The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band is a veritable who’s who in rock and blues. The band features long-time vocalist Noah Hunt, plus drummer Chris Layton, a 2014 inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, ex-Firm bassist Tony Franklin and keyboardist Riley Osbourn (the latter is the former keyboardist for Willie Nelson).
The April 2015 tour follows Kenny’s highly successful 2014 European tour, Classic Rock Magazine said Kenny was “A figurehead for the next generation and no longer needs to prove himself to the fiercely protective old guard." While Metal Express said "Seeing these guys in full flow is what music is all about, passion, energy, emotion and is an absolute joy to watch."
Kenny Wayne will perform songs from his current album, Goin’ Home, which is an exploration into the music of Shepherd’s biggest influences, and features Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Warren Haynes, Keb’ Mo’, Robert Randolph, Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Pastor Brady Blade, Sr. and the Rebirth Brass Band. The album includes songs originally recorded by some of Shepherd’s heroes including B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King, Bo Diddley, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Lee Dorsey, plus many other Blues icons.
