The festival will feature performances by Lenny Williams, Latimore, Tucka, Clarence Carter, Theodis Ealey, Pokey Bear and Sir Charles Jones. Lenny Williams, singer-songwriter and musician, best known for his work during the 1970s. Lenny was the lead vocalist for R&B/Soul group, “Tower of Power.” As a soloist, Lenny made several hit recordings. Sir Charles Jones is a blues and southern soul singer. Southern bluesman Pokey Bear injects a larger-than-life swagger into his R&B-infused bayou soul. Latimore is a blues and R&B singer, songwriter and pianist. Influenced by R. Kelly and Barry White, Louisiana’s Tucka is an R&B singer who can deliver “pillow talk” songs that recall the ‘70s, ‘80s, and also the 2010s. Blues singer, guitarist and bandleader Theodis Ealey has earned his nickname as “the Bluesman Lover.” Theodis first made his name working with some of the best names in the blues, but he’s also won an avid following for his ribald R&B tunes about love and lovemaking. Clarence Carter is a blues and soul singer, musician, songwriter and record producer. July 20, 2018
