On Friday, Sept. 20, Creed Bratton of TV's The Office and the 60s rock group The Grass Roots will be appearing at the Racine Civic Centre for a 7 p.m. performance.
Bratton’s solo show includes songs from the Grass Roots and tracks from his solo albums. “I’ll also be telling stories about being in Europe during the ’60s, and then moving on to stories from ‘The Office,’ ” he said. “It’s kind of like if Mark Twain had a guitar and had been on a popular TV show, and was telling anecdotes about it.”
Of The Grass Roots, who had hits with such songs as "Midnight Confessions," "Let's Live for Today," "Heaven Knows," "Two Divided by Love," "Sooner or Later," and "I'd Wait a Million Years," Bratton states, “we thought we were going to change the world. We were a heady bunch of individuals.”
In addition to his work on "The Office," Bratton’s been in such films as “Heart Like a Wheel” (1983), “Mask” (1985), and this year’s “Saving Lincoln."
Bratton's solo show will be held in Memorial Hall at Racine Civic Centre, 72 Seventh St. in Racine, Wisconsin. It is general admission with a cost of $20 at the box office or $ 26.80 online. Group tickets cost $15.
