Kathleen Johnson, a/k/a/ Druscilla Abernathy, once lit up area stages with her sisters in Best Kept Secret. She’s kept that flame going with the BKS Vine and this weekend it’ll burn with new intensity. If you’re looking for a party, this is the place to be!
Come hear the wonderful harmonic blend of sisters Mocha, Rhonda, Kathleen Johnson and Mona with special guest vocalist Kiana Marie. On this evening you will be deeply touched as they fill the room with R&B stylings that can lift up any spirit and cause goose bumps. The family will be fellowship and getting fed on this evening!
This show will be a celebration of the music of Etta James, Teena Marie and Whitney Houston! With Todd Burrell on piano, Mario Dawson on drums, Keith Nance on saxophone, Aaron Bellamy on percussion, Steve Gripp on guitar and Andre Cannedy on bass.
The BKS Vine skillfully weaves classic R&B, jazz, gospel, and funk with the contemporary flavor of neo soul, pop, Latin, and original compositions. The result is a spiritually-driven, genuine sound that is food for the soul. Expect some special guests!
