The Newports blues • rock • soul
Saturday, Nov. 30 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)
The Newports, Harbor Country’s favorite blues/rock/soul ensemble, returns to the Acorn with both new original songs and their own unique take on blues, rock and soul favorites. The Newports' roots are in Chicago's south suburbs in the mid-1960s, and their eclectic mix of blues, rock, funk, and soul reflects the south side vibe of that era. The band's sound features a soulful four-piece horn section, the harmonica magic of Jumpin' Gene Halton, R&B keyboard and vocal stylings of Eddie Beard, and the high-energy guitar and vocals of wild man Mark Rongers.
Box Office opens at 4:00pm ET
