“Sari Schorr is simply too good to be typecast. She's blessed with an incredible voice, one so good, it's quite simply just about the finest voice in modern music.” -MaximumVolumeMusic. Manhaton Record’s award-winning band, Sari Schorr & The Engine Room make a special appearance at The Flowerpot in Derby Thursday, May 25th on their 2017 world tour. They'll perform songs from their critically acclaimed album, A Force of Nature featuring Innes Sibun, Walter Trout & Oli Brown. A jaw-dropping voice and live show that erupts like a volcano have catapulted Sari Schorr into the spotlight as one of the hottest new blues-rock singers today. The native New Yorker is taking the blues world by storm and with a voice that jolted legendary blues producer Mike Vernon (think Fleetwood Mac, Clapton, Bowie) out of retirement, it’s not hard to see why. It’s no wonder Blues Matters said, “The future of blues is in good hands. Sari is a gift to all of us from the Blues Gods."
Several years of touring the world with Joe Louis Walker and Popa Chubby granted Schorr notoriety and induction to the New York Blues Hall of Fame. Now she is heading up her own electrifying band, The Engine Room, and touring her Vernon-produced debut album, A Force of Nature, released on Manhaton Records in September 2016 and featuring legendary blues guitarist Innes Sibun. The group has earned a slew of accolades, including Best Vocalist and Best Album nominations from the European Blues Award
