Good evening, Columbia! It’s getting chilly outside, but the music’s still going hot.
Over at the Mpix Stage at Seventh and Locust, Danielle Schnebelen was giving Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and ADELE all a run for their collective blue-eyed soul money. As an angrier, rock ‘n’ rollier version of Joss Stone, Schnebelen had the audience whooping and cheering for every long note.
But Danielle is only a third of Trampled Under Foot, a blues trio of siblings. The songs they played ranged from their newest song, “Wrong Side of the Blues,” to a version of “It’s a Man’s World” that showcased Danielle’s vocals and brother Nick Schnebelen’s guitar skills.
Partially through the performance, Nick brought his daughter Madeline up to the stage to join in playing “Evil Train,” a song written by the band’s late father. Like any dad, he made a plug beforehand that Madeline was selling candy bars for the PTA at the merchandise tent.
The crowd stretched all the way back down Locust to hear Trampled Under Foot. This was the band’s second appearance at Roots ‘N’ Blues, and it seemed like they had a large return audience shuffled into a brand new listening base. Although the band plays pure blues, Danielle’s voice and Nick’s ace guitar skills could make them appeal to mainstream rock listeners.
The talent of the band is undeniable and their energy on a stage backed by the setting sun was invigorating. Watching the three of them jam together, anyone could come to the conclusion that blues and soul are part of the three Schnebelen’s blood. It must run in the family.
