Kara Hesse w/special guests James Cowden & Lee Perreira (backing band - JC & The Tour Guides)
An evening with up and coming singer/songwriter/rockstar Kara Hesse with local Arizona favorites James Cowden & Lee Perreira.
Kara Hesse: "Someone recently asked me why I chose music, and the first thing that came to mind was...I didn't. When I was a kid, my dad would drag me out to the dive bars and get me to play with the cats there. He'd even slip me a thimble of whiskey to knock off the edge. Blame the Irish in us, but it's the truth."
Inspired by simple truths and conscientious themes, singer-songwriter, Kara Hesse is an artist with a refreshing sound and a pertinent message. Rooted in blues, classic rock, folk, and barbershop, Kara's midwestern upbringing later collided with her love for jazz, soul, & funk. She has toured with Denver's 103.5 The Fox's Groove Hawgs, opening for acts such as BB King, Al Green, and Buddy Guy at Red Rocks, and continues to build her fan base, while touring between states. She currently lives in Seattle.
This is going to be one of the best concerts of the summer season and it is not going to be some singer/songwriter mellow coffeehouse show. Kara, James and Lee will be backed up by JC and The Tour Guides. This group is a top notch backup band consisting of leader Joe Costello on drums, Todd Johnson on bass and various guitar and keyboard players.
You don't want to miss this show...you'll be able to say "I saw Kara before she made it big on summer in 2014!!"
