Paul Childers presents The Three Kings: Albert, Freddie & BB

Dates: April 6, 2019

Paul is going to create a wonderful night, honoring three blues legends. We present to you, The Three Kings.

Albert King
Albert King (1923-1992), who was billed as "King of the Blues Guitar," was famed for his powerful string-bending style as well as for his soulful, smoky vocals. He brought us songs like Crosscut Saw, Born Under A Bad Sign, I'll Play The Blues For You. Albert was elected to the Blues Hall of Fame in 1983

Freddie King
He was an influential guitarist with hits for Federal Records in the early 1960s. His soulful and powerful voice and distinctive guitar style inspired countless musicians, particularly guitarists (Eric Clapton is a notable example). He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

King based his guitar style on Texas blues and Chicago blues influences. His best-known recordings include the singles "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" (1960) and his Top 40 hit "Hide Away" (1961) and albums such as the early, instrumental-packed Let's Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King (1961) and Burglar (1974), which displayed his mature versatility as both a guitarist and a singer in a range of blues and funk styles. He was one of the first bluesmen to have a multiracial backing band at live performances.

BB King
BB was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. King was known for performing tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing on average at more than 200 concerts per year into his 70s. From 3 O'Clock Blues to Sweet Little Angel, Every Day I Have The Blues to The Thrill Is Gone, BB stands on the mountain top!!

Paul Childers
Blending pop, R&B, and soul, Paul Childers is leading a new breed of singer/songwriters and guitarists. Hailing from Nashville, he is trying to challenge everything you thought you knew about the future of music. He finds a way to blur the lines cast between Stevie himself as well as Hendrix styles of guitar playing, a Motown rhythm section, and pop vocal melodies.
