"Detroit's Queen of the Blues", Thornetta Davis and her band will bring their authentic and award-winning show to W&L on March 10. Thornetta has opened for blues legends B.B. King, Ray Charles, Etta James, KoKo Taylor, Johnny Johnson, Bonnie Raitt and more. She is a seven-time Blues Foundation Blues Music Awards nominee including two 2022 BMA nominations for contemporary blues artist female and best instrumentalist vocals.

"Down Beat Magazine"'s 2018 Monterey Jazz Fest performance review stated, "The follow-up at the Garden Stage on Saturday blew the crowd away. In her first time performing at Monterey, Detroit's Queen of the Blues, Thornetta Davis, sang with no-nonsense sass, fearless in her missives against lovers as she preached the blues".

Sponsored in part by the Class of '64 Performing Arts Fund and the Pauline B. And Paul D. Pickens Fund for the Performing Arts.
