Thursday, March 7, 8 p.m.—KILLINGTON— Sultry soul is taking over the Pickle Barrel as Kat Wright returns to Killington. The March 7 show will have Wright’s signature vocals echoing through the nightclub.
Known for her dynamic, yet delicately gritty voice, the Burlington native has been dubbed as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse.” Her stage presence is such that could bring peace and serenity to even the wildest crowd, leading them to an enchanting dimension. Soul flows effortlessly around the venue creating a sense of seduction.
The eight-piece group has toured around New England, New York City, Boston, Connecticut, and Maine. They have made appearances at the Syracuse Jazz Festival, The Montreal International Jazz Festival, and have supported names such as The Doobie Brothers. The band’s debut EP, “Introducing …” was released in 2013 and combined soul with jam band riffs and hip-hop influences. The EP was chosen as one of the top 10 best Vermont Made Recordings by Seven Days in 2013. In 2014, the group was voted Vermont’s best funk/R&B artist or group and best jazz/blues artist or group.
“By My Side,” the group’s first full-length album, was recorded in Brooklyn and released in November 2016.
Doors open at 8 p.m. and this is a 21-plus only show. Pickle Barrel is located at 1740 Killington Road, Killington. For more information, visit picklebarrelnightclub.com.
