Wayne Kramer Tickets for Sale

After completing two years in prison, Kramer was released and eventually he shifted to New York City. In NYC he collaborated with Johnny Thunders and formed the band ‘Gang War'. He was with the band for a short period of time. In the 1980s Kramer was not very active in the music world. He got back into the world of music and embarked on his solo career in 1994. He came out with several records, including 1995's ‘The Hard Stuff', produced by Don Was, an earlier associate from the late 1960s Detroit rock scene.
Kramer, and other surviving members of MC5, united in 1991 in a memorial concert for earlier lead singer Robin Tyner, who died from a heart attack.

This ignited a reunion tour that traversed a number of years and included dates in Europe and America. The reformed band also performed and recorded several shows with GG Allin.

Wayne Kramer was born on April 30, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan and was involved in music right from childhood. He along with Fred "Sonic" Smith founded the popular Detroit rock group MC5. The band that was initially managed by John Sinclair, a radical left-wing writer and co-founder of the White Panther Party, frequently gigged at Detroit's renowned Grande Ballroom. In 1970 Jon Landau replaced Sinclair as the creative manager of the band. In 1972, the band disbanded and subsequently Kramer got involved in drugs and crime. In 1975, he was arrested for selling cocaine to undercover federal agents and was sentenced to two years at the Lexington Federal Prison in Lexington, Kentucky. While in prison, he came across jazz trumpeter Red Rodney, who had played with Charlie Parker's quintet. The duo got along together and played in the prisons' Sunday chapel.
