Shemekia Copeland at The Dakota

I've been waiting to see her! It's a $25 show and tickets must be purchased in advance. I will buy my ticket on Oct. 2nd, so if anyone else is planning on going and wants to sit in the same area, please RSVP by then. I have a feeling it will sell out soon after.

7:00 PM – $25
At a young age, Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues. While only in her early 30’s, she’s opened for the Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous festivals around the world, scored critics choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic (The New York Times and The Times of London), shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, and has even performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama. Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, the singer was presented with Taylor’s crown on June 12, 2011 at the Chicago Blues Festival and officially given the honor as the new “Queen of the Blues” by Taylor’s daughter, Cookie.
Copeland’s passion for singing, matched with her huge, blast-furnace voice, gives her music a timeless power and a heart-pounding urgency. Her music comes from deep within her soul and from the streets where she grew up, surrounded by the everyday sounds of the city – street performers, gospel singers, blasting radios, bands in local parks and so much more.

      Hi Pat. I just sent a message to Lori to make sure she's ready to get her ticket. I think that if we get our tickets around the same time, we can select the same table. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back from her.
