The Canada South Blues Society Chatham Kent is extremely proud to announce our Christmas Show, Saturday, December 8th, at the KBD Hall, featuring Southern Avenue. Southern Avenue is an up and coming band that is taking the world by storm. We have been anticipating this show for some time and we think it may be the show of the year.
“Southern Avenue’s debut album is the beginning of a legacy…What we have here, is a young, yet seasoned group of artists, who took everything Memphis has to give, rubbed their own magic on it, and are delivering it to us in a single serving. It’s not blues, soul, Gospel or R&B. It’s all of the above, blended in such a way to create its very own category.”
American Blues Scene
“This debut album from Southern Avenue is the tastiest thing out of Memphis since Gus’s Fried Chicken went national. Sounding somewhat like the Staple Singers doing an album of bluesy southern rock, this band will be huge, mark my words…Fans of acts ranging from Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings to the Black Keys will find a lot to like here…”
“Tierinii Jackson’s voice is stadium quality. There’s much more Beyoncé force than Memphis Minnie grit there, and it’s a blessing. To me, that’s what makes this band worth talking about. In addition to the ridiculous amount of talent you get by tallying everyone in this band, Southern Avenue is youthful and vibrant. They’re out here giving life to a genre too long dominated by people obsessed with emulating the past. And that’s a good deed done for blues fans everywhere.”
I Love Memphis
