She will be joined on stage by members of Christine Ohlman & Rebel Montez, including Cliff Goodwin (guitar), Lorne Entress (drums) and Michael Colbath (bass).
In 2017, she was inducted into the National Blues Hall of Fame of American Heritage, International and snagged Top American Vocalist honors in The Alternate Root’s international reader poll. His theme song for “30 Rock” was recently featured on NBC’s July 2020 special. Blending a fiery brand of Americana roots with a flavor of old school soul music, she delivers a style that has been dubbed by SIRIUS/XM’s Dave Marsh “Contemporary Rock R&B”.
