Performing Friday, October 25 at 8 pm, blues ensemble The Holmes Brothers with Sherman playing bass, Popsy on drums, and Wendell's blues-soaked guitar solos and church-inspired piano playing are also known for their amazing three-part harmony. From winning multiple Blues Music Awards to sharing stages and recordings with legends like Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Willie Nelson, Peter Gabriel, and Rosanne Cash, the band easily blends Saturday night's roadhouse rock with the gospel fervor and harmonies of Sunday morning's church service. Their most recent album Feed My Soul, produced by longtime friend and collaborator Joan Osborne, is an album of friendship, loyalty, and family. USA Today hails them as, "Glorious, rootsy R&B, gospel, blues and country. Full of soul and surprises" and the New York Times described their playing as, "soulful and uplifting gospel-drenched blues, street corner doo-wop, ballads, R&B, country and funk." Tickets: $19-$34
