“Based in Austin and steeped in New Orleans, Marcia Ball plumbs the richness of both musical meccas. From rootsy swamp pop and blues-drenched boogie woogie to languid ballads, Ball is equally comfortable with brash roadhouse romps and caressing love songs.” — USA Today

Marcia Ball’s groove-laden New Orleans R&B and driving Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite of music fans all over the world. Her music mixes equal parts simmering soul fervor and rollicking Crescent City piano. Come out and join Marcia as she performs songs from her Grammy-nominated Alligator Records CD, Roadside Attractions, at Loose Wheels, Texas in Denison on Friday, April 11, 2014.

Roadside Attractions finds Marcia Ball at her creative peak. Ball wrote or co-wrote every song on the album — something she had never done over the course of her forty-year career. Throughout the record, her stellar musicians add power and nuance to the music, perfectly complenenting Ball’s expert piano playing, slice-of-life lyrics and melodic, storytelling vocals. “What’s not to like about Marcia Ball?” asked The Austin Chronicle. “Scrumptious, Southern-fried boogies, blues and ballads with the infectious street beat of New Orleans at the core.”

Roadside Attractions is her fifth release for Alligator, and the fourth to receive a Grammy nomination. Ball received the 2013 Living Blues Readers’ Award: Most Outstanding Musician–Keyboard. She also won three 2012 Living Blues Readers’ Awards: Blues Artist Of The Year–Female, Most Outstanding Musician–Keyboard and Best Blues Album Of 2011 for Roadside Attractions. In 2012, Ball received a Blues Music Award (BMA) for the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player Of The Year. She has now won a total of nine BMAs. She was inducted into the Gulf Coast Hall of Fame in 2010 and into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2012.
