American Roots Revue: Larry Long, Robert Robinson, JD Steele, Tonia Hughes

American Roots Revue: Larry Long, Robert Robinson, JD Steele, Tonia Hughes reunite at the Dakota Jazz Club and Restaurant in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Friday, November 18th for two shows.

American Roots Revue works from the core of America’s richest musical traditions of First Nation, gospel, blues, folk, rock and R&B. This November the revue returns to its roots with its original line up that includes acclaimed gospel vocalist and community leader JD Steele! JD joins musicians that will also include the show’s producer and community builder Larry Long, with powerhouse gospel and soul singer Tonia Hughes, and the American Roots anchor artist — the “Pavarotti of Gospel” — Robert Robinson.

Larry Long’s American Roots Revue boasts the artistic range to salute iconic America music heroes like Pete Seeger on what would have been his 95th birthday with a cavalcade of talent. And the poetic license to present artists in unique combinations with each other, like this must-see bill! It’s not unusual to see internationally known blues singer and writer Guy Davis with best-selling rockers like Dave Pirner from Soul Asylum, and rising pop star Chastity Brown with Minnesota’s favorite chanteuse, Prudence Johnson, all backed by a superlative band and vocalists who will make you feel like you’re going to a revival inside the intimate nightclub that is the Dakota.
