In other Kirby news, blues vocalist Alexis P. Suter and her full band have been added as special guests for the Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue show on Jan. 17 at 8 p.m.
A true vocal phenomenon, Suter and crew began wowing audiences as regular performers at Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, N.Y. When the legendary B.B. King first heard Suter sing, he was visibly impressed and said so after she opened for him in New York City: “It’s a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady.”
As special guests for The Levon Helm Band, Suter also played to sold-out audiences at the Beacon Theater, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, N.J., and Central Park’s Summerstage.
Tickets for the show are on sale now and are priced at $29, $39, and $49.
