Bob Gerchen finds the beauty, the grit, the soul and the pathos in the work of Joe Cocker, with a little help from a crackerjack band The Hat-Ons and The Dogtown Horns. Bob sings Joe’s hits, but also some songs you might not know. He tells the story of Joe’s improbable rise and influence on American blues and soul (he got inside a lot of our souls), as well as on the life of the show’s creator. A Joe Cocker cabaret, in the big tent at Blue Strawberry.
