Chris Isaak at Singletary Center for The Arts
November 17, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| $37
With Opening Act: Kat Edmonson
“The last time Chris Isaak was at the Singletary Center he took the stage in a red suit embroidered with flames, rocked out with a five piece band (and we mean ROCKED out), walked through the audience, sitting on laps and taking dollar bills from squealing fans and then returned for his encore wearing a suit covered in nothing but mirrors. His words to the audience – “I’m going to keep playing until you kick me out of here.” No one wanted to kick Chris Isaak out that night.
Isaak returns to Singletary with a new record in his discography – Beyond the Sun, which is truly a labor of love. As a child spinning his parents 45′s in their California home, this deeply committed artist has been obsessed with the glory days of Sun Studios in Memphis and the visionary artists who got their start there – including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. Isaak has acted on this lifelong obsession, magically recapturing the transformative hepcat brilliance of the classic sides cut by these greats at Sun Records druing the 50s, while also getting down to the heart and soul of his own deeply rooted musical identity.”
