"Signs & Signifiers is 10 years old this year, and we thought it would be a blast to head out on a short tour, and perform all the songs from the album, including some covers from that period, which is something weve rarely done...  I thought it could be a nice way to celebrate this little record that changed my life." - JD McPherson

Don't miss this special Belleville Roots Music Series presentation at the Elks Lodge Newburyport, MA.

J.D. McPherson...this renaissance man/hepcat seamlessly meshes the old and the new, the primal and the sophisticated, traditional American rock n roll with 50s rhythm & blues. McPherson brings a rarefied gift for mixing and matching disparate styles and textures, fusing Little Richard with a dash of Clash and Wu-Tang Clan, all unmistakably rooted in traditional R&B and unmistakably original.

If you went to middle school in Tulsa, Oklahoma, from 2008 to 2011, you may have been lucky enough to take a class with one Mr. McPherson. As the chair of the art department, he taught students about Andy Kaufman, organized an avant-garde art program and had a mixtape club that even the high school soccer players took part in.

"This is why I lost my job," the teacher says. "Maybe you shouldn't give 15-year old kids Bad Brains."
