Two great evenings of world class entertainment.
Upstage & Studio Bob’s in Port Angeles WA (118 E Front Street) present blues/rock legend Janiva Magness and her hot band Friday 4/22 and Saturday 4/23. Showtime is 8pm.
“One of the most fiery and original vocalists in contemporary blues and soul…”-MOJO. A phenomenal range of styles, a superb band, Janiva is known for her onstage vamping, a commanding performance from beginning to end. 5X Winner of Blues Female Artist of the Year and winner of B.B.King Entertainer of the year. 25 nominations in 8 years, including Album and Song of the year. You will not experience a better more thrilling show. The Chicago Sun-Times raved, “A master of the lowdown blues who is equally at ease surrounded by funk or soul, Magness invigorates every song with a brutal honesty.” All this in an intimate venue in downtown Port Angeles.
Today Janiva Magness is one of the most beloved figures in the Americana, blues & roots music world. She’s reached a larger more diverse audience with each succeeding album & developed a reputation as an over-the-top live entertainer that’s made her a staple of the international festival circuit.
While non-stop touring, Janiva is also Spokesperson for Casey Family Programs National Foster Care Month Campaign (her sixth consecutive year) & an Ambassador for Foster Care Alumni of America, promoting National Foster Care Month. Regarding foster care, Janiva thinks of Miracles -“In part because of my love of this music and how it has lifted me up, and in part because someone was brave enough to stand for me when I was much younger, and a Foster Child at risk.”
