Chicago favorite Ralph Covert will play a special show at Hey Nonny in Arlington Heights backed by a string section on Oct.14. Covert has a storied history as a writer and performer dating back to the 1990s.

This special night will feature Covert performing material from his early solo records, classics from The Bad Examples catalogue, songs from his Ralph's World music for young people, and he will debut some new material as well.


"We're pleased to welcome Ralph Covert back to our intimate venue at Hey Nonny," said owner Chip Brooks. "Having him perform with a string section will be a unique experience perfectly designed for our space."

During the performance Covert will be backed by a string quartet including Steve Gerlach and Michael Hartigan. Remaining tickets can be purchased at www.heynonny.com/shows/ralph-covert-w-string-section

Covert toured the world with The Bad Examples, displaying their unique power pop style. And the band still draws enthusiastic crowds wherever they perform.

Covert has also written and performed music for theater productions, including "The Flower Thieves" and "The Hundred Dresses."
