Popular Blues Guitarist To Perform August 19th
NEWTON, N.J., August 3, 2012- “I get up on stage every night to play my heart out and to try to turn people on their ear, man. I want to bring light into people’s lives with my music. If I can make people feel good for an hour and a half to two hours and forget about whatever might be stressing them out, then I’m doing my job.” Louisiana born guitarist and lyricist Kenny Wayne Shepherd infuses blues into rock and roll to create a sound all his own. His latest album, How I Go, features the hits Never Lookin’ Back, Cryin’ Shame, Show Me The Way Back Home and Who’s Gonna Catch You Now?
The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band includes Noah Hunt on lead vocals, Chris Layton on drums, Tony Franklin on bass and Riley Osbourn on B-3 and keyboards.
