Grand Marquis @ The Zoo Bar
April 15 @ 9:00 pm$10.00
Grand Marquis is a big brass powerhouse, weaving old stories in with new tales for the 21st century. American roots styles from Kansas City blues to Memphis soul blend with the exuberance of a New Orleans second line party. A mighty chorus of horns, a groove-heavy rhythm section, and big, soulful vocals highlight well-crafted original music. Their live performances are equal parts celebration of our collective musical heritage, and hope for a brighter future together.
Based out of Kansas City, Grand Marquis has played more than 2,300 shows all across the US, and released 8 full length recordings. Also released vinyl recordings from Sun Studios in Memphis (“The Sun Session”) and a tribute to KC soul singer Tony Ashley (“Can’t Put You Down.”) Other highlights include The Blues Foundation International Blues Challenge Finalist in both performance and self-produced recording categories, as well as multiple Kansas City publications’ “Best Of” awards in both blues and jazz categories over several years. In 2022 their music was featured in the Peacock Network “Bel Air.”
