Grand Marquis

Artist Information

Over the past 12 years the Grand Marquis have logged more than 1400 performances, as far-flung as Seattle to South Beach Miami, but often in the midwest where they call Kansas City home.

The Grand Marquis’ music can bring to mind a variety of settings and places as well: Prohibition-era KC, the streets of New Orleans, 1950’s Memphis and even 1930’s Paris. But their sound remains grounded in a roots influence that keeps inspiring the Grand Marquis to create, innovate and build off a solid foundation of American music. Theirs is a style that defies the limitations of category, whether jazz, blues or swing, yet finds favor with a wide audience culturally, demographically and inter-generationally.

Their fifth and latest recording “Hold On To Me” follows almost three years behind their last, “One More Day.” In that time we can hear the band continue to mature and broaden their focus a bit, while staying right in their wheelhouse: swinging, bluesy ‘party’ jazz. Their original material (such as Night is For Lovers) stands solidly besides jazz classics (Exactly Like You) and forgotten gems (The World Is Waiting For the Sunrise). Sultry songs (Sway) bump into low down blues (St James Infirmary Blues) and Dixieland stomps (Milenberg Joys). This is definitely a recording to hold on to for years to come.
