grew up when Motor City was
hot and happening. He’s drawn upon

of our time. This uncompromising
musician is the real deal. “Someday,
Someway” simply has to be heard
live. My Father’s Place, 1221 Old

Harum, known for the 1967 hit “A
Whiter Shade of Pale,” will play its
first Long Island show in five years
Lead singer and pianist Gary
Brooker expects nothing less than

Brooker tells the Press from his
home in London.
Audiences should not expect
only a play-the-hits nostalgia trip.

in some way, rather than keep on
doing the same old thing,” Brooker
