Nominated New Orleans’ “Best Blues Artist” in the 2018 Best of the Beat Awards, slide guitarist, singer, producer and WWOZ-fm “Soul Serenade” host Marc Stone gathers all of the roots and branches to forge a smoldering, funky style all his own. Whether putting his originals front and center with the Marc Stone Band, exploring the deepest Delta roots with Son House protege John Mooney or celebrating the Creole Funk and Soul legacy with New Orleans’ vocal legend Marilyn Barbarin in the New Soul Finders!, Stone’s distinctive voice and touch set him apart from the pack.

Creole funk and soul legend Marilyn Barbarin burned her name into the annals of New Orleans music in 1969 with her Eddie Bo-produced funk firestorm “Reborn."  She was only 15 when she began to testify with her church-raised, God-given pipes. There’s no use in trying to stand still once Marilyn starts to sing.

Ernie Vincent is one of New Orleans’ finest and funkiest guitar men. His 1972 classic “Dap Walk” inspired the birth of the Dap-Kings band and Daptone Records, which of course introduced the world to Sharon Jones, spawning an entire musical movement two generations after its release.

Barbarin and Vincent will reunite for the first time in many years, along with Radiators/Professor Longhair bassist Reggie Scanlan, Dr. John drummer Terry Scott, Jr., plus soul smashing pianist and vocal goddess Lilli Lewis. Tonight, Stone and The New Soul Finders will pay tribute to the late great Aretha Franklin, as well as the original Soul Finder, Eddie Bo.
