Anderson, IN.The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band featuring Kenny Wayne Shepherd (guitar, vocals), Noah Hunt (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, percussion), Chris “Whipper” Layton (drums / founding member of Double Trouble), Kevin McCormick (bass), and Joe Krown (keyboards) stopped by the lovely Paramount Theatre in Anderson, IN for a full on blues-rock immersion to a packed house. 

After spending the past year and a half touring behind the 25th Anniversary of his second album, Trouble Is…, Kenny thrilled the crowd when he decided to take it all the way back to his first album Ledbetter Heights and rolled into “Déjà Voodoo”, “Shame Shame Shame”, “Born with a Broken Heart”, and “While We Cry” before going on to play other fan favorites from his extensive catalogue. The energy was high and the band seemed to be having a good time throughout the (almost) two hour set; highlighting what KWS does best, playing the hell out of any guitar! Kenny fired lick after lick, prowling the stage and giving the crowd exactly what they came for! 



The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band will be out making their way across the U.S. with dates scheduled through October. Make sure to check dates for a show near you. It’s a fantastic evening of music that will keep you on your feet and dancing in the aisle, no matter what your age.
