The Tim Placher All-Stars
Over the last several years, Tim Placher, longtime Joliet musician and teacher, has assembled a cast of talented Joliet-area singers, songwriters and players—all artistically successful in their own right— and built a local musician “All Star” group that periodically stages popular “One Night Only” music theme shows. What began with Tim and singing partner Robyn Castle has grown to include 20 musicians representing some of the area’s most prominent bands and performers.
“Some people have called me a local ‘David Foster’ for being able to assemble and coordinate so many musicians who all have their own creative endeavors going,” said Placher. “But I think the main thing is that I’m pretty good at picking the right songs for the right performers, and giving these talented musicians an opportunity to step out of their regular music routines for a night of fun and camaraderie trying their hand at something new and different.”
That fun and camaraderie is infectious to local music fans who have packed Chicago Street Pub to see the shows. Now, Tim and crew will bring the shows’ musical highlights to the Rialto for a memorable one-night stand. Singers and musicians include John Condron, Allison Flood, Brian Motyll, Nikki Giblin, JRoss Green, Robyn Castle, Josh Nestor, Stacy Sienko, Gavin Coyle, Chloe Briese, Kevin McCammon, Alex Hoffer, Tom Maslowski, Ellis Wright, Patrick Wright, Will Cooper, David Francis, Ted Slowik, Dr. Mark Christensen, and a few special surprises! Plan to join the party on April 22 as this “supergroup” of local musicians and singers performs many favorite songs from some truly iconic artists!
