Big Dave, 7.18.2010
The Celebrate St. Louis summer concert series recently brought a trio of bands together for a great evening of entertainment - the Bosman twins, Jeremiah Johnson, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Long a St. Louis favorite, Dwight and Dwayne Bosman - the Bosman twins - brought their own renditions of jazz, R&B, funk and gospel to the stage to open the evening.
Following the Bosman twins was a relative newcomer to the St. Louis scene, Mr. Jeremiah Johnson. A transplant from the Texas scene, Jeremiah's star has risen quickly in this music town! At the same time, he's attracted one of our towns finest horn sections to perform AND record, the Sliders! You can always find his schedule here at STLBlues, and learn more about Jeremiah on his website.
Closing the evening was American blues/rock guitarist, Kenny Wayne Shepherd! Shepherd's decorated career includes four Grammy nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville Gibson Awards, the Blues Foundation's "Keeping the Blues Alive" Award and a Blues Music Award. In September 2008 Fender released the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Signature Series Stratocaster, designed exclusively by Shepherd. The inimitable James Brown referred to him as "one of the wonders of the world."
