Chuck Prophet-Rescheduled Date

Posted: May 29, 2020 in News

Due to COVID-19 we have rescheduled Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express from Thursday 28th May to Wednesday 27th January 2021.

Chuck Prophet is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer is getting ready to put out a new album for 2020. Chuck started his wild ride as a kid back in 1984 when Green on Red plucked him out of Berkeley, CA and threw him in the van for an eight year ride and the recording of as many albums. Green on Red were seminal purveyors of American Roots-Rock and broke up in 1992 just before an entire movement followed in their wake.
