WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Featuring: Special Guests Devon Allman + Honeytribe When singing sensation Shemekia Copeland first appeared on the scene in 1997 with her groundbreaking debut CD, Turn the Heat Up, she quickly became, at 18 years old, a roots music superstar. Critics from around the country celebrated Shemekia's music as fans of all ages agreed that an unstoppable new talent had arrived. Shemekia released two more CDs: 2000's Grammy©-nominated Wicked and 2002's Talking to Strangers (produced by Dr. John), and in that short period of time, collected five Blues Music Awards, a Grammy© nomination, five Living Blues Awards, and was honored with the coveted "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" Award by the DownBeat Critics' Poll. Rock legend Robert Plant called her "the next Tina Turner." Shemekia has already had a lifetime's worth of career highlights, including performances on national television, appearances in films, and sharing stages with some of the biggest names in the music world. Honeytribe's music is feel based. Although featuring Devon Allman as the front man (yes from that Allman family), this band is an ensemble cast all the way. Allman has surrounded himself with the A-list of musicians from mid-west America. If you like music with feel and soul by artists like Santana, BB King, The Dead, ZZ Top, The Black Crowes, the Stones, etc. Appropriate for all ages.
