Great Music News for Montgomery.
Soul Sessions Volume 1 is the first in a series of concerts promoting Old School- New Soul Music and is headlined by River Region supertalents Eric Nettles and Rodney Wilkerson.
Emcee Tonya Terry states:
It was the best tribute they could give to those artists who paved the way for them. Eric and Rodney delivered powerhouse performances and proved that you don’t have to leave Montgomery to find some of the best talent anywhere! Bravo!!
Mega-voiced Eric Nettles can perform Luther Vandross with the best of them.
His versions of Never Too Much and If Only for One Night were superb and garnered much love from the enthusiastic crowd.
This is the best video we could find that captures the true power of his voice.
Here are a couple reasons why ANY serious musician or artist should have at least 1 video on Youtube, not only does it make your music available to fans but it also allows writers, promoters and such a way to link or embed that video in a blog or other website.
We could write all day about how awesome a performer is but a video lets people SEE and HEAR it for themselves.
Our standing offer to excellent musicians in the area is this. If you are playing at an event we are attending contact – editor@GreatNewsMontgomery.com – and he will record and post one video to our You-tube channel completely free of charge and feature that video in a future post on this site.
If we are not attending the event and you would like someone to record a song in full HD, edit in name and titles, optimize it for internet search engines and then upload it to multiple video sharing sites including Youtube and Google videos our sister company GreatNews Video will do it for a nominal fee of $49 as our way of showing appreciation to local talent.
This is a very time consuming service that is valued at $200 minimum.
Rodney Wilkerson AKA the Candy Man was up next up to keep the party going. He showed his dynamic musical range by performing a mix of
R and B, Blues, and Gospel. His rendition of A Song for You by musical legend Donnie Hathaway was off the charts.
Here is a video of him singing an original song off his debut album Serious.
The video is part of a Culture Shock webisode. Check out some of their work at CultureShock.ws.

One of the surprises of the show occured just after the intermission when
Sammy “Flea Market Montgomery” Stephens made an apperance to ham it up with Tonya.
Very Funny stuff
Now lets not forget the back up singers and band. As a group they were top notch and added serious production values to the show. Eddie could not get everyone’s name, but here is the deal. IF you were in the show and want credit for it, just write a comment below telling us your name and who you are.
We are looking forward to Soul Sessions 2 coming in the near future as this series is destined to keep “Good Music” playing for years to come.
Soul Sessions is Great News Montgomery.
