An all-female gospel blues band will liven up the Music on Madison Stage in downtown Port Clinton on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 8 p.m., as Nikki D and the Sisters of Thunders perform. The trend-setting group have been international stars, with Nikki D the first Black female steel guitarist to play in Australia at the Broad Beach Festival.
The band’s unique style is gospel with blues riffs and grooves, all punctuated by Nikki D’s wildly soulful and electrifying steel guitar, bringing chills to her audiences with rich harmonic but thunderous sounds. Nikki’s musical prowess emerged at the tender age of 8. She is extremely gifted with her singing and playing a variety of instruments that range from keyboard to bass guitar, harmonica and drums.
Featured is her prowess on the steel guitar. Her soulful vocals command the attention of those hearing her raspy, but yet sultry voice.
The group is known for its powerful, moving, revival-like meeting performances with atmospheric vocals riding above a wave of infectious rhythms and grooves.
Nikki D and the Sisters of Thunder have travelled the country to perform at festivals, churches, auditoriums, competitions, colleges and clubs. They have opened for Jack White & the Raconteurs at the Mosaic Temple in Detroit, Mich.
