“Victor Wainwright…is a force to be reckoned with on a piano. He IS honky-tonk and boogie, with a dose of rolling thunder. Wainwright’s playing is simply beautiful madness.” -American Blues Scene
Grammy-nominated and International Blues Challenge winner Victor Wainwright returns to the Palladium with his six-piece horn band, The Train.
Though his career began over a decade ago with genuine rock n’ roll honky-tonk, Wainwright has broadened his artistic scope over the years to include music representing virtually every corner of the blues. His dedication to musical discovery, sheer love for entertaining and insatiable curiosity have led him all around the world. The resulting perspective is a reflection of his passion for creating progressive roots music in an effort to move the art form forward. Composer, producer, vocalist, entertainer, and award-winning piano player; Wainwright is a raucous, high-octane, dynamic performer and crowd pleaser with soul to spare. This is Blues, Roots, Rock, and Soul, featuring the boogie piano and soulful vocals of Victor Wainwright, backed by one of the most gifted bands on the scene: The Train.
Opening the show will be Rev. Billy C. Wirtz, who will also join Victor during his set for a song.
