Cliff Johnson & The Raine
Doors open at 7 pm.
CLIFF JOHNSON & THE RAINE: Power pop icon Cliff Johnson, the driving force behind legendary Chicago bands Off Broadway, Pezband and d’Thumbs returns home, backed by his new band, The Raine to showcase timeless signature songs “Stay in Time,” “Hang on For Love”, “Full Moon Turned My Head Around” and more in a career spanning set of classics. Johnson, who cut his teeth in the clubs of Chicago, went on to release two discs for Atlantic Records. Off Broadway’s “On” featuring the hit, “Stay in Time” sold over 300 thousand copies in Chicago alone and propelled Cliff and the band into the world of stadiums and arenas, sharing the bill with the likes of The Beach Boys, The Babys, Cheap Trick, Lover Boy, Ian Hunter, Alan Parsons and Jefferson Starship. The Raine members are veterans of the Chicago rock scene playing along side local heroes such as The Kind and The Insiders as well as national acts like A Flock of Seagulls. A rock music critic recently suggested that The Raine is "the best kept secret in the Chicago Music scene, today.” https://www.facebook.com/Cliff-Johnson-and-The-Raine-569662263191267/
