There are really only a handful of singer-songwriters in the history music that made a long term impact on pop culture. Some of them being Bob Dylan, Bob Seger, Kurt Cobain, Bruce Springsteen and James Taylor.

Of course, another name that has to make the list is the one and only – Chuck Berry. Chuck was one of the most influential songwriters of all time. I didn’t really appreciate his music until after his passing back in 2017, but now looking back at his catalogue of music, I have a new found respect for it.

For obvious reasons you won’t be able to see Mr. Berry perform those songs live anymore. You can, however, see the “Hail Hail Rock-N-Roll” tribute to Chuck Berry on Wednesday, May 8th at the Le Musique Room in St. Michael. It's one of the best Chuck Berry tribute shows around. It’s definitely worth checking out. The show starts at 2 pm and tickets are available now for $24.
