Most people recognize Chris Isaak from his 1989 hit "Wicked Game," an ode to the pitfalls of love that swells with his signature falsetto and moody guitar chords. But the longtime troubadour is anything but a one-hit wonder—he has amassed 13 albums over his career, making a name for himself through his seamless blend of rockabilly, surf rock, and roots music. His latest release, Beyond the Sun, finds the singer retracing his steps from California back to Memphis to pay tribute to the musicians who influenced his sound. A love letter to Sun Studios, the seminal Memphis recording powerhouse founded by Sam Phillips, the album teems with lovingly crooned tunes by Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis, all performed with a dash of Isaak's own flair. "These guys discovered this music for us and we had to rediscover it," he muses on his website. "There's no way to do it exactly like they did it, so you've gotta give a little bit of your own take on it."

During their live shows, Isaak and his crack backing band play with the effortlessness of old friends, often breaking out into choreographed shimmies and duck walks on upbeat cover songs such as "Great Balls of Fire," "Miss Pearl" and classic originals such as “Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing” and “Blue Hotel.” Isaak has a jovial and quick-witted relationship with the crowd, bantering with them as the shifting stage lights glint off his mirrored suit and settle into his signature pompadour for a quick nap.

Joining Chris in this special concert benefiting children’s reading programs, singer-songwriter Kat Edmonson coos jazzy tunes from her iTunes chart-topping album Way Down Low in a style NPR describes as “memorable and contagious.”

The Murat Theatre at Old National Centre

Past the glimmering main lobby, past the Middle Eastern accents and hand-carved murals of the Egyptian Room, past the Victorian splendor of the Corinthian Hall, Old National Centre’s Murat Theatre continues the venue’s brand of elegance. Therein, row upon row of red-upholstered seats face a proscenium-style stage that entertains crowds with Broadway shows and musical acts. Overhead, the soft warmth of a chandelier ringed by a floral mural offsets the brilliance of the stage lighting and the performers’ flashlight-juggling routines.
