This 2023, the Capital City Blues Festival is in its fourth year! Every year, this much-anticipated celebration of soul, rhythm, and blues music delivers some of the hottest and most in-demand artists. This year, the stage welcomes the fan favorite R&B singer Tucka. The Louisiana-born singer-songwriter emerged in 2007 when he performed with Keith Frank & The Soileau Zydeco Band. Tucka has earned an incredible reputation as the “king of swing.” He has also released several massive hits, including “Pillow Talk,” “Candyland,” Work It Out,” and “Till the Sun Comes Up.”
Another much-awaited performer is Calvin Richardson, who is known as the “prince of soul.” The Grammy-nominated singer first took over the R&B world with his debut album, Country Boy, in 1999. Since then, he has released seven more highly-acclaimed albums, including the chart-performing 2:35 PM, When Love Comes, Facts of Life: The Soul of Bobby Womack, and America’s Most Wanted.
Pokey Bear will also set the night ablaze with his hits, “My Sidepiece,” “They Call Me Pokey,” “Good Foot,” and “One Night Stand.” Pokey Bear’s music style is reminiscent of James Brown mixed with contemporary influences from modern R&b and soul. After a successful career singing with the Louisiana Blues Brothers, Pokey launched his solo career in 2014. His debut album, Josephine Son Pokey, featured epicurean dance tracks, “They Call Me Pokey,” “Gingerbread Man,” and “Mr. Hit It and Quit It.”
