He's won two Premier Player Awards and was named "Entertainer of the Year" for three years in a row by the Beale Street Merchants Association.
With several brilliant blues CDs, Preston is known world-wide as a first-rate urban bluesman. He embodies the sound and spirit of Beale Street, and he's better at connecting with a crowd than almost anyone in town.

Preston can deliver a tight blues and R&B show with a 4-piece band, or he can add keyboards and horns for a big, soul sound.
