Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboys @ KUT 9/19/12
Austin vocalist Akina Adderley fronts the local rock, funk and R&B outfit Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboys. With the band, Adderley serves as bandleader, songwriter, and frontwoman. Her rich and emotive vocals drive the nine-piece band, creating some truly awesome music and skyrocketing to the top of the Austin scene. You could say that music is in Adderley’s blood, with a jazz trumpeter for a grandfather, a jazz saxophonist for a granduncle, and a bandleader/producer/pianist for a father. Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboy will play a show at the Continental Club on Saturday, and will release their second album this fall. You can also hear them play live in Studio 1a RIGHT HERE.
