A member of a rising country band is stepping into the spotlight on Saturday, April 19, to show off his solo side.
Laki Skouras, a member of the Billy Shaw Jr. Band, is one of a half-dozen country singer-songwriters participating in the latest installment of Arizona Originals, which features songwriters performing their original works and talking about the writing process. The event begins at 8 p.m. at Eddie's Cocktails, 8150 E. 22nd St., off South Pantano Road.
Skouras's music inhabits country, soul, rock and blues, with strong nods to neo-trad. Seeing him solo will be a treat; most of his fans know him best as the lead guitarist and backup vocalist/wing man for award-winning country singer Billy Shaw Jr.
Shaw joins Skouras on the bill with Grady Maguire, Brooke Kelsey, Keila Marie Womack and Mark Miller. Admission is free. Details: facebook.com/AZOriginals
