Film and television viewers remember John Corbett best for his roles in "Sex and the City," "Northern Exposure" and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." But audiences at Chicago's City Winery on Feb. 13 were introduced to another side of the popular actor.
Corbett showcased his musical talents on stage at the intimate venue during a nearly three-hour show featuring country tunes from his albums "Leavin' Nothing Behind" and the self-titled "John Corbett."
The actor/musician and his band proved an exuberant bunch as they powerfully performed a selection of uptempo tunes and ballads. Corbett was also quite personable on stage as he interacted with fans and talked with his band members.
In addition to chatting about the songs he was performing, he also added comments about touring, talked about other places he'd performed in the Chicago area in past years and said how much he liked City Winery's atmosphere. Corbett also talked about some of his acting projects and mentioned he's currently the "voice" in the Walgreens' commercials which are airing now.
The singer/actor's country roster of tunes included engaging performances of "Good to Go," "Revival," "Cash," and "Wichita." Corbett and his band seemed to be a tight-knit group of musical brothers with a real passion for entertaining and playing.
After the show, Corbett joined fans in the dining area where he mingled, took pictures and signed autographs. Opening for Corbett at City Winery was Jace Everett.
