Dwayne Haggins at The Porch
Saturday, April 24 @ 10:00 pmFree
The Porch Southern Fare & Juke Joint at River’s Edge invites you to spend the last Saturday of every month enjoying the distinctive sound of Dwayne Haggins, who delivers a brand new take on the traditional country-blues and soul that he loves. Haggins has been described as “the love child of Hank Williams and Otis Redding.” “The John Legend of rockabilly.” And even, “the ‘what-took-you-so-long?’ fusion of Elvis Presley and Marvin Gaye.” Boston music critic Ed Symkus wrote, “He’s as comfortable covering rockabilly (Carl Perkins’ ‘Blue Suede Shoes’) and funk (Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’) as he is with his own material, ranging from the honkytonk of ‘Song About Nothing’ to the balladry in ‘Thanks to the Rain.’”
