SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY AND THE POOR FOOLS

Apr 28

SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY AND THE POOR FOOLS 

Pollak Theatre - 8 PM

Playing a wide range of music from Dylan, Mose Allison, Muddy Waters, NRBQ, Richard Thompson, Emmylou Harris, The Band, George Jones and more, The Poor Fools also dive into some of the Southside's Asbury Jukes material–revisiting some classics as well as the underperformed deep tracks. “The Poor Fools tour is a chance for me to try out different material and some Jukes standards in an acoustic-ish form. In this incarnation, musicians such as Jeff Kazee, John Conte, John Putnam, Neal "The Dude" Pawley and I will all be singing, playing, and having some fun on stage. It will be a loose mix of songs, stories and banter between the musicians and–hopefully–the audience. With Lyon shaking up each night's setlist for himself and his gang of multi-instrumentalist band members, these troubadours ride the rails of the runaway train known as Southside Johnny and The Poor Fools.

Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss…there will be special guest moderators and panelists at each event! This discussion will feature BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN'S Nebraska.
