Eliot Lewis will return to the Jones Mansion for a double shot of his trademark fusion of rock and soul on May 16 and 17.

Doors for the 7 p.m. Thursday show open at 6, and doors for the 8 p.m. Friday show open at 7. Elijah’s will be open for cash bar selections.

Tickets are $20 per person and seats are reserved by a first-sale, first-seated process. They can be purchased by calling 419-427-6110, and they will not be sold at the door.

Personal cancellations or no-shows will not be refunded or applied to a future event, though ticketholders may personally transfer their ticket to someone else as long as they advise the mansion of the change.

A singer-songwriter who has mastered guitar, keyboard, bass and drums, Lewis is a key member of the Daryl Hall and John Oates band who has appeared in every episode of Hall’s web and television series, “Live From Daryl’s House.”

His stint on the show has led to many musical collaborations, including performances with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek of the Doors, Joe Walsh, Cheap Trick, Todd Rundgren, Train, Grace Potter, Ben Folds, Booker T, Jewel, Rob Thomas, Keb’ Mo’, Jason Mraz, Darius Rucker, Gavin DeGraw and many others. He also spent several years in Average White Band as a writer, performer and producer.

Lewis has been interested in music since he was young, and he cited Jeff Beck, Billy Gibbons and Peter Frampton as his early guitar heroes. He even got the chance to jam with Frampton at the age of 14.

His most recent solo album, 2016’s “Adventure,” is a set of 10 original compositions with a cover of Mott the Hoople’s “Ready for Love.”

According to his website, the record is a stripped down rock and soul effort meant as a contrast to slickly produced, automatically tuned music.

And while his sound may be stripped down, his travel log isn’t. Lewis has performed at the Hollywood Bowl and Japan’s Budokan arena while appearing all over television, including “The Voice,” “The View,” the “Today” show, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and more.
