Singer-songwriter John Gorka with his incredible baritone voice and songwriting precision has been killing me for a long, long time, dating back to my years in Keene, NH during and after college. I haven’t seen him live in at least a dozen years and the wait continues because my dance card is full with Natalie Merchant on Thursday, October 23 down the street at The State Theatre.
But YOU should go see Gorka play, especially if you’re unfamiliar with him or have never seen him live.
I don’t mean to sound like the total music dork that I am, but Gorka’s music is truly something special.
The show is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 23. Tix are $25. Head her for all the info: onelongfellowsquare.com
Here are four of my favorite John Gorka songs.
1. “I’m From New Jersey”
2. “I Saw a Stranger With Your Hair”
3. “The One That Got Away”
4. and especially this one, about my favorite singer of all time. Here’s “Heart Upon Demand”
