The Coach House will host rockers Great White featuring Jack Russell, Friday, January 11, the next stop on the band’s current world tour.
“We’ve mainly stayed in the States but we’re going to Europe in February, and then on to Australia,” said Jack Russell, front man and co-founder of the original Great White. “Most of our fans are in the U.S. so we’ve stayed close, but we’re also anxious to go overseas.”
Although the band is currently working on a new album that they hope to release in mid-summer, Russell said the playlist includes mostly classic tunes.
“People really want to hear the songs they grew up listening to in high school, which is not a surprise. Sometimes we shake it up a bit with new songs but mostly we’re playing the staples and hits,” said Russell, adding that the band has enjoyed entertaining Coach House audiences since about 1985.
“It’s a really great place to see a concert. There’s not a bad seat in the house. You can practically spit on the performers; not that I suggest doing that,” he joked.
Russell promises a “really outrageous” show.
“If you want to do some rocking, come on down,” he said.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the band takes the state at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20. For more information, tickets or dinner reservations, see www.thecoachhouse.com or call 949.496.8930.
