Pokey LaFarge’s Central Time Tour Featuring Master of Ceremonies Dom Flemons, Joel Savoy, Jesse Lége & The Cajun Country Revival, The Tillers, and The Loot Rock Gang – Miami Univ – Middletown 9/16
Showman Pokey LaFarge is pleased to announce the Central Time Tour, a traveling variety musical experience. Performers joining Pokey on tour include “American songster” and founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops Dom Flemons, sounds from the Bayou with Joel Savoy, Jesse Lege, and the Cajun Country Revival, Cincinnati’s roots outfit The Tillers, and blues and roots from St. Louis with The Loot Rock Gang. “I’ve always been inspired by the revue tours of the mid-twentieth century. These tours sent a caravan of musicians, often from the same record label, to towns across America – big and small – for an evening of music and dancing.” says Pokey LaFarge. The tour will exhibit the show format of mid-century traveling revue tours and caravans, sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience for fans.
Showgoers are certainly in for an exciting evening, and an education will also be unavoidable for some. LaFarge says, “With the Central Time Tour, I want to broaden the appreciation of what it is that makes the Midwest a special place. I want to turn people on to quality music they wouldn’t likely hear on the radio. I want to celebrate our diverse American traditions, and above all, give the good people of the Midwest no choice but to dance, sing and put their minds at ease when the Central Time Tour comes to town.” Read more
