Performance Series: Marcia Ball

MUSIC STARTS AT 8:00 PM. No support act.

Reserved seating is not an option for this concert.

Marcia Ball honed her powerful singing and deft, rollicking keyboard chops while growing up in the small town of Vinton, Louisiana. It was and still is a hotbed of country, blues, gospel, Cajun, zydeco, rockabilly and Gulf Coast “swamp pop”. 

Full-tilt or subtle as the moment demands, this unabashed powerhouse is at home playing roadhouse rock, jump-blues, second line syncopation (a la Professor Longhair), R&B, deep soul, and ballads. What’s more, Ball’s great singing and songwriting are matched by superb piano playing that is eclectic and effective.

The New York Times says, “Marcia Ball plays two-fisted New Orleans barrelhouse piano and sings in a husky, knowing voice about all the trouble men and women can get into on the way to a good time.”
Rolling Stone Magazine writes, "Rollicking, playful, good time blues and intimate, reflective balladry...her songs ring with emotional depth."

Madison, Wisconsin, blues powerhouse group The Jimmys perform a sensational mixture of blues and R & B. The group’s sound features killer horns, greasy guitars, funky keys, and an “in the pocket” rhythm section with the heart and soul the size of Brazil. After listening to The Jimmys latest CD, ‘Hot Dish’, Marcia Ball said, “Wow!  I love this record!  It’s funky and rambunctious and I was dancing from the first note.”  The music publication Downbeat called ‘Hot Dish’ one of the best albums of 2016.
