Please see my website at www.granalouise.com, for in depth Bio, Media, and more viable information. This EPK includes 1 Video and 6 Songs. My Band is different because of our Repertoire,Flexibilty, Validity, Unpredictability,Versatility and Energy! We are not just another Blues Band. With Me my Band, you will NEVER be able to say, " I saw them last year, and it's still the same exact show!" I do everything from Authentic Blues, Jazz, Rhythmn and Blues, Soul, Funk, Pop, Country, Show Tunes , and Gospel. ( 1920's - Present) But With all of the different styles of music that I love to perform, my heartbeat is and always will be the Blues! Why? You may ask? BECAUSE IT'S FUN!! If people only knew how much fun Blues is, they might not listen to anything else. And I feel it is my solom duty to bring joy and a jiggle to the booty!

I don't need a lot of musicians, just very good ones! I have a Stelllar list of musicians that I work with. They all know my material and style, and they know and have worked with each other for many years. This works for me. With our combined energy and muscianship, we always draw in the audience and their participation. Unless all of the T's are crossed and the "i's" dotted, I do not name my musicians.

[+ Show ]
Grana' Louise 6 p.m., Gibson Crossroads Stage Bessie Smith channeler Grana' is Chicago's big, bras...Grana' Louise
6 p.m., Gibson Crossroads Stage
Bessie Smith channeler Grana' is Chicago's big, brassy feather-boa mistress, specializing in bold blues cuts with equally bold titles like "Annie's Fanny," and "Queen Bee." Sometimes swaying into gospel and soul territory, Grana' commandeers The Troublemakers as if every night were a headlining gig at the Apollo, which is why her debut, Hit The Big Time, sold out of every pressing. Watch for her dance steps.
