The Reverend Shawn Amos
McIntyre Hall Presents
Friday, March 3 7:30pm
Blues and roots singer, The Reverend Shawn Amos, is an exhilarating entertainer whose performances are filled with the foot-stomping, call-and-response energy of 1960s’ Chicago blues shows. The son of music agent-turned entrepreneur, Wally “Famous” Amos and R&B nightclub singer, Shirlee May, Amos was raised in 1970s Los Angeles watching musical legends like Marvin Gaye and Quincy Jones at work. Amos began releasing a series of semi-autobiographical albums in the 1990s. Exploring, chronicling, and preserving black American music led him to the American blues songbook and a commitment to keeping this great American art form alive. Just as he has on stages throughout the world, The Rev leaves a lot on the floor: the breath into the bullet microphone, the laughter, the fret buzz, the defiant foot stomp – everything reverberating in a spirit-filled space, offering soul sustenance as only a well-crafted song can.
Joining The Rev on stage are Christopher Thomas (bass) and Doctor Roberts (guitar).
