This cat was so amazing in 2018, that we had to bring him back: The Reverend Shawn Amos & The Brotherhood will play the High Dive on Sunday, January 19 with The Shakedown featuring Michelle Banfield also on the show! This will be the Reverend’s only club date in Florida this month.
The Reverend Shawn Amos & The Brotherhood is a deep roots collaboration between the Rev and some old friends: Drummer Brady Bale (Buddy & Julie Miller, Indigo Girls), Bassist Christopher Thomas (Norah Jones, Macy Gray), and longtime Rev guitarist Chris “Doctor” Roberts. Amos has gathered together his band the Brotherhood, creating a sense of home in his rootlessness. Blade, Thomas, and Roberts provide not only musical, but also spiritual and emotional support for embracing new territory, artistically and otherwise.
“All I’m doing is singing and playing harp,” the Rev says. “I couldn’t imagine making this music with people who are not friends.”
Unlike past Shawn Amos collaborations with Matthew Sweet and Solomon Burke, the Brotherhood is in it for the long haul. “Everybody feels pride of ownership,” the Rev says. ” This is the first time I’ve had the space to try to be more of a singer-songwriter within the confines of the Blues.”
The Shakedown is easily one of the region’s fastest growing bands and Michelle Banfield is a very dynamic and beloved performer, which makes them a perfect fit for this show!
