Grand Marquis Bio

Grand Marquis is a big brass powerhouse, weaving old stories in with new tales for the 21st century. With American roots styles from Kansas City blues to Memphis soul blend with the exuberance of a New Orleans second line party, Grand Marquis’ well-crafted original music features a mighty chorus of horns, a groove-heavy rhythm section, and big, soulful vocals. Their live performances are equal parts celebration of their collective musical heritage and hope for a brighter future together.

Based out of Kansas City, over the past 23 years Grand Marquis has played more than 2,200 shows across the US and released eight full length recordings. The band 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 being a finalist at the The Blues Foundation International Blues Challenge in both performance and self-produced recording categories, as well as being the recipient of multiple Kansas City publications' "Best Of" awards in both blues and jazz categories over several years. More information about the band can be found at http://www.grandmarquis.net/.
