(NIKKI D & GLORIA BROWN, of Nikki D & the Browns):
“If Jimi Hendrix played Sacred Steel, he’d sound and act like Nikki D.” (Guitar World)
Nikki D will be appearing with her sister, Gloria, a bandmate in Nikki D & the Browns. Just coming off a tour of Australia, Nikki D and Gloria will join us for Nikki D’s world-acclaimed Sacred Steel. Sacred Steel is a musical style and African-American gospel tradition of using lap steel and pedal steel guitars in church. It originally developed in a group of related Pentecostal churches in the 1930s. Robert Randolph is probably one of the most famous of the Sacred Steel players. Nikki D is also carrying the flag, in her own wild, and totally unique way. https://www.facebook.com/Nikki-D-The-Browns-aka-Sisters-Of-Thunder-134511779911049
