Graham Parker

with special guest Ralph Covert

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

Tonight's concert will be a solo performance.

Graham Parker combines indelible hooks, penchant for the British blues-rock revival with a touch of the reggae and biting political commentary to produce an incredibly solid and consistent sound that channels Them-era Van Morrison, New York style Lou Reed, and the omnipresent Bob Dylan. Bruce Springsteen once said that the only band he'd pay to see live was Graham Parker and The Rumour, and Graham's renegade spirit and ear for hooks have only sharpened over the years.

"Parker's pub-rock snarl has worked its magic for generation." - Village Voice
