Peaches Staten is a world-class entertainer who is known for jet-setting across continents spreading the joy of blues. One week she is in Europe, the next in South America, back to the states then off again at the drop of an e-mail to some corner of the world entertaining the masses.
Staten was born in Doddsville, Mississippi and raised in Chicago on a steady diet of blues, soul, gospel and R&B fed to her by her mom who was a member of the Whale's Inn Cicero Bunch Social Club and her stepfather was the DJ. She began her professional career in a zydeco band and an Afro Brazilian Samba ensemble and has gone on to work with the best that the blues has to offer and grace stages all over the globe.
Her new CD, "Live at Legends", is electric and Staten is engaging and energetic with a personality that pulls you into her inner cycle. She's not only the entertainment but she's also your hostess, your seatmate, your date and BFF all at the same time. She is an incredibly talented player and surprises the audience when she plays it on boogie blues tunes like "Hole in the Wall" or zydeco-influenced originals like "Gotta Find My Man." Her rhythmic style and musicality are impeccable and though you can't see it on the record, her high chorus line kicks and flirty two stepping give the audience a jolt which is translated into sound!
Blythe Gamble really shows what a Wild Woman of the Blues is all about. Her powerful vocals drive a powerful beat though the room. No one is left wondering what the Blues is all about after Blythe's spirit has gripped their heart!
The Stand Back Blues Band is a five piece blues band featuring the vocals and harmonica of legendary performer Bryan Koenig and the daring and powerful vocals of Blythe Gamble. These two are backed by one of the most potent, exciting rhythm sections you'll ever hear. Stand Back is on the ReverbNation Blues National Charts for the US! You'll feel the true Wild Woman spirit drive on through when Blythe and the band get down!
So come on down to the High Noon Saloon on Thursday, March 20 at 7:00PM. You'll be glad ya did!
