BEACON – Slam Allen Band; special guest Dan Brother Band
- Towne Crier Cafe
- 379 Main Street, Beacon, 12508 United States
The internationally renowned Slam Allen is a messenger of love. This dynamic entertainer uses the genres of blues, soul, R&B and a touch of rock and roll to deliver powerful, soul-stirring performances. Slam captures you with a voice that echoes Otis Redding, a guitar that immerses you in B. B. King and stage energy reminiscent of James Brown, all while captivating you with his own original music. An inductee into New York's Blues Hall Of Fame, Slam developed his stage craft and artistry with nine years on the road as James Cotton's lead guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, and he’s been raising the bar every year since then!
For those unfamiliar with the Hudson Valley blues scene, it can be surprising that the region has been home to such renowned blues talent as Bill Perry, Popa Chubby, Murali Coryell and Little Sammy Davis, among others. But it was under the tutelage of these master bluesmen that Dan Brother began his guitar-playing and singing career. Since his teens, Dan Brother has been performing in venerable blues clubs throughout the region. Having shared the stage with mentors like his, it’s no wonder Dan picked up a little of everything along the way – from protest-era psychedelia to straight-up blues; classic era soul to southern rock and Texas twang. Having turned all that early on-stage learning into a sound all his own, Dan’s high-energy performances are drawing fans new and old to an increasing number of gigs and venues every month. Dan’s fans expect a mix of blues, soul, rock & roll, and the band accommodates, with sets that go from low-down monstrous slow blues to booty-grooving ecstatic funk.
