Alive After Five with the Wallace Coleman Band

January 25, 2019 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Wallace Coleman Band

A native of Morristown, TN, Wallace Coleman was captivated by blues music as a young boy listening to Nashville’s WLAC on the radio.  He left Tennessee to find work in Cleveland, Ohio, and was playing harmonica in Guitar Slim’s band when he caught the ear of Robert Lockwood, Jr., stepson of legendary bluesman Robert Johnson. He played in Lockwood’s band for ten years and performed on the Grammy-nominated CD “I Gotta Find Me A Woman.” Coleman formed his own band in 1997, and his fifth CD, “Blues in the Wind”, is a tribute to Lockwood. He continues to tour in Europe and South America as well as the US, and he returns to his native East Tennessee every winter to perform with his band at AA5 and other area venues.
