Bonita and the Blues Shacks

Europe's world class blues export - B.B. & The Blues Shacks - appears in Newport Beach fronted by the amazing female singer Bonita from South Africa.

It's true!

Bonita is right on in the tradition of Ann Peebles, Etta James, Lula Reed and other unforgettable stars of the past.

The combination of this unique singer with the BBs seems a perfect way to transport blues and soul from the heyday of the genre to the present day.

Blues and Soul from the 50’s and 60’s are still alive and well, with this international touring band making an extremely rare appearance in the Southland.

Bonita's vocals complement perfectly with singer Michael Arlt and the other BB & the Blues Shacks band members. With an incredible amount of soul, Bonita Niessen interprets blues and soul numbers with feeling, intensity - and fun!
