Free Range Concerts Presents
An Evening With
Sunday, Mar. 15, 2015
6 pm - 10 pm
Among the perks of living in Indianapolis is being able to enjoy the world-class musical talent that calls the Circle City home. The really sweet part is when some of them become dear friends. That’s why Kim and I are ecstatic at hosting soul blues song meister Tad Robinson and his band for our first Free Range Concert of 2015. Dear friends, this is for you.
Tad needs no introduction to most Hoosiers, but for those not yet hip to the man, there’s this:
"From his Manhattan roots and his Indiana and Chicago musical upbringing, Tad has caught the attention of the music world with his seven Blues Music Award nominations (the Grammys of blues music) and his many recordings, including the song “Rained All Night” which was nominated for Blues Song of the Year at the 2011 Blues Music Awards. He’s a veteran of countless national and international tours, including many of the most important international blues festivals. With harmonica chops schooled by Big and Little Walter, Sonny Boy I and II, Junior Wells, and James Cotton among many, and vocals comparable to Otis Redding, Syl Johnson, Al Green, and Teddy Pendergrass, Tad ranks as one of the most unique and talented members of the international blues and soul communities.”
“Robinson places near the top of the list of the finest living singers of soul blues.” – DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE
“A velvet voiced collection of cool.” – METROMIX INDY
“Robinson sings with a range and smoothness of delivery that are exquisitely evocative.” – MOJO MAGAZINE
“When Tad Robinson dies he’ll be going to soul heaven.” – Blues Hall of Famer OTIS CLAY
Joining Tad for this show is a trio of top-tier Hoosier talent: Kevin Anker on keyboards, Paul Holdman on guitar, Jeff Chapin on drums and Dave Murray on bass. As part of the Tad Robinson Band, they form a tight-knit ensemble that delivers the goods with style and expert musicianship.
This Free Range Concert will be movin’ and groovin’. Please…don’t miss it.
Food and conversation start at 6 pm. Music happens at 7 pm. Pitch-in and BYOB. RSVP requested. Reservations required.
