New York’s Jack Grace Band to play in NilesPublished 8:37pm Wednesday, August 7, 2013
New York singer and songwriter Jack Grace will be in town for this week’s Niles Thursday Night Concert.
The free concert begins at 7 p.m. at the Riverfront Park Amphitheater.
The Jack Grace Band played Wednesday night in Marshall and heads next to a couple Chicago hangouts this weekend.
According to a biography at jackgrace.com, Jack Grace “has been most recently known as a country musician, but that designation belies the myriad of influences that shape his sound. It began with an obsession with the Beatles, and as a teenager, he wore out his Zeppelin records like so many of us. Later, when he discovered Neil Young, he wore those discs out too. His first band, Steak, had a Zappa-inspired sound, he was told, when he was barely aware of the iconic figure who couldn’t be bothered to stick to a single formula. Fitting. Later, after discovering he had a baritone eerily reminiscent of the great Johnny Cash, he added some steel to the mix and suddenly everyone was calling him country.”
