‘Human iPod’ to perform concert at WWU

The “Human iPod,” John
Rush, will perform at 6 p.m. Wednesday (Aug. 28) on William Woods University’s Junior Lake dock. He has been called a
Human iPod ” because he can
play more than 65
hours of music and never
repeat a song.  
 
The WWU concert is free and open to the public.
The audience is encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the
concert.
 
Rush presents a musical journey like no other one-man show.
Singing and playing guitar/bass/harmonica/piano/banjo/keyboard
and percussion, he plays his own original music and popular,
well-known
songs.
 
Wowing audiences with his guitar work and capturing them with
his voice and lyrics, Rush won Campus Entertainer of the Year and Campus Awards
Musician of the Year. He is making a name for himself in the college campus
and club circuit, averaging more than
 200 dates a year.
With a set list that
covers more than
 200 different bands,
he plays
 originals and/or
covers,
 depending upon what
the audience requests. 
 
 
Rush has opened for Fuel, Eve 6, Edwin McCain,
Matt Kearney, Keller Williams and Howie Day, and he has played on stage with
the Dixie Chicks, Rob Thomas
(Matchbox 20) and Joe Pisapia (Guster). 
His style is part Jack Johnson and part Jimi Hendrix.
 
Originally from
Huntsville, Ala., Rush first learned to play guitar at the age of 12. After
playing in jazz and rock
bands through high school, he went
to the University of Georgia on a
classical guitar scholarship. After leaving Georgia, he
moved to Nashville, Tenn., where he quickly became a must-see show in the bar scene
before taking his show on the road.
The John Rush concert is part of the annual President’s Concert and Lecture Series, which brings speakers and top entertainment to campus for the
enjoyment of students and the community. For more information on the concert,
