Jerry Butler

If Cook County Commissioner Jerry Butler can talk a good political game, it's probably because he learned it from talking a good soul and blues game as a member of the Impressions and as a solo singer. On this night, it's about the music, that old-school sound from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee in tunes such as "Only the Strong Survive," "He Will Break Your Heart" and "I Want to Do It To You." Those harmonizers of love, the Chi-Lites, featuring original member Marshall Thompson and R&B singer Garland Green, also are performing.

Why go: </b>If you fell short on Valentine's Day, here's a chance to redeem yourself.
<br><br><b>
Reconsider: </b>Who wants to go through that old catalog of music when you could listen to Anthony Hamilton and Raphael Saadiq?
<br><br><b>
Details: </b>7:30 p.m. Saturday at Star Plaza Theatre, 8001 Delaware Place, Merrillville, Ind.; $39-$49; 800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com
