Online PR News – 07-February-2014 – Naperville, IL – Naperville Ribfest announces that its first major headliner for 2014 is Roger Hodgson, formally of the renowned classic rock band Supertramp.
Roger Hodgson is the legendary voice, writer and arranger of most of Supertramp’s greatest hits that led to more than 60 million record sales, including amazingly enduring songs like: "Give a Little Bit," "Dreamer," "It's Raining Again," "Take the Long Way Home," "The Logical Song," "Breakfast In America," "Fool’s Overture" and so many others that have become the soundtrack of our lives.
Hodgson co-founded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969. Through his 14 years with the band, he wrote and sang most of the classic hits that brought Supertramp worldwide acclaim. Roger recently received 2 awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for his songs being in the top played songs in their repertory, proving that they have indeed stood the test of time.
Hodgson’s performance will take place on the Navistar Main Stage at Knoch Park on the evening of Saturday, July 5. “We are excited to bring a band of this caliber to Ribfest and the Naperville area,” says 2014 Ribfest Chair Dan Deboo. “Roger Hodgson has written and sung dozens of great rock songs that have become standards. We are looking forward to a fabulous performance by the former lead singer of Supertramp.”
