Maple Street Concerts present Sons of the Never Wrong Sept. 23 in Lombard
Maple Street Concerts present Sons of the Never Wrong as part of its concert series on Saturday, Sept. 23.
The concert takes place at 7 p.m. at the historic Maple Street Chapel, 200 S. Main St. in Lombard.
"Opening our 2023-2024 season of the Maple Street Concert are Sons of the Never Wrong," said Melissa Dagenhart, booker and consultant for the series. "They are a Midwest favorite and connect with the audience through their energetic stage presence."
Sons of the Never Wrong, featuring Bruce Roper, Sue Demel and Deborah Maris Lader, is a turbocharged alt-folk trio from Chicago that delivers witty, whimsical songs with their signature soaring vocal harmonies and gorgeous arrangements.
Their oddball humor and spontaneous stories ignite their live shows and have earned them a cultlike international following for over 30 years. Combining influences of folk, jazz, pop and rock, their sound is wildly original, their energy is contagious, and their banter is hilarious.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online now at www.maplestreetconcerts.org.
Pending availability, tickets also will be available at the door, 30 minutes before showtime, with cash or check only.
The Maple Street Concerts series continues at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, with Ruth and Max Bloomquist. The Michigan duo draws on folk, bluegrass, traditional country, and more in creating their original rootsy Americana music.
At 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12, Robert Jones & Matt Watroba will be making their debut performance at Maple Street Concerts. The duo met over 35 years ago when they hosted back-to-back radio shows on WDET-FM (Detroit). In forging their musical partnership, they discovered a friendship based in mutual respect and a love for traditional American music: folk, blues, spirituals, work songs, chants, etc.
On Saturday, Dec. 2, it will be a "Jinglebell Jubilee Singalong" with Kilty Pleasure from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Part of the Village of Lombard's Jinglebell Jubilee event, they will supply the lyric books and song leaders; you supply your voices. Donations are appreciated to support the upkeep of the historic Maple Street Chapel.
Tickets are $20 for most shows except for the Dec. 2 show which will be freewill donations.
