Over the last three decades, singer, songwriter and guitarist Gary Louris has built a deeply compelling body of music whose artistry and integrity has won the loyalty of an international audience and the respect of both critics and his peers. Best known for his seminal work with The Jayhawks, Louris is one of the most acclaimed musicians to come out of Minnesota..
In 1985, Louris co-founded The Jayhawks with Mark Olson, who in their initial two-decade career rose from their indie alternative country roots to international prominence. Alongside his time in The Jayhawks, Louris was a charter member of the part-time alt-rock supergroup Golden Smog, which at various times also included members of Soul Asylum, Wilco, The Replacements and Big Star.
Along the way he lent his writing, performing and production talents to projects with The Black Crowes, The Dixie Chicks, Counting Crows, Joe Henry, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Roger McGuinn, Maria McKee, Nickel Creek, Carrie Rodriguez, Tift Merritt, The Sadies, and The Wallflowers.
More recently, following a solo album, Vagabonds and a duo project with Mark Olson, Ready For The Flood, the two reconvened the classic Jayhawks lineup for a new record and tour. Released in 2011 on Rounder Records, Mockingbird Time marked a well-received return to the group’s trademark harmonies and pop sensibilities.
Kevin Bowe, a veteran Twin Cities songwriter, musician and producer brought his band The Okemah Prophets to The Park Theater in March. Bowe's resume includes platinum-selling and Grammy winning collaborations w/ Etta James, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Paul Westerberg, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Leo Kottke, Freedy Johnston and The Meat Puppets.
Bowe and his band were hand-picked by Louris to accompany him for his 2013 SXSW showcase, and are backing him again, as well as performing an opening set for this very special WOJB concert event. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!
Advance tickets are $20, available HERE or by calling 800-776-3689. Admission is $25 at the door.
