Blues Series to Continue at Hard Rock Casino in Sioux City
Within a month of opening in Sioux City, Iowa, the Thursday night Blues Series was going so well, they committed to continuing it through the end of the year! Tickets for the next ten shows will go on sale September 27th at the Hard Rock Casino website. Remember when you choose "Table Seating/General Admission" for any of the following shows, you can enter the codeword "Crash" to get your tickets for just FIVE bucks!
Here are the next ten fantastic shows on the series:
Nick Moss Band, October 16th. 16-time Blues Music Award nominees and one of the baddest Chicago blues guitarists working today, plus singer Michael Ledbetter with his soulful voice makes this a can't miss show. NMB was in Sioux Falls in 2014 and were in studio with Crash.
Shannon Curfman, October 23rd. Curfman burst on the scene in 1999 as a 14-year old blues singer/guitarist out of North Dakota. Since then she's released several solo records and since 2010, she's toured the world as a member of Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker Band, singing 'Picture' with him each night while also singing background and playing guitar. With Kid on hiatus, Curfman has fired up her solo band and will put on a great set.
Corey Stevens, October 30th. Corey Stevens is a veteran blues man who has been on the scene since the mid 1990's. He's a past Sioux Falls JazzFest headliner and has a new album on the way this winter.
Devon Allman, November 6th. Devon Allman has stepped out of the long shadow cast by his father (Gregg Allman) and uncle Duane to be a musical force to be reckoned with in his own right. After putting on a smoking set at the Hard Rock in August, it made perfect sense to bring him back with his band again in November in support of his new release "Ragged & Dirty". Crash got a chance to sit down to talk to Devon before his show in Sioux City this summer.
Bernard Allison, November 13th. Like Devon Allman, Allison is also a second generation star who has worked hard to work his way out of his famous father's shadow (blues legend Luther Allison) while still paying homage to his roots. Allison is a smokin' guitar player that never disappoints in concert.
Too Slim & The Taildraggers, November 20th. Too Slim (Tim Langford) is not only a master of slide guitar, But he's also a composer of the highest regard. A supremely talented performer and composer who ranks with the best that blues/rock has to offer.
The Jeremiah Johnson Band, November 27th. Jeremiah’s voice is like another instrument in the group and displays a maturity gained from his travels through the Deep South and Gulf Coast. When these guys got together, genuine music magic happened! Sit in on one set, and you’ll have a new favorite group to follow!
John Nemeth, December 4th. Nemeth won Soul Artist of the Year at this year's Blues Music Awards and is a past recipient of the Entertainer of the Year Award as well. He's got a brand new album out titled "Memphis Grease" and is again at the top of the Roots charts. Get ready for an evening of soulful blues with some killer harmonica work as Nemeth comes back to Anthem!
Royal Southern Brotherhood, December 11th. The Soul of the South featuring Cyril Neville, Devon Allman, Charlie Wooten, Yonrico Scott and new member Bart Walker, will bring their brand of blues and soul to the Hard Rock in December, making up for the date they had to postpone in August. One of the top bands in the genre touring today!
Sena Ehrhardt Band, December 18th. The Sena Ehrhardt Band has built a growing fan base with her powerful vocals and a show that includes originals, including their latest release "Live My Life" to interpretations of some of the classics and artists that influenced them. This Minnesota band continues to be rising stars on the scene and one you'll be talking about after seeing and hearing them.
The Kinsey Report, December 25th. Celebrating their 30th anniversary, the Kinsey Report are Chicago blues legends who have toured with everyone from Albert Collins to Bob Marley.
