Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboys Album Release Show Saturday at The Parish
All it takes is one time. You see Akina Adderley onstage and you instantly fall for her dynamism and her superstar performance. You want a show? This lady delivers with finesse.
The Austin-based singer-songwriter comes from an esteemed line of musical talent. Her grandfather is trumpeter Nat Adderley and her grand uncle happens to be saxophonist Cannonball Adderley. The greatest of the greats have paved the way for the next generation of talent. But rather than jazz, Akina makes her mark on the scene with some sizzling R&B, funk and soul, with her band The Vintage Playboys.
Adderley has been performing throughout Austin since 2009, right around the time she and the band released their self-titled debut album. Now they have a new release, Say Yes, which came out earlier this week. Akina Adderley & The Vintage Playboys are celebrating with a special album release show Saturday night at The Parish, 214 E. 6th St. Joining them on the bill is The Bus Stop Stallions and songwriter Graham Wilkinson. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the music begins at 10 p.m. Highly recommended, people.
