Knock Kneed Sally brings an original mix of butt movin’ entertainment, rockin’ around the country playing 250 festival and shows every year. The uptempo message Knock Kneed Sally delivers is get up and swing that thing….. Stovepipe Perkins, the chief songwriter and vocalist of the group has a knack for transforming friends and situations into great songs…
Stovepipe, from Bastrop Louisiana grew up listening to blues player playing in the back of his grandma’s package liquor store, ” Yeah, it seemed like magic, still does…. man those guys could play” says Stovepipe. Many were veterans of Haneys Big House in central Louisiana. Knock Kneed Sally is gearing up for the 2014 festival season as they will be traveling throughout the country and hopefully at a club near you.

Eureka Springs Blues Fest, Eureka Springs Arkansas – June 3rd and 4th… Knock kneed Sally had a blast playing a double header at the Squid and Whale holding up our part of a Blues Fest that drew 80,000 music fans headlined by Coca Montoya and Tinsley Ellis. KKS did there part pounding out a 5 hour show as the girls were dancing on the bar until 2am.
We are thrilled to get this opportunity to play the Eureka Springs Blues Fest. Sharing the stage with Bramhall Brothers, The Bluehemians, Crosseyed Cats, and Lil’ Slim. The Squid and Whale will no doubt be packed and Knock Kneed Sally will deliver…
June 3rd and 4th
June 18th Sedalia mo. Mo’ Blues Cruise.
What a great day, great crowd and a good time opening for Grady Champion at the Mo Blues Cruise. Playing with the Doghouse Daddys made it even better.
KKS kicked off their set with 12 originals that got the crowd moving toward the stage getting their groove on…
Breaking out… saw Browndog killing it on lead guitar with Greg Canseco pounding out monster bass lines.
Knock Kneed Sally opened the Crossroads Blues Fest for Lil Ed and the Blues Imperials, Jimmy Thackery, and Sugar Blue. KKS had a blast opening the Crossroads Blues Fest to an enthusistic crowd.
KKS opened for Tinsley Ellis at Uncle Bo’s in Topeka. Tinsley put on a hell of a show and we’d like to think we did our part as well.
The air was electric as Knock Kneed Sally took the stage… well it could have been. Gotta give me an A for effort. KKS did a couple sets as the opener for Tinsley and had a great time. ” It was fun and we were able to play in front of new faces and potential fans” says Stovepipe Perkins front man for Knock Kneed Sally. It was our first time at Uncle Bo’s and Suki was amazingly cool and the venue is top notch and an additonal touch is that the people are there only to listen to music. Uncle Bo’s reputation is well deserved. 🙂
Thank you Suki.
Parkville Days were hot and Knock Kneed Sally made them hotter pounding through their set of uptempo blues and jump blues with abandon. We all dove for our water bottles as we finished. Our set included Originals “It Goes Down Fine, Kansas City Baby, Pounding on your Backdoor, My Blue Self, Don’t Talk to Strangers, Apparently, and They Closed That Joint and well as covers of Howlin Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson II and Muddy Waters.
The crowd built all the way through our set as we were like the Pied Piper. The main stage is on the edge of the festival and it was funny as we played our music seemed to draw people from the main runway out into the park. So it was fun to start with 400 and then finish in front of 1500 or so people.
Thanks to Mario Decastillo for making KKS a part of Parkville Days.
