Laurie Morvan Band
Red hot blues rock that feeds your soul
June 24
8:30 pm
The Laurie Morvan Band is a 5-piece high energy, rockin' blues band lead by a fiery female lead guitarist/vocalist. A pumpin', thumpin', tight-as-nails machine from Long Beach, CA, the LMB has fired up over 700 festivals and club dates throughout the USA, Canada and Europe.
Laurie Morvan Band concerts feature the beautiful harmonies of Laurie and backup singer Lisa Morvan, as well as dueling solos between Laurie, keyboardist Tom Salyers and bassist Pat Morvan. Drummer Lonnie Jones drives this high-octane train. They are a tight-knit unit who love performing and recording CDs together. Their fun-loving enthusiasm leaps right off the stage...and it's contagious!
The LMB's "Fire It Up" CD won the Blues Foundation Award for Best Self-Produced CD at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis (within the blues community, it's like winning a Grammy).
The LMB made their first big splash on the national blues scene in 2008 at the International Blues Challenge, where they were finalists in both the live band and CD competitions, the only band in IBC history to reach both finals at a single competition. Other accolades include twice being named the House of Blues Radio Hour "Blues Breaker" artist of the week, a B.B. King's Bluesville "Picks to Click", and winning the Blues Festival Guide's Blues Artist on the Rise Award.
The band's latest release, Breathe Deep, follows the lead of their award winning previous releases. "Scary good. Get out of the business good. Why everyone doesn't know about this woman or her rocking blues band is beyond me." - Bill Scheft, head writer for the David Letterman show.
"Morvan is a stellar guitar player with consummate phrasing and respect for both the music and the spaces between the notes. She is one of the rising stars in the blues guitar world and anyone who wants to hear the future of blues guitar should pick up one of her CDs and check her out." - Blues Blast
