hotel in 1976.

Bachman is best known for his songs with The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

The Club show will be filmed as part of documentary about his long-lost 1957 Gretsch 6120 guitar.
