NAOMI SHELTON & THE GOSPEL QUEENS
Naomi Shelton Davis and the Gospel Queens are Gospel Soul of the highest order. Within the Daptone family, Naomi's name resonates deeply as a rare and beautiful performer. When she sings, anyone present is intoxicated and overcome by the love and joy that pours from her.
Lead by legendary organist Cliff Driver, Naomi and the Queens, Enda, Bobby, and Cynthia, lay bare the roots of real Rhythm and Blues with a repertoire that spans from low-moaning slow rockers to frenetic funk-infused soul workouts. Guitarist Tommy TNT Brenneck and Bassist Bosco Mann, both haling from Sharon Jones' inimitable rhythm section, the Dap-Kings, add an extra touch of spice to what is already a resplendent mix of Gospel and Soul. For it's raw soulfulness and uplifting spirituality, Naomi Davis and the Gospel Queens is not an act to be missed.
