It's been three years since the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band has played in the area, but the long wait comes to an end Saturday June 28th at the Grand Falls Casino Events Center at 8pm.

Shepherd signed his first record deal while still in high school in Louisiana and after two decades on the road, he and the band are hitting their peak.

Shepherd, along with singer Noah Hunt, drummer Chris Layton (Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Arc Angels, Storyville) bassist Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder, session bass playing monster appearing on over 150 albums including Whitesnake, Derek Sherinian, David Gilmour, Roy Harper, Pat Travers and more) and keyboardist Riley Osbourn (Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett and has appeared on over 100 albums) will bring the house down at Grand Falls June 28.

This is Shepherd's third performance in town following headlining stops at JazzFest in 2005 and RibFest in 2011. They'll bring the great catalog from "Blue On Black", to "Shame, Shame, Shame" to "Slow Ride", through some Hendrix covers (Kenny and Layton are part of the Experience Hendrix tour again this spring) and some songs from the upcoming "Goin' Home" album.
