About The Immediate Family
The Immediate Family began life as a studio project, recording Danny Kortchmar’s upcoming solo CD. The CD, which will be released early 2020, features guest performances by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, David Crosby and Michael McDonald. But the core band decided to keep the vibe going and take the project on the road. On guitar and lead vocals, Danny Kortchmar has played, produced and written for James Taylor, Don Henley, Carole King, Jackson Browne and many more. The Immediate Family will be performing many of his hit songs including Jackson’s “Somebody’s Baby,” and Henley’s “Dirty Laundry.” Also on guitar and vocals is Waddy Wachtel, the consummate rock guitarist who has played with many of the same artists, including many years with Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards and the late Warren Zevon with whom he co-wrote and produced a number of hit songs. Rounding up the band is one of the most recorded and revered rhythm sections in the world – Leland Sklar on bass and Russ Kunkel on drums. Together they have played on close to 5,000 records, many of them classics in the rock n’ roll pantheon. Lending guitar/vocals and co-production on the album is Steve Postell, a seasoned touring/session musician who has worked with Jennifer Warnes, David Crosby and many others. In addition to Steve, the band includes four of the world’s most iconic and recorded musicians.
