“…no one can turn tales from the outer limits into catchy songs quite like Prophet does. He’s as original as the characters he brings to life, in all their tawdry, tattered glory.”—NPR Music
“If you go into a jukebox bar NYC and Garland Jeffreys ain’t on the jukebox, turn around. You’re in the wrong bar.”—Village Voice
Chuck Prophet has confirmed April tour dates in California with singer-songwriter Garland Jeffreys in a rare co-bill.
Critics lauded Prophet’s 2014 record Night Surfer as “twangy, jangly, pure-bred rock and roll” (Pop Matters). Jeffreys is known for his lively performance style: “He will still jump from the stage and strut through the audience. When one story ends there’s always another about to begin” (No Depression).
Across the five-city tour, the artists will perform solo and together, backed by The Mission Express, comprised of James DePrato on guitar and lap steel, Kevin White on bass, Vicente Rodriguez on drums, and Stephanie Finch on piano, organ, and guitar.
Chuck writes: “We’re thrilled to be backing Garland as well as doing our own thing on these shows. Garland came to see us at the Bell House in Brooklyn, and we worked up some songs for the encore. It was a blast, and we made big plans to do more. What can I tell you about Garland? (People get a kick out of hearing he was Lou Reed’s college roommate. Who swept the floor? With whom?) Hear for yourself.”
