In recent years, nobody has done more to ensure the blues remain an important part of the Austin music experience than Nakia. A consummate band leader and incredible vocal talent, Nakia has worked hard to keep blues & soul music thriving in the Live Music Capital of the World from the moment he arrived in 2002.
Since then, Nakia has appeared as a contestant on NBC’s #TheVoice, shared the stage with legends like #CeeLo, #SharonJones and #AlejandroEscovedo, and has become a vocal advocate for Austin musicians.
Catch him 5/18 when he brings his group the Nakia and the Blues Grifters to our stage for a night you won't easily forget!
