Pure Prairie League

Saturday March 18, 2023 at 8 PM

Country rockers Pure Prairie League took their name from an obscure 19th century Temperance Union mentioned in the 1939 film, “Dodge City.” But this distinctly American band, with it’s 50 year career and long line of top hits, escaped obscurity long ago. Although fan favorites right out of the gate it took a number of years before PPL, formed by vocalist/guitar player Craig Fuller, had their first hit.

They couldn’t have picked a better way to start, and “AIMEE” not only put PPL on the map, but went onto become perhaps the most well-known and beloved country rock song of all time. Somewhere along the line Fuller left to replace Lowell George in Little Feat, but PPL continued to grow and prosper, with Mike Reilly as well as Country superstar Vince Gill, who was part of the band for a short time. Fuller eventually came back, and stayed for over a decade. Although Fuller is retired from full time touring, he sometimes joins the band for occasional shows. PPL continues to tour and treat their legions of loyal fans to music that sounds as good today as it did when it was first performed.

“People come to hear the music the way it was played back then,” Fuller says. “We may have improved on the fidelity, but when we do a song off one of our records, we do it just as it was recorded.”Whether they are “Pickin To Beat The Devil,” or taking you riding down a “Two Lane Highway,” PPL is a sure fire good time.
