About this Event

(General Admission)

WEBB WILDER / TOM GRAY

*****************************

Webb Wilder

Inducted into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame “The Home Office for American Music” He’s there alongside Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, BB King, Muddy Waters, Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley, Sonny Boy Williams and Jimmy Rogers.

Long before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Music City there was a riddle spewing prophet of roots rock and roll. A bluesy blast of baritone bombast. Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll. He is a force on tour and a tour de force. He is the last of the Full Grown Men and Roots Rock Royalty Hardly a purist, Webb Wilder has described the music he makes as, “Rock for Roots fans and Roots for Rock fans.” Growing up in Hattiesburg, MS, he spent some years in Austin before setting his new home, Nashville, on its ear with his unique hybrid sound – was this music Country? Rock? Rockabilly? Blues? What it was was popular, and he found himself touring worldwide – and growing legions of his Loving Public. His critically acclaimed indie films made him a cult hero. He was also one of America’s first Satellite DJs on XM Radio.

His new CD, Mississippi Moderne, is the 10th Webb Wilder album. His last 2 CD’s on Blind Pig Records both reached #1 on the Roots Rock chart – and stayed there for many weeks. Using all manner of media, Webb Wilder has been impacting popular culture for over 30 years, all the while maintaining a devoted worldwide fan base through a relentless tour schedule. As a singer, guitarist, bandleader, actor, songwriter and humorist, he may be roots-rock's only true Renaissance man.

“Webb flat out rocks! They serve up potent Southern comfort.” Rolling Stone Magazine

"With his obvious love of British rock and Southern roadhouse, Wilder could be a kind of Tom Petty for the trailer set." - San Francisco Chronicle

“These days the term ‘roots rocker’ is almost meaningless, but Wilder’s blend of a rocker’s heart with a hillbilly’s soul is probably the best aural definition of it yet.” Time Out Chicago
