The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation presents folk rock singer-songwriter John Batdorf. Widely known as one half of Las Vegas Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo Batdorf & Rodney, he has toured with Fleetwood Mac, The Doobie Brothers, Dan Fogelberg, Hall and Oates, and now he resides in Central Oregon! He tips his hat to his early influencers The Beatles and Buffalo Springfield whose inspiration you can hear on hits “Home Again,” “Somewhere in the Night,” and “Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang.” However, his first musical memory came with the band Chicago. “I snuck in the backdoor of The Whiskey and Chicago was on stage. I had no idea who they were, but damn, I did after that night. That was the best band I had ever seen live with three lead singers, great rhythm section, and horns. Needless to say, I was really inspired!” Central Oregon, don’t miss your chance to spend an evening with this folk rock singer-songwriter and inspirational musician.
