Monday, December 31, 2012 - 8:00pm

SAY GOODBYE TO 2012 WITH BLUES BELTER,
SHEMEKIA COPELAND AND HER RED-HOT BAND.

TICKET PRICE INCLUDES: DINNER, SHOW, CHAMPAGNE TOAST, PARTY FAVORS, TAX & TIP. - PARTY LIKE IT'S 2013 !

From the softest whisper to a growling, full-throated blues roar, vocalist Shemekia Copeland boasts a dynamic range and a vibrant personality that together have the music world hailing her as a diva in the making.

Daughter of the late Texas blues guitar legend Johnny Clyde Copeland, Shemekia was schooled in his Texas-style blues. But her experiences growing up on the streets of Harlem have infused her music with a deeply personal touch that remains decidedly accessible.

Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, Copeland's shot at the eventual title of "Queen of the Blues" is pretty clear. By some standards, she may already be there. www.shemekiacopeland.com/

"She belongs to the school of blues belters whose roars could move rocks up hills" - Jay Ruttenberg, Time Out NY

Open: The Juke Joint 5 - This is high-energy Blues, rooted in many influences; from Mississippi Delta to Chicago’s Golden Age; the raw horn-driven urban jump bands of the 1940′s-50′s; the ecstatic irreverence of early rock and roll with a dash of rockabilly twang. This is blues with a beat, blues you can dance to.
