The only thing that should change is the cashless vendors , I like using cash and more people who use it the better off the US is , I understand the convenience of using a card , but cash is the better way to go. As always KWSB was overall Awesome we have seen them many times and I am just impressed with the fact that Kenny keeps the older players in the band , have been a fan of Chris Wipper Layton since seeing Stevie Ray Vaughan in the mid 80's , as he keeps the best time on the DRUMs , if you have not seen the KWSB make it a point and get out there and see some of the best Blues rock on the road today.

Kenny was amazing. Probably the best concert we've ever been to. We will see him again any time he's close to our area. Eric Gales is an amazing guitarist but it was too loud for us and not quite our style. Still it was heart-warming to see the friendship and respect between Kenny and Eric. We've introduced a couple of our friends to KWS and he now has a couple new fans. Thank you KWS for your mind-blowing performance.

Capitol One Hall @ Tysons Virginia We love KWS and were very excited to go to this event. The venue is beautiful! The acoustics were amazing. The seats in the “theatre style” room were very comfortable. My only disappointment was that the show was so short!! Started at 8 and ended at 9:30. I am not sure if concerts in venues like this are typically shorter?? KWS and the Band were outstanding. Definitely recommend seeing a show if you haven’t already!

About Kenny Wayne Shepherd

For the last quarter-century, riding shotgun with Kenny Wayne Shepherd has been the greatest road-trip in rock ‘n’ roll. Gone is the young Louisiana gunslinger who erupted onto the early-’90s scene with his burn-it-down guitar solos and gut-punch songcraft. The man he’s become is even more magnetic, still pushing his Fender Strat where others fear to fret, while diving deep into human truths and personal evolution with an honesty that only comes with miles on the clock. If that quarter-century journey has taught Shepherd anything, it’s that there’s no such thing as mission accomplished. A restless creativity has driven Shepherd ever since he taught himself to play guitar at the age of 7. A musician in constant motion, Shepherd has spent his career burning up the highways and crossing continents, bringing his unique style of rock/blues to the world.

Like all the great songwriters, Shepherd’s studio catalogue has always been the best way to get to know the reserved musician. His path was set from childhood, as he copped the licks from the records brought home by his radio DJ/Program Director father and was sent reeling from a “life-changing” meeting with Stevie Ray Vaughan to make his own stage debut at the age of 13. With early albums like his Platinum selling Ledbetter Heights, his Platinum selling Trouble Is…, his Gold selling Live On and The Place You’re In, the blues-rock scene hailed its most honest new songwriter and guitar hero with a plethora of awards including two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville H. Gibson Awards and two Grammy nominations. Shepherd continued writing, recording and touring, chronicling the highs and hard times, while dousing his shows with guitar pyrotechnics. “The first five years of my career,” he remembers, “I was on tour non-stop. I’d probably go home for two weeks a year.”

The year 2007 brought the ambitious Platinum selling DVD/CD project 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads, for which Shepherd received two more Grammy nominations. In the documentary, he and his band traveled throughout the American South to record with such blues icons as B.B. King, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Hubert Sumlin, Pinetop Perkins and David “Honeyboy” Edwards. 2010 saw the release of Shepherd’s long-awaited first live album, Live! In Chicago, recorded at Chicago’s House of Blues during the all-star Legends tour supporting 10 Days Out. The live disc debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Blues chart, marking the 5th time he had a #1 debut as well as receiving yet another Grammy nomination.

In 2011, the now seasoned performer and songwriter stopped off to release the acclaimed How I Go and in 2013, Shepherd became one-third of blues-rock supergroup The Rides, with legendary veterans Stephen Stills (Crosby, Stills & Nash) and Barry Goldberg (Electric Flag). The Rides toured extensively, and have released two acclaimed albums, Can't Get Enough and Pierced Arrow, that further illuminate Shepherd’s depth and proficiency as a songwriter, guitar player and now vocalist.

In 2014, the rocket-fueled collaboration covers album, Goin’ Home was introduced and 2017 saw the release of Lay It On Down which was followed by 2019’s The Traveler, which reaches across the battle lines of a planet that has never been so divided and showcases Shepherd’s ever-evolving songwriting. The Traveler also marked the 8th time Shepherd had a release debut at #1 on the Billboard Blues charts.

In an industry that's changed drastically over the years, Shepherd’s versatility and drive has served him well. He plans to keep making music and to keep touring, “I don’t have any intention of sitting idly. We're a live band, and when people listen to our records, I want them to hear what we sound like when we play live. I just want to keep moving and keep creating and keep doing what I love – for as long as I possibly can…”
