Bonita & The Blues Shacks: Bonita & The Blues Shacks
(2015/CrossCut) 15 tracks. The singer from South Africa complements perfectly with singer Michael Arlt and the other band members. With an incredible amount of soul in her voice, Bonita Niessen interprets blues and soul numbers with an incredible amount of feeling, intensity and fun!
The South African-born singer gives the impression as if she had grown up exclusively with the music of Ann Peebles, Aretha Franklin, Ruth Brown or Barbara Lynn. In a feminine blues landscape dominated by pale guitar-clad and young ladies, especially in Europe, Bonita stands out elegantly with her charisma.
The combination of this unique singer with the BBs seems perfect to transport blues and soul from the heyday of the genre into the present. 15 songs from Magic Sam to Barbara Lynn on this first common and excellent sounding CD production.
