Kenny Neal

Kenny Neal, born in New Orleans and raised in Baton Rouge, began playing music at a young age. Learning the basics from his father, singer and blues harmonica master Raful Neal, Kenny is known as a modern swamp-blues multi-instrumentalist who draws from the sizzling sounds of his native Louisiana.

At age 13, Neal was playing in his father’s band and at 17 landed a job playing bass for Buddy Guy.

Frank Bey

Neal’s 2016 release Bloodline was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album and also won two Blues Music Awards — one for Best Contemporary Blues Album and the other for Best Contemporary Male Blues Artist.

Kenny Neal is the real deal and more poised than ever to deliver the blues like no one else can.

On stage, singer Frank Bey is radiant and powerful. His perfectly self-tailored suits are as sharp and polished s his smooth, baritone voice. Off stage, one might just miss Bey. He’s quiet, humble and focused.

Bey was nominated for Soul Blues Artist of the Year in 2014 and 2016.

Bey received multiple awards and nominations in 2019. His album Back in Business won a Gold Medal in the Global Music Awards. He was nominated in the Blues Blast Music Awards, the Independent Music Awards and the Independent Blues Awards.

He received two Blues Music Award nominations for Soul Blues Male Artist and Soul Blues Album for Back in Business.
