Trampled Under Foot (www.tufkc.com), 2014 nominee for ‘Band of the Year’ at the Blues Music Awards, will perform on Friday, April 11th at 8:00 p.m. at the Crest Theatre, 51 North Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach. The hot young band’s most recent CD, Badlands, which has been nominated as ‘Contemporary Blues Album’ of the year at this year’s Blues Music Awards, debuted at #1 on Billboard Blues, iTunes Blues and Amazon Blues charts. Tickets are $30 for reserved seats and $55 for reserved VIP seats, which include a meet and greet after the show. To purchase tickets, visit www.delraycenterforthearts.org or call 561-243-7922. Band members are siblings Danielle on vocals and bass and Nick Schnebelen on guitar, along with Jan Faircloth and Mike “Shinetop” Sedovic. The Schnebelens grew up with the blues, soaking up the music of their parents, who were active in the thriving Kansas City blues scene. With this serious pedigree in hand, Trampled Under Foot quickly rose on the scene and took First Place in the Memphis Blues competition, with Nick winning the Albert King award for best guitarist. “Trampled Under Foot is one of the hottest blues/rock bands in the country right now,” said Lee Babitt of Music Works, the organization producing the show. “This may be the last opportunity to see this powerful band play at such an intimate venue.” Trampled Under Foot has been the recipient of numerous accolades. Their DVD From the Emporium to the Orpheum received a best DVD nomination at the 2012 Blues Music Awards. Danielle Schnebelen was also nominated that year in the Instrumentalist—Bassist category. In the Blues Matters Writer’s Poll (UK) they were chosen as Best Newcomer. In both 2009 and 2012, they received the Pitch Music Award for Best Blues Band and were Band of the Year at the 2012 Blues Blast Music Awards. The band will also perform on Wednesday, April 9th at 8 p.m. at the Colony Theatre in Miami Beach and on Thursday, April 10th at 7:00 p.m. at the Sunrise Theatre in Ft. Pierce.
