Singer/Songwriter troubadour Jonathan Richman puts on more than a concert, he hosts a party! Interaction with the audience is an integral part of the performance. Jonathan has been playing music, recording and touring for most of his life. In the 1970s his band The Modern Lovers was influential on the then-burgeoning punk rock and later new wave and indie musical styles. The band’s first album is on Rolling Stone magazine’s lists of greatest albums of all time. Jonathan’s songs have been covered by Iggy Pop, David Bowie, the Sex Pistols, and Siouxsie & the Banshees.
