Whitey Johnson @11:30pm, Miss Lavelle White @10:00pm – $12 at the door @9:30pm. 21+ only.
Miss Lavelle White is the real deal: a living legend and queen of soul and blues whose rich history as a singer and songwriter is matched by the music she makes today. Emerging in the late 1950s on Houston’s legendary Duke Records, White has worked and toured with many of the great names of black music and spent a decade as the house singer at Chicago’s renowned Kingston Mines blues mecca. Since (finally) releasing her first album on Antone’s Records in 1994, she has proven to be a dynamic exemplar of the continuing allure and vitality of the African American musical tradition.
Hence Lavelle White continues on her musical mission thanks to her abiding faith in God and dedication to “…entertaining the people and making them feel good and seeing the smiles on their faces. And seeing ’em dance, seeing ’em holler back
at me and all that kind of stuff. I love that. I’m out there for them,” says Miss Lavelle of her public. And as for herself, “No matter what happens I’m being blessed,” she concludes. “And I’m thankful.”
