Live @ Sapolil - Lisa Mann Power Trio Blues/Rock/Funk
Date:
April 4, 2014
Location:
Sapolil Cellars
Description:
Powerhouse bassist and front woman Lisa Mann has been a mainstay of the Northwest music scene for several years, and have graced the stage at some of the finest blues events, such as the Waterfront Blues Festival, Bronze Blues & Brews, Untapped Blues Festival, Sunbanks and more. Lisa is a proud inductee into the Cascade Blues Association’s Hall of Fame after winning the Muddy Waters Award for Bass Player of the Year three times in a row. In Nov of 2012, Lisa took home the Muddy for Bass yet again, and to top that off, she took home Female Vocalist of the Year and her “Really Good Band” won Contemporary Blues Act of the Year. Lisa also won the Portland Music Award for Outstanding Achievement in Blues in 2012. Her influences run the gamut, from low down blues sisters Etta James and Koko Taylor, to singer-songwriters like Bonnie Raitt and Sheryl Crow, to R&B belters like Little Milton. She writes the majority of her recorded material, and her songs paint pictures of a gritty (and sometimes humorous) personal experience in life, love and the not-always-pretty music business. http://www.lisamannmusic.com/ 9 - Midnight Cover: $10 or 2/$15 For more info: 509-520-1273 Enjoy a Full Bar, open until 2 a.m. Featuring Sapolil Cellars Wine, Beer on Tap and by the Bottle, and a full menu of hard liquor libations.
