Jack Klatt, The Corsairs with Chris Casello, Joe Wortell & The Western Stars
Presented by Chicago Honky Tonk. Doors open at 7 pm.
JACK KLATT: Part balladeer and part bluesman, Jack is a dedicated songwriter and finger-style guitarist based in Minneapolis, MN. His unique sound defies genre with influences that pull from a wide range of American music. From Rhythm and Blues and early Rock N’ Roll, to country and folk music Jack brings his unique voice to all of his songs. In the word of Americana Roots UK "Jack doesn’t rely on other writers for his diversity, he can write in pretty much any musical style of his choosing.” He’s won recognition from the MN state arts board, recorded alongside “Spider” John Koerner, and made it onto Daytrotter’s list of best songs in 2014. His 2016 release “Shadows in the Sunset” has been praised as “an eminently satisfying, slow rolling, Country/Blues album” by No Depression and made it onto Saving Country Music’s list of 2016 essential albums.
THE CORSAIRS featuring CHRIS CASELLO: We are a burning hot rockabilly band from Chicago. Mixing hillbilly music with rhythm and blues, we create new fangeled music everybody is dancing to. https://www.facebook.com/chriscasellocorsairs/
JOE WORTELL & THE WESTERN STARS: Joe Wortell and the western stars are a Four-piece Classic Outlaw country band from Chicago and Nashville that play clever and inspired arrangements that fuse subtle hints of Blues, Surf, R&B and Pop with the great songs of Hank, Waylon, Merle, Cash and beyond. These along with their fine crafted originals can veer into spirited improvisational jams but never stray too far from the essence of a great song. https://www.facebook.com/joewortandthewesternstars/
