Rissi Palmer house concert, Saturday, May 20


Rissi Palmer will play at our place on Saturday, May 20 (doors 7PM, show 8PM).  She will be in town to perform in a tribute to Johnny Cash with Brian Owens &The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra at Powell Hall the following day and we were able to put together this additional St. Louis show for her.  Here’s a little info about Rissi:

Palmer’s singles “Country Girl”“Hold On To Me” and “No Air” were all on the Billboard Country Charts, making her the first African-American woman to have a song on the country charts in 20 years. She has performed at the White House and the Grand Ole Opry on numerous occasions.

She recently released The Back Porch Sessions, a 5 song EP described as “Southern Soul”. This song collection blends together all her musical influences – from country to soul and R&B and has received rave reviews from publications such as Rolling Stone CountryPerezHilton.com, People Magazine as well as an appearance on the nationally syndicated Tavis Smiley Show and NPR’s The State of Things.

Suggested donation for this show is $18 adv/$20 DOS per person. As always, all this donated money goes to the band. To make a reservation, EMAIL REPLY ASAP (include number in your party).  Recently we have maxed out on house concert reservations very quickly (sometimes within a few hours!) so please reply quickly if you’d like to attend.

Once you’ve replied, we’ll send you an email that will confirm your reservation and provide details about how to pay and the usual info about directions/parking and food/drink.

This will be fun.
