Shakura S'Aida

“For all the fun, the singer and her band were so talented.” – The Morning Call

Brooklyn-born, Swiss-raised, Canada-based Shakura S’Aida brings her uncanny ability to deliver powerful original songs and to get deep into the guts of the most venerable blues superstars like Etta James, Billie Holliday, and Nina Simone.  Blowing away audiences with her scorching vocal style, S’Aida brings emotion to original songs and classic standards.

“A stark field chant over drums that showed just how deep Shakura S’Aida’ blues roots go.” – The Morning Call


Doors open 30 minutes prior to show.  Ample free parking.  Cocktails, beer, and wine for sale.

Guests are encouraged to BYOF (Bring Your Own Feast) to our Friday Night Series, whether it be a picnic basket of your own munchies or take-out from the enormous array of restaurants within walking distance of BlackRock.
