November is Native American Heritage Month and the Seneca Nation has a number of events planned to celebrate the occasion.
Part of those events include musical performances by Native American artists. Getting the month of music started off was the eight time Native American Award winning band Indigenous who gave a performance in the Bear’s Den Showroom at the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino in Niagara Falls, NY on November 4.
Before Indigenous took the stage, award winning Six Nations performer Logan Staats took the stage with his guitar for what he call not quite rock and roll..more like subjugated rock.
Proving that he is not an ordinary performer, Logan asked the crowd if they were having an above average satisfactory time.
Noting that his mother was in the building somewhere, Logan performed original songs including one for his mother.
After a quick turn around to set the stage, Indigenous took the stage for the rocking Blues, but this wasn’t the cry in your beer kind of blues, but the get down and boogie Blues that had fans dancing in their seats with original music including a tune from the upcoming new album set for a release on November 11. The band had some advance copies of the album on hand for sale to fans after the show.
After ending the show with songs by Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, and Chicago; Indigenous left the stage to screams of more and encore…which the band obliges with one more song before meeting with fans after the show.
Members of the Yangton Sioux Nation, Indigenous call the Reservation in South Dakota home. After forming in 1998, the band has toured with B.B. King and the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
