State Theatre

15 Livingston Ave.
New Brunswick, NJ 08901

Two of the most electrifying guitarists, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Robert Randolph, join forces for one explosive night! Blues-infused rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Kenny Wayne Shepherd's songs include "Blue on Black," "Never Lookin' Back," "Cryin' Shame," and "Show Me The Way Back Home." KWS Band members include Noah Hunt (lead vocals), Chris Layton (drums), Tony Franklin (bass), and Riley Osbourn (B3 and keyboards). Kenny Wayne Shepherd has sold millions of albums worldwide, received five Grammy® nominations, two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville H. Gibson Awards, the Blues Foundation's Keeping The Blues Alive Award, and two Blues Music Awards. He has had six No. 1 blues albums and a string of No. 1 mainstream rock. He is widely considered to be one of the best blues/rock guitarists alive and in 2008, Fender released the guitar that Kenny designed-the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Stratocaster. His latest record, Goin' Home, goes on sale on May 20, 2014. Named one of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," Robert Randolph's music is a distinctive mix of rock, funk, and rhythm & blues. Randolph & The Family Band hit the ground running in early 2014 in support of their acclaimed new album, Lickety Split. Of the pedal steel virtuoso, President of Blue Note Records, Don Was, says that Randolph is an "American Original" who has "mastered what is, arguably, the most complex instrument in the world and developed a unique voice that is equal parts street-corner church and Bonnaroo." The Family Band, which is comprised of Randolph's actual family members, includes Marcus Randolph, Danyel Morgan, and Lanesha Randolph, along with guitarist Brett Haas.
