We here at Nippertown.com are very excited about this concert, and we’re giving away a pair of tix for the show. Just go here for details. We’ll be picking a winner later today, so enter now.
And we were going to write this big, long story about what an incredible soul singer Ms. LaVette is. We were going to rave about previous performances of her’s that we’ve seen at the Iron Horse Music Hall and the Freihofer’s Jazz Festival. But then we realized that we didn’t have to. All we really need to do is give you the opportunity to hear her sing. So here you go, Bettye LaVette singing the Who’s “Love Reign O’er Me” at the Kennedy Center Honors:
We’ll see you at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on Sunday!

“‘Rockin’ Robin.’ I thought that was the best-sounding song I’d ever heard in my entire life. I guess I was 11.
It’s interesting that you say ‘bought,’ because we had a jukebox in our house, so for many years I didn’t have to buy any records. All the popular records were on the jukebox. It was so pretty. My family didn’t know that everything old was going to be new again, so it just went by the way.”
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall has a triple-powerhouse show rolling in this Sunday, with Sisters In Soul featuring Marcia Ball, Bettye LaVette and Maria Muldaur, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to a lucky Nippertown reader.
