Bio

Lisa Chavous & The Philadelphia Blues Messengers are a rock-solid innovative Philadelphia blues quintet. They have established their reputation as a good-time jam band by playing and singing the soulful music of Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and Elmore James. And their original compositions reflect the band's respect for and interest in groove-driven roots music. They have forged a connection to world beat music and avant-garde jazz through their long association with Philly saxophone legend Byard Lancaster and didgereedoo guru and percussion powerhouse Harold Smith. The Blues Messengers believe in the power of music to bring all people together, and in the power of the blues as an ancient connection to basic life energy.

Their new CD, The Underground Hustle, was voted best self produced blues CD of the year by the Central Pennsylvania Blues Society, and is a candidate for best self produced blues CD at the 2013 International Blues Conference in Memphis Tennessee. “I Don’t Want to Make Love to Your Man,” from their latest CD, has been selected as one of the top 15 original blues songs of the year by nationally published Big City Rhythm and Blues Magazine. It is included on the Black Cat Blues Sampler of top original blues hits of the year as distributed by Big City Rhythm and Blues Magazine; the song is a candidate for “coolest blues song of the year,” as determined by the subscribers and editors of the magazine. Additionally, WXPN Blues DJ Jonny Meister has been playing their originals “Sons of Abraham,” “Underground Hustle,” and “I Don’t Want to Make Love to Your Man,” on the WXPN Blues Show in Philadelphia, PA.

The group has received favorable reviews in Paris Jazz Magazine, Big City Rhythm and Blues Magazine, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia City Paper, Philadelphia Weekly, the Philadelphia Tribune, Mt. Airy Times, Chestnut Hill Local, and Scoop Newspapers.

Having performed venues such as the Electric Factory, The Philadelphia Academy of Music, The West Oak Lane Jazz Festival, and World Café Live, Lisa Chavous & The Philadelphia Blues Messengers continue to further their acclaim by spreading their message of world peace with the uniting power of music.
