Akina Adderley & the Vintage Playboys is an Austin-based soul band whose unique sound blends elements of rock, funk, and old-school R&B. Front woman, vocalist, songwriter and band leader Akina Adderley lights up the stage as “the little woman with the big voice.” Her powerful presence is irresistible, and KUT 90.5FM declared her “phenomenal vocals call to mind the sounds of classic soul and R&B.” Granddaughter of jazz trumpeter Nat Adderley, grandniece of jazz saxophonist “Cannonball” Adderley, and daughter of Nat Adderley, Jr. (producer/pianist/band leader for Luther Vandross), Akina brings a distinguished musical pedigree to the Vintage Playboys, who are a tight group of players from an eclectic musical background.
