Cost: $18+,
CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Baritone vocalist Wilder may bristle at being called a roots rocker, but his combination of country, blues and rock fits the bill. He’s been at it since 1986, cranking out an intermittent stream of impressive albums mixing garage, country and rock with crafty lyrics and a diverse approach that those who like NRBQ should appreciate. He’s a funny dude too, punctuating shows with offbeat stories and songs. — HH

From the venue:

Webb Wilder

Long before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Music City there was a riddle spewing prophet of roots rock and roll. A bluesy blast of baritone bombast. Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll "? with a strong side of Outlaw Country. He is a force on tour and a tour de force. He is the last of the Full Grown Men and Roots Rock Royalty.

A native of Hattiesburg, Wilder's 1986 debut album, It Came from Nashville, was named one of the 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All-Time by Paste Magazine. Webb was honored to participate in Shemekia Copeland's recent Grammy nominated LP "Uncivil War"? co-writing and performing on the track "She Don't Wear Pink."? Webb's engaging personality led him to become one of America's first Satellite DJs on XM Radio. He's now a DJ and the host of the Americana Countdown show on WMOT radio/Nashville as well as continuing his three decade career as an Electrifying Artist on stages worldwide. His newest release is "Night Without Love"? released in 2020 on Landslide Records.

"With his obvious love of British rock and Southern roadhouse, Wilder could be a kind of Tom Petty for the trailer set." - San Francisco Chronicle

"These days the term "?roots rocker' is almost meaningless, but Wilder's blend of a rocker's heart with a hillbilly's soul is probably the best aural definition of it yet."? Time Out Chicago

"Discover the mystery, the madness, and the magic of the man called Wilder. A giant standing proudly above lesser talents."? That Devil Music
