Irma Thomas is the unrivaled Soul Queen of New Orleans and remains one of America's most distinctive and classic singers. Rounder Records calls her "a treasure from the golden age of soul music who remains as compelling and powerful as ever." A contemporary of Aretha Franklin and Etta James, Thomas's career has spanned 50+ years, including a grammy award, two Blues Music Awards and induction into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.
Marcia Ball has earned worldwide fame for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she strolls onto the stage. Her groove-laden New Orleans boogie, deeply soulful ballads and rollicking Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music fans all over the world.
Emily Gimble is a three-time Best Keyboards Winner of the Austin Music Awards and the granddaughter of the legendary fiddle player Johnny Gimble. She recently released her debut album, "Certain Kinda", which showcases her soulful, winsome, broody and bluesy voice. She has played with Asleep at the Wheel, Marshall Ford Band, Warren Hood and many notable others.
Georgia Bramhall comes from a famous musical family. Her father Doyle Bramhall and brother Doyle Bramhall II have influenced her love of music and performing. She began her career in Austin, Texas, and performs with Emily Gimble, Tameca Jones, Jimmie Vaughan and Doyle Bramhall II, among others.
All proceeds from the show will benefit American YouthWorks, a non-profit focused on building brighter futures and stronger communities through education, service and job skills training. For over 34 years, American YouthWorks has been transforming thousands of young lives and our community.
