JACK AND MIKE LANGLEY


SONGS YOU NEED TO HEAR WITH JACK AND MIKE LANGLEY

Mike Langley says, “I just had a fun conversation with Jack Langley about what we might play for you at the upcoming show. When I asked him for some songs he might play, Dad said he never knows until he gets there and looks at the crowd. Then, he sings them ‘the songs they need to hear.’

I smiled, imagining a Victorian-era mentalist show where The Great Langlini Sees All, Knows All, and in this case, Sings You the Songs You Need to Hear. Step right this way, folks...let the mind-melding begin, with songs of enduring beauty and meaning, selections from the soundtrack of life.”

Jack and Mike, who have both been inducted into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, will provide you with a wonderful evening and demonstrate once again why they are among Siouxland’s most versatile and accomplished musicians.
