Akina Adderley and Alejandro Escovedo @ KUT 11/8/11
Singer and songwriter Akina Adderley fronts the Austin funk band Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboys, a group of diverse and talented musicians that plays great old school R&B and funk music. The group has been applauded for their overall musicianship and Adderley’s rich, dark vocals. Alejandro Escovedo is a fixture in Texas music history, but he isn’t a fixture of any one genre. He has played punk rock, latin jazz, alt country, and Americana to great success across his more than a dozen solo albums. Akina Adderley and Alejandro Escovedo are both playing at ACL Live at the Moody Theater for the Khabele School Coming Up Together on Saturday the 12th. Listen HERE for their live Studio 1a performance with KUT host Jay Trachtenberg.
