Webb Wilder at Boondocks

Looks like this event has already taken place.

2909 North Dirksen Parkway, Springfield, IL 62702

Webb Wilder hits the stage at Boondocks on Friday March 29th.

Beginning with 1986's classic debut, It Came From Nashville, Wilder emerged as a barnstorming hero who delivered a peculiar mix of Rockabilly, poetry, and tomfoolery. These days, some folks call Wilder's music Americana, though it is as impacted by mods and British Invaders (of the guitar-wielding kind) as it is by the Country music he's heard all his life. It's also influenced by the Blues and R&B sounds recorded by his Aunt Lillian, who founded Trumpet Records and recorded Elmore James and Sonny Boy Williamson. To throw more genres in the mix, Paste Magazine put It Came From Nashville on their list of the "50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All Time."
