Willie Porter: first took the stage in 2022 with a collaboration with 91.1 The Avenue. That show was so memorable we had to bring WP back… but with the full band. This is a night set for classic vibes by a 5 piece group that brings years of talent to the stage. Their stories and original music with a blend of tunes you know is a perfect blend of near perfectionism.
Guitarist, singer and songwriter Willy Porter has been touring solo and with ensembles of different sizes and shapes for over 30 years now. His current band combines Porter’s acoustic and electric fret work with the dynamic drumming of longtime collaborator Dave Schoepke, ever-present keyboardist/collaborator Dave Adler, songstress Carmen Nickerson on vocals and recent band addition Eric Madunic on Bass & vocals. Their live sound is a blend of grit, soul & space that moves seamlessly from folk & bluesy Americana to alt and progressive rock in service of Porter’s original tunes.
