Seven years in the making, local blues bruiser Nakia has rejoined his faithful band for an exploration of his favorite genre! It’s been awhile since Nakia was featured on The Voice and only a couple years since his Blues Grifters blew us away with their cover of The Allman Brothers’ “Whipping Post”.
With his upcoming album, Nakia has doubled down on his backing band, paying tribute not only to the music that inspires him the most but indeed the band itself. The cover album Blues Grifter certainly takes what others have done well before him, but not without Nakia adding his distinct flair and making it his own. It’s been an exciting time for Nakia; he joined us for a My KUTX session last week, he’s putting on an in-store performance at Waterloo Records this Friday at 5PM and his official release show is 8PM this Saturday at Saxon Pub! Let’s get the party started right now with a bonus track covering Tabby Thomas – “Hoodoo Party”!
