What to Expect
Get ready to experience a dynamic set from this seasoned band. They'll take you along for the ride from their most upbeat tunes down to their most vulnerable and heartfelt ballads.
The Midnight Purchase offers an outstanding live performance in any venue, from bar to club to festival stage.
Orlando Peña has performed his unique blend of indie/folk americana around the Midwest for near 10 years now, under many different names. It seems every state he spends some time in he finds a group of musicians to help bring his music to life and thus losing his own identity to that of a band.
Whether Fabled Plains, Hurrian, Lush Wagon, or his current line up, The Midnight Purchase, Peña’s soul remains the same. His songs are honest, and performed with a passion and poise that comes from years on stage. They range from somber, soothing love ballads to rowdy tales of misfortune and chances taken. What ever the line up, Orlando Peña and The Midnight Purchase always guarantee a fresh and exciting show to watch.
