Hollywood Nights: The True Bob Seger Experience coming to Potter Center

March 17, 2023

Bob Seger’s unforgettable music lives on with Hollywood Nights: The True Bob Seger Experience, coming to the Potter Center on April 1, 7 p.m.

This renowned New Jersey-based ensemble is devoted to reproducing the unique style of Bob Seger and his Silver Bullet Band, in the finest of detail. Hollywood Nights makes it their mission to take what Bob and his fans have learned, respected, and adored – such as working-class background and the enthusiasm of rock ‘n’ roll – and amplify it to its fullest extent. The band even tours with a baby grand piano to properly portray the atmosphere and experience of Bob Seger’s performances. Lead vocalist Rick Murphy vividly recalls his first experience hearing Bob Seger back when he was in sixth grade, actually waiting for the band KISS. Seger delivered a gritty performance he hadn’t heard before, and he made it his mission to listen to his songs any chance he could. Murphy continues to love the music that made such an impression!

“He was a force to be reckoned with and his stage show was all horsepower,” Murphy said. “Fast forward many years and here I am. Singing this guy’s songs with a killer band in front of thousands of people and catching the eye of someone in the audience unfamiliar with his music and knowing that I better deliver the goods to that fan as Bob did to me that night!”

Tickets for Hollywood Nights: The True Bob Seger Experience start at just $20. Contact the Potter Center Ticket Office at 517.796.8600 from Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or visit online at jccmi.edu/potter-center.
