Talented local singer/songwriter John Michael Presney will play live in concert on Monday, October 7 at the famous Davenport's Piano Bar & Cabaret in Chicago, Ill. Jeff Award Winning pianist/producer/arranger Austin Cook and virtuoso fiddle player Lauren Vogel to join.

Chicago-native John Michael Presney returns home after touring as Carl Perkins in the Tony Award winning Broadway musical "Million Dollar Quartet" for two years to play a special one-time-only unplugged show at intimate Davenport's Piano Bar & Cabaret in Wicker Park.

"The Nighttime and The Dawn" explores the cross-section of Americana, folk-rock, and anthemic, arena-filling rock and roll," said Presney. "It's the true expression of heartbreak, love, and the road."

"Presney's ability to distill these separate styles into a cohesive sound gives his music an originality and progressiveness worthy of listening and respecting," said The Illinois Times Music Critic Tom Irwin. "Bringing it all back home" in an inventive, provocative and listenable way."
