Kalliah and Blackwater

July 28, 8pm

This power house band based out of the Twin Cities plays a wide variety of music. Although they all come from a variety of musical taste this band has found the balance between blues, funk, Soul, rock, country, and even a touch of pop. Performing songs from artists such as Susan Tedeshci, Adele, Johnny Cash, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Ceelo, Maroon 5, Gnarls Barkley, Gretchen Wilson, Prince, Miranda Lambert, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and even the Beatles. This incredibly high-energy group is not only jump up and down fun but is also versatile enough to provide a more music-focused performance, meaning, these guys can really play! Sure, you can play the songs just like you hear them but many times K&BW puts their own brand of rocking to the song. At any given moment you may hear a violin solo in an Adele song, a raging guitar solo in a Gnarls Barkley song or even a banjo starting the intro to a Journey song. No matter the predicament or crowd age or mood in from of them, they are sure to put smiles on faces and feet on the dance floor.

Founded by Corey White, a Ho-Chunk Nation tribal member from Wisconsin, and Kalliah Jackson, a Wasco tribal member from Oregon.
