Alabama Shakes @ Royal Oak Music Theatre 5-21-13 (Photos)

The last time Alabama Shakes performed in Detroit was when they opened for Jack White’s solo show at the Scottish Rite Theatre in May of 2012. Now Alabama Shakes is in the midst of headlining a tour that is hitting stops in Europe, Canada, and the US. The soulful rock band easily sold out the Royal Oak Music Theatre due to the respectable buzz this group has generated for themselves.

Alabama Shake’s frontwoman, Brittany Howard, has been compared to such greats as Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin. She is a 24-year-old legend in the making that was able to hold the Royal Oak audience with the strength of her voice, her turquoise Gibson SG, and animated facial expressions. Her band provided noteworthy support in the background so that Ms. Howard could shine. This young star is developing her own on-stage personal and singing style. A few times the frontwoman addressed the crowd in a low showy stage voice that was a mix between Jack White and Elvis. Standout songs from the night included “You Ain’t Alone” and “Hold On.” Alabama Shakes played one new song during the encore, which left fans hoping for more new material in the near future.
