I've been looking forward to this one all week. Lulu Hughes, mmm, mmm, good.
That's her pictured in the middle. The audibly contagious Canadian will bring her Madame Louise Project to Playing With Fire tonight (Thursday, July 3) at Turner Park.
If you're familiar with the passion and punch of singers like Janis Joplin or Aretha Franklin, then you can get a sense of what to expect from Hughes, a fiery, blues-fueled soulful singer who knows how to get an audience on its feet.
Get a feel for Hughes and her brand’s style by watching a video of her singing a revved-up version of Peter Gabriel's "Big Time." Just click on the link at right to see it.
Opening tonight's show will be young – as in teenagers – Omaha blues band Mojo Bag along with the Randy Oxford Band, a 6-piece horn-driven traditional blues and up-tempo R&B outfit from Seattle.
The night will conclude with a fireworks finale.
