Live music performed by Jack Gorham in the STARworks Cafe and Taproom. No admission fee, but tips for the performers are greatly appreciated. All ages welcome! Feel free to bring in takeout or have pizza delivered.
Jack Gorham’s music frequently draws comparisons to artists whose styles are as far flung as Billy Joel and Randy Newman to the poetic likes of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits. Whether it is a sweet love song, a bluesy, toe tapping romp or a contemplative musing about time and the human condition, it is readily apparent that at the heart of Gorham’s work is a desire to communicate ideas and emotions directly to the willing listener. His words and melodies work hand in hand to transplant audiences to the world Gorham creates. It is not uncommon for Jack to riff on the origins of his songs, giving insights into the inner workings of his storytelling process before the first note is played. Other times he moves swiftly from song to song leaving interpretations entirely up to the listeners. However the music is presented, those in attendance of a Jack Gorham performance are touched in some way and often leave with a new perspective after the experience.
