Martin Luther King Weekend, Saturday, January 14, 2017 at the Dakota Jazz Club American Roots Revue will celebrate America’s richest musical traditions of gospel, blues, folk, rock and R&B.

This January, 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, award-winning singer-songwriter, Smithsonian Records recording artist 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.

Join these marquee talents — backed by an incendiary all-star band that features guitarist Cory Wong, who recently sat in with the Rolling Stones’ Charlie Watts at the Dakota for his 74th birthday in 2015!

Larry Long, Raldo Schneider, Clay Riness & Eddie Allen








These four amazing songwriters have not graced the same stage since the final episode of M*A*S*H* was aired on broadcast television and compact discs were about to replace the vinyl record. In that brief season they combined forces to regale audiences along the Mississippi River with their clarion call for celebration. No one who was there has forgotten those performances.

Ever since then they have been chasing dreams and demons and capturing them in their potent, poignant, jagged, and sometimes painfully hilarious songs. On this very special evening those songs will be released from boxes of wood and wire and the depths of their hearts.

Beloved, lifelong friends and comrades will make this a night to remember. Bassist, Larry Dalton will thump out the foundation of this musical madhouse and the guitar virtuoso, Dan Sebranek, will add dazzle and laughter. Storyteller Tom Thibodeau will remind us how simple and common miracles can be.

Friendship is the base of community. Come. Celebrate together.
