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.

Dinner is available at several superb downtown Port Angeles restaurants. “Where the mountains meet the sea.”

“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.”
