Marcia Ball is known for igniting a full-scale roadhouse rhythm & blues party every time she hits the stage!
With a piano style that includes elements of zydeco, swamp blues, Louisiana blues, and boogie woogie, The Boston Herald says “Ball plays masterful, red hot tracks from the Texas-Louisiana border. Her voice can break your heart with a ballad or break your back with a rocker.””
The Grammy-nominated performer has won a slew of other awards over her prolific career, including Blues Music Awards for “Best Contemporary Blues Album”, Contemporary Female Vocalist of the Year”, and four years in a row for “Best Blues Instrumentalist-Keyboards”!
“Rollicking, playful, good-time blues and intimate, reflective balladry...her songs ring with emotional depth.””
