Kendi Jean Named Female Artist of the Year at the Texas Internet Radio Awards
The Kendi Jean Band has some exciting changes happening in 2023 - adding a 5th member to the band and switching from a female-lead only to a dual lead with Texas Singer-Songwriter Jered Harlan of the Jered Harlan Band. The 4-piece band has been all over stages in Texas this year, headlining the Peach Festival in Parker County, The Alvarado Old Settler's Reunion, Lewisville Western Days festival, opening for the Huser Brothers, and many more! You can catch a sneak preview of what's in store for next year with the newly titled "Velvet Smokeshow" band several places in December - Kicking off the Old Town Holiday Stroll on the morning of the 3rd in Lewisville, later that evening at Troy's at Texas LIVE! in Arlington, and out at Diamond D's in Granbury on Dec. 30th.
The band has a crowd-pleasing, ecclectic mix of musical stylings that stir together classic rock & roll, soul, outlaw country, and blues into their own special Velvet Smokeshow Sauce. Each of the 5 band members is a multi-instrumentalist, so you never know what you'll get a show but you know it's going to be some funky, excellent music.
