Experience Delta Blues in Tupelo

Culver City, California - (August 8, 2006) - Powell Furniture has “The Blues” and they’re inviting retailers attending the Tupelo Furniture Market to join in. The company is hosting the Homemade Jamz Band at their showroom on Thursday night, August 17th, from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM. The Powell showroom is located in The Tupelo Complex in Hall 5.

“The Jamz band is made up of a Tupelo family of three children. The kids range in age from 7 to 14 years old and are a well known attraction at many of the historic blues clubs in the area”, said Dedra Owen, Director of Showroom Design. “We had heard tales of their incredible talent and tracked them down at a local spot in February. We we’re amazed at what we heard and immediately invited them to perform in our showroom at the August market”, Owen added

The Homemade Jamz Band’s beginning was when parents Renaud and Tricia Perry’s oldest son Ryan starting performing as a solo act at age 8. He was joined by brother Kyle, then 9, who plays bass guitar. Keeping with the family tradition, the boys little sister, Taya, started playing the tambourine at age 6. The family always had plans for her to learn something, but just did not know which instrument it was going to be. When she turned 7, she started drum lessons, this was just last October. When the need came for Taya to rise to the occasion in December, (much earlier than expected) she stepped up to the plate, & never missed a beat. Ryan is now 14yrs old, lead guitar & vocal, Kyle is 12yrs old, bass guitar, & Taya is the bands 7yrs old drummer.

“They’re simply amazing”, said Tom Liddell, Sr. VP-National Sales, “If you close your eyes and listen, you’ll swear you’re hearing a band straight from the infamous delta crossroads”, said Liddell. “When we saw them in February, we really couldn’t believe what we were seeing, or hearing. Ryan is a gifted, confident guitarist and will shock the audience with his vocals”, Liddell added. “We suggest that folks get there early, the kids can only play until 8:00 PM” said Liddell, “It’s a school night.”
