LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in downtown Laconia will host Lisa Marie and all Shook Up Blues on Friday, May 23 at 8 p.m. Admission is $12.
Not only a blues shouter in the tradition of Big Joe Turner and Wynonie Harris, this Boston native carries on the sweet gospel soul of Sam Cooke, the yearning of Hank Williams Sr., and cartoonish fun of Louis Jordan. From jump-swing to swamp boogie, Piedmont blues to funky New Orleans grooves, her deep husky vocals express an unmistakable joy. Lisa Marie tells her audience that "joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin". This woman is a storyteller, with a gift that allows you to fall deeply in love with a song - sometimes one you may have heard before.
Lisa Marie is joined by Dana Bonardi on Drums and Johnny Juxo on keys.
Catered dinner buffet available before the show. Call 527-0043 or 494-3334 for info and reservations. www.pitmansfreightroom.com
