Webb Wilder and the Beatnicks

Bring the family to a musical extravaganza as roots ‘n’ blues stars Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks perform at Fitzgerald’s Night Club, Saturday, January 21, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Plus Chicago Hotel at Hillside!

Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks put the rock in rockabilly! Webb himself is a Nashville legend, calling himself the “last of the full-grown men.” Come hear the band play music from their 2015 album, “Mississippi Moderne,” which includes new Wilder songs and covers of songs by Otis Rush, the Kinks, Charlie Rich, and Jimmy Reed.

Webb Wilder is not a purist to one genre of music. He calls the band’s style “rock for roots fans and roots for rock fans.” He IS a purist when it comes to musicianship. Beyond the music business, Webb Wilder has appeared in Indie films and in “The Thing Called Love,” directed by the legendary Peter Bogdonavich. You might recognize Webb’s baritone voice on albums by the likes of William Shatner, his distinctive voiceovers for commercials, and his singing in the Disney films “Cars.”
