KID ANDERSEN’S GREASELAND ALL-STARS feat. Alabama Mike, D.K. Harrell & Lisa Andersen LIVE IN PORT TOWNSEND!
Four of the most dynamic and in-demand stars on the contemporary blues + soul + funk scene – together LIVE in the Pacific Northwest!
Norwegian-born guitar phenom Christoffer “Kid” Andersen tours the world with the multi-award-winning band Rick Estrin and the Nightcats and produces and engineers many of the most successful contemporary Blues albums at his world-renowned Greaseland Studios in San Jose, California. A Grammy-nominated producer and Blues Music Award-nominated guitarist, Kid has worked with Charlie Musselwhite, Elvin Bishop, and many other legends. During the Covid lockdowns, Kid’s extensive production work for the online video series “Can’t Stop the Blues” (winner of the Blues Foundation’s 2022 Keeping the Blues Alive Award) provided a vital musical lifeline for fans and artists around the world.
Talladega-born Alabama Mike is a force to be reckoned with: a masterful, hard-driving singer and harmonica player. He is one of the most creative, prolific, and socially insightful songwriters working today. Alabama can blaze up a good old blues shuffle that’ll have you moving and grooving, then effortlessly switch to a soulful gospel-tinged ballad. His engaging and jovial style of storytelling transports the listener through a full range of compelling and poignant emotions. Little Village Foundation released Mike’s most recent album, entitled “Stuff I’ve Been Through,” in 2023, to universally rave reviews.
D.K. Harrell is a 25-year-old guitarist and vocalist from Ruston, Louisiana, who has shared the stage with some of the most recognizable names in contemporary Blues — Gary Clark Jr., Mr. Sipp, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, and Christone “Kingfish” Ingram — to name just a few. Dedicated to the preservation and evolution of the soulful electric Blues style created by B.B. King, Little Milton, and other luminaries, D.K. has just released his debut album “The Right Man” (Little Village Foundation, 2023).
Some people were just born to make music. Lisa Andersen is of this rare and beautiful breed. Andersen is a vocal instructor, singer with Foreverland (the San Francisco based tribute to the music of Michael Jackson), and alumni of hit TV shows American Idol and Showtime at The Apollo. Lisa, “The Queen of Greaseland,” has performed on over 50 album releases in the last 10 years, including those by numerous Grammy and Blues Music Award winners.
Lorenzo Farrell (keys) of Rick Estrin and The Nightcats, David Hudson (drums) of The T-Town Aces, and Brady Kish (bass) of The Joe Cook Blues Band will join Kid Andersen’s Greaseland All-Stars for a night of smoking hot blues, soul and funk.
