Grand Marquis Bio
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, over 23 years Grand Marquis has played more than 2,200 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.
