Chuck Prophet and Mission Express put on one of the best rock n roll shows you’ll every see.

In an alternate universe Chuck Prophet is playing the arenas. His anthemic songs, bravado and showmanship propelled him there. In our universe he plays and builds Springsteen-length sets into acts of mesmerism. Chuck shapes the two hour show so that it builds to anthemic choruses and guitar solos toward the end before gentling down a little and sending us off into the night – it’s a very professional piece of work. At the same time, Prophet plays with the concept of rock and roll. He invites us to criss-cross the divide between rock image and rock reality, playing small (but cool) venues with tunes that capture the big picture. Breaking the music with regular chats and tales, always with a wink that says “this is how rock and roll works, you and I know it’s a game – play along and we’ll have a great time”. And we do. Chuck makes us believe in this terrific rock and roll show and we feel honored to get to witness it. – Vanguard
