If Memphis music is a genre, Southern Avenue has is it, and now they are bringing it to Simsbury, Connecticut. Southern Avenue is a band whose sound, while deeply rooted in the blues, explores soul, gospel, rock, and even pop forms. Propelled by masterful musicianship and powerhouse vocals, Southern Avenue (this year’s finalists in the 32nd International Blues Competition) consists of award-winning, Israeli-born guitarist Ori Naftaly and sisters Tierinii Jackson (vocals) and Tikyra Jackson (drums). Backed by some of Memphis’ finest – Daniel McKee on bass and Jeremy Powell on keys. Come experience this amazing band and their high-powered performance at the 2016 2 Left Feet Blues Festival.
