Blues-infused rock n'roll group The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band will bring their chart-topping sound to Sam's Town Live! for one night only, Saturday, March 9.
Bandleader Kenny Wayne Shepherd began his career at a young age, sharing the stage with New Orleans legend BRyan Lee at 13 years old. Shepherd has since been listed among the top blues guitarists of all time by Guitar World magazine, along with legends B.B. King and Eric Clapton.
The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band debuted in 1995 with "Ledbetter Heights" and the album quickly rose to the top of the Billboard blues chart. The band followed up with "Trouble Is...", which also reached the top of the blues charts and featured "Blue on Black," a single that spent 17 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the rock charts.
In total, The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band has released seven albums, including the most recent "How I Go," which reached No. 1 on the Billboard blues chart after its release in August 2011.
Completing The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band are: Noah Hunt, lead vocals; Chris Layton, drums; Tony Franklin, bass guitar; and Riley Osbourn, B-3 and keyboards.
Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $30, plus tax and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.284.7777, or visiting www.samstownlv.com.
