quote www.tucsonunderground.com : Legends Al Perry
He's like an old-school preacher; timeless voice, stern demeanor, but a twinkle escapes those pale eyes once in a while. Laconic, ironic, dedicated to curating what used to be known as country and western, Al Perry is a testament to the best of live music in Tucson. Most local musicians belong to the Church of Al Perry, as do music lovers in Europe and Australia. As for the Tucson crowd, we've pretty much agreed that most of us are about one degree of separation removed from Al. He occasionally slips off to the Bay Area; everyone simply says, "He'll be back." They are always right.
