The Wichita Blues Society's 20th Annual Blues Ball is moving to November 4, 2017. We are proud to announce the Wichita Blues Society's Blues Challenge Winners, Connie Hawkins and the BluesWreckers will kick off the show and The Jarekus Singleton Band will headline the event!
Jackson, Mississippi's award-winning guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Jarekus Singleton, is one of the brightest, most exciting young stars on the blues scene today. His cutting-edge, streetwise music -- melding contemporary and traditional blues with rock energy and hip-hop wordplay -- turns audiences of all ages into devoted fans. With his blazing guitar licks and strong, soulful voice, Singleton brings his up-to-the-minute take on the blues to every song he writes and performs. From ferocious and funky to slow and steamy to smoking hot, Singleton is a young blues master carrying the blues into the future.
Singleton's Alligator debut, REFUSE TO LOSE, features a scintillating ...guitar attack and lyrically startling original songs all sung with a natural storyteller’s voice. Produced by Singleton along with Alligator Records president Bruce Iglauer and recorded at PM Music in Memphis, the album is an impossible-to-ignore first step onto the world stage. With songs telling real life, streetwise (sometimes funny) stories brimming with surprising images, pop culture references, infectious rhythms and unexpected musical twists, Refuse To Lose unleashes a new wave of blues for a new generation of fans.
