Gina Coleman & Misty Blues

On Wednesday 28th June, Frazer Theatre Music welcomes Gina Coleman and the Misty Blues Band as they Celebrate Queens of the Blues.

Tickets are £15 + booking fee. Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.

The Misty Blues band hail from Berkshire County, Massachusetts and have been on the music scene since 1999. The core band consists of lead vocalist extraordinaire Gina Coleman born to sing the blues sings with gusto and pure vibrato. Also, features Jason Webster on guitar Bill Patriquin on bass Ben Kohn on keyboards Jeff Dudziak on guitar Rob Tatten on drums and finally Aaron Dean on saxophone.

Their recent release “Queens of the Blues”, has eleven songs written by the band nine by the lead singer herself. They mix up jazz blues funk Cajun to produce a very effective and tight sound very infectious and has a sound groove to it. The title mixes dark tones on such songs as the ballad Will My Blues and mirrors this with sauciness of Dirty Laundry Blues with fine accordion backing by David Vittone. The sassy laid back approach to Fly With Me is certainly a favourite. There are obvious female blues singers influences such as Koko Taylor on tracks like the opening shuffle number Next Time Is The Right Time but it is the big band feel that makes this release so good. Kohn To The Bone has a Latino feel with fine guitar by guesting Matt Berger a jazzy instrumental. Another tempo change is on funky If I Didn’t Have You with again powerful vocals over riding sharp saxophone and guitar licks. Finishing with the bass infused catchy chorus on Doom Dom Doom with deep vocals jazzy piano licks and fine tone this really is a grower. A consummate band at the top of their game a real treat.
