Renaldo Domino & Gina Bloom with The Heavy Sounds
7pm Doors, 8pm Show | 21+
Renaldo Domino blasted onto the fertile Chicago soul scene of the late 60s with a voice as sweet as sugar and deep grooves that sound just as fresh five decades later. Releasing singles on Mercury subsidiaries Smash and Blue Rock, and later Twinight records, Renaldo’s all-too-brief career has still managed to leave an impact to all those lucky enough to hear it.
Renaldo returned to the spotlight in 2007 when the Chicago reissue powerhouse Numero Group put him on the cover of their deluxe box set Eccentric Soul: Twinight's Lunar Rotation (which included other greats Syl Johnson, The Notations, and many more). Renaldo’s performing career began to flourish once again with shows around country.
Backed by The Heavy Sounds, Renaldo’s live performances continue to deliver with passion and precision. Making new fans young and old.
Born into a family with a legacy of musical talent, Gina Bloom began singing as a child and has been channeling the soulful sounds of Aretha Franklin, Etta James, and Otis Redding ever since. While she has an eclectic range of influences, she cut her teeth performing the rhythm and blues classics of Motown, Stax and Chess Records. Making her name as the lead singer of the band The Congregation, Gina has recently joined forces with The Heavy Sounds to carry on with the incredible legacy of Chicago Soul music.
