Introducing…

Blue Empress All-Stars

 

Featuring Australia’s top blues talent

Blue Empress Artists is proud to present a group of Australia’s finest Blues and Roots Artists in the spectacular nine-piece Blue Empress All-Stars.  Fronted by seven Blues sisters, Fiona Boyes, Kerri Simpson, Cara Robinson, Leesa Gentz, Julz Parker, Alison Penney, and Sweet Felicia, they are joined by Hammond B3 and sax maestro, Tim Neal, and drummer/percussionist Mark Grunden.  With more than 120 national and international awards between them for their individual performances and recordings, they are a force to be reckoned with! From the Classic Era of the great 1920s Blues women they will take you on a road trip from New Orleans, up the Delta and through the Mississippi Hills, to Memphis and Chicago via Appalachia and the Piedmont, with a swing out to the West Coast and down into Texas.  Whatever your style of Blues is, you’ll hear it from these artists.   But don’t get fooled into thinking this is a Blues cover band.  While these various Blues styles are apparent, from vintage to contemporary, they are clothed in the original songwriting and virtuoso performances of these celebrated Aussie artists.  They’ve often shared the stage with each other, sitting in, guest appearances, and through their bands.  Now, they bring their combined talents to the bandstand as the Blue Empress All-Stars
