B.B., Albert, and Freddy King have all departed but not before leaving an infinitesimal legacy of Blues. Every blues guitarist on this planet has been inspired, schooled, and enthralled by the works of these three Kings.
The Kings Of Blues Tribute band pays homage to these masters in a never before confluence of three of Portland's premier guitarists. A collective 150 years of experience resides in these masterful string benders. The list of accomplishments and collaborations of these players are endless but a sampling of their work includes Michael Osborn as lead guitarist for John Lee Hooker for 13 years, Kenny Blue Ray playing and recording with Marcia Ball and Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Peter Dammann as Paul Delay's lead guitarist and Director of Portland's Waterfront Blues Festival.
While Albert, Freddy, and B.B. each had their own signature and style, so it is with Michael, Peter, and Kenny. Each of these gentleman will showcase the nuances of the original kings of blues and add their own magic as well. Michael also promises to sing a few for you.
With all great blues bands, a solid rhythm section is imperative. On drums is Portland veteran John Moore whose resume reads like a Who's Who of Blues including William Clarke, Curtis Salgado, and Bill Rhoades. Holding down the bottom line on bass is multiple Muddy nominee KG Jackson. KG will also assume vocal duties and belt out, as only he can, many of your Kings favorites as well as some excellent originals.
This event is 21 and over.
