Cindy Grill (Central Iowa):

Since January 2005, Hot Tamale & the Red Hots have been surprising blues music fans.  To date, they have opened for such national acts as Kelley Hunt, Grinderswitch, Harper, and Dr. John, as well as performing at such events as the Bowlful of Blues festival and Rollin On The River festival.  Keep watching to see what they do next! 


Annie Mack (Central Minnasota):

What do you get when you combine blues,roots,gospel,country and soul? A powerful and eclectic mix that makes up the rich layering that is the essence of Annie Mack. With a powerful voice, strong presence and captivating storytelling ability Annie Mack is a force to be reckoned with. Following in the footsteps of the Blues Women before her, she makes a genuine connection with her audience. She upholds  the tradition of "Testifyin" about the experiences of Life.


Jeni Grouws / Avey Grouws Band (Eastern Iowa):

Whether it's an intimate acoustic show or a rocking full electric band, powerhouse Jeni Grouws fills the room with soulful, soaring vocals. "She's a choir of angels on a runaway train."


Lauren Mitchell (Sarasota FL):

“I miss Etta a little less when I hear Lauren sing.” Josh Sklair – Grammy Award Winner, Producer and Guitarist for Etta James

“A soul-stirring voice and an arresting presence” Tony Braunagel – Producer, Grammy and Blues Music Award Winner

“Mitchell's powerful voice immediately punched me in the gut and shook me to the deepest part of my soul!” Blue Monday Monthly.


Lisa Mann (Portland Oregon):

Originally from West Virginia, Mann’s vocals effortlessly straddle the line between the honey sweet warmth of the south, and the force-of-nature sound Mann has cultivated by mastering everything from hard rock to rhythm and blues. Her clever blues balladry is complimented by her considerable prowess on bass guitar. Her bass grooves touch on the hallowed soil of soul greats James Jamerson and Bob Babbitt.
