Fronted by the charismatic Sammy Rae, the musical ensemble Sammy Rae & The Friends is a force to be reckoned with. Their performances are as fun and tight as the band is. The band’s chemistry, virtuosity, and vocal prowess are all things found in their influences from classic rock, folk, funk, soul, and jazz. With a lineup that includes a rhythm section, two saxophones, keyboards, and percussion, they’ve rocked sold-out venues across the Northeast, from NYC’s Terminal 5 to the Boston Royal, earning praise from NPR Music, the Boston Globe, and American Songwriter. But they’re more than just a band; they champion community and grassroots growth, with “The Friends” both onstange and off, being their devoted followers and collaborators, creating an environment of love and acceptance at their shows.
Their upcoming fall tour coincides with the release of “If It All Goes South,” taking them on an exciting journey through uncharted territory in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Idaho, and Minnesota’s own Palace Theatre. Even more exciting is up-and-coming talent Kiss The Tiger as an opening act, making this a double bill that will leave any music fan with a smile on their face. Already selling out their early 2023 UK tour, Sammy Rae & The Friends are a musical phenomenon that shines brightest on the stage, offering a night of fun for all.
