Alexis P. Suter Band
@ B.B. King Blues Club & Grill – Show @ 8PM (Doors @ 7:30PM)
When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis P. Suter sing a few years ago, he was visibly impressed – and said so after her opening set. Shaking his head in wonder in his characteristic way, he remarked: “It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”
Considering the caliber of performers who appear on the same bill as King, that’s a heady compliment. And she has earned similar accolades from other well-known musicians and performers, including Levon Helm of The Band and Dan Akroyd, better known in the Blues world as Elwood Blues, who called her “America’s number one contender for the new Queen of the Blues.”
A true vocal phenomenon, bass/baritone powerhouse Suter and her band began wowing audiences in the northeast as regular performers at Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, NY. “She is one of those wonderful spirits, she’s got her arms around you, you can feel that,” Helm has said.
Since then, they have been in demand at North American festivals and venues.
Their debut CD, Shuga Fix on Hipbone Records was well-received by the music community and played on the radio nationwide. The band also released a CD/DVD recorded Live at The Midnight Ramble, Just Another Fool, Two Sides and soon to be released Love The Way You Roll.
In addition to her voice, Suter’s real secret weapon is her top-notch band. At every show, audiences show their whistling, cheering appreciation for drummer Ray Grappone, guitarist Jimmy Bennett, Peter Bennett on bass, and singer Vicki Bell. – See more at: http://www.bbkingblues.com/bio.php?id=7030#sthash.WaReXTbT.dpuf« Back to Events
