Toni Dodd and the SouthBound Blues will appear on Friday, July 23 in the Pine Mountain Club Condor Room. The performance is 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Toni Dodd was raised in a musically-oriented Italian-Mexican family. Her grandfather was a saxophonist who performed with the big bands. Exposed to music of all kinds at an early age, Toni and her eight siblings were encouraged to explore a wide variety of genres. She started singing in church, and even ventured out into Native American music before finding her roots in the Blues.Today she has a style that is a cross between Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raite, Toni Dodd’s vocals make you feel the blues down deep in your very core.
Toni has traveled around the world with The Southbound Blues, and has played at the House of Blues, Beale Street and with such blues legends as BB King.
Blues doesn’t get better than this concert performance by Toni Dodd and fellow Southbound Blues band members, husband, Eric Davis (drums), Rachelle Romeo (saxophone), Eddie Ray (bass), and Chris James (lead guitar)
