Star of 'The Office' coming to Evansville

One of the stars of the NBC TV hit comedy series "The Office" is coming to Evansville in September.

Creed Bratton, the actor most recognized for his comedic portrayal of the quirky former '60s rock star in the sitcom, is actually a singer-song writer in real life, and he's going to be performing at the Victory Theatre on Saturday, September 21, at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the all ages show go on sale Friday, August 9, at 10 a.m.

Ticket prices are $15 and $20, but are subject to applicable fees.

They can be purchased at, by phone at 800-745-3000, at the Ford Center ticket office, or at the Victory Theatre box office the day of the show.

Born and raised in California, Bratton took up guitar as a boy and decided to play professionally after he graduated from high school in 1961.

While traveling through Europe and the Middle East, he met fellow Californian and guitarist Warren Entner, and the two teamed up to become a double-act, traveling from country to country.

He was the lead guitarist of the '60s group The Grass Roots from 1967 to 1969.

In Bratton's first year with them, the band's song "Let's Live for Today" became a No. 8 hit.

After leaving the band, he went into acting, but is still writing music as a solo act today.

Bratton has released a few albums under the label Kindred Music within the past decade, including his 2008 self-titled album "Creed Bratton," which features "All the Faces," the song used in the season finale of "The Office."
