Emily Johnson Live

The Emily Johnson Band headlines Fridays on the Promenade, tonight. This 10-piece soul/R&B outfit has been delighting music fans in Siouxland with their high energy, passionate, and lay-it-down-to-get-you-up fun. Backed by a spick-and-span horn section and a rhythm section you could set your watch to, Emily Johnson has the perfect set up to let go. And she does. What a voice! 

Also happening this week:

Beth Hart has parlayed her sometimes otherworldly singing voice into a pretty successful career in the blues, having played with the likes of Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Slash and many others.  Her latest album is called Better than Home, and we’ll lead off with that on the 10 O’clock Blues.
