Powerful women will be bringing it to the Kraken stage on Friday, the 13th of January. The Mystery Hillbillies will be sharing the bill with Handsome Al And The Lookers, fronted by the lovely and talented Emma Davis.
The Mystery Hillbillies are so pleased to combine forces with another powerful female led band. Influenced by: Bonnie Raitt, Tina Turner, FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS, Delbert McClinton, Robben Ford Music, the Lookers bring the blues, r&b and soul music with the skill of seasoned veterans that they are.
“Handsome Al and the Lookers are just getting started as a band, but each member has been at it for many years. Dave Y and Alan most recently with the “Chicken Fried Blues Band,” Emma with “Big Mama E and the Cool,” Richard not so recently with “Nantucket” and “BJ Thomas,” Dave M with Al in “The Heaters” and also in “The Stormchasers.” Boils down to this … the guys can play and the girl can sing. Have a listen … it’s all in the music.” Here’s a little taste
As always, the Mystery Hillbillies will bring their special sauce of classic country, rockabilly, boogie and blues, combined with high energy stage presence and their infectious fun attitude. Hank, Patsy, Elvis, Emmylou, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Wanda Jackson. Fronted by the powerful vocals of Michelle Belanger, also known for her full tilt laugh.
This will be a great night for dancing, and celebrating powerful women, in this happening neighborhood bar just a few miles west of Carrboro. Music starts at 9. Bring your dancing shoes!
