Like many in the audience, Simpson grew up a die hard fan of the soundtrack. As JC Superstar is arguably, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best work, this solo performance has evolved over nearly a decade and captures the complexity and the nostalgia of the original soundtrack. Simpson says it’s irreverent enough for a bar, and nearly reverent enough for a church.  Simpson manhandles the score through looping and multiple instrumentation. This show is for everyone who loves a good foot stomping rock opera, regardless of one’s religious affiliation or non-affiliation.

 

E.J.Simpson, formerly a member of the political rap group THE GOATS before touring internationally and recording 9 CD’s with the trio MAGGI, PIERCE And E.J.(MPEband). He is currently at work on his 2nd solo album while playing with various bands and songwriters in Philadelphia and New York as well annual performances of JCSuperstar and other tribute shows.
