I have always heard of the Blind Boys from Alabama, and have enjoyed their music over the years, but this was an awesome experience! Their voices were sharp and their new upbeat tempos and music had everyone on their feet. This is an experience and memory that I wil never forget. I was not as familiar with Bettye LaVette and her music was good but the night belonged to the Blind Boys of Alabama. I hope I will have the honor of seeing them again in the near future. The only downside of the evening was the food. This is my 2nd time attending The Howard Theatre since they reopened and the food is horrible. I had grilled chicken and I couldn't even cut it with a knife. My friends had the crabcakes (which was too spicy) and my other friend had the crab artichoke dip (which was very salty). we tried to get the attention of our waiter but that was a hard task as he was moving so fast we couldn't catch him and when we did, he could barely hear what we were saying. So in the future when attending a show we will just order drinks. Oh, the water was good...
