¡gracias Angie and the fine people at Riverside Casino. The  Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band  sold out 1.26  and for extremely justified reasons. First Kenny and his top shelf band may be one of the tightest groups touring in their genre, and there are some damn fine artists in the ole guitar slinger circuit; Ryan McGarvy , Anthony Gomes, ring some bells. [box_light]Also, given that Kenny was a teenager when he hit gold and  not to mention the constant SRV comparisons, he was either destine to fail or  make a notch as a guitarist in his own band.  Record labels wanted him to sing but Kenny stuck to his guitar player role.[/box_light]

[box_light]Kenny stated that he has two new records coming out in 2013. One a collaboration with an unsung guitar virtuoso, Stephen Stills ( Hendrix played on Stephens’s first solo record). and a new Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band record. The Kenny Wayne Shepherd band consists of “The” Chris Layton of SRV/Arc Angels notoriety on drums,  Tom Franklin who was in The Firm on bass,  Riley Osborn of Willie Nelson fame on keyboards and 16 year vet Noah hunt on vocals. It behooves KWS to continue his bond with Noah as playing musical vocalist chairs has killed bands quicker than a Peter Frampton album cover.  If KWSB is ever close by do your self a favor, especially if you are not a fan of his “hits”, go and don’t forget you heard it here.[/box_light]
