Scott Ligon's All Star Freakout
Doors open at 7 pm.
SCOTT LIGON'S ALL STAR FREAKOUT!: Scott Ligon (NRBQ, The Flat Five, Western Elstons) plays host to a gathering of some of Chicago's most versatile and talented musicians. Joel Paterson- guitar, Casey McDonough-bass, John Perrin-drums, Doug Corcoran-trumpet, tenor & baritone sax and Bongo Randy Rogers-percussion, make up an experienced and gifted lineup.
Jazz, Blues, Rock n Roll, Country & Soul…You name it. These guys (in one form or another) have played with everyone. Chuck Berry, Brian Wilson, Mavis Staples, Wanda Jackson, Booker T Jones, Roy Head, JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, The Cactus Blossoms, Robbie Fulks…The list is a mile long.
Scott Ligon (normally guitarist for the legendary NRBQ) plays Hammond B3 and brings his NRBQ compatriots McDonough and Perrin along for their feel and encyclopedic knowledge of music. Doug Corcoran, an extraordinarily talented multi instrumentalist, can be seen regularly on tour with JD McPherson. Joel Paterson is quite simply one of the most accomplished guitarists in Chicago and is leader of the Joel Paterson Trio (featuring the great Chris Foreman) at Chicago's own Green Mill Lounge. Bongo Randy Rogers is a master percussionist with a long list of musical credits. When all six get together, the talent and musicianship runs extremely deep. It's an All Star Freakout! Don't miss it.
