You can't talk about Wreckless Eric without mentioning his enduring hit "Whole Wide World" - covered in stadiums and sheds from Aberdeen to Alabama - but there's more to him than just that.
With over 40 years of recording and touring behind him he shuns the dictates of nostalgia and doesn't do comebacks for the simple reason that he never went away. His 2015 album 'amERICa' was an urgent reminder of what he's about, and new album Construction Time & Demolition is a musically complex trawl through the psyche of a man with plenty to say and nothing to lose. It's always been that way: loud, dissonant, lyrical and gently melodic - cogent music for desperate times.
This marks the fourth year of the River Series at the Harbor Town Amphitheater, a series of live music shows that benefit the Maria Montessori School. The on-campus amphitheater, an underutilized and truly beautiful event setting on the Mississippi River in Harbor Town, showcases and celebrates the school, the river, the Harbor Town community and the musical talent of Memphis and beyond. We ask for a $5 donation per person at the door. For more information visit riverseries.org.
