TRYON—The Summer Tracks concert series in Rogers Park will continue on Friday, July 19, with the “Sweet Summer of Rock & Soul Revue.” 

This ensemble features Asheville’s and Summer Tracks’ favorite chanteuse, Peggy Ratusz, and brings together the area’s best vocalists and musicians for an evening of classic Rock & Roll. Joining Peggy on vocals are Reggie Headen and Jonathan Pearlman. 

Pearlman, a talented arranger, instrumentalist, and vocalist, has produced popular tributes to Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, and The Doors. Headen—who fronts Nighttime-Noon Band—possesses a powerhouse of a voice. He most recently blew audiences away singing lead in Pearlman’s Doors tribute.
