Kilborn Alley Blues Band to perform at Sinnissippi July 9
Charlotte’s Web for the Performing Arts continues its Sinnissippi Summer Series with the Kilborn Alley Blues Band at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, July 9, at the Sinnissippi Park Music Shell, 1401 N. Second St. This event is presented by Charlotte’s Web and the Rockford Park District.
The Kilborn Alley Blues Band goes gritty Chicago blues and Southern fried soul for all generations of blues lovers. The music speaks for itself; better still, it compels you to listen. Featuring Andrew Duncanson on guitar and lead vocals; Josh Stimmel on guitar; Chris Breen on electric bass and Ed O’Hara on drums, this group rips out the blues with fire!
The Blues Blast, the formidable weekly blues e-zine, recognized Kilborn Alley Blues Band with two nominations for its 2009 awards. Kilborn Alley also recently walked away as the winning band for the Sean Costello Rising Star Award
“This is not only KABB’s best album to date, it is one of the best blues albums I’ve heard for some time. I read somewhere that their mission was to smile in your face and then kick you in the ass, musically speaking. They succeeded. These guys are special, and I have te bruises to prove it!” Rating: 10 out of 10. Morgan M. Hogarth, Blues In Britain Magazine, 2010.
