Having earned a reputation as one of America's foremost full blooded rock and rollers, firstly as a member of Green on Red, and then as the author of a number of increasingly brilliant albums with his band Mission Express, culminating in the monumental Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins, Chuck Prophet’s impeccable talents are occasionally overshadowed by the brilliance of his electric music. His acoustic shows are few and far between, so this is a rare opportunity to see one of contemporary music’s most gifted songwriters up close and personal. Accompanied by wife, and member of Mission Express Stephanie Finch, this is an essential show for anyone interested in life affirming music delivered with heart and soul.
Also appearing is Jesse Malin. A New York stalwart with a unique gift for delivering introspective songs with a punk attitude, his last release Meet Me at the End of the World, was described as a mix of Lower East Side grit and Simon & Garfunkel Americana pop. Drawing on influences ranging from The Ramones to old friend and occasional bandmate Ryan Adams, Jess Malin is equally at home with an acoustic guitar as he is fronting a full blown band.Chuck Prophet Website Jesse Marlin Website
