WOODVILLE – The Emporium Stage in downtown Woodville is bringing another live music event to the public this weekend. Regional blues-rockers Ina Dilemma will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 2.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and tickets are $15 for general admission. All proceeds from the show will go toward the Emporium Stage and its efforts to continue bringing quality live entertainment to Woodville.
Singer/guitarist Kirsten Hardmant will open the show. Hardmant will start at 6:15 p.m. and has played around town at venues such as Doretta’s Lair and the Magnolia Bar and Grill as a solo act.
She draws from a large repertoire of classic singer-songwriter-type rock and soft rock songs, including covers of Tom Petty and James Taylor.
Ina Dilemma, a four-piece band that combines elements of traditional rock n roll, electric blues and hardcore country, consists of frontwoman Felesha Sterling; guitarist/vocalist Michael Hanna and the rhythm section of Mike Jones on bass and drummer Krista Thompson.
The band has been active for several years in the area, and plays a variety of tunes, from blues-rock standards like “Pride and Joy” to Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman.”
The show’s organizers are encouraging the public to get there early to get a good seat. The show is BYOB.
