ALLY VENABLE BAND with HELLEN BACH opening!
March 3 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Ally Venable – Powerhouse blues rock guitarist and singer, Ally Venable, is a product of the Lone Star State. Claiming that she’s been singing since she could talk, she was a member of her church’s youth choir. She began playing guitar around age 12, and has had her own band for about four years. Their most recent project, the album, No Glass Shoes, is making waves in Texas and beyond. For a young woman, still in high school, her voice is soulful, and gritty, just the way we like it. Especially when covering a song like Bonnie Raitt’s, “Love Me Like a Man.” Although the protege’ of Deep Elem guitar slinger, Lance Lopez, Ally also includes Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Samantha Fish among her influences. She has twice been named Female Guitar Player of the Year by the East Texas Music Awards, while her group has won Band of the Year honors, twice as well. Venable plans to attend college, but has no intention of giving up music. “God gave me a gift. I want to use what he gave me. Hopefully I can get far with it. I can’t see myself not doing music.” – AV
