Boise, Idaho is hardly the place anyone would conjure up as a hotbed of soul music. But for John Németh, it’s where his love for the genre began—and the starting point for a journey that’s taken him from his first gigs fronting a teenaged band to five Blues Music Award nominations in 2013 alone.
The Sugarman Law Firm and New York State Rhythm and Blues Festival present the Fun Races at Labrador and Song Mountains. Entertainment will be provided by the Blues Fest All-Stars and even if you don’t ski, this will be a great party. If you do ski, form a team of friends and join the races held in a NASTAR format. What better for a winter event than a little downhill action in the snow paired with a bit of live music? Spread the word!
Devon Allman continues the legacy of the family name with his music by melting blues, rock, soul and various other genres. One can never leave a name as famous as “Allman” very far behind. There are traces of his father Greg in his soulful voice and his uncle Duane in his innovative guitar playing. According to Devon, the name both helps and hurts. There will always be fans who come to see him out of curiosity, “But they leave having a respect for the fact that I am my own entity.”
