Nostalgic rock 'n roll act will headline Green Music Fest in Wicker Park on June 10. With a strong Chicago following and an equally strong discography to back them, this band seamlessly melds 50s and 60s rock ‘n roll with rockabilly and R&B. The band puts on an extremely energetic live show, which should be a perfect fit for the outdoor festival.
Oklahoma native JD McPherson seamlessly meshes the old and the new, the primal and the sophisticated, with music that satisfies traditional American rock ’n’ roll and R&B purists while also exhibiting his rarefied gift for mixing and matching disparate stylistic shapes and textures. With an unaffected take on vital American music and a voice that channels the spirit of Little Richard and James Brown, McPherson presents traditional rhythm & blues and rock n’ roll with fresh, exciting songwriting.
