There are many channels to Son Little's broadcast with varied stops on the dial, from blues to soul to funk to folk, with frequencies of Marvin, Otis, and Stevie in one amazing show.
His songs are deconstructions of the diaspora of American R&B. He deftly weaves different eras of the sound—blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll—through his own unique vision. Never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. “[Son Little’s] new album, called New Magic, is bumpy blues meets rooted R&B meets old school nu soul meets... well... magic” (NPR).
Mélissa Laveaux, a Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist of Haitian descent, opens with a mix of roots, folk, and blues using her signature percussive finger-style guitar stylings and soulful vocals. Singer-songwriter and guitarist Christopher Paul Stelling kicks off the night, plus enjoy a DJ set from Freddy DeBoe, who spins an all-vinyl DJ set of soul, blues, and beyond.
- Doors & DJ Set by Freddy DeBoe at 7PM. Show at 8PM.
- General Admission: Standing.
