Kent hails from Holly Springs, Mississippi, as the oldest Grandson and pupil of blues legend, R.L. Burnside. His playing dots the globe and the style is unlike any other type of blues: dark, hypnotic, yet inviting, and very danceable. The groove of North Mississippi hill country blues is the secret envy of all other blues genres. Along with his band of more than a decade, The Flood Brothers, you’ll be in for an explosive, not-to-be missed opening band!
The Flood Brothers are a three man THUMP MACHINE whose infectious melodies and animal rhythms will have your bones shakin’ outta your boots! Heavily influenced by the early Rock ‘N Roll sounds of Memphis and Deep Blues of North Mississippi, Gabe Meyer and Jacob Best add their own bend to the boogie that could only come from the muddy banks of the mighty Mississippi River. Hannibal, MO is where these boys and their music call home.
