John Shaw's R&B Round-Up

Posted By on Mon, Apr 21, 2014 at 12:45 PM

Wednesday night is starting to become more of a live music night in Memphis, with several venues beginning to book first-rate soul and blues bands. A couple of weeks ago, Memphis Sounds on Third Street downtown in the Econo Lodge began sponsoring Grown Folks Wednesdays, featuring veteran Memphis soul singer Rodney "King" Ellis and his excellent musicians, the Fifth Element Band. This past Wednesday, I got an extra surprise by the opening artist Jolynn Diggs, who I hadn't heard of before. She is a gifted singer, with a powerful voice, and made a perfect female counterpart to Ellis on the couple of songs they shared. Grown Folks Wednesdays at Memphis Sounds start at 7:30 PM.
