Williamsburg Virginia Local Bands: Michael Clark Band

WilliamsburgVisitor.com Live Music Finder


The Michael Clark Band featuring Tracy Clark blends a variety of funky sounds into their shows. Powerful vocals and musical arrangements are reminiscent of Ike and Tina Turner but with a sound that The Michael Clark Band has made all their own. Along with Tracy’s incredible vocals, the band also features tight rhythm and horn sections that are guaranteed to get you grooving and moving. There are usually no set-lists. Instead, the band starts the show with an R&B instrumental before Tracy takes the stage – and the room – by storm. You’ll enjoy renditions of classic favorites mixed with Michael Clark Band original tunes, all performed in the band’s fun and funky style.
