Donnie Miller and Rude Awakening at MidTown Village in Tuscaloosa, Alabama


Donnie Miller and Rude Awakening at MidTown Village in Tuscaloosa, Alabama


Alabama Music Office.com goes to MidTown Village for their Music On The Green Concert Series in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We went there to attend a performance by Donnie Miller and Rude Awakening Blues Band. Donnie Miller is founder and CEO at The National BLUES Network and is a Booking Agent. He books touring Blues bands in Alabama. Backing Donnie is Johnny Dalton on drums and Willie Bee on bass. They play Diamonds Sports Bar in Huntsville often.
It only takes one time hearing Nashville's Donnie Miller & Rude Awakening to hear the effects of lead singer Donnie Miller's lifelong training. Honing his vocals in church beginning at the age of 4, Donnie left home at 18 years old and toured the U.S. for 15 years before signing with SONY Records for his 1990 debut album, "ONE OF THE BOYS", with Cyndi Lauper & Tommy Shaw making guest appearances on backing vocals. Donnie began playing the blues in 1992, discovering just where he belongs in the music world. The current lineup of Donnie Miller and Rude Awakening has been touring and recording together for the last 7 years. With an incredible rhythm section behind him, scorching guitar solos & "from the soul" vocals burning through, this group pulls an audience up onstage with them and is a valuable crowd-pleasing entertainment option for ANY blues-focused venue or festival!
