Barrence Whitfield & The Savages

Doors 4:00pm • Music 8:00pm

Abilene Bar and Lounge and Bop Shop Records present

Barrence Whitfield is a full-throttle soul screamer in the spirit of Little Richard, Don Covay and Solomon Burke. . He has been described as the owner of one incredible pair of lungs, with limitless energy and unmatched enthusiasm for his music and his audience. Barrence is a rarity in this business--one of a few black, rock n roll singer/entertainers who, Spin Magazine says, maintains a frenzied performance. Whitfield is a performer so consumed with satisfying his audiences that he has been called 'crazed, frenetic and completely unhinged.' Barrence, the singer made up of equal parts Arthur Alexander, Nolan Porter and James Carr this mofo burns.'
