Two fantastic acts, Ronnie Baker Brooks with special guest Lee Roy Parnell. Baker and his band were spot on amazing. Loved the horns and sax. Never seen someone play two saxophones at the same time. Ronnie Baker was sublime on guitar, Lee Roy was an added treat, and the keyboard player was off the chart on one piece.

Second act was just as amazing, Crystal Shawanda, Native American blues artist. Covering “I’d Rather Go Blind” was one of my favorites. Toward the end of her set, she dived into “Piece of My Heart.” She had me hook, line, and sinker.¬†Crystal had a special guest playing sax, Dana Robbins,¬† who is incredible! If you are in the Nashville area, she is appearing again Friday night April 10 at Bourbon Street Blues. Crystal is an act you don’t want to miss.
