Christone "Kingfish" Ingram's love of music grew from the rich Gospel sounds emanating from his family's church and the Blues music he regularly heard played in his Delta neighborhood. A cousin to legendary Country music great, Charlie Pride and trained at the Delta Blues Museum under the tutelage of Daddy Rich and Bill Howl-N-Madd Perry, Kingfish undoubtedly has music in his soul.
At the tender age of 6, Kingfish began playing the drums. Three years later, he took up the bass guitar. By the age of 13, he began playing lead guitar. Soon he was fluent in all three instruments and quickly added smooth vocals to his musical repertoire.
Kingfish's guitar influences run the gamut from the Delta Blues of Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, and Lightnin' Hopkins to the electric Blues of B.B. King, Big Jack Johnson, Lefty Dizz, Albert King and Buddy Guy to the Rock of Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Eddie Hazel. Not only can Kingfish play in the styling of his idols and mentors, but he also has an amazing ability to create guitar sounds entirely his own.
Through his young career, Kingfish has shared the stage with legendary names such as Bob Margolin, Eric Gales, Rick Derringer, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy and many more. He has played music festivals and venues all over the U.S. and has performed internationally in several countries. He's been a guest on the Rachael Ray Show and the Steve Harvey Show. Kingfish even performed at The White House for First Lady Michelle Obama.
After graduating high school in May 2017, Kingfish is now prepared to release his highly anticipated debut album in early 2018.

Danielia Cotton is a New York City based singer/songwriter originally from Hopewell, NJ. In 2010 Danielia was named Lilith Fair's Ourstage Local Talent Winner for NYC. Since then she has shared the stage with the likes of Robert Cray, Bon Jovi, and Gregg Allman. In the review of her Rare Child album The NY Times says this: "She's a belter who can hold back or work her way up to a gospelly blues-rock shout, and in the songs she writes with her band's brawny guitar riffs, she grapples with the road, salvation, holding on and letting go. The truth will set you free, but it always feels like it tears you apart, she sings. She's a throwback, but a gutsy one." Her latest studio album The Mystery of Me released December 2017 is a journey back to her Small White Town roots. Her new single, "She Too" is slated for an early 2019 release.
Venue Description: Fine wine and dining meets live music and more at this venue founded by Michael Dorf (The Knitting Factory). In addition to music performed in a warm atmosphere, they also offer a wide range of food and wine classes.
