We proudly welcome back gifted artist Herbie Russ to the Potter's Lounge stage. Much has happened in this singer-songwriter-saxophonists' life in the past year and a half. The most impressive being his performance on America's Got Talent in 2017. He received a standing ovation from judges Heidi Klum and Laverne Cox after his passionate performance of "With a Little Help from My Friends" - a song originally written and performed by The Beatles, and famously covered by the late-great artist Joe Cocker. Judge Simon Cowell compared Herbie's rendition to Joe himself - a true honor, indeed! Herbie pours every ounce of raw emotion in to every song he performs - making it clear why this Jackson native/Detroit based artist with the bluesy, soulful voice and masterful saxophone skills is in high demand at venues such as Bone Island Grille, Lone Oak Winery, Detroit Seafood Market (every Sunday for their fabulous brunch), The Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe, and countless other venues, festivals, concert series, and special events all across the state, and beyond. Herbie incorporates a mix of blues, R&B, classic rock, soul, motown, and jazz in to his repertoire....making for a night of music you don't want to miss! Come early for a good seat, and enjoy Happy Hour from 5:00-6:30p.m., featuring $3.00 wine & beer, plus our free appetizer buffet.
