Details: An evening with JOHN GORKA at Cedar Cultural Center

“Wry, slice-of-life observations reminiscent of Lyle Lovett and John Prine” (Associated Press)

Rising from a milieu of lovelorn singer/songwriters, John Gorka chooses instead to illuminate with his trademark wordplay -- twisting, turning and combining words and phrases in the same way a balloon artist creates complex creatures from simple balloons. Gorka's keen ear picks up the stories of those along his path, which are then folded into poetry and song. By involving those tales in his music, he escapes the trap of introspection that hobbles lesser singer/songwriters.

John Gorka flies below the pop culture radar with an almost cult-like following that never fails to fill concerts. Speak with any of his fans and one instantly feel's their enthusiasm and genuine affection. His shy, almost self-effacing stage presence rightfully focuses attention on the songs. John's versatility on guitar and piano keeps his sets musically interesting, while his rich baritone effortlessly executes his bidding. And he's never short of the sly comment or clever joke that invariably ignites his audience.
