The McDaniels @ Heartland Cafe


The McDaniels perform most often as a trio of Kent McDaniel on guitar & vocals, Dorothy McDaniel on bass & vocals, and Alpha Stewart on drums, but they also frequently add sax or a second guitar. Dorothy and Kent sometimes also appear as a duo with Kent on acoustic guitar and Dorothy on bass.

They’ve played Evanston’s Custer Street Fair for decades and regularly play Ravenswood Arts Walk and other Chicago area festsThey also appear regularly at Chicago area music venues like The Heartland Cafe and The Independence Tap. 

Below are three videos of their live performances. When the videos are playing, they’re significantly brighter than the stills you see down there. Unless your computer speakers are excellent, hooking up your headphones will enhance the videos’ sound dramatically.
