KENNY NEAL & THE NEAL FAMILY REVUE
with special guest THE GABE STILLMAN BAND
Truck N Brew at Willow Glen Park / Sinking Spring
Tickets: $49 (General Admission)
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.
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.
Opening the Kenny Neal concert will be The Gabe Stillman Band, a three-piece machine that runs at full tilt for every performance. While their sound is unmistakably rooted in the blues, the band draws from the deep well of all American roots music.
Since landing in the final eight of the 35th Annual International Blues Challenge in Memphis and further honored as the recipient of the esteemed Gibson Guitar Award, Gabe and his band have been focused on expanding their footprint on a national and international level.
Based in Williamsport (PA), Gabe formed the band in 2015, shortly after graduating from Boston’s Berklee College of Music. Gabe’s first self-produced release “The Grind” received wide acclaim.
