This from Lafayette City Manager Steven Falk, a music lover and fan of all things Lafayette, who caught the buzz in the music world about a local gal with a stellar set of pipes.
Acalanes High graduate Nicki Bluhm and her Acalanes High guitar player childhood friend Deren Ney made, while driving in a van, a great video cover of the Hall & Oates classic “I Can’t Go For That.” One Patch commenter said Nicki and the bearded guys sound better than Hall & Oates.
It went viral, attracting more than a million views. And so Nicki and her band are heading out on tour and – in respect for their Lafayette roots – asked the promoter (Greg Perloff/Another Planet Entertainment) to book them for an evening at Town Hall Theatre in Lafayette.
Nicki and the Gramblers will be here on June 10. Come on out and see a small-town gal with a big time voice.
