Dubbed by some critics as an upcoming “Southern blues-rock super group,” Southern Hospitality is breathing new life into revered music idioms for the next generation and have been compared to acts like The Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band and Little Feat. Big time accolades without doubt, but when you have a core group that’s made up of lap steel guitarist Damon Fowler, guitarist extraordinaire JP Soars and the 2013 Blues Music Award winning keyboard wizard Victor Wainwright, sparks are sure to fly every time they hit a stage. They share much love for the songs of the South. The hot jazz and funk of New Orleans, classic country, gospel, soul, and blues that became rock ‘n’ roll in Memphis and went global by way of a trucker named Elvis. The band is currently touring in support of their debut album Easy Livin’, produced by Tab Benoit who has said, “Damon, Victor and JP are the future of roots music.”
Southern Hospitality will be making their first ever performance in Portland at Duff’s Garage (1635 SE 7th) on Friday, September 6th for a 9:00 pm show. Admission is $15.00 and Cascade Blues Association members can receive a $1.00 discount by showing their current cards at the door for this co-sponsored event. Guaranteed to be one of the biggest shows of the year and certain to be packed. Don’t miss out!
