John Sinclair Live @ White's Bar

John Sinclair is an historical figure in the counterculture of America. He was the founder of the White Panther Party in the mid-sixties and established a political and communal base in Detroit and Ann Arbor through Trans Love Energies. It was a magnet for musicians, poets, and freethinkers. He was largely responsible for the success of MC5and their four year residency @ the Grande Ballroom.

John grew up with a deep and abiding love for Jazz and Blues and has toured the world performing his poetry with the backing of a loose and ever changing aggregation of top flight musicians. John has performed @ White’s Bar several times in the past 10 years and will grace our stage on Saturday November 3rd @ 6:30pm for a night of music, poetry and storytelling. He is a gentle man of peace and has seen the dark side of freedom when oppression ruled the day. He is a visionary who speaks the truth – clearly, with just a hint of anger and a weary shrug.
