The Newports: blues rock soul w/opener Nomad Plants

  • Acorn Theater 107 Generations Drive Three Oaks, MI, 49128 United States (map)

The Newports. Harbor Country’s favorite blues/rock/soul ensemble, returns to the Acorn with their high-energy stage show. The band’s four-piece horn section features distinctive arrangements of styles ranging from Chicago blues to sixties R&B to the music of Bowie, The Doors, Little Feat, U2, The Allman Brothers, and more. And to the recipe searing guitar solos and high-energy vocals by Mark Rongers and the harmonica magic of Jumpin' Gene Halton, and you have a show not to be missed. Be sure to wear your dancing shoes!!! 

The Newports' roots are in Chicago's south suburbs in the mid-1960s, and their playlist of blues, rock, and soul reflects the south side Chicago vibe of that era. They reconvened (at the Acorn) in the summer of 2014 and perform regularly in the greater Chicago area, northwest Indiana, and southwest Michigan.
