The feats and beats will all be treats as the artists deliver their best hits for a night of soul-stirring experience.
Blues is Alright Tour is a celebration where the group and renowned and emerging RnB share the stage for a night you will never forget. They visit cities in the country to provide the best R&B experience to fans, and now they will land in Washington, DC, as the Capital City Blues features talented artists of the industry. The lyrics and the guitar-driven musicality will spark emotions and a cathartic experience as the set brings down the funky vibes to everyone’s notice.
Renowned artists, including Calvin Richardson, will feature at the festival. The North Carolina star was inspired by singing with his mother as she is part of a gospel group that sings at events. From that, the gritty and contemporary/neo-soul artist made his name as he won Grammy Awards for Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best R&B Album, making him known as the “Prince of R&B.”
King George is also a contemporary R&B musician known for his feel-good transitions mixed with the old-school style of blues. The Mississippi star made his way to the top as he became an inductee into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and Louisiana Blues Hall of Fame.
Pokey Bear is more of a swagger bayou-soul musician as the star printed his style to Willie Clayton and James Brown. His blues mixed with soul is so good he dominated music awards, including the Southern Soul Music Awards, after bagging the Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year.
Tucka, known for his R. Kelly and Barry White-inspired tunes, leads the R&B scene as he fuses the blues, soul, and zydeco music that fans of every generation love. His sound that goes way beyond the timeline hits the listeners on the spot, giving him the title "The King of Swing.”
JWONN built his name with his musical prowess as he grew up looking up to every musical inspiration he got, including his mother and grandmother. His hit single I Got This Record became his start as he released several bangers afterward.
“The blues is a musical storytelling filled with stark emotion and revolving reality check. It’s authentically raw, transforming tragedy, adversity, and heartache into a visceral and cathartic experience”, a site said about the Blues is Alright Tour.
The much-anticipated 5th Annual Capital City Blues on the Blues is Alright tour will be held in DAR Constitution Hall, Washington DC. With a capacity of 3,702 seats equipped with high-end technology, it is suitable for a night of funky soul-biting music up for grabs. Book your tickets now!
