Alexis P. Suter Ministers of Sound preach gospel and blues at Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on March 31
From a press release:
It was announced today that the Alexis P. Suter Ministers of Sound will celebrate the recent release of their new live album with a live performance inside the F.M. Kirby Center’s Chandelier Lobby in Wilkes-Barre on Friday, March 31 at 8 p.m., presented by City Market & Café.
AMOS will be joined by special guests Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen for an evening of gospel and blues that will highlight the release of “Alexis P. Suter Ministers of Sound – Live from the Briggs Farm Blues Festival” (Briggs Farm Records).
Tickets, which are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the show, plus fees, will go on sale this Friday, Dec. 16 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased through the Kirby Center box office (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), online at kirbycenter.org, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale begins Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 10 a.m.
As a bass baritone, no other female blues singer currently equals the raw vocal power that Suter brings to the stage. In 2015, that voice earned her a nomination in the “Koko Taylor Award” category at the 33rd annual Blues Music Awards.
The live AMOS record marks Suter’s seventh studio release, including the critically-acclaimed “Love the Way You Roll,” which was released with the Brooklyn native’s five-piece ensemble in August of 2014.
The emotion is palpable at every Alexis P. Suter performance. That emotion is beautifully captured on her new live album, and it will be on display at the Kirby Center once again.
Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen released their self-titled album in May of 2016. Capturing the vibe of late ’60s blues-laced rock and roll, Pennsylvania’s premier power trio mixes retro-style and groove for a lightning-charged vintage style all their own.
