JASON RINGENBERG, Saturday, 3/9, 7pm at The Varsity Center

JasonJason Ringenberg returns to Carbondale for his latest solo release – Stand Tall!

Stand Tall was recorded and co-produced by Mike Lescelius at Misunderstudios in Murphysboro and included local musicians Andrew Staff, Stace England, Robbie Stokes, Gary Gibula, Tom Miller, Adam Fletcher, Robert Bowlin, Beth Koehler, Kathy Livingston, Kyle Tripplett and Mike Kartje. Many of those musicians will be joining Ringenberg for the concert.

Ringenberg, a northern Illinois native, moved to Nashville in 1981 to pursue his dream of “making a band that could kick American Roots music into the modern age.” He formed Jason & The Scorchers and never looked back. In 1999, the “Godfather of Americana,” as Mojo magazine dubbed him, went solo. He has released five albums, with everyone from the BBC to USA Today lauding his songwriting. His high-octane, one-man show prompted The Times (UK) to call him “one of the most exciting performers of his generation.”
